Go back to the first reply on this. A reference was made to 'backward' countries by that poster The issue is child abuse (example being child marriage) and widespread cultural acceptance of same in countries like Bangladesh.

Examples given in links above .... read them.

if I was trying to maintain my innocence or genuinely believed I didn't do it, I wouldn't apologise either

I get what you are saying. However this guy admits to touching / handling the child intimately but still claims he did nothing wrong. This despite being convicted of said offence. Btw afaik it was only the journalist in the linked newspaper report who asked him was he going to apologise. Highly unlikely he would imo.

His solicitors and barrister were not able to create even a reasonable doubt as to his innocence.
He was found guilty and all if any appeals failed.

He doesn't feel he did anything wrong to his culture religion or morality .


That is not the same as being innocent

Someone convicted of murder who maintains his innocence would also say the same, I mean how can they apologise without admitting guilt?

Seems the locals in D7 dont want this guy anywhere near them, hes been ran out by a few "gentlemen".

Keep the b*stard moving and looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life.

All that happens in those cases is the Gardaí lose track of them because they keep moving around and trying to keep a low profile.

Whether we like it or not we don't have a justice system that gives life imprisionment to child rapists. We should or at least minimum sentencing .

Your point was discussed on the show and you are correct in what you are saying. Its hard to see where a solution is going to come from on this.

The public want to know the location of paedophiles and i believe its being discussed in the Dail this week, however i dont see any change coming in that regard because it would cause more problems than anything, youd have mobs marching on the homes, it would be mayhem.

It’s obvious we need to re-vamp the punishment system.
If it costs too much to imprison people, then find ways to fine criminals on top of the prison system - if the criminal is broke, then reduce state payments until the fine is paid off.
This should reduce the prison population enough so that those who we really need to lock up, remain locked up.
If the person’s state benefits aren’t enough to cover the fine, and they refuse to work for the state in menial jobs to pay off the debt, then give them a longer sentence.
The idea would be that you would be punishing those that refused to work with the system harder, but with the extra prison space given up by those who are working with the system, it should hopefully break even in terms of cost.
