The legal system, punishments, judgment, and "justice"

I've encountered an interesting concept in a fantasy I've read recently (In Russian, roughly titled "and so the pendulum has moved") - a person to be punished was branded with a sign that signified that anyone and everyone in the particular area had the right to kill them whenever they please. This would be pretty unpleasant, I'd think.
In other words, outlawed. With the status irrevocable.
