Researchers See Decline in Child Sexual Abuse Rate

"Anyone reading the headlines in recent weeks has come away with an unsettling message: Sexual predators seem to lurk everywhere.

Overall cases of child sexual abuse fell more than 60 percent from 1992 to 2010, according to David Finkelhor, a leading expert on sexual abuse who, with a colleague, Lisa Jones, has tracked the trend. The evidence for this decline comes from a variety of indicators, including national surveys of child abuse and crime victimization, crime statistics compiled by the F.B.I., analyses of data from the National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect and annual surveys of grade school students in Minnesota, all pointing in the same direction.

From 1990 to 2010, for example, substantiated cases of sexual abuse dropped from 23 per 10,000 children under 18 to 8.6 per 10,000, a 62 percent decrease, with a 3 percent drop from 2009 to 2010, according to the researchers’ analysis of government data. The Minnesota Student Survey charted a 29 percent decline in reports of sexual abuse by an adult who was not a family member from 1992 to 2010 and a 28 percent drop in reports of sexual abuse by a family member. The majority of sexual abuse cases involve family members or acquaintances rather than strangers, studies have found."

Court bans paedophile group

"A Dutch foundation which campaigns for legalised sex between children and adults has been banned by a Dutch court after years of legal wrangling.

A civil court in Assen on Wednesday banned the paedophile lobby group Stichting Martijn with immediate effect, saying what the foundation does and says about the sexual contact between adults and children contravenes the accepted norms and values in Dutch society.

The foundation's wish to legalise paedophilia [sic] goes against the rule of law and the rights of children, the court said. 'The Dutch legal system should not give this position any room,' the Volkskrant quoted the judges as saying." Wednesday, June 27, 1:40 PM

"Hunters like myself have recurring issues with the Eco-fascists, animal rights activists, and the various worthless fools who, when they see a dear, see Bambi instead of venison. OK, I can force myself to be accommodating sometimes. Let's compromise and save deer by declaring open season on vermin - the two-legged kind.

Child abuse: How can we tell?

"In one courtroom, a judge apparently doesn't believe reports of a 6-year-old's accounts of his father's violence are serious enough to warrant taking him from that home.

In another, a different judge hears about a 4-year-old who says his parents locked him in a basement and that the boy's 5-year-old sister might have been sexually abused because she could describe her father's body parts. Yet the children's parents say neither is true.

And in the well-publicized case of 10-year-old Tramelle Sturgis, whose father was recently convicted of torturing and murdering the boy in November after years of abuse, testimony indicated that the Sturgis children usually denied they were being abused. Much of the questioning was conducted in the presence of their father or after he had been notified of the allegations.

When to believe the words of children -- often the only witnesses of their mistreatment -- is not an exact science [not a science at all], experts acknowledge.",0,2499607.story?track=rss

More on child abuse: What really happened?

"SOUTH BEND -- In Courtroom 1 of the Juvenile Justice Center, the tense body language of the several adults standing before the elevated judge suggests what is at stake: who will raise two children taken from their South Bend home in November.

Judge Peter Nemeth is presiding over a six-month review hearing in the case involving a 4-year-old boy, his 5-year-old sister and their parents, Rodney and Stephanie Cotten.

According to documents and that day's testimony, Department of Child Services workers, the children's therapist and their court-appointed special advocate say the children should be removed from their parents permanently and adopted by others.

The Cottens say they're willing to comply with an earlier court order for counseling -- that moving to another state and DCS delays in providing paperwork have complicated their attempts to find those services -- and that the abuses officials say their children have disclosed are untrue.",0,7224808.story?track=rss

Church protests insurance rules for sex offenders

"An Oregon church is challenging a requirement by its insurance company that it disclose the identity of sex offenders to other congregants, allow offenders to attend only one predetermined service and assign them an escort.

Pastor Chad McComas of Set Free Christian Fellowship in Medford said his church disclosed that known sex offenders were among the 100 members. Church Mutual insurance company on May 1 responded with a letter outlining requirements to continue an insurance policy.

Besides announcing disclosing the names of sex offenders, limiting them to one service and providing escorts, the church is required to keep sex offenders out of child or youth programs.

