I am sick and tired of legal groups trying to give convicted CRIMINALS who have served their sentences more rights then parents who want to protect their children...
I still cannot believe that AWB had his blog shut down because some convicted sex offenders took offense to his blog and thought he was threatening them. This is absurd and illustrates some of the things that have gone wrong with this country.
I am glad that Michael Reese had the courage to let us know who was responsible for this outrageous violation of freedom of speech. Michael Reese you should be 100% ashamed of your behavior.
Michael Reese claims that few sex offenders commit sex crimes after they are released from prison.
After I questioned this statistic he did the right thing and posted his source.
Please look for yourself:
If this report (From the US Dept of Justice) is accurate then the following was true when this study was conducted on prisoners released in 1994:
1. 43% of these released sex offenders were re-arrested within just three years for various
2. 5.3% of the sex offenders that were released were arrested for committing more sex crimes.
3. 68% of non sex offenders released from prison were re-arrested within 3 years for various
4. 1.3% of the non sexoffenders released from prison were arrested for committing sex crimes.
MOST DISTURBING TO ME
5. The average sex offender was sentenced to 8 years and served only 3 and 1/2 years.
6. The average CHILD MOLESTER was sentenced to 7 years and served only 3 years.
This helps illustrate some of the things wrong with America:
The recidivism rate is far too high.
Prisoners serve on average less then HALF of their sentence.
WE NEED TO BUILD MORE PRISONS AND WE NEED TO STOP PUTTING PEOPLE IN JAIL FOR NON VIOLENT CRIMES THAT HURT NO ONE OTHER THEN THE PERSON COMMITTING THE CRIME.
Realize that there are numerous studies out about this. Check this one out:
According to this survey only 32% of sexual assaults against persons aged 12 years or odler are reported. This would make you think that a large number of sex offenders released from prison keep committing sex crimes and do not get caught. Do not let that bother you Michael Reese...
According to this survey the rate of arrests for convicted sex offenders is:
Within one year, 6%
Within 5 years, 19%
Within 10 years, 30%
Within 25 years, 52%
Do not let this bother you either Michael Reese.
More statistics from The Department of Justice:
Look under "Sex Offenders"
The median age of sexual assault victims is less then 13 years old.
19% of those arrested for sexual assault were on probation or parole when they were arrested.
Do not let this bother you Michael Reese...
I could go on and on and on...
Concerned parent of two wonderful children
P.S. Michael Reese please keep in mind that criminals do not have more rights then citizens on my personal property. If I ever see one of the "sex offenders" on AWB's blog in the house I own and in which my children reside and if I feel they are a danger to my children, my wife, or myself; I will use whatever force I think necessary to defend my family up to and including using my 40 caliber hand gun.
