First let me state that this topic is in no way intended to condone the abuse of children. I think molestors are sick (.) who should all be castroated. Neither am I going to suggest we should return to the "good old days" when children were seen and not heard and sent to work down coalmines and such. But I am concerned than in our rabid pursuit of those we think may harm children, we seem to be forgetting that children can also harm us! I'll illustrate this with an example from my own observations. Where I live, the police station has a special child porn unit. All well and good, I want those sickos caught too. But there have been several cases where the police have arrested people or confiscated items just because someone was in possession of nude art books which feature children (books which are available at most specialist book stores). At the same time, our neighborhood is overrun with child gangs (some no more than twelve years old) who stay out late vandalizing property and threatening local people. And the same police force does nothing to stop them! It seems they would rather spend all day lookie for kiddie porn on the Internet rather than protect local people from intimidation. I'm not saying we should have armed police round up all the local children and throwing them in the brig. But I think there should be some balance. How do y'all feel about this?
