HOW TO GET JUSTICE FROM A MAD MAN!


Mad men are walking free! Murderers and criminals on the loose because they are deemed Insane or abnormal. Is there a way to get justice from a man deemed insane?

But what is Normal? Should a crime committed by a normal person have different punishment than that committed by an insane man?

          "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
                        - Martin Luther -

As Martin Luther put it, Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  So it is justifiable to get justice for a crime committed by an insane man?

Yes there is! I went and asked some inside sources who have knowledge on Law (particularly Thailand).

If you have been victimized by an "insane" man; Follow some of these tips as you seek legal help;

  • Crazy by law? When bringing up a case against an 'insane' man. You should know whether the person is crazy by law. Does this insane person have a document that certifies them medically insane?
  • Find if this insane person has any known relatives who can represent him before the law.
  • Are there any known people the insane has abused before? See if you can get in touch with them to be witness to the insane's man behavior.
  • Were there any eye witnesses at the place where the abuse took place?
  • What time did the abuse take place and at what place?
  • When reporting your case, recreate the event accurately without altering or hiding any details because it may cost your case if discovered.
  • Present documents, either photos, hospital document stating the damage caused, a police report and the like as proof that the abuse took place.
  • Rally up supporters who will stand with you each step of the way.
  • Do not be afraid to bring up your case and fight for it till you get your full compensation and the 'insane' man is punished for his offence.
  • Most importantly, get a good lawyer who will care for you and not want to exploit you out of your money. It may help to be referred to a lawyer by friends or family.

PORNOGRAPHY THE SILENT KILLER

"Pornography: Beware of it! There is much talk about addiction which have destructive results: physical, psychological, spiritual and social. Beware of it! I believe you love yourselves."
                                                    sfg fan
          

There is much talk about pornography and how it destroys lives and when one of our Facebook Fans posted the above message I saw it was time to talk about this addiction that secretly plagues  so many especially that it is almost free in these modern times of fast changing technology.

Let's first find out the reasons why people watch porn:

  • It is free. Yes, most of it is just a click away on the internet. Free is good right? hmmm food for thought.
  • When they want to release their sexual tension through masturbation. Most Porn is usually abandoned after masturbation.
  • It helps satisfy a humans physiological need for sex. It is wrong to enter a relationship just in order to have sex so people watch porn as an alternative. But Porn is not a good solution either, its best to abstain until you find yourself in a good relationship.
  • It feels really good in the moment, though many report feelings of regret or disgust shortly afterward.
  • Besides it being free, it is everywhere. Modern media also helps in promoting porn in a way.

So why Porn is almost everywhere especially that it causes addiction and moral decay? Why do people keep creating pornographic content? This could be because; 

  • People who post pornography feel their self esteem boosted when they post their porn videos on the internet. I can imagine this is different for those who become celebrities.
  • It satisfies their sexual desires, ever heard of a nymphomaniac
  • It is a business. Not so good but pornography is how some people illegally make money out of your desires. This is a bad business because they do promote violence, unnatural sexual behavior, inhumane treatment of their stars and some even use children. The worst crime of all time.
  • It is a way of getting fame, in that field of course.
  • They create porn because they can. Man is indeed a crafty creature.

Here are some reasons why porn is not good;
  • By watching you are supporting an illegal industry that is enslaving people and abusing children. It is a deeply rooted evil scheme. Even if you watch 'good' porn or porn you deem acceptable, the filthy industry is hiding behind the so-called good!
  • It is addictive. Addiction is a negative term all together.
  • It encourages moral decay. Morality has been discarded and purity in life is slowly being lost.
  • It breaks relationships.
  • Some research say it could be a disorder.

If you are fighting Porn, there are many people to back you up. The journey may not be easy and you will relapse sometimes but keep up the good fight. 

Follow these tips on how to Stop Watching Porn!

HOW TO BE SAFE AT SOCIAL GATHERINGS



Soo, you are a Party Rocker? Party Shy? Concert goer? Hmm I love concerts. Party maker / breaker? haha, anyway events are usually nice to attend and we must ensure that we enjoy them from start till the end. Are you having a Night out Fun with friends or something like it? Hmm Sounds interesting but be sure you put your safety first belt on as you go enjoy.  

To make sure you are safe at a social gathering:      

  • Prepare in advance, for instance you can check who will be at the gathering and depending on the gathering  if liquor will be served, what time the it will be and how long the gathering will go on.
  • Know if their will be security and if it is a small social gathering probably not, so be sure what the main purpose of the gathering will be.
  • Know who is the patron of the social gathering, what is their personality and are they able to maintain control?
  • Is the event within good travelling distance to where you live? If not, are you certain of your transportation and driver?
  • Be cautious of what you eat at the gathering in order not to be drugged or suffer food poisoning.. Yiiikkkes, sounds bad but it does happen.
  • If their is alcohol involved at the meeting please just have enough to remain sober because it is almost impossible to control your situation in a drunken state as you may also end up doing something you did not want.
  • Whatever function you are going to, be fully aware of what will happen and think about other possible mishaps that could take place. Be ready for anything.
  • Avoid drugs before, during or after the gathering. Drugs are not good for your health anyway. I mean the   bad drugs not the doctors prescription.
  • Avoid places that are secluded and likely possible places to indulge in unwanted sexual behaviour.
  • Do not be afraid to Say NO!  if you find yourself in an inappropriate or uncomfortable situation.
  • Follow your gut and trust your instincts.
  • Relax and enjoy your party.

How to Tell If a Child is being or has been Abused

Information collected and written by Adedayo Emmanuel via LinkedIn

Hello there, I came across very useful data on signs that a child is undergoing or has undergone sexual abuse. We need to care regardless of whether we know the child or not because in every child there is a future. Let care for our generations, gone and to come. Seek help if you notice signs that a child is undergoing sexual abuse. Keeping silent makes you an enemy.

Indicators of Child Sexual Abuse

Do you know that it is possible for you to know that your child is been abused sexually? Do you also know that it is possible for you as parent or guardian to detect the possibility of your child being abused?The onus greatly lie on parents, guardians and teachers or mentors to detect the possibility of this evil occurrence and give that child the ability, right and strength to make the right decision. The reason being that, "MOST OF THE TIME, YOU WILL NOT BE THERE WHEN THE ACT TAKES PLACE". Let me itemize some of the behavioral/emotional indicators:

Sexual

• Over attention to adults of a particular sex.
• Displaying unusual interest in the genitals of others.
• Acting out adult sexual behavior with adults, dolls or other children.
• Open displays of sexuality, for example, repeated public masturbation.
• Precocious knowledge of sexual matters.
• Promiscuity, repetitious sexually precocious behavior.

• Displaying aggressive behavior.
• Not getting on well with peers.
• Poor peer relationships, family and/or child appear socially isolated.
• Reluctance to undress, for example, for school sporting functions.
• Excessive bathing.
• Inappropriate displays of affection between child and parent (usually father) that appear lover-like rather than parent-like (father may be excessively overprotective towards daughter, restrict her social activities or inquisitive of her sexuality).


General
• Sudden changes in mood or behavior.• Difficulty sleeping, nightmares.• Regressed behavior, bed wetting, separation anxiety, insecurity.• Change in eating patterns including preoccupation with food.• Lack of trust in familiar adults, fear of strangers, fear of men.• Lack of appropriate role boundaries in family, child fulfills parental role.• Acting out behavior, aggression, lying, stealing, unexplained running away, drug or alcohol abuse, suicide attempts.• Withdrawn behavior• passivity• excessive compliance• mood swings or depression• Learning problems at school, loss of concentration, unexplained drop in school performance.
