Death Penalty for Rape

Two girls, one 16 and one 17, were attacked by three men, who forced them to the ground and tried to rape them. The elder girl managed to pull a knife from her pocket, and stabbed her attacker in the hand, then, being attacked again, stabbed one of the men in the chest. He died from the injury.

The girl has been sentenced to death by hanging.

We have far too many people in the US who defend and enable this kind of barbarism. Where is the feminist outcry? Where are the favored sons and daughters of Hollywood? Where are the billionaire bands with their charity concerts?