McComas told the Mail Tribune that the rules will have a chilling effect on disclosure."

Photography Is a Crime: Illinois Supreme Court Upholds Eight-Year Sentence for Taking Pictures of Legal Sex
"Last year Radley Balko described the case of Eric Rinehart, a former Indiana cop who was convicted of manufacturing child pornography based on video and photographs of two teenagers with whom he was having sex. Although both girls were above 16, Indiana's age of consent for sex, they were below 18, the federal age of consent for appearing in sexually explicit images—a two-year difference that resulted in a 15-year sentence for Rinehart.

 A recent decision by the Illinois Supreme Court hinges on the same sort of difference in ages of consent, and the incongruity is even more striking because in this case both ages were set by state law."

Paedophile DL sentenced

"A depraved paedophile who made sick films of himself abusing three young children and posted them on the internet has been jailed for at least seven years.

Under the sentence of imprisonment for public protection, DL will only be released if the parole board considers he is no longer a danger.

Branding the abuse "appalling", Judge Philip Statman told him: "You would be deluding yourself if you thought you would necessarily be released at the first opportunity of seven years."

Kingpin [sic] of international paedophile ring [sic] who raped children and spread videos of the attacks is jailed indefinitely

"Crispian Cartwright, defending, described the offending as 'an absolutely lamentable catalogue and about as depressing to read as anything can be'.

He added: 'This is a man who through his own admission showed he was a paedophile. He faced up to it. He has the terrible misfortune to be cursed with paedophilia.'"

Do pedophiles deserve sympathy?

"Editor's note: James Cantor, an associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, is a psychologist and senior scientist at the Sexual Behaviors Clinic of the Center for Addiction and Mental Health. He is editor in chief of "Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment" and blogs at Sexology Today.

(CNN) -- One cannot choose to not be a pedophile, but one can choose to not be a child molester.

"Pedophilia" was long used as a synonym for "child molestation," and both were often seen as psychological failures of self-control. Child molesters were thought to be acting out their own histories of abuses, reacting to fears of adult relationships, or manifesting a symptom that might be resolved in psychotherapy, after which they would no longer be pedophilic.

Recently, however, a number of studies have starting changing that view. It appears that one can be born with a brain predisposed to experience sexual arousal in response to children.

Cases of child molestation that involve long strings of victims over the course of years illustrate what can happen when someone gives in to, or outright indulges, his sexual interests, regardless of its potential damage on others. It is those cases that dominate headlines and provoke revulsion toward pedophiles.

But they are rare. An untold number of cases merit sympathy.

The science suggests that they are people who, through no fault of their own, were born with a sex drive that they must continuously resist, without exception, throughout their entire lives. Little if any assistance is ever available for them.

Having encountered thousands of cases, it is my experience that the pedophiles who do go on to become actual child molesters do so when they feel the most desperate. Yet, much of what society does has been to increase rather than decrease their desperation

If it is the brain's wiring that ultimately determines who will go on to develop pedophilia, can we detect it early enough to interrupt the process? Until we uncover more information, we will do more good by making it easier for pedophiles to come in for help rather than force them into solitary secrecy."

Britain balks at extradition in Minnesota sex case

"State sex offender program seen as rights violation.

LONDON - One of Britain's highest courts on Wednesday found that Minnesota's controversial program to commit sex offenders indefinitely to treatment violates European human rights law. The court asked for a guarantee from U.S. officials that an American man living in London wouldn't be subjected to the program if he were extradited.

U.S. justice officials have until June 29 to decide whether to offer an assurance that they wouldn't seek to civilly commit 43-year-old Shawn Eugene Sullivan, who faces charges in Hennepin and Dakota counties for the sexual assault of three girls in the 1990s.

Sullivan's British attorneys argued that he could be locked up with no likelihood of release in the Minnesota Sex Offender Program, created to hold and treat dangerous [sic] offenders.

On Wednesday, Lord Justice Alan Moses said returning Sullivan for trial with the possibility of later being placed in the sex offender system would be a "flagrant denial of his rights" under European law.

