Lynching will never be justified. Poor people, black people, Jews and other religious minorities tend to be the people lynched. It's rare for the guilty person who committed the crime to get hung. Most lynching are done, because the mob wants to hang somebody for the fun of it. A trial by jury with a defense attorney, and prosecutor, a good judge, and a court of appeals is the right way to convict and execute someone. Jesus was the victim of a lynch mob who wanted to kill him and didn't care how they did it. Watch the film, "The Ox-Bow Incident". That's how a lynch mob works.
