From the BBC I can understand the Aussies deporting this creature, but the knowledge that... ...doesn't fill me with any confidence that he will be prevented from re-offending, bearing in mind the failed attempts to keep âhome grownâ known and previously convicted sex predators from re-offending on their release. Excell has committed and been convicted of a further paedophiliac offence upon each of his 3 releases from prison. It seems strange that the state of Western Australia once considered him such a danger that they vowed never to release him, but now are doing so on what appear to be compassionate grounds because of his ill health. Why should a four-times convicted child-sex attacker be given compassionate leave to live out the rest of their life in freedom when they've done irreparable damage to so many children and their families. The state of Western Australia is content to release him, despite rating his chances of re-offending as "low to moderate", but that is far too high a risk IMHO. I'm also uncomfortable with the politics behind the decision as the Australians knew that upon his release they would deport him from their shores, but (and I know someone will put me right on this if I've got it wrong) the fact that they've released him means that we can't lock him up unless he's caught offending here. I think that this decision stinks as it feels like the Australians have washed their hands of a problem and won't have to deal with the repercussions if he does re-offend.
