UK - Should nine year olds learn about sex abuse

In our opinion, yes!

Am I the only one who suspects, if (big IF) this guy knows what he is talking about, that they (the Dept of Corrections) are deliberately releasing those likely to re-offend to prove their point, regain funding / legitimacy and ultimately, save their jobs?

In Nevada every time the State Parole Board would come under pressure to let more inmates out on parole they would pick the most dangerous and likely to reoffend and parole them. One inmate they gave parole to lasted only two weeks. The Nevada Parole Board had over a 50% return rate which was by design. So this does not surprise me that Minnesota would consider releasing some of the most dangerous and likely reoffenders possible. If just one goes on a rampage they will be able to close the door for good and there is not a Judge who would go against the for at least another 20 years.

How interesting. Why not? the schools today teach children "safe sex," how to use a condom, that having two daddies or mommies is just fine; so why not teach children about persons who want to hurt them? My question is this: Who are the people that will teach them, and just what would be their curriculum and contents to teach the little ones?

"You can't change the pathology of a sex offender," Well, this statement is part-and-parcel of the ubiquitous mind set of America and the same trash that John Walsh and his crew dispensed by psychologists and other "experts" before Congress, which had led America to the conclusive presumption that all sex offenders are "PATHOLOGICAL." This is just the tip of the iceberg. Yes, there are a minority who are so compulsive and uncontrollable, they can be classifieds as "pathological." But just read the federal SORNA, and a number of the state registry preambles and you will CLEARLY see the conclusive presumption written into these laws that bespeaks the mind set of the states and federal government. No offender can be trusted. And of course this is clearly evident by the fact of all the inane stupid sex offender laws being pumped out like a car factory. Enough said? I marvel at the state and federal government hypocrisy (no surprise to me though); the claim is all sex offenders are "pathological," there is no "CURE," for them etc. Yet when an offender enters into prison, sex offender treatment is MANDATORY. Which is it then? To me, there is more of an agenda for the prison setting than "TREATMENT." but SINCE ALL OF THIS IS BEHIND HIGH WALLS, who really sees it except those who are involved.

OMG! And once again for the year 2013, we see another glut of fear, city, county, "burg," grandstanding, myopia, self-righteousness, chest puffing, absolute unfounded hysteria. And, as I have stated in a past article, what difference do statistics make when NOTHING EVER GETS DONE ABOUT IT CHANGED???

You have a valid point, and we've wondered about that ourselves. Got to keep the money making machine rolling in the money!

We would not doubt it. Got to keep the money rolling in some how.

We'd agree. Just because she is a DA who has prosecuted sex crimes doesn't make her qualified or an expert in the field.

A while back there was an article that talked about how this was going to be done here. the idea of talking about sex to young children was seen by some as too hard to do in a age appropriate manner. It would appear it is doable. Now here is the question that comes to mind. do they have mandatory reporting? One would think lawmakers here would be all over this. However would this open Pandora's box? Given most children are molested by a family member or close family friend where would this go? Interesting thought as we know these family secrets are kept until someone gets the child to start talking about it. I know this sounds creepy but reality is sometimes. This is a really great step to take to stop sex abuse. However with the system we have now the end result is much like dropping an atomic bomb on the family. When we look at the numbers that are tossed about. One in four females as well as one in six males will be sexually abused before they turn 18. The number of unreported cases is mind boggling. So the questions I would have is do our lawmakers really want to make a difference? Or are they content to track and ruin the small percent they have already. will they be able to with stand the mass cost this will have on families as well as the states financially if they continue with the system they have and add this? Maybe it's time we stop turning our head and looking the other way and just admit this is a real problem and take the bull by the horns. Of course they might need to take a look at the entire picture as it is going to get expensive if they don't. One thing though is we might see an entire new way of dealing with this. One that is more a public health issue then a criminal one. Time will tell.

You know Loneranger, there is one question we both seemed to overlook. And here it is: Just where are the parents to teach the children about sexual abuse? Why does the schools need to get involved? So the state has too? And what will happen if and when the State gets involved?

True! We think they should learn about sexual abuse, but we all know the government screws up everything they touch, just about.
