Pure "blaming the victim". This guy's more of an enabler with his position.
Big difference between Victim Blame and playing Devil's Advocate as columnists do. James was given a sentence averaging one year for every victim, identified or anonymous that he is on public record as having abused, even though the jail time really related to just Kennedy. Then served what, half that? If his reputed 98 other vics came forward en masse and at once it would have been much higher, those are the facts and I've no confidence that victims 3, 4 and Fleury's charges will result in a longer sentence this time round unless times have changed in Canada.
Offenders have 100 victims for a reason, every set of parents, if they are told, seems to say "not my kid" and there isn't even a report in some cases. Then we end up with Aaron Vargas on our hands at the end of a bunch of suicides and generally fucked-up lives. Steven Stayner made a statement, didn't live to see his kidnapper get life and die in jail, didn't have to be there as his report was on file for the next time his offender decided he wanted to do the same thing all over again after his let-off for the two kidnaps he carried out and his abuse of Stayner. All this whilst getting next to no therapeutic help to speak of.
I too made my police report after therapy, like my burglar's fingerprints which they have at the station, it makes zero difference at the time except for going through procedure and ticking a box on the healing trail (or for the burglar, insurance) but if either offender ever offends again, the police can get in touch and you bet your arse I'm going to court, that's what I want and what criminals deserve.
