[rollei_list] Re: WARNING about Dr. Mark Meijer c/o Global RolleiClub

Lynching became an American pastime because hundreds of Black Folks found their necks stretched on the weekend way after Col. Charles Lynch had died and buried. Many of the people in this country do not know about Col Lynch and his band of lawmakers. Actually if you ask a black person who Col. Charles Lynch is he might be a little hard pressed to say who he was. But mention lynching they might be able to tell you that someone in their family was hanged.
And that was not MOB RULE

Since I am very new with a lot of emphasis on the very new part, I would ask that allusions to something as vile to black folks as lynching should be sensitively used on a blog as open as this one. Just saying. No offense towards you Doug--just asking


"Vigilantism, or summary justice, has a long history, but the term lynch law originated during the American Revolution with Col. Charles Lynch and his Virginia associates, who responded to unsettled times by making their own rules for confronting Tories and criminal elements. "Lynching" found an easy acceptance as the nation expanded. Raw frontier conditions encouraged swift punishment for real, imagined, or anticipated criminal behavior. Historically, social control has been an essential aspect of mob rule."
