A Dutch court found a man guilty of sexually abusing 24 predominantly minor victims in the Gelderland village of Alem, but sentenced him to only three years in prison along with psychiatric treatment for his “condition”:
The 46-year-old man was arrested in July last year after an 11-year-old girl told her parents that something strange had happened during a sleepover at the house of her friend, B.’s daughter. She woke up in the middle of the night when she felt her underwear being moved aside. She saw B. take photos of her.
Investigation showed that the man had been doing this for years – a revelation that rocked Alem, a village with less than 600 residents. B. was arrested a few days later. The authorities initially suspected him of sexually abusing five girls between 2015 and 2018. In January the Public Prosecutor announced that there were many more victims, after a massive amount of child pornography was found on his computers.
A total of 24 girls were identified in the child pornography. Most of them were of primary school age. One victim is B.’s niece, who was 3-years-old at the time of the abuse. Most of the victims didn’t realize they were being photographed.
In total over 35 thousand images of child pornography were found on B.’s computers and data carriers. The man claims that there’s no more, but the Public Prosecutor doubts this. Just before his arrest, the man managed to destroy and dispose of multiple hard drives, the Prosecutor said.
Experts determined that B. has a pedophilic disorder and is not completely accountable for his actions.
The Public Prosecutor demanded five years in prison against the man. The court decided to give him a shorter sentences, with institutionalized psychiatric treatment. In order to prevent recurrence, it is important that the man receives long-term and intensive treatment, the court ruled. A shorter prison sentence means that the treatment can start sooner. The court also ordered the man to pay compensation to 15 of his victims. The amounts range between 750 and 6,200 euros.
B. confessed to some of his crimes. He expressed regret and feels that he must pay for what he has done, he told the court. He agreed that he needs treatment and said he is willing to cooperate, according to the newspaper.
How does a pedophile have a mental disorder any more than a rapist or a murderer? It’s a disorder when it’s convenient for the court to rationalize giving yet another pedophile a light sentence. After all, how will they ever know if their psychiatric treatment is successful if they don’t release the pedophile back into society and see if he’s cured?
The Dutch don’t believe it’s necessary to ban the possession of a “how-to” manual to help pedophiles lure and abuse children, so it is completely consistent that they don’t believe pedophiles are responsible for their own actions. After all, pedophiles have an extremely high rate of recidivism, which is apparently proof that the just can’t help themselves, so why bother punishing them?
This pedophile is lucky he’s lives in such a liberal atheistic country that protects its pedophiles instead of Christian Poland which recently doubled the prison time for each count of pedophilia. For those 24 kids he molested, he’d be spending the next 500 years in prison if he were in Poland with a zero chance of ever harming another child.
Kindly see Matthew 5:17…
The Law hasnt changed.
Looks like we will agree to disagree on this one. The martyrs were martyrred mostly by governments and NGOs if you will and they were mostly disarmed. Even then, it looks like many misunderstood Romans 13 and did what government demanded when it was in clear violation of Gods Law.
Remember too…the opposition gets to write history – we dont know much of what actually happened. There may well have been , and probably were, numerous incidents as you question, and successful ones, but official histories conveniently lack them. “lawlessness makes the kings heart grow glad” – the corollary is true also; i.e. righteousness – especially directed at corrupt leaders – POs the king…
The insidence of The Garden given is a unique point in time; certainly Jesus told them to ‘stand down’ if you will to make a point – mainly to the Apostles I might hazzard a guess – that His was not [only] an earthly kingdom and it would not be formed or maintained by force. PLUS, He had to go thru the Crucifixion to redeem His people. Had he risen up in arms, (((they))) could have claimed He was murdered because He attacked them / tried to overthrow the government / etc ad nauseum. This way, His blood is upon them , their children and their childrens children…
The directive to seek justice is as old as mankind – real mankind – and is codified over and over again. God does not change, nor do His Laws. [we’re talking ‘capital L’ laws here, not the rites and sacrificial laws that WERE ‘nailed to the cross’] Justice is to be sought in our everyday lives. Yes, at the time of His return, He will have us bring them to His feet and slay those who reject him and work against Him and His people undoubtedly. But while we may lack the manpower and the will as a people to rise up en masse and straighten things out now as in the past, we can work for justice [and Truth] individually in our own spheres of operation / influence . Not only is it the right thing to do and sanctified by our Creator, but will [hopefully] snowball and lead to national repentance and societal change. At minimum, methinks He would be pleased – and certainly not condemn us -that we sought to do and enforce His Word.
