the 30th anniversary of the Sheree Beasley murder is only a couple of years away. Hard to imagine what she'd be like today at thirty-three...

Happening too much, another good samaritan gone to the rescue of a 7 year old girl being sexually assaulted in a toilet was stabbed. Apparently, with a scalpel, he's lucky to be alive.

Latest article I read drops the surname Sampieri, can’t find any article with his name listed but could be behind a paywall with a couple of google searches. Not the best source, but read on Facebook he is a registered offender currently out on parole

Yeh he was. Urgh ...

Anthony Sampieri, 54, allegedly attacked the young girl in the toilets of the premises before stabbing a 46-year-old man who intervened.

"This offender was on parole and was subject to a number of strict conditions," Mr Elliott said in a statement.

Just wondering if someone can give me some clarification.
A mate of mine was telling me that there has been a new law quietly past through parliament that gives the power to hold serious violent offenders and serious sexual offenders in prison past there release date.
Is it true?
Is it Victoria only?

South Australia has had it a while

If you choose to serve your full time and not engage in any recommended programs you CAN be deemed unreformed

If you have offended in a similar manner more than once after already serving a prison sentence for a similar offence you can be held

Victorian police searching for three teenagers believed to have been involved in an aggravated home invasion earlier this month have been granted permission by the Children's Court to release their names and pictures.

Detective Acting Inspector Brett Kahan said police had been searching for the three boys since "a particularly concerning" break-in at 5:40am on November 17 in Wyndham Vale in Melbourne's west.

The victims of the incident were elderly and faced demands for their car, using "weapons sourced from the house", he said.

He said he could not go into further particulars of the crime, when asked whether a gun was pointed at the chest of one of the victims, as she got out of bed.

"Without being specific to this home invasion I think any crime committed with the use of a firearm is hugely concerning," he said.

Two people have already been charged with aggravated home invasion and theft of a motor vehicle, while Wayward Taskforce detectives have named the remaining three suspects as Deng Kuol, 17, Bafal Gatluak and Mading Nyolic, both aged 16.

"They are actively avoiding police apprehension, they were part of the search warrants that we executed within days of the home invasion," he said.

"We believe them to be still together at times and that they are associating with others in and around the Collingwood, Sunshine and Melton areas," he said.

Detective Acting Inspector Kahan asked Collingwood residents to be vigilant.

He said seeking permission from the Children's Court to release the youth's names was an unusual step, not taken lightly by police.

Under Victorian law, it is illegal to identify children involved in criminal matters unless permission is granted by the president of the Children's Court or a magistrate, subject to specific requirements including the risk to community safety.

"This isn't a step that we would always take but I think it demonstrates the commitment of the taskforce to bring these three into custody," he said.

"We would encourage them to bring themselves into custody and surrender themselves … they certainly know that they're wanted and they certainly know that we're looking for them."

Police have asked anyone who sees the teenagers not to approach them but to call triple zero or Crime Stoppers.

How practical would it be to indefinitely monitor via GPS, all parolees previously convicted of a crime of violence or paedophilia/sex crimes etc?

Have they completed their parole or just those on parole?

I think bracelets are a reactionary device used to placate people. Better and cheaper to develop a tracking app for a phone. Person cant change phone company , must report phone numbers and put app on phone. This can be better utilised to track an offender and regular audits carried out.

It’s been in place for sex offenders for quite some time. The recent change is to include serious violent offenders

I'm floored that they found Jayme Closs alive today. I thought she was dead for sure. It will be interesting to see who the suspect is who kidnapped her.

Same! I started a thread on it. 21yo guy apparently had her held in a cabin about 10 miles away.

Not much info yet but it might be he killed her parents to take her.

EDIT: Conflicting info, she was about 70 miles away.
