We are all overwhelmed, devastated, and heart-broken about what happened to him on October 7, 2021. This country is supposed to be built on justice for all. My dad trusted the system. The court system is supposed to give people what they deserve. He doesn’t deserve what has happened to him. Please support us in getting him the help he needs.”
