@Builder,

Took a the necessary six thousand votes in an online poll instigated by the Courier Mail, to get her to see just how important an issue this is. Only took ten days or so to get the required votes. A clear win for People Power. Smile

Full story here.
PROMINENT Queenslanders and victim support groups who stood united in their call for GPS tracking to monitor the state's most dangerous sex offenders have applauded the State Government for finally committing to stricter scrutiny.

It comes as more than 6000 Queenslanders signed The Courier-Mail's petition calling for the State Government to roll out the technology as soon as possible.

Bruce Morcombe, father of missing Sunshine Coast teenager Daniel, supported the State Government's decision to listen to the public.

"Obviously, we see this as a good thing because what has been available to date, we just haven't been able to get right," he said.

"People can identify that these people have rights, as we all do, but there is also an emotional side here where people tend to say, once you have a couple of strikes, it's bad luck and throw away the key."

@Builder,
Excellent outcome in this case. Attorney General Paul Lucas has stuck to his guns, and kept this serial predator behind bars, hopefully for good.

NOTORIOUS sex offender Robert John Fardon will remain behind bars indefinitely after Queensland's attorney general won an appeal to keep him in jail.

The Court of Appeal on Friday set aside an earlier court order to release Fardon - who has spent more than 30 years in jail for sex offences against children and women.

In May, Supreme Court Justice Julie Dick ordered Fardon should be released under strict supervision, but that order was stayed while the attorney general's appeal was heard.

In a unanimous ruling by the Court of Appeal on Friday, Chief Justice Paul de Jersey said Fardon should be detained in custody for an indefinite term for care, control or treatment.
