Unfortunately, I don't really care why sexual predators do what they do. I don't need to know.
I just don't want my children harmed. That is it. Blaming the internet or Cinemax or Yugio really means nothing to me. While examining the foundations of moral corruption is a reputable and honorable endeavor, it will not put my children out of immediate danger. Will the continual bombardement of mass advertising designed to entice our desire for instant gratification ever stop? Will compassion for others ever take precident over turning a buck? Will drunken parents stop neglecting there despairing children and decide to set a good example? No way.

When I was young I was taught to trust and believe others, to be honest and trust-worhty myself. As I have grown older I have found that less and less people are to be trusted. As far as I know all of you people could be "wierdos". As time goes on, most people I meet seem to be liars and self serving biggots.

Please take no offense, but my children are number one. The rest of you people can p*ss off. I can trust no one. Do I care why any one may harm my children? Hell no, I just have to be vigilant and protect my family. If my own government finds that some lazy pot head who never hurt any one is potentially more dangerous than some sick deviant predator, why should I trust any one? It is obviously up to me to see that my family is kept safe.

Sorry for ranting...

Enjoyed reading all of the comments but one in particular got me thinking. How many more people think that it's ok to touch a child in a sexual way at age 12 and up ? Pretty Sick.

A childs mind is still forming at a great rate. If you interrupt their phyc with trash, selfish sex crimes and other crap that is what will eventually come out of this child in one form or another. And it usully doesn't come out in a postive fashion. Their lives are destroyed. It's bad enough that a grown adult female would have to go through a rape. And we can see the destruction that this causes in victims at a consentual age let alone a child. I child doesn't know how to process this action. They believe that it's their fault that the offendor did this act to them. Unless they get help rightaway this will be a huge hurdle to overcome later inlife. By that time they have already become tanted and they might have destroyed others relationships as well as their own. Might have abuse problems with own kids some day. The list goes on and on and on.

What I am trying to say is that the offendor is already on to the next victim while the prior victim spends there life in rehab trying to get better.

It's very sad. I know that this has been gowing on for years and that is ver obvious. But it's pretty aparent that this is becoming an on stopable epidemic.

What are we going to do about this ? Sit back and let just let it happen ?
What are the laws going to do to protect our children ?
What are the govt. officials going to do ?

I heard that their are talks about the probation system is much to blame becuse they don't track these offendors like they should. They are out and about in no time. Where are they ? Where do they live ? Where do they work ? Do they work with children ? Do they work in a hospitol with children ? Scary but true !

Hope some more ideas and thoughts come out !

Oy ! It's been a while since I have been on and here we go again.

We just released Michael Jackson ?

And now we know we can go to Aruba and sexually assault or murder someone and as long as their is no evidence left over ( No Body ) we will be set free to do it again !

What a country !

Here we go again !

It's only a couple of days into July and look what has happened.

www.foxnews.com...

This is the story of Shasta and Dylan in Idaho. They found Shasta last night in Denny's with that sick F___ !

When will the government do something ? When will they step in and take a little more control over these already convicted sex offendors when they let them back out. Why do we even let them back out ?

What is the True percentage of sex offendors being rehablitated ? 10% at best ?

How many more kids need to be abducted before we do something ?

Truth !

Easy solution. Seeing as how they are of no use to society why not ship them all to Iraq or Afghanistan and let the soldiers come home. If they die in combat oh well (did I mention they shouldn't get any formal training as well). Same goes for priests who molest kids. Just get rid of these scumbags.

They should do the same for people who lead police on chases....automatic 10 years in jail or goto Iraq/Iran your choice.

Yeah, why stop with police chases? Let's just line up people who smoke marijuana and shoot them all, same for anyone who gets a DWI. In fact let's just implant brainchips into everybody and get it over with.


Don't get me wrong, I'm not against anything that's done to a sex offender. They're talking about implanting chips into sex offenders so that they can be tracked. Sounds good, but they're also accepting volunteers for the chip as well. There have been people that have done so already

The Jacobs, who live in Boca Raton, Florida, first heard about the microchip in a television news report.

Derek stood up and said, " I want to be the first kid to be implanted with the chip ."

Derek, an eighth-grader, fantasizes about merging humans and machines . So Leslie called up Palm Beach-based ADS and offered her family as guinea pigs once the microchip is approved for testing by the FDA. Since the VeriChip was announced in December, the company has been bombarded with queries from people interested in the device, Bolton said. "Right now we have over 2,000 kids who have emailed, wanting to have the chip implanted," he said. "They think it's cool."

So what's next, the average citizen being forced to?

Cuz last time I checked many innocent people have been killed by those same chases. I know in America its all about reality tv (provided a celebrity is in the vehicle). Pot heads....they're already mentally gone anyways.

