The San Mateo Daily Journal reports that the San Mateo County Civil Grand Jury is saying that The County is at greater risk for child sexual abuse because we're just not doing a very good job monitoring sex offenders.
I'm shocked! SHOCKED, I tell you!
According to the article:
Sexual predators are not investigated to the same degree as they were previously and a coordinated countywide effort to monitor sexual predators is inadequate, according to the report.
The civil grand jury report states that the average sex offender will victimize between 50-150 children before coming to the attention of law enforcement and that at least 50 percent of all convicted sexual predators will re-offend.The article reports that because of funding problems, many of the Sheriff's Office programs that used to monitor known sex offenders have been cut, under the management of San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Monks. Good thing we got rid of that guy this past election! (What?? OH... Well, at least he didn't get 100% of the vote right?)
San Mateo County: Come have sex with our children!
