Letter: Internet crimes against children must be stopped

To the Editor:

Here is something both sides of the political spectrum can cheer about: the Justice Department has taken action in a major, nationwide operation conducted by Internet Crimes Against Children and has arrested 2,300 pedophiles since March. And for what I thought an intractable problem, the Senate and House both passed legislation to enable women and children who have been bought and sold through websites to sue those sites. As soon as these looked like passing several of the sites shut down.

I am so tired of those who shake their heads and do nothing. These are the kind of current events items I hope our highly-educated children are learning in school.
