Nurin's Law?

In The Star paper this morning, Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil says that the Malaysian Government may soon be declaring war on paedophiles. They intend to do this by looking for predators on the Internet chat channels preying on kids.

This is all well and good, and I support it. But it is all too late for little Nurin. Too late for all the other little girls who also needlessly lost their lives in the hands of perverts.

If Datuk Seri Shahrizat is willing to listen, with due respect, I suggest we enact a similar law to Megan's Law. Let' s call it Nurin's Law. It will be a fitting monument to little Nurin, who could have been saved. Nurin's Law would demand that the Police maintain a list of sex offenders, which would be made public so as to caution the all parents and the public to be alert and extra vigilant.

Dear Datuk Seri Shahrizat, can you please lead the way to champion and defend the defenseless? Can you get parents to stand up and be held accountable in safeguarding OUR kids? Children belong to us all. We must protect them. The Police can also do more to protect children by training its officers to be thorough in its investigations.

Please help before the predator who mercilessly struck many other children decides to strike again. Nurin's Law, anyone?

Hi Prathab! Tembam here. Just came acrossyour blog. Seems ex-journos are into blogging these days. Can't resist that urge to pen down your thoughts ya.

Come join other bloggers who are pushing for a Nurin Alert based on the Amber Alert. This is a fast system to alert the public when a child goes missing. The system is controlled by the Police and requres involvement of the Media and the community. Find out more at;;;
Let's do this one for the children bro.
