LETTERS: Shameful behaviour

As I sit on the fence on this issue, I do lean over to one side over the other. I feel kind of grateful there is a force out there looking after our most vulnerable, but also feel that if it was sanctioned by the law it, of course, would be even better.

I understand the position the police are put under as they try to put all this into perspective, but in a legal manner. I believe they are overwhelmed with a minimal task force and do appreciate the considerable effort to aid them from civilians but there are protocols that they need followed.

I, for one, don’t really care how these creeps are caught. They are preying on our children. If they don’t feel that it’s justified to be shamed in public, then they shouldn’t be engaging in these shameful acts and should have thought of the implications from the start. They just don’t ruin their lives by being found out but all the people in their lives and of their victim’s lives. What if this is happening to their own kids?

These creeps don’t deserve to be protected by law. Even if they can’t be taken to trial, they are exposed. Good enough for me!
