Mob justice isn’t justice

This should remind us – again – of the dangers in using a criminal trial as a form of political and social expression. Crowds chanting “no justice, no peace” are not what “democracy looks like.” They are – however well intentioned – mobs bent on something that looks uncomfortably like vigilante justice. They are what demagoguery looks like.
