What's the use of VIGILANTES??

I can't seem to figure this one out. What's the point of the vigilantes? I seem to remember them having some use in AC2, but I may be wrong.. They're always marked on the in-game HUD but I can't interact with them in any way. Do they come into play later, or am I just missing something here?

If you get into a fight with guards and vigilantes are near by they'll grab the guards and just distract them until you either run away or kill the guards

You can use the mercenaries, thieves, and courtesans to attack and distract groups of guard or as a blending option, but I have not heard of vigilantes. However, there are groups of folks around Rome who you may be referring to that will assist you when in a fight. They will stop guards from chasing or attacking you by grabbing onto them. You do not enable this as it is automatically built into the game.

Vigilantes will provoke and harass guards that you or your followers start a fight with.

Basically people that make fun of guards, if guards get near, they'll distract them, if your fighting, they'll help by punching, grabbing and hijacking guards.
