Laurens Kids, a non profit started by Lauren Book has estimated the United States has an estimated 39 million yes 39,ooo,ooo survivors of sexual abuse in the U.S.
Sex Offenders and or Thier advocates swear sex offenders have the lowest rate of recidivism of all crimes (except murder) ..Now if we are edging up around 730,000 (thousand) convicted sex offenders in this country I cant seem to quite square those figures with one another ..
Not to mention SO's are always plying the "he only made one mistake and is paying for it for the rest of his life crap" umm ONE mistake uh? Our definitions of a Mistake must be 180 degrees fom one another..I liken a mistake as missing your exit off I-95 not diddling kids but hey potato, potado.
If anyone has some magical mathmatical theory on how these numbers can remotely jive with one another? Let me know..
