We will never be a "civilized society " or a true "country of laws" as long as we don't repeal the statute of limitations on child sexual offenses.
Children can't be held accountable for coming forward on things they don't understand, are told didn't actually happen, they feel too ashamed of and have repressed, or haven't come to terms with.
It is a travesty of justice that the animals who commit sexual crimes against children are given a get out of jail free card.
Not only that but by allowing these predators of children to escape justice, we are actually enabling and encouraging their violence against innocent children.
A child cannot consent!
A child cannot fight off the grown-up!
A child is the absolute victim of the adults who traffick, abuse, molest, rape, and pimp them out.
Often the children are unaware and from disadvantaged families or communities--they are sold or taken, used, abused, and often murdered and thrown in a ditch or some river.
And why is there a statute of limitations on these crimes???
So I'll tell you one reason is that the people who are in power are often the same sick abusers, pedophiles, and sexual deviants.
They carry child porn on their computers, they sext compromising images of their genitals, they visit the dark web to lure children to their lairs, and they buddy up with other creeps to move and f*ck up these poor kids.
Sex is one of those areas where people are able to make every excuse in the book for what they do--it's an urge; it's a fetish; it's biological; it's a preference; maybe they're mad at their mommies or women in general--but never that they are sick f*cks who are abusing little children who cannot defend themselves!
Any politician that isn't standing up and working to immediately repeal the statute of limitation on sexual abuse against children--please ask them uncompromisingly why!
Remember, you were once a child, you likely have children, and if you are a moral and upright person you have a duty to protect the innocent children who cannot protect themselves.
G-d is watching and hearing them--are you? ;-)
