Guatemalan girl beaten and burned alive by mob
How was one mob able to exact vigilante justice on a 16 year old Guatemalan girl?

A 16 year old Guatemalan girl has been filmed being beaten and burned alive by a mob of 25 after allegedly being involved in the murder of a 68 year old taxi driver.

The graphic video, said to run four minutes and 38 seconds shows the teen with blood streaming down her face being punched and kicked before being set on fire.

According to a report via the UK’s dailymail, the unnamed girl was surrounded in the village of Rio Bravo, 77 miles west of capital Guatemala City, after she was allegedly part of a gang that murdered a motorcycle taxi driver. 

Witnesses told that the girl and two other men allegedly shot Carlos Enrique González Noriega, 68, before robbing him and running away.

As the three fled the scene, running down a series of alleys, the girl at one point took a wrong turn and soon found herself surrounded by a mob who sought justice for the taxi driver’s death.

Accosted by the mob, the video pans on the girl as she begins to stumble dazed amongst the crowd, with blood beginning to now stream down her face.

After viciously beaten, the helpless woman is then filmed being doused in a flammable liquid before going up in flames, with the video recording the horrific sounds of the woman screaming and writhing in pain as the mob watches on.

As she lies on the ground, a man runs over with a can of petrol and pours it over her, sending her up in flames once again as she screams.

The camera continues to roll as the fire continues to ravage her body and the girl finally dies. 

Notes the UK’s independent: Violent lynchings, which often involve the victims being burned alive, are a fact of life in Guatemala – in March, two men were lynched in the village of Saquiyá, around 100 miles away from Rio Bravo, after they were accused of stealing a car.

The mob of around 150 people burned one of the men alive, and hung the other from a tree.

Adding: Huge numbers of street gangs and corrupt or incompetent police have ensured that the country has the sixth highest murder rate in the world – and less than four per cent of murders end in a conviction.

Since the incident, a police spokesman insisted that officers had tried to intervene but were blocked by the bystanders.

The girl has not been identified, according to news website Tiempo. because the National Civil Police are worried it will spark further tensions in the area. 

They are now investigating the attack.

    It has not been established whether or not she did the murder or whether she was only *with* the two men, one of which may (and likely was) the trigger puller. It is also not known whether or not she was willingly complicit in the murder, it may have been unknown to her what was about to happen or she may have played her part under duress (threat of death, or the death of loved ones). This happened in Guatemala where so-called street “justice” is common; we have due process for a reason, it isn’t just a pointless waste of time for the fun of it… In the same situation you would have been cheering in that crowd, and for all you know you’d be cheering the horrific murder of a young woman by an angry mob that just wanted to take out their frustration on somebody. Congratulations, if the rule of law ever fails you’re one among the multitude of dangerously stupid people that would make your country a terrifying place to live!

    Who cares? Whoever supports a murder needs to go down, right along with the killer.

    And the moral of the story is: Don’t fuck with other people. You never know when karma will eat you.

    Cowards. Your own wrath will one day turn its teeth on you.
    And even if she was with a group of criminals. Was she the one that pulled the trigger?
