Most of the people who were seeking gold were lawless men. With this came a lot of crime such as robbery, murder, and stealing others' claims. Because of this crime, vigilante justice started. I believe the Gold Rush began when gold was found at Sutter's Mill, but you may want to double-check that fact. Hope some of this helps you. : )
