Four Men Face Death Penalty in India Gang Rape Case

Hosted by

Last December, a 23-year old student was raped and killed in New Delhi. Since then, reports of brutal sexual violence have increased all over India. Today, public anger appears to have found its way into a courtroom. Prosecutors asked for the death penalty for the four men convicted in last year's rape and murder, saying, "The common man will lose faith in the judiciary if the harshest punishment is not given."
