I have thought long & hard over the past few weeks about writing on this subject matter. I am against the death penalty, and believe that an eye for an eye is not feasible in the 22nd century. Both of those beliefs go out the window when talking about child molesters, child abusers & child killers. The past year has been horribly full of missing children, abused children and molested children, and I am sick of this bull shit trend that seems to be flooding America.
I came across the stats below when reading on the subject of child murder, child abuse and child molestation. The stats are dated and go a few years back, but then I started thinking if these are old stats, just how much more of a problem the issue is today.
Children, along with women, are this planets most precious resource and we are doing harm to a section of our population that can not defend themselves. Our children are defenseless against predators and pedophiles walking our streets and online using the internet as a tracking/stalking tool. Instead of focusing on bills such as S.O.P.A. and P.I.P.A. we should be shutting down use of the internet to harm our young adults.
Child Abuse in America
Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect. Over 3 million reports of child abuse are made every year in the United States; however, those reports can include multiple children. In 2009, approximately 3.3 million child abuse reports and allegations were made involving an estimated 6 million children.
Child Abduction; Murder Facts; Statistics
Statistically speaking, abduction is an area parents worry about more than they should, but this doesn’t mean it should be glossed over. Preventive efforts to teach kids stranger danger & abduction prevention techniques have foiled thousands upon thousands of would-be abductions.
1. Yearly around 750,000 children are reported missing in the United States, around 2,000 every day.
2. Most of these are runaways or kids taken by a family member.
3. Around 100 children are abducted and murdered in the U.S. each year. Around 60% of all child-murder abductions are at the hands of someone the child knows, not a stranger.
4. In around 75% of all murder-abductions, the child is believed to be dead within 3-6 hours of the abduction.
5. Nearly all murdered children are killed by a family member, most often a parent.
6. Most murdered children are not killed by pedophiles or sex-offenders, but by physical abusers, drug addicts, drug dealers, alcoholics, sadists (those who kill for thrill), and lain old otherwise ordinary people.
7. For every successful stranger abduction, there are many more failed attempts. It’s hard to know the exact number, as many cases are disregarded by parents and never reported, and record keeping is spotty at best. But based on our own monitoring of news reports, we would estimate around 20 failed attempts for every successful abduction. So while only around 100 children are kidnapped and murdered each year (most by friends and family), countless others are tested! Make sure your child is prepared.
9. Seven in ten children will walk away with a stranger despite being warned, according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. This is because merely telling kids “don’t talk to strangers” isn’t enough. They need more substantial training in stranger danger.
Statistics on Pedophiles
Sixty seven percent of all victims of sexual assault reported to law enforcementagencies were juveniles (under the age of 18).
34% of all victims were under age 12.One of every seven victims of sexual assault reported to law enforcement were under age 6.
8 out of 10 prisoners convicted of sexual assault had committed their crime against a victim
under age 18.
Convicted rape and sexual assault offenders serving time in State prisons report that two-thirds of their victims were under the age of 18, and 58% of those–or nearly 4 in 10 imprisoned violent sex offenders–said their victims were aged 12 or younger.
Four data sets (the FBI’s UCR arrests, State felony court convictions, prison admissions, and the National Crime Victimization Survey) all point to a sex offender who is older than other violent offenders, generally in his early 30′s, and more likely to be white than other violent offenders.
On a given day in 1994 there were approximately 234,000 offenders convicted of rape or sexual assault under the care, custody or control of corrections agnecies: nearly 60% of these sex offenders are under conditional supervision in the community.
An estimated 24% of those serving time for rape and 19% of those serving time for sexual assault had been on probation or parole at the time of the offense for which they were in State prison in 1991. ( U.S. Department of Justice)
Sex offenders were about four times more likely than non-sex offenders to be arrested for another sex crime after their discharge from prison–5.3% of sex offenders vs 1.3% of non-sex offenders.
A 1994 National Institute of Health survey of 453 pedophiles, conducted by Dr. Gene Abel, showed these criminals were collectively responsible for the molestation of over 67,000 children. That’s an average of 148 children per individual pedophile.An estimated 5.1% (1 of every 20 persons) will serve time in prison during their lifetime. (Criminal Offenders Statistics)
“62.5% of 108,580 persons released from prison in 1983 were re-asserted for a felony or serious misdemeanor within 3 years.”
(Bureau of Justice Standards.)
“2/3rds of Sex Offenders in State Prisons had victimized a Child.’ (Bureau of Justice Standards.)
“60% of 234,000 sexual offenders in 1994 convicted of rape or sexual assault were under conditional supervision in the community.”
“The median age of the victims of imprisoned sexual offenders was less than 13 years old.” (Bureau of Justice Standards.)
“4 in 10 inmates serving time in jail for intimate violence were on probation or parole at the time of the violent attack on the intimate (someone they knew)’ (Criminal Offenders Statistics)
80% of inmates serving time in State Prison for intimate violence had injured or killed their victim.” (Criminal Offenders Statistics)
“96% of female rape victims in 1991, younger than 12 years old, knew their attackers. 20% were victimized by their fathers or step-fathers.” (US Department of Justice)
Children younger than 18 were the victims in almost 20% of the violent crimes committed by State Prisoners. 50% were 12 years old or younger. (U.S. Department of Justice.)
25% of prisoners who victimized children had prior convictions for violent crimes. (U.S. Department of Justice.)
Between 1976 and 1994, almost 37,000 children were murdered.
66% were less than 1 years old and 58% of those from 1 to 4 years old were killed by beating with fists, or blunt objects or by kicking. (U.S. Department of Justice.)
“Family Members or Acquaintances commit most of the Child Murders.” (Bureau of Criminal Justice Standards.)
