On Sex Offenders
John Chiv looks at the story of four lesbians in Texas accused of molesting two young girls. One of the girls recanted and the court declared the four innocent.
Along that same line, Reason magazine looks at some who look at sex offenders and think they're not the life long threat many think:
"Take the claim that sex offenders are incorrigible even after being punished—that most can't or won't control themselves, and they inevitably re-offend. Sometimes they do. But a raft of research, including studies by both the U.S. and Canadian governments, have shown that adjudicated sex offenders have a very low recidivism rate. The U.S. study found that rates for first-time offenders are as low as five percent during the first three years after release. That's the lowest rate for any violent crime except murder."
