Raising Arizona

February 28, 2007

Normally wouldn’t link to something like this, but I’m curious about what’s behind these statistics (or claims, whatever):

According to the Child Welfare League of America, despite having the toughest child porn penalties in the US, Arizona ranks fifth nationally in the rate of children with substantiated reports of abuse and neglect, almost twice the national average.

And the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine report that young children are more likely to die of child abuse or neglect in Phoenix than any other major metropolitan area in the US.

Supremes refuse to hear child porn appeal
