There are 17,000 convicted paedophiles in Australia but only a fraction of them are being monitored.
If this fact doesn’t scare you then you are not paying attention !!!!!
17,000 convicted paedophiles out there, living near pre-schools, near public schools, near swimming pools and within 4 years of being released, more than half of them will have re-offended !
Per capita Western Australia has the most paedophiles, having a population of only 2.7 million there are more than 3,500 convicted paedophiles living there. WA’s huge list compared with 4,000 people in Victoria, which has a population of 6.36 million, and about 3,500 in Queensland. There are 379 on the Northern Territory’s register, and about 300 on Tasmania’s. Queensland was in 2016 closely monitoring 94 of its worst offenders, 67 living in Brisbane and 17 in Townsville, which only has a population of 190,000. Hundreds are said to be living on the Sunshine Coast, including 70 in Palmwoods-Woombye where Daniel Morcombe, 13, was raped and murdered in 2003.
About 1,100 of NSW’s paedophiles live in the north of the state, between the Central Coast and the border with Queensland, making this one of the most densely populated paedophile places in the country.
Disturbingly, only a fraction of the worst criminals are actively monitored as police resources are pushed to their absolute limits. In parts of New South Wales, one officer is responsible for trying to keep tabs on up to 100 convicted child sex offenders – even then it is often on an ‘ad hoc, part-time basis’.
With almost half of the convicted paedophiles reoffending within four years, police admit they have no idea where hundreds of those on the ever-growing list are living. Each year, dozens of dangerous offenders slip the net and have to be hunted down. Why they are simply given a warning when caught is beyond us. They clearly show that they have no interest in obeying the laws and staying away from children by slipping the net, and still they aren’t locked up where they belong.
Some commit new crimes just hours after being released from prison, as was the case with serial Sydney paedophile Dean Angus Bell, 25 who went on to abuse more children while on parole. With an increasing number of child sex offenders out on parole and thousands more soon to be released, there are calls for a public register.
The problem is so bad that the NSW Police Union issued a desperate plea for additional officers to monitor the state’s more than 4,000 registered offenders. Police Union president Tony King said there was often only one officer for every 100 cases when each officer could realistically only handle 30 cases at most.
Mr King spoke about the need for a public sex offender’s register, this is something that FACAA and Derryn HInch have been working towards for years. Recently the national Liberal party joined our calls for a register. For some reason the Labor party is standing firmly against it. We at FACAA have asked them several times for a comment, before running this story and at the time of publishing they have declined to comment.
‘The child protection register is our way of keeping an eye on these grubs, to prevent reoffending, and to protect our kids,’ he said. ‘The officers who do this work day in and day out are stretched to capacity… we simply don’t have enough police to do the job.’
Mr King said police only had time to intensively monitor 67 convicted paedophiles a month and the whereabouts of 201 are unknown. There are 62 whose DNA has never been tested, which could be matched to unidentified DNA samples in 80 cold cases.
About 1,100 of NSW’s paedophiles live in the north of the state, between the Central Coast and the border with Queensland. In those areas there were no officers keeping tabs on them full-time and it was instead done on a ‘part-time, ad-hoc basis’ on top of their regular duties. So in other words they are not being monitored like they should be.
The first and most obvious solution to this problem would be to properly fund our police officers. Provide more officers and more resources for them to protect our kids from these monsters. The second solution which as we said FACAA have been fighting for since our inception, is a publicly accessible sex offender’s register. The register already exists all we are asking for is to make it public so as parents we can then make informed decisions as to who teaches our children, or who we live next door to.
Before anyone says “but what about vigilantes” think about it. If anyone was to attack a child rapist it would surely be the family of the victim right ? The fathers, the mothers, the brothers, the sisters who see what damage these paedophiles have inflicted on their loved ones. These are the people who are most likely to attack if anyone was going to, however they already know who these monsters are, they already know everything about them and funnily enough they don’t go killing them. So why on earth do you think some random stranger would hurt them ? Fact is, most people simply don’t even care about them. Don’t over inflate your sense of importance paedophiles…
But what about Electronic monitoring, usually with an ankle bracelet ? This helps keep track of offenders, but is only reserved for the worst ones – who still frequently escape. Thirty in South Australia wear them – 10 of which were locked up for breaching parole – and almost 100 in Victoria.
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton in January proposed the state lists be combined into a semi-public national register. Paedophiles’ names, dates of birth, photos, crimes, and a general location such as their postcode would be included. Mr Dutton said this would allow parents to better protect their children as they would know how many child sex offenders lived in their neighbourhood.
‘It would have a strong deterrent effect on offenders and ensure parents are not in the dark about whether a registered sex offender has access to their children,’ he said. Western Australia’s register allows the public to search for dangerous and high-risk paedophiles living in surrounding suburbs and they have not had a single vigilante style attack yet.
The Victorian opposition proposed a similar scheme last year before it lost the state election. One Sydney mayor wants to remove this issue altogether by declaring his council area a ‘paedophile-free zone’ in a letter to the NSW Government. ‘Our city has more than 52 schools and is built on families — I want it to be a paedophile-free zone,’ Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone wrote. ‘I demand this paedophile and any others in Fairfield are removed from this and other similar neighbourhoods.’ Well done Frank !
Parents of children NEED to know where these monsters are hiding ! Fact is they often “forget” to mention their child raping past when they start new relationships or when they start new jobs, working near and around children. Child rapists are master manipulators and will do whatever they can to get near children. With a publicly accessible sex offender’s register we have a chance of stopping the 17,000 paedophiles in their tracks !
