you may remember this from a few weeks back.

there is obviously a problem with re-introducing convicted abusers back into public life. it is not good for both the public or the convicted abuser.

the problem seems to lie with the conflict between informing the public of peoples past offences for public safety and the safety of the convict. As the article shows can be serious. can the government be justified in releasing a known paedophile into society?

Can the murder of a paedophile be justified? Probably.

i disagree, possibly tagging and tighter controls on areas they can visit, its been proven that re-introduction into public life helps reforming, naming (and shaming) them doesnt help, and with the media mob rule could rule the streets

yeah it is, but its obvious that allowing them into the public with people knowing they are paedophiles doesnt work. its not fair for parents to know that a paedophile lives on their road and its not fair that paedophiles have their name shown and are susceptable to violent abuse because of it

yes i agree its not good for people to be attacked, however there has to be something working the other way too.

that said anyone who says we have many more paedophiles than previously is just plain wrong. If you judged our society by the news how depressing would it be
