Ireland: Laws to protect sex offenders’ identities must be considered, says outgoing probation chief

[ – 1/1/20]

Ireland should consider introducing privacy laws to protect the identities of sex offenders being released back into the community, the outgoing director of the Probation Service believes.

Such laws, which are in place in several other countries, would prevent the public naming of offenders in the media and would aid in their rehabilitation and therefore reduce the risk of re-offending, Vivian Geiran said.

“I certainly think there is a case to be made for that,” Mr Geiran said in an interview ahead of his retirement after seven years as head of the service.

He said the service has dealt with several cases where a violent or sexual offender has been released into prearranged accommodation “but they’re identified at the point of their release”.

“And they end up sleeping in a tent in a park or something. And the bottom line is they’re at a higher risk of offending if they’re not in a stable situation.”

Wow, Ireland has concerns for the civil rights of their citizens, maybe one day the United States will leap forward into the modern age and adopt some of the policies of forward leaning, modern societies like Ireland.

@Eric it will never happen! Our country is based on sex! Form selling cars to beer. You got women all over it! Tight pants. Cut up shirts. Short mini shirts. Women in bras. Just watch the tv. And count how many commercials you see for women and kids. Than count the ads for mens those ads talk about getting you hard for the women. Or you need life insurance for her and the kids! Men our nothing but cash cows and sperm banks. Just a fool that dances around for the evil life sucking, money hungry, backstabbing, lie in to people that you a child abuser! As i know as a heartless female sub human who even has the courts on its side. To mow down any man who even dare take her on in a fight!!! You will lose!!!! But life goes on. And i hope men will wake up and see how women have taken over.

@Vampire…ouch!!! ease up there Vampy. There is certainly truth to what you say about advertising, no question, but to categorize all women in a class is no different then what is being done to people on the registry. I have been fortunate enough to date a woman that was very understanding of my situation and even attended an ACSOL meeting to learn what it was all about. As well, we have an amazing women devoting her career to helping defend our violated civil rights and hopefully take down this dreadful and unconstitutional registry. Hey, remember the saying in the 80’s that was popular before the digital age? “Kill your TV.”

Sorry Eric.. Sometime i get upset over what happen to me. How i got railroaded back in the day. I will try to keep my self in check lol

He is worried about rehab and recidivism for all the Wrong reasons…Not because he/they give a Damn…He/others forsee LAWSUITS/TROUBLE On Its Way !!!
