US government statistics indicate the most common age of sex offenders is 14, thought to be due chiefly to the vigorously pursued policy of arresting sexually active teenagers and labelling couples as “victim” and “perpetrator.”
The US government’s published report make no bones about the youthful nature of those being locked up for sex crimes, as evidenced below:
“In general, the detailed age profile of offenders in sexual assault crimes shows that the single age with the greatest number of offenders from the perspective of law enforcement was age 14.
The single age with the greatest proportion of sexual assault victims reported to law enforcement was age 14.”
Teenagers “raping” other teenagers apparently make up the most common sex crimes in the US.
What the report does not mention is the fact that these offences are said to be predominantly statutory ones, where both parties consented but one party happened to be older than the other, which inevitably results in a “victim” and a “perpetrator.”
Since these offences result in heinous sounding convictions for the rape and sodomy of minors, and the offenders are subsequently forced onto a public registry of criminals, effectively ruining their lives, some are calling into question the climate of hysteria regarding adolescent sexuality.
Indeed, there are cases where offenders forced onto such registers for having consensual sex as teenagers have been murdered by vigilantes, to say nothing of the brutal treatment inevitably received at the “correctional” facilities more often responsible for instilling deviancy and recidivism in their inmates.
It seems America’s prison industry, already the most extensive in history, will be well supplied with new inmates as the budding sexuality of the nation’s youth is criminalised and any suggestion of underage sexuality results in imprisonment and eternal sex offender status…
