This post is a response to the attitudes of the Delhi Police on rape. Fictional incident:
Thugs in a car shot policemen at a check point.
FictionTV interviews witnesses who saw the incident unfold.
Anchor: “Tell me what happened”
All the cars were going through the check point. This car came and rolled down the window and two of the policemen went to speak with the men inside. We don’t know what they said, but the men got angry with the policemen and shot them. The police always take money from criminals to not arrest them, then gangs shoot them when they ask for too much.
Anchor: “Police take money from criminals?!!?”
Well… these police are all hand in glove with the mafia. They know when goods get moved, they take money to ignore. If they take money and still stop the car, then the gundas can shoot them. They shouldn’t be corrupt if they don’t want to get shot.
Anchor: “Did these policemen take money?”
That is what they do. All these check point jobs have big bribes to get the job, then they earn like that. Why else would someone shoot a policeman for stopping a car? How come all policemen don’t get shot? Only the corrupt policemen get shot. They get shot, because they do illegal things. Sometimes other policemen shoot them, because of competition.
Anchor: “Why do you think this happens?”
Everyone knows. These policemen all come from bad families. Their parents are thieves, robbers, they bring their children up like that. They have these connections. Then they apply to join the police force and use them to make profit. How else will they earn so much money? It is bad company, that is why they get killed.
Anchor: “Are all policemen corrupt?”
Honest policemen don’t get into such situations. They know their limits and they do things in a legal way. If the policemen were honest, wouldn’t they be prepared for criminals? Wouldn’t they approach cautiously? Why would they talk with strangers if they didn’t know them and they were checking for criminals? Why would they get shot? They knew the people in the car.
Anchor: “Do only corrupt policemen get shot on the job?”
See, it is like this. If a policeman’s job were about getting shot, no one would apply. It is only these people who get involved with the mafia and gangsters, take their money and double cross them … then the thugs take revenge. Then they pretend to be victims to get the reward money from the government.
Some policemen even have made a business of getting injured and taking reward money. Sometimes they cut themselves, or shoot a hand or foot and say they got injured while chasing criminals. It is all a business.
Anchor: “Do you have anything to add?”
Yes. GOOD they got killed. When my sister got raped, they said she was a loose character. They asked the rapist what really happened, and blamed my sister for wearing cheap clothes. Is a salwar kameez cheap? It is because they have loose character that they see that in everyone. Good they died.
I hope you read this and know what rape victims feel about you.
