The illusion of child protection: When politicians, law enforcement, and parents fail

Most current laws, including laws mandating registries, are of no use here or in any other context. They only serve to make politicians appear to be protecting children, they give law enforcement an excuse to abuse a segment of the population, and they give parents a false sense of security. The gap between intentions and outcomes needs to be addressed.

How to Handle Scam Phone Calls
