What I think and know is that violence, raging is not the answer to healing these wounds
I fully agree. If the courts, the church leaders, the Boy Scout leadership, the YMCA leaders, the orphanages, etc would deal
with offenders, we would not have a problem. Furthermore, I never consider any of this to be served on a platter of rage. "Rage" is your interpretation of something...I don't know: action? determination? completion? But no justice can be served with rage.
I NEVER think violence
is a replacement for, or substitute of the justice system.
I'll say that again as I believe its important and you may thing me a vigilante mentality.I NEVER think violence is a replacement for, or substitute of the justice system.
Rather, when the courts and the souls who drive them are corrupt or incompetent, justice must Still be served.

Children's lives and shredded souls are significant. They are significant enough to attract any level of justice and penalty. Child protection is significant enough to find extra-judicial, or super-judicial solutions to a failed, corrupt, or disinterested court.
Massachusetts is rampant with trial-level judges who let first time offenders walk out the front door of the courthouse once found guilty. Some of the cases are physically brutal rapes. One judge (in the 1990s) put a cross-dressing gay man out on the lose after pulling a 14-yo boy into bushes and raping the shnoz outta him. The judge thought it more "appropriate
" to be "sensitive to the special circumstances of the offender."
The boy had physical damage and of course is likely dug-in to our world of psycho-shit.
I find that sort of injustice fully unacceptable for any society...even Warsaw children. The men of Warsaw are welcome to stand up any time now.
