Re: India gang rape outrage... what happens now?

my mom visited a couple of slums in new delhi in the 90s. when this story came out, she said that she wasn't shocked. according to her, men in slums are raised like "animals"...you have to be to survive as the lowest denominator in a country of over 1 billion. and the "tough at all cost" mentality can translate into behavior such as this as adults.
(obviously that's a generalization, since there are plenty of moral and decent people in slums as well)
sam l is pretty spot on, imo, about the socioeconomic problems plaguing india that led to this.
