30 suspected pedophiles [sic] arrested in massive sting

"Police pose as 10-year-olds in chat rooms to get to suspects; senior officers: We're startled by scope of threat.

Head central investigations Dep.-Cmdr. Moti Aderi

Some 30 suspected pedophiles were arrested in early morning raids across the country on Tuesday, in the largest police operation against alleged sex offenders to date.

The arrests came after officers from the computer crimes unit of the central police district posed as a young girl and a young boy on popular chat forums, attracting the attention of suspects who lurked on the sites and preyed on minors.

After getting their targets to enter personal one-to-one chats, the suspects made phone contact, and were answered by an undercover female officer pretending to be a child.

Police were shocked at the ease with which innocent online conversations quickly became perversely sexual. In some cases, suspects carried out lewd acts on web cameras, and encouraged sexual acts on the part of the children they believed they were talking to."

Awkward Truths

The awkward truth about lie detectors

“What number of wrongful convictions are we comfortable with?” asks Prof Wiseman. “You get some with all types of evidence. But I suspect that if we start using polygraphs more widely, we could end up with as many as five to 10 per cent of cases ending in an innocent person being convicted. I think most people would find that completely unacceptable.” Is that really justice?"

The child safety lottery

"The registry was intended to prevent other children from falling victim to a similar fate, a desire shared by everyone. But the laws have so drastically expanded what qualifies as a sex offense, there are now over 700,000 Americans on the registry, many of whom have never harmed a child and are unlikely to ever harm a child, rendering it a self-defeating tool."

"The counterproductive catch-all of supposed sex offenders. Misplaced anxiety about child protection makes judicial policy on sex offenders a blunt instrument that needlessly blights lives."

Rape, violence and jailbreaks: what inmates can watch on prison DVDs

"Movies showing graphic rape scenes, brutal violence and jailbreaks are available to inmates at a Welsh prison holding hundreds of sex offenders, Wales on Sunday can today reveal.

Prisoners held at HMP Usk in Monmouthshire have access to a library of 550 DVDs – including gruesome horror flicks and movies showing sexual violence and the seedy criminal underworld of gangs and drugs.

The selection has been condemned as “completely and utterly inappropriate” by a prisons experts and leading politicians.

Among the library of DVDs available to inmates are gory 18-rated horror films The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal and crime thriller The Bank Job – about a major bank robbery.

Cons at the prison – which mainly holds sex offenders – can also access 1991 fugitive thriller Thelma & Louise, which features a scene showing an attempted rape, and box office hit Deliverance, which features a notorious male rape scene."

Where Politics Trumps Scientific Truth

The APA's and the Pedophilia Controversy

"Psychiatric Association Reverses Pedophile Diagnostic Change, Returns to Original Criteria

"APA said that no matter what the research showed either way about the psychological effects of pedophile relationships--pedophilia remained, in its opinion, "morally" wrong.

Moral Philosophy and the Pedophilia Problem

Morally wrong? This was an odd statement indeed from a scientific organization. What, then, was the APA's moral position on, say...adultery or abortion? What about sexually open relationships? Would APA have an official position on polygamy? The very fact that APA admitted to holding a moral viewpoint on a psychological issue ought to have opened up a broad new challenge to psychology's authority and its moral presumptions as our culture's new secular priesthood.

Indeed, the time would was then ripe for moral philosophers to issue a fruitful challenge to the entire concept of psychological health--its inherent limitations, its value-laden nature, and its utter meaningless without dependence on an underlying social-moral philosophy.

The Psychological Association must have been aware of the implications of its statement about the immorality of pedophilia, because the March 2002 issue of the American Psychologist carried an official article stating that what the association had learned from the Rind fiasco was--among other lessons--that 1) APA must build bridges to conservative groups, and 2) in the future, psychology must be prepared to defend its validity as a science."

BNP ‘cashing in’ on Da Vinci rapist row as Nick Griffin plans to join protestors

"SDL activists with placards from the BNP s Pro Fam group

BNP leader Nick Griffin has been accused of attempting to “cash in” on local protests against Da Vinci rapist Robert Greens by addressing a rally in Dalkeith tomorrow.

