Israeli police say six men have been arrested in a suspected pedophilia ring thought to have preyed on dozens of Jerusalem children. Police say the ring is suspected of molesting 70 children between the ages of 2 and 7 in their religious Jewish neighborhood. Police say it’s not clear whether more suspects and children are involved because the investigation is not finished. Officials familiar with the investigation said parents tried to solve the problem themselves and took months to involve police.
This is a problem here in the US as well. Parents instead of notifying police or other authorities, try to handle it themselves and more kids get hurt. Silence promotes more violence. Parents should always notify the proper authorities when abuse of a child occurs. If these people are not arrested, they hurt more and more children.
Sexual abuse of a child is a crime in the U.S. that must be reported by law. If you know or even suspect that a child is being abused, you must report it. Our children are depending on us. The National Child Abuse Hotline # is 1-800-252-2873, 1-800-25ABUSE
