Harper and Dusty locate him and bring him to his home. They are three.
The Episode Review
This show touched on important issues like sexual assault and racial discrimination by police officers. In the present police officers should have been aware of this. Boys may also be victimized by sexual abuse, and they ought to be taught to defend themselves.
Tragically Malakai was a victim of police racism profiling, but Harper and Dusty ought to have brought Malakai home and assisted him. The trio was the final thing they could do. Harper might no longer be close to Amerie however she knows this will be detrimental to her. Are they trying to harm Amerie intentionally? The betrayal of Amerie is likely to be even more devastating than the previous one. Dusty?
