Regarding your work into sex offenders.  The first sex offenders course i attended in 1966 I learned that pedophiles can not be cured.  It is a sad fact but true.  Nothing over the past 40 yrs has changed that perception.  I'm sorry your liberal applications of education etc., just do not work. The only thing that works is incarceration.  Polygraphy is the only useful tool in the containment method.

You omitted my statement about civil comittment...

And of course, pedophiles cannot be cured of their prediliction, hence my statement on civil comittment. However, increased supervision (GPS, random checks, TC) also works when done correctly...

As for my supposed "liberal" applications, I only go where the evidence is strongest. And you have no evidence for either my conservative or liberal persuasion, only your assumptions...but then polygraphy is only based on assumptions, not evidence, so it's not surprising you'd make that logical leap... 

And if polygraph is the only good thing about the containment method, then my original statement polygraph sabotaging its effectiveness stands...
