in 3 years 11% rearested for sex offense and 57% for a violent offense
in 4 years 28% reconvicted of a sex offense and 43% of a violent offense
the facts are sadly clear. the sex offenders as a group are the most likely to reoffend. that is why they are monitored so closely. personally i think it borders on child endargement to knowingly send a kid to trick or treat at a sex offenders home.
-evening to night, darkness gives concealment
-kids to the door already
-parents anywhere from there to curb to absent
-luring in kids is what they do so experience
so no they may not all try, and those that do may not succeed, but they do have motive means and opurtinity. it seems like yes they would be able.
but in a spirit of trying to be chariatable towards the sex offenders hows this. they have commited sins, mostly REALLY bad ones to get on those lists. sending kids to their door would be like draging an alcoholic to a bar then holding him while he does a keg stand. by allowing any kids to go there you are providing an ocasion for sin for them. so if we really care about them shouldnt we help them by keeping all kids as far away from them as we can?
