We can all agree that child safety is paramount yet I keep reading articles whereby children and babies have been harmed and the perpetrators have got away with a slap on the wrist.

Two examples of what I have read this morning (13th June 2019):

These cases are just two of many. But to these children and their families they weren't 'just two'. Their whole lives have been turned upside down by these monsters.

Why are our children not protected in the first place?

Why aren't there harsher laws in place to appropriately punish and keep these creatures away from our children?

I believe the appropriate reprimands will deter the majority of these depraved individuals and for those that still prey on our children despite harsher sentences, then justice can be served accordingly. The victims and families would never be the same again but at least they can find comfort in knowing that the future of their attackers is bleak; not one in which they are simply counting down the days until the inadequate 3 year prison sentence is up. The victims and families live a life sentence yet the abusers are set free after a few years, often with a new identity. Where's the justice in that?

I read so many comments from people on social media reacting to these cases and putting forward their views on what should happen to these people who have absolutely no place in our society. They all cannot understand why the attackers have got off so lightly.

I believe a thoroughly vetted selection of the public should have a say in rewriting laws to protect children so they can reflect what we truly feel child abusers and paedophiles should face to keep them away from our children.

The voice of the public says people who harm children are the worst in our world and need to be eradicated. The current laws do not support this and we welcome a change to effectively keep our children safe.
