Laws should protect the vulnerable

Print Article

Iíve always believed police are to protect and serve. As a mother who wishes to protect her disabled daughter who has been taken advantage of, it should be a crime. Laws need to be changed that protect the mentally disabled. Rape is rape, abuse even for an adult. I canít fight alone. Iím asking people, please contact senators and those in Congress to change the laws to protect those who arenít able to speak for themselves. Weíre the voices that make America great. Itís time for a change. Help the homeless, veterans, education and programs that help the many people looking for a helping hand.
