Rape, Assault and Murder is thriving
How many women, men and children have to be raped and or killed before our laws are changed and actually governed by accordingly?? ONE is too many, yet statistics show:
An estimated 75 to 95% of rapes and assaults go
UN-reported. It’s small wonder when you consider how a victim is treated. Victims are already in a state of shock and then have all their dignity taken away. This lack of regard is unfathomable.
Florida is one of the worst states known for releasing rapists and child molesters to harm again. As a repeat victim, I have made many attempts to reach out to governing offices and representatives such as the state attorney’s office, governor, state and county officials. The only responses I have received were “auto replies” in the form of e-mails, or generic form letters via mail. This serves only to add insult to injury. Daphne Asbell with the Florida Parole Commission is the only exception I have found. Daphne is a genuine example of a pro-active advocate, and additionally shares her empathy to victims.
All you have to do is watch Investigation ID on TV, which has nothing but case after case of repetitive offenders being released by liberal judgeS, granting them access to hunt new victims. The statistics are beyond appalling on repeat offenders. Rapes have become more violent and twisted, with death a more certain outcome than not.
Many sex offenders have openly admitted they should never be set free …and those who were did in fact go on to commit more violent attacks. They remain and always will be a threat to society. You can’t cure evil !
GRACEVILLE — Inside a prison in this North Florida city, a twice-convicted rapist said the state never should have let him go.
“This is where I belong,’’ said Michael Dochterman, 43. “It’s the only way to keep control on me.’’
“Some of us just don’t belong in society... I don't’’
The concept of the Jimmy Ryce Act is stellar, however the legal guidelines and interpretations are sorely lacking as this article describes. The screening process used to assess offenders is not adequate for starters. Having no priors should not make anyone exempt. If one has a propensity for sexual urges and fantasies to commit violent acts, gets caught and arrested, that is one time too many. It is deplorable the amount of time and money spent on studies, research and reviews, and analyzing data, and then talking about it instead of taking action!!
Einstein famously said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” Humans that are nothing more than monsters are not going to change. There is no such thing as a fail-proof safeguard, which is the unfortunate “norm” in today’s society. The laws can and should be written as absolute with no loopholes or questionable and ambiguous interpretation. Proper training and competent screening should be a number one priority. Perhaps a panel of former victims and family members could serve to make more educated and qualified decisions when applying laws like the Jimmy Ryce act.
Any judge who releases a sexual predator (meaning a rapist, child molester, NOT a flasher or someone answering the call of nature etc) should have to have said offender go home with the judge to his family’s safe haven. When confronted with that possibility, then maybe these liberal, lenient, incompetent judges would think twice before inking their signatures. Examples:
The rate of recidivism among adult sex offenders seems to be a controversial topic. Some state that the rate is quite low, others that it is quite high. The term recidivism rates refer to detected or officially recorded sex crimes. The term re-offense rates refer to all sex crimes regardless of whether they are detected or officially recorded.
Researchers agree that recidivism rates underestimate re-offense rates because most sex crimes go unreported. Neither perpetrators nor victims tend to report sex crimes. Victims report only a fraction of sex offenses to authorities.
We need activists, not speech makers. We the public need to seriously consider who we give our trust to in order to protect us when we have local and state elections. I for one, am sick of platitudes and empty promises. Vote for the candidate who has the cajones to truly be diligent and put their words into actions.
Protect yourselves, your families, friends, and future generations. Don’t be afraid to let your voice be heard.
