Just one thing thank you. You have been amazing
.In this case there is very little to do with retribution. The family has always worked together despite significant trauma and significant issues with mental illness.. In emergency situations you can't weigh up all the pro and cons of whether it is feasible to call the police. You have to react. Not to react in times like these would lead to a conviction of neglect or a murder scene. What I suppose I would be campaigning for that in these kind of cases we take a holistic approach.even if the police has been called that instead of going down the prosecution route you are still able to able to have the option of working together towards mediation.
In the last case, that this family went through several years back before the recent case, mediation worked where police where looking for a conviction,. the vulnerable person often knows the situation intimately.
The frustrations the last time were -
You spend thousands and thousands of pounds into convicting dysfunctional families but you spend very little on the support they desperately want. Support with housing, finance queries, psychological help, mediation. For instance in this case, the mother wants help to protect herself and her children. She wasn't asking for a conviction. If the man is banned from the house that is fine but convicting him also convict herself and the children to execution as well. I'm not condoning crime here, some crimes will need law to keep things in check. I am merely suggesting we should look proactively towards mediation even after the police have been called. Little wonder two die every week in instances related to domestic violence. Pointless reaching out to the police if they are going to destroy you in the process. Likewise with forced adoption no point reaching out to a social worker when forced adoption is the policy, countries with forced adoption have been found to have higher rates of death and abuse.. England of course being one of them. So by the police taking a heavy handed approach they get some of the nasties locked up but the rest would rather take our chances. The floodgates of police enquiry have been opened here but I am passionate about campaigning for change, protecting the vulnerable rather than subjecting the vulnerable to policies and procedures that makes there fate worse than ever. In the last case the policy for risk assessments were changed because the family were passionate about the rights of the child who was suffering from a mental illness. Unless the vulnerable speak out nothing will change. i want to campaign in this case. I want to defend the needs of all concerned. Which way can I campaign for a more positive approach to hard core policing, if I went to court how could I best present a case that encompasses this? How could I get the police to listen to me, how best should i present my case. Who would be the best campaign groups to approach in this type of case? Thank you for your hard work It has been much appreciated.
