Sex Offenders and human rights
I am very much in favour of sex offenders' human rights being respected, but I confess to being more interested in the rights of children to be safeguarded and protected. If someone has sexually offended against a child, then there is always the possibility that they will do it again and that they might be a threat - how could anyone prove beyond all reasonable doubt that they were not? When the "rights" of a sex offender to be given greater freedom clash with the rights of a child to be protected from sexual abuse - then to me that is a no brainer!
