Castration is not enough for some…

I just couldn’t believe how people can descend to these kind of depths:

إرجاء قضية المتهم بالاعتداء على عرض ابنته القاصر

أرجأت المحكمة الكبرى الجنائية قضية بحريني متهم بالاعتداء على عرض ابنته القاصر والبالغة 13 عاماً حتى 21 سبتمبر/ أيلول.
وكانت زوجة المتهم تقدمت ببلاغ ضد زوجها بأنه اعتدى على عرض ابنتهما جنسيّاً، في حين أكدت المجني عليها (13 عاماً) أنها ومنذ شهر كان والدها يتصل بها عندما يكون في العمل مساءً وطلب منها ذات يوم عدم مناداته بـ»بابا» بل مناداته بـ «حبيبي»، كما كان يطلب منها النوم معها في غرفتها، إلا أنها لم تكن تعرف قصد والدها، وكان والدها قد تمادى في اتصالاته فطلبت منه التوقف عن مضايقتها، وأمر قاضي تجديد الحبس حبس أب لمدة 45 يوماً بعدما تم توجيه تهمة الاعتداء على عرض ابنته القاصر (13 عاماً).
وفي أحد الأيام كانت تستحم فتفاجأت بدخول والدها عليها وهي عارية وقام بتصويرها في دورة المياه، وفي اليوم التالي قام بالدخول عليها في غرفة نومها وحاول خلع بنطالها، إلا أنها منعته، وفي أحد الأيام أعاد كرته وتمكن من فتح بنطالها وقام بتحسس أماكن العفة في جسدها، كما كان يقوم بحضنها بطريقة غريبة عند مشاهدتها.
وأضافت المجني عليها أن والدها كان يهددها بإخبار والدتها ويهددها بالضرب، كما قام والدها بتصويرها وهي عارية بعدما قام برفع قميصها عند نومها.
ولفتت المجني عليها إلى أن والدها كان يعرض عليها ممارسة الجنس، وفي أحد الأيام قام بوضع قناة إباحية لها وقت جلوسها في صالة المنزل، كما قام بنزع قميصه أمامها.
وأفادت المجني عليها بأنها كانت تمنعه وتغضب على والدها الذي لم يكترث وعندما شعرت بتمادي والدها قامت بإبلاغ والدتها التي تقدمت ببلاغ إلى مركز الشرطة.

My translation:

The High Criminal Court deferred the case of a Bahraini man accused of assaulting his 13-year-old daughter to 21 September.

The accused’s wife filed a complaint against her husband as he attacked their daughter sexually, while the 13-year-old victim confirmed that a month before the complaint, her father kept telephoning her during his night shift and asked her not to call him “dad” but “lover”, and asked to sleep in her room. Something that she did not understand initially due to her innocence. The father persisted in his telephone calls which prompted the child to ask him to cease harassment, the judge ordered the renewal of solitary confinement father for 45 days after he was charged with assault to the daughter’s honour.

The girl was shocked one day by him barging into the bathroom and filming her while she was showering. This incident was followed up the next day by him entering her room and attempting to remove her clothes but she resisted. He again attempted to remove her clothes on another day and was successful in touching her private parts. He had also hugged her inappropriately on several occasions.

The victim stated that her father threatened to tell her mother and to also beat her. He had photographed her naked during her sleep by lifting her dress.

The father offered to have sex with the victim and that he exhibited a pornographic film to her when she was in the hall at home and had removed his clothes in front of her.

The girl continuously fought off her father’s advances and got angry with him on several occasions, but he was not deterred, which finally prompted her to tell her mother about the incidents who in turn lodged a complaint at the police station.

I don’t particularly care about the so called “father” and I hope he rots in jail. But knowing how the system works here, he’ll be walking free to assault and harass others in a very short time indeed. What I do care about is the daughter who should immediately be removed from that “home” and put in care.

This is not the first, and sadly won’t be the last of these kind of cases. All the local papers carry such news on a daily basis and the trend is increasing. I’m not sure if they’re just reporting these now as opposed to the past, but at least if we know of such cases, then we can – hopefully – be intelligent enough to seek workable solutions. It’s quite evident that the frequency and repetitive nature of these crimes – especially against minors – that the solutions in place now are completely impotent and need a substantial overhaul.

The government should have a task force in place with enough power to intervene and rescue children from predators. They should also have the power to remove affected children from such homes and put them in care, at least until the situation is fully investigated and the justice system has had its say. Carrying on as we are will just continue to exasperate the situation and allow monsters to walk amongst us with impunity.

As to the pedophiles and sex predators, I think that castration is really too good for them, though I’d settle for chopping their danglies off, I think putting them in prison and throwing away the key – literally – is probably the most appropriate way to go, with no recourse ever be given to them to get away with their crimes by marrying the poor person they’ve attacked, or even if the family or the victim drop the case against them, then a criminal prosecution must be allowed to go ahead in the interest of the public.

    Sad to see that those problems seem to exist everywhere… and aren’t taken enough seriously, everywhere

    It is a sad day when the law will casually turn a blind eye to the ‘dad’ and he walks free. I guess its more a reflection of us as a society that we fail to take action against such horrendous crimes… Paedophiles, rapists and wife beaters should be categorically locked up for the rest of their miserable lives. And more importantly, I think it is time that we as a society pull our heads out of the sand. How many more young lives need to be destroyed before we awaken our collective consciousness?

    P.S: How are the kittens?

    I suspect (like you seem to) that the increase is more in the reporting than in the pedophilia.

    Does Bahrain have any laws similar to the statutory rape laws in the US? If so, maybe they could be brought into play for a bit more leverage against the ‘father’.

    Where are the honor killings when you need ’em? Instead of burying the victims in holes in the desert, how about burying the predators?

    This is too nasty to believe. Is he a stepfather or something? I’m not trying to defend him. Jeez, if he was executed tomorrow I think I would feel relief – and I’m not a supporter of the death penalty.

    I’m just trying to understand why a biological father would behave as he did, without feeling any guilt and as if he will suffer no consequences. Is there a mental problem? Has there been a mental deterioration? Does he eat aluminium, mercury and sodium fluoride instead of breakfast cereal? Has he had some kind of as-yet undetected cerebral aneurism? There must be something like that. It’s so hard to believe in the existence of pure evil, you know? What an absolute piece of shit he is to behave in this manner.
