Summary
Describes how sensational cases, public fear, public hysteria, pseudo science, psychology, political bandstanding, and economic factors like the prison industry have combined to create increasingly draconian laws supposedly meant to protect our children by targeting sex offenders. If this sounds complex and multi-faceted, it is. There are no simple causes, and no simple answers. Mr. Landon covers such diverse topics as the penile plethysmograph, therapists mandated reporting, Oprah Winfrey, and police stings involving fictitious children in chat rooms. Ms. Halleck adds stories about affected individuals. Her chapters recount the effects, often unintended, of these designer sex laws on the men, women, and children who lead ordinary and law-abiding lives
