The British justice system is obsessed with the idea of rehabilitation as a core principle.
There is history behind that obsession which you can read about here if interested;
I’m not going to take out a broad brush and say no one can be rehabilitated ever. It really depends very much on who and what it is you are trying to rehabilitate.
Its viable to rehabilitate a drug addict or alcoholic for example. Its done every day. It might be possible to rehabilitate someone that was once a thief. There are all manner of smallish crimes and actions which I do think you could probably get people to quit doing or not do at all.
And then there are classes of people who I do not believe you can ever truly and fully rehabilitate. They engage in actions so bad that even if time passes and they don’t appear to have acted up again, you would drop your guard at your peril.
I would regard the kinds of people we deal with as being in a class that cannot be rehabilitated.
To that list I’d add all those that have been exposed by the many anti grooming groups that are active in the UK.
Both classes of offender are vile. Both classes of offender are pathological liars, and you could play excuse Bingo, marking off the tired responses they give.
I have yet to come across one high profile offender that demonstrated sincere remorse before going on to show how he(or she) became a pillar of the community. They are only sorry when they get caught and it impacts upon their life and comforts.
You have absolutely no chance of ‘rehabilitating’ anyone who fundamentally refuses to fully accept the gravity of their actions. Not that you have a high chance anyway, but without that sincere acceptance you have nil.
All you have is someone that will repeat the action.
But even if they did appear to fully own their actions they are often devious liars who will try to convince you how much they have changed.
I think once someone has proven form for certain actions that society finds taboo that they can never be trusted again.
In a sense the courts do sort of agree that some of the offenders cannot be rehabilitated. I suppose the life time pet ban (as weak to enforce as it is) is a sign that they don’t think that person can ever be trusted.
Only a total fool would ever take someone into their life that had proven history for certain types of action.
You would have to have something wrong with you to get together with someone that had history for the sort of extreme violent sadism we have highlighted, you’d have to have a screw loose to let that be around your life.
You’d also be a fool to get together with anyone that proven history of sexual offences against children. It is totally beyond me how anyone could do anything but dissociate from that individual as soon as their actions were proven.
It is astonishing to me that there will be girls/women who will accept such individuals into their life knowing who and what they are. In doing so they put themselves and any family they have at risk.
To the best of my knowledge there is no formal rehabilitation programme that specifically deals with the class of offender we expose. Not saying I’d be a fan of wasting money on them, but I’m not aware that there is one that’s specific to that area.
There are such programmes for child sex offenders, but as far as I’m aware the individual doesn’t have to take part if he’s in prison. Its voluntary for them.
Our Government lean heavily on a number of non custodial alternatives that, in theory, are designed to prevent an individual from offending while still living free and easy in the community.
They cost a lot of money and don’t work well at all. The Government doesn’t have anything like the man power to properly monitor all the convicted sex offenders that they give an alternative to custody to.
What chance do you have of them properly monitoring all the psychos who have life time pet ban orders?
Id love to be able to tell you that there’s nothing to worry about and that your town/neighbourhood isn’t impacted. But the reality is that this country is crawling with absolute filth and some of them will be near you. Even if you are not yet aware.
If authorities do anything its to protect the identity and rights of the abuser while deny those in the immediate area full truth.
Unless you spent a good while taking an overview you would not believe the scale of utter filth that walks free this evening.
They wont be a threat to the politicians, judges and those who are bleeding hearts though. They are safe in their exclusive and gated community with extra security. Its everyone else that gets placed at risk.
If the authorities were doing the job they are well rewarded to do there would be no need for us to exist, there would be no requirement for so many anti child grooming groups to be active.
It may come as an amazing surprise to some pampered politician but neither we nor those anti grooming groups like having to spend our time and our efforts tracking down, dealing with and exposing this type of trash.
If we left things to public officials then you’d get entire towns in which huge scandals were purposefully covered up by them. So how is it possible to trust them?
Only we as people can make the difference. While I don’t believe in touchy feely rehabilitation I do believe in the power of fear. For example, I think a good % of the online child groomers will be driven off the apps that they use by virtue of the FEAR of being exposed (often live) by one of the many anti grooming groups. I think its possible to keep individuals from repeating an act on extreme cruelty if they fear the counter reaction enough.
Fear should be confused with flat out criminal.
The anti grooming groups don’t work by committing huge crimes. They are lawful and they simply use truth and exposure against the target.
Some of them do go pretty near the line at times – but that’s what citizens need to do if you want to get things done.
We’re the same.
We basically use the truth and facts and expose them in such a way that the given individual isn’t allowed the usual free pass. We endeavour to give people half a chance of being informed as to who they might have living on their street. We created a whole database just for that purpose. An easy to use and one stop shop of cases.
This country is absolutely swarming with scum. Their numbers are vast and their rights are (too) many.
Every good man and women has to play their part in pushing back against that swarm and those who seek to protect and pander them.
We must become…. VERY intolerant.
