The Truth About IPP Sentences

Sex Offender Register is a Waste of Money

Major criticism has recently been expressed with regard to the UK Sex Offender Register. Many senior police officers think it is a waste of time and money and nobody really believes it has ever prevented an offence from being committed.

Only yesterday, a man was convicted of organising the distribution of child porn on Facebook. What is more interesting is the fact that it was the Australian police who discovered the link with the UK not the much vaunted Child Exploitation and Online Protection branch of the British police. Indeed, if one looks closely at CEOP, it is clear that they, like most other branches of the UK police rarely actually detect anything; they simply wait for people to be ‘grassed up’ by other members of the public who may have a personal axe to grind.

So much for so little…just click on the image above

The Sex Offender Register, as operated in the UK,  is regarded by France, Spain, Italy and many other EU states as being unlawful. Futhermore, one must remember that it is another import from the US put in place as a knee-jerk reaction to a particular offence. The countries that do not follow the example of the UK seem to have many fewer problems than we do when it comes to managing risk. They also recognise that people can change for the better whereas the Bitish believe the opposite.

This site is of the opinion that the 2 million people who now earn a very good living as part of the UK Child Protection Industry are only allowed to continue to do so because they are also 2 million voters that no government wants to upset. Everyone in power is afraid to speak the truth of this ridiculous situation for fear of being citicised by the press.

What they should all realise is that the majority of sexual offences against children are committed in the family environment by people who are not on the register and who have not yet been caught. It is also the case that most of them are in fact never caught and so never appear on the Register. One reason for this is that the government and charities who rely on other people’s money are terrified of criticising families. Newspapers too are afraid of criticising those who buy their publications.

The very fact that the man convicted yesterday was already on the Sex Offenders Register Рas well as the Visor register  Рand yet was still able to commit his offences, proves that the Register is useless, expensive, stigmatises people, prevents them from ever getting any sort of job again and, worst of all, protects no one.

The Opinion Site shares the view of the police chief who said the Register should be torn up and thrown away. The trouble is, our pathetic politicians are a bunch of total cowards who are afraid to do or say anything which may attract criticism and threaten their overpaid political positions of power.

It was recently suggested that there may well have been paedophiles in Tony Blair’s inner cabinet; strange how that didn’t get much publicity and more strange still that nobody allegedly involved was ever investigated. Well actually, it is not that strange. After all, there was no one to ‘grass them up’ was there?

    Seriously what were they thinking? Men think of the kids and would you ever want your child to be among those victims in here? When will people have the heart for it?

      If I read you right, like so many others, you have completely missed the point. The fact is that the Register does NOT protect anyone. How can it when all it does it enable the police to find someone AFTER they have committed an offence? What is more, if you were to take the trouble to research this properly instead of believing all the rubbish in the newspapers, you would find that “child sex offenders” have the lowest rate of reoffending and the highest rate of successful rehabilitation.

      Sounds to me like you just want to take some sanctimonious point of view whilst trying to blame someone else for the problems you have in your own life.

      Try looking at the facts for a change instead of believing the paranoia and the hype.

    “The Sex Offender Register, as operated in the UK, is regarded by France, Spain, Italy and many other EU states as being unlawful.”

    It is a matter of culture too. There are people in the UK who feel that their “human rights” are violated by so many restrictions. Everyone knows such practice will never really be in effect in Thailand either. Some tourists flock the place just for that. I am not saying that is a good thing, but that there are some rules that won’t really work for other countries. Hence,it does waste money.

    I’ve been saying this for years now and it is finally sinking in. The registry is useless, unless you’re a vigilante. Studies in the US have found at times the registry ha actually made things worse

    Thank you for publishing the truth about these draconian laws that ruin the lives of so many, yet fail miserably to protect children while wasting millions of taxpayer dollars. Until the legislature in the US stops garnering easy votes by pandering to a public educated by the media, who are in it for ratings by hyping only the most heinous, although rare, sex crimes against children, we must stand against them. One example is that with the growth of online usage by minors of over 70% during the last decade,true soliciation for sexual purposes grew approximately 23%, and most minors took care of it themselves by not responding, etc. Meanwhile, men caught for solicitation by undercover police grew over 300%, because they entrap and ensnare. Do we really need to create crime when gangs kill every day (including minors) and armed robbery is rampent?
    Law enforcement should concentrate their efforts on the worst of the worst, and others should be allowed to build productive lives. It is a slippery slope for government to “list” such a broad population when crimes are strikingly, and importantly, different. Soon there will be lists for all crimes, and perhaps for some who never committed a crime but have the “profile” of a criminal.
