Justifying violence

The Rude Pundit has a few things to say about justifications for violence:

They were so positive that Tony Blakeney had something to do with the disappearance of Patrick McClendon that they cornered Blakeney in his house and beat him to what would become death at the hospital later on. [...]

The mob believed they had the right intelligence. They had pieced it together from the few clues they had and decided to act before someone else was hurt. You can bet, though, that there was a man in the group who perhaps thought that maybe they were wrong, especially since chances are they beat Blakeney for a while to get information, which he could not give since he didn't, you know, have any. And you can also bet that any man who thought they were wrong didn't say a word for fear of being labeled a traitor and just let the beat down continue.

Unfortunately for them, these ten murderers don't have Faux News constantly pushing propoganda and misinformation for them, and consequently, they don't have fifty percent of Americans convinced that Tony Blakeney was involved with al Qaeda responsible for the disappearence.
