  1. He was wrong but at the same time they could have handed him over to the authorities. They should not take the law in their own hands because they are affiliated with a political party. That’s my point either you like it or you don’t like it. If he had shot and killed someone then yes I could understand but omg he has snatched a bag just hand him over to the police . Now they have put themselves in trouble too. So ignorant .

  2. Is this how people take the law into their own hands? This is nothing but murder. Wasn’t it enough to hold him and call the police? This is like using the Sharia Law.
