And yet still no sexual predators list…….

Sounds like a good thing but also very easy to circumvent (by using a pseudonym after getting caught and put on the list)

There are lots of people out there who have no business having kids or taking care of them. Those poor kids!

Its a step in the right direction, I look forward to more lists of offenders of other kinds in the future.

Better than nothing, but much more needs to be done. My wife is a daycare teacher. I teach at a high school that starts the training for kindergarten and daycare teachers. I also teach at the affiliated kindergarten. I have a lot of respect for those good teachers. They do a lot of hard work. Get rid of the scum that somehow gets around the system.

Anybody who has been subjected to administrative action for sexual assault or other abuse should never be allowed anywhere near children again in their lives. Full stop.

What about abusive employers of baby sitters? They must also be investigated!

Next they need to do the same with pedophile teachers. No more payoffs. Those sickos need to be stopped.

I often view this country's government as an abusive babysitter itself, so I fear this info sharing will have little effect.

And nevermind their privacy, let's get their faces, not blurred, all over the place for parents to see. Silly that they always cover up people's (criminals) faces here on TV. Someone gets caught on video stealing or doing something illegal and yet let's make sure to respect their privacy, lol dumb! I vote for a Cersei Lannister walk of shame for these sickos in the article.

My thoughts exactly! And no one here seems to want to discuss that point. It’s sad.

Call me old-fashioned but unless you have kids of your own, a male should never be a babysitter or take care of other people's kids. That would bring the problem to a stop, a list won't do anything.

If you allow only males with kids to babysit, it will bring the problem to a stop?

Too little, too late. All it took was just one of these sickos to have access to 20 boys before anything was done. Imagine how many others have committed similar crimes, and how many children they each have affected? Also, does this mean the list is solely for local government officials to peruse? It's not available to the public, like parents who might want to be sure of the credentials of the babysitter they are hiring? Just trying to clarify. Overall, while a (small) step in the right direction, it really is too little, too late.

That's great but what is disciplinary action. Not a mention of criminal charges or prison time.
