It is unbelievable that this type of mentality still exists in the world today. A 19 year old Saudi Arabian woman was gang-raped 14 times by 7 men yet she has been sentenced to 200 lashes and a six month prison sentence. Yes, that’s right. The VICTIM has been sentenced.

The rape victim was punished for violating Saudi Arabia’s laws on segregation that forbid unrelated men and women from associating with each other. She was initially sentenced to 90 lashes for being in the car of a strange man.

On appeal, the Arab News reported that the punishment was not reduced but increased to 200 lashes and a six-month prison sentence.

    Savannah – that was my reaction too.

    Wylie – doesn’t it! The worst part was if you read some of the comments and that there are people who agree with the sentence.
