Sex OffenderStatistics




According to the US Military, as of January 2011 a total of 4,352 soldiers have been killed since the beginning of the war in Iraq.

4 are MIA.

30,182 have been wounded.

This gives us a total of 34,538 soldiers in the last six and a half years.

In comparison, as of January, 2011, according to NISMART2, 58,200 children are abducted by non-family members every year.

Of these, 58,085 are simply never heard from again. Every year. They are, in essence, MIA.

Of the remaining 115,64 are found alive but emotionally scarred for life (wounded). Every year.

46 are found dead every year.

The war in Iraq began in March, 2003. In the intervening six and a half years 299 children have been found dead and 377,552 have gone MIA.

If all those numbers are confusing, you can see it laid out plainly in the chart below:

As of January, 2011 Soldiers in Iraq Children in America
Missing 4 377,552
Wounded 30,182 4,160
Confirmed Dead 4,352 299
Total: 34,538 382,011


These children who have been kidnapped, abused and murdered are not adults and they did not enlist. They were playing in the park or their yards, walking to and from school, walking to a friend's house, grandma's house, or even just sleeping in their own beds at home.

When there are over 50 registered sex offenders in a neighborhood, the likelihood of a child disappearing into the hands of one of these predators is as likely as having a child devoured if there were 50 wild cougars in that neighborhood.

Facts and Figures



  Statistics are not just numbers collected and labeled. They represent real people and real children.

  It is required that sex offenders register now in most states. The statistics on the numbers of offenders IN THE AREAS WHERE THEY WERE CONVICTED are readily available. Once paroled, however, they may, with permission, move about the country. Because of this fact, it is difficult to ascertain exactly how many offenders there are in one county at one time.

  There are problems with statistics. For example, molestation and incest are a separate crime. They may be statistically grouped into "Other Sex Offenses." Also, it is a general practice to "seal files" that regard children in court cases in order to protect the child, therefore these statistics are not available. Many cases that involve young children are not included on the State and Federal records. Consequently, the numbers that are available in regards to children being offended are very low in comparison to the real numbers.

  We are all able to see the horrifying growth of pictures of missing children on our courthouse walls. We have no choice but to wonder how many kidnapped and missing children were taken to be molested. Most importantly, we helplessly wonder how many children are being sexually molested every day. Every unsupervised sex predator will molest more than one child. It is no mystery, then, that there are so many missing children, when one views the number of sex offenders out on parole.

  When child molestation becomes an issue that people are no longer uncomfortable addressing, statistics will become more readily accessible.

  
"Silence, Ignorance and Apathy are the child predator's greatest   allies." - Dr. Nancy Faulkner


  MASPAL believes there is a strong connection between the numbers of sex offenders and the numbers of missing, murdered and violated children. To this end, we are compiling statistics to construct a graph that will show at a glance this correlation.
