National Sex Offender Registry

If this isn't a tough stance, I don't know what is.

The names and offences of sex fiends, including paedophiles, will be published in newspapers and posted on the Internet soon.

In fact, it is apparently of such importance that a whole bunch of online dailies decided to cover it. Funky. I could do with publicity like this.

The Inspector-General said "drastic measures" were necessary because of an increasing number of sex crimes.

“We will let the public know what type of crime the convicted person had committed and to be wary of him if he is in their neighbourhood.

“We know some may say why punish them again, but in view of the current trend of children going missing and being sexually assaulted we have to take drastic measures,” he said.

“If we know that a convicted paedophile or sex offender is about to enter the country we will bar him from entering immediately.”


That means we wouldn't be seeing the likes of anyone like Christopher Neil near any of our children, much less teaching them.
