A country in moral chaos!!. Once rapists on other ethnic group, the animals have turned their wrath on their own kids. For its shortcomings, I still admire LTTE for its harsh punishment to child rapists. Their punishment was execution of the psychopaths. We need to deliver harsher punishments to these animals in Sri Lanka. But, what can you do when some higher-ups are involved in 'sex tourism' and raping activities? SL is going to the dogs.
