“Using the truth about crime, to shrink the frontiers of crime.”
A legally-confidential, free to call, crime-advice-call centre: would be for potential victimizers (and/or their concerned families, friends, or community), who wish to confidentially access and openly discuss, with a trained Crime Adviser/Negotiator; the truth about an intended crime or wrongdoing (as opposed to the lie-filled fantasized versions).
A controversial, required Law change would be: Any Crime Advisor/Negotiator who is or was working for such a crime-advice-line, will have to be legally protected against being successfully prosecuted (in any criminal or civil court), for refusing to divulge any information has been revealed by any caller, during a crime advice-line session – no matter what the past or intended crime is - even if the caller’s disclosure included the identity of a past or potential future victim.
Some reasonings behind such a confidential crime-advice-line are:
1: Sometimes, the most telling thing that can be fitted in between an immovable desire and an unstoppable consequence - is a question mark. A legally-confidential, Q&A session with a trained Adviser/Negotiator can pose those telling questions.
2: At the centre of every crime or wrongdoing there lurks a lie; which becomes our cellmate from the moment we try to shut out the truth. Our prisons are overflowing with cases of mistaken-self-identity. Freedom comes from mistrusting the crime, rather than oneself.
3: The financial cost of running such a service will be worthwhile; by preventing the financial (and emotional) costs of crimes; which would have otherwise been directly and indirectly inflicted upon individuals, local communities and society.
For those who wish to further help in establishing such a service, the following tips are suggested:
1: Lobby, and keep lobbying, your local MP, Law making authorities, council, journalist and broadcasters.
2: Find or create your own lobbing group.
3: Do not give up.
P.S. ‘Hope you enjoy the view.’
