  1. SOSEN articles foreword thinking in January of 2014 we did an article about who actually commits new sex crimes specifically pointed at police officers and the fact that they are up to 14 times more likely to be involved in the new sex crime than someone on the registry and yes there are about the same number of officers as there are people on the registry. YES what I said is correct people in law-enforcement are responsible for 3% of the new sex crimes committed in the United States and are at least 14 times more likely to be involved in the new sex crime than someone on the registry the reality of it is that the general public it is also at more likely to be involved in the new sex crime than someone on the registry. this is another one of those situations where you cannot look at the graph and draw a specific conclusion from it all though it makes it look like law-enforcement is more likely per hundred thousand to be involved in a new sex crime than ordinary citizens there are far more ordinary citizens out there in other words a larger amount of hundred thousands thereby ordinary citizens not on the registry are more likely to be involved in a new sex crime than anyone else. this is one of the reasons that you can't take data at its face value you have to go in and look at the numbers and tear the information apart to get at the truth.Here’s the breakdown thus far, in the Percentage of new sex crimesClose acquaintances (59%)Family members (34%)Police officers 3.0%Teachers 00.7%Clergy 00.3%strangers 2% those who have not been convicted of a sex crime (note: this could include somebody that was met at a party or a street dance and does not necessarily mean an adult)People on the registry/previously convicted 00.17%. that is 17/100s of 1%.http://sosen.org/blog/2014/01/20/who-really-commits-new-sex-crimes.html
