A discussion, hosted by Steve Paikin, with scientist Michael Seto, psychologists James Cantor and Robin Wilson and police officer Gordon Whealy.
They talk about the latest scientific insights that pedophilia is a mental illness caused by a variation in the brain, stressing the difference between the preference it causes and the behavioral choices that are made on that preference; not every pedophile is a child molester, not even every child molester is a pedophile.
From their professional experience they plead for systems of support and accountabiltiy, counseling and monitoring to prevent recidivism or the preference to turn into detrimental behavior.
Furthermore they correct public opinion about recidicivism rates (much lower than for other crimes) and fear projected on pedophiles living in the vicinity (85% of child sex offenses are perpetrated by friends and family).

"The mood and temper of the public in regard to the treatment of crime and criminals is one of the most unfailing tests of a civilization. We must have a desire to rehabilitate into the world of industry, all those who have paid their dues in the hard coinage of punishment." - Winston Churchill (United States Constitution)
