    thank goodness the elder lady could talk its not right when someone takes atvantage of someone who is elder or special needs . there are so many people who are giving others a bad name based on race or tiltle of job , which causes a stir of reaction from the commuity. im just glad when they are caught .

    We all make mistakes, little ones and very big ones. Don’t judge, don’t hate. I wish the victim a speedy recovery and well the perp, like all of us, have to do our time and move on.

    Race is not the issue, proper investigation and cross examination will ultimately give us a definitive verdict. People in their right senses will wait for the until investigation is done, dumb people would judge in a wink of an eye. Where do you belong?
