The Law Into your Hands

Take the Law into One’s Own Hands

People who try to take the law into their own hands are trying to seek for justice on their own. They do not ask help from authorities or people who can legally administer the law. Taking the law into one’s own hands is generally regarded as illegal.

Example:

Out of contempt, she took the law into her own hands and shot her cheating husband.
