A few weeks back, a 14-year-old girl was abducted from a bus stop and raped at an empty house in the neighborhood in the dawn by we-don't-know-who-yet. It makes a HUGE deal in Indianapolis where this kind of crap does not happen on a regular basis (well as far as public knows.)
Now, I can rave about how sad and terrible this news is and how that rapist was born as an animal and so on for days, but my point is (and that I've shared my thought in a community online board just so you know): if you are going to prevent it, what should we do besides classic stuff like walking your daughters to the bus stop, enforce neighborhood watch....list goes on?
I just think the "law" should have been more severe, more uncivilize. If throwing people in jail doesn't do any good, maybe we should have had it written somewhere where the panalty aka consequences are severely uncivilized, say, once you catch the bad guy, throw him or her in the community. Let the guy do his term there. Let the community beat him up or.......ar...I really don't wanna say it, but bet, that'd work (and here is where I see a reminder for myself to find an anger management class, lol.)
