Paedophilia is defined as “a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescents experience a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children” Those who act on these urges commit a crime which carries a custodial sentence. Quite rightly, our society has determined that Paedophiles are a menace to young defenceless children.
But things are a-changing. The Telegraph reports that;
“Police have been told by the government that paedophiles caught with indecent child abuse images can receive conditional cautions instead of jail as police struggle to cope with an explosion of cases. Amid a 700 per cent rise in cases referred to police, the Ministry of Justice said some low-risk offenders could be given cautions with tough conditions aimed at rehabilitation”
We can dismiss the “tough conditions aimed at rehabilitation” caveat as just a little convenient verbal camouflage to cover the dreadful fact that this allegedly Conservative government is betraying our children in the most egregious manner. If Paedophiles are caught with indecent child abuse images, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that their intent may be very dangerous. If they act on such impulses, that is a crime. If they view such illegal images, that is a crime. Yet Government seeks to treat this as just a minor (excuse the pun) matter worth little more than a slap on the wrists.
It’s also worth considering the view of Prosecutor Caldecott in the recent Tommy Robinson trial. He was deeply concerned that Robinson had the temerity of filming some of those convicted of child sexual abuse “at a time of high anxiety for them”. Now given that these child rapists had been found guilty of the most horrible acts of paedophilia, the question is why would our legal authorities put their feelings before that of their victims?
Is this also part of the softening up approach, the normalisation of Paedophilia?
There is a disturbing background to this and we can see in this article from 2016.
Paedophilia is a “sexual orientation” like being straight or gay, according to a criminal psychologist.
In May 2015, research from the National Crime Agency suggested 250,000 men in the UK could be considered “true paedophiles” – adults who are attracted to pre-pubescent girls less than 12 years old. Talking to The Independent in the wake of the research, one psychologist working said they should be treated as victims rather than offenders.
So there we have it. There is a movement afoot to normalise paedophilia – to make it seem like just another choice. And to hell with the young innocent victims of these predatory degenerates.
Suffer little children seems to be an aspiration for some in 2019 and our Government seems complicit in bringing this about.
