Sadly this map won’t alert you to parents, relatives, teachers, Catholic priests or others your kid already know who are a greater statistical threat.

Why can’t politicians unite the country and focus on common sense populous approaches to solving problems that 90% of us would support? How about outsourcing prisons to China – we could house these offenders for a tenth of the cost. It would save tons of money, we could double prison sentences which combined with staying in a Chinese jail would be a real deterrent. This plan would increase the quality of life and lower crime thereby increasing property values, keep our kids safe and lower the deficit. Maybe Hillary could throw this plan as a hail mary – even I’d vote for her.
