Read the newspapers this morning & I wish I hadn't. Read the heart rending, shocking & saddening news about the gang-rape on a Delhi bus!

I believe swift and severe punishment is the only deterrent. These deviants are not afraid of consequence as it comes too little too late. Yes we can stoop lower as a people. The Delhi bus gang rape is proof of that. Is justice asleep?

Good to hear that Delhi rape accused are arrested. Now, punish them so severely that it serves as a very strong deterrent. #shameful

Sickening that 'experts' blame the spread of pornography for the horrific rape in Delhi.

Delhi bus gang rape is shameful and unpardonable. Forget the law and procedures, just catch the guilty and castrate them straight out !!!!

Sad that states with women CMs--Delhi and West Bengal--have among the highest numbers of rape cases.

NCR is an acronym for National Capital of Rape? And they can't blame it on tinted glasses this time, it was a bus! SICK!!!

This bus-rape isn't even about Delhi or Bombay. The fact that it happened anywhere at all is horrifying.

The gang rape of delhi bus for a medical student... The rapist should be hanged...
Pinki Sharma @pinkisharma4
Delhi Gang Rape, No fear in criminals, No strict punishment. Only 7 years punishment is enough what criminals hav done ?
Veeresh Malik @malq1
So why haven't we been able to get photos of the rapists and put them up on hoardings as yet? Like in Assam?
Gaurav Bagdi @PartRhymer
Imagine. What if prostitution was legal in Delhi? Would some of our lost, savage, messed up in the mind ...brothers have gone to rape women?
our government and judicial system must set an example against such a heinous crime and consider it as a rarest of the rare case.

The rule makers will not wake up till something happens to their close ones. Which it won't coz they aren't aam janta.
