Mob justice

Thief who ‘robbed pensioner with knife’ is stripped and clingfilmed to a lamppost


From here: http://metro.co.uk/2014/11/28/thief-who-robbed-pensioner-with-knife-is-stripped-and-clingfilmed-to-a-lamppost-4966031/

A mob dished out some very sweaty justice to an alleged thief who was spotted attempting to rob a pensioner with a knife – he was stripped naked, then wrapped head to foot in clingfilm and tied to a lamppost.

People took photographs as 32-year-old Valentino Abeyta Barrera sweltered in Chilean capital Santiago’s 27-degree heat, with his underpants around his ankles.

He was left for 20 minutes before police arrived – and the alleged thief refused to explain why he was there, begging the police to free him.

The photographs stirred up discussion online about vigilante justice – and Barrera was freed, as his alleged victim did not make a complaint to police.

I suspect this sort of thing will be on the rise in our new global village. It's a worry really.
