Woman Thief has Head Shaved by Angry Market Sellers

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

You can not excuse the thief but the punishment is so cruel. It make me think about videos of French women shaved after the end of the war because they had relations with the germans.
Relatively speaking, it wasn't that harsh a treatment. As someone else said, she wasn't beaten or imprisoned. In terms of community justice, it was rather take. It's interesting that the police have cracked down on citizens taking justice into their own hands. How often does that happen?
now a days the government only respond to social media events tat has garnered enuff viewers, i f u want something to get done, put it on social media n try to get as many views as possible
And this is the case

The men who shaved her head are now being held by the police.

Having your head shaved and let go is a better and less cruel punishment than getting beat up close to death and ending up in prison.
"getting beat up close to death and ending up in prison" is less cruel than getting your head cut and your body burned, surrounded with people videotape the scene and put it on social medias. We can find worst and worst and worst and... situations. But it's not because ir's worst elesewhere that you can not complain.
Ho ho ho. I'm comparing with similar cases of what they usually do with thieves that are caught red-handed here in Cambodia. I'm not saying it's ok. She wasn't beaten, just head shaved and let go. Better for her than ending up in prison, that was my only thought.

Anyone else remember when police here used to regularly shave people's heads as an extrajudicial punishment? Kind of ironic if they are more going around arresting people for it. Not saying they are wrong to do so, just pointing out the obvious.

I'm not sure I want this type of crime punishment stopped. While I don't go in for public stoning, this seemed a fair punishment that might be more effective and less costly than going through the system. I'm open to hearing I'm wrong
I read the story about a guy who moved into a neighborhood. The rumor said that he was a pedophilia and a group of teennager beat him badly just because of the rumor. But the rumor was wrong and the guy is permanent disabled now. Street justice.

You'll note I distinguished between stoning and the shaving of a head of a person caught in the act of stealing. I think it's safe to assume I don't go in for attacks of the type you describe either.

Just because street justice has awful extremes, doesn't mean there couldn't be a place for it as in this incident. Blanket banning or blanket adoption of one method isn't a great way forward. We are dealing with human emotions though, and they certainly get out of hand. I'm not saying street justice untethered is a good thing.

The wife tells me this girl is FOURTEEN.

And they did that to her and also apparently hit her many times.

I wonder what the PUC Hitler has to say?

Ok, the hitting is not good.

Edit, and, yeah, shaving her head is probably a bit brutal at that age too.
