This is good as long as it is only convicted looters and not accused looters.  They should do this in the US.

Why stop there? Please add those convicted of drunk driving, child molesters/pornographers, corruption and bribery.

In Ohio those convicted of a  have these red and yellow license plates.

"Some have wondered if it is safe to publish the names at this time. There is a significant amount of anger online right now that might lead some to behave badly toward the convicted individuals."

 

You're giving them an out, letting them be the victim if you do this.  We should do that in this country, perhaps it might curtail some crime.  I say some because many people just don't care.

I like this idea. Justice should be intertwined with society to add a shame aspect.

Good. If there are any Brits with balls left, they should organize vigilante mobs and go after these people. Drag THEM out of THEIR homes and beat them with American baseball bats.

I agree with you about the rioters, but I wouldn't go that far. All these people were convicted, so I'd take it on faith that they're being punished appropriately. Your 'vigilante mob' would amount to nothing more than a second riot. It's hard to condemn the rioters for violently taking things into their own hands when you want to deal with them by violently taking things into your own hands. This is why we have the rule of law in the first place. No civilized people likes anarchy.
