Via Bayou Renaissance Man. A very in-depth report of the Westgate Mall Terrorist attack. This passage caught my eye.
News of the assault was beginning to spread via frantic phones calls, texts, and WhatsApp messages. Westgate is in the heart of a Kenyan-Indian part of the city, and the close-knit community there knew better than to rely on the authorities to send help.

Damned Vigilantes and Insurrectionists making the difference by going into harm’s way and getting people out of the line of fire.
