"This is a very sensitive crime, I have taken it very seriously," said Paramjit Singh Gill, a top police officer in the city of Patiala.

So seriously, in fact, that you waited a month before doing anything. One wonders if the victim hadn't drawn media scrutiny by killing herself if any action would have been taken.

Shiat like this makes me ashamed to be a human being.

It's kind of pathetic watching the outrage over this while last week 20 kids were murdered and the major response from the public has been "Hell no! You aren't taking my second Amendment rights away!"


It may be a good time to point out that these type of gang rapes would occur less often in India if people had the right to own firearms. The private ownership of firearms is effectively banned in India. Only the very rich and politicians are able to navigate (read as bribe) the complex licensing bureaucracy & laws and be licensed to have a gun.

This leaves us with an India where criminal gangs carry knives, lead pipes and guns... and effectively do as they please.

OgreMagi: gblive: OgreMagi: gblive: Danack: Bigger Leftist Intarweb Schlong: In before the Fark Misogyny Brigade to tell how us how she was totally asking for it for riding on a bus like that, and that women are all just lying whores anyway.


I don't think the Fark Misogyny Brigade need to get involved here, when the son of India's president already said:

"Those who are coming in the name of students in the rallies, sundori, sundori mahila (beautiful women), are highly dented and painted," Abhijit Mukherjee, an MP from Jangipur seat which the President had vacated before his election, told a vernacular news channel.

"Giving interviews in TV and showing off their children. I wonder whether they are students at all," he said, adding, "what's basically happening in Delhi is something like pink revolution, which has very little connection with ground realities."

Sadly nearly half of the politicians in India support the position that the woman on the bus was a whore and deserved it. The politicians are also saying all the women demonstrators are also whores who spend their time in discotheques.... and a bunch of other absurd claims. Unfortunately this is how women are treated and viewed in India.

When the path to justice is blocked by a wall of the government's creation to allow the criminals to prey upon the innocent, it is time to shed innocence and rise up against the criminals and their protectors.

The basic problem in India is that there is never any consequences for the attackers in any of these gang rape assaults. Each and every time they walk and no justice occurs. The women in India have had enough and are now protesting in the streets. And what do you ask is the reaction of the Indian government? They sent riot police to go beat the peaceful protestors - while many politicians called the female protestors all sorts of names,

That's why it's time for them to take matters into their own hands.  The system is broke.  The police and the politicians are protecting the ...

Indian police have arrested six people in connection with the attack, which left the victim with severe internal injuries, a lung infection and brain damage.

And I thought police brutality was bad in the US!

Seriously though, this is a shame in the most literal sense. Yeah, shiat happens in every country but it apparently is easier to get away with it in other countries, even almost a sanctioned activity in some, IIRC.

How can these countries look us in the eye and condemn our way of life?

Can you really be so obtuse? A pack of dogs are jumping on Indians while ignoring the problems in their own country and beating their chests about how they are so much more civilized...I mean fark me, most people here are slagging Islam for the crime when they don't even know the religions of India. It's ignorance and hipocrysy all balled up into a giant clusterfark. Sort of the history of American Foreign Policy over the last 60 years in a single thread!

It's not the crime, it's the lack of reaction and the vast amounts of "blame the victim" that's totally disgusting.

It was a horrible crime, and a very sad event. Treat it like that. trying to define a country by the action of a few (or that idiotic event to define a religion that has nothing to do with it) is not helpful to anyone.

atomicmask: OgreMagi: atomicmask: moralpanic: WTF? What's with all the gang rapes happening in India the last few weeks?

This is the hallmark of islam, rape squads used to intimidate the local populous into following sharia law.

Wrong country, moran.

India has no muslims?

Who flippin knew!

I guess that whole terrorist bombing of new dehli a few years ago by islamic militants in a raid from boats was my imagination..

Oh yeah, and its the second most popular religion in india. 13%, and that is about the percentage when they begin to do the sharia no go zones in nations...which they are doing..


Someone probably already pointed this out, but that was Bombay/Mumbai where that happened. Which is on the coast. New Delhi is WAY landlocked. Attacking it from boats from the sea would involve long-range missiles, not dudes hopping off onto the dock.

