Merits a thread of its own. The incident is gruesome, but if it were really a rapist, one would probably have been ready to wink and look the other way, just this once. Turns out, it isn't that simple: All our rape outrage over the last 3 years has gone in a totally wrong direction, with the draconian laws. Outrage-generator Arnab Goswami was screaming for "TOUGH LAWS" in his studio so loudly as if he himself was being raped right then. Moron mediamen cannot think beyond simplistic generalization, and they howled and ranted like a lynch mob for "tough laws". Of course, it was easiest for the Congress to get out of the tight spot and the heat of national outrage, by passing "tough laws". No hard work in terms of police reforms, judicial reforms, quick judgements, ensuring that the law actually works. "Tough laws". Enjoy your "tough laws" dickheads, you earned them.
