Children are among the most vulnerable members within our community and great lengths are taken to protect them at all costs. Adults – especially parents – have a responsibility to protect youngsters and it’s one that isn’t taken lightly. The schoolyard is patrolled by teachers, at the playground, parents watch like hawks, and tiny hands are grasped tightly while out in public. There are also social service systems in place whose sole purpose is to protect children. But sadly, there is no such thing as a perfect system. No society can protect every single child and in 2006 a tragedy in Barrie, Canada, was a painful reminder.

The compassion and understanding the officer shows during the interrogation is admirable.