"It's showing that the Europeans ... have a different view of human rights than we may have in regard to some issues in the United States," Weissbrodt said. "

Police target 'anonymous' paedophiles [sic] on 'hidden internet'

"Paedophiles [sic] who trade in indecent images of children on the so-called “hidden internet” in the belief they can remain anonymous are to be targeted in a crackdown by Britain’s specialist child protection police unit.

Ceop, the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, said such sex offenders would be its “top priority” for the next year and that “many” paedophiles [sic] are now using hidden internet services.

“Some offenders have come to mistakenly believe that there are areas online, or tactics they can employ, that will cover their tracks from law enforcement,” said Peter Davies, chief executive of Ceop.

“This is not the case. There is nowhere to hide.

“We will be specifically targeting these offenders over the coming months with the full range of policing resources.”

The hidden internet is typically accessed using software such as Tor, originally developed by the United States government to make it more difficult to trace the source of traffic.

Ceop is dues [sic] to be incorporated into the new National Crime Agency next year, a reorganisation that prompted Mr Davies’ predecessor, Jim Gamble to resign [was that the reason, Jim?].

The Home Secretary Theresa May said the unit would be “further enhanced” as part of the National Crime Agency by “sharing intelligence to expose the links between child exploitation and other forms of serious and organised crime”" [ah, we see where this is going]

"More than 400 children were safeguarded from online paedophiles [sic] in the last year, a specialist police unit has said.

In the last 12 months, 427 children were safeguarded or protected by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (Ceop).

That included 60 victims [of what?

Peter Davies, chief executive of Ceop, said: "The safeguarding of so many children this year speaks for itself [in what way, Peter?] and is a tremendous achievement [sic].

We've identified the groups of offenders and sexual predators we believe pose the greatest risk to children and have prioritised these."

Tougher penalties sought for sex attacks

"The organising group in Blyth of (l-r) Gemma Greenway, Laura Rennie and Shane More who are petitioning to get tougher sentances for paedophiles [sic].

PARENTS in Blyth are campaigning for harsher sentences for paedophiles [sic] after a young girl was abused in the town.

A trio of parents have organised a campaign calling on the courts to hand out tougher penalties on convicted attackers.

They are looking to get 100,000 signatures to get the debate into the House of Commons.

Their campaign was sparked after WM, of Shelley Crescent, Blyth, was jailed in May at Newcastle Crown Court for a sex attack on a seven-year-old.

The 28-year-old was jailed for 32 months.

Now the petitioners – who are not related to the victim – have taken it upon themselves to challenge the leniency of the judicial system.

Laura Rennie, Gemma Greenaway and Shane Moore are putting their petition around the town in a bid to get the signatures required to have the issue looked at by government.

Mum-of-three Laura said: “We have got over 2,000 signatures already, so even though we are a long way off what we need, we are going in the right direction.

“No one likes paedophiles [sic], so everyone is behind us in what we are doing."

Boulder sex offender balks at 'intensive' probation, asks to be sent to prison

"Judge grants Justin Mathis' request, sentences him to 12 years

After months of being out of jail, a convicted Boulder sex offender self-revoked his probation, electing instead to go back behind bars to serve a 12-year sentence.

While parole violations are not uncommon, it's much less frequent that a sex offender on probation opts for incarceration -- and the scenario that played out in a Boulder courtroom last week helps prove that the treatment and probation program for sex offenders is rigorous, prosecutors say.

"It speaks to the stringency of probation when you've got somebody saying, 'I don't want to do this -- just send me back to prison,'" Boulder prosecutor Katharina Booth said.

But Denver defense attorney Gary Lozow -- who is not connected to the case of Justin P. Mathis, 37 -- countered that, if anything, such a decision illustrates that the program treats sex offenders like pariahs, making it difficult for them to transition back into society.

"At the beginning of the process and in the preliminary stages, there's an incredibly high price to pay for such an offense," Lozow said of Colorado's approach to treating sex offenders. "There's isolation. There's reporting. There's overtaxing dues to pay. The concept all but makes you a pariah. They require a process that lends itself to failure.

"The idea is to disintegrate you as a human being.""

Are You In Love or Lust? Depends on Which Part of the Brain Is Activated

"Is it love, or just lust? The answer, it turns out, might have to do with which part of our brain is being activated.

