If there were no consequences, you wouldn't rob a bank?

Or a store?

Or a random person?

Everyone's line is different and even with laws like 10-20-life there's no shortage of people willing to cross it. So you're delusional if you think minus the prison sentence that there wouldn't be many more examples of this.

I don't really want a mob lynching me for some anti-social behavior there wouldn't be a law about.

And it wouldn't happen cause if mob outrage were that on point they would already be in effect, law or no law

Yet the only time people seem to do that is when they get whipped up into a tribal frenzy and Lynch someone innocent.

The people of Sudan must be the strongest most resilient people on the planet. Machine gun deaths do not weaken their resolve. They never give up.

good point actually

The times people have been lynched were largely during times the law wasn't really enforced

I guess my point is more that this doesn't actually work as a form of justice since the mob is just as likely to lynch the innocent as they are the guilty.

It seems like it would be an even harsher and more unjust form of justice than our current system, flawed as it is.

And I think most murderers would get off scott free
Especially if they organize into gangs or cartels that enforce their own sort of rules on the populace, which is what tends to happen in States where the institutions are weak and incapable or unwilling to uphold basic law and order.
