3) Because you're so retarded I shall explain my reasoning:
It was stated by TheFeniX that 90% of child sexual assaults are by nonstrangers, and that above age 12, 80% are assaulted by nonstrangers. So why shouldn't we do something to try and prevent the 10-20% who are assaulted by strangers?
Hey Flagg, answer the fucking questions. How many rapes annually, nation wide, would be prevented by this law? How many for the area that this law covers?
Now, seeing as Flagg is too stupid to provide numbers for his own case, I'll show everybody why this is a useless law with simple math.
In 1999 there were an estimated 320,000 cases of sexual abuse of a minor and 29% of those cases occurred from a stranger. So that means we end up with 92,800 cases that this law might
do something about. Now, because this law only effects one day of the year we divide by 365 and find out that 254 cases of sexual assault of a minor by a stranger should happen each Halloween. I'm assuming all days are equal until somebody gives numbers showing that stranger rapes of children occur more often on Halloween. Assuming that all cases involve kids getting snatched off of porches by molesters we still see that this law, if 100% effective, will only prevent an astonishingly small number of people anyway.
The facts get worse when we look at the area this law is being passed in. Simi valley has 124,237 people in it compared to the US population of 314,548,000 people. This law 'protects' 0.00039% of the US population and will stop roughly 1 case of abuse per decade if it works with 100% efficiency and we assume that all cases of stranger danger occur because of people pulling kids in off the front step. So 115 people are being effected by a law that will take 1,115 years to have a positive effect on the same number of people.
In short the law is worse than pointless and you could do more to prevent these sorts of things by making prostitutes cheap and legal than you would passing these sorts of worthless hateful laws.
