Why is it wrong to lynch people?
I slowly see my worst nightmares slowly come true. In some note published on this same site about a year ago I had already talked about the subject that I am going to talk about now. At that moment, I remember perfectly, I saw the phenomenon as beginning to appear, but, with some relief, I still felt it quite distant. I don’t see it that way anymore. It’s getting closer and closer.
What do I mean? To the scene worthy of 1984 or Black Mirror that was lived last week in José C. Paz. Suddenly, in the quiet of the afternoon, a woman began to scream that a guy wanted to steal his daughter . To this person’s unbridled cries (I can’t imagine a more borderline situation than seeing how your baby is being robbed) joined another woman, asking neighbors to stop him until the police arrive. As expected, the neighbors stopped him.
In the middle of the tumult, one hit the kidnapper a pineapple. As usually happens, another pineapple was added to the first pineapple and in record time there were already enough neighbors hitting it on the floor. The first woman to join the call for help redoubled the bet and shouted, desperately, “do the crap until the police arrive.” The neighbors listened to him. The kidnapper ended up in the hospital.
Now, the problem. It’s not right to lynch people. I repeat in case: It’s not right to lynch people . Because that is not how justice is done and because if we start killing each other, there will be no rule of law or individual guarantees or anything. But, moreover, this case proves more than ever the premise that it is not right to lynch people. Why do I say that? Because the lynching was the baby’s father. And the one who had a perimeter restriction for abuse was the mother, the one who accused him of wanting to steal the creature . How did it end? With the hospitalized father, the fugitive mother and the little girl, as always, with the worst consequence of all: a horrible life experience that will never be forgotten. Let’s not do justice in our own hands . For a reason it’s as illegal to lynch a criminal as an innocent man. Moreover, as we became clear, we can be wrong .
Hipólito Azema nació en Buenos Aires, en los comienzos de la década del 80. No se sabe desde cuándo, porque esas cosas son difíciles de determinar, le gusta contar historias, pero más le gusta que se las cuenten: quizás por eso transitó los inefables pasillos de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Una vez escuchó que donde existe una necesidad nace un derecho y se lo creyó.
