I love these stories. The thief doesn't look destitute, yet still tries to rob this woman knowing full well what the consequences are if he gets caught. He's lucky he encountered such a friendly crowd and isn't taking a dirt nap right about now.

A punch in the face and a few dozen kicks in the head by concerned passersby. I can understand when local people on the scene want to bash a thief so they can apprehend them, but it's weird to see these videos where random people just roll up and throw a few more boots in or a brick or whatever. :?

Never walk around with jewelry in these poor places. I can't think of a better way to ask for trouble

The more gold ,the more your boyfriend/husband loves you and that's important for every woman/girl around you to know
I'm standing up, so I must be straight
What's a poor man do when the blues keep following him around.

To know is one thing. To show off is another.
