It was an interesting experience for me, and I was glad to come back to the US.

Sure, there are bad things that happen here, like the "New York, Central Park" gang rape. But, raped on a city bus?

Hmm, yes, that could probably happen here...sadly.

I walk each year, with "Take Back the Night", to promote awareness of violence aginst women. I encourage you to support this event in your area.
Highlighted because it never happened.

Nothing funny about it, my friend. Just wishful thinking on my part. See post above. It has happened again.

Wow! Heinous. As I stated, cultural acceptance of violence just escaltes it. Obviously women in India are not safe.

I was being flippant, my apologies. It seems to have happened many more times since, not just the two you indicated.

It was apparently some sort of off- duty private bus. From what I understand, they're trying to set up an emergency number system now. Better late than never, I guess.

That said, it certainly would have to be a societal issue and not just a basic law and order problem; something along the lines of the acceptance of hanging black people from trees in this country not that long ago, and that changed. So maybe this will too.

Disgusting. Maybe we should stop outsourcing jobs there - be good for us too.

No apology needed, but thank you. I was hoping that there was just a single gang of thugs running around, but that wasn't the case, as you pointed out.

No wonder the people in India are protesting. If we read about a few cases of this over here, can you imagine how many don't make the national news?
