Community Protection listing sex offenders

Just this week, the Western Australian Government launched the nation’s first website publishing the names and faces of known child sex offenders.

The website has been designed as a tool for parents to keep their children safe.

This issue has raised questions of whether this is ethical and whether it will cause problems like social exclusion for these listed offenders.

Should sex offenders be publicly listed? And will this cause problems?

Angus Randall spoke to the President of the South Australian Law Society, Ralph Bonnig about the new sex offenders website.
