    Haha. No wonder.
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    This is tragic, and so is your usual flippant response.

    A mob is exactly that...a mob. Humans without social responsibility. After all, we hold the beast in check in the name of society. Once society becomes the beast, all bets are off.

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    My dad nearly had that happen to him.

    Back when Zimbabwe was still Rhodesia, he was an insurance agent. He used to drive all around the place checking on stores for insurance claims or policies. One evening, I am not sure he saw the actual accident or just saw the kid on the side of the road, anyway, he looked around and couldn't see anyone, so he picked him up and took him to the hospital. Of course, this being 1970's in Rhodesia, he had to take him to the black hospital. He walked in and told them to look after the kid. They took him into the surgery where they'd just finished working on someone, and put the kid down on the table. Without cleaning it. Nice blood soaked table.

    So my dad, who seems to be a bit like me objects a bit and then staggers to the door and passes out in the hall. He comes to after a while with people just walking around him, finds out the kid has had his leg or arm set, picks him up and takes him back to the car and back to where the accident was.

    There is now a huge crowd of rather angry people who are looking for the kid. He gets out with the kid (covered in blood and now with a cast on his arm or leg). They go nuts as he is trying to explain that it wasn't him who hit him. Luckily a madala hobbles up with his walking stick, and verified the story - he had been up on the hill under a tree, and had seen the accident, and then dad drive up and take the kid off, and had started walking down to let them know.

    Yes, well, forget the mob mentality, and explain the sick mentality of this group: http://www.knbc.com/news/13544399/detail.html

    I swear, I'm never reading the news again this made me so sick to my stomach. I hope that little 11-year-old recovers from the emotional scars he is bound to have for life.

    Not that your article is purposely biased being set in Rhodesia, but this type of thing (mob attacks, vigilante justice) is an unfortunate fact of human history, no matter the location.

    Especially when women and children are involved. People* feel the instinctive need to protect the herd, and will kill with impunity.

    Fact.





    *Actually all mammals behave this way.
