THE STRAIN IT PUTS ON A HEART PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY THE OFFENDER WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND IT TO THE FULLIEST. YOU DIDN’T ONLY HURT ME YOU HURT MY WORLD MEANING ANY1 WHO LOVES ME OR WHOM LOVED ME.I HAVE PANIC ATTACKS THINKING WHAT IF….

WHAT REALLY HURTS ME IS THE PAIN MY CHILD HAD TO FACE AT SCHOOL MALLS KIDS ARE CRUEL AN SHE DIDN’T HAVE THE ANSWERS AND HER MOTHER DID’NT EITHER. SO CAN YOU ANSWER WHY ME NO EXCUSES ONLY FACTS. WORDS CAN NEVER REALLY DESCRIDE THE AGONY YOU AND YOUR BEHAVIORS CAUSED A COMMITTEE.
MRS INNOCENT VICTIM
The Community Justice Center believes the key to unlocking the problems with our justice system is restoring control and voices to victims. A victim tends to get lost in the shuffle of police, lawyers, judges and court rooms. Their questions don’t get answered and their story becomes nothing but yesterday’s crime.
Offenders become nothing but criminals doing time on holiday. Most never take full responsibility for the damage they have done. They don’t get a chance to feel the victim’s pain and try to make amends, even if that is all they can do. The victim has the key to getting across to offenders. Offenders need to understand the extreme gravity of the harm they put upon the victim and the community.
A major part of the Community Justice Center (CJC) is elevating victims voices so they are heard all while restoring a clear sense of control back. Through CJC victims begin the healing process and offenders know true accountability while learning about the true harm they caused real individuals and communities because of their actions.
