"Be Just and Fear Not." The Committee of Vigilance was a vigilante group formed in 1851 in response to rampant crime and corruption in the municipal government of San Francisco. “We are determined that no thief, burglar, incendiary, or assassin shall escape punishment either by the quibbles of the law, the insecurity of prisons, the carelessness or corruption of the police, or the laxity of those who pretend to administer justice." This enamel pin measures 1.5" in diameter.
