     At some point during the night, Lorena Bobbitt got out of bed and went to the kitchen to drink, as she later claimed water. There paying attention to the knife for chopping meat, Lauren returned with him to the bedroom where John was sleeping drunk sleep of the just, and proceeded to a surgical procedure to reduce the size of his penis. Once, according to Lauren, a piece of John, and she took him to the field, where he threw to feed wild animals.

     At trial, John constantly confused in the testimony: he argued that talking about sex in That night did not go, and he immediately fell asleep. Then he began to remember what sex was like, but by mutual consent. Then surely remembered that Lorena tried to initiate sex, but he was too tired, and sex was not among them. Just John was so drunk that night that nefiga not remember about sexual intercourse (though he himself violence). This happens with the drunk.
     But it played in favor of Lorena Bobbitt, and after seven hours of discussion, the jury, consisting of 7 women and 5 men, recognized her not guilty by reason of insanity caused by the behavior of her husband. From criminal liability, respectively, Lauren released.

     But if Katherine Kew seven years and will be released, I I do not think she would ever find a new man - because there is nothing to cut members husbands, they should love and treat them with a decent respect.

STOLEN BRIDE IN KYRGYZSTAN

In Kyrgyzstan, nearly two-thirds of all marriages are the result ala kachuu ("Hit and Run") or bride kidnapping. Around 15,000 women a year are victims of kidnapping their future husbands. Although this tradition since 1994 is illegal, she is also widely practiced, and the authorities often close their eyes to it. Of course, some are staged abduction, but we know that most of them take place against the will of the bride.
Mayramgul, 19-year-old resident of the Kyrgyz village Aqsa, whose name her parents asked not to be identified in the media, has only recently recovered from a broken leg and mental turmoil. Injured girl was when she tried to escape from the three drunken men pursuing her village street car, says Kyrgyz human rights activist Ilya Lukash.
Drove the victim to the angle between the houses, the driver knocked her then Mayramgul dragged into a car and taken to the house of her future husband, whom she had seen for the first time. That same night she escaped through the window and walked with a broken about 10 km, returned home.

The older generation of the village at the table during the wedding.
"These pictures that resemble the Middle Ages - routine for modern Kyrgyzstan, says Lucas. The tradition of bride kidnapping, which is preserved in many nations only as comic wedding ritual, in this country has become a cruel and criminal fun.
"For example, you go in the bus - I saw a pretty girl - says Lukasz. - Call your friends, "I'm a girl I had noticed, I want to steal it." When the lady gets off the bus, grab her publicly, and no one responds. "
In this case, as in the famous Soviet comedy Prisoner of the Caucasus, the girl does not want to be kidnapped.

20-year-old Farid fights Tyhchykbekom who dragged her into the car with a friend to kidnap and force her family to marry her to him. "I'll marry you. Just let me go now, "- she yells.
Girls dragged into a car and took the bride to show parents Tyhchykbeka. In the same way occurs most abductions of young women in Kyrgyzstan. 80% of female prisoners are forced men to marry them, and only a few manage to escape from captivity. According to Kyrgyz human rights organization Open line, one-fifth of brides attackers steal just for fun.

Unlike the movie, the real story does not end happy ending: the victims are often custom concubines and free labor in the house of the thief. Rampant poverty in the country only contributes to the spread of wild rite.
According to the research of the Institute of Ombudsman of Kyrgyzstan, every year in the country kidnapped about 8 thousand. Girls, and most of them are abused and battered. 80% of their female prisoners are forced to marry men, and 20% manage to escape from captivity.

18-year-old and her husband Aytilek Baktiyaf, kidnapped her the next day after meeting in Bishkek.
However, according to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Kyrgyzstan, over the past 12 years, police were only 159 facts of kidnapping of girls, and, according to police statistics, the criminal proceedings instituted in only one out of 700 cases.
Scanty statistics can be easily explained: the majority of the victims and their parents perceive the wild escapade as folk tradition, not a crime, and not in a hurry to apply to law enforcement agencies.