Members of the far-right party are due to meet at the Adventure Playground in Dalkeith before heading to the town centre where they will stage a demonstration against Greens being rehoused near to where he raped a Dutch

More than 50 members are expected to attend the rally.

"BNP LEADER Nick Griffin has been accused of “cashing in” on protests against Da Vinci Rapist Robert Greens.

The BNP will meet at the Adventure Playgound in Dalkeith before heading to the town centre where demonstrations against Robert Greens will begin.

Residents began to protest when Greens was re-housed to Bonnyrigg, four-miles away from where he raped a Dutch student in 2005.

David Orr, BNP Scotland’s national organiser, said: “I phoned Nick about the Robert Greens protest and he agreed that it was disgusting that this guy has been re-housed back in the community. He straight away agreed to come and support the people of Midlothain.

Psychiatric treatment sought as alternative to prison for woman who falsely accused father of sex assault

"Police called after self-inflicted injuries resulted in hospitalization

CALGARY ­­­­— A 40-year-old Calgary woman who falsely accused her father of sexually assaulting her should undergo psychiatric counselling and not be sentenced to prison, her lawyer told a provincial court Friday.

On Oct. 5, 2010, Lori Lee Gnam told police, hospital staff and social workers that her father kicked her in the stomach and then injured her during a sexual assault, according to an agreed statement of facts."

Did Grief Turn Loving Mom Into Sex Offender?

"Kevin and Linda Lusk were high school sweethearts who reconnected and married 15 years later. Kevin Lusk said he stands by his wife, despite the small town sex scandal linking her and a teenage boy.

In April, 2010, the small town was suddenly rocked by a rumor that Frank's son Bubba, then 14, engaged in an inappropriate relationship with Linda Lusk -- a relationship that the teenager alleges culminated in oral sex.

Bubba didn't deny the rumors. In fact, the teen bragged about it to his friends.

Lusk, he would later tell "20/20," didn't take advantage of him.

"I basically knew what I was doing," he said.

His mother, Heidi Frank, saw it differently.

"In my eyes, I still, as a mother, see a vulnerable 14-year-old child," she said."


Even A Glimmer Of Self-Worth

Weekend Edition July 27-29, 2012

The Self-Identity of a Sex Offender

"Attitude, far from being “everything”, is simply an offshoot of the self-identity. People are constantly changing their self-identities, either to project the desired image or to gain personal growth. How do you perceive yourself? How much do you accept what other people want of you? Do their perceptions of you match what you want to portray?

Surely, a person who is made to feel bad about herself will eventually believe it. That’s part of the power of the system. But no one can swallow this identity as whole-heartedly or as fully as the system would like. Even a glimmer of self-worth contradicts the unspoken maxim: you are a sex offender. You are the scum of society."

Not serious about predators

"The recent murder of a nine-year girl by a sex offender in Tongyeong, South Gyeongsang, raised an alarm on sex crimes. More than five million have logged into the Web site www.sexoffender.go.kr, which provides information on sex offenders with criminal records over the past four days. But anyone who has tried to visit the site will have sworn at his or her computer.

The government should increase the amount of information to ease the public’s concerns. The government shouldn’t risk violating constitutional rights of privacy, but it should consider stretching the information provided within a permissible scope before revising the law for the sake of enhancing the safety of youngsters. What is imperative is public safety and protecting our children from predators." [and there lies your mistake].

Child porn man to leave Matlock

"A repeat child porn offender is leaving town following attempts by his neighbours to have him evicted from his home.

In a letter to the Mercury, PH, of Whitewood Way, Starkholmes, announced he is leaving town ‘soon’.

The move has come about after his concerned neighbours submitted the petition to Dales Housing.

The housing association handed the 63-year-old a notice of repossession - meaning he could be removed for his home at any time - however he and his partner have taken it upon themselves to leave.

There was uproar following the self-employed plasterer’s conviction for viewing child pornography last month."

Headteacher reports artist mother to police for pictures of her son

""My son's headteacher called the police in 2010 to my son's primary school, after seeing pictures of my son on my website. I had had a performance at the Courtauld Institute and my son's teacher missed it so I gave her a video of myself and my son. My son's class viewed it, I got good feedback from the teacher, and I heard nothing else about it until almost a year later. The headteacher had a look at my video and then started looking at my website. It was never made clear why she started searching on my website; she said she had concerns and had a right to act on them.

