Crime in K-12 School Systems

Nowadays TV and newspapers are flooded with news about child abuse. What is shocking is the pace at which crimes increase, including those in our K-12 School Systems.

We can easily find that our Police and Judiciary are not effective enough even after culprits are identified on solid evidence. 

Situation will improve only if culprits are sentenced to death or at least life imprisonment without any VIP benefits or any form of leniency.  This is the only way to instil a fear in evil people so that they don't even imagine committing crimes.
