Some people have brought home another very important thing we must take away from the whole scandal!
The girls who accused Kami Sid of rape was murdered by her boyfriend a few months ago. She left the world seeking justice and fighting to put Kami behind the bars for her actions. The system, the society, the powerful, all of us, we failed her!
