Surfing the Internet to find something interesting, I came upon an eye catching caption "a 25-year-old girl gang-raped by 3 construction workers." out of curiosity I clicked on the caption only to find a disturbing image than I shall never forget in my life. An innocent young girl had jumped to her death from the third floor of a construction site to rescue herself from being gang-raped by three laborers who worked in the site. When I told the tragic story to my friends, they were too quick to blame the girl.One even had the audacity to blame the victim for what he called wearing " provocative vulgar dress". The girl lost her life and her family will forever live in grief, as for the offenders, the capital punishment will be the result of their heinous act. Dreconian punishments are not the remedy for this deeply-rooted problem. Lamentably , this victim-blaming attitude is prevalentin my society. Boys will be boys!
