The dangers of vigilantism.

An angry crowd in Mexico City has burnt alive two police officers and seriously injured another after mistaking them for child kidnappers.

The agents, in plain-clothes, were taking photos of pupils at a primary school on Tuesday, where two children had recently gone missing.

Not defending their actions, but you have to realize that the police in Mexico tend to be corrupt and aren't doing a great of a job policing the country. Who will protect the people and administer justice when the police and the law aren't willing to do their jobs?

In this case, it seems they were doing their jobs.
