brings up a very interesting point about peoples rights to know about potentially harmful convicts, of certain crimes - should we be warned if they live near us?

The lawyer says its a matter of public record - but how many of us are going to check up on new neighbours?

We bought a house unknowlingly next door to a convicted paedophile. We had two young children at the time, and once I had found out I went to the police station to find out the likelyhood of a person like him re-offending.  The policewoman informed me that he had a right to a chance to start again...

...well maybe, but not right next door to young children!


P.S It got so strange the dog ranger was after him in the end for bestiality.

yup was a very interesting programme

i agree with some of what they saying, they were saying do you have the right to know the criminal record of a person looking after your kid, and i agree you should - also agree with them saying they wont disclose the shop because everybody has to live and work somewhere

it is always a very fine line to keep everyone safe and happy.

I think the people in Heathers local town are going to know about her shop now!

Perhaps people who commit certain crimes should be monitored more and case-by-case taken on disclosure?

Still a tough one.

I don't know that the investigator should have shown everyone on tv the pic of the shop - perhaps that was his way of getting the info out there without actually saying anything?

Her hubby was a surprise.  And will we every find out WHY she did it?

i dont think he should have shown it either.

i think you would be surprised at the level of monitoring, and it is already decided on a case by case basis

towns are notified before a sex offender is released in their town, they just dont tell you the house they are in.  when they are first released, they are under strict monitoring

same goes for other serious, but less risky crimes like murder etc

they are still monitored when first released

most criminals are monitored to a degree through probationers, regardless of the crime

risk assessments are conducted before any prisoner is released, these include both static and dynamic factors that are calculated to assess their risk of reoffending, risk of reconviction, and risk to the public

and it is the results of these risk assessments that help to decide whther they should be released, and if they are the conditions that they are released on

oh and the release of sex offenders is always where it is determined that they will be safest (i mean safest in the term of being they are less likely to reoffend)

unfortunately sometimes this means that they are close to children, but they are usually released where they will get the most support, be it from family, friends, work etc

but the more support they have, the less likely they are to reoffend
