Hundreds of tea estate workers surrounded the plantation owner's home in India's northeastern state of Assam and set it on fire over a labor dispute, killing him and his wife, police said on Thursday.

At least in the very short term, they appear to have won the labor dispute.

Sasquach: Note to self: If your employees are standing at the ready to torch your home and murder you and your wife, you should probably consider their requests more carefully. Or at least tell themyou're considering their requests....


Yeah, because angry mobs armed with poisonous weapons do tend to be known for their listening skills and rational judgement.

Since they didn't use guns they didn't do anything socially abhorrent.

/being burned alive is acceptable violence, unlike being shot.

You could if they were semi-automatic assault bows. You know, the kind that fire one arrow at a time, over and over again.

Read it again. Slowly.

One thing is for sure, if those 700 plantation workers were getting paid so badly that it incited a riot even in India, they must have been really, really pu-erh.
