A gay man in Texas has been praised for his efforts in working with local children who have suffered various forms of abuse from paedophile groomers on the internet.
Larry Sabu, 20, started working with the children three months ago, and has already had a marked effect on them.
Said Larry "Many of these kids were stalked by paedophiles online, who took the children into their confidence, only to exploit them later. These people should be locked up. They are sick. I wouldn't do that, I just wouldn't. I'm not like that," he lied.
Larry's advice to the youngsters was to avoid internet chatrooms, and sites where personal information is required, and especially photographs. Larry commented "Instead, they can send all of their info and photos to me. I will keep it all safe in a box under my bed, and will only open that box in an extreme emergency."
Children's groups have been impressed by Larry's good work. One told us "Larry is a natural at this kind of work! He can really 'get inside' the kids' minds, and seems to know exactly what to say to them to get them to listen. He's marvellous!"
