Dumber Than Soviets

In the USSR, there was a time when rape was a capital crime. That law had to be repealed soon enough because you know what happened?

When the rapist knew that he’d get capital punishment whether the victim survived or not, he simply murdered her to avoid having a potential witness. Murders of rape victims began to spike. The Soviet authorities had to go back on this law because it was very counterproductive.

What I’m saying is that even the Soviets were smart enough to understand this.

We are surrounded by congenitally stupid people on all sides.
