Mob burns Venezuelan man alive over $5 as justice fails

Ahh, socialism in action. I just wish the good folks of Venezuela would take their anger out of their socialist government instead of some guy stealing to eat.

"Tic, Tic, Tic, Tic"

Hear that? That Latin America about to implode from socialism.

Mob burns Venezuelan man alive over $5 as justice fails
May. 19, 2016 2:06 PM EDT

ARACAS, Venezuela (AP) The mob didn't know at first what Roberto Bernal had done, but he was running and that was enough.

Dozens of men loitering on the sidewalk next to a supermarket kicked and punched the 42-year-old until he was bloodied and semi-conscious. After all, they had been robbed of cell phones, wallets and motorcycles over the years, and thought Bernal had a criminal's face.

Then a stooped, white-haired man trailing behind told them he'd been mugged.

The mob went through Bernal's pockets and handed a wad of bills to the old man: The equivalent of $5. They doused Bernal's head and chest in gasoline and flicked a lighter. And they stood back as he burned alive.

"... men loitering on the street..."

Welcome to socialism's definition of full employment.

this is a common practice in 3rd world countries. The mob mentality + emotion over rationale.

That's why if you accidentally hit/hurt/other offences in public place in 3rd world places, forget US traffic laws and RUN! Had he not done that, Raymond Davis would have been lynched
