The confrontation was captured by surveillance footage from a nearby security camera. According to WWL.com, the victim-turned-vigilante wasn't done yet.

Doggone it, a person who defends himself is not a vigilante.
Vigilantes group together and hunt down and punish extra-legally those they object to.

To be a passive victim of one of Obama’s people is what they expect. When someone defends themselves that is when the name calling begins. The MSM would call this man who refused to be a victim a racist, an out of control vigilante, a hater, etc.

I cannot stand when self-defense is equated with vigilantism.

The famous movie Death Wish was often described as a vigilante movie. It was nothing of the kind. The lead character simply put himself into dangerous situations and then defended himself against those who attacked him. That is NOT vigilantism.
A legally questionable practice, but a far cry from the vigilantes who appointed themselves judge, jury and executioners of people they disliked.

A male friend, me, and another couple were in downtown NO to go to a restaurant. The two men put me and the other lady in the middle and they walked on either side of us. The men said people who work downtown, which was both of them, get off work, go to their cars in parking buildings and get out of downtown and don't come back until the next day when they again park in their company's parking building. The area where blacks live in subsidized housing is walking distance to downtown and they come in groups every night, taking over downtown. That is true, since they were in groups on the downtown streets at that time.
I wouldn't be downtown after dark by myself - no way.

Vigilantes were usually a little more formally organized than that.
The groups you describe are closer to the old lynch mobs, which were kinda sorta vigilante in nature, but again not really organized as such.
