Pratibha,Priyadarshini rape Murder reflection of Increasingly indifferent society?

Priyadarshini Mattoo and Pratibha Murthy rape and murder cases are a reflection of an increasingly apathetic society.
Instead of empathy towards the victims who can no longer speak up for themselves and the relatives who lost them so brutally, the judicial system treats them to prolonged uncertain agony of the kind of justice they may eventually get.
Sympathy is wasted on the scofflaw criminals who will likely be a burden to the society in more ways than one.
This in many cases becomes worse than the original crime.
Judges have to adequately reflect the society's disgust and abhorrence that while ensuring the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
In the absence of the victim and most likely destroyed /manipulated evidence, it could be based on a preponderance of probability in the interests of a safe and civil society.
No tears need be shed for , Rathores, SK Singhs and Shivakumars of this increasingly lawless society.
