LA PAZ – Three alleged cattle thieves were lynched by villagers in the Bolivian province of La Paz, local media reported Monday. The incident took place on Friday in the town of Topoco after six men were surprised by local residents as they were stealing cattle. After a pursuit, three of the men were apprehended and lynched by their captors, Radio Erbol reported. Once they were dead, the three men’s bodies were burned, according to the radio report, which added that Bolivia’s Special Crime Fighting Force (FELCC) had been informed of the incident. Lynchings of alleged criminals occur relatively frequently in Bolivia and,

"indigenous justice". Remember, all cultures are equally valid, right?
Seriously, the designation of "felony", and cattle rustling certainly qualifies, historically implied "crime punished by death". From the article, there is no doubt of guilt, and the honest citizens were spared the cost of bringing in a bribe-able judge with delusions of grandeur. We may yet see something of the sort in this country, and if "frontier justice" takes in a couple of these loony judges, so be it.

The article says that they include a cartoon so that every story has a happy ending. Since there wasn´t a cartoon with that story the writer seems to agree that this story already has a happy ending.....

I agree but unfortunately three of the bad guys got away. The local residents don´t seem to be the type to give up so I expect they will be apprehended sooner rather than later.

Vigilante justice is common here in the Andes. I´ve seen thieves being roughed up by shopkeepers and passers-by. I don´t know whether it´s because the police are undermanned or corrupt, but it´s the way a lot of justice (or "justice") is dispensed here. It may be crude, but at least the locals won´t just stand there filming crimes with their smart-phone cameras and refuse to help.

In poor countries, theft can be a threat to one´s life.

In His Mug Shot, Rick Perry
Comes Out Smelling Like A
Texas Yellow Rose
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 8/21/2014 2:04:32 PM     Post Reply
Leadership: Texas Gov. Rick Perry smiled confidently for his mug shot, as if to signal he would prevail over politicized big government. In fact, that may resonate as a campaign theme for voters weary of the same abuses. Until now, the prevailing "narrative" was that a governor under indictment on two counts of "abuses of power" would be political toast. Because even if the charges were baseless, as these are, the mug shot and the screeching headlines would bring certain opprobrium. It certainly happened that way for now-exonerated House leader Tom DeLay, whose career was ruined by the same tactics

Texas Governor Rick Perry was booked today on charges of abuse of power, but before he went in to pose for the greatest mugshot in the history of mugshots, he took the time to speak at a pickup rally organized in support of the Governor and his fight against Texas democrats. The Washington Free Beacon has the video: I’m here today because I did the right thing. I’m going to enter this courthouse with my head held high, and not only were the actions that I took not only lawful and legal, but right. And if I had to do so,

CNN host and Washington Post columnist Fareed Zakaria has responded to renewed accusations of plagiarism in his articles that appeared in Time magazine and elsewhere. While two anonymous reporters claim Zakaria lifted numerous passages from Wikipedia, the writer told Politico in an email that he merely referenced facts that could be found in “hundreds” of other articles. “Two anonymous bloggers today have alleged that there are 11 cases in my writing where I have cited a statistic that also appeared somewhere else,” Zakaria wrote. “These are all facts, not someone else’s writing or opinions or expressions.” Referring to one example the bloggers

Politics: Now that the indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry is coming up as the mother of all nothingburgers, and even Democrats are steering clear, it´s time to look at those behind this scam: George Soros-funded front groups. Friday´s news erupted with a Texas-sized gusher of political mud — Gov. Perry indicted on two felony counts of corruption and abuse of office! And it was all over his decision to defund a "public integrity office" run by a convicted drunk whose failure to resign left an office unable to straighten itself out. With the news breaking late at week´s end, the governor´s

One in 10 Venezuelan claims to be seeking information or making arrangements for leaving the country, according to data disclosed by the latest Omnibus survey conducted by research firm Datanálisis. The figure exceeds the numbers pertaining to the highest peaks of emigration from Venezuela in the last decade: after the coup of 2002 and after the presidential recall referendum in 2004. Luis Vicente León, the president of Datanálisis, explains that the survey consists of three basic questions about emigration. First, interviewees are asked if they have a family member who has left the country. Twenty-seven percent of respondents replied affirmatively. This means that

