According to this morning’s Christchurch Press, Comrade Locke claimed that making the addresses of offenders public would open the way for more “disgraceful vigilante action” of the type recently seen in New Brighton..
Comrade Locke went on to say “We need more compassion towards former sex offenders trying to reintegrate into society”….If we had that, then former offenders wouldn’t need to hide their past and the community could work with them in ensuring the safety of children in the area“.
Get the Marxist outlook here. Sex offenders are the responsibility of society. We have an obligation to let them live in their midst and help them to reform.
Comrade Locke clearly does not see sexual offending as a personal evil choice, the consequences of which should be borne by the villain himself.
Comrade Locke is right that we should have compassion for sex offenders. They are human too and nobody is completely beyond redemption. However if you commit a heinous offence against a child, the most compassion you should realistically expect is not to be hung or castrated.
Some crimes cannot be atoned for in a lifetime. That is the harsh reality. The perpetrators of such crimes should be jailed for life to suffer and reflect on their flaws.
Those a bit lower down the scale of evil, may one day seek release from jail, to work every remaining day of their lives towards atonement and forgiveness.
They should be marked men for life. That is until they can prove (and the onus is most certainly on them) that they can once again be trusted by decent people.
Comrade Locke has no kids. He has been a Marxist nutcase his entire life. He has supported murderers, tyrants and torturers and praised them as heroes.
How does he have the cheek to tell decent, sane people that they should allow convicted sexual predators to mingle incognito with their children?
The man should be locked in a dark cell with six of them for a month. Dressed as above.
