Like I said in my post about the murder of Naomi Smith
I am very sad about the deaths of these women and girls and the men who carried out those awful crimes should be strung up in my book
Most of the crime programmes involve men committing murder or men doing other criminal things and that causes a big problem.
You could count on one hand the number of programmes that involve women killing men or doing other criminal activity but there are hundreds of programmes involving men harming women or doing criminal things.
Even on the programmes that document women or girls being killed, it is generally the mother and sisters who are interviewed, as sadly that has a greater impact than interviewing brothers or fathers. And if a woman cries on film, all the better. I am sorry to sound callous but that is the nature of the beast when you start talking about “crime entertainment“.
What this gross imbalance does is to reinforce the fact that men are really bad and women are good or not so bad. As I mentioned in a previous post, even the justice minister said that all women prisons should be shut.
Unless you were born under a rock, we all know that women are just as capable of ANY crime as men are, whether murder, assault or any other crime.
Furthermore, women are very fantastic actresses. They will lie through their teeth, cry at a moment’s notice and blame anyone else apart from themselves. This is something that the Police just do not get
But as soon as a woman turns on the tears, the Police officer of whatever country instantly believes anything that a woman will say, even if she is lying through her teeth.
For a man, it is a case of guilty until proven innocent, whereas
For a woman, it is a case of innocent until proven guilty
That is why when a man enters a court, for say sex abuse allegations, most if not all of the jury decide that he is guilty before a word is spoken.
But, if a woman is on trial, she will initially get the benefit of the doubt and the jurors will think “how could a woman possibly do that?“. It is only if the evidence is overwhelming will the jury find that woman guilty.
That reinforcement of views goes even further, to when the sentence is handed out. For exactly the same crime, a woman will generally get a lighter sentence; the statistics speak for themselves.
Even before you actually watch a crime programme, the channel has already got you into the “right” (or should I say wrong) mindset with their trailers.
Just take a look at these
Certainly the last two seem innocent enough but a man throwing a bag into the canal suggests there is a dead female body in the bag and the ladies shoe suggests that she has been killed by a man.
What all of this does is to continually build up a picture in one’s subconscious and we then all believe that men have to be watched like a hawk and women can be implicitly trusted.
But from my own experiences, I have learned that few women can be trusted; yes, it is a sad statement to make.
Women tend to target rich men so that they can “nest” and then rip those men off in a divorce (first wife) or, during an argument, they pull a 12 inch kitchen knife out of a drawer and threaten you with it and then call the police before then putting away the knife before they arrive (second wife). And of course a daughter accusing her father of sexual abuse and actual bodily harm, for money, treats and favours (yes, my own daughter)
What all of this does is to not only skew Joe Public’s attitudes but also those of the Police. I have illustrated many times as to how the police treat men versus women. They will purposely agitate a man so that he flips, giving the police the excuse for many of them to haul a man to the ground and then 5 or more just jump on him whereas the police will treat a woman with kid gloves, not throw them to the floor and actually treat them with some respect.
Why do you think that advertisers spread as many women and girls across their screens as possible; that is until I spot it, report it on my blog and only then do they change them
And as to Joe Public’s reaction? If there is a missing woman or girl, a whole village will come out to help in the search, time after time (sadly) again but if it is a man or a boy, little effort is made. Just take poor James Bulger. No one came out searching for him, just the Police.
It is sad to say that “simple” example says it all
And to finish, why do you think that Cressida Dick is head of the Metropolitan Police. I am not suggesting that she is not experienced, someone of that level is bound to be but the men that were up against her had no chance. Whoever the group of people who decided on her were, they wanted a woman as the Met are very high profile and it was more “PC” to give her the job. Why do you think that most of the companies’ media representatives are women?
