Recently, the brazilian media is being bombarded with the repeating news of a young lad who was caught red handed stealing a crippled man's bicycle.5 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
It is stated the the accused is a drug addict and has a previous background of theft and minor crimes, the guys who caught him tied him on a chair, shaved his head and tattooe'd "I'm a thief and a doofus" on his forehead.
After the first events, the media caught up on the happenings, and now, the thief became the victm, as it was stated: "He was tortured and humiliated".
As results, the guys who caught and punished the thief are now being prosecuted by the civilian justice and they are also going under arrest, meanwhile the boy who attempted to steal a bicycle is free, and also receiving public donations, which are now over 40 thousand reals (something a little more than 20 thousand US dollars) for therapy, drug addiction helping programs and the removal of that tattoo.
My question is simple: We all know there is no "right" side of both parts, but personally, what do you think that would be the best possible solution for the whole situation?

>>513525>what do you think that would be the best possible solution for the whole situation?
Bike thief is put on trial for stealing a bike, vigilante is put on trial for however many laws they broke in the process of what is essentially kidnapping and I suppose a case could be made for a form of mutilation.
They either get convicted or acquitted in a court of law, receive their respective punishments or go free.
What happened to the thief is definitely not okay, but it also doesn't change that he's a thief. So he'll be involved in two trials, once on the side of the defense, the other on the side of the prosecution.

I'm on board for this solution.
