I'm sure plenty of local authorities have housed plenty of paedophiles near plenty of schools. Strangely enough, I've never heard of one being sued for doing so. Duty of care would be hard to establish I suppose, considering our glorious gardaí have no such duty. To me, housing doesn't really contribute to the factors that inspire rape. Generally speaking that is, there's all sorts of f*cked up out there.
Most folks on the housing lists are families. Families don't have criminal convictions. Indeed the constitution (in one of its more lucid moments) sees the family as being the fundamental unit of society, whose rights are unassailable. Guilt by association, collective punishment, particularly from racial hatred, are to be despised and no amount of flowery language will change that.