I think that all the publicity surrounding the sex offenders cases in the news here as late are a good thing on one hand. It is bringing awarness to the parents of children and hopefully makes it easier for them to talk with their kids and how to act in order to not become a victim. On the other hand, it appears that with the explosion of the internet and chat rooms, it is exposing more and more children to these lunitics and children being children are bound to screw-up and be mislead. The victims of child sexual assults are those children whose parents have little time for them in their everyday life and they are left wanting affection and attention. Mom and dad are always at work and that means the children must be forced to grow up to fast and usually alone unless their parents make this topic clear to them at an early age. Was it Regan who said "Trust and Verify?"

Brill-

I like your idea ! Lets ship them out to Iraq immediately !!


All kidding aside someone sayed something about a comparison of a pot smoker to a sex offendor ? This is the reason that our legal system is so jacked up !

Lets keep a pot smokers in jail for ten years for growing a plant for his own consumption in his own house on his own property and we will let adults violate and sexually abuse other inocent victims ( adults and children) and let them back out in society after a slap on the wrist ? To do it once again !

Oh Yeah- Just because alchohol is a bigger problem in the US than pot would ever become to be in destroying society at will- Lets just ignore this fact too-Because our government is profiting highly in this regard. Therfore Alchohol is ok ? Sheeesh !

Anyway- Something needs to be done. It is a growing epidemic and it's only getting worse. Any other ideas ?

I heard something on the new the other day where a molestor had molested over 30,000 victims and had the names of all of them with dates ?
Does anyone have any info onn this creep ?

I enjoyed your post and your theory on the evolutionary "source" for this behavior.

I believe the internet has not necessarily "made" more pedophiles- it just gives them a community and the opportunity for anonymous and safe child-trolling (my own term!).

In closing, your logic seems to mate with mine in a consensual and legal manner.

I applaud your strength in defending your carnal treasure! Seriously though, 16 or 17 is my guess at the average age of hymen breakage, but 12 is too young (I think the original poster could have been sarcastic).

I completely understand where you are coming from, though I admittedly do not have kids of my own.

I implore you not to distrust everyone you meet. I believe most people are genuinely good, just confused.

Just pot-heads brill? Why not just round up everyone who disagrees with you? Better yet, we can get train cattle cars to transport them to our super happy fun camps! Now featuring new brick ovens!

I think some marijuana would do you good.

Truthisouthere

You are right on my friend. Here is the statictic you asked for:



An extensive study by the Department of Justice published in 2003 shows a recidivism rate for child molesters of just 3.3 percent in the first three years. In almost half of the original offenses, the victim was the prisoner's relative.

It's obvious that I've struck a nerve with a few of the pro-ganja folks here. My original post merely stated pot-heads were mentally gone so why bother with them not to send them to a war zone. I still stand by sending the pedophiles to Iraq though. I know they're the skidmarks in the underwear of society......unless you think otherwise and that's your prerogative


I have no idea why the discussion brought up ovens??? Perhaps all that pot has done you good ?

Not pro-ganja, just anti-fool.

I wouldn't really mind sending pederasts into the meat grinder.

Not only will we kill Iraqi civilians, now we can molest their kids. Ouch.

I'll stop this child-like bickering now. My apologies, brill.

Back to the topic:

There was an interesting news program on last night about Megan's Law and it's ineffectiveness. The list puts an 18 yr. old who sleeps with his 17 yr. old girlfriend in the same category as a 30 yr. old who tampers with a 9 yr. old. That is just insane, but politicians can't commit career suicide and vote against it.

Also, I stumbled across some interesting numbers that contradict the DOJ's figures for recidivism rates



Elizabeth Alexander's comprehensive meta-analysis of 7,753 sex offenders found reoffense rates of 10.9% among treated sex offenders and 18.5% among untreated offenders. Lita Furby, whose work prompted the popular belief that "nothing works" to reduce sex offender recidivism, found overall reoffense rates of 12.7% among the 15,361 people she researched. Most recently, a national report commissioned by the Office of Canada's Solicitor General found overall reoffense rates of 13.4%. Thus, it appears that only a minority of identified sex offenders reoffend. Over 80% never offend again, almost the opposite of what many politicians claim, and substantially lower than for many other types of crime.


66.165.94.98...

I can't speak for this websites credibility, but it seems legitimate.

I often wondered about that. In reference to the categories of sex offendors. THERE ARE NONE ! Like you said they are just slammed together into one group. This is a huge problem and I think that this is the first place that needs reform. There is no wonder that the real offendors keep doing what they are doing and are back out on the streets in no time.

I heard on the news yesterday that in Arizona there is over a thousand registered offendors and they have no idea where they reside ? This is the first state to admit this. I wonder how many more states there are like this and what their percentages are as far as registered offendors that they cannot locate because they don't ever register in the next state or town where they have decided to make more victims.

Arizona also stated that they have over 14,000 known offendors as of now. How many un-registered ? How many per day have their first occurance. What makes a person cross the line ? Where they mistreated as a child ? Did they learn this behavior ? So many questions that the government now has too and needs to research so that we can get a handle on this situation.

