Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Money was tight in her family, so when she was about 14 she arranged to take a job as a maid in the capital, New Delhi. Instead, she was locked up in a brothel, beaten with a cricket bat, gang-raped and told that she would have to cater to customers. Three days after she arrived, Abbas and all 70 girls in the brothel were made to gather round and watch as the pimps made an example of one teenage girl who had fought customers. The troublesome girl was stripped naked, hogtied, humiliated and mocked, beaten savagely and then stabbed in the stomach until she bled to death in front of Abbas and the others.
If there was ever a better case for the death penalty, I certainly could not think of one.

Death penalty exists in India. This shows its efficiency. What was your point?

It seemed pretty obvious, some people maybe should just leave this earth through the actions of the state.

Do you think any law is "efficient"? I believe that tax cheats, drug smugglers, rapist, murderers, speeders, etc still break the laws. Capital punishment in Singapore does not seem "efficient" also but in this case it was not two adults make a trade.

Except the state decides which actions are punishable by death and in a society that is horrifically unequal and condemns women to death for stepping outside without a man's permission...