She told me that she was alarmed at a picture on my site of him in the bathtub, all typical Sally Man/mother-photography, etc. type work. Actually he had a Halloween mask on, and while there were other photos of him on my site, and you could assume it was him, his face was unidentifiable and she didn't know for sure. After consulting the school governor she rang the police - who said nothing was wrong with the images on my site (ie, no porn) - but they then had an obligation to call social services."

Police are seeking information from family members after the Sydney home of a "black magic holy man" convicted of manipulating women into having sex was shot at.

Shots were fired into the home at Union Street, Dulwich Hill, at about 12.30am (AEST) on Friday.

The home is co-owned by sex criminal Tony Golossian, who was jailed for 15 years in 2011.

Golossian, 64, was found guilty of manipulating women into sex prayer sessions in hotel rooms, telling his victims black magic curses had been placed on them and their families.

Two children, two women and two men, who are believed to be relations of Golossian, were at home at the time.

A large bullet hole was found in the front door, but no one was injured."

Sex offenders scandal [sic] as beasts [offensive and inflammatory]manage to beat register [sic] by paying just £40 for new ID

"AT least 37 sex offenders in Scotland have used a legal loophole [sic] to change their names – making a mockery of the sex offenders register [sic].

A Daily Record investigation has discovered it is perfectly legal, and extremely easy, for paedophiles and rapists to change their names.

They can then use their new identities to avoid monitoring by the authorities [sic].

The 37 cases we have uncovered all involve name-changing offenders who were discovered by the police.

Many more may have taken on new identities without anyone knowing, and could now be roaming the streets [sic] unchecked.[sic]

With those documents in place, his entire history effectively disappears [sic] – unless someone happens to realise who he really is [sic].

A Scottish Government spokeswoman said: “The Sexual Offences Act 2003 requires registered sex offenders to inform police of any and all names they may use.

“Law enforcement agencies are working more closely together than ever before to assess and monitor convicted sex offenders, and now have tougher powers than ever before to manage these individuals upon release.

“A full risk assessment is carried out and enforcement agencies have a range of measures they can deploy for high-risk offenders.

“Measures include surveillance, electronic tagging, curfews, and prohibitions on where convicted sex offenders can go and who they contact.”"

Paedophile [sic] warning

"LOCAL people in Riverchapel should have warned [sic] that they had a man he described as an 'active paedophile' [sic] residing in their midst, Cllr. Robbie Ireton claimed last week. Speaking at the July meeting of Wexford County Council, he wanted to know who was responsible for the presence of the man, who had a ten year jail sentence on his record.

Cllr. Ireton said that the child molester, who came from Kerry and was on social welfare, had been resident in one house and then moved to another. Director of services Tony Larkin pointed out that, as far as he knew, the individual had rented a house privately and there was no vetting process to monitor such an arrangement.

The council would only become involved with accommodating a former prisoner if he presented himself as homeless, he added."


More Madness In The USA

Counting Crimes When Defendants Possess Many Images of Child Pornography on Several Devices

"Imagine a defendant in a child pornography case has two computers in his home. Each computer contains twenty images of child pornography. Has the defendant committed one single crime of possessing forty images? Or has he committed two crimes of possessing twenty images each? Alternatively, has the defendant committed forty distinct crimes of possession? Put another way, should the number of crimes be determined by the number of images, the number of physical devices, or simply grouped together as a single offense?

Courts have answered these questions by considering the Double Jeopardy Clause of the Fifth Amendment, which instructs that “nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb.” Under this provision, a defendant cannot be punished twice for the same act. The difficult question is, what exactly is the “act” prohibited by child pornography laws? Courts have answered this question by undertaking careful and sometimes hypertechnical readings of the different laws that punish possession of child pornography. As a result, there is no one answer to the question. Under recent cases, at least, the answer depends on the specific statute.

"[T]he legislature intended these statutes to criminalize each image that constitutes child pornography because its very existence harms the victim it depicts [sic]. Even identical images, therefore, result in separate prosecution and punishment."

