    Teacher left alone in AZ prison raped.

    Left alone with a sex offender, a teacher is raped - CBS 5 - KPHO

    PHOENIX (AP) - A teacher at an Arizona prison was alone in a room full of sex offenders before being stabbed and sexually assaulted by a convicted rapist, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press about an attack that highlighted major security lapses at the facility".

    Who dropped the ball here? Are we just so naive to believe that sexually violent criminals can be rehabilitated?

    The prison is understaffed. The Warden will take the hit, especially considering he's saying stuff to cover for the financiers:

    Nick also said that not having a guard in classrooms or nearby "follows accepted corrections practices nationwide."
    There needs to be a least one guard in the classroom at all times. That should be policy.

    As to the poll question - some can, some can't.

    Almost never. A man who gets off on sexually overpowering other people against their consent is the living definition of a "predator" and should be treated as such.

    I was a Corrections Officer at a juvenile institution in Louisiana in the late 90's and there were two of us officers in the school and we definately didnt stay in the classrooms. We watched the halls, one upstairs and one downstairs between classes, and the rest of the time we were in our office.

    Absolutes are almost always wrong so I answered depends. From what I read the recidivism rate among sex offenders runs around 1 in 4 over the course of 25 years though measuring actual recidivism is difficult for a number of reasons.

    I get that that is the reality on the ground. However, it should not be.

    Oh, I agree. I was just explaining my experience. There are more things that need money then we have money to go around.

    I wouldn't want to be left alone in a room full of sex offenders. I can't imagine a woman thinking it was a good idea.

    Can't they teach these classes by video or something?

    WRT to the poll, I figure that maybe some of them get over it but as far as I'm concerned if you ever were a chomo or a rapist you'll always be that way.

    The recidivism rate is too high for sex offenders. I read once (don't remember where, so I can't cite the article) that said that recidivism rate for (child) sex offenders was like 91% or something astronomically high.

    There's no way to rehabilitate with someone that high. That's the reason for the Registered Sex Offenders registry. You don't see thieves or murderers that have to sign up when they move to a new location. Sex offenders have to be watched closely to make sure that they don't pick up where they left off before prison.
