Child Predation Statistics"The serial killer has the same personalitycharacteristics as the sex offender against children“ -Dr.Mace Knapp, Nevada State Prison Psychologist.There are 400,000 registered sex offenders in the UnitedStates, and an estimated 80 to 100,000 of them aremissing. Theyre supposed to be registered, but wedont know where they are and we dont know wheretheyre living.The most serious and chronic offenders often showsigns of antisocial behavior as early as the preschoolyears.It is estimated that between 1% and 5% of ourpopulation molest children .Nearly all the offenders in sexual assaults reported to lawenforcement were male (96%).
Overall, 23% of sexual assault offenders were under the 18and 77% were adults.40% of the offenders of victims under age 6 werethemselves juveniles. A similar proportion (39%) of offendersof victims ages 6 through 11 were also juveniles. For olderjuvenile victims, the proportion of juvenile offenders droppedto 27%.Adults were the offender in 60% of the sexual assaults ofyouth under age 12. Rarely were the offenders of youngvictims strangers. Strangers were the offender in just 3% ofsexual assaults against victims under age 6 and 5% of thesexual assault of victimizations of youth ages 6 through 11.1 in 5 violent offenders serving time in a state prisonreported having victimized a child.2/3 of all prisoners convicted of rape or sexual assault hadcommitted their crime against a child.
Acquaintance perpetrators are the most common abusers,constituting approximately 70-90% of all reported perpetrators.89% of child sexual assault cases involve persons known to thechild, such as a caretaker or family acquaintance.29% of child sexual abuse offenders are relatives, 60% areacquaintances, and only 11% are strangers.For the vast majority of child victimizers in State prison, the victimwas someone they knew before the crime. 1/3 had committed theircrime against their own child, about 1/2 had a relationship with thevictim as a friend, acquaintance, or relative other than offspring,about 1 in 7 reported the victim to have been a stranger to them.3/4 of the violent victimizations of children took place in either thevictims home or the offenders home.About 60% of the male survivors sampled report at least one oftheir perpetrators to be female.
Many clinical settings currently are witnessing a dramaticincrease in the number of adolescent offenders who havecommitted sexually aggressive acts against other children.While nearly 70% of those serving time for violent crimesagainst children were white, whites accounted for 40% of thoseimprisoned for violent crimes against adults.Inmates who victimized children were less likely than otherinmates to have a prior criminal record-nearly 1/3 of childvictimizers had never been arrested prior to the current offense,compared to less than 20% of those who victimized adults.50% of reported child molestations involve the use of physicalforce and child molesters produce as much visible physicalinjury as rapists-39% of victims.More than 1/2 of all convicted sex offenders are sent back toprison within a year. Within 2 years, 77.9% are back.
Recidivism rates range from 18-45%. Themore violent the crime the more likelihood ofrepeating.Like rape, child molestation is one of the mostunderreported crimes: only 1-10% are everdisclosed.The behavior is highly repetitive, to the point ofcompulsion, rather than resulting from a lack ofjudgment.Bottom Line – WATCH YOUR CHILDREN.LOOK FOR SIGNS OF WITHDRAWAL ANDCAREFULLY DO A PERSONAL INVENTORYOF WHO THEY COME IN CONTACT WITHON A DAILY BASIS.

Effects of Cyber-BullyingWhile bullying through physical intimidation has long been a problem amongteenagers, cyberbullying by using computers and smart phones to send rumorsor post cruel messages has become more prevalent in recent years.Even though there might not be physical injuries, cyberbullying leaves deepemotional scars on the victim.Warning signs of being cyberbullied can include:•appearing sad, moody, or anxious•avoiding school•withdrawing from social activities•experiencing a drop in grades•appearing upset after using the computer•appearing upset after viewing a text message
In extreme cases, physical bullying and online bullying candrive a child or teen to deep depression and even suicide(sometimes called ―bullycide‖). Since 1983, over 150 childrenhave taken their own lives due, in part, to the extremepressure of being bullied.When it comes to suicides related to cyberbullying, somenames have made national headlines in recent years.Ryan Halligan (2003) may be the earliest known case ofsuicide provoked by Internet taunts, but unfortunately manyothers have followed:Jeffrey Johnston (2005), Kristina Calco (2006), RachaelNeblett (2006), Megan Meier (2006), Jesse Logan (2008),Alexa Berman (2008), Michael Joseph Berry (2008), IainSteele (2009), Hope Wittsell (2009), Tyler Clementi (2010),Ashley Rogers (2010), Alexis Skye Pilkington (2010), PhoebePrince (2010), and Amanda Cummings (2011).

Child AbductionChild abduction or Child theft is the unauthorized removal of a minor (a childunder the age of legal adulthood) from the custody of the childs natural parentsor legally appointed guardians.The term child abduction confounds two legal and social categories which differby their perpetrating contexts: abduction by members of the childs family orabduction by strangers:Parental child abduction: a family relatives (usually parents) unauthorizedcustody of a child without parental agreement and contrary to family law ruling,which largely removes the child from care, access and contact of the other parentand family side. Occurring around parental separation or divorce, such parental orfamilial child abduction may include parental alienation, a form of child abuseseeking to disconnect a child from targeted parent and denigrated side of family.
Abduction or kidnapping by strangers (from outside the family, natural orlegal guardians) who steal a child for criminal purposes which may include: •Extortion, to elicit a ransom from the guardians for the childs return •illegal adoption, a stranger steals a child with the intent to rear the child as their own •Human trafficking, a stranger steals a child with the intent to exploit the child themselves or by trade in a list of possible abuses including slavery, forced labor, sexual abuse, or even illegal organ trading and murderAbductions by strangersThe stereotypical version of child abduction by a stranger is the classic form of"kidnapping," exemplified by the Lindbergh kidnapping, in which the child isdetained, transported some distance, held for ransom or with intent to keep thechild permanently. These instances are, however, rare.