Read about it: "Clallam County prosecutor: “Vigilantism has no part in a civilized society and will not be tolerated by law enforcement or prosecutors in this county,"

7/5/2012: A $600,000 settlement and 30 years later, self-proclaimed sexual abuse victim William Lynch enters a senior citizen care facility and savagely beats the 69-year-old alleged abuser. A jury acquits him of all charges. Read about it: Vigilante attack on elderly man described as "a rapist" with no proof unpunished and cheered by the public

There's a new trend now. Instead of being carried out by thuggish young men with supposed interests in child safety, or middle-aged supposed sexual abuse victims looking for revenge, a different type of vigilante martyr is emerging: the young, pretty female rape survivor. Meet the new face: Savannah Dietrich gets away with breaking the law and putting others in danger, simply because she's pretty and endured sexual assault.

It's almost the perfect, untouchable strategy. It appeals to so many: other survivors victims, anyone with a loved one who has been violated, people who wouldn't typically even be overly interested in the subject but whose good intentions are exploited by the slanted portrayal of a blatant, calculated choice to not only evade the law, but to cause harm to others. It's all okay, though, since she was raped."

Deputy Naughten also wants convicted sex offenders to be tagged, claiming there were nearly 2,400 sexual offences in 2011.

He said his proposals were modelled on Sarah’s Law [sic] in the UK after Sarah Payne, eight, was brutally murdered in 2000 by sex fiend Roy Whiting.

Mr Naughten said: “This Bill, while taking a similar approach to Sarah’s Law [sic], restricts the right to make requests for disclosure to parents and guardians of a child or vulnerable adult who can show reason for disclosure.”

Mr Naughten’s call also follows reports last week that gardai have launched a probe into a suspected organised child sex ring in Donegal."

The Damage of Overvaluing Virginity

"A very good friend of mine recently broke up with her boyfriend. They were both Christians, very involved in the church and on the outside seemed happy. I was not shocked when they broke up though, because she had confessed to me their biggest problem: He would not let go of the fact that she was not a virgin. Over and over he brought up that he needed to "mourn what was lost," even though these conversations would often end with her in tears. His fixation on the fact that she had previously had sex, even though she was repentant about this, clouded their relationship. He was devastated when she broke up with him, and could never admit anything he'd done wrong.

There is something seriously wrong with how much he, and so many other Christians, value virginity."

When Lenore Skenazy was growing up in Wilmette, Ill., in the 1960s, she routinely walked the four blocks between her home and her kindergarten all by herself. She knew to stay safe near traffic and not go anywhere with a stranger. And to help her cross the street was a friendly crossing guard — a sixth-grader named Joey. “For the record, I ended up marrying him,” she laughs.

That a kindergartner was allowed to toddle four blocks without adult supervision seems extraordinary now, even though cities are at least as safe for children today as they were then. Crime is at a 40-year low. The percentage of kids fatally hit by cars has been dropping for decades. And the child abductors that leer from every corner are tabloid fantasy — only about 100 kids, out of tens of millions, are kidnapped in public by a stranger each year."

Climate of fear surrounds children’s sports coaches

"Regulations designed to protect children who take part in sports from sex abuse have created a climate of fear for coaches, according to new research. London 2012 Olympics: Climate of fear surrounds children’s sports coaches The researchers, who interviewed around 100 coaches from a range of sports, found that swimming was regarded as the riskiest sport of all, with anyone, particularly older men, who wanted to coach being viewed with suspicion.

Many coaches are so fearful of being accused of abuse that sports training has become a strict 'no touch’ zone, even in potentially dangerous situations, it is claimed.

Researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University found that the prioritisation of child protection may jeopardise attempts to widen participation in sport.

The study is the first to look at the issue of 'touching’ within sport in the UK. It found that some coaches have given up working with children for fear of any repercussions or false accusations."

Teacher at girls’ school banned from teaching for 'obsession with sex’

"A teacher at an all girls’ school has been banned from classrooms after being accused of being “obsessed with sex”.

Dr Michael Davis, a fellow of the Royal Historical Society, has now been banned from teaching in England

As an expert in medieval history and the author of a series of historical novels, he seemed like an obvious candidate for a teaching role at a girls’ school.

And when Dr Michael Davis began work, he was praised by colleagues for the rigour and discipline in his classroom.

