Hmm, Dr Stosny, you've not been a victim of serious crime, domestic abuse, institutional prejudice, and clinical neglect nor had to deal with all the fall out that goes along with each of these...you've not had just about everything you worked for in your whole life robbed from you have you? One kind of feels entitled to some gracefully given support, compensation and restitution in those circumstances. Subject to such, it would be far easier to offer compassion if the community and its agencies showed compassion in the face of violent criminal activities -or at least honesty about its lack of care. Victim status is about far far more than you've indicated here. Thus I find your piece ill-informed and really rather another flavour of make the victim responsible (aka blame the victim).