/Facts are fun. You should learn a few.

You just confirmed that you are a moron by claiming it's obvious when any intelligent person knows that there's a difference between pointing out a person is wrong for claiming a particular religion is at fault without kind of proof, as the case here and actually defending said religion, which no one actually did here. You're on the same level as those white bigots who throw the label "ni**er lover" at other people for not hating black folks the way they do.

Look, I'm as right-wing as the next guy and I don't want to see people get beat up and tortured. The guy killed someone and brutalized them first. Just put them down. There's nothing you can do that will even things out. You can't start taking pleasure in hurting bad people. It's just not a good thing. Keep it clinical and professional. Defective human... just pull a recall like it's a car.
 
2012-12-29 01:25:01 AM  
Hate to say it, but I will:

A lot of men are latent rapists when a woman doesn't "give in" or, in the third world, maybe just kissing her boyfriend on the bus.The word "no" has no meaning for these creepazoids. And yes, you KNOW who you are.

This woman died of horrific injuries. A metal rod thrust into her vagina? Such BIG men they were...so much so that they needed a large metal pole to take the place of their tiny penises.

As a nurse, I can only imagine how this woman died...especially from the infection and organ damage from these animals' penis substitute.

This woman was YOUR daughter; YOUR wife; your SISTER.

Fark rapists.

There's basically an inmate code of behavior that exists among prisoners across several countries that dictates inmate behavior. It's kind of fascinating, actually. Murder-rapists/rapists/incest committers/pedophiles are usually viewed as "bottoms" in prisons and get the living fark beaten out of them. Remember when Jeffrey Dahmer got impaled on a broom? Yeah. That sort of thing. I knew it was a common western thing, but from the sounds of it it may carry over into Eastern prisons as well.

This whole story just makes me sick. I'm sad she died. I was pulling for her to make it.

It's going to be a hard sell for the misogynists to spin this one. She was on a bus with a male friend, strangers went after her, male friend tried to get them away and they assaulted him. She gets gang raped over the course of several miles on the bus, then she and male friend are dumped bloody and naked from the vehicle.

I don't have anything witty to say. Those guys deserve to die.

You're right, we should just ignore the gang rapes, acid throwings, caste system, and the fact the majority of people over there dont gave access to vasic sanitation even though the nation has nuclear weapons.

Most likely not. The country is 80% Hindu.

According to the CIA:
Hindu 80.5%, Muslim 13.4%, Christian 2.3%, Sikh 1.9%, other 1.8%, unspecified 0.1%



If Bernie Silverstein and Laquanda Jones rob a bank in the US, you don't have to assume that they're both white and Christian. Anyways, based on last names:

Ram Singh - Sikh
Mukesh Singh - Sikh
Vinay Sharma - Hindu
Pawan Gupta - Hindu or Jain
Akshay Thakur - HIndu
Raju - no way to tell

Bear in mind that many Hindu families who have converted to Christianity keep their names, so they might be Christian as well. Hate to rain on the parade, but it looks like a multidenominational gang-rape squad...

I knew that, that's why I commented. Though the way I heard it told it's not so much violence as straight up murder. I knew an alleged, "creeper". The label comes from how you creep up on them and flip them over the balcony rail.

I can see where assault instead of murder would be preferable though(except for lifers). 20 years ago when I first heard about it (construction job with an ex-con).... You can get away with less than you use to be able to in that regard.

TigersorHawksorBoth: fusillade762: The protesters are demanding stronger protection for women and the death penalty for rape, which is now punishable by a maximum of life imprisonment.

I'm generally anti-death penalty, but in this particular case I'd make an exception.

nah, death penalty for those who kill several people.


So several pieces of sh8t could gang rape and beat your daughter to death, on a bus, and you'd be cool with them only getting life in prison as long as they didn't shoot the bus driver to death, too?

F*ck that. If it's in your being to be able to do this to another human being, we don't need your services on this planet anymore......and I damned sure shouldn't have to pay to feed, clothe, house and even "protect" you until you die of natural causes.
