    Looking like a Sex Offender?

    Advertisements
    On another board someone was discussing a sex offender and recently coming across one... and being surprised that this person was actually, a sex offender.

    Here's the quote....

    I guess in my mind sex offenders have a certain look, and he doesn't fit the picture in my head.
    Do you think, honestly, that sex offenders LOOK like sex offenders? And if that's the case, what does one LOOK LIKE?
    *** Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes. ***
    *** Women's Rule of Thumb: If it has tires or testicles, you're going to have trouble with it! ***
    *** My husband bought me a mood ring the other day. When I'm in a good mood
    it turns green. When I'm in a bad mood, it leaves a red mark on his forehead. ***


    Never go to bed mad, stay up and fight it out.

    "Sex offenders" is such a broad category...and I don't think they have a certain "look" that is easily recognizable. I guess sometimes you run across people that just rub you the wrong way or set off warning alarms, but for me that usually has nothing to do with their appearance and everything to do with the way they talk and act.

    No not all sex offenders have a "look" that is one reason so many of them are able to abuse so many people before being caught they look like the guy/girl next door

    If people could be that easily identified as belonging into any category be is sex offender, murderer, illegal immigrant, or whatever else it would make life so much easier for the police. lol But there is not one 'look' that will classify anyone as belonging into any category.
    An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment.

    They look like family
    They look like friends
    They look like our neighbors
    They look like us
    That's part of of the reason it makes them so scary and THEM so good at getting away with it.

    no i don't believe that "sex offenders" have a specific look. however, T.V. so many times portrays sex offenders to fit a certain "look" and i believe that society sometimes takes that and transfers it too often into real life.

    Everyday you spend worrying about tomorrow...you miss living for today...

    this is exactly what I was thinking...
    ...it's probably a different thing for different people. Had I never been sexually assaulted, I'm sure I would have a much different POV. My mother has the 'he/she just doesn't LOOK like the type to do such a thing, but apparently he/she DID, so I'm wrong once again!'...I know that the friendliest looking people are sometimes the deadliest.
    It's really sad. I WISH that people who did such things walked around with blinking signs----with me, you don't get what you see!
