Justice, Mexican-style (

"A crowd of people angry about recent kidnappings at a local school cornered federal agents taking photos of students leaving the building and burned the officers alive Tuesday on Mexico City’s southern edge, the latest example of mob justice in a country beset by corrupt police and high crimes rates

The killings, filmed and broadcast on local television stations, were carried out by a crowd of people who cheered, chanted and shouted obscenities as they kicked and beat the plainclothes agents. The mob then doused two officers with gasoline and set them ablaze."

At least sa Pinas, ginugulpi lang ang mga holdaper. Mahal kasi ang gasolina.

Here’s another mob, Japan-style (

"Operations at Tokyo’s international airport almost came to a halt Thursday as thousands of Japanese fans, mostly women, came to greet South Korean TV star Bae Yong-joon. Nearly 7,000 fans showed up at Narita International Airport before the arrival of the popular soap opera actor. Bae’s arrival at 1:34 p.m. was preceded with an announcement by airport officials.

The fans, some with children, became frantic and Bae had to escape the mobbed airport guarded by 150 bodyguards. About 350 police and an additional 70 riot police were also deployed at the airport."
