The clearinghouse on child abuse and neglect information reports that “One in four girls will be sexually abused before they turn 14 and one in three will be sexually abused before they turn 18.” Boys aren’t in the clear either. They also reported that “One in seven boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18.” You ask “How could this be happening?” This is happening because child molesters are being let off too easy! In this speech I am going to convince you that we need tougher penalties on child molesters!
The purpose of this speech is to inform you that sex offenders are getting away too easy.
Sexual abuse has horrible effects on children. Children who have been sexually abused suffer from devastating psychological breakdown and sometimes death. The children develop mistrust and will have problems in their future relationships. Also sexual abuse makes sexual abusers. The Child Abuse Help Book says “82% of child molesters were molested when they were children.”
If you think it isn’t a big problem and it won’t affect you or someone you love then you’re wrong. There are 300,000 to 500,000 reported every year in the united states and experts say “for each case that is reported there are two more that aren’t.” Why in Virginia Beach alone in 1993 the social services office counted 6,613 sexual abuse cases reported.
The reason only a third of the cases are reported because most of the time the abuser is a friend or family member. In fact the book Child Abuse: an american epidemic says “only 28% of child molestors are strangers.” Most of the time the abuser is the money maker in the family and the child fears that if the molestor gets taken away that they will have nothing. If it is a friend or another family member they don’t tell because they don’t want to ruin the friendship or break up the family.
Sexual abuse has several categories and although illegal throughout the united states penalties vary in different states. Social services says”Right now in Virginia for “touching” sexual abuse the offender can get 3-7 years with chance of parole and child molestors are on the top of the list to receive parole which can reduce that sentence to 2 years.They can even get as little as a year if they agree the go to rehabilitation for 3 years. Another form of Sexual Abuse is incest and in Virginia you can get as little as a $50 fine and/or 1 year in jail for it.
Rehabilitation centers don’t seem to have worked over all either.The Child Abuse Help Book says 56% of offenders who are caught for their first time will sexually abuse after being let out.
A well respected official of the Oregon State Hospital, a primary treatment center for sex offenders, stated “There are no cures in this business. The only thing we haven’t tried is magnum-therapy......blowing there brains out with a bullet.” he also said “most child molesters.... don’t want to stop, since it is their only way to be sexually gratified.”
A 1992 study of 767 rapist and child molesters in Minnesota found those who completed psychiatric treatment were arrested more often for new crimes than those who didn’t go through the program.
I hope with these astounding facts I’ve given you it has convinced you to write your local congress man and demand tougher penalties on molesters and to propose a bill which notifies a neighborhood when a convicted child molestor moves into their community. This will prevent many molestations because if you knew a molestor was living next door you wouldn’t let your children play in front of the molestor’s house. Also if you suspect any child abuse going on anywhere call 1-800-552-7096. Thank for your time.

A Rite of Passage A Rite of Passage An Evaluation If you read the paper, peruse People magazine, or spend any time watching the tabloid TV shows, you would have the strong impression that what Lorena Bobbitt did to her husband, John Wayne Bobbitt, in the wee hours of June 23 in Manassas, Virginia, was the equivalent of the shot heard ‘round the world. You might think that Lorena Bobbitt single-handedly avenged the sexual crimes that have been perpetrated against all women from the beginning of time. There is no

It is suggested that in modern literature the true element of tragedy It is suggested that in modern literature, the true element of tragedy is not captured because the protagonist is often of the same social status as the audience, and therefor, his downfall is not tragic. This opinion, I find, takes little consideration of the times in which we live. Indeed, most modern plays and literature are not about monarchs and the main character is often equal to the common person; this, however, does not mean the plot is any less miserable nor the outcome any less wretc

Serial killers 2Serial killers 2 Prior to discussing what serial killers do, we must identify and pinpoint what a serial killer is. We generally tend to attribute the same name for serial killers and mass murderers. This is incorrect because they are two independent and different types of killers. While both of these individuals may kill many people, the difference lies in the reason they kill and the period over which they kill their victims. An event or a build up of circumstance triggers mass murderers and c

Adultery in the Seventeenth CenturyAdultery in the Seventeenth Century Throughout the history of civilization, most adult humans have found that pairing off is the best way to start and raise a family. Every culture has its own way of treating these pairings – from lifelong partnerships to a promise of just a few years. Some have been made for love and some for money. In some relationships, both partners are expected to remain faithful, in others only one is allowed to stray, and sometimes both members are given a free rein. A lo

Anti-censorship SpeechAnti-censorship Speech Let's deal with language first. Personally I despise the term bad language . Language is the protocol we use to communicate. Possibly language could be called bad if it was used in the wrong context or was ineffectual in communicating an idea to another person or persons, but this is not what people mean when they say bad language. They mean swearing. But why is swearing bad? Maybe it's blasphemous, but surely people have freedom of speech, or maybe it's sexually explicit,
Measure for Measure and HamletMeasure for Measure and Hamlet Although corruption in the world and characters are a theme around which both Measure for Measure and Hamlet are constructed, it seems erroneous to encapsulate these Shakespearean plays solely in such a realm. The villains in both plays are not as deeply rooted in corruption as it would originally appear. Claudius and Angelo are both complex characters who never fully give themselves to sin and villainy. Their indiscretions seem to stem from, at least, a fundamenta

Solving the Gay Problem Solving the “Gay” Problem There is only one way for our society to fix the so-called “gay problem” that exists today, and that is to realize that there is no gay problem. By this I mean that being a homosexual should not subject that person to persecution and discrimination. Instead, that person should be looked at as just other human being, because that is what they are. Homosexuals do not choose to be gay so it is just the way they are. We do not discriminate and make fun of children that are
Characteristics of Modern ConditionCharacteristics of Modern Condition What can I say about the modern society? It reminds me of iron – it is very hard to mould and the process is very slow. Our society is very conservative. It resists any change, any innovation. And one is considered criminal if one tries to go against tradition, against customs, against morality. As Nietzsche said: “To be evil is “not to act in accordance with custom”, to practice things not sanctioned by custom, to resist tradition, however rational or stupid

The media may portray the psychopath as a crazed serial killer - the stuff of nightmares and horror films - but the reality is chillingly different. Not all psychopaths are violent criminals and fewer still have a desire to eat you for dinner. Many are highly successful businessmen and women, lawyers, academics, politicians, doctors and teachers.

FreudFreud He is peeping through a small hole, from which a light comes out and shows his expression. Is it an expression of pleasure? No, it looks like pain he feels. But his eyes are looking so lusty in desire, he is masturbating. I have never seen an expression like this, he is both taking sexual pleasure and feeling a deep pain, plus he seems to be afraid of a mother who might catch him masturbating; he is in such a hurry. But that’s ridiculous, he is a grown up, why would a man be afraid of his
