India rape victimís friend recounts attack in TV interview; recalls apathy of police,

Source: AP

NEW DELHI óThe suffering of a university student and her male friend who were brutally attacked aboard a bus in Indiaís capital did not end after the woman was gang-raped and both were savagely beaten for 2 1/2 hours. Dumped naked on a roadside, the pair encountered shocking apathy as passersby offered only cursory looks and police debated jurisdiction for 30 minutes before taking them to a hospital, where the man received no treatment as he sat without clothes on the floor, the friend recounted in a television interview.

The interview Friday marked the first time the man, who has not been named, has spoken publicly about the Dec. 16 attack in New Delhi.

The attack has outraged Indians and led to calls for tougher rape laws and reforms of a police culture that often blames rape victims and refuses to file charges against accused attackers. The nationís top law enforcement official said the country needs to crack down on crimes against women with ďan iron hand.Ē

The 23-year-old woman died last weekend from massive internal injuries suffered during the attack. Authorities charged five men with her murder and rape and were holding a sixth suspect believed to be a juvenile. A hearing in the case was scheduled for Saturday.

3. MANY CONSERVATIVES THINK ALIKE

 

This is a world wide issue. The little brained people who have been around since cro magnum time do not realize the wrongs they do. They just eat and breed. Their masters pull the strings and they as good puppets just do as they are told to do.

The world would be much better with better education and better fed people. Sharing the wealth could be the start of balancing this poor worlds social concerns.
