* The first episode of the TelltaleGames series ''LawAndOrder'': ''Legacies'' has one - early in the "Order" segment, a Russian diplomat, whose claim of DiplomaticImpunity is still being determined, is gunned down in the courtroom by the father of the woman he raped and murdered, very narrowly missing Abbie Carmichael. The rest of the game is Michael Cutter's prosecution of the father.

* The ''Series/BreakingBad'' episode "Half Measure" features Mike at one point tell Walt a story from when he used to be a cop. He came very close to executing an abusive husband by the side of the road. He eventually decided against it and threatened to kill him if he ever hit his wife again. [[spoiler: Of course, the husband later killed his wife. It says something about the bleakness of the show when VigilanteExecution seems like it would have been a the right thing to do in retrospect.]]

* In episode 19 of ''Series/DeepSpaceNine'', the crew investigates the possibility that a visiting Cardassian is an infamous war criminal named Darhe'el, who ran a labor camp during the occupation of Bajor. Eventually it is revealed the visitor is not Darhe'el, but a file clerk at the camp named Marritza who was posing as Darhe'el in order to draw attention to his crimes. Despite this revelation, Marritza is still murdered at the end of the series by a crazed Bajoran, who says the fact that Marritza was Cardassian was reason enough.
