‘Bravo!': Angry mob tosses Ukrainian politician in the trash
@NBCNews This is why no dumpsters near Capitol Hill.

An angry mob of Ukrainians had a no nonsense approach to dealing with sleazy politicians. Member of the Ukrainian Parliament Vitaly Zhuravsky was lucky tar and feathers weren’t handy. NBC News reports:
Having a history of authorizing bills placing restrictions on anti-government protests and criminalizing libel did not appear to play well in his favor. Protesters, shouting profanities, tossed the neatly dressed lawmaker into a trash can, dousing him with water and clocking him with a tire. Zhuravsky was ultimately able to crawl out of the bin and escape the mob.
People around the world were vicariously enjoying the protest.
