Harsher penalties for child and sex abusers.

It is important to protect our children in a world that is becoming more and more abusive. If you look around I bet you know someone or know of someone who has been abused whether it was physically or sexually. If you commit this act you get less jail time than someone who sells drugs. I see something wrong with this picture. I am a survivor of child abuse and sexual assault. The damage it does and the emotional scars it leaves on a person are far longer than that of the abuser who spends time in jail. We need to change this. It isn't right for the victim to endure a lifetime of pain while their attacker only spends a couple of months or years in jail.
