Petition letter:

Letter to
Prime Minister
Independent Senator for South Australia, Leader of Nick Xenophon Team Nick Xenophon
My 15yr old daughter was the first child murdered by an online predator in Australia – after a paedophile spent 18 months grooming her. But it’s still not a crime for monsters like this to pretend to be a minor online in Australia.
Carly's killer masqueraded as a teenage boy before luring her to a secluded beach - he bashed and suffocated her face, then threw her into the water to drown. I could barely listen when I was read the court reports.
This predator had 200 fake online identities to groom teenage girls for sex.
My daughter had such a big heart and a bright future. She was so robbed of her life. It's a disgrace that Senators voted against a law to fix this in the past. I’m sickened by our legal system’s failure to recognise this crime, as well as the appallingly weak sentencing for child sex offenders.
I’m calling on Malcolm Turnbull & Bill Shorten to immediately commit to ‘Carly’s Law’ – a law that would make it illegal for adults to misrepresent their age to minors online for the purpose of grooming with the intent to meet that child.

Signed. Every person must be careful , especially youngsters, because that is a very evil cyber and organized gangstalking network worldwide, a very evil cult that is very difficult to fight against as many nominent and famous persons are among them sadly. Bastards- sorry for the strong language. Thanks Yusuf.

of course I signed this too - Thanks Yusuf for posting and Animae for the forward to bring it to my attention!

This is a very actual and sad theme, because there are so many abusive people, which use the net for their sick and atrocious activities. A few days ago I saw a very disturbing tv-film about such and after the film this theme was discussed. Children and young unexperienced people are using the net often so naiv and it is scaring how easy they can be misused. It is really needed to be very careful in such a sexualized world in which we live, and to protect them as much as possible! However - my thoughts are with the family and I deeply hope they catch this scum and punish him to the fullest extent of law!!!

I watched the video along with signing the petition. This man took 18 months! to groom this child to go off with him just so he could murder her. The Mother did everything correct, she watched over her daughters shoulder what she was typing and he was typing. She met, whom she thought was the minor's Father, checked out the credentials. He was a slick one for sure and the video said there are 750,000 more like him online. This law is a MUST and I hope my one more signature helps. I will also forward along. Please every spread this petition along, on C2, FB, via your email accounts. Our children are depending upon the adults to protect them.

Teenagers are a mixture of idealism and naivety. They do not like to think badly of 'friends' and definitively do not like to be rude (outside of familiar groups). But we know exactly what these people are up to! Lets make it harder for these predators to prey upon our children and young adults and easier for police to bring charges against them!
