did they do the right thing? technically, no... they can't be the judge jury and executioner, but at the same time, i don't feel bad for the guy one bit, and i can't help but feel that this is way more justice than he'd get in jail.



PM me any time, ok? I'm always here to help.

From what I understand, child rapists are very likely to get beaten, raped or killed themselves while in jail by their fellow inmates. When you go to prison, you don't want your fellow prisoners to know that you're there for raping a child. Not defending them, just saying, they do get quite an amount of 'justice' enacted on them.

I can understand the rage of the community, but attacking and lynching is never a good thing. We have a justice system in place for a reason, and civilians have no right to take things into their own hands.

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

Well no, violence is never the answer. The right thing would have been contacting the police so he could be arrested.Although, honestly what those city folks did will look like nothing compared to what other prisoners might do if they find out.

Good job

They did him a favour, make him a little tougher before the people in prison for life get a hold of him.

If only I could have joined in the beating! I think they did the right thing, it might have kept alive longer...cuz once they find out why he's in jail...it wont be pretty!

No, he wasn't arrested yet. He wasn't convicted yet. They haven't proved that he raped her. So no, I don't believe they were right at all.

Plus, if he were convicted and sent to prison, he'd get beaten too.
