Chile - Unofficial whipping of thieves

This one-minute clip, "Los pillan roban y son castigados a poto pelado" ["Caught stealing, stripped and punished"], appeared in October 2014 under a Chilean flag, but it was at first thought to be from Argentina. I am now informed that it is indeed from Chile (based on the version of Spanish being spoken). Four teenagers are made to lower their trousers and bend over to be disciplined across the buttocks by a group of men. The heavy stick used is rather unsuitable, but only two or three strokes are meted out in each case. It is assumed that this is illicit unofficial retribution by the aggrieved parties, perhaps (one might surmise) on the basis of "take our consequences or we will hand you over to the authorities". Nevertheless, the modus operandi is surprisingly formal, given the circumstances. The lads reluctantly submit to the punishment but do not take it at all well.
