Residents of Reyes in Northern Bolivia stormed a police station recently and wrenched the jail bars open before dragging out a suspected rapist and murderer. The man who was accused of raping and murdering a 4-year-old-girl was then beaten like a dog and dragged along the streets as the outnumbered police watched helplessly.

Incidents of mob justices are common in our country especially when it comes to thieves. But they are not unique to our country.
The residents of Reyes angry at this act he was accused of refused to wait for his trail so after the beating, they then proceeded to hang him in broad daylight in a video that has gone viral online.
Nobody has been arrested for the mob lynching but the bodies of the victim and the suspect have been moved to Palos Blancos a locality in the La Paz Department in Bolivia.
This lynching has been met with mixed reactions on social media with some applauding this act while others expressed their discomfort at the thought that an innocent man had been killed because the man was a suspect in a crime and had not be found guilty by a court of law.
