We’ve got to recognise that the recruiters are predatory characters going after kids.
Prof Barton told the Today show, “it’s a low level but persistent threat that we’ve got to deal with. We’ve got to recognise that the recruiters are predatory characters going after kids.”
He said he understood there were concerns about “anything that smacks of big brother surveillance”, in schools but the deradicalisation program was worthwhile.
