"This is just so frustrating. No one wants him anywhere except jail."

I don't know how big Ansan is, but judging from prior articles, it seems that a lot of people knew who 'Nayoung' was. A lot of the probably watched her grow from a toddler to elementary schooler and cried with her and her family when that man did that horrible, inhumane thing to her. They probably were there to help her with the aftermath. Who would want him to come back after all her did and especially after 'Nayoung' and her family are moving away like they're the one who did wrong. No one would want him, yeah the government can't do much since there's a lot of criminals, but for one this well known, why can't they just restrict him from coming to this city? He hurt a CHILD, he raped A CHILD! No sane parent would be okay with him walking around the same town as their kid. And about surveillance cameras... if the person looking at them dozes off for 1 minute or looks the wrong way for only a few seconds, a tragedy could occur again.

The money spent in security, survaillance and all of that would be better spent keeping him inside jail. Which parent is going to feel safe or their children safe with that predator near by? They will turn hostages to the fear he brings to that town.
