Of late, there have been so many reports of sex fiends and their heinous crimes in the papers. They are like dirt surfacing up on water surface. Everyday, there will be at least one article on this sort of crime in the papers.
I remember reading a couple of days ago that members of the public are against the disclosure of the names of pedophiles for fear of the family members being ostracized and shunned. I am of the opinion that this depends on the severity of the situation. In most cases if the only harm that the pedophile has done is to surf child porn in the internet, these can be forgiven and given treatment. However, like the one in little Nurin’s case or the latest one in today’s papers about the medium who had been preying on a 10 year old and her brother a 13 year old, I simply cannot agree that we just read it and hope that somebody catches this guy.
Taking the law into our own hands? I don't think so. I would like to think that every extra pair of eyes and hand helps. My friend and I were reading the an English daily today about the case. Yes, we know that the police and the various investigative teams are doing the best that they can. In this sea of 28 million over people and many tucked away places, one can stay hidden for a long time, if one tried hard enough. So, can we help? It would help a heap if we had photos. A great written description of the culprit is as helpful as identifying whose heap of crap it is.
What I don’t understand is when I continued reading the English daily that it was mentioned that the Chinese Dailies like China Press and Sin Chew covered this story with publishing the photographs of the fiend when I cannot even find one little photo in the English Daily. Is it because it was considered bad taste? That it was protecting the little 10 year old girl and 13 year old boy. Oh please. Think about the possibility of this evil beast doing the same to other children in future. Isn"t it better to have him caught and jail as soon as possible?
My friend and I tried to go into Sin Chew’s website but being truly banana people, we both stared at the screen and it just stared back at us. We were not able to decipher anything from the site. Sought the help of our office tea lady who so happened to have yesterday’s copy of Sin Chew to help us locate the piece that we needed. My friend suggested that I took the photos and posted it, so that we all know how the beast looks like and perhaps by the circulation of these photos, he can be put behind bars the soonest possible.
