    Mob justice isn't the way to handle these situations. However, I'm willing to look the other way in this instance.

    Same here. If they knew it was him who did it and I was there I might have helped them.

    Hard call, isn't it? But in the victim's grave - at her funeral? I dunno. Maybe someplace shallow...

    They buried a 17 year old boy alive, without a shred of evidence afaik that he was guilty. Hard call? Only if you approve of murder.

    What would make them think the victim would want her murderer/rapist buried with her?

    No they don't. On the contrary, their murder rate is nearly double that of the US...

    I was responding to the post above mine, in which it was a supposition that he -was- actually guilty.

    Context is awesome.

    It would still be murder even if he was guilty.

    I thought at first the thread was about the mob here, as in Tony Soprano style. This mob better make sure they aren't false accusations before going berserk at a funeral. There's no word on whether he survived or not, and no mention of evidence or why they thought he did it.

    according to http://www.newsdaily.com/article/f6e...hland-lynching he died (since it's a murder case not attempted murder)

    LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — Two members of an indigenous Quechua community in Bolivia's highlands will be tried for murder for allegedly leading a mob that buried alive a teenager suspected of raping and killing a woman, a prosecutor said Friday.

    http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/w...spect.21295334
    Jose Luis Barrios, the chief prosecutor in Potosi province where the lynching took place, said police had identified the dead youth, 17-year-old Santos Ramos, as a suspect for the attack on a woman aged 35 in a Quechua community near the district of Colquechaca.
    Wondering how sure the police were if he was not in custody
