People think our justice system is screwed
Now I need a turbo to keep up!
its their country they can do as they please , we could do with some of there laws being over here.
our lass would rather have the lashes than wash up.
Yeah, I can't criticize what the laws are in other countries. Seems weird to us, I know.
The only thing that surprises me here is that the gang hasn't been executed. Maybe they are due for the chop.
I am sorry, I know that it is their country, their rules etc, but ffs, I fail to see in what messed up kind of culture that can be called justice????? And before anyone says it's because I am a woman, it's not - it's because I am a human being. That is disgusting
The laws on segregation are ridiculous,
Lived there for 12 years - some of the shariah law makes little sense to a westerner as no doubt our laws do to a Saudi, but it is their legal system.
I am not going to comment on the actual punishment.
I too spent 18years there. Shia law is their law and while I don't agree with it all they generally have a lot less crime than we do. Though must admit women do not get a fair deal.
Whether we agree with their laws is IRRELEVANT.
Those are their laws and the punishment for failing to adhere to their laws is understood.
Clearly there is some separation between the woman being gang raped and the fact that she was in a car with a man who she DID NOT KNOW. That is the law she has broken, and has been punished for.
The fact that she was raped is clearly not relevant to the crime she committed.
Whether we agree is not important or significant, she knew the law, she broke it, she was punished, that's it.
Maybe that sort of thinking should be more clear in the UK (and I'm not saying
we should adopt Shia law here at all)
Who are we to say their culture is wrong ?????
The title of the thread is clearly not correct, she was not jailed for being raped.
