Love the First Amendment. It helps us spot the assholes from a safe distance.

Is it just me or has there been a dramatic increase in sex crimes against kids lately?

Just asking...

It's not just me, kiddies. My little corner of Flyover America is indeed infested with pedophiles...

Lancaster County ranks 3rd in sex-abuse prosecutions in Pennsylvania over past 3 years

New data show Lancaster County has the third-most sex-abuse prosecutions in the state over the past three years.
 
Between 2013 and 2015, the county had 257 convictions of cases involving sex offenders. This number represents about 5.4 percent of convictions statewide, according to data compiled by the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts, a state record-keeping database.
 
Philadelphia County had the most prosecutions (707 total, 14.9 percent), and Allegheny County, which includes Pittsburgh, had the second-most (447 total, 9.4 percent).
Lancaster officials said the high ranking is because of law enforcement's proactive approach, not because there are more sex offenders living here than in counties of similar size.
Lancaster County is the sixth-largest county in the state.

"More cases are reported and pursued because our multi-disciplinary team, and prosecutors are able to achieve results," Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman said Thursday.
"One of my top priorities has been to make sure that we have an elite child abuse unit, and I have given them more resources than ever before."
Stedman and Assistant District Attorney Karen Mansfield, who heads the DA's sex-abuse unit, pointed to the collaboration of police, prosecutors, victim/witness advocates and social services, including Children and Youth and the Lancaster County Children's Alliance.
 
"We have more cases because we are fortunate enough to have a well-trained and high-functioning multi-disciplinary team that follows a protocol that has been recognized as a model for the state," Mansfield said.
 
In recent years the DA's office has implemented a specialized unit of prosecutors, a county detective, regular training and a computer forensic unit to investigate sex-abuse crimes.

About Me

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