The study, published Wednesday in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, analyzed 20 studies related to the effects of sex and love on the body. The research included brain scans of people who viewed erotic photos, photos of their significant others, food and other pleasure triggers.

Two parts of the brain, the insula and the striatum, are responsible for tracking the way in which sexual desire develops into feelings of love, researchers said. Lust triggers parts of the brain that control pleasurable feelings, associated with sex and food, but love triggers parts of the brain associated with habits.

“We assign different language to love and sexual desire and addiction,” said Jim Pfaus, a professor of psychology at Concordia University in Montreal and lead author of the study.

“But really, they’re all being processed in a similar place. When we see this, the idea of love at first sight probably isn’t true. People are feeling desire.”"

A “HIGHLY dangerous” [sic] paedophile [sic] has been given two years in prison for drawing pictures of child abuse.

"AG, who previously abused a girl under the age of 13, was found with 110 pencil sketches in his cell at Bullingdon Prison near Bicester.

He admitted one count of possessing prohibited images of children and was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Monday.

The 38-year-old’s barrister argued the offence was “a thought crime”, but Judge Mary Jane Mowat jailed G for two years.

The maximum sentence is three years, but G was given the one-third discount for an early guilty plea.

Judge Mowat said the pictures were “cartoonish but technically proficient”, adding: “They are absolutely sickening to look at. [and your point is?]

“They provide the clearest insight into the workings of the obsessive child-sex-offender psyche.”"

SOCA sued over Sun 'paedophile leak'

"A retired musician who won damages from The Sun after being branded a paedophile is now taking on the Serious and Organised Crime Agency.

GG says The Sun wrongly claimed he was a paedophile [really?] who had been deported from Thailand after SOCA supplied the paper with his name and passport photo.

The article led him to fear for his life, he says, claiming the allegation was untrue and that he was deported from Thailand in July 2010 after being convicted of remaining in the country without a valid visa.

Sun publisher News Group Newspapers (NGN) later accepted the allegation was untrue and agreed to publish a correction and pay “substantial” damages to G.

He is now suing SOCA for damages of £50,000 and wants to make a statement in open court claiming the organisation breached his human rights.

The March 2011 story – headlined “Smashed: World’s biggest paedo ring” [sic] – claimed he had been arrested by the Operation Rescue investigation into child sex offences.

G, 67, says SOCA’s actions caused him significant distress, anxiety and humiliation.

In a High Court writ, he claims a police officer from SOCA acted without checking the accuracy of the claims and that the body failed to appropriately respond to his complaint.

SOCA replied to his solicitors in March 2012 saying he had recently been charged with possessing indecent images, and querying how these criminal proceedings would impact on his civil claim.

G says he had not been charged with any offence, and that the suggestion he had been was extremely upsetting and distressing. SOCA, he argues, has never apologised or retracted the allegations."

FBI: Child sex offenders turn violent, suicidal

"Gray Alan Combs Jr. was shot to death after he threatened Fairfax County police with a sword last month.

Willis E. Coley, 27, of Alexandria, hanged himself in August.

George N. Kiriacon, 50, committed suicide in a truck in New Carrollton.

The common thread among these three men is that all had been charged with child sex crimes shortly before their violent and/or self-destructive actions.

Law enforcement authorities say they are seeing more incidents as police have increased efforts to apprehend those who produce, distribute and view child porn. Over the past 20 years, federal child sex pornography cases have increased 330 percent -- from 481 in 1999 to 2,069 in 2009.

"It's a life-changing event," Hosko said. "At that moment, their world is collapsed around them. And they think the only way out is at the point of a gun."

A new FBI study found that in 106 cases where an individual committed suicide after he became aware that he was being investigated, 54 killed themselves within 30 days of being contacted by law enforcement. About half of the sample did not have a prior criminal history.

"This is a different type of suicide. This is a suicide motivated not so much by depression but by desperation," said Dr. Michael Bourke, chief psychologist with the U.S. Marshals Service's Behavioral Analysis Unit. Bourke had been studying this issue after the passage of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act in 2006, which authorized the Marshals Service to track down sex offenders who are unregistered or have violated the terms of their registration.

