Once you start thinking about it, superheroes do more harm than good because half of the evidence they give to the police would be inadmissible.

As they have been saying, collateral damage has to be expected. For all Oliver knew, his kidnappers were going to kill him. Unless I'm missing something, those are the only ones he has murdered. I don't recall him going out of his wa to murder one of the people on the list in cold blood yet.
The argument wasn't whether it is legal. The argument is why are people(Starling City) going crazy about some guy killing/shooting a few people will arrows.

The point is that from the Starling City perspective, there is no list. Random rich people(who no one knows are evil) are being killed with arrows. Not guns or tasers. FREAKING ARROWS! Yeah, that's normal.

Those are in no way the same. That's like saying someone who strangles cats is the same as a big game hunter who trains and is licensed.

OMG! Well, they both enjoy killing animals!

Indy didn't go looking to kill a bunch of tribesmen.

No.
