I Massacred 21 Kids, I am SO Sorry!

The country has gone into shock over the Nithari killings. The mangled parts of the victims are still being sieved out of the drain behind industrialist Mohinder Singh Pandey’s house. Helpless parents from all nearby areas are coming to Sector 31, to see if some bit of all that flesh, bones, blood or cloths, belonged to their lost child. Half a dozen UP cops have been sacked, a couple of probes being ordered. And what does the sick psychopath have to say? “Please forgive me, I committed a mistake”

This was not done for money, though the latest update is that this sicko was involved with organ trading too, along with everything else. But the way he went about is appalling. He and his personal human slicer servant, Surendra Kohli, lure little kids with sweets, get them in the house, sexually abuse and then kill them. Then the victim’s head is cut of, his/her body chopped like bits of meat, packed in a gunny bag and then carelessly dumped in the drain. Police found a saw, yes a saw, in the house allegedly used for the whole slicing-the-kids-up ritual. And this routine happened, over 20 times, over a span of two years.

No Mister, you didn’t commit a mistake. You committed rape. You committed murder. You committed the gory act of killing 21, and God knows how many more, innocent people. Children. And in the most cruel possible manner imaginable. You don’t deserve forgiveness. You deserve the noose.

Forgiveness. A rather funny thing, don’t you thing? Noble, undoubtedly. It gives you a sense of power, a sense of having done something rather good, both asking for it, and giving it. In a way, you feel vindicated. You wrecked my life, but I forgive you. You hurt me like hell, but I forgive you. But how can you forgive a person who takes away something so precious from you life, that you can never be the same again. These people, these parents, what had they done to deserve such a fate? Those kids, what had they done? Why did they have to die, in a way that you only read in cheap thrillers and psychology case studies?

Human rights group waste no time going up in the arms when ever someone is sentenced to death. ‘Oh, I understand that he killed so many, but killing him is not human.’ ‘Life is sacred, and when you don’t have the power to give it, you don’t have the power to take it.’ Heck, there was a bloody strike in Kerela because Saddam Hussain was hanged. Yes human life is sacred, yes killing is inhuman. That is just why these worst forms of vermin deserve to die. When you kill someone, and kill them not out of rage, not out of revenge, but just for the heck of it, you forfeit your right to live. Your life can no longer be sacred property, when you have taken so many. And taken them without remorse, without conscience. As far as I am concerned, that makes a pretty strong case point in favour of the gallows.

Human Rights are a joke a bloody lousy joke. Insufferable traffic jammers are all they are.
The point of sparing someone the noose comes from the fact that, he the evil and u the not evil are two very different entities and hence u the not evil have to be noble. its padantic crap.
I guess those who do stuff as henious as this shoulld then be given a sentence or death penalty which atleast gives them a taste of their own medicine...

That act is heinous, inhuman, and barbaric to say the least; yet I would disagree with you about the manner of justice you wish be doled out to him. Sending him to the gallows would accomplish nothing except perhaps appeasing some non-grieving individuals with a strong sense of morality like yours and mine.
A court of law has a higher obligation; to better the existing society such that it can evolve. In order to do that, any form of justice that is meted out by the courts must fulfill four conditions: a.the offender be made to realize and pay for his wrongdoing in a controlled environment b. The offender and his punishment become a deterrent for other prospective wrongdoers c. the community becomes a safer environment than what it previously was as a result d. the community develops an implicit faith in and a high regard for the law and order system.
If he goes to the gallows, I seriously doubt if any single one of the above will be fulfilled. Therefore, even though I'm furious and appalled by the magnitude and the insensitivity of the crime, and would really like the criminal to suffer in the very same way as those innocents did, I would still say a death sentence is not the way

@ pricky
agree on that one

@ id
i understand your point. the problem is that those four conditions that you are talking about harldy ever get fullfilled in this far from perfect world. a life sentence will perhaps give an average guy time to think about what henious crime he did, but thses men have to be psychologically sick.you can not, CAN NOT kill so many in such appalling manner otherwise, (i still believe in that essesntial, and basic human goodness)
wat is life sentence going to do to him?
as for terrorist, for them i really do think it life sentence makes no sense-for a completely different reasons. its just going to be another hijack/kidnapp drama, another bunch of helpless people killed, and then another 'religious revolutionary' freed by his fellows.at least, they can't bargain with death.

recent update: the servant is a cannibal, the livers of the kids were not only sliced but eaten by him...

what was more shocking was the way the state govt reacted to it, Mulayam's bro simply said, 'these things keep happening, its a routine affair'!! I mean how could he?

These men should be cut into pieces..to sustain some peace in the world

bloody dogs

wanted to blog abt the same..

pRicky said...

@ MT: please dont get into ur men unfit to live species speech again...
Being caanibal is as simple as being a vegitarian and it has nothing to do with the sex of the cannibal...
U did psychology right???

moontalk said...

@ MT
y dont u go ahead and do that?blog about it i mean, not cut the people into pieces :) that hardly would solve the issue now would it?
Yeah i read that cannibal bit, but somehow didnt really buy it.
the organ trade still seems more plausible reasons for the torsoes missing.this whole cannibal deal might just be a cover up for that.

@ prick
woah!woah!woah!dude!all personal accusations,and mud slinging on this blog will have to be against me, not anyone else :)
u understand ur sentiments, but dont u think u re being a harsh on MT here?

pRicky said...

Mud slinging not my game...
I am not sure what u call harsh???
I mean her comment wasnt that just completly baseless the part which i pointed out???
respond to that bit dear moontalk...
lets further this...

moontalk said...

pricky my boy,
i agree that MT's take that "These men should be cut into pieces..to sustain some peace in the world
bloody dogs" is unfair.
not all men are jerks (just a significant lot of them ;D), n no throwing the whole bunch to mars or some aint gonna cure any problems down here.
but saying cannibalism is same as being vegitarian, well, how fair is that now?vegitarianism is NOT a disease of the mind. cannibalism IS.and that is a whole lotta difference. you dont need psychology to do that.
wats it been now?4 months since we argued?sign!should ve know it was too good to last :D anyways, you were scaring me with the amounts of things u were agreeing with me, it's good to be back on track!;0

pRicky said...

see Moontalk
the point of matter was not that I was comparing caniabalism with vegetarianism (which was quite stupid!!!)but what I was saying or trying to say was the fact that like the choice of what people eat be attributed to any sex similarly no such comments can be made with regards to psychological disease and that is where my point about psychology come in.
second please dont mistake that I am trying to be pro my species... its just that the blame on the availibility of a Y chromosome has gone on for too long without any careful attribution and that is all I wanted to point out...
;-)

as simple as that.

moontalk said...

@ prick

I think the term "capital punishment" is a misnomer, but I do believe in euthanasia, such as in the case of a much-beloved but hopelessly rabid dog. If you love the dog you put it out of its misery, and if you wish for the dog not to be rampaging and spreading rabies or killing outright, there is really no point in incarcerating it while it suffers a long slow death from the disease.

In the case of crime, I have no doubt that death would be a deterrant for some, as very few people running around committing crimes really desire death in any absolute sense or they would not be committing crimes; they would be dead! Getting rid of these human monsters makes the world a better and safer place and is the only merciful thing to do, really, as with a rabid dog. It also restores a sense of balance and justice for the rest of us, and to keep them alive at taxpayers' expense is an outrage. (As is it being cheaper to keep them alive than to kill them.)

Just make damned good and sure that you have the right person before you do them in!
