Stricter laws against child molestors.

Messages Sent So Far
The mission is to create stricter laws against child predators whose only intention is to hurt children. This is for first time and repeat offenders. Every year children are victims of kidnappings, violent attacks, sexual abuse, or online predators. Predator statistics show that at least 200 million girls and 100 million boys will be sexually victimized before they reach adulthood. Only 1 in 3 people will report sexual crimes to a trusted adult. Research indicates that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before adulthood; sadly, 30-40% of these victims are abused by a family member and 50% are abused by someone outside the family whom they know and trust. Yes, there is a sex offender registry with over 747,408 registered sex offenders in the United States, but over 100,000 are lost in the system. These are just a few examples of predator statistics. The law is enacted and enforced on a state-by-state basis. In one year alone, approximately 4,300 child molesters in 15 states were released from confinement. Of the 4,300 child molesters released, approximately 3.3% were rearrested within three years for another sex offense against a child. Do you think it?s time for child molesters/predators/pedophiles to get more time for the crimes they impose on innocent children? More time in prison may save a child from falling victim to a horrific crime. Let?s make a difference! It only takes a few seconds to sign the petition in honor of our children.

I think we are to have the statue of limitations extended, for instance, murder is a lifetime. Why not do it for sexual predators. I am a victim and it has destroyed my life. I want to fight for tuffer laws so this doesn't happen to anyone else

I was sexually molested by a neighbor when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I just turned 55 and I am still affected mentally and emotionally from my ordeal. It does not go away. People who molest children should never be allowed out of prison. They will continue ruining people's lives with their sick, perverted behavior until they die. Please take these crimes as seriously as you would a convicted murderer. Make child molestation a life sentence without parole. Our children deserve it.

I am fed up with constantly writing to my local congress, state, and white house on the subject of releasing KNOWN & CONVICTED child predators in our communities and letting them live within blocks of schools where children walk to & from, play, and get dropped off. Every single month there is a new predator. A new sick POS! THERE IS SCIENTIFIC PROOF THAT THESE MONSTERS DON'T CHANGE!!! THEY WILL CONTINUE TO TRY TO RAPE AND VICTIMIZE CHILDREN TILL THE DAY THEY DIE I do not believe for one second that anyone truly read my email a couple months ago. This is absolutely serious! A country that does not protect it's own children have NO FUTURE!!! Our current AZ law regarding the proximity of residence to a school is: Sex offenders convicted of dangerous crimes against children are prohibited from living within 1,000 feet of a private or public school (kindergarten through 12th grade) or a child-care facility. Violators are guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. This does not apply to sex offenders on probation, minors or offenders living at an address before the school or child-care facility was established. | ARS 13-3727 THIS HAS TO CHANGE!!!! THIS SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED. READ MY FREAKING LETTER AND ADDRESS ME SERIOUSLY!!! No more child predators on our streets!!
