Report from 2008 shows that in California, the re-offense rate was only 3.2%.  That is showing that therapy is 97% successful.  So you have to ask yourself, why as a society, do we make life so difficult for the 97% that will succeed?  Isn’t that counterproductive?  Why not focus on therapy, and stiffen penalties for those that do re-0ffend?  Public witch hunt does nothing for public safety.
