NCMEC - Hope Is Why We're Here (Misleading Video)

This video is misleading. This organization DOES NOT make children any safer from criminals, they only come in after the fact to help find the person dead or alive. That is a big difference!

They say they help prevent and solve crimes. How is that exactly?

If someone is intent on sexually abusing, kidnapping or even murdering someone, nothing they do will prevent that.

They say the FBI reports that 500,000 reports are made of missing children each year. Sounds like one of those magical Goldilock numbers to us, but we could be wrong.

Then they show the case of Jacon Wetterling, who was kidnapped, but a crime they did not solve.

Also they show the Adam Walsh act, which is another crime they did not prevent, and it was never proven Adam was sexually abused or who murdered him, but that didn't stop John Walsh from pushing the Adam Walsh act to put ex-sex offenders on a public list, which also doesn't prevent crime. And what about the fact that he dated Reve when she was underage? If they had sex then, then John Walsh committed a sexual crime.

They should be putting out educational material, online and in schools, that is what may prevent a crime, but hey, who are we?

MO - Sex offenders have to make a living, too

Newspaper jobs sectionOriginal Article


As president of a national organization that advocates for the families of sex offender registrants, I take exception to the following insensitive statement made by Rep. Genise Montecillo in the article: "Most people view this building as a safe building, and sometimes folks let their guard down," Montecillo said during the hearing. "I think people should at least be aware that there is one in the building."

Rep. Montecillo implied that the Capitol was not "safe" because "there is one in the building." How absurd. Montecillo owes every family member of a registrant in Missouri an apology. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, as of December 2013 there were 13,587 registrants in Missouri, which equates to approximately 30,000 family members who are made to feel like a subclass of citizens because they believe that, once adjudicated and debt paid, they should be allowed a life. Our families are doing one of the three things researchers and therapists say are essential for successful reintegration: a job, housing and a positive support system. Maybe the House members would rather Bena and the other 13,586 registrants be homeless and jobless?
