being in Philly every other day almost, i can say what the neighbors did was justified. crime in Philly is out of control, and criminals operate without fear of police and intimidate neighborhoods every second. if these thugs become scared and unwanted in neighborhoods, then that's a good thing. im kind of over seeing multiple shootings on the six o clock news. people are tired of living like that, and saw a way to end this situation.
if you rape anybody, or cause unjust bodily harm to anyone, IMO you waived your rights to not get beat the fuck up.
