We're furious as well! How is it that sometimes, the system just doesn't work???
This morning, Oprah Winfrey was in a fury as she received news that the South African courts acquitted the woman accused of molesting little girls at Big O's private school.
The former dormitory matron, Tiny Virginia Makopo, was found not guilty of trying kiss and fondle six of the students of Oprah's Leadership Academy for Girls back in 2007.
After receiving the disheartening news, Oprah released a statement, saying:
"We began this child molestation trial in 2008. More than two years later, I am profoundly disappointed at the outcome of the trial…I will forever be proud of the nine girls who testified with the courage and conviction to be heard."
As will we! It took courage to stand up for themselves. They should be proud of speaking out, even if justice wasn't served!
How awful to think that such a thing can go unpunished!
