End Rape Now

16 July 2013, 20:29

I’m a law abiding citizen of this beautiful country

As much as I love my country I am disgusted by the crime, and more so by the lack of interest from the Government to do much about it.

Crime stats rise, good people die, young girls are afraid to walk the streets at night and the criminals strive. I’m in full support of any and all campaigns that promote action against rape but I feel that they also don’t do much. What real difference does marching on the street do for the girl who has to still walk home at night? What does wearing all black do for the girl who is surrounded by 4 armed men right in front of her door step?

We need to take action, real action.

As much as the debate about bringing back the death penalty would spark a lot of controversy across our nation, maybe it’s a step we need to give careful consideration to. Why feel sorry for these animals? Why send them to jail where they only feel back at home behind those bars?

They have friends in jail, jail is home for them, they greet each other with the greatest delight when a fellow inmate returns back to jail. They have 3 meals a day and some of them still have access to cell-phones to communicate with the outside world. So my question to you the people of this nation and our government, is jail enough?

Because they continuously proven to us time and time again that they do not fear jail, they do not fear the police, but when the mob seeks their own justice then you really see the fear in them. I do not condone mob justice but when the mob seeks their own justice you then see results. Crime might not go away completely but rapes and senseless murders in that certain area cease for quite some time.

Which make you think, it’s the thought of death that strikes fear into these monsters. So why should we consider their human rights when they can rape a 4 month old toddler? Why do we care how they are treated when they can brutally tear apart a defenceless woman in the middle of the streets?

It’s time we treat these monsters the same way they treat us. I say no mercy; no remorse should be shown to them. Let us bring back the death penalty, let them be tried and if found guilty without reasonable doubt, then let the rapists and murderers die by lethal injection.

Wipe them off the face of the earth 1 by 1. It is then when we as a nation united will strike real fear into them, same way as they use fear to concur and defeat us, let us use their weapon against them, and let us really save lives, even if it means taking some to do so.

Sometimes without war they can never be peace, it’s time we rage our war against crime in the most effective way possible.  Edmund Burke was said ‘the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing’. Let us not be those good men who do nothing.
