Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants

October 25, 2009 Comments off : The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants in the United States 2006, By Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D. Violent Crimes Institute, LLC Atlanta, Georgia

This privately conducted study discusses the proliferation of sex crimes committed by illegal immigrants. By definition, these illegal immigrants would not be listed on any sex offender registry, and therefore the statistics cited in this study cannot be affected by any SORNA/Adam Walsh Act laws.

After conducting a 12 month in-depth study of illegal immigrants who committed sex crimes and murders for the time period of January 1999 through April 2006 , it is clear that the U.S. public faces a dangerous threat from sex predators who cross the U.S. borders illegally.

There were 1500 cases analyzed in depth. They included: serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides, and child molestation committed by illegal immigrants. Police reports, public records, interviews with police, and media accounts were all included. Offenders were located in 36 states, but it is clear, that the most of the offenders were located in states with the highest numbers of illegal immigrants. California was number one, followed by Texas, Arizona, New Jersey, New York, and Florida.

Based on population numbers of 12,000,000 illegal immigrants and the fact that young males make up more of this population than the general U.S. population, sex offenders in the illegal immigrant group make up a higher percentage. When examining ICE reports and public records, it is consistent to find sex offenders comprising 2% of illegals apprehended. Based on this 2% figure, which is conservative, there are approximately 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States.

This translates to 93 sex offenders and 12 serial sexual offenders coming across U.S. borders illegally per day. The 1500 offenders in this study had a total of 5,999 victims. Each sex offender averaged 4 victims. This places the estimate for victimization numbers around 960,000 for the 88 months examined in this study.

Illegal immigrants who commit sex crimes first cross the U.S. border illegally. Then they gradually commit worse crimes and are continually released back into society or deported. Those who were deported simply returned illegally again. Only 2% of the offenders in this study has no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally. There is a clear pattern of criminal escalation. From misdemeanors such as assault or DUI, to drug offenses, illegal immigrants who commit sex crimes break U.S. laws repeatedly. They are highly mobile, work in low skilled jobs with their hands, use drugs and alcohol, are generally promiscuous, have little family stability, and choose victims who are easy to attack. Their attacks are particularly brutal, and they use a hands-on method of controlling and/or killing their victims.

Perhaps our focus should turn to crimes committed by illegal immigrants, before we take away constitutional rights of American citizens !

Idaho Girl Scouts Moving Due to Sex Offenders

October 25, 2009 Comments off : South Idaho Girl Scouts moving due to sex offenders.

Twin Falls, Idaho (AP) – The Twin Falls headquarters for 620 Girls Scouts in south-central is moving due to what officials say are too many registered sex offenders in the neighborhood.
(Of course, they were forced into areas such as this by Residency Restrictions)

Shelli Rambo Robertson, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Silver Sage Council, tells The Times-News that the location on Fourth Avenue is not a safe environment because there are more than 50 registered sex offenders living within one mile. The office is in an industrial part of town next to a tattoo parlor. The group last month discontinued meetings at the headquarters and is moving to a new office near the College of Southern Idaho.

However, the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office reports there are 23 registered sex offenders living within one mile of the new location.

(Well, that should rectify the situation…)

YouTube Star Jailed for Violating Sex Offender Law

October 25, 2009 Comments off : Sex offender Edarem, YouTube video ‘star,’ jailed for probation violation.
Edarem’s YouTube Channel

On YouTube , 77 year old Edward Muscare is known by his user name “Edarem,” and his recordings show an older man lip syncing and singing songs. Many of them have drawn hundreds of thousands of page views. Muscare’s online fame, though, helped land him back in jail.

Muscare’s videos have become so viral that law-enforcement agencies in Florida and South Carolina, where he has been living, became aware of his online presence. The former Lake County resident was jailed on violation of probation and failure to comply with conditions related to his status as a registered sex offender. One of those conditions was that he not use the Internet or other computer services, according to court records.

Now, some of Muscare’s YouTube followers are coming to his defense by posting messages online, urging “Freedom for Edward Muscare” and “Libertad para Edarem.” One Muscare supporter has posted a lengthy message addressed to Lake County Circuit Judge Mark Hill on YouTube.

“I am writing you on behalf of an individual who is now in jail for posting videos of his dogs and advice on how to scratch your back,” the YouTube user wrote. “If there is any justice in the world Edward Muscare will be liberated.”

Muscare has an arraignment scheduled for Monday. Court records show Muscare, who once lived in Lady Lake, avoided a five-year prison sentence when he pleaded guilty in 2007 and received five years’ probation with special conditions of sex-offender probation. He had apparently moved out of his Lady Lake home and to a new residence in Orangeburg, S.C., but he failed to notify officials about the move as required.

In a letter sent to Hill at that time, Muscare wrote, “In the past 21 years, the only law I broke was leaving Florida in December 2005 without notifying the Sheriff’s Office. And I did that only because of threats to my life and property.” Muscare declined a request for an interview Friday at the Lake County Jail.

His criminal problems in Central Florida date to 1986, when the Orlando Sentinel identified Muscare as a former Kansas City television host who was arrested in San Diego on charges that he molested a 14-year-old Orange County boy while he was in Orlando. In Kansas City he worked as a late-night-television-show host known as Uncle Ed. He later worked for a station in San Diego.

In 1987, Muscare pleaded no contest to sexual battery, according to records with the 9th Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office. He was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison followed by 10 years of supervised probation. Records show he also was ordered not be alone with children younger than 14, state attorney’s spokeswoman Danielle Tavernier said.

In 1998, he was accused of failing to promptly register as a sex offender after coming off his probation. In 2006, he was hit with the similar charge of failure to comply when he made the move out of state.

Muscare’s history has not fazed his online fans, though. Below his “Oh, Pretty Woman” video, one fan wrote in typical unpunctuated Web-speak, “edarem you look like a cross between uncle fester and doc out of back to the future. and maybe a bit of boris karloff thrown in the mix. you are a true youtube legend and will be for some time to come.” Another user wrote, “this guy is one cool grandpa.”

At least one supporter, the one with the lengthy note addressed to Hill, suggested that Muscare might not have controlled what videos appeared online. His defense lawyer, Jeremy Pykosz, an assistant public defender who just received the case, said that could be a defense, but he must review the facts first. ” Someone could take different videos and post them online without their knowledge or permission,” he said.
