DAILYKENN.com -- What's wrong with lynch mobs? They bypass the rule of law and deny fair trials.
The abstract missing by participants in lynch mobs is simple: When we protect the right of defendants in the most vile of crimes, we are protecting everyone's right to a fair trial, including our own.
That concept seemed missing in South Africa where a white attorney was attacked by an angry black mob. At issue were two defendants, accused of kidnapping a three-year-old girl who has never been found and is presumed dead.
The mob didn't attack the accused who were securely locked away in jail. Rather, they attacked their attorney.
Members of lynch mobs fail to consider that they may be falsely accused of a heinous future crime. They will need a competent attorney.
