    Exactly. We are supposed to be better than animals, but some either don't want to, or aren't able to, I guess. And some who should know better, encourage/influence others to act like animals to help achieve a desired outcome.

    Lynch mobs have been forming here and there for a long time. Since at least the time of Jesus. And I see no sign that they are about to stop.

    St Cloud has had more then a few false Police reports. There is a few Colleges in area. There have been false assaults on gays, blacks, witches.... (it was my moms school when it was a Teachers College)

    How is the IQ of a mob defined?

    So some witches falsely claimed to have been assaulted?
    Or some non-witches falsely reported that they'd seen someone beatin' up some witches?

    Why is a scene from "The Holy Grail" coming to mind? :) You know the one:

    "She's a witch! Burn her!" "How do you know she's a witch?" "She turned me into a newt....I got better." "If she floats, then she's a witch...What kinds of things float?" "Very small rocks?" "Wood floats!" "What else floats?" "A duck!" "So if she weighs less than a duck, then she's made of wood, and therefore.....a witch!"


    Can't fault the logic there....
