A Profile of the Child Molester

This Article is written by Rosemary Webb and Jennifer Mitchell, National Child Safety Experts and Co-Presidents of Child Lures Prevention/Teen Lures Prevention. https://childluresprevention.com/resources/molester-profile/

For over three decades, Child Lures Prevention has analyzed data on the methods child molesters use for luring children and teens into abuse and worse. Our original research, based on hundreds of interviews with convicted sex offenders and in-depth case studies, reveals 16 specific “Child Lures” — including Affection, Authority, Bribery and Games — which constitute the foundation of the Think First & Stay Safe and Teen Lures TV Newscast school curricula.

Child molesters come from all economic backgrounds, geographic areas and include every ethnicity, race and creed. The sole characteristic all child molesters share is having thoughts about being sexual with children, and acting on those thoughts. These individuals actively seek access to children and the opportunity to be alone with them. Also, contrary to common “Stranger Danger” warnings, child molesters are rarely strangers; at least 90% of sexually abused children are exploited by someone in the child’s immediate or extended family, or by someone close to the family.

Who can be a child molester?

  • All genders (88% are male; 9% are female; 3% are unknown)*
  • All ages (including kids, teens and seniors)
  • All socioeconomic groups (wealthy, middle class & disadvantaged)
  • All races & ethnicity
  • Diverse occupations

What percentage of child sexual abuse is committed by family members?

Family members abuse:

  • 49% of victims under age 6.
  • 42% of victims ages 7-11.
  • 24% of victims ages 12 – 17.

The younger the child, the more likely their abuser is a family member. Keep in mind that family members include parents, guardians, step-parents, siblings, step-siblings, cousins, uncles, aunts and grandparents.

Do kids and teens ever sexually abuse other children?

Yes. Based on substantiated state-by-state reports, at least 1/3rd of all childhood sexual abuse is peer-to-peer. Juveniles who commit sexual offenses are usually an older, stronger youngster. The average onset of child sexual assault behavior is 12-14 years old.

A U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics report* found that 23% of all sex offenders were under the age of 18.  There are two very important distinctions to make about juveniles with sexual offending behaviors:

  • Of children who are sexually abused, the majority DO NOT go on to become sexual offenders.
  • The subset of juveniles who do sexually offend other children often have histories of being victimized themselves.

Do females ever molest children?

Yes. Female offenders make up approximately 9% of all reported child sexual abuse. The most recent statistical report by the US Department of Justice found that female offenders victimized:

  • 12% of victims under the age of 6
  • 6% of victims ages 6 – 12
  • 3% of victims ages 12 – 17

What is the most common lure used by child molesters?

The Affection Lure is used both offline and online to exploit unsuspecting youngsters in need of love and attention. (See Think First & Stay Safe™ Parent Guide.) Most victims of abuse are befriended and “groomed” over a period of hours, days, weeks, months, or years. Child molesters have repeatedly admitted: When there’s a physically or emotionally absent parent in the picture, it makes the child more vulnerable to grooming and abuse.

How many sex offenders, including child molesters, live in the U.S.?

Currently, there are 904,011 registered sex offenders living in the United States, according to registry data from 50 states and 6 U.S. territories (May, 2018), which has increased from 847,725 in Nov, 2017*. These are offenders who have been caught, convicted, served their time and are now living among us. This number does not include child molesters who are currently serving time in prison. Also, the FBI estimates that only 10-40% of sex crimes are ever reported, which means there are millions of sex offenders living in the United States, many of whom have never been reported – or caught, or convicted.

How do child molesters gain access to their victims?

While some sexual abuse is purely opportunistic, most children are groomed and lured into situations where they are vulnerable to abuse. Common grooming strategies include:

  • Befriending parents, particularly single parents, to gain access to their children.
  • Offering babysitting services to busy parents or guardians.
  • Taking jobs and participating in community events that involve children.
  • Becoming a guardian or foster parent.
  • Attending sporting events for children.
  • Offering to coach children’s sports.
  • Volunteering in youth organizations.
  • Offering to chaperone overnight trips.
  • Loitering in places children frequent – playgrounds, parks, malls, game arcades, sports fields, etc.
  • Befriending youngsters on social media (Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, etc.) and online gaming platforms.

How do sex offenders lure kids online?

