I was reading the morning Sun on Sept. 28 and commenting to my husband the content of articles, as I usually do. The front page of the newspaper read: "23 arrested in child sex string." After reading the article about Operation Intercept VII, I felt compelled to acknowledge our North Port and Sarasota police departments.
Especially today, with all the negative comments concerning law enforcement in general, I truly felt our law enforcement officers should be congratulated and applauded for protecting our children from sick predators.
We, as parents and grandparents, need to really take notice of what is happening on social media. Pay attention!
We must take some responsibility as to what our children are doing online. They are children! They are vulnerable, curious and naive. These sick men are using our children for sexual trafficking, sexual exploitation and their own sick, selfish desires.
My husband and I are so very grateful to our law enforcement officers for protecting our children from all 23 of these invididuals who care nothing about our children and are trying to destroy them for their own desires.
Thank you Sarasota and North Port police. God bless you all. We sleep better because you do your job.
