Description

The old west took "being tried by a jury of your peers" a bit literally-thieves at gold camps were put on trial and flogged, banished, or hanged by colleagues without involving law enforcement. Hunting, settling new areas in the west, and a post-Civil War mentality made the area ripe for vigilante justice. Polish up your Colt revolver; "law and order" is more open to suggestion 'round these parts.
