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.

From the merchant’s perspective, I would be pissed-off too…

I do not know or recall the model phone stolen but for the sake of discussion say it was $25 retail.

If the merchant paid $20 for it he then has to sell 4 more phones just to recoup the loss of the stolen one. Has to sell 5 phones before he makes any money on the phone sales.

I don't think there is any doubt that the girl was wrong for stealing and that she deserved some punishment / re-education but going about that through mob justice can lead down a dangerous path of tit for tat beatings. There would be some big brothers, cousins, uncles or fathers that if they saw this happening to a member of their family that would issue beatings of their own to the grown ups in this video.

Well I did read it carefully and to the best of my knowledge Cambodia is part of the world. Your notion of tough justice is commonly referred to as
extrajudicial punishment which opens many doors, all of which you personally would be a fool to enter as a suspect.
You are still not getting the point.

Several members here think that the girl was harshly treated but looking at the video several times, all that happened was that she had a few slaps, a half hearted whack with a boom handle and an attempted kick. No one beat her up, she was not violently asulted or tortured and has no cuts or bruises showing.

She had her head partially shaved. Well good for the shop keepers. It's about time some tough love was shown rather than an "it's not her fault" or "she should be given counseling". My bet is that she won't be stealing again in a hurry.

My belief is that the fault lays with the luvvie liberal PC society that seems to punish the innocent and protect the guilty.

Yes because the liberals really love to punish the innocent. Thieving and other crimes were non existent before those crazy liberals took over :dm:
