You know the part that doesn't make sense about this to me.
It's supposed to be an assurance of manhood and divine trust.
When non-moustache man sees a moustache man he is supposed to bow his head with respsect and know automatically that he is a man's man, and not a pedo child rapist.
And yet he is a pedo child rapist.
Is that supposed to be a serious post? May I ask how old you are to actually think that makes one slight bit of sense? If you are joking then I think you might want to consider if this is the most appropriate thread.
A 2002 study by the United States Department of Justice indicated that recidivism rates among sex offenders was 5.3 percent; that is, about 1 in 19 of released sex offenders were later arrested for another sex crime. The same study mentioned that 68 percent of released non-sex offenders were rearrested for any crime (both sex and non-sex offenses), while 43 percent of the released sex offenders were rearrested for any crime (and 24 percent re-convicted).
According to the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) of the United States Department of Justice, in New York State the recidivism rate for sex offenders has been shown to be lower than any other crime except murder. Another report from the OJP which studied the recidivism of prisoners released in 1994 in 15 states (accounting for two-thirds of all prisoners released in the United States that year) reached the same conclusion.
Within three years of release, 2.5 percent of released rapists were rearrested for another rape, and 1.2 percent of those who had served time for homicide were arrested for a new homicide. Of the 9,691 male sex offenders released from prisons in 15 US states in 1994, 5.3 percent were rearrested for a new sex crime within 3 years of release.
Smith pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges in that case and was released from jail May 31.
