Britain provides yet another example of why the last people you would want advising lawmakers are pointy-headed liberal establishment “experts”:
The government could face legal action if it continues to ban sex offenders from working with children, according to research published today.
A report by a family law expert argues that some sex offenders should be allowed to adopt or foster children, and claims that the current blanket ban is discriminatory.
“Sex offenders shouldn’t all be tarred with the same brush,” said Helen Reece at the London School of Economics, who wrote the report.
If we can have Muslims on the Homeland Security Advisory Council, why can’t the British have sex criminals working with and adopting children? The important thing is not to tar all fiends with the same brush.
Sex offenders have been prohibited from working with, and adopting, children since 2006, when measures were put in place to prevent a recurrence of the murder of schoolgirls Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells by school caretaker Ian Huntley in Soham.
But raped and murdered children are a small price to pay for advancing the cause of political correctness.
