First, I used to be in a Motorcycle group that dealt with abused kids and have heard enough stories and most of them would turn your stomach! It’s a long story as to why I’m no longer a member but here’s the short version, they decided they anted to be more like a MC (Motorcycle Club) and that was not what I signed up for.
We had an AB Tankerman that was locked up for abusing the female child of his GF. There was a lot of talk about what “might happen to him” if and when he came back! Well, after being locked up and dragged threw the mud, it turned out that the GF had made it all up! He did come back to work but you could tell that he was never the same.
There are a lot of people that get that tag hung on them for something very minor. I’ve always felt that with something as important as who someone may be, they should give more information on what the crime was and how old the kids were. There are a bunch of kids that have a life long tag for dating a younger girl even when both sets of parents were well aware of what was going on. This is an example of someone that would be at a very low risk of ever offending again.
As for anyone that actually does something to children, there are a lot of studies that all lean towards the fact that there is NO curing them and if given the chance they will offend again!
