Justice must be done

Aug 1, 2017
The fact that the perpetrators are close to political power should have no bearing on the judgement
 
The recent abduction, rape, and torture of a girl speak of the darkest of traits of humanity still present within our society.
 
What an unspeakable abomination it is, when a rape victim and her mother are further assaulted by having their heads shaved.
 
This kind of crime cannot be allowed to go unpunished.
 
The perpetrators need to be arrested and brought to book.
 
Our law enforcement must ensure that the case is investigated thoroughly, and that no stone is left unturned.
 
The fact that the perpetrators are close to political power should have no bearing on the judgement, and should not allow them to escape justice.
 
In the end, our society will be judged by our ability to bring these criminals to book, and by our ability to protect the innocent.
 
Anything less would be unacceptable.
