Crime Won Again

They laughed while she cried, They filled her with fear and trauma, Still, they live with pride. They had the pleasure of exploiting her, Yet, they were set free. Unfortunately, crime won again.   The judiciary was handicapped, And the disheartened judge spoke, Of evidence not being enough, Yet, everyone knew they were beasts.  …

In the Name of Law
