The Dennis Ferguson saga has been running for a few days now. He is a pedophile who kidnapped and sexual assaulted three children. But he spent 14 years in gaol for his crime. The outcry against him is understandable, but I ask “if not Ryde where?”. He has to reside somewhere, and yes even pedophiles have rights, at least after being released from prison. Parents are rightly concerned for their children and their emotional reaction is understandable but I expect a more cool headed response from politicians. They are supposed to be community leaders, and if they call for him to be removed from his current home I think they should let us know where they would place him.
