Discredited Sex Assault Research Infects U.S. Legal System

When a toxin enters a biological ecosystem, its effect is magnified as it moves up the food chain. Even if it can be cut off at the source, the ever-widening distribution of its increasingly harmful form can cause problems for decades.

Misinformation functions in a similar fashion, gaining traction as it’s repeated by increasingly high-profile individuals who venture ever further from the source material. In this manner, distortion about the facts of sexual assault has affected the training of judges, prosecutors, and other law enforcement officials. It is how misleading assertions become embedded in criminal and military law. Full Article

    The sex offender as monster meme is powerful. Even some registrants succumb to it, despite what they know of themselves or presume of others. I did. Why else would I do such a thing? I mean, problem solved, I must be a latent monster. The truth, though, is often too strange to comprehend. That’s the problem. It doesn’t fit the map inside our heads, drawn by society over many years, without us even realizing. When faced with commiting an offense, out of the blue as it were, with no precedent and no offense after, everyone wants to look for some readily understandable cause and effect that fits that map, and the simple answer is often the virus that finds a willing host in the mind.

    EXCELLENT READ! Highly Recommend this article is read by @AJ, Chris F, Lake County, David Kennerly, mike r, et al

    Right up there with the debunked “Frightening and High” statistic so loved by Attys and Courts that know no better and which we hope SCOTUS finally overturns (with Justice Kennedy leading the charge).

      A good read, for sure, and an exact parallel to the “frightening and high” plague we, and the judicial system, have suffered. BTW, I personally think “frightening and high” are more accurate as descriptors of people who think RCs are this huge threat. Ex.: “That soccer mom is frightening and high if she thinks ML does anything for anyone.”
