Mob Kills Taxi Driver

A taxi driver who hit a female protestor, blocking the streets of Daqahliya, was subsequently slaughtered in the streets.

Another protest, another case of mob justice. On Monday, taxi driver, Mohamed Othman, found himself blocked off by what media are touting as Muslim Brotherhood protesters, in the governorate of Daqahliya. Instead of waiting for Morsi to be reinstated, the taxi driver decided to try to find a way through, resulting in him running over a female protesters.

Obviously, this accident didn't sit well with the protesters and, in a fit of rage, the mob pulled the taxi driver out of his car and publicly executed him by slitting his throat. They then proceeded to spray paint “killer” on his taxi before setting it on fire, while he died.

As for the female protester that was run over, she is currently in critical condition, according to a pro-Brotherhood Facebook page named "Al-Azhar University in Mansoura."

Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case. Public executions have become more frequent since the ousting of Mubarak. Egyptian mob rule loves to exercise the 'eye for eye' policy, this happens more often then we like to admit. One could argue that this stems from a lack of trust in the justice system. One can only hope that those responsible will face the charges, but considering that security forces are attempting to imprison all Muslim Brotherhood supporters, it could just be a matter of time.
