Sex Offender Register is a Waste of Money

9-5-2010 United Kingdom:

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.

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 – as well as the Visor register – and 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? ..Opinion of: Andromeda

I can confirm that CEOP do indeed just wait for other authorities to submit reports of illegal activity. In my case, the Germans. They also work with the Serious Organised Crime Agency (essentially the British FBI) when they carry out raids.
