Please sign and share this petition to demand a resignation from this police chief who believes that “If you can’t prevent rape, you might as well enjoy it.”
It is really scary when you rely on law enforcement to serve and protect, except that this police chief in India believes, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em! This India Police Chief made an appalling statement regarding rape victims, saying “If you can’t prevent rape, you might as well enjoy it.” Police Chief Sinha was at an illegal sports betting regarding the legalization of gambling. His justification is that if gambling could not be stopped, at least gain revenue by legalizing it. His comments about rape are in the same context.
The rape remarks came after a fatal rape of a 23-year old woman on a bus in New Delhi. This attack caused nationwide outrage and forced the government to change rape laws and create fast-track courts for rape cases. New laws introduced after the attack make stalking, voyeurism and sexual harassment a crime. They also provide for the death penalty for repeat offenders or for rape attacks that lead to the victim’s death.
Police Chief Sinha claims his remarks that “if you can’t prevent rape, you might as well enjoy it” were taken out of context but activists clearly heard his statement and are pushing for his resignation. It is claimed that the comments were offensive to women everywhere, saying that “It is sickening that a man who is in charge of several rape investigations should use such an analogy.” Ms. Karat of the Communist Party of India also states that “He should be prosecuted for degrading and insulting women.” This guy certainly does not sound like a protector and should be relieved of his duties.

New Delhi India Law Enforcement – What kind of people are working in the law enforcement capacity when the chief of police is degrading women and expressing ill logic. This officer needs to be relieved of his duties immediately. He does not seem to be doing his job but rather one that turns a blind eye to crime because he doesn’t want to be bothered. Get rid of him and hire people to really serve and protect the public!
