|African man burned alive.|
This video had been uploaded probably somewhat in the first week of October. No major details about the video was found except of the fact that this is totally graphic in content, and is not for the faint of heart.
It is rumored that the man was gay, and some say that it occurred in Uganda, while some others say Africa, but most probably South Africa as their language was identified by one of the online users, who knew African language. The mob were accusing the victim of thievery, and was beaten to a bloody pulp. You could also see the helpless victim making a sign language telling others that he only wanted to eat. Later, he was sentenced to Necklacing. Necklacing in South Africa is the practice of summary execution and torture carried out by forcing a rubber tire, filled with petrol, around a victim's chest and arms, and setting it on fire. The victim, of course, dies from severe burns. Anyway, just see the video below.

Of course, there are so many factors as to why people behave violently, but such behavior can be referred to as Deindividuation, a concept in social psychology regarding the loosening of social norms in groups.
