THE FOUNDER EXPLAINS WHY
AGAINST CHILDREN MUST BE REMOVED.
THIS'LL MAKE YOU
What would your
want you to do?
Kelly Thorne, the founder of The Child Safety Act, was unable to take the person who hurt her off the street due to legal time restrictions
(a.k.a. the statute of limitations).
She and everyone on the Child Safety Act team is dedicated to getting rid of this time restriction,
making sure our children are safe
and our streets are free from perpetrators.
The time you have to take someone to court if they hurt you
What's a statute of limitations?
Why would states
put a time limit on little kids to take
off the street?
A MAN WALKS INTO A POLICE STATION
HE CONFESSES HE'S BEEN ABUSING CHILDREN FOR DECADES,
BUT THE POLICE CAN'T CONVICT BECAUSE OF THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS
HE WALKS FREE TODAY, ABLE TO HURT MORE CHILDREN
1) case overload:
There might be so many kids that were hurt, that the courts would have lots of cases.
Why some people want to leave the
statute of limitations against children:
Are survivors memories reliable?
NY recently removed
the time limit for survivors.
How did they deal with the influx of cases?
Seems like pretty weak reasons to keep children from taking bad guys off the streets....
Hoooo would want to keep these laws?
So many ways to help!
