Jungle Justice, the Most Salient Sign of a Dysfunctional System
Jungle Justice. This isn’t a word per say and doesn’t have a definite definition but its a form of punishment. JUNGLE JUSTICE IS NO JUSTICE. Justice can be defined as “Fairness in the way people are treated”. It seems to be where people, precisely an irate mob, take the law into their own hands and punish or beat someone for a crime they committed.
Jungle Justice 1:
Girl Stripped Naked For Cutting Her Friend’s Face With Razor Blade
Only in Nigeria can this happen…It happened in Benue State, Nigeria.We were told that the two girls fought over a sugar daddy. But a better source has said, it is not true, that the girls fought because one of them called the other her friend`s mother a prostitute. In order to retaliate, she cut her friend’s face deeply with a razor blade. It was learnt that people who were passing by, who saw how deep the cut was, ordered the other girl to remove her clothes to serve as punishment for her. But when she refused, the men forcefully removed her clothes and stripped her naked.
It’s so disgusting and this is unbelievable. What she has done is wrong, she shouldn’t have used a razor blade on her friend. But men, is this the latest now? Whenever a girl steals, fights or misbehaves, instead of you to report her to the right authorities, you take the laws into your hands. You strip her naked just because you want to see her nakedness.

Villagers Lynch Rapist & Bury Him Beside His Victim
Villagers in Bolivia’s southern highlands buried a man alive in the grave of the woman he is suspected of having raped and murdered, an official said Thursday.
Police had identified 17-year-old Santos Ramos as the possible culprit in the attack on 35-year-old Leandra Arias Janco Sunday in a Quechua community near the municipality of Colquechaca, said Jose Luis Barrios, the chief prosecutor in Potosi province where the community is located.
Enraged, more than 200 community members seized Ramos and buried him alive alongside his alleged victim Wednesday night, according to Barrios. He said residents on Thursday blocked the road to the community, preventing police and prosecutors from reaching it.
A local reporter for an indigenous radio station, who would only speak on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals, told The AP that Ramos was tied up at the woman’s funeral. Mourners threw him into the open grave, placed the woman’s coffin in it and filled the grave with earth.
Colquechaca is a town of 5,000 inhabitants located 207 miles (333 kilometers) southeast of Bolivia’s capital, La Paz.
Also in Potosi, residents of the Quechua indigenous community of Tres Cruces on Wednesday stoned to death a suspected thief and burned his accomplice alive, Barrios said. The official said the two had earlier robbed a car and killed its driver.
Lynchings sometimes occur in rural and poor parts of Bolivia where police and other authorities are scarce.

Mob Burns Innocent Man To Death Over N10 In Abuja
Daily Trust gathered that Chukwudi Orji, a friend of the deceased, Ikechukwu Anigbo, a barber had visited his barbing salon on Saturday. However, about 30 minutes after he left, Orji was said to have received news of violence involving some motorcyclists and at about 11p.m, he learnt that his friend, Anigbo was the victim of the violence.
Orji said “I saw the fire, but I did not know that someone was inside. There was smoke everywhere; there was no way you would have known that there was someone in the fire, except you were there or somebody told you about it.”
It was gathered that a disagreement had ensued between the deceased who hails from Aku in Enugu State and a motorcyclist over N10 “change,” he was supposed to have collected after paying his fare.
It was learnt that while the quarrel ensued the motorcyclist attracted his colleagues to the scene by shouting “thief”.
“The mob that gathered following the alarm collected tyres from a vulcanising workshop near the scene and set the deceased on fire,” the taskforce chairman of Abuja Spare Parts Dealers Association, Apo, Mr. Ezema Virginus Chukwudike, confirmed.
“When news of the incident spread, people became angry. They wondered why the motorcyclists would burn an innocent man. Even the man who volunteered to carry the corpse after he had been killed, was chased away.
“This is not the first time that motorcyclists are killing someone over a paltry sum of money.
“A similar thing happened in Kabusa, when a boy was stabbed because of change. Another man was killed on Wumba road. The same change issue led to the death of a man in Damagaza. In his case, after he was killed, they kept him near a river until the next day,” Chukwudike was quoted to have said.
“The last time such an incident occurred in the area, the traders protested and it took the intervention of policemen to bring the situation under control,” he added.
According to him, the matter was reported at the Apo Police Station.
Speaking on the incident, when contacted, the spokesperson of the FCT police command, ASP Anjuguri Manzah said,
“There was a disagreement last night between two opposing groups and we are in the know.”
Manzah said there are several versions of the incident. While some insist that the late Anigbo did not commit any crime, some alleged that he attempted to snatch the motorcycle but was overpowered by the motorcyclists.

After finding the 40-year-old pinning the girl against a wall, a lynch mob dragged him to a butchers shop where they beat him with sticks for an hour before castrating him.
They then dumped the severed remains in the middle of a road and lefta bloodied Kumar nearby.
Aamir Dhawan, 30, said no one ‘went to help’ Kumar because they knew he had been punished for a ‘sex crime’.
The spokesman said: ‘As deplorable as these crimes are, law and order has to be maintained, and not lynch justice.
‘We ask those men who carried out this attack to hand themselves in before we find them.’
Kumar was eventually taken to hospital where doctors described his condition as critical.
The girl involved was treated for shock, and given counselling.
The castration follows a string of violent sex crimes in India that have prompted vigilante justice.
In July, one man was killed and two others were badly hurt after being accused of raping and hanging a seven-year-old girl.

