A Year Later, Nebraska News Media Appear Unaware of UNO Research

It has been a year since the release of the University of Nebraska-Omaha research showing that sex offenders have an extremely low rate of reoffense. It is possibly the lowest among any former offenders.

A second UNO study documents the damage done to families and to public safety by current Nebraska law.

Despite this good work done in their own backyard, Nebraska news media continue to breathlessly make stories on the rare occasions when a registered citizen reoffends. Little to no depth or serious thinking about this “police-blotter” mentality. The one story that was produced about the UNO recidivism study had a glaring error in it that never was corrected.

Elsewhere in the nation, as evidenced here and here, we are getting accurate and thoughtful reporting on this issue. Nebraskans Unafraid will continue to help you look beyond the borders of the state for reliable reporting.
