Dantes takes the implementation of justice into his own hands because the limitations of justice in society (the criminal justice system) have allowed his enemies to go about their business unchallenged and unpunished. His belief was that even if he had unquestionable proof and was able to see his enemies charged, they'd still never see the punishment they truly deserved. His own form of divine justice will thus replace the human justice, which has allowed them to escape their dues.
