Sometimes mob justice still happens and CNN has a report on an Indian woman who was bound to a tree and beaten by villagers who accused her of being a witch.
The network has some pretty dramatic -- and it should be pointed out, rather graphic -- footage shot by a journalist who later reported the incident to police. The woman was still tied to a tree with authorities arrived, the network reported.
"I was appalled at what I saw because people should be more socially responsible than to do this," police official Nishant Tiwari said.
A man reportedly did most of the beating and said he was justified because he had paid the woman to use magic and prayer to improve his wife's health. But his wife's health declined and he accused the woman of using "black magic." He could face seven years in jail, if convicted.
