those criminals are getting away by throwing some price for it......is that the way they respect women in US? by paying them out for the assaults? why does the law even allow monetary settlement as a substitute for the actual physical punishment the criminals rightly deserve? it is effectively nothing but costly prostitution......
I'm not sure what this has to do with my point. Did you mean this to be a reply to my post?
Where did it say that the group tried to pay the victim off? I didn't see that in any of the links posted in this thread. Also, I'm quite sure that that's not legal in the USA so I don't know why you're implying that it is. I'd be highly surprised if the rest of that gang and their protectors weren't brought up on a variety of charges.
Also, did you just compare rape to prostitution!? That's disgusting. Shame on you.
Weird that you said that people shouldn't comment on or judge the situation in India but you're throwing around fairly baseless points.
As I mentioned before, you really seem to love your country, which is great but when it gets to the stage where you have such a major chip on your shoulder - what good does that do anyone? I can tell you this, you really haven't been representing India well at all in NT the past couple of days. Thankfully, there are other posters, like Ashi, who do a better job.
I don't pretend to know which case is worse or which country has a worse history when it comes to women's rights. Why can't we all agree that both cases are reprehensible and are indicative of a poor situation for women, not only in India and the U.S.A, but also throughout the world. These threads shouldn't be bogged down with nationalistic diatribe. They should be highlighting the plight of women all over the world.
It's 2013 and we still have so far to go.
