There should be no argument in Syed’s case if the court could be able to provide substantial amount of solid proof that show

A film, which revealed rape crimes on U.S college campuses, their institutional cover- ups and the everlasting effects the assaults left on the students and their families. Later in the year, the writers worked with film director, Catherine Hardwicke, to produce a PSA illustrating the sexual violence occurring in educational institutions across the nation.
