Too many news articles lately have proven that we need stronger laws against pedophiles.
A 40 year old female educator who had “fallen in love” with an 11-year-old primary school student with whom she exchanged sweltering declarations of love was given a simple slap on the hand, home imprisonment and community work. That is not enough.
In 1991, movie director Luc Besson, who was then 32 years old, met and eventually married model Maïwenn Le Besco when she was only 15. If this isn’t child marriage and paedophilia, I don’t know what is. And his getting away with it without any charges being pressed.
I’m ashamed that we are failing at protecting our children from predators.
