I was a cop for 15 years, during that time I was an officer, deputy sheriff, detective, SWAT operator, I did it all and I saw it all.
I got out in 2012, and could see that things were deteriorating very quickly, I actually ran for Sheriff in 2010 to expose corruption as I was a whistleblower starting in 2007.
Anyways I will get to my point; The justice system causes most of the crime, and I would tell my clients this who would complain about being repeated victims. I lived and worked in a rural yet high crime area in Western Washington. Property crime and violent crime was amongst the highest in the state.
What I noticed over the years is that society had been trained not to protect themselves, instead they were trained to hand that responsibility over to the government, in doing so government saw that there was a lot of money and power in "controlling crime". They found that crime is a business which needed to be managed and also a very powerful tool of control over law abiding citizens. Crime in itself is a huge economy for the criminal justice system empire and gives the government a huge amount of power over society as they have monopolized crime.
You see criminals are not afraid of the criminal justice system as it acts as a buffer between them, their criminal acts and the victims of said crimes. The system protects the criminals from the victims not the other way around as you might think. Criminals do not fear consequences from the "system" but they do fear the rare consequence administered by the victim.
My advice to victims of repeated crimes was to take matters into their own hands, I told them time and again that only their taking responsibility will make a criminal think twice because criminals fear a self empowered victim more than any agent of the criminal justice system or its consequences.
