so of course that correlates into child rape how?


It doesn't correlate in any way. That's why I said "I wouldn't make that statement". ;-)

I can see your point though. I just thought I'd make the statement that my army friends are the craziest and horniest guys I know. But I do not want to compare them in ANY WAY to child molesters. No way, no how.

Yeah, that works for me too. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I was explaining what I believe this guy meant by his comment-

dannyolbb wrote:I have 17 on my page, four of them child offenders. But that's no big surprise. I live next to a military base.


Which I think is obvious to anyone who's read the entire thread.

Man oh man, this is becoming a dangerous thread to post in. This will be my last post in it. Before I exit though, I'd like to state that-

I am not a child molester. I am disgusted by child molesters.

Some of my closest friends are army guys, and they are NOT child molesters.

I do not believe in any way that army guys are more likely to be sex offenders than anyone else.

And please don't quote me in ways that make it seem like I'm saying something I'm not.

Thank you, I'm out. :-°

The military comment comes from the fact that you're stuck overseas in Iraq for 2-3 years and when you come back you have live in a crappy town. You haven't seen women in years. There are dozens of strip clubs. You have to sit here for a month or two while you decompress. I think it drives some men to rape.

Also, yeah, I think there is a certain personality trait that military men have that is exacerbated by the training - the raised testosterone, the training, etc.

I didn't mean to cause a fuss. It's just something you know when you grow up with the army. There's a certain type of soldier with instincts that are brought out by the training. I just assumed everyone knew that about the soldiers.

I can't find absolute statistics, since they aren't often categorized as such, but

Veterans are more likely than others to be in prison for a violent offense but less likely to be serving a sentence for drugs.
At year-end 1997, sex offenders accounted for 1 in 3 prisoners held in military correctional facilities.


http://www.nchv.org/background.cfm

Of course, this is probably colored by the fact that the branch of the military I know is the Army:

Nearly 60% of incarcerated veterans had served in the Army.


You know... now that I look at this, there may be a way to tell if my gut instinct was justified.

Among adult males in 1998, there were 937 incarcerated veterans per 100,000 veteran residents.


Of course, this could be due to the fact that the military is mostly guys - and guys are much more likely to be sex offenders.

Was anyone else in the military or settled in a military town. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has this idea that there's a certain... animalism that the training releases that has unintended side effects.

fair enough.

Regarding danny's post, no where in your quotes does it state anything about child molestation, only sex offenders, which, I would contend, are not mostly made up of child sex offenders. Not to downplay the seriousness and disturbed nature of adult rapists, but child molesters/rapists are the most disgusting people on the face of the earth and to stereotype soldiers as this is terrible.

I mean, they get accused of being baby-killers, now they're being accused of being baby-molesters? :-t

Oh, absolutely. I didn't mean to imply that we had a lot of child molesters b/c I was near a military base. Only that we have a lot of sex offenders. Maybe that's why everyone jumped down my throat. That'll teach me to post when I'm exhausted.

There was only 3 in my area, and I know all 3 of them from shopping in the store. Guess I will have to keep my eyes definitely more alert on Saturday mornings when my little girl goes to work with me sometimes.
