    Default Brutal rape of 5 year old in Delhi

    Girl (5) fighting for her life in New Delhi after brutal 48-hour rape ordeal - The Irish Times - Sat, Apr 20, 2013

    My daughter is five so when I saw this I had to reread it to make sure I didn't make a mistake. I really don't know what goes through the perpetrators heads when they do this. I am against capital punishment but crimes like this cause me to waver. The Indian government needs to look at the status of women closely and do something about the seemingly casual disregard for women that exists in Indian society. The role of the police who in this case showed crass insensitivity would give me the belief that training in the area of handling sex crimes is badly needed. The Economist has a letter this week from someone who points out that by some measures women are worse off in India than Saudi Arabia. I gave my daughter a hug when I finished reading the article and told her how lucky she is to live in Ireland. She smiled but obviously didn't understand. I hope this poor girl's parents see her smile again.

    I'm for the death penalty. However, in some cases it's not enough. People who do these things should die slowly and in horrible pain. If that brings me down to their level, lower me down.
    Racism = fear, low self-esteem and breath-taking ignorance.

    There is nothing that can mitigate this activity and I'm afraid the deterrent of death is the only response in my opinion. We struggle in "supposed" civilized countries to prosecute the correct perpetrator so this would definitely be a problem in India particularly with the class system. However the greater good must be the holy grail and collateral damage is inevitable . I can think of a few in this country who may not have violated one so young but yet who's crimes were no less heinous and death by lethal injection would be the correct course of action....-..possibly for all concerned!

    I'm all for the death penalty.

    But is it possible that a teeny bit of the coverage of such crime in India is because in all the horror it comforts us to think that it's some foreigners half way around the world? It may well have a higher incidence of crime against women, and have no stats at all but just a suspicion that somewhere right now a lot closer to home horrific crimes are being perpetrated on some child.

    Our hospitals for example, sentence innocent Indian women to death, for the crime of miscarrying

    The guy who did it is a monster, simple as that and we all ant him put away forever.
    The Indian cops who dismissed the 5 year olds initial disappearance and told the parents:
    “Later they told us that we should be ‘content’ with the fact she was at least found alive"
    Scum that should be fired and then tried as accomplices to the rape.
    They let it happen, I can honestly not see any but a psychopath behaving in that manner, God knows what else they have done or let happen that hasn't had a light shone on it.
    India has enormous problems.

    The behaviour of the docs in that case was as nothing compared to the willful neglect of the Indian cops and then their stunning callousness on finding out what had happened to her.
    That said I have a feeling no one professional will pay any price individually in either case.

    It is a newspaper report of allegations made against the police by third parties.

    Even if true, incompetence and being glib in the discharge of their duty does not make them guilty as accomplices, no more than the staff of the hospital in Galway are guilty of crimes.
