5.The All-Female Gang That Beats Up Domestic Abusers
Domestic abuse is a big deal – and in rural India, where women's rights can be virtually non-existant, it runs rampant. Someone needed to step up – and the Gulabi Gang did exactly that. Dressed in their trademark pink saris, the Gulabi Gang encourage men who hit their wives to see reason – by beating them with sticks.
家暴一直都是一个大问题,特别在女性毫无地位可言的印度农村地区,更是十分猖獗。成员身穿粉红色莎丽服的Gulabi 组织代表着渴望反抗的女性的心声,并且也一直着力解决家暴问题。她们经常鼓励那些打老婆的男人用棍子打自己试试,尝尝是什么滋味。


Nowadays the Gulabi Gang is several thousand members strong, and they defend not only women but anyone who is being oppressed.

4.The Women Who All Killed Their Rapist


You may have seen this one in the news recently. A serial rapist was standing in court, when out of nowhere, hundreds of women from the slums he'd terrorised ran in with the singular goal of seeing how many stab wounds his torso could take. During the ordeal, one of the women cut off his genitals while another threw chili powder in his face and wounds. After 15 minutes of frantic stabbing and punching, the man was dead. In court. In front of everyone.
Then, in an act of unbelievable solidarity, every woman present confessed to the murder, while the police looked on in disbelief.

3.The Town That Shot Its Bully


This isn't that uncommon – it's not even a recent trend. Consider the story of Ken Rex McElroy, a man who relentlessly bullied an entire town for year. He stole, attacked, and raped with impunity, never once standing trial. Because you can't arrest a man with a name that manly.
And then one day, he was shot. Though the shooting took place in front of 40 witnesses and with at least two different guns, no one saw a thing. Decades later, this murder still remains unsolved – because everyone in the sleepy town of Skidmore has kept their mouths shut.You may not respect this kind of vigilante justice, but you have to at least respect that kind of dedication.

2.The Disgusting Tale of Benito Mussolini's Body


Here's the short version. When Benito Mussolini was killed, hundreds if not thousands of people collectively decided to turn it into raw meat. After killing the dictator, Italian partisans took his body to the place that had been used to kill 15 of their own men and put it on display for the public to use as a meaty piñata.
It was shot, spat on and had rocks thrown at it by the public. The result? Just imagine what would happen if someone ran over a hot dog and put it in a suit…

1.The Concentration Camp Victims Who Got Revenge


While some Jewish folk dedicated their lives to killing Nazis, some got their revenge a little quicker.
When concentration camps were liberated, the allies were astounded and sickened at what they saw. Some former prisoners were given SS guards to dance for their amusement, while some were given guns, bayonets and the freedom to exact whatever revenge they saw fit on their tormentors.Even without the direct help of armed soldiers, during and after liberation many survivors found their revenge. As the Allied tanks approached, many German soldiers were captured by prisoners while fleeing. One story details how a particularly brutal guard was caught trying to climb over a window ledge. He was dragged by prisoners into an alleyway, where they silently tore him apart with their bare hands.You may not agree with that, but you can't say it isn't at least a little bit satisfying to read.