But for pupils, there was a problem – his lessons seemed more like Horrible Histories, dwelling on the seedier side of life in bygone days.

Children said his lessons were peppered with adult terms and slang, with references to “sex”, “breasts” and “rape”. He told one class that Henry VIII’s split with Rome was hastened because Anne Boleyn had “a bun in the oven”.

A class of 11 and 12 year olds were told that in the Middle Ages they would already have been married off, to men of his age. Girls aged 14 and 15 were taught to write essays using the mnemonic “SEX” – S for structure, E for evidence and X for explanation."

The Cognitive Distortions Of The Typical UK 'Judge' - And Others

9:00am Saturday 21st July 2012

Cononley children’s worker is spared jail over porn pictures

"A man who worked with children has been given a suspended jail sentence for possessing and distributing child porn images.

Investigators found nearly 200 indecent images on computers, including some at the most serious levels four and five.

Sentencing PB to 12 months’ imprisonment suspended for two years, Judge Colin Burn said the images were obscene, pornographic or paedophilic [sic]. He said: “They are illegal. They are offensive. And regardless of how many are distributed, regardless as to how graphic they actually are, the reality is that when these images depict real children, they are real children who are really being abused and are really having their lives ruined.

“That is happening to them for the gratification of people like you. And that is why the possession and distribution of them is so serious."




We read this faulty logic, disinformation and hyperbole, time-and-time-again, from the UK courts' obiter dicta. This is a prize piece and deserves correction ...

"Sentencing PB to 12 months’ imprisonment suspended for two years, Judge Colin Burn said" ...

"the images were obscene"

No, this was an indecent image offence trial.

If you believe them to be obscene (i.e. deprave and corrupt), provide your evidence.


Possibly. So?

"or paedophilic"

An image cannot be 'paedophilic'.

"“They are illegal."


"They are offensive"

Perhaps to you and others. So what?

"And regardless of how many are distributed, regardless as to how graphic they actually are, the reality is that when these images depict real children,"

Good, images depicting - not real anythings, at all. That is The Reality.

"they are real children"

Oh dear, the gross logical fail, begins ...

"who are really being abused"

... which continues ...

"and are really having their lives ruined."

You have no idea, what happened in the lives of the people depicted in the images, for good or bad, but, it really does not matter, because it follows from your continuing logical fallacy ...

That is happening to them for the gratification of people like you."

... continuing ...

Really? Where is you evidence? In any case, what is wrong with harmless and healthy gratification?

"And that is why the possession and distribution of them is so serious."

All based on logical fallacy, disinformation and lack of evidence.

Those are only a few reasons, why the laws are faulty, unethical, harmful and dangerous.

As long as there is a market"


"for those images, those wretched children"

The what?

"will continue [sic] to be horribly abused around the world.

As usual, finish with a flourish of weasel words and emotive, unevidenced, hyperbole.

Degrees of separation, Mr Burn, degrees of separation ...  oh, and knowledge and acknowledgment of the actual evidence assists us, on the road to truth.

The OSC.

Sex offenders face mandatory lie detector tests

"Mandatory lie detector tests found to make sex offenders more honest and cut reoffending on release from prison

Rapists and other serious sex offenders may be forced to take lie detector tests when they leave prison, to reduce the chance of them of re-offending.

The No 10 source said: "It's vital that we protect the public from serious sex offenders. That's why the conditions after they leave prison need to be both strict and rigorously enforced.

"The pilot schemes using lie detectors to manage offenders in the community have been a success. So now we're looking at how it could be rolled out to provide probation officers with more information to manage the most serious offenders." Hertfordshire police said that last November the force tested "low level" sex offenders, and many presented a higher risk to children than previous estimates. Of 15 offenders tested, eight failed and six passed. One was caught trying to cheat by breathing erratically and talking slowly.

Downing Street is confident that extending the lie detector tests across England and Wales will not leave the government vulnerable to a challenge at the European court of human rights. When an offender took a case to Strasbourg under article 8 of the human rights convention the lie detector was deemed a proportionate way of preventing crime."

Mandatory polygraph testing for sex offenders is set to be rolled out across England and Wales following a successful pilot scheme, ministers say.

Polygraph tests, often referred to as lie detector tests, measure blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and levels of perspiration.

