Michael Harden's problems were just beginning when agents rolled up to his cluttered trailer to arrest him for letting the battery in his GPS ankle bracelet run low, making it difficult to track the movements of the paroled child molester. Then the agents found something even more disturbing: graphically sexual photographs on his cell phone. Seven months after he left prison, the 44-year-old Sacramento man was on his way back.

He was one of more than 285 paroled sex offenders swept up throughout California this week by recently formed law enforcement teams, which were created partly as a response to agents fumbling their attempt to monitor paroled sex offender Phillip Garrido.

The specially trained apprehension teams also have their own intelligence units armed with $300,000 worth of computer software. Their job is to scan the Internet and electronic databases for clues to the whereabouts of some of the more than 13,000 California ex-convicts who have broken off contact with their parole agents.

13,000...

They will all be hired by TSA for groping. I always though TSA would become Obama’s black shirts. Everytime I went to the airport they would look more like cops. Military like sweaters, then badges and I think some are armed now.

paroled child molester

There is no cure for this disease. They should be put down like the sick wild animals that they are.

If they want to find sex offenders, especially against children, check the nudist camps.

Sorry, that's a myth. We were all told that. It was wrong. They are actually less recidivist than other criminals (my theory is because so many were falsely convicted in the first place).

Yep, the horror of 17 year olds having sex with 18 year olds will not stand. Big govt will put a stop to it!

Citation/source for this data?

Nowadays many convictions are based upon DNA evidence, usually sperm. How do you get a false conviction from that?

Your “theory” is that “many” were “falsely convicted?”
That is a very vague, yet disturbing, statement. You realize saying something like that would make others wonder about YOU.

You weren't aware of the 80's/90's witch hunts? Wenatchee? McMartin? Fells Acres? etc, etc etc? You don't remember when every other bitter custody dispute resulted in a child abuse charge?

My "theory"????

It would be a lot less work if they just left them in prison. No need for ankle bracelets - we’d know exactly where they were.

Seems one, um, got away recently:
Garrido is charged with kidnapping an 11-year-old girl, Jaycee Lee Dugard, and hiding her from parole agents for 18 years in a fenced-off area in the backyard of his Antioch home, where she bore two of his children.

There was a guy that finally got convicted for raping and killing a 24-year old in out town. Seems he was out of prison for nearly a year before he did it. He had been in prison for raping a 14 year-old. He got 3 years for that. THREE YEARS!!!???

(And he was 27 at the time - so no 16 year-old boyfriend thing going on).
