  • I used to work with this guy from sierra leone, who said that he had been promised to some chick back there back in the day but he had a girl here in the USA he planned to marry.

    He took some vacation time - he said, to explain to his and her families just how things are.

    When he got back, he had a bigass bandage on his neck.

    Told us that when he was leaving town, his betrothed father-in-law tried to shoot him in the head, but only grazed his neck.

    He did not think that this was a big deal, and felt that they would eventually get over it.
  • Indian Romeo and Juliet?

    But soft, no lights, when I try plugging it back in again
  • There are no statistics on the number of "honour" killings across India, but according to one recent study, hundreds of people are killed each year for falling in love or marrying against their families' wishes.

    About 1% of the total murder rate, if you believe the graph on Wikipedia.

  • ...In the Indian version of Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt and Capulet seriously wound Juliet, and kill Romeo and their two young children

    ..and then they wrap it up with a huge song-and-dance number.
  • BBC articles aren't where I would go to get a good picture of India. The article says honor killings are common in India. Except they aren't. They do happen in places like the Alabama of India (Bihar state where this happened is the most backward laughed-at state). None whatsover in many other states and some/random ones in a few others.
  • Keep this story in mind the next time you hear of some horrible atrocity in Pakistan or Afghanistan and are tempted to snort and say something like "The religion of peace, indeed" As this article shows, ignorant, backwards behavoir isn't comfined to one religion. It tribalism and ignorance that are to blame, not a particular religion. IS it really any suprised that where people's lives seem stuck in a 4-500 year time warp, that their attititudes and morals seem to be too?
  • At least India knows exactly what to do with those scum. They're rightly put to death once found.
  • I'd watch the shiat out of that movie.
  • Dear backwoods farkwads,

    If you kill your own children, you have no honor.

    Sincerely,

    Honorable people everywhere
  • Me thinks you meant Mercutio, not Capulet, as t'was Juliet's surname.
  • Tybalt and WHO?

    Subby, at least google the names first... Sheesh
  • My S O has a strong dislike, and mistrust of Indian, or what she calls them; red people. If I joke about blacks, messicans, etc she gets mad at me, but she hates "red" people. I don't get it. The woman I love is racist toward leprosy having, carryout owning, curry smelling, forehead dotted, river shiatters. Seems like a double standard to me.

    I'm legitimately surprised it took that long.

    Regardless of where in India they happen, hundreds a year seems pretty common.
  • Anyone who is involved in killing an innocent 3 year old girl and 6 month old boy need to be dragged out in the street and shot.


    /boggles the mind how anyone could do that
  • Did they at least sing a song?

    you realize they have a billion farking people there right ? even 999 a year is still "uncommon"

    Except it is common enough that the Indian government sees it as a big problem. Is Times of India a preferable source?

    You realize that most of these killings are unreported as such? Still common enough to be a problem.

    I'm not. Try screwing up a Dr. Who reference and see what happens.

    And by their mothers family no less, real scum of the earth.
  • The three Indians were replaced by three new births in less than three hundredths of a second.

    It's statistically uncommon? Well why didn't they say that? Carry on, bigots.