Experts use the tests to assess whether an individual is answering questions truthfully. "

Colorado’s pricey polygraph testing of sex offenders under fire as critics target accuracy, expense

"But a bipartisan cross-section of legislators and a retired judge have joined with offenders and their families to question the validity of the tests.  They contend too much weight is placed on what they argue is little more than junk science.  Flawed polygraphs can complicate efforts for low-risk sex offenders to get paroled and lead to new restrictions for parolees or probationers, critics say.  Failure to take the tests can lead to sanctions, including eventual revocation to prison."

"“The Constitution applies to everyone,” Maes said. “It doesn’t apply to everyone except sex offenders. The Constitution was designed to protect those that might be the most easily attacked by the government, even sex offenders. You don’t see polygraphs in any other area of the law. You can be the most prolific bad-check writer ever and you don’t have to take them, but you do if you’re a sex offender.”"

Sex offenders testify against social networking ban

"One after another, nearly a dozen John Does took the stand in a fifth-floor federal courtroom in Lincoln this week.

You wouldn't know it by looking, but they all are convicted of crimes that landed them on the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry.

And they all are suing the state over changes state lawmakers made to it in 2009 -- specifically, a provision that says they have to provide to their local sheriff's office any remote communication device identifiers and addresses, including serial numbers, telephone numbers and account numbers.

They're also suing over a provision that sets out a penalty for those who knowingly and intentionally use any social networking site, instant messaging or chat room service that allows anyone younger than 18 to access or use it.

The state says the laws serve a significant governmental interest: to protect children from predators [sic]

The three dozen John Does say they violate their First Amendment rights and that, as written, the definitions could be construed to apply even to landline phone calls, cellphone texts and blogs.

Among those who testified were business consultants, IT contractors and retailers who make musical instruments and sell high-end car stereos.

Wednesday morning, one man, who has a software design and consultant business in Omaha, said the Internet is an extension of the real world."

Attorney General says the Common Law does not allow for a sex offender register

"Bermudian laws do not allow for the Sex Offenders Registry to be in the public domain, according to Attorney General Kim Wilson.

She further denied that she has been in meetings with interest groups to develop a protocol for the release of information, saying that the protocol has been in place since 2009.

Several parents of young sexual assault victims have called for the sexual offenders registry to be available to the public, as with similar registers in the United States.

During yesterdays sitting of the Senate, Ms Wilson said: “Whilst historically there have been demands from some segments of the community for a US styled sex offenders register in the wake of convictions for sexual offences, Bermuda’s laws, which are modelled on UK law, do not allow for the establishment of such a register.”

She explained that information regarding sex offenders can be released on a case-by-case basis if it is found the individual presents a risk of serious harm to the health and safety of the public, an affected group of people or an individual."

Caitlyn Nelson, 20, and her boyfriend David Smith, 21, decided to move out of the street occupied by Greens because they felt “caged” by the sex offender. They said they could no longer bear looking out of their window and seeing the home of the man who violently raped a Dutch student in 2005.

It came as another couple living near the home of the convicted sex offender were seen packing up their belongings and moving out."

Offender behaviour not tackled before release - report

"Prisoner behind bars Many prisons do not have the capacity to run courses aimed at reducing re-offending rates

Serious criminals are leaving prison not having been on programmes designed to stop reoffending, says a report.

Prisons and probation inspectors for England and Wales found no plans to deliver treatment programmes to a third of sex offenders needing them.

Most of the 11 prisons examined lacked capacity to meet demand for courses.

But they said a significant culture shift among staff was also needed, pointing out that a new computer system, designed to improve the management of prisoners, was not being used properly.

Mr Hardwick said: "On the face of it, it is just really disturbing. What's happening on the ground now in terms of offender management is too poor in too many places and needs to be galvanised."

He said: "Sex offenders are being released without adequate interventions to reduce the risk that they will re-offend."

Steve Woodgate, the lead inspector, said: "One in four people in prison in this sample not having been assessed is a bit scary."

He said they were "not being followed up, not being reviewed, nobody's really on the case".

She said: "Some prisoners, and most worryingly, some sexual offenders, are not always able to access the treatment they need to change their behaviour before their release."

