How should we deal with convicted sex offenders returning to the community?
"Recent vigilante action has sparked a debate about dealing with convicted sex offenders after release from prison.
Newstalk Breakfast spoke with Maeve Lewis, Executive Director of One in Four, and Padraig MacLochlainn, TD for Donegal North East and Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Justice and Equality, this morning.
Ms Lewis said that while she could “really understand the concern parents might have if there were convicted sex offenders living in the community” it was still important to resist any temptations to give in to mob mentality.
“I think we need to take a deep breath and stand back and a look at what is the best way to protect children,” she said.
The man attacked in the video has been widely identified in the press and on social media – by radio show hosts to politicians in recent weeks – and Chris asked Ms Lewis what the knock on effect of that could be.
“I suspect what will happen is that man is going to go underground and that is when he will be most dangerous,” she said.
“All the research shows right around the world that if we are to keep children safe, the sex offenders we know, be they convicted or not, need a number of things – they need not to be living in isolation.
“They need support from the community, they need to have meaningful work and they need to be managed by the statutory services.
“The guards, the probation officers, social workers need to know where they are and keep an eye on them.”"
