Rape the Rapists?

Posted on Updated on

  I recently read the story of a Brazilian man who was imprisoned for rape. What happened to him in prison directed my mind to an issue: Is it justifiable to ‘rape the rapists’?
     A Brazilian jiu-jitsu instructor named Daryell Dickson Meneses Xavier was reportedly beaten and raped by 20 men after he was locked up for allegedly killing and possibly raping his girlfriend’s 1 year 11 months old son in Taguatinga, suburb of Brasilia, Brazil in Sept 2013.
   According to local media, trouble started for the man after his girlfriend left him alone with her son. A few hours later, he called his girlfriend claiming the boy fell and was having seizures. The child was rushed to the hospital and died two days later. Doctors who didn’t believe the boy fell called the police and told them they suspected foul play because the injuries on the boy wasn’t consistent with a fall but with blunt trauma, and also said possible sexual abuse was involved.
Doctors concluded there was blunt trauma and that the child also had a fissure in the anus. Fissure could come from sexual abuse or constipation but the boy’s mum said he didn’t have constipation.
Daryell was immediately arrested and charged with abusing and killing the boy, an accusation he vehemently denied. Then he went to prison and other prisoners who had heard what he did, came for him.
     According to local media reports, prisoners who were furious about the crime he committed against a child descended on Xazier and took turns violently raping him
in prison. He was also brutally assaulted. He was saved by prison guards after hours of torture, who removed him from the facility. He was treated and kept in prison hospital for weeks so he could recover.
When he recovered a little, they returned him to the prison and once again…the prisoners descended on him. They tore
open the stitches on her back, stabbed him some more and raped him again.
Xavier has since been removed from the Wansbeck, DF prison and taken to another prison.
    
   • The society’s reaction to any rapist is that of disgust and anger. This is acceptable and that’s the main reason why rapiers are removed from the society and jailed. So, dont we think that jailing rapists is not enough? Is it justified to have an overwhelming drive for revenge?
   …and back to the story, Did Daryell deserve what he got? Is his crime an excuse for the brutal reaction from the fellow prisoners?
    I’d like to know what you guys think but I believe that raping anyone is a crime, whether rapist or not. Rape is a crime and it’s horribly wrong, so raping a rapist doesn’t make rape any less of a crime. If in a society, a crime is retaliated with thesame crime; murder with murder, assault with assault, robbery with robbery, the result will be total lawlessness.
So far impartial justice is delivered, it should be enough.

    In the prison culture, and convict who has a sexual assault case is considered the lowest type of sub human and open to abuse that goes further than just rape him. I find that type of prison justice justified if it’s a person convicted of a sexual abuse crime. Thats MY UNhumble opinion.

      You are right about the prison culture and well, you opinion is not pointless but I feel that gang raping a sexual offender is extreme.

    You have conflated vengeance with justice. Also, have we summarily dismissed the presumption of innocence? He was accused and not convicted – yet. Good luck – anyone can accuse anyone of anything. But, once convicted – yes, your thirst for vengeance would then be understandable but it won’t bring the boy back.
