10 In de rauwe wereld van tienerpooiers | PANO

26 mrt. 2019

Jonge meisjes getuigen over hoe ze verstrikt raakten in het web van tienerpooiers in “Pano”. Ook gaf “Pano” zich online uit voor een meisje van 16 en stelde vast hoe snel minderjarige meisjes worden belaagd. Een unieke inkijk in de rauwe wereld van tienerpooiers.
 
AAASERO Be honest
Mensen moeten ophouden met zeggen dat al die meiden die de val in gelokt zijn dom zijn. Die pooiers hebben geen hart en zijn de gekke hier, niet die meiden.
Fleur Ali
“Ik zat in een put zonder ladder” zij het meisje, die ik zeer moedig vind. Trauma voor het leven. Een gesloten instelling is geen geschikte plek voor deze meisjes. Je sluit niet iemand op die opgesloten zit. Voor Saskia veel respect. En of het nu seksueel misbruik, pedofilie, incest of tienerpooiers zijn, het bestaat bij alle kleuren en lagen van de bevolking. Wat de daders betreft , zij doen zowat op straat wat de machtigen der aarde ongestraft doen. De hulpverlening aan de slachtoffers laat te wensen over en ik vrees dat er niet minder slachtoffers ten prooi zullen vallen in de toekomst, gezien het huidige politieke klimaat.
