I think this is a bad idea, depending on the case
I spent many years looking after children who had suffered major amounts of abuse throughout thier early years, as a result some of these grew up
thinking this was the norm and subsequently abused others given the chance. To a few, this was thier idea of communicating as thats the way thier
abusers had commincated with them in the past.
Would i make those kids wear a t-shirt saying they were sex offenders? What do you think?
I have kids myself so i don't take subjects like this
lightly, but to be honest i don't think they really know the best way to deal with these people yet.
Would a t-shirt stop a sex offender doing it to another kid? What the lawmakers forget is that not all kids are with thier parents all of the time,
and a lot of the victims of abuse are'nt old enough to read a t-shirt slogan. How is that going to stop a sex offender.
I think every case should be dealt with individually. Some of these offenders need lots of therapy, some need taking off the streets instead of giving
them a t-shirt.
Some i would quite willingly pull the trigger myself. I have sat in a police interview room listening to a double child rapist/murderer describe what
he had done as if he had just popped down the shops for some milk. He was'nt fussed at all.
Unfortunately, we can say hang these people, or give them the help they urgently need, at the end of the day, theres still many victims out there
which the government forgets about. I've seen sex offenders get more rights, protection and help than their victims, and that i feel is dead
