I read various articles on this. It seems as though the women felt the judicial system had failed them. Accusations of rape had been reported on this individual for a decade and the lead nowhere. The women were told they provoked their attacker , they were loose women, etc. it seems they felt the judicial system did not care to award them justice ...It seems uncomplicated to think matters of punishment should be left to the authorities, but what happens when justice never comes? I read that even if someone is charged with rape in that area, resolution to the case may take literally a lifetime. Sometimes people have already passed away by the time the authorities act. So what happens if an individual is a serial rapist? Well...I guess we know what happened. The system is clearly not working.
