When Noor was murdered, the victim could not talk about it without mentioning her relationship with the perpetrator and the fact that she was at home when it happened. Now that another woman has been killed in her own home with her own husband, they are all silent #JusticeForSarah

How long before we get any kind of justice for any woman killed at the hands of rage and privilege. Another hashtag. Another long wait for justice. Justice delayed is justice denied. #JusticeForSarah pic.twitter.com/HZrb26yomx
