Nebraska Sex-Offender Website Guidelines
Guideline 5: The Nebraska Legislature’s finding from the 1990s that all sex offenders are dangerous was not based on any scientific, empirical evidence. It was a politically-motivated “made up” finding that was based on popular myth. There is a vast and growing body of evidence that the reverse is actually true – that sex offenders are among the least likely to reoffend. The Legislative Finding is made up in the same way that the oft-repeated “50,000 online predators” number was made up. This round, easy-to-remember number (which is just a lie) was fabricated by the network that brought you “To Catch a Predator.”
