Amazing that Indians would be “shocked” to discover this statistic. That is precisely the documented pattern seen in the US. As in this country, ignorance of the facts can only be attributed to willful blindness.


Sounds alot like America we all know 95% of child abuse takes place in the children’s home.
Is it possible for a person forced to register to be institutionalized from being on the registry for 22 years, I mean I see people come home from prison who are institutionalized by the system.
I’ve been trapped in a virtual jail cell for 22 years constantly looking over my shoulder watching my back and preparing myself for whatever happens at work.
Putting teenagers on the registry for life is inhumane and unnecessary.
ACSOL should form a team that only represents teenagers placed on the registry from ages 17-19 so when the media and law enforcement agencies post pictures of dirty scary sex offenders they pulled out from under the freeway, will counter that with a picture of a young handsome teen who made a really big mistake and has taken full responsibility of his actions and is very remorseful and has been working very hard to become a productive member of Society.

I am shocked that India is shocked About this. Family business should stay in the family. But the Karen’s of the world like to make trouble. Why? Cause those Karen’s had no one too love them. [snip]

Meanwhile the United States is the land of Confusion and a lot of deflection.
