Nirbhaya judgement

The Sc judgement on the Nirbhaya case is at last relief and closure for the bereaved family and the full nation.  While this case became ill-famous for its barbaric nature, several more lesser incidents of rape were reported since the nirbhaya incident.  So much so that societies in some cities have started community policing.  it would be interesting to note that i suggested this as the way forward way back in janaury 2013. you can read that article here;postID=6569083789828707730;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=87;src=postname

This hanging does not take care of the juvenile though.  He is somewhere there amongst us - working as a cook!!! What is chilling is - he is just one psycho who had been caught (and let off) but there may be many more such people  quietly lurking in the alleys!!
We must be Aware and more importantly Arise to stop any such crimes happening in front of us.  No amount of poilicing will work as there are just not enough police - only on ground vigilantes can help (cure the disease).  

How to avoid the disease is an altogether different subject and requires a fundamental change in our mindset - that is my next post
