    A whole new level of personal defense

    From CNN:

    Woman beheads man, parades it through streets - CNN.com

    LUCKNOW, India (AP) -- A woman chopped the head off a man who allegedly tried to attack her and then paraded the head through a market in northern India, police said Friday.

    Police arrested the woman late Thursday after receiving calls from frightened witnesses who reported a blood-soaked woman holding a severed head was walking through the village, said police officer Ram Bharose.

    The woman, 35, told police she had gone to a nearby forest to cut grass for fodder for her cattle when a man attacked her from behind.

    "In a bid to save her dignity she beheaded him with a sickle," Bharose said, adding that the woman had bite marks on her neck and cheek.

    The woman also told police that the man had been harassing and stalking her for three months and she had no regrets about killing him, he said, adding that she would probably be charged with culpable homicide.

    The incident took place in Makkapurva village, some 125 miles (200 kilometers) southeast of Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh state.
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    LUCKNOW, India (AP)

    ... a man attacked her from behind.

    ... [she] had bite marks on her neck and cheek.

    ... [he] had been harassing and stalking her for three months

    "... she beheaded him with a sickle."

    ... she would probably be charged with culpable homicide.
    Stalked, harassed, then attacked, in fear of rape or loss of life. If true, then one would think termination of the attack was warranted. The facts seem to not matter, and the beheading seems to have sent everyone out of their minds, at least from what we can see here. If the only defensive tool you have available is a sickle ... You want to criminally attack others? Reap the rewards.

    Arrested in "Lucknow?" No luck, now, it seems.

    Culpable homicide, for stopping an attacker of a lone, nearly-defenseless (but not brain-dead) potential victim. What a country. (Sadly, this sort of manure occurs here, too.)

    Apparently the crime she's being charged with has a maximum of a 2 year sentence.

    Edit: It appears that the indian legal system requires a trial. But self defense is an affirmative defense for which she should be acquitted by the judge if it was, indeed, self defense. Self defense is a finding of fact. So if I understand it right: if a judge finds she was acting in self defense, she will be acquitted.

    Wacky legal system.

    Wow Speechless,I guess the parading the severed head around was a little over the top

    She was walking around the village asking for the guy's identity...no one could help...many said he look familiar, but used to be much taller?

    Hmmm, maybe sickle control will become an issue!

    IF the story is as it is written, then the self defense seems justified.

    Not sure what parading a severed head around is all about though. That's just a little bit odd.

    I wonder if She had a permit for that sickle. She had to defend Herself, I don't have a problem with that. She may have lost it a bit by carrying the head around. Hope it all work in Her favour.

    Women in India have Second Class status. It is a very sexist society. Murders for Dowry are also common, e.g. Marry a gal, collect her Dowry, then kill her and do it again.

    I wonder if it was a sharp sickle or if she hacked at him for a while. Out there in the woods, his head might have been the last thing she cut off.