1 in 5 violent offenders serving time in a State prison reported having victimized a child.
More than half the violent crimes committed against children involved victims age 12 or younger.
7 in 10 offenders with child victims reported that they were imprisoned for a rape or sexual assault.
Two-thirds of all prisoners convicted of rape or sexual assault had committed their crime against a child.
All but 3% of offenders who committed violent crimes against children were male.
Offenders who had victimized a child were on average 5 years older than the violent offenders who had committed their crimes against adults.
Nearly 25% of child victimizers were age 40 or older, but about 10% of the inmates with adult victims fell in that age range.
While nearly 70% of those serving time for violent crimes against children were white, whites accounted for 40% of those imprisoned for violent crimes against adults.
Inmates who victimized children were less likely than other inmates to have a prior criminal record–nearly a third of child-victimizers had never been arrested prior to the current offense, compared to less than 20% of those who victimized adults.
Violent child-victimizers were substantially more likely than those with adult victims to have been physically or sexually abused when they were children, though the majority of violent offenders, regardless of victim age, did not have a history of such abuse.
About 14% of child victimizers carried a weapon during the violent crime, compared to nearly half of those who victimized adults.
About 10% of violent offenders with child victims received life or death sentences and the average prison term was 11 years, somewhat shorter average sentences than received by those with adult victims.
3 in 10 child victimizers reported that they had committed their crimes against multiple victims; they were more likely than those who victimized adults to have had multiple victims.
3 in 4 child victims of violence were female.
For the vast majority of child victimizers in State prison, the victim was someone they knew before the crime.
A third had committed their crime against their own child, about half had a relationship with the victim as a friend, acquaintance, or relative other than offspring.
About 1 in 7 reported the victim to have been a stranger to them.
Three-quarters of the violent victimizations of children took place in either the victim’s home or the offender’s home.
4 in 10 child victims of violence suffered either a forcible rape or another injury
The Statistics of Teacher sexual abuse to Students
The best estimate is that 15% of students will be sexually abused by a member of the school staff during their school career.
Though, when the American Association of University Women Foundation surveyed more than 1,600 students in eighth through 11th grade, 25 percent of the girls and 10 percent of the boys who said they had been harassed or abused said the harasser was a school employee.
The number of K-12 public and private school students in 1996 who have been or will be sexually abused by a member of the school staff is nearly 7 million of 51,331,000.Between 1% and 5% of teachers sexually abuse or harass students.
At least a quarter of all school districts in the United States have dealt with a case of staff sexual abuse in the past ten years.Most cases of sexual abuse of students by teachers are never reported.
In nearly half of the cases, suspects were accused of abusing more than one student.
Only two cases were cases of false accusations; less than 1 percent of the cases studied.
No type of school was immune to abuse: public or private, religious or secular, rich or poor, urban or rural.
Responses to Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Students by Staff
38.7% of the teachers resigned, left the district, or retired.
17.5% were spoken to informally.
15% were terminated or not re-hired11.
3% received a formal verbal or written reprimand8.
1% were suspended and then resumed teaching.
7.5% were cases where the superintendent determined that the teacher hadn’t meant to sexually abuse.
Of the nearly 54% of abusers who resigned, weren’t rehired, retired, or were terminated, superintendents reported that 16% were teaching in other schools and that they didn’t know what had happened to the other 84%.
All but 1% of these teachers retained their teaching license.
Teacher Student Sex Legalities
In 20 states, it is not a crime for school employees—including teachers, administrators, and coaches—to have sex with students aged 16 and over.
In 23 states, it is not a crime for school employees to have sex with students aged 17 and over.
In 45 states, it is not a crime for school employees to have sex with students aged 18 and over.
In 16 states, it is a crime for adults in a position of trust and authority—teachers, administrators, and coaches among them—to have sex with students under the age of 18.
Child Pornography and the Internet
It is estimated that 500 million people worldwide will be connected to the Internet by 2003.
There are an estimated 100,000 Web sites involved in some way with child pornography.
The U.S. Customs Cyber Smuggling Center in Fairfax, Virginia, has reviewed more than 10,000 tips since January 2000.
A 1999 U.S. Customs case revealed a child pornography Web site that in its first three months recorded nearly 150,000 hits and the download of 3.2 million images.
Since 1992, the U.S. Customs Service has arrested more than 1,000 people on charges related to child pornography.
Customs has never lost a case that has gone to the judicial process — defendants have either pleaded guilty or have been convicted.
Almost 24 million children ages 10 to 17 were online regularly in 1999.
A survey conducted in 2000 of 1,501 U.S. children ages 10 to 17 showed that about 1 in 4 had had unwanted exposure to an image of naked people or people having sex in the previous year.
Roughly 1 in 5 children had received a sexual solicitation or approach.
One in 33 children had received an aggressive solicitation, meaning that someone asked them to meet somewhere, or called on the phone, or sent them a regular e-mail, money or gifts.
Less than 10 percent of sexual solicitations and only 3 percent of unwanted exposure episodes were ever reported to authorities, including law enforcement agencies or Internet providers.
Arrests for possessing and distributing child pornography have been climbing steadily, in part because federal agencies are devoting more resources to the issue.In fiscal year 1992, U.S.
Customs recorded 57 arrests for possession of child pornography transported across borders, 48 indictments and 69 convictions.
By 2000, those numbers had grown to 320 arrests, 299 indictments and 324 convictions.
My solution to all these stats is simple. if a person, no matter what their gender, is convicted of child abuse, child molestation or child murder, beyond a REASONABLE doubt, of a jury of THEIR PEERS…..immediate death. No appeals, no lengthy wait time, no sitting on death row for years, immediate death. NOW.
