Of Monsters and Men
The authors mention that it is only 1 percent of sex offenders who are very dangerous, but they are driving society’s fear that has led to all sex offenders being labeled monsters, and to all of them being inhumanely and unjustly treated not only through civil commitment but also by labeling and stigmatizing them for life.
Do you believe that it is appropriate for society to treat sex offenders differently from other felons?
