sould we have the right? Lock Rss

There is so many child abuse and peodophile* stories in the papers and media these days... cant remember reading the paper and not seeing something about it.

Do you think we have a right to know? and what they were convited of??

in america they have a law thats shows where the convited people live and a rating of how dangerous they are and what they were convited for.

do you think thats something we should have? or do you think its invasion of privacy?
Yes, i think i would like to know if a pedophile is living in my street or near my kids. HELL YEAH!
I am sorry but i have no sympathy for pedophiles or sexual abusers of any kind.
If they could all go live on a island somewhere or be castrated that would suit me.
Disgusting, sick minded, foul, poor excuses for human beings.

I think you get how i feel on the subject!!
I dont think we need to, I believe you should be vigalent of your child at all time no matter who lives in your neighbourhood. I think that there is greater threat to your child from a non convicted preditor than a convicted one.
Im not saying I would be happy with a convicted peadolphile living in my area, but whether there is or not I aim to educate both myself and my child in order to ensure her safety.

I think they should be named and shamed, and the people they live near told that they are there. They lost their right to privacy when they abused children. They shouldn't be protected, the children around them should be.

Yes a parent is going to be diligent anyway, but it only takes a split second for an abduction to happen. I would want to know if someone like that was living near me.

i have talked to my child bout stranger danger and all those kids of things, but they are kids and can be manipulated easily.... they dont fully understand no matter how much u teach them what could happen!
i personally would like to know.... i live in a small small town and apparently theres over 100 here in town, its quite scary and no amount of parenting could 100% protect them from these types of people.
At the risk of playing devils advocate..............although I abhor paedophiles personally and cannot understand their thinking on any level, where do you suggest that convicted paodophiles and the like go to live?
Its all very well to say that I need to know about them and their activities and their history, and I dont want them in my neighbourhood. But then, where are they to go? A case of NIMBY?
Of course, no parent, deep down inside would be thrilled or even completely comfortable with a paedophile living next door, or down the street etc.
But, if we are to know about the histories and risks of convicted paedophiles, where is the line then? Do we also want to know when convicted murderers are released and where they are living, in case they do it again? Convicted armed robbers, in case they want to break into my house and threaten me with a gun? Convicted drug dealers or cultivators, in case they sell to my children? The list goes on.

I think vigilance and education are the only ways we can try and ensure our childrens safety, not just about child abuse and paedophilia, but on all sorts of life topics.

I think we should know where these people are plus we could be vigalent at all times anyway.

They could go live at the rubbish tip for all I care! <img src='https://www.huggies.com.au/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dry.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='<_<' />

I completely agree....

Of course im going to protect my child from them with everything ive got wether i know where they are or not....But i think we all have a right to know!

Aren't most cases of pedophilia/abuse etc done by someone the child and family knows and trusts (as opposed to a child being abducted)? So, the person living next to you for a couple months, really nice, might have kids of their own, offers to babysit etc might actually be a pedophile. Think about who looks after your children. Who you trust. You can be as vigilant as the next person but you don't really know what goes on behind closed doors or inside peoples heads. These kinds of people can take months, years even to gain trust and confidence before an assault is made.

I'm 100% for naming and shaming. They lost the right to privacy when they assaulted a child. I should know if the person I've began to trust and see as a friend see's my child as something more.

It's also been proven that it is nearly impossible to rehabilitate pedophiles.

Personally I like the idea of castration with a rusty knife.
