I was watching a program today on UK TV about perps and naming them in the community.
I would like you to keep strong emotional views out of the equation, to try and find a solution to current problems countries face.
We have a sex offender register employing God knows how many people, using antiquated computer systems that cant talk to each other because of government cut backs.
You can be on an unofficial sex offender register for doing something like peeing in a park, adn the cops see you, or a young boy having sex with a young girl etc.,etc.
Statistically the register shows that there are far more offenders than the public seemed to ever realise, leading to an atmosphere that no child is safe in our land.
It makes the cops look like they are doing a grand job of detecting perps which we know they could not possibly do.
There was talk of splitting the register into another register called the sexual offended register which would be in the public domain.
It means that anybody who has facilitated sexual acts with a child would be recognizable in the area they chose to live in.
The main difference in the new proposal would mean that services would be able to monitor those who are a known risk to children and likely to reoffend, perps.
What I am trying to say is this, that the public should not know the actual residence of perps, but know that there is a risk in their area.
Sex offences are generally perceived as less than a murder here, when quite the opposite is true.
Why should we not have the identity and wherabouts of a psycho axeman out on licence until he chops someone down!
Imagine if such a register rendered one innocent person to be murdered because somebody got him mixed up, and targetted the wrong house, because nobody told the register he had moved?
Do we turn them into a leper colony?
Is it just another sickness of the mind?
Is there a real answer?
Whoever stole the Sun, put it back and we'll drop all the charges!
