14-Year-Olds “Most Prolific Rapists”


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…

    Paranoia in the US has reached pure ridiculous levels.

    Under-aged kids who indulge in consensual sexual activity don't deserve to get branded with being a sex offender.

    Now real rapists, regardless of age need to be punished, however, minors being labeled as sex offenders is like a death sentence. "Potential" sex offender would be better a better label for minors. Give them counseling while their young. <.<

    America shouldn't be ruining the futures of youths.
    But for the most part the whole charging minors with sex crimes is getting a ridiculous because of the fact that a lot of the youths engage in consensual sexual activities. Politicians and everyone else is frankly messed up.

    Wanna hear an even bigger rumor. US politicians are trying to push a law into action redefining minors as anyone under the age of 26. Seriously, its all hypocrisy, spouting off that the people have the freedom yet restricting consenting couples on who they can love. A promise is made to protect the people yet the law enforcers are mixing those who don't act with evil intent with those who do in the same category and convicting them all the same.

    Damn it really disappoints me seeing this skewed statistic.

    My grandparents were either 14 and 15 or 13 and 17 when they married. This was depression/post depression era and in a rather remote place. Simply put, they weren't on any official "Registers" for a LONG time;-) It was America back then. They both passed away in the 90s. I'm not old myself, they had kids over a long period of time, so I'm a child of the 70s.

    But in AmeriKKKa some prosecutor would find out and go after them for "Justice by Points". They love 'technicality' crimes. When they are forced to prosecute mafia kingpins, corrupt businessmen, drug traffickers, child sellers...etc. Those guys not only can fight back, they have good lawyers. And too many lost cases lose a good job, sometimes even one big lost case. So they go after cheap "Points" with contempt for the damage they to to people.

    The "Molester" term has become the modern cry of "Witch!" the unforgivable crime that is so vile that if anyone even argues the accused's innocence they are considered guilty of it too.

    If they'd lived till today, some Prosecutor would look over records (yes, they were eventually on the system) and go after them. Two "Serial child molesters" plus lots of money and property to seize for the state. Easy points. This is AmeriKKKa.

    What a fucking stupid concept.
    So I'd be a rapist because I lost my virginity at 16.
    Which of course was under a lot of peer pressure because in where I come from 16 yr virgin meant you are gay.
    But you know what I don't regret it because I knew what a condom was then and I wasn't a basket case when I went to college.

    BTW there is nothing wrong with an 18 or 19 year old dating a 17 year old it's perfectly normal.
    But a 21 year old dating a 15 year old is kinda sick and a 13 year old is just wrong.

    Our justice system is made up of either judges that take under the tables from rich people/corporatiions to allow laws that would **** over ordinary people, or a political footrace to make our justice system as punitive and draconian as humanly possible.

    We believe that we can lock people up for minor offenses and they WILL be able to rehabilitate themselves...not just commit bigger crimes when they're released. We criminalize harmless thing and if a punishment seems too lenient, a number of victims rights groups get together to bitch at politicians to get people put away for longer and longer times.

    Throw in overloaded public defenders and you have a messed up judiciary.

    While I believe that teenagers getting involded in sex so early is not precisely desirable (they still don't have the criteria and maturity necessary to act with responsability, so they act mostly on animal instinc, hormones and mediatic pressure), this is absolutely ridiculous. The fact that age makes of the older partner (usually the boy) the rapist, is perhaps the most ridiculous part when everyone know that girls mature physically and mentally faster.

    Blame politics for this. I'm sure most of the lawmakers realize something is wrong with this, but one side is too afraid to be seen as encouraging immoral behavior, while the other WANTS it this way so they can bust out a new victim and sympathy ploy to stigmatize their "religious" opponents.

    This is just one of America's horrid laws. Kids are always charged worse than adults. Think about kids who commit or try to commit bank robberies. They can be sentenced to life in prison without parole, yet adults only come close to that if they kill someone.

    Well, it's the age you feel hornier than any other... Both boys and girls. Problem here is religious fundamentalism or fake moralism. The USA are champions in such things.

    Ppl should have sex when they felt like, if they were more honest there would be less frustrated ppl and probably less raping.

    The US government has become renowned at distorting the truth and often out right lying.

    98% of these cases are probably nothing more then two kids being curious about their bodies and exploring this new would of sexuality.

    I blame the evangelical conservative movement they have been dragging the country down every since they gained power.
    These people are hypocrites who have an inferiority complex and can only feel good about themselves if they are hunting a witch and this includes trying their own children as witches.

    welcome home, captain obvious. ;)

    any kind of faith, be it christianity or islam or buddism or whatnot is essentially a life philosophy, and it usually includes some very righteous elements that are crucial for a functioning society. unfortunately, since a philosophy is human-made, it can easily be warped into an oppressive one, if the wrong people may control it. that's why it's so important laws need to made from a consent of everyone - as soon as an "elite" can pass them unconstrained, they will become bad sooner or later.

    in this respect, the so-called western world is no better than, for example, an underdeveloped islamic country. we may not force our women to wear a burka, but denying our children to find their sexual identity is just as bad.
    mind you, many countries that are governed by the sharia are more modern than the us and a in some respects.

