    with the snail paced and tedious law system of our country the justice even if served will be of no value and compensating to the victim..heinous crimes of this nature should be fast tracked and perpetrator should be punished as soon as possible.

    Its all due to social media and movies that depict girls as prostitute or as a person who enjoys those things. Stopping this is isn't easy but not impossible too

    (All elite and communist chinese virus karma, closing or trying to close worship places now all evil spirits are roaming at night ?) One needs lot of prayers before venturing out late in the evening, as looks like all unsatisfied, unredeemed (without moksha) evil spirits of lust, alcohal ... are on loose coming out of the hell or volcanoes, to possess so says or implies following Divine message to John Leary dated Thursday, July 22, 2021 ...... Jesus said: “My people, there are demons coming out onto the surface of the earth through the volcanoes and the portals from hell that you are seeing in your vision. Have no fear of these demons because My angels will protect you. As you approach the tribulation of the Antichrist, more and more demons will be allowed to come up from hell to harass the people. This is why I will be directing My faithful to My refuges, so My angels can protect you from the demons and the evil people. During the tribulation of the Antichrist, the demons and evil people will be tormenting all of the non-believers who are still alive. My faithful will have crosses on their forehead by My angels so you will be allowed to enter My refuges. Trust in Me to protect My believers until I will bring an end to the Antichrist’s reign.” Ref: http://www.johnleary.com/index.php/2021/07/page/3/?cat=3&order=ASC
