oprah winfrey disappointed alleged molester at her south african girls academy found not guilty acquitted of charges

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!

    She was found innocent by a jury. Just because allegations are thrown around doesn't make them true, especially coming from children.

    Oprah is such a great role model. Any other institution or school, they try to hide molestation under the rug, but Oprah encourages the girls to testify and launches an investigation, despite the bad publicity it brings. She's a woman of towering intelligence and integrity.

    Re: Diva-Babe

    Yeah, and I'm sure the Salem Witch Trials were true too, how many kids accusing others of witchcraft and ganged up on certain people?

    Point is, kids do make up stories. It happens, we weren't there so how can we judge?

    She was found not guilty so maybe she did not do it. She Should think about suing the "Big O" for her comments and for firing her since she was found not guilty.
