In Novo Aripuanã, a municipality located about 277 km from Manaus in the state of Amazonas, Brazil, a woman burned three children by deliberately setting fire to a house with them inside. A two year old was burned to death. Two other children are fighting for their lives with severe burns.
30 year old Lucinete da Costa Gama was arrested and taken to a local police station, but the populace broke into the station and removed the woman to take justice into their own hands.
Video shows the mob beating, stoning and dragging Lucinete by the hair to throw her into a burning car wreck.
Despite the apparent anger of the crowd who threw the woman into the fire, Lucinete da Costa Gama got off easy, as the crowd allowed her to get out of the heat and chill. A man wouldn’t have been that lucky.
