On the argument that people should be told about paedophiles living in their neighbourhoods. People seem to be unaware that the main reason for not releasing such information is not to protect the rights of the abuser per se, but rather to make children safer. At the moment, most released sex offenders have their whereabouts known by the police, so if there are any attacks, they know they would be the first port of call. Once that info is released to the general public, the offender is invariably hounded from their home and they move without informing the police where they are going. So then, you still have paedophiles living near you, but neither you nor the police know where they are.
