Quote# 140429

We're not talking about wishing something was legal in a vast generic sense, we're talking about someone who is responsible for the care of small children telling you he would like to rape them. You're saying this is a job he should be permitted to keep?

Having no reason to believe that he would act on his desires or otherwise commit a crime, yes.

If there is no reason for YOU, personally, to mistrust him, then of course there's no reason not to tell his superiors, and the parents of the children under his control. Go ahead, and see what the reaction will be. If you don't and he molests a child, that would make you complicit in his crime. And if the law or the parents catch up with you and demand to know why you didn't say anything, let's see how well your excuses work then.

Doubting Thomas

What part of him saying he'd like to rape children makes you think he wouldn't act on his desires? People, especially those who commit crimes, tend to lie. And even if he believes he has no intention in raping any of the children he's caring for, what happens when the temptation becomes too great?

Jimmy Savile.

After... that, give millions of British people just one good reason why they should change their attitudes - thus they voting for MPs who recently strengthened anti-Paedophilia laws - to those who so much as think the way he did?

My question is "why?"

There are easier, and better paid, jobs that don't involve working with kids. On top of having to be surrounded by temptation.

Why would a non-acting nonce WANT a job with kids?
