We Need To Be Aware

Filed under: Uncategorized — Roxy @ 12:18 pm

In the past few days I have been haunted by some of the stories I have read of victims of online predators. The one thing I have learned about these predators are that they are cowards. These men who solicit children online do and will go to jail/prison. When they are arrested they throw every excuse out there (…but the child wanted to have sex…I didn’t know she was a child…I was just kidding…) and thankfully the laws in most states make it clear that they are the ones at fault, not the child, and hold them accountable for their actions.

These men, and I cringe to even call them that, are out there looking for children. Some may just stumble upon a child and act upon their sick fantasies. There is absolutely no reason an adult should be chatting with a minor in these chat rooms…PERIOD. Children do not understand the hidden dangers of the people they are chatting with online. Alot of these kids have an unstable home life and are looking for the attention that these predators are more than willing to give them.

It doesn’t take a genius or a lot of time searching about this on the internet to realize that this is becoming a huge problem. More than likely, this problem will only get bigger if we do not step up and take action against them. One thing you can do is contact your States House Representatives.  Ask them how they stand on the current laws of Enticement of a Minor or Solicitation of a Minor on the Internet. 

The most Important thing you can do is be aware of this problem. You can find story after story where the parents were in the blind about what their child/ren were doing on the Internet. Don’t be fooled, this can happen to the best of children. A lot of these men know how to get these children to trust them. Your child may talk to them for days, weeks or months before he will make his move. Grooming is their game. Please do not think that these men who are out their looking for these children are that guy you see standing on the corner who gives you the creeps either. We’ve all seen that type of guy and most of us have our opinions on what he is up to. In actuality, the man on the other side of the monitor could be someone you work with, a police officer or a teacher. The people who prey upon our children come from all walks of life.

Here is a list of sites that will help inform you and help you inform your children:

  1. There is a very important new bill before the senate that works on lengthing sentences for sex offenders, closes some loopholes in the sex offender laws and provides additional protections for children. It is called HR 3132, The Child Safety Act. I recomend people take a look at the law and if they find they can agree with it, to write their senators and request that they pass this piece of legislation.

  21. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea
    because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching
    to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
