So you're bringing everyone into this are you, can you not just leave the discussion between you and I ?
I am right-handed.
I don't subscribe to the hang 'em high without judge or jury philosophy.
Is it because I am really left-handed?
But seriously - this has nothing to do with political persuasion.
Unless you think everyone involved in Beheavoural Science is left-wing.
That hotbed of radical socialism the FBI employs over 35,000 people to study violent crime and those that commit them. In fact they now track animal abuse cases not because they are PC spouting lefties, but because there is a proven co-relation between abusing animals and violent crimes.
Commie central aka the RCC has produced reams of excuses for the child abusers in it's ranks - and protected many of them enabling them to continue their abuse.
This is beyond political divisions.
Don't be that person who cannot see beyond their own political prejudices and try and score tasteless points. It diminishes you.
Those you dismissed here as "lefties" are saying learn to prevent - can't learn if you don't try and understand. Can't understand if they've been hung high or the key thrown away.
