Sex offender laws and practice are far above the need for protective legislation.
The laws as they stand lead to many confusing situations, as the law does not even stand up to its statue.
So often laws are drafted to encapsulate whatever the authorities require it to be, and they can twist the law to suit their need, often breaking the basic habeous corpus rights of any individual.
I live in the UK, where this law gives authority the right to undermine even the most vulnerable in society 'children'.
I cannot be more specific in a public forum, but computers can hold information which is at worst 'wrong', but you have no control over what is put on these computers until you apply for a job or whatever.
A new computer system costing billions, is meant to share doctors records amongst other agencies, and it would lead to snooping on health records of individuals, including the 'sex lives' of children.
So far, this system has failed to work, as doctors refuse to comply with it, because it means that they have to spend a lot of time manually updating patients records.
We can use the one term here "likely to offend".
So, if a childs family report abuse of the child, then the child will have an automatic record of being "likely to offend", with them for life.
These multi agency computers are open to abuse, they are not the fail safe records that the health authorities hold.
Systems where a court would need to have been used to get information, can suddenly become open to agencies, who would merely need the right paperwork to access the records.
This information is readily available to anybody who can hack into any system which shares information on the internet.
Whoever stole the Sun, put it back and we'll drop all the charges!
