a member of a vigilance committee.
any person who takes the law into his or her own hands, as by avenging a crime.
Orlando Fire Department tell News 13 it is a 16-foot white trailer with red lettering. It's in front of the Orlando Sentinel property, with flattened tires and no tags.
There is writing on both sides of the trailer with anti-government messages. Also written on it: "open at your own risk."
Underneath the trailer is a black box with wires attached.
Camden Apartments in the area has been evacuated while the bomb squad investigates. Orlando Sentinel employees have been told to move to the east side of their building.

You're right, as of now nothing has happened. But this is starting to look more and more like a vigilante scenario, in my opinion of course

I did read it and I stand by my point. I know what vigilante means lol.
I might be wrong obvioulsy, but to jump to something being 'vigilante justice' when we have no idea why it's parked there is a bit premature.
Nothing has happened. No one has been avenged. It's parked next to the Sentinel newspaper office, what have they got to do with Ritalin?
came across a troubling example of that this week while browsing The Globe and Mail website. The piece chronicled how prescriptions for Ritalin and other stimulant drugs for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Canadian children younger than 17 had skyrocketed more than 43 percent since 2005.
CHICAGO (AP) — The biggest study of its kind says Ritalin and other drugs used to treat attention deficit disorder are safe for adults' hearts.
The bomb squad has been on scene for several hours, and Orlando firefighters also have responded.
Sgt. Vincent Ogburn of the Orlando Police Department said authorities aren't sure how long the trailer has been parked at its current location.
Ogburn said the trailer's tires are flat and a cable is securing it to a palm tree on the east side of Colonial. He said the trailer does not have a tag.
"We don't know that it is targeting the Sentinel," Ogburn said. "It just happens to be where it [the trailer] is parked."
Jennifer Pham, a resident of the nearby Camden apartments, said she first noticed the trailer across the street earlier this afternoon, and it was covered with some kind of tarp. Later in the afternoon, though, she noticed that the tarp had been removed.
The bomb squad has positioned a robotic bomb-detection unit nearby. This is a breaking news story. Check back for updates.
