In India you have to be a spineless worm to survive the law. If your a law abiding citizen that is. Being a good Samaritan will get you nowhere or worse attacked by the very law enforcement agency that is supposed to protect you. Why? It's because almost every police station and it's mother is as corrupt as a scratched up CD. In this country the local cops are knee dip in bribes from the MLA to your local rowdy gang.
Just last week a good Samaritan helped catch one of these dhoti wearing creatures we call MLAs in a money laundering operation. Not even a few days later, he and his family gets attacked by some hired muscle (read local goonda) belonging to said MLA, with dire warnings to drop the case and withdraw the complaint. The MLA goes Scott-free and the cops stick their heads in the sand regarding the whole matter. Why again? The cops are cahoots with local gangs and are more interested in protecting their cash cows than 'god forbid' doing their jobs.
It's worse if your a woman and lodge a complaint. The the local rowdy gang will not only beat you up, but rape your first and any female relatives you may be living with. It doesn't help that rape victims in this country are still told that they asked for it instead being considered a victim and being helped to get over the trauma.
They want us to vote for these bastards? Fuck off. They want us to not take matters into our own hands and leave in the 'oh-so-capable' hands of the police when it comes to the criminal elment? Fuck yourself up, down and sideways.
