Safer streets now Bryant is off them; [c]COMMENT.

OUR streets are a safer place today following the jailing of David Bryant.

This dangerman prowled the nation's streets and abducted at least four little girls in a reign of terror which stretched over decades.

He has shown no remorse whatsoever for his revolting actions which earned him the sobriquet "every parent's worst nightmare".

But today he has an opportunity to finally display some humanity , today he has a chance to make some amends, today is his opportunity show he is not a monster.

For today he can come clean and confess. Chillingly, the police officer whose dedication and hard work helped bring Bryant to justice believes there may be even more child abduction victims of Bryant's out there.

He fears that because Bryant was on our streets for so long, because he has displayed a complete lack of remorse, and because behaviour such as his is often habit-forming, there may well be even more victims of his out there.

That is a frightening scenario, but one which Bryant can disabuse us of.

Do the decent thing and tell someone when and where else you struck.

But seeing the lack of insight he's displayed over his behaviour and the complete lack of compassion or empathy he's shown, we don't expect him to do so.

More is the pity.