Internet predators use the same Lures online that are used offline. They typically target uninformed and unsuspecting youngsters to engage in virtual relationships by luring them with flattery, attention and feelings of being close to an online friend. In essence, the Affection Lure, Friendship Lure and Ego Lure are being used online. Lonely, neglected, confused and risk-taking adolescents are most vulnerable. The risk increases if they share intimate images of themselves or have inappropriate conversations.

The internet predator becomes a more serious threat when they obtain a youngster’s personal information (i.e. full name, phone number, address, school, sports team), convinces them to send inappropriate images, or manages to arrange a private, in-person meeting. Youth who have shared too much personal information or agreed to in-person meetings without adult supervision have been robbed, assaulted and sexually abused. Cyber predators who convince youngsters to share intimate pictures or video often use blackmail to get more images. This is known as sextortion, which is increasingly being uncovered by law enforcement.

Children and teens are still more likely to be sexually exploited (in person or virtually) by someone they know, including a peer, than by an Internet Predator. This is why it’s important to remind kids to limit how much personal information they share with everyone, to keep passwords PRIVATE (even from friends) and to never send inappropriate images to anyone.

How else do child molesters use the Internet?

Since the dawn of the Internet, child molesters around the globe have used it to share beliefs and experiences, even descriptions, names and images of children they have abused. Now, the Dark Web is where they “socialize,” as well as share and sell child pornography, easily produced with cell phone cameras and sometimes even shown in real time.

It is essential for parents to teach children and teens that they must not ask for, nor provide, nude or semi-nude photos. Ever. Many sexted images children and teens have been pressured into sending (or send “to be funny”) end up in the child porn collections of American and International sexual predators. Despite law enforcement’s best efforts, it is next to impossible to get child pornography images out of circulation on the web.

How do child molesters target their victims?

Early grooming efforts by sexual predators seek to determine if the child has a stable home life, or if the family is facing challenges like poverty, divorce, illness, drugs, homelessness, etc.  Children lacking stability at home are at higher risk for sexual abuse, as there is usually more access to the child and opportunities to abuse the child.

Child molesters will also target kids who are loners, or who look troubled or neglected. Youngsters who smoke, vape or use drugs and alcohol are seen as risk-seekers lacking adequate supervision, and therefore easy targets.  Single moms are often targeted, as they are more likely to be overwhelmed by parenting duties and vulnerable to offers to babysit and/or drive kids to school, practices, lessons and other activities.

Which age group is most often targeted by child molesters?

While all children are vulnerable, approximately 20% of child sexual abuse occurs with children under 5 years of age; 50% with kids between 5-12 years old; and 30% occurs with teens between 13-17 years of age. Parents and guardians can help keep their children safe by talking frankly and often to their children about “the birds and the bees.” At the very least, teach your child, preferably beginning at birth, anatomically-correct names for their private body parts (buttocks, anus, chest, breasts, vulva, vagina, penis and scrotum). Child molesters have admitted they are less likely to abuse children who have a basic understanding of sex education, including knowledge of the proper names for private body parts.

Some child molesters cite a preference for children on the brink of puberty. This is the age of sexual awakening, making it easy for molesters to prey on the sexual ignorance and curiosity of youngsters. To quote one sex offender, “Give me a kid who knows nothing about sex, and you’ve given me my next victim.”

When and where do most sexual assaults usually happen?

With incidents involving juvenile offenders, 1 in 7 sexual assaults occurs on schooldays between 3pm-7pm, with a peak from 3-4pm, right after school. This speaks to the importance of safe after-school care and close supervision of multi-age groups of youngsters.

Most child sexual abuse occurs in the home of the victim, the home of the offender, or another residence.** 81% of all child sexual abuse occurs in one-on-one situations: one-offender/one-child. Wherever youth are physically or virtually alone with someone is a potential place where they can be subjected to sexual misconduct or abuse.

Wouldn’t a vigilant parent be able to detect a child molester, just by their actions?

Not necessarily. Most child molesters are expert at getting children and families to trust them. Many target their victims and attempt to involve themselves in the child’s life, including their family, school, house of worship, sports, and hobbies. They are often the first to offer to babysit or drive your child to activities. Child molesters will smile at you, look you right in the eye and make you believe they are trustworthy.

Why is it that most victims do NOT tell someone about their abuse, or attempted abuse?

There are many reasons why 9 in 10 children do not tell about being sexually abused. Because the abuser is often a family member, the child may be dependent on their abuser for basics like food and shelter. They may still love the abuser and not want to get them in trouble, or they may fear breaking up the family. They may have been threatened not to tell, so they are afraid.

