In 1978 while on a Kenya Safari we had taken a little side trip thru a town where there was a flea market going on....lots of tables with all kinds of goods. I was checking out the T-shirts, laid my wallet w/passport and everything I owned on top of one particularly big pile to hold up a really cute T-shirt to see how it might fit...you know the drill
Continued shopping the market until about an hour later when we were leaving and I realized...HOLY S--t!!!! I retraced my steps....and WOW! There it was...exactly where I had left it...never touched!
I found out later that day there was a thing called 'Mob Rule' in Kenya.
There was an article in the local paper where a local fellow had been held up by a knife and robbed of his sneakers and his wristwatch. The townspeople who saw it happened chased the robber until they caught him...beat him up called the police, they beat him up and jailed him...the judge ordered him to prison for 5 years and 20 salt water whip lashings!
Maybe we need some of THAT!!!!
