There Are No Happy Ending

Two Days before this past Christmas, Tory Lanez was found guilty of three counts related to the July 2020 shooting of Megan Thee Stallion. He now faces over 20 years in prison and deportation to his native Canada. For many, the verdict represents justice for Megan, but others contend that there can be no true retribution for victims of violent crimes.

Tory’s jail time doesn’t undo Megan’s physical harm, nor the barrage of mistreatment from people who ridiculed her claims for over two years. Even after audio was released of Tory appearing to admit to the shooting, some still doubt his guilt. The continued denial is a symptom of a patriarchal society where it remains the default to believe a man over a woman.

Everything that’s occurred since the shooting and the verdict indicates that the next woman who comes forward about facing violence will experience the same lack of care that Megan felt from her community. And Tory’s anger has led him to become yet another captive of a carceral state which disproportionately warehouses Black people. As a result, there’s little, if anything, to celebrate after this verdict because it doesn’t stop this cycle from occurring all over again.
