The 2003 Sex “offender” act a travesty in justice.

Comment 12th July 2010

The 2003 “sex offender” act / laws have stripped away the person suspected of a so called “sex offence” of his / her basic human and social rights.

1. It permits unprecedented powers to police forces that abuse these powers constantly.
2. it is far from transparent in anyway to the “offender” or their family.
3. The “powers” are limitless and enable police forces the alter and extend their authority.
4. It alienates the person accused of a “sexual offence” from society that creates isolation.
5. This act strips away the very civil rights of those accused and sentenced to a “sex offence” and their friends and family.
6. The so called “Public protection” offices are incapable professionally to engage with any person with mental health issues etc, they often act as suspicious detectives, further damaging the suspects, accused and family / friends health.
7. These powers prevent a healthy and normal reintegration back into society of “offenders” and prevent normal social contact and relationships from flourishing.

Giving the police the extensive powers under the 2003 sex offender act and especially the so called “Public protection officers” such powers is like giving a Butcher the license to perform brain surgery. The police and especially “public protection” have proven a scant regard for the “offender” and their family / friend. They have entirely abused their positions drastically harmed all concerned. The so called “public protection” officers are certainly NOT social workers, physiatrist or mental health professionals etc and only capable of being just that, Police.

Why does this matter?

The 2003 Sex “offender” Act / laws should be scrapped entirely.

It has proven to have the adverse effect on the offender and friends and family etc.

It fails to allow the “offender” from a healthy reintegration back into society literally making an “offender” a out law and out cast in the society, that person is supposed to live in.

The huge importance is to prevent an “offender” in any criminal situation to not re-offend, unlike other “criminal justice” situations this act literally permit’s continual punishment to the sex “offender” and his / her family and friends, if they are fortunate to still have such loyally and thus stand by them, and not harassed and chased off by the police authorities etc.
