Rape petition

May I ask if you know the family invloved personally?
I ask because the email address mentioned here
(Nikki at comnet.co.za) is not valid, and neither is that
in an otherwise similar email I have recieved
(Nikkie at comnet.co.za), nor the same addresses in lower
case.

If the story is genuine (and it has a horrifying ring of
truth about it), then I have a message I would like
to reach it's originator. Unfortunately there are many
bogus chain letters being circulated in the internet by
sick people.


Hallo Nikki,

I would like to express my sympathy and grief at the tragedy which
has struck your family. I am sure that no words can do justice to
the sadness and anger you must feel, and that only those who have
suffered similar (saddly more and more) really understand. Perhaps
more importantly I wish your cousin as speedy and total a recovery
as possible, physically and emotionally.

I would suggest though that you send with your request the wording
of the petition. I know only that you are asking for a harsher
penalty for the crime of rape. However I do not know what the current
maximum sentence is, nor what you would like it to be. Also when I
want to sign what should I do? I do hope my feedback helps you in
your cause.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in these
difficult times.

wishing you strength and happiness,

David Johnstone
