What is the first thing a Jew must do in case of sexual child abuse? Call the cops! Of course.
But as a Jew who believes that the police should not exist in their current, public form, this doesn’t inspire enthusiasm. How are the police doing in all other areas…? The only reason to use their services is that the only choice is between that and nothing. If, and when, competing, private security firms and courts are decriminalized and unhampered, government excesses and shortcomings in this area become unforgivable.
- Undue process.
- Arbitrary age of consent.
- Prisons (with all that entails: rape, welfare, slave labor, etc.).
- Moral hazard.
- Legal malum prohibitum add-ons and prosecution deals.
- Child Protective Services
- Feminist bias.
So going to the police will not always be the right move, and, even in the present time, perhaps not in every country on the globe. If you can wrangle something other than sterilization and\or welfare until parole, this might be the answer.
