Tragic story of 16yr old Indian Girl

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
I was shocked when this story came on the news, concerning a 16 year old girl who was brutally gang raped in India (TWICE by the same gang), then set on fire and burned to death. Image Just appalling.

Here is a link:

Her parents are seeking justice, including the death penalty for the perpetrators, but I imagine that whatever is done now they will never recover from this. That said, I feel sure that in this case the death penalty is entirely appropriate for these monsters, and whilst I'd not normally advocate a slow painful death for any human being, I could make an exception here and would entirely understand if they choose to burn these monsters to death - I'd even light the fire!
Ye gods, that's awful beyond words! Personally, I would not give them the release of death. I'd make them work in a burns unit for eternity. I'd then accidentally on purpose scald them a little (via a pressure cooker: ALWAYS were cooking glove things with these things)... I wouldn't make a very good Angel of Mercy
Me, neither, Sajahar. I'm an Angel of Retribution! It's one of the aspects of Judaic and Islamic law I approve of - an eye for an eye, etc.
Isn't that Hammurabi's law?
Ancient Sumerians aside, there's also another old expression that has confused me, "All things in moderation."
If all things have to be in moderation, doesn't that include moderation itself?
In other words, we have to occasionally be immoderate in order to be moderate!

I'm all for that!
It's a bit like toleration. It's always assumed that it's a good thing, in general, to be tolerant. But that depends entirely about what one is tolerant about! We shouldn't tolerate people being cruel to others, etc.

So 'being tolerant' isn't good in itself, it depends on what we tolerate!
