He was a pedophile caught red handed and now serving time. Second chance or otherwise, that is none of my concerns.
However, his case should also be viewed on the possibility – no matter how remote it might well be – that it could provide leads to close cases which have long haunted us.
I am talking about the cases of young children going missing and - in the case of 8-year old Nurin Jazlin (May Allah rest her soul, Amin) - murdered, where the perpetrator/s was/were never caught.
Could not our investigators liaise with UK’s Metropolitan Police to trawl the data retrieved from the local pedophile to see if any of the more than 30,000 sick images could provide leads to the unresolved cases?
Potentially, this task would require hearts that are diamond hard and stomach steely strong due to the extreme nature of the said images and videos, but what if, what if, there is the slightest of chance of a lead found.
Remote, sure, but….
The pedophile is a Malaysian Malay who could well have included such words that reflected his demographic origins while searching the net to fulfill his demented fantasies.
Typing the above makes me feel sick to the core.
What kind of creature would do such a thing in the first place? God forbid.
Any kind of lead that could put a closure to the hurt, the feeling of helplessness, and the anguish of parents who have lost their loved ones needs to be pursued.
It a worthy cause that should be taken.
