You Need to Know About Sex Offenders
Nothing posted to this blog will ever be about sympathy for the sex offender. An steering consideration in my studies, beginning in 1998, has been to understand and empathize with the adverse consequences of childhood sexual abuse. It is becoming increasingly more clear that current management practices are not reducing either the incidence of sexual abuse of children or the recidivism of sex offenders. Societies reaction to sexual abuse of children has been driven by emotion and desire for retribution then justified by logic contrived to support the measure. Historically, and not just with sex offenders, that approach has too frequently caused more problems than it has solved. That has not changed.
Sun Tzu, in “The Art of War”, observed that “If you know the enemy and you know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles”. At least half of winning this battle to protect our children from sexual abuse, then, is to know the sex offender. That is the purpose of my study; to know the sex offender well enough to defeat them.
After fifteen years of study, I am confident I can offer a solution that will ensure your child will not be taken and abused by a stranger. It is not always convenient, but it works every time. It will be the subject of my first post – “Parents, Watch Your Children!”
