I've always been a big fan of vigilante justice:

PRAGUE, Oct 2 (NCA) -- The Czech foreign ministry today summoned the Polish ambassador to protest a recent incident in which a Polish lawmaker seized a murder suspect in a Czech town.
Foreign ministry spokesman Karel Boruvka said the incident Sunday was in violation of international conventions and legal accords.
Polish deputy and private detective, Krzysztof Rutkowski, ordered several of his employees to break down a hotel room door and detain the suspect in Cesky Tesin, north Moravia.
Rutkowski then delivered the suspect to a nearby Polish border post.
Rutkowski told the Czech news agency that he acted on the request of the victim's family.
The 23-year-old man, identified as Dawid S., is one of three people suspected of brutally murdering a notary in the Polish town of Oswiecim.
The Polish foreign ministry had no immediate comment. (afp/ctk/ap) kn
