Here in America we have a lot of sexism. we consider that women who feel like they wish to be in that attention just take in walk like that’s what they have to do to work and we don’t know if that’s Roman’s fault.

I would like them to judgment him to time served, boot the case – anything they can do to put an finish to this before we have to explain it to my granddaughter. It’s been 40 years.’