    I must say that if two people are under age and close in age (0-3 years apart) they shouldn't be arrested and branded for life it's simply stupid. That said 18+ year olds are adults and mustn't be allowed to get off with sex with an under age child. Although I believe proper sex education is vital (not abstinence only actual sex education) and children shouldn't be tried as adults, I also believe children aren't ready for the consequences sex can have. Now that presents a conflict in my beliefs but i'm fully aware that children will always have sex, so the point i'm trying to make is we shouldn't say it's ok to go out and have sex whenever they want, but we shouldn't condemn sex either or punish them for it. We need to make sex less taboo but on America's puritan foundation it's difficult. Basically, we should simply educate the children not inject our personal beliefs about sex. Then they decide what they want to do with a pure set of facts not scare tactics, propaganda, or a sex is consequence free mind set

    Lets round them up and put them on an island, or in the middle of the jungle somewhere or better yet dump them in the middle east but not kill them.
    Lets see if they can even survive without parasitically living off the intelligent people.

    Surprisingly it would not be as big a group as you'd think it's mostly a small but very vocal group of old bitties who can't handle modern times and closest homos and pedos in denial who feel that going on a jihad on the subject they have impure thoughts about would clear them in the eyes of their god.
    The last group are SOBs who never had success socially but joined the church and are now hell bent to make everyone as miserable as they are.

    Nah, the logistics of rounding them up in one place would be a nightmare--It's best to just wipe them from the fucking planet. Besides, if we let them live otherwise who knows what kind of things they can pull off in order to survive?

    I would recommend that the president should use our military's entire nuclear arsenal against all the counties/towns/communities whose populations are mostly comprised of right-wingers, both real and in-name-only. He can then order each and every military base in the country to go on full alert and wipe out any remaining refugees that exist near by. If there are any high-value conservatives living within liberal communities/cities, he can then send in the special forces to assassinate them, their families, and anyone that may benefit from their deaths. Why drag the neocons out of their houses when you can vaporize them in their sleep?

    He can cover it up as an attack from an unknown country, too.

    Comment by Anonymous

    There is no consent because it is rape. Sex with a child is a crime. Consent or not, it is a crime. It's a crime if a 25 yr old doing a 15 yr old even with her consent, so should anyone of any age.
    Don't give me he knows more and all. Not with what goes on tv and stuff. Even so, what if the girl knows a ton more than the 25 yr old because he is a virgin? Then what?

    So two kids of roughly the same age who are experimenting in sex are raping each other? Why is it so bad for children to try out sex (and with that, I refer to all kinds of sex, not just penetration)? They have to learn it someday, so why not start early?

    Maybe you should tell Mother Nature that people shouldn't be physically prepared for sex at age 12 and wait till they're 16 or older (depending on where you live) before giving them sexual desires and everything that comes with it.

    Anonymous, you're an idiot.

    There is a difference between rape and sex. I would agree that a 35, much less a 25 year old having sex with a 15yr old girl is wrong.

    But you're an idiot, with the law and your rules - two 14 year olds having consensual sex *IS NOT RAPE*. Most people become sexually active around 11~12, and being sexually active at 14 is not rare. Just because you never got laid, doesn't mean you have to have a stick up your butt about it.

    Also, with the laws being stupid, ie: there ARE stupid laws out there that should be fixed, yes we need laws, etc.

    When a 14year old girl takes nude photos of her self with her camera phone and sends it to a few friends. What happens?

    Yes, she is charged as a pedophile in the USA for distributing child porn. And the other kids who received those photos, just by looking at them, not knowing what was sent - are registered sex offenders too.

    Lets see, yes she shouldn't have done it - but THEY ARE KIDS! They do stupid kid crap and only should be warned not to do that as it could embarrass themselves and attract predators. But to go through trial, jail time and a sex-offender for the rest of their lives? That hurts kids, doesn't help.

    That is fucked.

    Being a "rapist" (or was that my friend who was a year older than me?) at the age of 7 myself, I find this moral panic shit so incredibly fucking annoying. Stop telling me that I can't think or that I don't know what I want!

    I knew perfectly well what I wanted back then, and I still feel the same about sex today (fun, feels awesome, use protection), so what the fuck are you (as in the "general morons on a moral panic rampage"-you) trying to tell me I'm wrong?

    Even if a part of it is made-up (which I doubt), you don't have to be a genius to know that it doesn't take much to be listed as sex offender.

    And like it or not, countries such as America (though they're not the only ones - the UK's laws are not much better) DO have problems with two kids fucking each other with both giving their consent, especially if he is 18 or older and she younger than that.

    Also, given how extremely prudish some parents can be, I could easily see them punish them like this as well. Plus, some schools are VERY good at snitching. If you tell them your kid had sex with another one, they'd be quick to call the authorities. In the worst case, the parents will have their custody taken away from them, because they obviously failed as parents to keep their children in line.
