Comment: Should a child rapist get a reduced sentence…

…because he was living away from home and therefore ‘lost control’ as his lawyer argues. Should we look kindly on him for losing control due to these extenuating circumstances and overlook the fact that he has sodomised a 10 month old baby?

Read what Indian Homemaker writes and sign the petition if you feel this reduced sentence is ridiculous.

We need stronger laws against Child Sexual Assault, not this random leniency.

We need a website which tells us exactly where convicted child sexual offenders are living after their release from imprisonment so we, as parents, can watch out for our kids.

We need a lot of awareness on the part of parents to get serious about Child Sexual Abuse.

We need a strong refusal to accept such ridiculous arguments and we need to protest against this.

    a child rapist should get a worse punishment. It is a sad reflection of the human condition where the act is being given a sorry excuse. The only work of a defence attorney is to try and disprove if the accused is innocent, but not provide excuses for such criminals. Heinous as the act is, such lawyers are commiting a worse crime. The child doesnt even know how to defend itself! We need to have harsher punishments.
