What's with the desperate need to brand an entire nation by the acts of a few? It's not like Adam Lanza or Erika Menendez represent all Americans. The "city bus" was not plying with passengers that night. It was being taken out on a joy ride by the driver and his goon friends.

Having said that, New Delhi is fast gaining a reputation of being the 'Rape Capital' of India. Pity it had to take such a gory incident for the government to sit up and take notice.

Don't take it personally. No one thinks you are a rapist. The people of India have stood up for this woman and that's a good thing. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of violence against women in India, though much of it seems to be in the more rural areas where the people are less educated (I'm referring to young brides who are killed or abused by the husband's family, etc).

Any insight on why Delhi is experiencing the "rape capital of India" phenomenon?

The cultural acceptance of "Eve teasing" is something that has to change in the Indian sub-continent. It is viewed as harmless fun by many in society, but clearly it is not, and leads ultimately to such monstrous occurences as this travesty in new Delhi.

Still, please don't imagine that India is unsafe based on this awful tragedy.

It needs to change everywhere. Its not really safe for anyone, anywhere. Safety is an illusion.
It will be interesting to see if any officials get cleared out for this.

And its going to take women to get it done apparently:

Saudi Gazette - West Bengal plans 65 all-women police stations

"The woman chief minister of India’s West Bengal state unveiled plans Friday for 65 all-female police stations, as authorities tried to assuage growing anger over a gang-rape in New Delhi."

Kinda sick it has to be taken to that level and creeps me out about the men that are in power there.

India needs to change a lot in general on this front. I could go into the sex trade they have there where they sell their own children because it is such a poor state of affairs to survive but that is another thread. Its not like here even in America we are immune to these things, or immune to them being ignored.

Yes, I saw the whole story and it made me sick to my stomach. To think that people can stand by and let monsters do something like this. It is appalling.

Women are not safe any place, it seems like.

What is with men, who do this crime? Do they realize how completely depraved it is to act like this? No self control, or empathy for the victim, who in this case, DIED, from their heinous depravity.

Appalled.

And, I never want to EVER go to India!!!! That is for sure!!!!!
It happens here too, jasper12! The year I moved to Ann Arbor to start college there, a gang of frat boys was going around town gang-raping any man they spotted on the sidewalk who looked gay to them. But you're right -- we can't afford not to confront this kind of behavior. It's the only way to stop it.

This is NOT about individual sociopathy. Social status is everything, and I do mean everything, to our species. And one way of gaining status among males is having sex with a woman. Another way of gaining status is doing something edgy and daring in front of the guys. So that's where gang rapes, especially public gang rapes, come in. It would not have happened if even one of those men had stood up to the others and said "I'm not having anything to do with this ***** you guys, and if you keep talking about it I'm turning you in to the cops." But many men are waaaaaaay too chicken to do that.
