    All the people who wrote letters of support and stand up in lodge to support rape culture are doing a detriment to the future of our communities..what a sad desperate display..my heart goes out the victims and others he has harmed. This behaviour sadly is most likely been happening for along time and people need to,listen to the voices of the victims and youth. We cry over the loss of youth to drugs and addictions,,, this is a huge reason why many make those choices …hurt and pain
