ARKANSAS, USA — There are 767,000 registered sex offenders across the nation and 18,000 of those live in Arkansas. The data says that just under 600 registered sex offenders per 100-thousand residents. This data comes from safehome.org.

Senior industry analyst, Corie Colliton says since there is no national sex offender registry, they’ve been compiling the data from each state since 2019.  

“Arkansas does have a high number of child sex abuse victims per 100,000 minors in the state. It was higher than any other state. Almost three times the national average, so that could also be contributing to the number of sex offenders,” she said.

go figure after watching the movie deliverance years ago , i thought so then and now

With its ranking among education (46/50) and the pathetically small amount the state government invests in public projects that could supply needed jobs, as well as a much higher than average drug and alcohol abuse problem, I am not surprised by the high number of child abuse cases.

“95% of the cases involved family members or people the children knew in the neighborhood or school.”

Translation: Registry doesn’t do jack for safety.
