A little something for your Friday morning.
Released initially onto the notorious LiveLeak, it made it onto YouTube where it has been viewed (so far) some 480,835 times.
Gawker commented: “Unless you’re an exhibitionist, you might consider canceling your annual pick-pocketing expedition to Providencia, Chile this year. As this video shows, local townsfolk have adopted a new vigilantism-based strategy to curb purse-grabbing: strip the would-be thief completely naked and leave him in the street. Naked as a jaybird! Naked as a jailbird!”
Commenter GuitarSly111 on YouTube observed: “If U really understood what the journalist said, U’d understand. The thief hit an OLD WOMAN (some grandma) and stole her purse. Then, he just tried to escape. The old woman asked for help ’cause she didn’t have more money than the one in her purse. So ppl. stopped the thief and did what they did. ‘Cause he HIT an OLD WOMAN n’ in Chile the thief would be free 3 hours later. We have IN-justice, not justice…U forgive a man for hitting a grandma?”
