  1. There seems to be a huge increase in paedophilia/child molestation.

    What is causing the increase in this type of crime, or is it simply that authorities are now better equipped at catching them?

    At the end of the day, at least this is one more exposed.

    • Phil, I think you’re right in what you say, they are better equipped these days to catch the perpetrators of this absolutely abhorrent crime, I don’t think there’s anything in the system that works as a deterrent, so maybe dragging them by their ankles through the town centre maybe a good alternative 🤷🏼‍♂️

    • Better equipped-it used to be videotapes & photos, nowadays it is internet. The problem has always been huge, now it is just easier for those people to access. Most of the material being found on electronic devices is historical-from decades past & is already in the CEOP & Interpol databases.

  2. From West Midlands and released on bail!!!
    Like the dirty pedo isn’t just going to disappear somewhere else and continue being a sick depraved POS.
    Its absolutely disgusting and a sick joke. They will lock you up for less and let these sickos go free!!!
    Our justice system is a joke.
