As I understand the story, the man was caught, “red-handed” in the act, and a group of local fathers forcibly “restrained” him to an old “junker” car which then was set on fire. The police, somehow made aware of the circumstances, found no leads. The rapes ceased.
Now some would say that this is an example of anarchy, others, of good local government. However you define your terms, it captures the universal human tendency to government: (more…)
