Jessica’s Law needed to protect Hawaii’s children

What is The Maui News’ position on Jessica’s Law in Hawaii, or at least some form of it? I look forward to reading the paper’s opinion. When is The Maui News going to take a stand on this issue?

State Rep. Kaniela Ing, U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono continue to do nothing. Gov. Neil Abercrombie doesn’t do anything either. All he can do is pass legislation making it mandatory that back-seat adult passengers in automobiles now have to wear seat belts. Politicians have a strong tendency to involve themselves in the trivial, unimportant things if they can’t accomplish anything significant.

I have sent emails to all of the above with not one reply. I conclude that Ing, Gabbard, Hirono and Abercrombie do not care about the children of Hawaii.

We must have mandatory sentencing for those who sexually molest children.
