Even for a hardened news man in a hardened newsroom the mass shooting at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is a ferociously shocking moment. We know at least 12 are dead, five are critically wounded and others beside. And those numbers will doubtless change during the day.

Wracked with violence from northern Nigeria all the way to Pakistan by radical action and bloodletting.

Should We Lock Up Paedophiles and Throw Away the Key?

Jon Brown | Posted 26.01.2015 | UK
Jon Brown

If we are going to protect children from sexual abuse we must make sure that anyone who recognises they have a problem, and want help to make sure they don't harm a child, is supported in getting treatment.
