Black Lynch Mob

 I am going back over my synopses, filling in the sex of the mass murder (M, F, B for both sex, and U for unknown).  I found this somewhat surprising item which runs contrary to the usual narrative for this:

Taylortown, La. (1903)

11/2/1903: Murderer used an ax to murder three other blacks.  A white posse took him into custody; a black lynch mob took him away from the posse and hung him.  His explanation was that “he did it just for fun and expected to have more fun in hell.”

Category: public

Suicide: no
