Judges doing the best they can
From the news article I read, even though he was acquitted (query - different to 'found not guilty'?) the guy (not interested enough to track down his name) still convinced all of the judges he has faced that he was an asshole,
"I have found Mr O’Neill to be a vain, manipulative and grandstanding individual who sought to persuade me that black is white and used the valuable time of professionals to describe sexual fantasies he may or may not have. There is a narcissistic streak to Mr O’Neill, who does trouble me in terms of further contact he may have with other people."
-with a similar attitude to women as SatNad to Windows users, and although he couldnt be locked up the judge required measures to be in place to make it easier to apprehend him once he did get around to raping/murdering some woman.
Obviously this isnt satisfactory to any of the parties involved,
- the guy is inconvenienced in his sexual predations,
-the police have to spend resources monitoring him,
-the woman still gets murdered.
Even the retrial judge agrees the SRO is "frankly unpoliceable", and something different will be worked out as the circus proceeds.
