Woman walks through market holding severed head of man who tried… | The Angry Black Woman

I just heard this news.

Crowds in a busy market fled in terror as a woman walked among them holding aloft the severed head of a man who had attacked her.
Covered in blood, she held the head high like a trophy, said police - her way of showing that she had delivered her own kind of justice to her attacker.
The gruesome scene was played out in Makkapurva village, 170 miles south east of the Indian city of Lucknow, where, last night, the woman was being held behind bars.
The murder took place 100 miles from the Indian city of Lucknow
According to police officer Ram Bharose, the unnamed 35-year-old woman had sliced off the man’s head with a sickle she had been using to cut grass near her village.
‘She was getting grass for her cattle when the man came up from behind her and tried to sexually assault her,’ said Mr Bharose.
‘In a bid to save her dignity, she turned on him and during a struggle managed to chop off his head with the sickle.
I have a couple of problems with the article: How is it murder since she was defending herself? She was wasn't just protecting her dignity but also her very life. If it had been my mother, sister, cousin, auntie, and sepecially my wife or daughter, I 'd have no problem with that kind of self-defense. All around the world these days people seem to think they can rape others without consequence. It seems to me that is should be obvious of how evil it is but it seems to be lost on a lot of people - those who do it. And it's not just in Afghanistan or Egypt or India or Congo but here too! Because there evil men can't understand that it's wrong to rape people, maybe some of them need to loose their heads to get the message.
