When Harry Lee died his neighbors from the north east cried and wished they had a leader much like him because he ushered progress by wielding an iron fist.

At the end of the day what we can be said is that: Murder is wrong. Subjugating people for sexual gratification is wrong.
The tragedy in Jennifer’s death is that we live in a society where economic conditions force people to sell their bodies for money.
The injustice is that prostitution is reinforced and legitimized by Jennifer’s clientele.
