You missed the point. It was stats from now vs the olden days (although exactly when that was isn't established).

The anxiety I mean is the paranoid feeling that it is going to happen to you when statistically speaking it is not likely and a little care drops it down even further.

Ah, I see. Sorry.

I'm probably like a super triggered person when it comes to these subjects tbh.

The numbers are huge because they include a variety of categories involving crimes against children.

Children are very often victims because they are vulnerable, they often don't realize that what is being done to them is a crime, because they want to please, and they are afraid of making adults angry.

We have several different programs working on addressing the problem of child abduction, child trafficking, and child abuse. Though the departments are separate we do work as a team.

It is not my intent to cause undue anxiety or angst, it is my intent to make people aware. I see way too many of these cases and the majority of the sexual assault cases involve some abuse related to use of the internet.

Drowning is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional injury death worldwide, parents are warned about the dangers of drowning and encouraged to take steps to prevent it. It is not considered fear mongering or the intentional creation of undue anxiety, to educate the parents and make them aware of the dangers that can occur when leaving a child unsupervised around water, and teaching about cyber safety should be no more anxiety producing.

I worked a number of years in shock trauma and I attended to numerous cases of drownings and near drownings, but the number of cases I have received from sexual exploitation and for technology facilitated crimes is insanely higher in numbers.

People can't fix or avoid a problem that don't know exists, and this problems exists.

Thank you. I am pleased that you found my sharing beneficial.

I understand. It is a sensitive subject for many people.

I guess it is a pet peeve of mine when people see the past through rose colored glasses and refuse to accept that things where probably worse back then.

Cav, you really lost me here. It is early and I have a long meeting waiting for me at the lab, so I am not on my A game. Maybe I will be able to understand it after coffee.
