At Penn State, Joe Paterno, a respected and beloved football coach, failed to report instances of sexual abuse performed by one of his coaches, Jerry Sandusky, to the police. Essentially, he knowingly worked with a child molester for years and left him in charge of innocent children. Fortunately, Pennsylvania is now considering bills that would hold people accountable for this type of abuse, but what about the rest of the children in the US?
Sex abusers lurk in places where children thrive. Adults should have a moral obligation to make sure that children are kept safe from these kinds of dangers. However, states must implement legal action as well.
It is time for the law to pick up where humanity has left off. Urge your governor to pass stronger laws about reporting child sex abuse today. Save countless numbers of children from suffering at the hands of sex abusers.
