One of the safety concerns for a lot of people is living in an area where there are registered Sexual Predators. These are people who were found guilty and located into an area where they’re usually told not to be around places like schools or places where the type of people that they target are easily accessible. Through registeredsexualpredators.org, you can input your zipcode and see if there are any registered sex offenders living in your area. The website allows you to look up sexual offenders based on which state you’re interested in or, more specifically, your area code. The website also gives you information on Megan’s Law. Megan’s Law was named for Megan Kanka, a young girl who was kidnapped, raped, brutalized and murdered by a sex offender that lived in her neighbourhood. The law allows the public to know exactly where registered sexual offenders are and it allows this information to be available to the public. The website is a useful one and this information is so important for everyone who may be living in an area with a registered sex offender. After all, if you were living down the street from a registered sex offender – I think you’d want to know.

    We have something like that here, it’s good but kinda disgusting, like it can lead to people being villified and whatever, but then why shouldn’t they?