Many of the suspects seemed to have led normal, responsible lives, experts said. Suddenly, they're facing the shame of being exposed, being ostracized by their family and friends, they're looking at spending a long time behind bars, where it's commonly held that the most reviled inmates are those serving time for child sex abuse.

A 2005 study in the United Kingdom found child sex offenders who had no other criminal records were 183 times more likely to commit suicide than the general population.

[So, what is their inspired and sensitive solution, to this outrageous and horrendous ritual slaughter? ...]

The FBI and the U.S. marshals are refining their tactics for approaching subjects, such as determining if the target has a gun and using a force team to make arrests or serve warrants.

Registered sex offenders in Louisiana now have to share their sex offender status on social website like Facebook.

"The author of the bill is Representative Jeff Thompson from Bossier City.

He says it's designed to create more accountability for the people who come into your home through your computer.

This law is the latest attempt by legislators to crack down on child sex predators online. But prosecutors say it's purpose is not to prevent those sex crimes, but to prosecute those who commit them and fail to register.

"This is one of those deals that requires a person to say their a sex offender on Facebook, so what can we do if they don't? Same thing we do if they don't have their sex offender id car, we arrest them and prosecute them for it," said Caddo Assistant DA, Hugo Holland.

Holland says Thompson consulted with the DA's Office while crafting the bill, and the DA's Office through offered support.

A law that prohibited sex offenders from using social websites completely was recently struck down by the courts and deemed unconstitutional. Thompson believes his legislation can easily stand up to constitutional scrutiny because it's only requiring those who already register to share that information on social websites."

Federal judge bans sex offenders from social networking

"INDIANAPOLIS — A federal judge has upheld an Indiana law banning registered sex offenders from accessing Facebook and other social-networking sites used by children.

Judge Tanya Walton Pratt said in an 18-page order Friday that the state has a strong interest in protecting children and that the rest of the Internet remains open to those who have been convicted.

“Social networking, chat rooms, and instant messaging programs have effectively created a ‘virtual playground’ for sexual predators to lurk,” [sic] Pratt wrote in the ruling, citing a 2006 report by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that found that one in seven youths had received online sexual solicitations and that one in three had been exposed to unwanted sexual material online [from who, exactly?]"

We recommend to him next time if he is to commit a crime on a computer, use Peter Guttman's deletion algorithm (duh!) and at least make it take longer than 30 seconds for forensics to confirm what you have on your computer, otherwise they'd get a warrant to lock you up in less than a day."

"And no, before you get any ideas Oldfield, it won't stop them finding what's on your computer, it wasn't designed for that, it was designed to remove remnants of files that corrupt very compressed filesystems, so suck a fart out of my arse - Steven Walker"

"Personally, we think he should buy himself a sex doll before he goes out and hurts children in Leeds, where he now lives and continues his offences and paedophile activitism."

"Mr Oldfield currently uses TOR to view indecent images of children. When we told him that we'd been tracking his internet activities, he stopped blogging for nearly a week whilst he deleted the content of his computer. He thinks we were stupid."

"He is the leader of a paedophile ring, The OSC, whose website is here, which stands for 'The Online Sex Offenders Community'. We were contacted by them after being featured in The Sun on Sunday. Amongst making derogatory references to Samantha, they threatened to stalk us and even kill us because they strongly express dissent towards our campaign."

"This is quite typical as there are generally two types of paedophile; paedophiles who think that children are attracted to them and paedophiles who don't really care about the child and just want to abuse them anyway.

Man searched at airport on suspicion of paedophilia ‘because he had a camera and a boyfriend’

"The officer thought the man looked as though he was 'involved in paedophilia [sic]'

A gay man was stopped at Gatwick airport last year by a Border Force officer who suspected he was ‘involved in paedophilia’ because he had a camera and a boyfriend, a report into controls at the airport has revealed.

The incident was recorded during observations of staff behaviour as part of an inspection at Gatwick airport’s north terminal by the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration’s office, and highlighted by journalist David Hencke.

The report said some officers had “poor understanding of appropriate selection indicators and risk profiles in determining which passengers to challenge and in some cases were making judgements based on stereotypes.”

