I seem to have a problem with compassion in a sense that when i hear a story about someone being raped, killed or tortured in some way i feel compassion for the victim and then begin to really hate the person who inflicted it
Ive tried directing compassion for the person who is doing the raping etc but i just cant get past hating them
In a sense my compassion for the victim has lead me to hate the perpetrator
Does anyone have any helpful advice on how to sort this out?
Thanks in advance

Not that I know of.
Sometimes I see the odd chapter of the Visuddhimagga online, as translated from Pali (possibly by someone related to the "Dhamma Study Group"?), but can't seem to find it (let alone the section on metta) online.
