May 16, 2013

CHILD ABUSE IN THE UNITED STATES – HORRIFIC STATISTICS

When you think or hear of child abuse ,most pass comments and say that it is wrong and how justice needs to be served ,however most dont let the abuse of a child that they dont know affect there life.But by ignoring the fact that child abuse has a horrific affect not
only on the abused child but statistically in the future for that child as it becomes a juvenile and a adult ,in our society as a whole.I personally think that the time has really come when action needs to be taken and voices need to be made louder so that all society lives in a safer world ,and that the actions of a child abuser does not come back to haunt anyone of us in our lives in the future

Here are some Horrifying statistics that most dont know but should

    That is some very devastating stats.

    • Sadly yes they are and the worst bit is that these are the
      statistics that we know of based on the reports made from
      victims of abuse.However this does not include all the cases
      that are unreported and sometimes never ever reported.

      So these are the basic statistics and if the real figures were
      actually known we would all be horrifically shocked