Many survivors of sexual abuse feel embarrassment, shame and a sense of guilt over what happened. They may mistakenly believe they are somehow responsible, that they did something to make the abuse happen. Other kids, especially boys, are afraid parents will over-react or restrict their freedom, so they keep quiet. However, child sexual abuse is NEVER a child’s fault. Think First & Stay Safe and Teen Lures TV Newscast curricula teach children and teens that All Secrets Can Be Told. Program evaluations document that children are more willing to tell about grooming behaviors, attempted abuse and sexual abuse after learning either or both curricula in school.

How then, do we protect our children?

Starting at birth, teach children the medical terms for private body parts. (Chest, breasts, buttocks or butt, vulva, vagina, penis and testicles.) Teach children that private parts are just that – private. Assure children of their own rights, that they are the boss of their own body, and they get to choose whether or not anyone can hug, kiss or touch them. Respect children’s privacy and personal space, and teach them to respect the privacy and personal space of others.

Children need to learn that no one has the right to touch, look at or photograph the private parts of their body, nor ask them to look at or touch the private parts of another. Anyone who tries is breaking the law. Tell your children that all secrets can be told, especially secrets they have been told to keep or have been keeping for a long time. Help your child choose two trusted adults, one at home and one at school, to whom they can tell anything.

If a person or situation gives you or your child a funny feeling in the belly, act upon those feelings. Don’t allow your child to be alone with such persons or go alone into such situations. Gut feelings are rarely wrong.

The VIP (Very Important Person) Factor

While there are many reasons victims don’t tell, the “VIP Factor”  is a significant reason why sexual crimes against children have continued for generations. These “Very Important Persons” (VIPs) are well-known local leaders in our schools, athletic and civic organizations, houses of worship, healthcare and business communities. Some are VIPs on the state or national level, in the educational, legal, military, corporate, media, higher education and political worlds. They have power and money, and they have imposed a culture of silence that few dare attempt to confront.

For example, at Penn State University, Assistant Coach Jerry Sandusky (who ran a non-profit organization for disadvantaged youth) used nine of the 16 Child Lures to entrap and sexually exploit his many young victims: 1. Affection, 2. Assistance, 3. Authority, 4. Bribery, 5. Games, 6. Hero, 7. Job, 8. Threats & Weapons and 9. Drugs.

Four of the victims were assaulted during sleepovers with Sandusky, a common tactic of sex offenders. As in many cases of child sexual abuse, the children were threatened not to disclose and were told, “No one will believe you.” As is usually the case, the child victims believed their offender.

Other VIPs within Penn State University were aware of inappropriate behaviors by Sandusky, but did nothing to stop, report or prevent his crimes against vulnerable children.

And now, 8 years later, gleaned from the complaint: Jane Doe v. Darren K. Indyke and Richard D. Kahn, in their capacities as the executors of the estate of Jeffrey E. Epstein, Jane Doe specifically outlines how Jeffrey Epstein and his recruiters/handlers allegedly used the identical Child/Teen Lures of 1. Affection, 2. Assistance, 3. Authority, 4. Bribery, 5. Games, 6. Hero, 7. Job and 8. Threats/Fear to carry out years of child sexual exploitation. And like Sandusky/Penn State University, why did no one in Jeffrey Epstein’s orbit speak up or step up to stop, report or prevent these crimes against children?

May all victims and survivors of sexual abuse/assault find the safety and justice they need so healing can begin.

Final Thoughts:

Child molesters are family members, relatives, neighbors, coaches, teachers, preachers, friends and our children’s peers. Knowing this – and knowing that adults cannot be with children every moment of every day – it is essential to talk openly with children about personal boundaries and personal safety. Teach children, age-appropriately, how to recognize and evade the lures used for generations by sexual predators of every kind.

Thankfully, both children and adults are beginning to more readily report sexual abuse and harassment, saying boldly and loudly that these crimes are no longer acceptable. This long-overdue cultural shift to intolerance of sexual assault and harassment will hopefully shift attention to the dire need to prevent child sexual abuse through awareness and education.

By teaching positive health-promoting norms, attitudes, values, beliefs and behaviors, beginning in Pre-Kindergarten and continuing through high school and beyond, a culture of kindness, mutual respect and personal safety can be cultivated and maintained.

