Subject: RE: BS: Huntley Guilty
The thing is, I'm not that concerned about the individual failings of Maxine Carr. I am concerned about the danger to vulnerable people that is involved in the present system of vetting. Children's homes, care workers, schools...Most of the time when things go wrong, it's low profile stuff that only gets attention in the local paper.

If this horrible case can focus attention on that issue, and get things improved, that will be one positive thing coming out of it.

Thread drift continues - I agree that fining motorists for speeding should not take up the time of the police. There have to be better ways of doing it. An dthen they could spend more time on chasing criminals, including those who are driving dangerously in other ways.

If there are motorists who voluntarily lay themselves open to a fine or disqualification by going over the limit, and that can pay for more hidden speed cameras, or some sort of tachometer equivalent in every car, good. And if there's money over to pay for other things, that's good too, though I'd sooner they just drove slower.
