  1. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.

  2. She was tempting people with her choice of clothes, so to make sure she wasn't tempting anyone anymore, they stripped her completely naked. Man, that gotta be one ugly-ass woman, if stripping her naked, helps make less people attracted to her.

  3. Way to go! Keep protesting against sexual violence. Hopefully these disgusting men will be prosecuted and there will be progression for other cases as well

  4. It's funny because all these Africans were naked living in the bush not even that long ago. They weren't tempted than. Ridiculous how these men in 3rd world countries act during the 21st century.

  5. Sooo, if a woman in a miniskirt is too sexually alluring (because men obviously can't be expected to control themselves), the answer is to remove her clothes…
    Someone had their 'thinking cap' on, didn't they? Well done.

  6. WTF is with those body parts? Baby's head? Human tattoo'd skin? What is the value in any of that? I just cant wrap my head around why something like that would be so important to steal on the other side of the planet….so bizarre.