18-year-old Bahtygul, a resident of Chui province, who asked to say her name in the press, first saw her fiance when she was taken to his house. Pre Bahtygul grabbed on the street and dragged by holding the hands and feet.
According to her, "betrothed", appeared twice her age, require consent to the marriage a few days, holding captive under the protection of the elderly accomplice - his relatives.
After weeks of unsuccessful attempts to escape abduction of the bride poisoned found in the house of potent pills. Was in intensive care in a coma, Bahtygul survived, but life remained disabled.
From the hospital frightened thief took Bahtygul to her parents, and a year later married another and had already to have children. "He remained unpunished, - complains injured - Before the kidnapping I was a young man, whom I wanted to marry.But now I do not need anyone. "

By ala kachuu - tradition of stealing the bride - in the old days in Kyrgyzstan resorted mostly poor young people - those who were unable to pay the dowry, the bride's parents have redemption, historians tell. Another category - grooms with influential relatives, but who wish to marry a girl from a poor class. Abduction was a way to give institutionalized form of marriage.
In both cases, the rite looked quite decent and even beautiful: the bride dressed in the best clothes, she had to go out to meet the bridegroom itself - for example water to the creek, where she was waiting Kunakov groom. The parents of both parties knew in advance about the upcoming ceremony.
In Soviet times, the custom of forgotten, and with the collapse of the USSR and the awakening of the national spirit ritual again came into use, albeit in a distorted form. However, the layer of the Kirghiz, engaged in hunting for women, remained the same - it is usually not rich people, emphasize local human rights activists.

According to the Central Asian Free Market Institute CAFMI, in Kyrgyzstan today to 20% of the unemployed (officially - only 8%), while the poverty rate is 36.8%. For comparison, in Ukraine - 14%, Russia - 13%, the Czech Republic - 9%.
The large mass of young people who are neither in school nor employed, concentrated in the rural areas - both in the mountains and around the major cities. Many have small homes, but they live only his garden land. A wife for this marginal contingent only means to get a free pair of hands.
In the spring of girls leave school, and families look for potential suitors already, who would graze cattle and do housework, says Rima Sultanov, monitoring specialist Kyrgyz centers for women.

"If my sister wants to stay here, I will not stop her. But look at her, she cries and says he wants to leave. So I take her home, "- so asked the young man failed to relatives of the groom. In the end, he was able to pick up his sister with him. Each year, about 16,000 women marry their captors. In Soviet times, this tradition is practiced kidnapping less than it is now, then usually the parents arranged marriages for their children.

Although a survey of another local human rights organization Open line, one-fifth of men steal brides just for fun, and if they have families, more than half of them fall in the first year of marriage.
High season catching brides in Kyrgyzstan in the spring and autumn - traditionally this period is and the increasing number of official marriages in the country.

Relatives of 26-year-old lead Farid Tyhchykbeka the tent after the abduction.
And the wedding and the limitation of human freedom in the minds of many Kyrgyz - are indivisible, and the disappearance of a woman in front of everyone usually does not protest. For example, in December 2012 Open line defenders simulated abduction in central Bishkek, near the Philharmonic Hall. Two young men were pulling "bride" to the car, the "victim" cries out for help, and, moreover, that there were many people around, no one thought to intervene, even though the girl has been accessed emphasized hard and rough.

The elder cousin of the groom tries to convince 20-year-old Farid marry him.
Such a low threshold of criticality to such actions by others laid in the national character, says Anna Lyanna, a psychologist specializing in violence against women. In her opinion, proper upbringing boys get many Kyrgyz families.

26-year-old Tyhchykbek with relatives are trying to persuade the 20-year-old Farid marry him. "I promise that you will be happy in the future, so please marry me" - he said. She replies: "How could you kidnap me? You know that I have a boyfriend. Even if I marry you, love between us will not. "
