If by "chemical castration", you mean burning the rapists' genitals off with sulfuric acid, then I'm all for that solution.
 
2005-07-15 06:39:30 PM  
I say we just kill all four of them. Torture is bonus, but they should die.

So how do you pronounce it?

My Old English class days are years back, but as far as I can remember, it should be:

AILF-gee-foo (hard G).

is there a racial angle to this happy slapping? When I looked into it, the slappers all seemed to be of african decent. Does anyone from UK have any input on this? (other than the offenders?)

British native here & so called 'Happy Slapping' knows no racial boundaries - caucasian or other.

IMHO it is neither happy, nor is it limited to slapping. It is common assault, & the recording of the act is immeasurably stupid. When the sexual element is added, it may well become an act of rape, or at least sexual assault. The courts look none too fondly on any of these crimes.

I can't wait till someone 'happy slaps' an off duty copper & the slappee finds themselves bounced directly to the cells, via the judicial (sic) application of a large boot to the crotch.

Emcee_Squared,
Thank you for making all the arguements I've been thinking about during the thread and then some. Good to know I'm not the only person who actually thinks about this, that not everybody thinks domestic violence is almost exclusively male, and that someone else thinks about the problems this perception causes. You're now my Hero.

I guess I can't be the Bevets of anything if I'm anyone's hero. ^_^

Seriously though, it's appreciated. I've caught so much heat for this it's not funny. But I don't let that stop me. I'll be out protesting the next store that posts a pro White Ribbon Campaign poster on their door.

I had a girlfriend request this as well, she was really farked up because of what her stepdad did to her and the fact that she still has to live with him.

sonnymarou
because a guy has low self esteem he's automatically gay?

And then the guy pops up from behind the tree and yells "TOASTY" as we burn their bodies

Protesting a White Ribbon Campaign poster...... that's gotta get you some serious flak.

In South Carolina if the cops are called to your house because of a domestic issue and both husband and wife look like they have scuffled - for example if one of them has a red face from being slapped or scratches - they will take BOTH the husband and wife to jail not just the man. Also if the man is scratched and the woman looks untouched she will go to jail. Also, if my husband hit me or I him -the injured party can't have the charges dropped against the abuser- if you are picked up by the police you will be charged.

Don't even try the "she really believed that" shiat. Georgia O'Keefe maintained (will maintain) to her dying day that she was just painting pretty pictures of flowers.

Yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaah, rooooooiiiiiiight.

Dang...there are lots of folks here blabbering on about handguns versus "Happy Slappers".

The article was about a gang of rapists videotaping their rape of a teenage girl. That one person warned against solving society's ills with a handgun. Yeah, well, ANYONE surrounded by a gang of rapists has the absolute right as a living being to defend themselves (or others). And if that means killing some gang-rapists, I don't see the problem.

Maybe the tyrannical governments of Europe, and the people who empower them with their willing submission, prefer to create a world full of defenseless victims for themselves, but don't count me in for that crap.

The entire reason these crimes are happening is because nobody's willing to kill or risk breaking a nail to stop them. They want their governments to protect them. Oh, help me nanny government! I can't do anything for myself! Wah! Wah! Waaaah!

Protesting a White Ribbon Campaign poster...... that's gotta get you some serious flak.

You have no idea. Last time, I popped up my sign (Domestic Violence: Women Commit It Just As Often) outside the store, started my speech when I had about 5-6 people listening, and a woman calmly walked up, ripped my sign off the wall, tore it up threw the pieces in my face, getting a round of cheers.

Undaunted, I continued, and at the end, I picked up the refuse and walked on my way, ere mall security throw me out anyways.

The store has yet to put the WRC sign up again. Or maybe I just missed it.

Next time, I photocopy the S&G studies. And paint my sign on wood. ^_^

Sounds like you live in a very liberated state. Is yours also one that allows women to serve jail time for paternity fraud?

Laszlo Fark,

The whole handgun vs happy slapper thing is about the people who videotape themselves smacking people at random, NOT rapists like in the article. Nobody is saying you don't have to right to use potentially deadly force to prevent yourself from being raped, they're saying you can't use it to prevent yourself from being slapped.

/wishes people would use some better reading comprehension before posting

On a totally unrelated note, stop quoting Clockwork Orange if you don't know what the words mean.

And it's not "gulliver", it's "golova". It's russian.

/stupid pet peeve


pedantic little farker, aintcha?. In the proper context it is gulliver, regardless of its origins.

The sentences for rape conviction are pathetic in England.

10 years maximum?


Yep, the US is so much better. From a flier posted on my apartment's wall of mailboxes:

"Sex offender notice:

John Doe (not the real name)
blah blah blah

Recently released from six year sentence for the rape of three children, aged six to eight."

That is a paraphrase, but the facts are correct. The farker raped three six-eight year olds and did six years. The "poor guy" may or may not have gotten what he deserved. I didn't see anything the night he "passed away."
 
2005-07-16 10:09:04 AM  
Similar thing happened in Saudi. The sentence was 10,000 lashes on each of the perpetrators. I'm thinking after the first thousand lashes you're usually dead.

Based on this story only, even with the videos, there may be no evidence. It says she was to scared to fight back or cry out. There'd better be an audible "no" or "stop" or they may get off. More will come out. Sexual history, aws she drinking etc. Even if she was willing, filming it and passing it around to your buddies is pretty sick. If she was raped, max is 10 years? A little low, no?

the quote "Some people may see it as a laugh" is in reference to the happy slapping trend not the rape.

in regards to husband abuse, my neighbor once came to my door bloody from head to toe with scratches etc... to call the police on his wife whom he'd managed to lock in a closet.

Personally, I've been hit hard by my drunken wife on one occasion, an incident that if observed by others and the rolls reversed would have resulted in my arrest. just saying...

Fight happy slapping with happy capping!
 
2005-07-16 02:01:11 PM  
rofl- thank you boogie_down!

I was thinking you got kicked in the nuts would make a great Fark reference the other day, and voila.
 
2005-07-16 02:05:16 PM  
The more I read about happy slapping the less I want to know.

Good for him. How did the police react? What was the net result? Did she get charged?

Personally, I've been hit hard by my drunken wife on one occasion, an incident that if observed by others and the rolls reversed would have resulted in my arrest. just saying...

Did the laughter ensue? That is the worst part of it to me. A WestJet employee openly chastised me for saying that I wouldn't risk life and limb to try and corner an armed pursesnatcher that took her purse (for which she loudly called me a 'coward')

When I asked her if she would jump in there if she came to the bar and saw my wife beating me in a drunken rage, she laughed, out loud, right in my face. I have a hunch that's what she'd have done there too.

she laughed, out loud, right in my face

In high school, one of the football studs broke his leg and had to be in a wheelchair for some weeks. As it happened, we ran into each other (not literally) in a hallway and he decided to vent on me.

Similar to your scenario, I couldn't win. If I fought back, I just beat up a cripple. If I do nothing, I'm subject to public ridicule for taking a beating from a cripple. You can't win, and people just want you to hurry up and make your wrong decision so they can make fun of you (or arrest you, in your scenario, for hitting a female).

Sucks. I forget how I handled it, but I was never much of a fighter... I probably told him I wouldn't hit a guy in a wheelchair and walked off to chants of "pu$$y" or "coward". Probably both!
