Letter: Protect our children with harsher laws

Have you heard of the documentary film that Hollywood doesn’t want you to see? It’s called “An Open Secret” and exposes pedophilia in Hollywood. It was privately released in 2014. Never heard of it? There’s a reason. Powerful people in the film industry have been ignoring and suppressing it just like they’ve done with the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

Whether you’re a parent or not, everyone needs to view this film because it provides real life examples of how these pedophile predators “groom” their targets. This information can be useful wherever children interact with adults. Despite the horrendous subject matter, this film has been edited to PG-13 and you can see it free at https://vimeo.com/138965813 and on many YouTube channels.

To protect our children, politicians at every level need to pass harsher and mandatory sentencing laws for these pedophile predators. If you see judges or politicians who refuse to deliver maximum prison time, then you’ll know who to remove.
