Mob Mentality

This is really scary stuff.
A crowd attacked and killed a passenger in a vehicle that had struck and injured a child, police said Wednesday.

Police believe 2,000 to 3,000 people were in the area for a Juneteenth celebration when the attack occurred Tuesday night. The man who was killed had been trying to stop the group from attacking the vehicle's driver when the crowd turned on him, authorities said.

The Austin Police Department identified the victim as David Rivas Morales, 40. The child was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Jesus Christ.

This guy wasn't even the one driving and these people shanked him.

Did the driver hit the kid on purpose? Even then is that justification for this?

I'm curious to see more details. But, man, this is scary.