Amazing, FRENCH PROTESTORS CHANT ABOUT “TRUMP”

By Chad Rhodes

france 2018 riot yellow vest protest

Over 300,000 people nation wide joined in demonstrations across France on Tuesday. Calls for Macron not to raise taxes. Reports from France say at least 300 people arrested, 110 injured and 2 dead after mass confrontation.

Macron’s complaints are that the “French complain too Much”, to raising taxes and implementing reform across the board for wages to retirement and not for the good of the people.

Now Protesters have taken to the streets of Paris, France and are chanting “We Want Trump”.

The people of France are enraged over the decisions by President Macron to raise taxes, especially after taking the deal that put this country into poverty. The deal that was made with Obama along with the U.N. to expand the immigration “Must Take” sanctions on the wealthier countries. These countries were flooded with immigrants by the 10’s of thousands and France was one of the countries.

This was enforcement and advocacy of strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom.

Crimes ranging from robbery, murders to sexual assault. Both the men, women and children of France have been harmed. The countries have reported crimes tripled after the first year the immigrants arrived.

Little to No News spread across the world. Very few received news of any trouble until footage of the immigrant villages being set on fire by the locals.

Just remember these are just a few issues. These countries have taken on the burden and debt to house, feed, cloth and to render medical care for every single immigrant that came to their country.

The debt started to chip away at the wealth of France and the people of France. Many of these countries are now close to being bankrupt and 3rd world countries financially.

Now the tables are turning on Macron after unemployment and crime rates have sky rocketed in France that had 1/3 the crime rate before the sanctions.

Amazing how a country as France, that has been torn apart by the immigrant movement within their own country have been silenced by the governing power.

NIGHTMARE: Human Trafficking In America

By Chad Rhodes

I struggle as I write another article profiling what is truly one of America’s largest $100 billion crime businesses. Especially when high powered politicians and some of the richest people are involved in “Keeping the Secret Quiet”.

sex trafficking 3

So many people turn a blind eye when it comes to this crime. This is one good reason to close our borders and enough to make me want stronger laws against these criminals and their clients. But good luck with that.

For every 100 immigrants who come to America 72% will be traded on the human trafficking market. That is children, women and men.

This is modern enslavement of immigrants and citizens alike. Taken and traded on the black market without their permission.

sex trafficking 1

The children of America are being kidnapped by the 1000’s and we still sit idle. The time has come when American’s need to take a stand and stop this hideous crime.

To have a nightmare is just that, a nightmare. But to be set in a nightmare is what sex trafficking is. These are humans, some barley 10 years old are forced to have sex day in and day out. With no light for them at the end of the tunnel, some try and run, they end up being brought back to be drugged and beaten into submission. Some successfully commit suicide or end up with a bullet in their head all because they wanted their freedom back.

human Trafficking definitions

The handler’s create obedient slaves, by forcing the person to take drugs or threaten to harm their family and loved ones. These so call”Handler’s” are and do look like mom and pop or the nice neighbor next door. They belong to the church, possibly even the Minister or Deacon of the church is running the trafficking. Male or female that big $$$ pay off is to much of a temptation.

Vacation Hawaii $30 a night

There are stories of immigrant mother’s and father’s sending their children to the USA for a better life only to find out they never made it. The people the parents paid to smuggle them into the USA take them and sell them to the highest bidder in the black market.

Human_Trafficking-Airports.JPEG-0b8f8_c0-225-2593-1736_s885x516

I can no longer sit idle while so much of these crimes against the human race continues in the United States Of America or any where in the world today.

I do not believe that these people chose this life. We need to do everything in our power to stop the multi-billion dollar business.

There are millions of trafficked sex slaves around the world today. Over 100,000 who are being trafficked in the United States.

You may wonder why this is such a popular crime against humans. From this, over $100 Billion in profits last year. That is more then any of the fortune 500 companies put together has ever made in a year. Not even their best year…

  • No you can’t, You crazy, you can’t do that…
  • Why you want to mess with that, you can’t do that.
  • What you think you better than us. You want to be like them.
  • Being Called Uncle Tom, Cracker Topper, Gringo Pinto just because you want an education and a better life.
  • You work 3 jobs and live in a different neighborhood because you don’t want your children to be bullied or killed.

No One is entitled to anything and your great, great, great grandmother is gone, long gone and so are those people who did those hideous crimes. Don’t let yourself be oppressed by the memories of where it came from… The bigotry, hatred and racism from one another has got to stop. Stop and realize some people of power are trying to start a race war to further the oppression and it’s not president Trump.
