As cellphone cameras become cheaper and more ubiquitous I think we’re going to be able to get a better sense of the brutality all around the world. In this horrific video, a young girl is beaten down by a mob until they douse her with gasoline and set her on fire.
A violent mob took justice into their own hands by torturing and setting fire to a 16-year-old girl allegedly tied the robbery and murder of a taxi driver.
A gruesome video (below), which was widely shared in Guatemala before being taken down by YouTube, shows a large violent mob from the town of Rio Bravo beating a bloodied teen who tried to unsuccessfully run away.
According to Telecinco.es, the girl appears to have been part of a gang and along with two other men who were accused of shooting a taxi driver. The two men were able to run away through back alleys but left the girl behind to the will of the mob.
In the video you can clearly hear them yelling “fuego,” or fire in Spanish, and earlier a man calls for gasoline.
