People Power and Justice in SE Asia
I thought some of you might like to read about this.

A Vietnamese tourist was conned and Singaporeans via social media came to the rescue.

Heart-warming stuff.

Not that it's not touching...

But why is a man that makes $200/mo buying an iPhone 6 and wearing Tommy Hilfiger?

According to the vid, he borrowed the money for the phone. It's very easy to get fake brands in Asia (not saying he did, but ... y'know).

This kinda stuff right here makes me wary of the denizens of the net: if somebody has it out for you, they can find you.
Kinda reminds me of some of the 'Anon operations' I used to read about when I got a kick to looking into this sort of 'justice work'.

This kinda stuff is a testament to just how far we have come, really. We developed into societies which managed themselves and the mass controlled punished the selfish and negative, then when they came too large gods and like systems developed to keep the anti-social ones amongst us check. Now it seems that thanks to the Internet and it's connectivity we are rapidly developing back into a social world where there is no need for gods; the people are once again able to watch.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
