I couldn’t agree more with SteveV: Far and Wide: Finally We Agree.
But having said that, let’s not get too crazy. I back the idea of allowing the use of the dangerous offender act in repeat sexual offenders, and frankly I’m surprised it’s not in use already, but I don’t think we should be going too far down this road. On local radio the last couple of days I’ve heard calls for publicizing the sexual offenders list and I can’t help but think that vigilante “justice” wouldn’t be too far behind. In these heated political times, would not put it past any political party to run this kind of issue too far for political points.
If these people can’t be trusted on release, then please, for all our sakes, let’s find a way to keep them locked up.
