Upon knowing that the thief was just freed by the police, she said "From that day onwards, we decided to spread the message in the community - that next time we catch a criminal, we won't call the police but we will punish them ourselves."
She set up a Facebook page called "Chapa Tu Choro" or "Catch your Thief", calling on others to follow her lead, and her campaign has had a dramatic effect. A lot of other Facebook fan pages with the similar message has popped up, encouraging criminal violence against alleged thieves without even determining their guilt or innocence.
