5 year old ‘sex offender’.

5-year-old sex offender on crime list.
From the NZ Herald:

A 5-year-old and two 6-year-old boys were apprehended by police for sexual assault last year.

They were among 716 children aged under nine who were reprimanded in the 2008/09 financial year for offences from unlawfully taking a bicycle and possession of cannabis to threatening to kill and assault with a weapon.

The 5-year-old and two 6-year-olds who committed sexual assaults were among 12 children who committed sexual offences. Police did not give details of the offending, citing privacy issues.

A 5- year old can’t be a sex offender, they are imitating what they have seen on TV, or what they have seen their parents or relatives doing. It is also likely they may also be repeating what has been done to them.

    My guess would be that those children were either sexually abused themselves, or they witnessed abuse in the home (father beating/raping mother, etc.) Those kids will need extensive therapy to counteract what damage has been done, and watched closely through their teen years to ensure they don’t have predatory tendencies.

    It’s awful enough that many pedophiles start to realize their obsession over children at age 12… it was absolutely horrible when 4 boys, the youngest aged 9, raped an 8 year old girl in Arizona last year. That kids as young as 5 are now committing sex offenses is absolutely terrifying. Something desperately needs to be done to stop this downward spiral. I think that the two best places to start would be cracking down on domestic violence and child sexual abuse. Those crimes need stiffer penalties, and children need to see that… not so much to discourage them from continuing the cycle, but to show them that they matter and that victimizing others is morally unacceptable. Children need the knowledge of right and wrong reinforced, and their empathy to be strengthened.

    Also, I think it’s very important to clarify, for the sake of any RSOLers, Sosenites, or anyone who is SoHOPEful, a BLer, GLer, CLer, etc., that these children are *not* listed on any sex offender registry. The “crime list” referenced in the link above is a list of crimes committed by children under the age of 9. You know, just in case any of them were getting any crazy ideas that they could use this in their arguments to abolish sex offender registries.

    Well said! I agree with what you say, but I think it is unlikely that children of 5 or 6 would be added to NZ’s sex offender registry, they are not adults so can’t be tried (and convicted) for their ‘offenses’.

    What is a Sosenite BTW?

  4. March 16, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    A Sosenite is a member of Sosen – Sex Offender Support and Education Network… read the link and don’t let the name fool you. Here are a few of the other terms you might find on a pedophile site or an anti-pedophile site:

    SOhopeful (sorry, got the caps wrong on that one.)
    more pedospeak, including:
    BL – Boylove (A “boylover” is an adult who is sexually attracted to
    GL – Girllove
    CL – childlove
    (As you can imagine, these people don’t actually “love” these children.)

    Ooops… I didn’t make sure I finished that post before hitting “submit”…

    A “boylover” is an adult who is sexually attracted to boys who are minors. A “girllover” is an adult who is sexually attracted to girls who are minors. A “child lover” is an adult who is sexually attracted to children. There is actually no “love” involved in their attractions, because if they actually loved the children they claim to love, they’d realize that sexual contact is harmful to them and they’d keep their mitts off.

    I guess calling themselves boy/girl/child-lovers and describing how they ‘love’ children is their way of convincing themselves that what they do is acceptable, when in fact deep down they know they are really boy/girl/child-molesters and do not ‘love’ children at all.

    They know they are just using children for their own gratification and do not give two hoots about the well-being of their victims. As long as they get their jollies off and can brag about it to all the other sicko so-called boy/girl/child-lovers out there – who then slap them on the back and tell them how awesome they are, which further reinforces what they want to believe – then they are happy.

    Isn’t it weird how SOSEN and SOhopeful have a lot of women in leadership positions? Given that most sex offenders, pedophiles etc are men; why are there so many women willing to support and encourage what these sickos do?

  8. March 21, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    That’s exactly what they do, Mike. Unfortunately, that is the *only* purpose their online message boards serve. They also use them to share tips on how to groom children (and the adults around them) in the hopes that they will not get caught abusing the children. They also reinforce each others thinking errors (such as their supposed belief that children enjoy being molested.)

    As for women in leadership roles of those organizations, at least one of them is really a guy using a made-up name. One of them is the mother of a registered sex offender, who really could have done more to help her son had she stayed as far away from such groups as she could. Instead, she chose to band with RSOLers and with pedophiles, engaged in victim-bashing, and incited many registered sex offenders to break laws. She has claimed that the RSO’s are the “real” victims, while the children that pedophiles victimize, and adults who are raped, should just get on with their lives and “quit being professional victims”.

    Then they call those of us who call them on their BS “vigilantes”.

    Any woman who would support any such group should have her uterus removed IMO.

    I almost forgot… they also share tips on how to wipe their hard drives, password protect files, etc., in order to make it harder for LE to find the child porn (CP) stored on their computers.

    I AM TRULY AFRAID OF THE FUTURE…knowing it’s only going to get worse 😦

    I shudder to think of the future for my children and grandkids 😦
