Video of beating posted online; since removed, mother may now face charges

Doubtlessly frustrated with the lack of prosecution of criminals who sexually assault females across Asia, a Malaysian mother brutally caned the man suspected of raping her daughter. A video of the beating was posted online, but has since been removed. The mother may now face charges for taking the law into her own hands.

Caned across his bare buttocks by a tree branch, the man was so badly hurt that he had to receive hospital treatment.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic online) - In the video, the28-year-old male suspect is shown being caned in a village in northeast Malaysia. Thousands witnessed the furious mother meting out punishment before the video was taken down.

Caned across his bare buttocks by a tree branch, the man was so badly hurt that he had to receive hospital treatment.

Starvation never takes a vacation --


If the 28-year-old man is convicted of raping the 13-year-old girl, he will likely to be caned all over again by the authorities as well as receiving a lengthy prison sentence.

Assistant police commissioner Lai Yong Heng say authorities are trying to identify the mother and a group of people alleged to have helped her tie the man, pull down his pants and thrash his bare buttocks.

"He received injuries to his body and head and had to go to hospital, while a second man linked to the rape was assaulted by a group of people," commissioner Lai told newspaper reporters.

The people involved in meting out the punishment to the alleged rapist are also expected to be charged.

"People should not take the law into their own hands, even if they believe they have a right to do so," Lai said.

"We hope that the woman and the others seen in the video will surrender themselves before they are arrested."

Newspaper accounts say that the teenager had been raped several times by the two suspects in a house in the village of Tawang.

People have taken to social media to defend the mother's actions.

"I would also whip the living day lights out of any man that abused my child," one user wrote.

"All she was doing was making an example of the monster for all the other monsters out there," another person wrote. "The other monsters will think twice before they do it again."
