comments on social media:
“You should be ashamed of yourself how dare you blame the victim. Why shouldn’t she have a phone? She can keep in touch with her parents, when. She’s travelling to/from school. She shouldn’t have to justify having a phone. You are so ignorant.
This scum who did this to her needs to be caught .and all you are saying ‘should she have a phone?’ You disgust me.”
“wow she put up a really good fight! Now if only she had some martial arts training, the fight would have been in her favor. That man is despicable, trash, garbage, not human to do this!”
