men and women beat suspected rapist in India.

That's going to smart! The 1st guy got in some major licks with the stick. for those who don't want to watch the video - about 5 hits with a stick, a couple of kicks, then the women begin slapping and pull off his shirt, then they vandalize his car by writing "goon" on it.

Indian politician attacked for alleged involvement in rape
Police in India have arrested a leader of the ruling Congress party on accusations he raped a woman in a village in the early hours of the morning.

Footage aired on Indian television showed the extraordinary scene of local women surrounding the man, ripping off his shirt and repeatedly slapping him across the face.



Police said the man, Bikram Singh Brahma, was visiting the village of Santipur on the Bhutan border, when he allegedly entered a woman's house and raped her at about 2 a.m. local time (2030GMT Wednesday).

A senior police officer in the area said villagers ran to the home when they heard the screams, and captured the man.

Later in the day the man was filmed being beaten by villagers with sticks, and slapped by local women.

The arrest was a sign that attitudes towards such behaviour might be changing, with even powerful men being held accountable for their actions.

11. Just lahk back in tha ol south

 

This sounds an awful lot like what black men used to have to go through. A bunch of rapes have occurred in the area, and a guy has been accused of rape, so let's lynch that in-jun/nig-grow/fag-git/patriarchal rape apologist/(insert enemy of the day).

12. the guy was caught in the act

and got the beat down he deserved. it wasn't anything like the lynchings that occurred in the south because of racial hatred and fear of black men.

14. Not exactly

 

What is factually indisputable was that they heard a scream from his house. If they caught him in the act of raping someone, he probably would not be wearing clothes for them to tear off. There's a reason criminal proceedings go by reason and evidence, not the assertions of a lynch mob.

16. Two wrongs don't make one right

 

Police sitting on their laurels while violent crimes occur is a terrible thing. The correct thing to do is to reform the police, not decide to become judge jury and executioner yourself. Yes, the crime is terrible- but so is lynching an innocent man.

17. this was not "wrong"

it was the result of people being tired of men raping women...and tired of their do-nothing police department. perhaps the police will start taking rape seriously now, and more importantly, perhaps THE RAPIST who got his ass kicked will stop raping women.
what right do you have to judge these people? they are tired of lawlessness, tired of rapists, and tired of a police department that routinely coddles criminals. i don't blame them one bit. nor do i blame the women in africa and other countries who are tired of being victims and are also beating the shit out of sexual predators. take you phony outrage for the rights of rapists. elsewhere.

20. "what right do you have to judge these people?"

 

The same right I have to judge the KKK.

"it was the result of people being tired of men raping women...and tired of their do-nothing police department."
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
"perhaps the police will start taking rape seriously now,"
You really think that assaulting a politician in public will make the police more friendly and agreeable?
"and more importantly, perhaps THE RAPIST who got his ass kicked will stop raping women."
Once again, he was accused of rape, not convicted of rape. As with the lynchings in the south, a mob decided that he was guilty without even bothering to check for evidence.
"they are tired of lawlessness, tired of rapists, and tired of a police department that routinely coddles criminals. i don't blame them one bit. nor do i blame the women in africa and other countries who are tired of being victims and are also beating the shit out of sexual predators."
I don't blame them for feeling outraged- but that does not give them the right to lynch innocent men merely on the suspicion that the person is a rapist. Being a victim does not give you the excuse to victimize others. I myself was sexually assaulted as a teen- that does not give the right to go out and murder random women on the suspicion that "they might be rapists."
"take you phony outrage for the rights of rapists. elsewhere."
He wasn't a rapist, he was accused of rape. If you feel that lynch mobs are a better way of doling out justice than the courts, why don't you move to Somalia?
