Here we are folks, the end of another year. It's hard for me to believe 2006 is over. Seems like the older I get the quicker the time goes by. I've been spending the day going over market statistics for last year and getting my head around some new strategies for my business next year. My intention was to post about these things today but then I decided to take a quick look to see how many registered sex offenders they are in my market, Poinciana Fl. Well, I have to say, I was shocked. There are, as of today, 108 registered sexual offenders in Poinciana. Wow!!! That is really disturbing. One of the most disturbing things, is that Poinciana, has a population of a little over 63,000 and 50% of those people are 18 or under. That means there are almost 32,000 children in an area with 108 registered sex offenders.
You can search you area at www.familywatchdog.us. Spend some time on this site, as it has some very interesting information on sexual offenders. Maybe you should give this link to your potential buyers so they can do some research before purchasing.
Here's a couple of statistics from the site I found very interesting. California has the most registered offenders with 44,853. But just so you don't think this is a problem restricted to the most populated States, Arkansas has the most per million by far with 5,932 per mil. population, S Dakota is 2nd with 2,764 per mil. 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually molested before the age of 18!!! Folks these numbers are outrageous!! And remember these are only the ones that have been caught and have been registered.
Do you find this as shocking as I do? Did you know, in the State of Florida, we do not have to disclose this to potential Buyers? What does your State say about this? Do you know where your children are?
