Agreed, the recidivism rates are important. It’s interesting; I’ve seen a couple of different reports lately stating the rates are between 1-5%. Assuming it’s in the middle, say 3% of the 1 million registered citizens would be 30,000. Granted, that number sounds high. However, an even higher number is the 970,000 that have a zero recidivism rate. Add in the over 90% chance that most sex crimes are committed by someone close to the victim, and basically the obvious question becomes…How do we justify taxpayer money, police time spent monitoring and public disemination of information regarding 970,000 people that statistically will never commit another sex crime?
