Taking it too far

Two recent things that made me wonder if as a society, we are taking things too far.

First is this strange and completely misleading judgment pronounced by one of the high courts recently.

It seems the court could not assess the mental agony of the victim and that too at such a tender age. And no it doesnt mean that this makes any sense at any other age.

Second is this highly insensitive and inappropriate Dilbert comic strip.

Flummoxed to see this comic strip today. Do we really call this satire?
