That's one hell of a beating! Can't imagine that it's just for a couple of guys who stole a cellphone, or a purse. Unless the guy from whom it was stolen was a psycho!
I checked the Chinese website it was originally broadcast on: potato web. No mention there of the reason for the beating.
Judging from the comments there, it's about 75%:thumb: 25%:nono:
So not much mercy from the Chinese public for thieves!
My God, that's very brutal. They were throwing bricks at them? They killed one dude by beating the brick to the head. Why do that for stealing some cell phone or whatever. It's sick to watch the bystanders do nothing. Why didn't they just deal this whole thing with the authorities?
