Police show their stupidity
Police have warned householders to be on their guard against three career criminals who are about to be released from prison.
But, astonishingly, they are refusing to name the villains - for fear of violating their human rights.
Their concerns prompted them to warn householders in the men's home area, telling them to be sure doors are locked and windows securely closed.
But they are refusing to give out crucial details which could help families protect themselves - including the men's photographs, names and ages.
This is utter stupidity. As far as I am concerned criminals automatically forfeit all their rights once they commit a crime. The sentences that criminals get should be the absolute minimum that they serve. If the authorities think that they will re-offend they should be locked up a bit more until it is certain that they won’t commit a crime.
As far as it being public knowledge about their crimes I think everyone’s crimes should be on a public database so all you have to do is type in a name or address in a website and it will come up with all the information of that offender including name, offence and their photo.
When people know they have criminals in their area they can watch out for them and be more careful.
