Man Kills Wife’s Attempted Rapist, Gets Life Sentence

Man Kills Wife’s Attempted Rapist, Gets Life Sentence

Mr. Tian witnessed a rape attempt on his wife, and in anger killed the rapist by accident. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, but told his lawyer that he won’t appeal. Chinese netizens asked “Will the judge still be unconcerned if somebody tries to rape his wife?” They also made jokes saying that if their wives were raped they would just stand there and say “This is my wife, please immediately cease this encroachment!”

    I wonder why he won’t appeal?

      I understand. If I caught someone raping my wife or daughter, I’d kill him, and I’d turn myself in, and take my punishment without complaint. Murder is wrong, and the time in jail is well-earned.

        Better to just kill him and hide the body in countries with bullshit for “law”. Right there with you tho; killing sexual predators is a public service.

        But life? If it as he said it happened then his wife will lose her husband and it’s not right…drat this format, too many questions left unanswered.

          But at least they started included several short netizen comments in each of the last 4-5 stories – I guess they read and took my advice…?

          Thank you! I’m glad to see people haven’t let go of this ongoing issue!

          This is why I’ve abstain from commenting, and in many cases I’ll just skip an article when i see its short format. I just happened to look in the comments for this one by coincidence. I really hope things go back to normal soon…

        I liked that last netizen comment about what he would do, made me “LOL” (as the kids say).

        Not many countries would convict you for that. Rape is one of the crimes, along with murder, kidnapping and some others that lethal force is justifiable in common law and most civil law jurisdictions. In America of course, there are states where lethal force can be used in cases of burglary or shoplifting, maybe even sometimes with a non-black victim, but this is somewhat of a freak occurrence.

          “maybe even sometimes with a non-black victim,”

          Haha, I think you got it.

      Mr. Wiener, that is an excellent question. Perhaps there is more to the story that requires uncovering. However, the punishment does not fit the crime. What was the poor man supposed to do, knock the rapist out with a kleenex?

      • mr.wiener

        Apparently you can offer him the kleenex after he finishes raping your wife…
        There is more to this than meets the eye.