NOMS chief executive officer Michael Spurr said there had been a 5% reduction in reoffending since 2000.

"This reflects much better case management both in prison and the community," he said.

"We are targeting resources to reduce risk to the public. Over 1,000 sex offenders completed programmes in custody last year and we will continue to prioritise work on the basis of risk."

He said that transforming the management of offenders was a "significant challenge".

"We have made real progress but accept there is more to be done to break the cycle of reoffending."

Ms Calderbank said if offender management and rehabilitation were not given the same priority as punishment and containment "we will continue to lock up large numbers of people at increasing cost but to very little effect".

"We were looking for work that was done with prisoners during the course of their sentence which was actually about changing the way they thought," she told BBC Radio 4's Today programme."

Da Vinci rapist breaks his silence to protester: Just get me out of here

"DA Vinci rapist Robert Greens has broken his silence to reveal he has a girlfriend in the south of England and wants to leave Midlothian to go and live with her.

It emerged that Greens, who has faced a barrage of protest since his release, has a panic alarm installed and keeps a fire extinguisher close to hand in the bare house in Bonnyrigg over fears of a fire-raising attack.

He also complained that he was not allowed to keep his two Staffordshire bull terrier dogs, which he has pictures of on his mobile phone, over fears that they may be poisoned. He said he did not like living in a house which was previously the home of a convicted paedophile.

He frequently visits the Capital. And he wants to meet the leader of the protests, which have taken place regularly outside the house.

His comments came in a five-and-a-half-hour, late-night conversation with a protester who turned up outside Greens’ cottage after a night out on Saturday. Despite police 
warning people not to be alone with Greens, the protester – who has asked to remain anonymous – decided to knock on the door. They were shocked when the sex offender appeared at the door and then invited them in.

The rapist then spent hours talking to the protester, who later met with the Evening News to reveal for the first time how Greens lives.

The protester said: “I had walked a friend home after the pub and decided to head out to the protest. There were no other people there, so I decided to try knocking on his door. I couldn’t believe it when he opened it.

“He invited me in and I said ‘yes’, as I thought that it would be good to hear his side of the story.”

Man is tormented by paedophile claims

"A SPALDING man claims he is being tormented by neighbours who accuse him of being a paedophile.

He said: “It’s totally unwarranted. I get called paedophile, bad man and pervert – and I’ve even heard it shouted ‘tell your daughter to stay away’ – but there’s no justification for it.

“When we split I moved to Spalding, but I can’t work because I’m on medication for mental health problems.

“All of this isn’t helping – I’ve been in touch with the police and South Holland District Council about it and now I just want it to stop.”

Lincolnshire Police commented on the accusations made to Mr Clarke.

A spokesman said: “We take complaints of anti-social behaviour very seriously and we encourage everyone in the community to report incidents when they occur.

“There are excellent systems in place to ensure that neighbourhood officers and PCSOs can share information with other agencies and registered social landlords to ensure that victims of ASB receive the most appropriate care and that those who cause misery to others are dealt with swiftly.”"

Lessons from the Sandusky Case: 4 Things Every Parent Should Know About Childhood Sexual Abuse

"The FBI report on the Sandusky sexual abuse case is very disturbing. My fellow parents have used words like horrible, shocking and disgusting. As parents, we read the headlines and feel powerless. But there are serious lessons we can learn from this case. What do we need to know to help break the cycle of shame, secrecy and ignorance that allows sexual abuse to continue? As a clinical psychologist, here are four things I think every parent should know about childhood sexual abuse:

1) Sexual abuse is rampant.

2) Sexual abuse is rarely about "stranger danger."

3) We need open, ongoing discussions with our children about sexuality, their bodies and trust.

4) Every child is everyone's business."

RI ACLU fights law on sex offenders near schools

"PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A state law that bars registered sex offenders from living within 300 feet of a school is unconstitutional because it is too vague and overly broad, the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union said Monday as it filed a lawsuit on behalf of three men who have been told by police they must move or face arrest.

The lawsuit was brought against the state on behalf of two developmentally disabled men and one veteran who their lawyer and supporters say would lose their housing and possibly become homeless if forced to move. They also said the law is counterproductive because it would have the effect of taking away the stability and support they need to keep them out of trouble."
