    Yeah those kids couldn't be lying. After all they didn't do anything to deserve getting thrown into juvie.

    Not all but you know some of them are so your statistic is questionable.

    Well what do you think is the real number then? And what sort of statistic would you find disturbing?

    How the hell should I know what the real number is?

    And how can anyone know the real number when a lot of sexual abuse victims never tell anyone about it and a lot of people lie and say they were sexually abused if it will get them some sympathy or special treatment?

    Well I wasn't asking for a exact guess. I was asking for your opinion of a rough estimate.