Nigerian Mob Forces Gay ‘Couple’ To Have Sex On Video
The vigilantes are heard jeering in a video recording of the event as a large crowd of onlookers gathered to watch the men’s humiliation.
According to reports, a crowd gathered, forced them to leave the house and made them ‘re-enact’ the ‘homosexual acts’ they allegedly were carrying out in private.
Scenarios like this have become common ever since the government passed the anti-gay bill, with mobs taking justice into their hands rather than take the alleged criminals to the police.

Shocking Photo Of Angry Mob Stripping Naked & Sexually Manhandling Woman Who Stole A Phone
https://www.youtube.com Published on Oct 19, 2012
SunNewsOnline reports: The mob descended on the lady, stripped her naked and beat her to a pulp. This happened amidst cheers and jeers from onlookers who were busy videoing the detestable act. Despite efforts to ward off the several blows rained on her, she had objects inserted into her private part by the mob. At a point, a man successfully inserted a torchlight into her private part, while others held her legs apart to make the bestial act easy. All efforts by the helpless lady, who was weeping profusely and pleading, to cover her nakedness with both hands, failed, as the mob tugged at various parts of her body.
Meanwhile, several reactions have trailed the disturbing video, with some describing it as an act that debased humanity. They questioned the absence of security operatives in such an upscale shopping mall and why the internal security did not make an effort to hand over the suspect to the appropriate authority. According to most saddened by the impunity with which the mob carried out their dastardly act, the mob action is gradually becoming an accepted behavior, warning that it should be nipped in the bud before it gets out of hand. They also averred that anybody accused of any crime is considered innocent except proved otherwise by the court. No one, they stressed, has the right to take life or subject another fellow human being to dehumanizing treatment. Unanimously, they agreed that security operatives should live up to their responsibility of securing the lives and property of citizens.

Gruesome murder of 4 Nigerian students, savagely beaten, tortured, and burned alive by mob (WARNING: Graphic images)
Four students from the University of Port Harcourt, in southern Nigeria, were burned alive by locals who accused them of being thieves. A horrific video of the scene has since surfaced online, angering their classmates, some of whom reportedly decided to get revenge by setting fire to the part of town where the young men were killed.
Observers.france24 According to the Nigerian press, the four killed students were second-year undergraduates whom local residents in the Aluu neighbourhood of Port Harcourt accused of stealing a laptop computer and a Blackberry phone. A friend of the victims, meanwhile, told the BBC that they had gone to Aluu to try to collect money they were owed, and were mistaken for thieves.
On Sunday, police arrested 13 people in connection with the case. However, this was not enough to calm Port Harcourt university students, who held a protest on Tuesday, blocking major roads on the edges of the university. Some reportedly turned to violence and set shops, houses and cars on fire in Aluu, which is adjacent to the campus, prompting many residents to flee. On Tuesday, the university closed its doors indefinitely. According to several of our sources, who preferred to stay anonymous out of fear for their safety, there have long been class tensions between the residents of Aluu and the university’s students, who come from around the country and are generally wealthier.
This violence follows the killing of at least two dozen students at another Nigerian university, this time in the north of the country, earlier this month.

Mexican robbery gang lynched by angry mob
A Mexican mob took the law into their hands and administered jungle justice to thieves who have been raiding their homes.

“We warned them of what would happen if they returned to rob from us,” local neighbors, who said they were tired of thieves after a recent string of robberies, told local police.
Local cops tried to stop the brutal beatings but were pushed back by the crowd. State police had to intervene to bring the situation under control. One of the four suspects died of his injuries.

Vigilante Lynchings Go Viral in Peru
“We have lost faith in the police,” explained Cecilia García Rodríguez, the creator Catch Your Thief (Chapa tu choro), a nationwide campaign to promote vigilante justice in Peru.
She made the decision following an episode in early August when she caught a thief, only to have police officers release him 30 minutes later.
As the campaign went viral, social media users began posting pictures and footage showing alleged criminals receiving punishments ranging from brutal beatings to forced military exercises.
The luckiest ones are those who just get handed over to the police.
Thousands of Peruvians have adopted García’s cause as their own in a country where one third of the population has fallen victim to a crime, according to the2014 Americas Barometer authored by the Latin American Public Opinion Project (LAPOP).
Of all the Americas, Peruvians are the least confident in their judiciary. A mere 34 percent told LAPOP that they trusted the enforcement of the law. Only Dominicans (42.8 percent) and Paraguayans (42.3 percent) approve of vigilante justice more than Peruvians (40.6 percent).

Vigilante Justice- Does It Work? It Did This Time!
Does vigilante justice work? It seemed to this time. A 32 year old man, Valentino Barerra, decided he’d hold a pensioner at knife point and rob him of his wallet. Well, there were others around witnessing who decided otherwise. They came to the elderly man’s rescue and they stripped the would-be thug robber of his clothes, tied him to a street post, and then wrapped him in cling wrap.
The elderly man chose not to have charges pressed, feeling that Barerra had learned his lesson, so in this case, yes, vigilante justice did indeed work.
