Before I disappear, let me
Before I disappear, let me leave you with a short rant. This is exactly the reason why "Sarah’s law" must never be allowed. It is the responsibility of our courts and justice system to prove guilt and punish suspected paedophiles, and, whilst that system may need review, it is clear that mob justice should never be tolerated, condoned, encouraged or facilitated. And it is my belief that "Sarah’s law" would have that effect. I’m not even sure it would protect any children, as so many paedophile acts are carried out by persons without previous convictions, even by family members and trusted friends.
