Accused pedophiles like Xu, Sylvain Kustyan, and Jimmy Savile must be stopped ASAP. There is a nearly 100% recidivism rate among pedophiles, so the sooner they are gotten off the streets the better.

Life imprisonment for such crime is quite humble since teachers are meant to be respectable and honorable elders of communities. No sorrow nor pitifulness for such crime!
