THE EDITOR, Sir:
It is quite disheartening how the State is treating our children. The same persons who are supposed to protect them are the same ones abusing them, while professing their love for them!
When the situation of the children being abused in various places of safety was brought to light, I was left dumbfounded!
These children are in dire need of our care and protection; having sex with them through fences and having them gyrating to lewd music, while turning a blind eye to the situation, is absurd! It seems as if some workers in institutions are being paid by these loathsome creatures to keep silent.
This type of behaviour cannot be condoned. Who are these children to turn to? They deserve better.
