* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Karen Page shoots James Wesley to death with his own gun when he tries to scare her into backing off of Wilson Fisk. Before firing, she heavily implies that she may have done something like this in the past:
-->'''James Wesley:''' [[FacingTheBulletsOneLiner Come on.]] [[TooDumbToLive Do you really think I would put a loaded gun on the table where you could reach it?]]
-->'''Karen Page:''' I don't know. ''[pulls back the hammer]'' [[PreMortemOneLiner Do you really think this is the first time I've shot someone?]]

** Another episode plays with it; a girl is kidnapped and murdered, and a previously convicted rapist is arrested for the crime. The girl's mother brings a gun to court and shoots him at the arraignment. Everyone supports her and is lenient to her, because she's killed the man who killed her daughter - until it's revealed that she and her lover actually ''[[MoralEventHorizon hired]]'' [[MoralEventHorizon the man to kidnap her daughter, in order to spite her ex-husband]]. She wasn't avenging her daughter, but ''silencing a witness''.

* In an episode of a show, a black man takes his sick daughter to a hospital and demands that she be treated by a white doctor, believing that black doctors are less competent. After some time, the white doctor comes out and tells him that his daughter is going to be fine. Some time later, a black doctor comes out and informs him that she has died due to complications. The father is enraged, believing that it was the black doctor's fault. At the end of the episode, he is found having just murdered the black doctor with an injection and is informed that it was the ''white'' doctor's fault, who has a habit of prescribing potentially lethal doses of medication to his patients.

What stops him is Joe being shot by one of Falcone's minions first. During his training by the League of Shadows, he rebels against them when asked to do the same. His claims that executing a man without a proper trial is wrong shows some character development from when he was about to do the same to Joe Chill.

* ''Film/{{Shooter}}'' - where the protagonist hunts down the villains, who have gotten away with everything, and kills them in their cabin - making the entire thing look like a gas leak.

* ''Film/{{Shooter}}'' - where the protagonist hunts down the villains, who have gotten away with everything, and kills them in their cabin - making the entire thing look like a gas leak. Bonus points for the Attorney General basically hinting that he should do that, knowing that there was no legal recourse.
