Where Do Known Predators Live?

This Family Watch Dog site was developed by John Walsh from Americas Most Wanted. When you visit this site you can enter your address and a map will pop up with your house as a small icon of a house. There will be red, blue and green dots surrounding your entire neighborhood. When you click on these dots a picture of a criminal will appear with his or her home address and the description of the crime he or she has committed. The best thing is that you can show your children these pictures and see how close these people live to your home or school.

That was creepy. Useful, I suppose, but creepy to see. I'm glad I don't have kids to worry about...

Hammer said...

Thankfully none around me.

It has to be remembered though that these include te 18 year old who got caught with 16 year old girlfriends. Or the drunk guy peeing in the park being busted for exposing himself and stuff like that.

Still the majority are sick creeps. There are a couple of really bad ones by my inlaws.

thanks! Looks like my little neighborhood is OK.

Otis said...

Damn! I've got one at .34 miles and another at .4!

The first one is for promoting child porn and the second is sex with a minor.

The good news, my wife isn't listed!

Anne: me too

Hammer: Definately have to take this information with a grain of salt.

Tart: that's good!

Otis: I have a few old perverts around. Yeah, I'm glad hubby wasn't listed either!

Thank you for providing this Post. I live in Texas and although we have a decent web site for registered sex offenders, its not as good or comprehenisive as this one.

Thanks again,
