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


I am not aware of how well reported this horrible case has been in the media which other Mudcatters use. A twenty-three year old Indian student, the victim of a vicious gang rape, has just died in hospital several days after the attack. There is a report here: Indian gang rape victim dies.

I just wrote the following on Facebook:

I have just seen the terrible news that the 23 year old woman, who was raped by a gang in India, has died. Could this have happened in my country? Probably - and indeed less well reported cases have probably happened elsewhere. I fear that this mind numbing level of violence can happen anywhere where we use excuses to undervalue the worth of any human being.

I can't get my head around it and I wonder how my fellow Mudcatters will respond. The usual reaction of some hangers and floggers is quite understandable, but I like to think that there are plenty of people here who can see a little further. I am not the only one here with a teenage daughter - and of course, it sets me thinking. How do we produce people who value other people so little?