I think I need to find out the numbers of offendors and compare it to the population to get an accurate percentage of offendors in my state. I think I will be shocked !

I have heard the talk about the GPS units being locked onto these offendors so that there is never a doubt where they are. I wonder how long it will take for one state to adopt this and finance this and how long it will take nationwide. It's the only way that this will work. They will no-doubt need different catagories for this and whom will monitor. This sounds like a huge expense for the tax payers but it's neccessary. It's a bad nightmare is what this is. The more people that get abussed the more abusers there are living among us in the long term.

I think there also needs to be more attention dedicated to the pedaphiles on the internet. I know that traps are set all the time to catch individuals looking at child pornography. It makes me wonder how many individuals in a certain region there are that look at this type of crap. Then I would like to compare that to the number of offendors in that same region.

Sounds like I have some reserach to do here.

Any other interesting ideas on how to handle this epidemic ?

Any other interesting facts ?

Let me know.

Thanks,
Truth

It has always been this bad.

statistically by a sex offender's first arrest he OR she has sexually molested or assaulted 70 children.

Think about that for a moment. 70, and the average first arrest is by age 28 (source DSM IV)

Why does it seem like more these days than ever before?

Because the news people can't make you watch their programs and commercials by telling you about terror alerts. We're immune. But they can shock you into watching to uncover sex offenders!

So why are the laws so lenient if we all revile them so?

Because a-hole judges and juries think that if a man in his middle years has forced sex with an eight year old girl, what's the harm? She'll grow up and have sex anyways. So what if it was eight years earlier than the average age a girl first has consentual sex, before puberty, and against her will? They think she'll get over it once she starts having normal sex.

What monster thinks that? Oh, yeah, the same that thinks if a woman was raped she was asking for it. And they're out there.

Don't like what's happening? Okay, if you're not too jaded by the shadow government and NWO thing, write your state congress about tougher laws. Write judges. Don't ignore jury summonses and give these bastards the maximum sentence.

Personally, if I ran things, I'd put them on an ice floe and let them die at sea.

I studied psychology but left it when I learned as much as 30% of my private practice would be devoted to these pervs. And I learned a horrible, horrible fact. You can make a klepto stop stealing, make a depressed person feel better, but you can never cure the sick urges of a pedophile. Cut off their genitals and they'll just ue their hands or an object. Paralyze them from the neck down and they'll still collect and trade porn and try to make kids do things to each other while they watch.

You can't cure a pedophile but you can prevent one. Just never tell kids sex is dirty or wrong, and if your child has been abused, get them help and prosecute the bastard that did it. And always use the web to find offenders in your area and let your neighbors know who's living by YOUR kids.

If all else fails I suppose vigilante justice might work.

Ok-

I am seeing more and more evidence that supports evil people cannot be cured from their evil doings. If we already know this why do we as free people put up with this crap ? Another words are we turning our heads and not feeding this info to the right people within our govt. so that there can be changes ? Or are we just to scared to open pandoras box ?

Someone mentioned the first time someone gets caught he or she has already commited quit a few offenses. That's good knowledge. If we look at the percentage of pedophiles within our own country and multiply it by the number of average offenses that they have committed I think that we would take a closer look at this ? I would hope so !

It's always a shame that many people need to be hurt, assaulted, molested, raped, murdered, etc.... before a law is put into place.

Our broken down society is producing these people at an alarming rate
and it's only going to get worse if we the people don't start getting involved.

I hope and pray that we do before anything terrible happens to one of our own.

I saw a very sick statistic at work just today (I work in a hospital). Some experts did some studies, and they concluded that approximately 1 in 4 people are sexually abused at some point during their childhood. Not necessarily an ongoing thing; this includes people who may have only suffered a single attack, but still, this is a terrible statistic. And so much of this stuff goes unreported, too; I wonder how many innocent children are suffering out there...

I think that YES this sickness starts from an early age...Someone said to me once that the problem in this world is that too many stupid people are having babies. The thing that us americans lack in our culture is the lack of family unity,sending the mother to work just to make ends meet....sad really...without family unity you have no foundation...and thus ignorant and immoral products of society such as these "predetors'. believe me, ive seen it in my family.



system of a down- its a violent pornograghy, chokin chicks and sodomy...The kind of you see on your TV!

I can tell you that this poll you speak of is probably true...as i am a victim myself...and countless others. he went to jail by the way and a hard time finding a job(i dont know about nowadays). I forgive him now but i can see how this corruption of the mind starts out. Its not healthy in my opinion to not be busy or alone for long lengths of time for children....thats why i think that when u choose to have a child u must devote ur whole life to that child...because if u dont u have what we have here today a screwed up world(not speaking of all the neglected as i was neglected....not seeking a pity party here as i understand that everyone takes lifes experiances differently)Peace
