Why not bring back Gibbeting and the Murder Act 1751?

I wonder if "In the name of justice" is often primarily more about personal bloodlust. Many people seems to revel in the notion of the downfall of a horrible person much more than they do in celebration of the many notably kind and wonderful people in the world.

Some folks prefer to expend great energy in following court trials and verdicts but it seems few positive solutions or justice ever arise from angry armchair efforts.
