Canadian law protects even the worst criminals.
The politicians and the lawyers,
The police and the courts
All focus on the rights of criminals.
Victims usually lose -
Until the time comes
When the people rise up in the streets
And start screaming for justice.
An Ontario ( Canada ) judge has found two doctors not guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting a medical student in 2011.
Amitabh Chauhan and Suganthan Kayilasanthan were accused of allegedly drugging and then sexually assaulting the woman after a night of drinking and dancing at a Toronto club.
Justice Julie Thorburn says she understands that the trial has been a "long and emotional journey" for all involved and that her decision might be "difficult" for some.
But she says she has reasonable doubt as to whether the victim was drugged and then sexually assaulted.
Chauhan had also been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting another woman in 2003 with whom he had a relationship years earlier.
He was found not guilty on those charges as well.
