Egyptian Vigilantes Crack Down on Abuse of Women
The young activists lingered on the streets around Tahrir Square, scrutinizing the crowds of holiday revelers. Suddenly, they charged, pushing people aside and chasing down a young man. As the captive thrashed to get away, the activists pounded his shoulders, flipped him around and spray-painted a message on his back: “I’m a harasser.”
Mixed feelings on this. I normally do not support vigilante justice. But in this case, where the police are not doing their job, this might be justified.
