  1. Hi everybody, I'm planning my application for citizenship by descent. I was born and raised in England, living there now, my father is Australian. The problem is I'm not sure if I will pass the good character check. I was arrested and convicted of criminal damage while living in Hungary. I took a beating from the police, held my hands up and paid the fine. It was a drunken incident which started with me being assaulted by a stranger, i fought back, the guy ran away and i decided to take vengeance on his bicycle. Turns out the bike wasn't his, he was just trying to steal it as he fled. I felt really bad for the guy who's bike I smashed and apologized to him when I paid the fine. It was stupid but it happened and I wish it hadn't. I also have a spent conviction for shoplifting when i was 15 (I'm 23 now). This all sounds pretty bad now that I've written it down, but I'm not a mean person and I'm not a threat to anybody. What do you guys think? Will this stop me from getting my citizenship? Right now moving to Oz is my only ambition for the future and I'm just hoping this stupid incident won't come back to haunt me. Any responses will be greatly appreciated, thanks guys and girls x
  2. This really got me thinking last week. In our local paper a convicted child molester was released only to rape a 10 year old girl 6 months after being released. Can these people ever be released back into society after being convicted. Is it just to much of a risk that they just might rape or even murder another child weeks, month, years after being released, can we honestly take the risk they will not re offend. I honestly think a child sex offender must be locked up till he dies, we cannot take a chance with an innocent child's life. Do you agree or disagree.
