What is Wrong With This Picture?

Saudi gang rape sentence 'unjust'

Which seems like the rapists were complaining about their punishment. But you'd be wrong, the victim of a gang rape by 7 men has been sentenced to 200 lashes and 6 months in prison because she violated some laws on the segregation of the sexes by being in an unrelated man's car at the time of the attack.

In other words, she was at fault so the gang rape she suffered through wasn't enough punishment and now she gets to go to prison and be beaten with a whip.

Yes, the rapists were punished as well with under a year to five years in prison.

What in the name of all that is right is wrong with these freaking people? Beating a rape victim and putting her in prison for being in a man's car? How deeply, deeply wrong this "justice" system is. To say I am disgusted is extreme understatement.
