Polarised society and lots of deprivation leads to this type of reaction when people feel justice has not been done. Fact is this happens in lots of places around the world in reaction to government action or inaction. Just we seem to care less when it is in Bangladesh or South Africa or the like.

Doesn't seem like a lot. i think many of these numbers are just made up by the UN and US and their ilk. Plus if they hknow how much was paid how come they don't name and shame the payers.

Unemployment has never really been an issue here - although the quality and security of some of the jobs leaves a lot to be desired. Often amazed how little people are paid and manage to survive on.

Predictably a riot follows. Us is becoming so polarised that seems that any incident like this results in extreme reactions from either side.

how would they otherwise be detected and prosecuted?
Posted in: It’s strange that unless victims lodge a complaint, rape and other sexual offenses are not treated as crimes.

Timtak. agree consent isn't always needed but seems to me most cases reported are of movies or photos taken with consent of the later aggrieved person.

about 25 million North Koreans so that means they could give each one USD 20,000. although I guess most would be spent on bureaucracy and some infrastructure....

Call me square, but it never occurs to me to take pictures of either myself or my sexual partner in flagrante, let alone make a video. don't get the point and certainly don't see how those who "enjoy" this type of activity don't realise the possible downstream consequences.

Bgood - inclusive IIraq? you must be joking. The only way these disparate tribes/religions/races ever have lived together was under Saddam.
West should have just left him alone to do what so many of these Middle Eastern despots do best (given the mess of borders and "states" they were left to work with).
