Argentina is a failed State - Mob Justice Prevails

07 April 2014, 07:22

For the last few months I have been telling Elena that Argentina has become a failed state. The currency is no good. Electric power is not available half the time. Street crime has gone out of control. Public servants strike all the time. I made some comparisons to Zimbabwe. Now this shocking video surfaces. In Argentine cities young men on motor bikes often ride through the streets knocking people down. Women's purses are stolen. Men's briefcases are taken. Compared to home invasions and kidnappings that are also epidemic there, this is petty crime. However one day in Buenos Aires some people on the street had enough of this criminal epidemic. A crowd captured one of the motor bike bandits. He was kicked to death. Another bandit was captured and a belt put around his neck to strangle him. The police stopped this execution.

I was born and raised in the American south. All of us were ashamed of the dark past decades and centuries before when crowds of people would decide to take justice into their own hands. Some accused criminal would be hauled to a make shift gallows and hung .In many case the person suffering "street justice" was an African American.

Argentina is a beautiful country. Its European population is cultured, well educated, and intelligent. It seems that all order and civilization has collapsed. Mob justice is the order of business. I can only think of that sad song: "Don't Cry For Me Argentina."
