I strongly believe that where there are limited resources, they should be focussed more on the victims of abuse, than the perpetrators of abuse.
So much of ‘developed’ countries resources – go to helping those who commit acts of great harm and abuse.
Repeat sex offenders and paedophiles and psychopaths, are given counselling, help to manage their behaviour, sex offender programs that cost around $180,000 per offender, per program.
And victims, mostly have to fund their own appropriate amount of counselling, to deal with the massive harm and often lifelong/long term damage caused. Particularly severe child abuse survivors.
In a more ideal world – everyone would be able to access all the help they.
But, this is not an ideal world. By far.
So, where resources, financial support and counselling are limited, it should be focussed on the victims.
The victims didn’t get a ‘choice’ in being abused.
The abusers, had a choice. Unless they were psychotic (not to be confused with psychopaths), which is responsible for a miniscule amount of the abuse carried out in this world.
And if they are repeat serious abuse offenders, they should be removed from society so they can no longer offend.
I was shocked to read on a self confessed/diagnosed psychopaths website, that he has knowingly/intentionally murdered 3 people, on 3 separate occasions, has no remorse, is happy to be who he is, admits he could do it again, and was let out of prison, because he agreed to have neuroscience testing done on him and counselling. Outrageous. This is an example of how unhealthy our society is.
And this is not uncommon. It happens continually with untreatable paedophiles, sex offenders, rapists, child rapists etc. And they are given priority for all Government funding.
Priority should be given where it is needed, where it is due.
To those who were innocent in the situation. Those who never had a choice. Those who were harmed through no fault of their own.
Society continually focusses on the abusers/psychopaths etc, with all the resources and help, support, while the victims, are just left to get on with it.
I will never believe – this is okay.
It is morally wrong.