At the incident in question, inspectors observed a Border Force officer stopping a gay man who was travelling with his partner and whom the officer thought “might be involved in paedophilia”."

"SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – Going after child pornographers is about to become a higher priority in Santa Clara County.

Friday, Santa Clara County approved its 2013 budget – it’s a $4.1 Billion budget which includes funding for a new child exploitation unit within the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department.

At any given time, the county has close to two-dozen warrants ready to be served on suspects accused of peddling child pornography.

If you look at the statistics, 70 – 80% of those who are online looking at child porn have either molested a child or will molest a child and so that’s very alarming to us and so we were able to create that unit to fight,” explained Supervisor George Shirakawa"

Sexualisation of Children - Protecting Innocence Online

"At long last there is a reality check going on about the dangers children face on the internet from pornography. We read with horror of children as young as eight admitting to pornography addiction, or the 12-year-old boy who raped a nine year old girl because he wanted to 'feel grown up' after viewing explicit images. As with so many other things in life, it has had to reach crisis-point before people begin sitting up and taking notice. "

The journalist's fallacy

Tim objects to this:

A generation of youngsters may be developing a skewed view of sex from pornography, a court has heard, after a 12-year-old schoolboy raped and sexually assaulted a younger girl after copying a hardcore film he watched on the internet.

He's right to object. This is an example of what we might call the "journalist's fallacy" - though in this case it's perpetrated by someone from a profession even more ignorant of statistics than journalists. I mean by this the tendency to draw strong inferences from one or two observations, without asking: are these observations a representative sample? In this example, we have a good reason to suspect not; 12-year-old rapists are rare, whilst internet porn is ubiquitous.

I call this the journalist's fallacy (though it's related to the availability heuristic) because journalists are especially prone to it - perhaps because they know that a human interest story or lively image makes for "better writing" than statistical evidence, and they mistake good writing for good thinking*.

Dangerous And Incorrect Titles, Create Actual Danger

Child porn images found on computer during raid

"A COLLECTION of indecent pictures of children were found on a man's computer by police who raided his home.

The 55-year-old from Beeston was arrested on Monday as part of a national crackdown on paedophiles [sic] holding computer images.

Officers who ran a forensic search of the man's computer found around 20 images.

They were graded from one to three, on a scale which goes to a maximum of five for the most serious [sic] images.

He was cautioned and placed on the sex offenders' register [sic] for two years after admitting the offence. He is now being monitored by the force's Dangerous Persons [sic] Management Unit.

A second Beeston man was arrested on Tuesday as part of the operation. The 28-year-old's computer was also seized for further examination and he has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Both arrests were made as part of the UK-wide Operation Tharsley, co-ordinated by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.

It involved more than 40 police forces and led to the arrest of 76 people.

The men arrested in Beeston are not thought to be connected to each other and neither is thought to be part of a wider ring of offenders.

Detective Inspector Martin Hillier said: "These men are now on our radar – we have sent them a very clear message that we are watching."



During a public relations exercise, we think you will find.

We are certain, Detective Inspector Martin Hillier should compare the law to reality, before he goes around creating his made-up, incorrect and dangerous departmental titles.

As we have stated, before, and we will confirm, again-and-again, there is nothing Sexual (even as defined, in other Statutes) about owning (i.e. possessing, making=downloading, printing, viewing, or even taking) an image, and, because a statute defines a term, for usage within than Statute, it does not make it reality.  

Everyone is potentially-dangerous, and an operational definition, within a Statute, does not make them actually-dangerous.

Even the draconian USA would not allow such defamation and persecution of ex-offenders:

"United States

The "dangerous offender" approach is unconstitutional in the United States where a person convicted of a crime must be released from criminal incarceration at end of sentence. If there is a question that the person may continue to be dangerous, he can be civilly committed if, through a judicial hearing, it is determined that a concurrent mental disorder makes it likely that he will continue to be dangerous because he lacks any self control. [see MHA 2007, in England and Wales]"
We will also make it quite clear, right now, that the futile and damaging past-time, of busting P2P users, is like shooting fish in a barrel; be prepared to hear how 'successful' Operation Tharsley has been.

Then be prepared to note how few 'victims' are reported; except, that will not be splashed all over the media.
