And yet another fear-mongering news story distorting the facts. Not all living under the bridge, that are sex offenders, were not convicted of sex crimes against children! They'd know that if they examined the registry more closely, but hey, that would not make a good fear-mongering story, now would it? This video is full of BS and just statistics from one 2001 study (Folder, Archived), and I have tons of other studies which show recidivism rates as low as 3.5%. Also, why don't they take into account the draconian living conditions, which push some, but not all, to commit new crimes, and not necessarily new sex crimes? Just the typical fear-mongering, false statistics BS, for ratings, IMO!
"The mood and temper of the public in regard to the treatment of crime and criminals is one of the most unfailing tests of a civilization. We must have a desire to rehabilitate into the world of industry, all those who have paid their dues in the hard coinage of punishment." - Winston Churchill (United States Constitution)
