60 and sunny here today..and now for the NEWS!

what's new in the news?! Terry Schivo has gone into renal failure..near death. Johnny Cochran died of an inoperable brain tumor. As for the little fgirl who was ,kidnapped,killed and missing for a month in FL..now politicians are trying to pass a bill similar to megan's Law to protect children from sex offenders who may b in the area unknowingly. Apparently there are so many that many have dropped off the radar screen and the police don't know where they are. The bill if passed would make them wear a detecting device on their ankles to track their movements at all times. hopefully this would cut down on their crimes..What do u think?! Do u think this is a good idea? Or do u think they have certian rights too and that they should b protected under the law after they have served their time. Statistically most of these men r never rehabilitated .

Eventually we may have to isolate them all. That means huge increases in prison budgets in all the states to build new places to keep these creeps. I do not have much faith in the present system to keep these repeat offenders away from my own kids.

I have two kids of my own and i would die if something happened to either of them. I think that they should do the detecting device if the men/women have gave them no other choice. Say if they have been found guitly over and over in many cases. This subject is not something to play lightly with and i hope they make the right choice.

OK Reality Check,

1, most of you from what you are saying have no idea of the circumstances of majority of child sexual offences and perpetrators
2, it is highly unlikely and exceptionally uncommon that a child will be assaulted in such a manner by an absolute stranger....

reality is,

women also often sexually abuse children!

majority of victims of child sexual assualt were the victim of someone they know! usually a family member i.e. a step father uncle cousin Aunt step mother, least likely of all family members is a biological father.

majority of perpetrators were once victims of child sexual assault! but this does not mean that all victims become perpetrators!

about the only fact that you have right is that paedophiles are repeat offenders although the vast majority of them offend for years with multiple victims before ever being caught!

supervise your children, teach them how to communicate effectively, provide your children means to always contact you if they need to, and make sure they can always speak to you if they are concerned about something, teach them that secrets are wrong!

that is the ONLY way you can protect your children from paedophiles!
