Naija na funny place
I won't be surprised if nobody arrests or prosecutes the murderers, because they killed an alleged homosexual.
I assure you, ladies and gentlemen,
That those who lynched that homosexual man,
Would sleep much easier tonight - and henceforth..
Enjoy harder erections in their dealings with their spouses.
[WIKI][/WIKI]If a 60 yr old man admitted to using juju means to lure a 16 yr old girl whom he had sexual knowledge of for 4 years and allegedly gave her a strange illness,he may also meet the same fate.
I have no tears for him
He brought the punishment on himself by his actions.The people got angry and dealt with him
I don't blame them
If the boy was my child,I would be glad the eediot was dealt with
He was beaten
They beat him to teach him a well deserved lesson and if he died,oh well,a teenager or younger kid has just been saved from a sexual predator.
I don't think anyone here expected the family of the young man to give the dirty old man a peck on his cheeks
Who knows how many victims,boys and girls are suffering in silence on account of his evil ways
The irate youths that beat shege outta him may have included some victims.
Who could blame them
The title of the thread says it all.
Man lynched for alleged homosexuality.
Not for using diabolical means or native medicine to lure a 16 year old and using him as a sex slave for 4 years and supposedly giving the victim an illness.
He was lynched for alleged homosexuality-the title says.
But whatever the case was, lynching is unjustified. In civil societies due process of the law is followed.
Let us try and emulate that
He is supposed to be charged, then he pleads his case, then if it goes to trial the defense and plaintiff battle it out, then truth and reason prevails and then the accused is convicted or acquitted.
But no, not in that Banana Republic called Naija.
Since when did the title of a thread outweigh the contents?
Read the stoRy again and follow the chronology
A 20 yr old came down with a strange illness
He told his folks what has been happening to him
The man was called
He confessed to using juju to lure the boy to his acts since he was z16
The father became irate
So did the youths
They pounced on the man and beat him to a pulp
The story was not alleged
We read the confession of the man too
That is enough to cause anger
And we know that sexual predators have many victims
I have no sympathy for child molesters homo or heterosexual
He brought this on himself
The title of the thread is also the title of the article. There must be a reason why it is titled that way, don't you think?
Obviously, it is a bigger crime to be a homo than all those other things I listed above, abi?
I don't even know what to say to you thinking any human being deserves to be lynched.
Have you heard of false confessions?
Let him have his day in court. Everybody deserves that at the very least.
For sale,that informs the title
Just like my threads lol
U need a title that will attract folks
Some crime are called crime of passion,this would fit in there
The boy needs to be tested for AIDS
That may be the strange illness this eediot gave him
If so,I am glad they lynched his behind to save other innocent kids that maybe victims
The bigger crime is the sexual predatory nature
Many parents would react the same exact way especially since we know the law is useless in NIgeria
Get people to teach him a lesson
That is why Families of victims in the west have also shot and killed perpetrators,some in court
None of us can say what we will do if our kid was molested
It is easier to say wthe politically correct stuff when we are not the ones involved
I will always be or err on a victims side not the side of the predator
It is a safer place to be
No matter this eediot's sexual orientation,my response would be unchanged
But for an absence of the rule of law and those intent on forcing an acceptance of western style homosexuality on us, perhaps this man would not have been lynched but been medically treated and therefore alive today.
It baffles me and boggles my mind that anybody will favor lynching over following due process of the law in any situation. Even in Texas where we still have death penalty, people are convicted first.
That anybody will not see anything wrong with this mob action even considering the supposed crime perpetrated on the victim, is quite disturbing; let us even remove the fact that people even under police custody have been known to give false confessions when pressured and even voluntarily, sometimes. We bitch and moan that Nigeria is a lawless land but when there is an opportunity for the law to be used, we applaud backward animal-like behavior and create all sorts of justifications for it.
The problem I have with this story and the problem you should have too if you are truly concerned about the state of affairs in Nigeria is...where does it end when people decide to take the law into their own hands? From an innocent person walking on the street that may have people with a vendetta just walk up to him and shout ''thief!'' to stealing a stick of gum to murders and rapists, nobody is safe when we encourage such gruesome acts of violence in our society and justify it with comments such as ''he deserved it IMHO''. Nobody deserves it. Nobody.
I really want to see how it was proven that the ''strange illness'' was brought about by the alleged victimization of the young man. The article did not even say what the ''illness'' is or how they came about to associate the illness with the supposed crime. We should be more circumspect in these things and let fact speak for itself by allowing a proper investigation instead of giving to emotionalism and probably a heightened sensitivity because the accused is a homosexual.
