    False.

    Released prisoners with the highest rearrest rates were robbers (70.2%), burglars (74.0%), larcenists (74.6%), motor vehicle thieves (78.8%), those in prison for possessing or selling stolen property (77.4%), and those in prison for possessing, using, or selling illegal weapons (70.2%).

    Sexual offenders are not even in the top six for highest recidivism.

    In fact, recidivism for sexual offenders is below 10% which would put it as one of the least likely groups to re offend.

    Re: Should Registered Offenders Be Allowed to live with minors?

    This is another example of a politician trying to earn points by appearing to be tough on crime, particularly the disgusting crime of molesting children. The overly broad term "registered offender" can include a guy who took a leak where he shouldn't have, or a teen who sent explicit photos, a whole lot of things. If it were to apply only to sexual predators who prey on minors, then it would have some merit.

    Then there is the mile radius from schools. Take a map of any town in America, draw mile diameter circles around all of he schools, and there won't be much left outside of those circles.

    The law is poorly thought out, probably won't pass, but will provide ammunition during the next election to fool people into thinking that the author is doing something about child sexual predators.

    So, it will probably serve its purpose.

    Re: Should Registered Offenders Be Allowed to live with minors?

    Is there anything society could do to make me straight? Is there anything you could do with me other than keep me in prison if you didn't want me having gay sex?

    I believe they were born this way because god can be weird. But they just can't ever be in a situation where they could possibly ruin some young person's life.

    I have time for some more

    We should put our efforts towards separating child molesters from the general population. We just leave it at that.

    We cannot accept you into our society and we are not willing to kill you. So you must live on this island until the day you die. Make the best of it. May God forgive you for your sin.

    Perhaps the problem is right in your first sentence. That group that is suppose to represent society in deciding who is safe and who is not has done a crappy job.

    If I made erroneous decisions in my job I would probably be having a lot of free time during the work week.

    Take a map and draw a circle with a one-mile diameter around every school and day care center. See if there is any place in town a registered sex offender could live. In the last town in which I lived in in the U.S. the answer would be no. Between day care centers and schools the town would have been totally off limits.

    There's got to be some place. Because they can't go further than a mile to find a victim. It''s too far.

    Well if they were trying to prevent you from having gay sex...prison would probably be the last place to put ya.

    A voice of reason!!! They can never be trusted, so instead of keeping them locked away at our expense, execute them, and practice zero tolerance in society.