I understand your point of view, and agree. However, it is only applicable with an actual Christian society. Unless you live in an Amish community or some similar Christian commune, there is no white society on earth that is ruled by God’s law, let alone wholly by white people. We cannot enforce God’s law where it is not accepted. We cannot judge (by God’s law) lest we be judged (by the Talmud). Being a Christian, raising a Christian family, and teaching others Christianity IS God’s justice now. We had the chance to enforce His will by force, but refused to do it. Now our only recourse is separation from this God-less world – sanctification. Within that, can we expect God’s justice to prevail, but no where else until He returns to subject all 🙂
P.S. I guess what we consider justifiable use of force will depend on our own situation, and our own faith…ammo up indeed!
No wonder so many Jews have mental problems….many of them have been victimized by jewish sexual predators, and rarely is justice ever served. At least many Catholic kids have seen their abusers punished–not enough, but still many at this point…..
Any decent country would make SURE he never had the opportunity to do that – or anything else – again.
Even if the ‘court system’ won’t do anything, where are the fathers?!?!? Some clown do that to my kid and his face would end up on a milk carton… no ifs ands or buts.
While I echo the sentiment, such stories of ‘justifiable’ revenge only make for a ‘good’ Hollyjew flick. Please remember – vengeance is God’s, and His alone. If such a heinous crime were to be perpetrated against our children 1) they would not be the first, and 2) they would not be the last – though I would pray for that to be so. One of the lessons we are to learn concerning such things is: In a proper Christian home, your children would be much better protected, and you and your children would be much more aware!
must respectfully disagree my brother; see not only the story of Abram rescuing Lot and his clan, but Numbers 35:19, Exodus 21:14 and Deuteronomy 19 :12 aand 13. There is a clear concept in the Bible of family members exacting vengeance against perpetrators, especially in capital crimes. Rape/molestation of a child is certainly such an offence.
Furthermore, as NO civil jurisdiction is doing its job and punishing these – or any other – crimes, it does and will fall back on us, if ANY justice is to be served. The Lord loves Justice…
You are correct of course that we, as parents, kin and friends, must do a better job of protecting our loved ones from vermin like this as well as warning them against such. teach them to stay out of situations conducive to problems. regrettably, in these times, it does mean a certain amount of ‘social isolation’ , and even then, there are so many sickos out there that random attacks occur. This is why we need Men to rectify the situation and make it too dangerous for the malefactors to continue to ply their craft.
Those stories you quoted clearly demonstrate our ability to ‘exact vengeange’ – at a time when God expected us to. The Old Testament tells us of a time when not only were our societies homogenous, but they were ruled by various forms of God’s law. But just as the time of Judges is over, and the Works of the law are past, so is our ability to take vengeance on our enemies. Self defense is our only recourse to violence. When Christ told the apostles, “If you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one,” it can be construed as a general directive to arm yourself for war, but there is a deeper lesson to be learned…
Christ had the apostles arm themselves so that during the limited skirmish that occurred when Christ was betrayed, He could order the apostles to cease and desist, as well as heal an enemy combatant, in order to set the precedent for our Christian attitude. Did Christianity rise from violent overthrow? Of course not. Where are all the stories of Christian vengeance during the time of the martyrs?
The Crusades were the last great race wars, and now that we have allowed ourselves to amalgamate with the enemy, resultant in them ruling over us, our directive from Christ as per the Revelation, is to sanctify ourselves – not seek the justice that cannot exist now, but only when Christ returns – and by sanctifying ourselves, we prove we are worthy to help Him deliver that justice when He returns!
