Child-Molester Issue
2/9/2009 8:17:18 AM

This is an issue of great concern to Linda Settles and others. I truly understand the obstacles she faces. The average mentality in America views child-molesters like farmers view the egg-sucking dog -- shoot it.
One must look at the average human condition and the way that average humans react to the perceived child-molester image. The reaction is uneducated and is, to varying degrees, violent. A child-molester who is incarcerated in any prison, anywhere, will be killed by his fellow convicts, unless he is kept in solitary confinement. Even in County Jail, during trial and before incarceration, the child-molester is at risk of being killed.

For a number of reasons, rehabilitation is not feasible for the incarcerated child-molester in prison, except in a prison where all of the inmates are child-molesters. This would possibly work in any state which has the resources to create and staff such a facility. At the present time, I know of no state with such a project on their plan-board.

Rehabilitation is the key element and it is little understood. For the most part, rehabilitation has been a cash-cow for the various departments of correction, and no rehabilitation program has ever produced reliable stats of effectiveness. This is difficult to accept because the various programs claim high rates of success, but their claims fail to be validated by long-term facts. It is currently accepted that rehabilitation takes place when an individual personally decides, within himself, to change (with or without attendance in any rehabilitative group process). Factually, such change-decisions happen most effectively outside of available rehabilitative programs, and there is a reason for this.

In America, most rehabilitative programs are built on the 12-Step model, and the 12-Step model is flawed. Using the most well-known 12-Step program as an understandable example: AA structure depends upon having an active alcoholic membership in order to validate the operation of the AA chapter. If all of the AA chapter members should go "on the wagon" all at once, that chapter loses its program fodder and the chapter may suffer operational collapse, even to the point of closing its doors (we have cases where this has happened). In such cases, chapter members who start drinking again have no AA chapter to turn to for fellowship or help. If you do an in-depth study of all of the members in any AA chapter, you will find one or more members (we call then "facilitators") who have their own social ways of keeping the other members drinking. And that is the single flaw in all of the 12-Step rehabilitation programs. Creating a rehabilitative program model which does not have this one flaw should be the primary goal of anyone who truly wishes to see rehabilitation become an effective program possibility.

Back to the child-molester (I did digress). When the child-molester has survived incarceration and is thence released back into the community under parole supervision, he finds himself in an adversarial relationship with his neighbors, with city law enforcement and city government, and with his parole supervisors, and there are no available programs to provide relief for him. Under this pressure, it will be natural for him to rebel psychologically and withdraw into the satisfaction of his child-molester nature. In essence, we are pressurizing the problem and making it become a monster. This social process needs to be researched and viable answers found.