A bin bag of cats´ heads has been found on a street in "an extreme example of animal cruelty". A council cleaner in Manchester was called to the "sickening" incident in an alley just off Wilmslow Road, a spokesman for Manchester city council said. He added that the area was known as "Curry Mile" as there are lots of Indian restaurants, but said the council is not connecting the incident with any local business. The spokesman said the incident could have been "maliciously" or "racially motivated". There are believed to have been four or five heads in the bin bag. On its Facebook page,

LONDON — Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks who was given asylum in the Ecuadorean Embassy here two years ago, said on Monday that he “will be leaving the embassy soon,” but he provided no specifics. In a long and wandering news conference at which he was accompanied by the Ecuadorean foreign minister, Ricardo Patiño, Mr. Assange summarized his case, arguing that he had helped bring about needed change in the British extradition system and saying that his health was suffering after two years at the embassy. Mr. Assange faces extradition to Sweden, which is investigating allegations of sexual misconduct, and

More than 100 people gathered in downtown Davenport on Sunday for an interfaith rally to support children fleeing Central America to enter the United States. Davenport Mayor Bill Gluba urged the crowd at the “Love Without Borders” event to “work for social responsibility.” He and local social service leaders helped launch the initiative in July when he suggested that the Quad-Cities host some of the immigrant children, mostly from Central America, who are crossing the border from Mexico into the United States to escape violence and poverty. Several people who attended the hour-long rally carried signs, including “No human is illegal” and

President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that ´when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.´ Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha´s Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

When it comes to combatting ISIS, the Obama administration has precious few successes to talk about. So today it touted a failure: U.S. Special Operations forces staged an unsuccessful operation this summer to rescue photojournalist James Foley and other Americans being held in Syria by Islamic State militants, according to senior Obama administration officials. The attempt, involving several dozen U.S. commandos, one of whom was injured in a fierce firefight with the militants, was the first known U.S. ground operation in Syria since the country’s descent into civil war. It came after at least six European hostages freed by the

Ryan, who had reportedly been working behind the scenes with Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) to get House Republicans to support a broader immigration bill, said that he was "having problems" convincing conservatives to support immigration reform, which he said was "very important." In a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg News, Ryan said he supported a "path to legalization" for all of the country´s illegal immigrants.

It turns out that there are some good reasons why the former Governor and GOP Presidential nominee is allowing his name to be circulated as a potential candidate in 2016. Some of those good reasons can be found in a new poll by Zogby Analytics showing him outpolling his nearest rivals for the nomination by about two to one. The poll of 315 likely Republican primary voters was conducted online on August 13-15 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-5.6 percentage points.

Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that his Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation into the brutal execution by Islamic State militants of American journalist James Foley, in the latest move by the administration to use the criminal justice system to pursue terrorists. The announcement comes as the administration steps up its airstrike campaign against the same militant organization -- and mulls additional American boots on the ground in Iraq. Holder, during remarks in Washington, confirmed the "open criminal investigation" into Foley´s beheading, which was recorded and posted online this week.

Global warming has been temporarily ´paused´ according to a group of scientists, who attribute this interlude to climate fluctuations and a more restrained sun. Researchers at ETH Zurich have explained the two reasons behind the warming hiatus in their study published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Geoscience. The first is that global temperatures, which rose significantly in the 1990s, have only risen very slightly since 1998 - which has been used by sceptics to question climate change and the models used to measure it. However, climate fluctuations such as El Niño and its counter-phenomenon La Niña have

WITH EACH day, the barbarism of the Islamist extremists terrorizing Syria and Iraq becomes more evident — as does the need for the United States and its allies to act more vigorously to block their rise. On Tuesday the group that calls itself the Islamic State released a video of the beheading of American journalist James Foley . Mr. Foley, as President Obama said Wednesday, “reported from difficult and dangerous places. .?.?. [He] courageously told the stories of his fellow human beings.” One reason there has been so little outcry as more than 150,000 Syrians have been killed and millions
