Although I'm not interested in politics, even in the activities of prefectural government in my town,
yesterday I was impressed with a new ordinance soon taken effect in Osaka.
The new ordinance
can coercewill require child molesters to report their addresses and contact information after leaving prisons,and in case that they neglect this, they will be purnished.
However, there are some points concerning this ordinance that I think should be revised in the near future.
First of all, this revelation is adapted with only the offenders who molest children who are under 18.
Needless to say, all offenders, whether they offend children or adults, in short, regardless of victim's ages and sex, should be imposed this duty.
Second, The term of the revelation of their information is limited only to 5 years. It's too short.
Personally, the exposure should be continued until they die , because I believe bad, nasty propensity will never be redressed, simply say, there will be a lot of possibility that they repeat crimes over and over.
At the risk of sounding harsh, once becoming sex offenders, I think they don't have the right to spend normal lives like ordinary people.
Third, the penalty in case they fail to adhere to this rule is at most 50,000yen, which is too small.
For me, it won't be expensive even if the fine is 1,000,000 yen.
Taking all of above into account, this new ordinance is still lenient.
Sex offenders should be disciplined more
tightlyseverely, because they are nothing but the scum of society.
