alanabit BS: Indian Rape Victim Dies (54* d) RE: BS: Indian Rape Victim Dies 28 Dec 12

Now that she has died, the assailants will probably be charged with murder. India still has the death penalty, but executions are rare. I do hope that the guilty men spend a very long time in prison to reflect on what they have done.
That such a terrible thing can happen in India does not seem unconnected with the fact that women are seen by many there as being worth something less than a man. Many families consider it a catastrophe when a daughter comes to the world and not a son. Those of us who have daughters find this mindset very hard to comprehehend.
The mind boggles to think what kind of parenting these rapists had. I believe, however, that we can safely assume it was very different to the type that Don T is advocating.
And yes Wesley, the irony of the words "the patient passed away peacefully" was not lost on me either.
