That’s what the title to the article could have read, instead it says, “Sex offender compliance check conducted, 18 arrests made”.
The title sounds awful, but if you read the article it tells something different. “The LVMPD’s Sex Offender Apprehension Team, in conjunction with the United States Marshals Service Sex Offender Predator Apprehension Team and Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force, reached out to over 620 registered sex offenders”
in context 18 out of 620 is a drop in the bucket. especially when 15 of the 18 were arrested for technical registration violations and not new sex offenses. Technical violations that are not new crimes for anyone other than someone on the registry. So in reality… 99.5% of persons required to register didn’t re offend!!!
Somehow that’s a totally different story.
