9th AUGUST NATIONAL WOMENS DAY
Every year when this date arrives the country, if not the entire world, goes into a state of Catatonia and only wake up some days later to discover the libations to their semi-gods has come to an end. 9th august in any year, still has its lethal dose of murder, rape and crime aimed at the fairer sex and after much ado, talking, threatening and warning the male population, The wrath and ire will still be felt despite the pomp and ceremony displayed by the powers who are: Governments and associated bodies doing their best to be seen and not judged. This separation of gender has and will, in all probability, not amount to much considering the toll which will be placed upon the shoulders of the fairer sex once the fete atmosphere has run its course.
This crime against women and in many cases, children, cannot be tolerated forever. While statistics are hard to come by it is still astronomically too high. It seems that, of lately, young children are targeted by adults in their, the adult’s quest for sexual satisfaction and other perverse desires.
Facebook and similar social games have become favourite venues for this perverted sexual activity plus the intimidator effect it has on young children. A pervert can hardly feel the damage he is doing to a young child, or, realise he may be damaging that child for the rest of His/her life forever. In fact some of these perverts actually claim they are acting in the child’s own interest.
In many cases the child is contacted by telephone and threatened should he/she inform his/her parents. In one case the child was threatened that her parents would be harmed should she, the child, report the phone calls which may be up to 8 calls in a day. My solution is to have the telephone number changed and the case reported to the police. What has become apparent is that the criminal uses a phone that does not register a telephone number on the receiver end so it becomes almost impossible for a trace to be placed on the line. Another method of traumatising a young teenager is to resort to the Face book of the victim with the usual use of a false name. Often the hacker may have his own Face book and it is possible to have it shut down almost immediately should he/she be caught in the act. Just a note entered on the face book stipulating the user and the offence.
