Life sentence for the rapists would be a good start indeed!

This is a shame, women should not have to protest to get justice. i read recently that women are frequently doused with acid by former boyfriends and husbands.

Cut his manhood off and let him eat it. Disgusting excuse for a human.

Sad to think that any man can use the weakness of another to his advantage. Such sick and twisted minds to satisfy their own ego and sexual urges at the expense of another. I for one feel the penalty should always equal or exceed that of the crime. Perhaps then a man would think twice before acting out his fantasies.

51,000 women were attacked and raped in Colombia last year? It's about time the people started protesting because something is terribly wrong. You'll notice that the article doesn't mention whether or not the attacker was identified and arrested. If the government isn't doing enough to prevent such crimes, and it appears that it isn't based on the numbers alone, than I hope the protests continue until they can no longer be ignored.

This is so sad, I am so sick of abuses to women!
I think rapers SHOULD NOT LIVE.
