Real Anarchy

InstaPundit points to this CNN report:
(CNN)Gangs of men have attacked and injured two Pakistanis and a Syrian man in Cologne, Germany, in the aftermath of an unprecedented wave of mob sex assaults on women in the city on New Year's Eve.

Cologne police said a gang of 20 men attacked at least six Pakistani nationals Sunday, with two of the victims hospitalized. Five men later attacked and injured a man of Syrian descent, police said.
Two men have been detained following the assaults on the men, which occurred as Germany grapples with the New Year's Eve attacks on women in Cologne. 

Large numbers of women reported being sexually assaulted or robbed by gangs of men of Arab or North African appearance during New Year's celebrations in the city center, with some victims saying they feared for their lives.
Instapundit refers to these as vigilantes, but these sound like attacks on any foreigners, not necessarily the criminals who did these attacks.   Something that trustafarians* who claim to be anarchists while smashing in storefronts is that real anarchy would mean shopkeepers would sell these punks into slavery to pay for new windows.

*If this term escapes you, these are trust fund pothead political activists; SJWs a couple years out of school.

Good observation.

It just illustrates the point that the main problem with vigilantism (of which anarchism is a sub-species) is the lack of objectivity in the use of retaliatory force.
