To start on this topic, we must firstly think about how crime and violence spreads. It is quite easy and convenient to think that bad things are only done by bad people but then again, I believe that nobody is born evil. What causes the crime rate go higher then? Well, remember that in all the corners of the world we can see a similar pattern of violence spreading violence. In other words - people who are victims of abuse, especially if they are children, are more likely to become deliquents than kids from healthy environments.
This should already give you a good enough reason to think about how does the crime spread. Children are the most vulnerable of all, they are extremely susceptible to influence from the external sources like friends, parents, people who visit their parents, etc. That is precisely the reason why the children should be protected at any cost. The truth is that if we were able to eradicate all of the domestic abuse problems in just one generation, we would most likely end up with a huge drop in crime-rate a couple of years later when those kids would have grown up.
Violence sparks more violence and therefore leads to crime. Actually, it is not at all an innovative thing to say, the problem is that it is unimaginably hard to stop this cirle from spinning. However, there is one thing that we can do and that we should always remember - the best accomplice of crime is silence. We can never be idle, we can never be silent. If you see a person being abused, shout it out, violence's domain is shadow, let us shed some light on it!
