People have become so mentally lazy that they rely on “media experts” to tell them what to think on just about any given topic. Lost is the idea of independent critical thought and weighing the evidence for one’s self. Law & Order: SVU is treated as a documentary and not a fictitious overly dramatized TV series solely designed as a political weapon to keep the sex offender hysteria stirred to a frenzied level.
It’s more comfortable to look outward for the threats to their children’s sexual innocence than it is to look inward at one’s on circle of family and friends. It’s easier to focus on “the other” than “one’s own”.
It just bolsters a fact we all know. We may be released back into the community, but the laws are written expressly to ensure we are never a part of the community. We are excluded from as much of society as can possibly be legally defended. The message is, “You are among us, but we will NEVER AGAIN allow you to be one of us.”
