Oh, look, I made an ungrounded allegation and no one called me on it. I guess that means it's okay.
I'm just keeping things fair. Or trying to, anyway...
I said I was guessing, Aft. Guessing. Yes, a jump to a conclusion, and I'll be delighted to find out it was a one-time thing and the offender is
rehab-ready, if we ever learn the outcome.
I don't think you're a parent yet, so I'll let the allegation
that I made an "ungrounded allegation" just go.
No loving, healthy mother who isn't afraid herself would leave the boy there and allow this to occur.
If the guy were barricaded with
the son in a room behind a metal door, maybe. But, if she had access to her son, NO WAY.
I also don't think you have much experience dealing with domestic violence and terrorism. If one reads enough case studies, or works with enough
victims or perpetrators to get into their mindsets and thought sequences, one is able to discern a pattern. Behavioral science is real - there was
some reason this mother left the home WITHOUT HER SON. And it was not because the man is a kind, loving, balanced individual.
If it were me, and my son was being mutilated by a man, first that man would be knocked out cold - during which he'd see stars and blackness after
being hit with a baseball bat - ; then he'd wind up in police custody; and he would never, EVER see me or my son again unless he got adequate help.
Like I said above, if he had locked himself in a room with no entry, that would be different. But we don't know. Either way, she decided her best
option was to go get help.
Even if there was no phone in the house and I had
to leave to get help, still he'd have been unconscious with that box-cutter in his hands
before I left with my SON IN TOW. The man would be neutralized. Women who are mothers have an automatic response to violence:
GRAB THE KIDS AND RUN.
