    Protect those dear to us....

    Check out this link...

    Pretty scary when you think about it, but it is good to stay aware. Keep your family safe.

    Just enter your address in the appropriate fields and it will give you a map of your area and all the offenders nearby and what their crimes were.

    Take care,

    While this a good concept, just remember a few things....

    1) Bad Data In, Bad Data Out
    2) People still have to teach their kids to be the people you want them to be, this information just points out the KNOWN danger, there is still the unknown.

    Just as a statement of how the data can be flawed, for one person it showed up four times at the same address and the same name......

    I am not trying to make light of this issue, I think the key is teaching kids to be safe and aware.

    I think the site's server is really really slow. It was doing that when I looked and then I checked the progress bar and saw that it was going slow. I have a really fast computer so I am sure it wasn't my computer. Given time each dot is a different person.

    It messed my running up so bad I had to reboot.

    Besides, I'd like to know where a bunch of other types of crooks live too.

    I agree also. We must be vigilant in teaching our kids to be safe. So much has changed since we were kids. I remember living in Japan as a kid and being able to safely wander around Yokota AFB and go off base without adults. I was only 7-10 yrs old at the time. Wouldn't dare do that today.

    Thumbs up Los Angeles

    Los Angeles in the forties. 9-12 years old, get on the streetcar and go downtown, the beach, Lincoln Park motorcycle races, baseball games, Elysian(sp?) park swimming, Bimini Plunge swimming, Venice Pier amusement park, and Santa Monica beach. All without adults!! We rode our bicycles down the Los Angeles River (dry). We didn't know that when it rains up in the mountains the river can fill up suddenly!! I probably should be dead instead of where I am.

    This is actually the safest time, in every way, to be alive. The difference is that fear and paranoia are much more rampant.

    I agree. Believe me, I dont want to get lost in Detroit, but I also wouldnt want to wander in on a gold mine in the 1850's.

    I totally agree.
    There is way to much sway that people buy into, both conciously and conversely, with popular media fueling the flames of paranoia, hatred, fear and just plain stupidity.
    Burn your TV.
    Really.
    To hell with TIVO!
    Just ride, live and smile.

    yeah, its ridiculous the way kids are raised today, i remember way back in the 80s, when i was a wee lad, i used to spend all day in the countryside. now its all video games and "stay inside". poo poo to that, and another thing, ever notice how parents are the BIGGEST germ-a-phobes lately??? i eat off the floor regularly to keep myself resistant, and any kids i might one day have will be doing the same thing!
