A couple of days ago I heard about a disturbing story on the news. This was a story about a former UFC fighter, Cain Velasquez in California. Cain learned that a repulsive man had molested one of his young relatives 100 times at this child’s daycare, which was owned by this person’s mother. The man that “allegedly” molested Cain’s young relative was released from custody and against the DA’s order without bail, only being forced to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet and remain 100 yards from children under the age of 14. He claims he was on his way to get his electronic monitoring bracelet when Cain found him.
Consumed with nothing but rage, Cain engaged in a high-speed chase following the person that “allegedly” molested his young relative and shot a handgun into the vehicle. Two of Cain’s shots hit two individuals that were in the vehicle, none of which were life-threatening or the man who allegedly molested his young relative.
Unfortunately, shortly after the incident took place, Cain was arrested during a traffic stop. He is being charged with attempted murder, shooting at an occupied motor vehicle, three counts of assault with a firm arm, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, willfully discharging a firearm from a vehicle and carrying a loaded firearm with intent to commit a felony.
What do you think about this story? I do not think people understand the lifelong effects molestation causes. Of course, children are resilient and mostly do not understand what happened to them, but this type of abuse will live within them their entire life. Children are innocent and trust people they know and sadly it is the people the children know that may take advantage of them. The story I have discussed briefly shows the children knew who their abuser was, but at least they were able to confide in someone and get the help they needed.
I am going to be honest with y’all, I do not think Cain did anything wrong and should not be in prison. Any deplorable man that thinks putting their hands on a child is normal needs to be shown their ways are VERY wrong and should be punished! No man or woman should get away with harming an innocent child and I almost do not think prison is good enough for them. I understand some of you reading this will disagree with me and think that Cain is where he should be because we are all entitled to our opinion.
I think I have shown how I feel about this topic and honestly think we should all do what we can to protect children. This subject does hit a nerve with me and enrages me more than anything else ever could. I know I have voiced my opinions about politics and the vaccine, but the two of those combined will not come close to causing my blood to boil as much. I remember working in a children’s hospital years ago and have seen children that were victims of abuse. Abuse of any kind stays with a person and can haunt them for the rest of their lives.
Thank you for visiting my site today. I know this post is different from ones I have done before, but when I saw this story, it caused me to feel something deep within my soul and I could not even write about it immediately. I do want the chance to read your thoughts on this and I will respond as soon as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