If what I ever write is politically correct stuff, it is not just to appear as politically correct to readers. Seriously, You better believe that. It is only because deep down inside of me, that is my real take on the issue and not even as a result of my upbringing or as a result of the environment I live in because if I was concerned about political correctness at all, these pages would not be a place where I would take my stand on such issues. As a matter of fact I'd be more popular if I decided to follow the majority that would think it is fair that the guy got lynched but no, it is wrong in my eyes.
Also and not on this particular subject but not off-point entirely, the same way you think it is easy to say politically correct stuff is the same way I think it is easy for you to say ''religiously correct'' (copyrighted) stuff in a favorable environment such as this where intolerance reigns supreme (I am reminded of another comment you made regarding my stand on homosexuality that I'd sing a different tune if a family member decides to do a sex change etc...).
BUT who is to know what any fire-brand Christian would really do if Ulomma came home with Iyabo with two adopted kids from Cambodia and said, ''Mom, Dad...this is my family"?
They will lynch Iyabo and sell the two kids to appease their Boko Haram Jehovah.
To understand the wicked mind of these Born-Again Christians when next you are in Nigeria, try and visit the home of a card carrying Christian and observe the way they lynch their housemaid or houseboy.
See How you're watering down the conversation with your anti born again comments
Is anybody stopping u from bowing to our graven images?
Stop insulting me we are not mate, I have put several of your type into family way........
I do not have a blanket opinion on stuff,never have
I don't even have a set response for similar topics around a common subject
My responses and opinions are always specific to the particular story at hand
So you have adjudged me incorrectly by most of what you wrote,not that it matters to me frankly speaking.
If a similar topic came up and people took the law into their hands,I might be the first to condemn them depending on the contents or details of the story.
Whereas I would condemn say kidnapping but I read that Atiku or IBB was kidnapped,I would say yes!,suits them right.
Does that make kidnapping right ,do I think kidnapping is righ?,We all know the answer to that question.
For the avoidance of doubt,I would not shed a tear in the death of a child molester no matter how it comes
If the law fails to get Him, let the people who can, help out the law,that's my natural man speaking
There are 2 groups of criminals I have absolutely no sympathy for
They are child molesters and rapists and I believe all my posts here pretty much say so
Family way,na im dey reign?
I am quite amazed at the lucidity of your contribution here. Nonetheless, here is a contribution from the same State of TEXAS that contradicts your stand.
Thanks count1 for the story above.there are many more like it.
What would sound unnatural is for this man to just pick up the phone and allow the law take it's course because lynching is supposedly barbaric.
Had the victim been a boy and the father decided to even add to the beating,a couple of bullet holes right in his blokoss for good measure,I will say ride on sir
That is how his Spirit moved him to tackle the issue at hand
This is an understandable lynching and I approve it 100% and so does the great state of Texas,that doesn't make lynching legal
Thank God his actions were judged on it's merits not by how evil or saintly lynching is
The dead man brought it upon himself just like the one in our story
One more scum off the streets and neighborhood
Safer neighborhood for our children
Most likely (and this point has not yet been considered), the young man in question was drawn to the older male not because of juju, but because the older man (contrary to the phobic attitudes of his parents) validated his feelings towards other men. We don't know whether the older man knowingly exposed the younger man to HIV or other transmissable illnesses. That may have even been the other way around. Because of ignorence, even many married men expose their wives to these, either by having more than one wife, or through them having a series of "lovers".
In any case, To wrong a wrong is wrong. Two wrongs never make a right; All people are created equal members of the one human family, both male and female, hetero and homo, black and white.
Reasonable people understand that "It's right to right a wrong, but it's wrong to wrong a right", just as we know intuitively that "To right a wrong is right, but to wrong a right is wrong". Those who follow God's Principal Rule promoted as "paramount" by Jesus Himself will always stand up for the victim of mob violence.
Left to our own devices, if we live in a community which abides by the "Golden Rule" (which is supposedly revered by all religions in all its forms), then we don't need to engage other fallible people (especially "religious police", aided and abetted by "unheroic mobs") to mind what is "our own" business, and which establishment uses an ungodly custom grown strong and enforced as "a law"....
Lynch mobs are hardly heroic. In fact, the opposite is the case. Running with the majority mob is what beggars us.
Lynch mob action is a crime of passion?
Please, let us not compare apples with oranges.
Crime of passion claim is for the directly aggrieved party i.e parent, spouse and it is not premeditated.
The FATHER CAUGHT the molester in the act in your article AND he was also the lone assailant.
See the difference?
Give me a comparable example where people who participated in a lynch mob
were allowed to walk.
I am afraid your post is IRRELEVANT to the issue.
PS- Oh! and let's not forget that even in crime of passion cases (aka temporary insanity), the assailant WILL still face charges in the great state of Texas where the jury might very well convict on murder charges, which could include capital punishment if certain vital elements are not proven or acquit on some or all charges (extremely rare) like in your posted article.
