My personal opinion is that paedophilia is sexual attraction to per-pubescent children and thus not really relevant to the case in this thread. In general terms though, Iím largely in agreement with your position as youíve now presented it (though my preference regarding crime in general is rehabilitation and deterrence over raw punishment). Determining the specifics is the difficult part though, where everyone has opinions that few are really qualified to offer (myself included).
however, if I knew for a fact that a convicted pedophile was living in my ghetto, and my neighbors had children, I would inform the parent/s of those children and not say anything to the former offender, I would allow the parents of the child or children to handle the situation.
I do know for a fact that the offenders released into my ghetto have to follow certain guidelines, terms of their release, dictated by the state. One of those stipulations is that the former offenders have a NO CONTACT order with other tenants, and, the visitors of the former offenders also have a NO CONTACT stipulation, with other tenants, which has been violated numerous times, and the former offenders have been removed by the state and re-incarcerated for those violations.
Something as simple as knocking on another tenants door asking to borrow items,
e.g., one knocked on my door at 10:30 p.m. and asked to borrow a screwdriver.
