When I first started to teach the Police, it was a well known fact that muggers hardly ever actually used the weapons they threatened the victim with.
Once the victim gave up their possessions – the muggers simply ran off and that was the end of it.
Although shaken and extremely worried about the incident, the victim was rarely, if ever, actually injured.
Nowadays, it is completely different.
Victims are routinely violently assaulted regardless of how easily they capitulate to the demands of the criminal scum.
We are advised by the Authorities to not fight back, not to escalate the situation, in case it becomes a violent mugging.
Unfortunately, it becomes violent anyway.
The scumbags are stabbing, shooting, spraying acid on their victims BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER they have robbed them.
The criminals know and understand that the easiest victim is the one that is incapable of fighting back – so why not just stab them first and then rob them.
This increasingly violent trend is on a worrying upwards spiral, with no end in sight.
We often hear reports on the News about Knife Crime epidemics, and they always occur just before yet another useless Knife Amnesty.
The News are so fast to show how many illegal weapons have been handed, how much safer our streets are, now that the nice little scumbag criminals have decided to hand over their weapons!
Gimme a break… do you know WHY they hand them in during an AMNESTY?
Because it is an AMNESTY – They will not be convicted for the crimes they committed with those weapons.
Talk about a ”get out of jail free card”!
I can assure you, this really is the tip of that iceberg for what the scum really get away with.
Meanwhile, the victims get nothing.
Many victims are now so traumatised and scared of the repercussions from Criminal scum, that they simply do not report the offence…. this is especially true for victims of sexual assault.
Can you imagine how you would feel, to see your loved ones in this state? Assaulted, petrified and scarred for life, whilst the scum that did it carry on their merry way, without a care in the World.
And if they do get prosecuted – the sentance is so lenient it beggars belief.
10 years becomes 3 years served in a heartbeat!
Immediately they are getting one third off for parole, then another one third for good behaviour, plus a bit extra if they go on a course to make them better – poor little things.
Of course a sex attacker is on good behaviour in prison – there are no victim types in Prison!
A common thief is surrounded by the temptation to steal, every single day in Prison – his victim type is anyone with anything worth stealing and selling.
A sex attacker has no victim type – and for some inexplicable reason they are rewarded with time off for good behaviour.
Meanwhile – the Victim in this, gets nothing – No support, no help….nothing!
They just sit and worry for their lives when the criminal gets back out to take their revenge.
