The Los Angeles County police sent a letter to over two-hundred parents of current and former students. The letter suggested that there was a possibility that their kids might have been molested. In a matter of days, parents all over the county began accusing the Mc Martin staff of rape and other charges.

Although Twyla didn’t do anything specifically, it shows how much people hurt others which causes trauma to the perpetrator after the fact.

Endless amounts of girls and women have been judged for this same reason.
