Dennis in ‘candyland’

15 September, 2009

Dennis Ferguson’s latest location has been revealed and unsurprisingly that community is concerned. A mother of two says:

“In daylight saving in the summer, this street, it would be like a candy shop for him; there are children everywhere.”

Really? Well then, it must follow that this would be so for all the unreported or unconvicted child sex offenders in the area too. Are you worried about them? We are not going to lock these offenders up forever or kill them so they have to live somewhere. Do the residents complaining have any other solutions other than not in my back yard?

The ABC reports that Shaun, a resident, said:

“No one’s directly rung us and said ‘you know what, we stuffed up, we’re sorry – we could have gone about this a lot better, informed you guys and maybe he may have been accepted, but I still doubt it’.”

So do I Shaun, especially after you say this:

“He doesn’t deserve to live in society – he deserves to be outcast for the rest of his life.”

“His relaxation as an elderly gentleman is over – he needs to start serving the community in the right way and that’s by disappearing.”

Brett Collins from Justice Action states what society seems unable to accept:

“Sex offending is in fact part of the general community.”

Update. Typically, the NSW opposition is trying to outbid the government on who is tougher on law and order but not to be out done Nathan Rees has called an urgent meeting to try and get Ferguson moved on.

Not only is Dennis in ‘candyland’ but he is has been allegedly touching toys, and kids play with the toys – get it? I know it says allegedly but don’t let that bother you as News Limited have never been wrong before.

While the government is seeking legal advice Sean Killgallon is fighting on:

“Today we intend to up the ante.”

“He will be going, there’s no ifs or buts about it. Mr Borger stated it on the record.”

I don’t like your chances Dennis. Looks like you might be back on a train to Queensland again.

The ABC has spoken to Ferguson.

    Ileum, just because a sex offender has not been reported or detected is totally irrelevant to peoples concerns about this particular sex offender.

    I am not advocating vigilante or any other action that would cause this particular person any harm.
    However, this excuse for a human being should be incarcerated for the rest of his natural.I mean, how many chances does he want or indeed expect from society?

    Phil(l?), it may be irrelevant about their concern for Ferguson but would they not be equally concerned if their were other sex offenders in their area? Better the devil you know? Did you read the other post here on Ferguson?

    He has offended and been punished then placed under a DPSOA order (maybe he still is). I think we have to remember that he isn’t doing anything wrong and if we don’t usually punish people for things they might do – aside form indefinite sentencing.

      Well ileum I am certainly not suggesting he be locked up for something he may do.My point is, he should be still in jail for his past offences.

      That some learned gentleman some where has decided his punishment/rehabilitation, does not mean everyone else is wrong in wanting him locked away for the rest of his life.He is obviously from watching him in action via the media, a troubled individual.I’m no expert, but the nearest metal hospital may be the place he should be?

        Phil, the learned gentleman can only hand down a sentence from precedent based on the provisions provided by the legislature and the seriousness of the offence, surely. But I guess that is what you are saying, what other offence could be worse or more vile.

        I think the problem with a life sentence (or death penalty) is where do you draw the line and decide what offences are worse than others. If Ferguson is sentenced to life then how do we punish a child sex offender who kills their victims?

        My main concern with the attention on Ferguson is that it enforces the misguided perception that their kids are most at risk of sexual abuse from scary looking strangers.

        I think his mannerisms that you refer to is the reason that the media love him as he looks and plays ‘the part’.

        I may put up another post on this guy later as even Hetty Johnson (Bravehearts) has been saying some sensible things.
