Nearest school to the Beast of Blenheim
Mon, 27 Aug 2012 7:00p.m.
Whanganui District councillors were in Wellington today.
They went to the High Court to try and keep 65-year-old sex offender Stewart Murray Wilson from being paroled to their region.
Wilson was also in court, hoping to have his parole conditions relaxed.
He lost too, in 16 out of his 17 conditions.
Meanwhile, in Whanganui, they're preparing for his arrival. Rachel Tiffen visited the school nearest the place where Wilson will be on parole.
Watch the video for her full report.

Why is it some people have more concern for the vermin than their victims. Worse yet they don't seem worried there will be more victims. I have seen some of these sexual perverts that have some problems with right and wrong. The only answer is to keep them away from human beings for ever.

We are being a little two faced here. The guy was imprisoned and is high profile and has served his sentence.
What would the people who are objecting want this to be extended to all people that we don't like. NZ has a reputation for being forward thinking are we reverting to the hang them mentality.

There is no easy way out of this, just because he is old is no excuse. Don't forget he needs protecting from the public as any violent person could attack him just as an excuse to harm him & another crime is committed. Whatever he is no one has the right to harm him. However I would be very affraid to have him in my community or near my grandchildren. He didn't get sentence for long enough. Look at all the crimes he has committed, but what do you do with him. Electronic devises are not fool proof. A decent solution needs to be reached, not silly things like shooting him, to do that is as nearly as bad as what he has done. I don't know what the solution is butyou watch, after some time he'll probably have security relaxed because of so called "good behavour" or cost cutting etc. He is still a ticking time bomb. By the way old men do molest children I should know.

Instead of giving Stuart a GPS system why not give him an electronic dog collar. When he leaves his house or areas where he is not to go past he gets an electric shock.

This guy has done his time and the self-serving ranters like Michael Laws are breaching his human rights. I'm sure that Wilson is clever enough to know he's back in the slammer in seconds if he reoffends and isn't he quite old now? I say give him some peace and let him try to sort his life out without this stupid nimbyism. As for the comment by A Victim suggesting Wilson be used for target practice, advocating murder is stll illegal I believe.

I understand the rationale for the Beast not to be reintergrated into the Blenheim community, but it does not matter which community he is introduced to, there will always be victims of some sexual Predator living in that community.
The consequences of this are revisitation of their own fears, and memories and the feeling of being unsafe in their own community.
How do we protect these affected people from further trauma, and reassure them they will be safe in their surroundings, when we have people like The Beast being introduced to the community they live in.
Send the predator to an island in the pacific that is used for target practise save the tax payers money
