Victims Are Rewarded Life Sentences
A child was taken advantage of, fought back, and was given a life sentence for it. What kind of society are we living in when a grown man rapes a 13 year old child and then puts her out on the street to work as a prostitute?
Children are supposed to be protected because they are some of our most vulnerable citizens. Are we letting our children down and failing them? We have child predators that steal their innocence and cause them to have mental scars for the rest of their lives. At the age of 16, Sara Kruzan killed her 31 year old pimp who raped her when she was 13 years old. When does the healing begin if she is given a life sentence for it?
I am speechless and heartbroken over reading this story. This is one time I really don't know what to say. So, I'll just end this post.
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
