Description

In the 1970s and early '80s, missing children weren't considered a policing priority. You couldn't even enter missing child information into the FBI's national crime database. But that changed quickly. Support investigative journalism with a donation to In the Dark.

I feel like most people angry with this episode didn't listen to it carefully. Not everyone on the Sex offenders database are child molesters or real Sex offenders. No one is defending pedophiles. It just wants to show how the system fails to do anything effective against them. Before getting angry, listen carefully.

Really enjoying this Podcast until they seemed to be defending or feeling sorry for sex offenders. If you want to be able to live wherever you want, don't commit sex offences. And "forced homelessness" Marcos? No one FORCED you to commit a sec offense to get on the registry. YOU did that! Our children's rights are more important than those of someone who hurts or attempts to hurt or exploit them.

Editing stinks, parts are completely cut out in most of the episodes. Really compelling story so parts being cut out is really disappointing.

Are sex offenders against children nice sweet people whose rights are more important than the rights of those children they have ruined? can they EVER do enough time or be punished enough for what they've done? how about those children? do you think they will EVER be right again?

I was really enjoying this series until she started defending child molestors! typical of today's liberal minds.....defending the criminal above the rest of us! That Mario guy said the laws do not serve any purpose, is he fucking high? They serve a very important purpose! They are protecting our children from people like him! In my opinion, if you sexually abuse a child you deserve life in prison without parole, or better yet the death penalty! And no sitting on death row for 30 years.....if you are found guilty you go straight to the chair.

Rick Arden ok you can leave your fucking political agenda out of this. I'm as liberal as they come and I'm outraged that she's trying to make us feel sorry for sex offenders.

Sex offenders have less than 1 % of changing. No matter what their punishment or rehabiltation. Patty did not grow up with one so I understand her empathy. I suggest she look at the stats. Honestly, because of this, I believe they should get the death penalty. It would kill their disease and give them peace.

Jacqueline Anderson by endorsing murder you are just as bad as the sex offenders, worse actually. I hope you find peace before you find eternal hellfire

So, I enjoyed the podcast until the 6th episode. I do not feel sorry for anyone charged with a sexual crime. Marco was going to meet up with teenage girls to have sex with them and he feels he is being punished still? Absolutely! Look at the recidivism rate for sex offenders and ask yourself why these laws haven't been eased.

Paul Kennedy I agree - mostly. Once you do your time that should be it. However, in the case of pedophiles and other sexual predators (I'm not talking about some 19 yr old kid getting charged for sex with his 17 yr old gf) it's a different story. Especially pedophiles. There is no treating or "curing" what they have going on. They will remain a threat.

Paul Kennedy you must have been convicted of a sex crime, I still cant believe your comment. Here's how ir should be.....ALL CHILD MOLESTORS ARE OUT TO DEATH, no questions asked. That is the only way I would agree they fairly paid for their crimes.
