After looking at facts and figures I believe that the evidence suggests children are in less danger than they were 100 years ago Many of the dangers have disappeared or the risk of them occurring has been reduced due to advances in technology and changes in society People can be forgiven for believing that children are in more danger of being murdered or abducted now because of the huge amount of media coverage these cases are given The first publicised case was the Myra Hindly case which shocked the nation to such an extent that she became demonised Until it was brought to light no one had heard of crimes such as that but that didnt mean they didnt exist Today newspapers are so concerned with creating fear and hysteria among the public to ensure selling more papers that they risk terrifying many parents In the last two years we have heard of so many abduction and murder cases Sarah Payne Amanda Dowler Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman are just a few of the most recent cases Because the media has the ability to reach so many people as quickly the police take the chance to publicise the case and for parents of the child to make often emotional pleas for help I believe this shows there are less murders and abductions today The lack of rules and regulations concerning child safety years ago would almost certainly lead to many more children being brought to harm and disappearing Today we also have many security methods in place to protect children such as cameras and locks on the doors of schools and crches Sure enough if we were to look back at past newspaper articles there would be fewer cases but just because the public are not informed as they are today does not mean that many children did not go missing Because of the increased volume of traffic on the streets
