i don't think anybody should be named and shamed. thats just me. after a conviction the local community knows whats what - i'm sure they have been at the trial.
the law states when someone has served their conviction he/she is a free man/woman.
i can't think of anybody who has been wrongly convicted of a rape claim in ireland but of course they all claim to be innocent
if there is any small doubt in dna evidence it goes in favour of the accused.
the larry murphy case strikes a chord here. he was hounded by the media after he served his sentence. there was uproar! why? because unfortunately his case got in the media. there are plenty of cases like him who get no exposure and walk out the back door after release with no problems. so its seems to be a case of what is in the media at the time. the roscommon incest case? and trust me plenty more like it! does anybody know who they are and when they will get released? nope!(dosent matter -they are people and are treated the same- agreed jail is no deterrant but thats the way the liberal society is - treat them no different! of course they are on they are on their own landings and only mix with their kind as they cannot be put into general population - they have a grand life ) there are plenty of people here in ireland convicted as rapists but if the media is barred from the court why do some people get exposure more than others?
its quite unfair when you step outside the box. i wouldn't treat larry murphy any different from any other sex offender just because he was a high profile case and theres lots more going on than the general public is aware of sadly.
good point re footballers - why are they spread all over the paper? surely they have a better legal team or can sue the tabloid red tops?
of course they can afford the best legal team. so why don't they????
edit - the free legal aid team is just as lucrative and give the same results.
