The people who have a justifiable need to be forgotten are ones who were unjustly accused. For example, someone might have been arrested for downloading child porn, but what actually happened was the person's router had no password and allowed his pervert neighbor to steal wireless service and download child porn. The person was stupid and incompetent, but not a pervert. But psychopaths such as Robert Thompson and Jon Venables must not be given the right to be forgotten.
