** Instead of being sent to jail, the killer is rewarded with a 2-week tropical vacation. Everyone involved in the law refers to this as a "shortened sentence" due to "partial bail on the house" and an "inconvenient lack of vacancies anywhere else."



Historical note: This was first page to be created in the PlayingWith/ Administrivia/{{namespace}}, since it was also used as the hypothetical entry during the YKTTW for PlayingWithWiki. It was chosen because it was a straightforward trope that the author of the [=YKTTW=] was familiar with, having also been the author of the AssholeVictim [=YKTTW=].

** People learn to differentiate between [[VigilanteMan killers who take it upon themselves]] to punish [[KarmaHoudini Karma Houdinies]], and those who merely want to gain said status [[ForTheEvulz to do what they want]]. As a result, the Judicial System adapts, considering the circumstances and context of crimes to better decide on a fitting sentence.

** The victim is revealed to have been a much worse person than people originally thought, having simply hidden their most heinous actions from the public; the disproportionate punishment seems more fitting upon knowing this / It's revealed that other methods to stop the victim's bad deeds were used but failed (as the victim would use [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney bribes]], [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections connections]] or blackmail to get away and repeat the process); killing them was a last resort to end their actions.
