190. Despite the propaganda that is usually presented most sex offenders *do not* repeat the offense
Edited on Fri Jun-27-08 01:44 AM by justaregularperson
Drives me nuts when I see all of the bad data being spread. The recidivism rate is not much different than other crimes. Search and read... I did (researched) some time ago to get at the truth.

Having said that, it is a particularly terrible crime and sentences should reflect that. But we really need to stop repeating fear propaganda.

I am also very concerned for our society. Revenge as justice is becomming a more and more accepted idea. That is barbaric and will eventually lead to all sorts of injustice.
