There are sex offenders living in your neighborhood.

Yup, Its true. There is no question about it.

I just watched a show on how sex offenders move back into regular neighborhoods and live among us. THEN I found this registry and found out that there are 7 living within 5 miles of me. I am fit to be tied right now. If you want to know what will likely be the very disturbing truth, you should check out this link.

Desktop or laptop only. Link won't work on mobile.

This link will tell you who and where the sex offenders in your area are

prepare to be furious......

Rob ~ I was a public defender after I graduated from law school.  NEVER trust that your kids will be safe.  I am sorry to say that.  But it is true. There are predators who are strangers and offenders who are family.  My kids hated that I wouldn't let them walk 3 blocks to school.  I am glad I didn't.

I was with him at his first appearance.  I visited him in jail with the guy that ended up doing the trial. 

I so don't believe in the death penalty, but if there ever was a reason for it, it was here.  He was executed.  I worked in front of the judge that sentenced him. 

I was a stand-by atty for an idiot fat as hell guy in a wheel chair that wanted to represent himself.  He had molested his daughter.  He confessed on the stand!  So glad when that one was over.

These are just a couple examples.  People that think that this doesn't happen are just ignorant.  Protect your children!!!

Though this is a great tool, I think it tends to fool our minds into thinking that if we just know who the offenders are around us we can protect our kids. That is far from true. The fact is that the majority of sexual abuse happens under our own noses by those who we trust, family and friends. A stranger will never get my children, Im too smart for that. Its the people I trust that worries me. And that is why I don't trust anyone. I can't. And if you think I am just a worry wart, think again. I speak from personal experience.

Tara ~ we know about it.  You are not a worry wart.  I know exactly what you are saying.  Most of us don't have the unfortunate and horrifying fact of this.  But some do. 

I kind of feel bad about sharing such awful stuff, but think it is something that everyone needs to be aware of.  Most will be first time offenders.  They cannot be rehabilitated.  They can't be fixed. They have mostly been abused as children themselves.  But they will escalate to killing. 

So Rob's link is good, but not perfect.  You have to protect your kids.

Hi everyone. I'm new to the site but I saw this and wanted to comment.

I know how scary these topics can be but the thing to remember is these tools don't disclose all the information necessary to make accurate judgements about the people on the list.

I am a Graduate student in psychology and I'm finishing up my masters degree, then earning my PhD. I say this not because I want to seem like a know it all, but that I've had experience in related areas.

First, the term sex offender is very broadly used. It refers to individuals who have committed a number of crimes. The reality is only about 3% of sex offenders will commit another sex related crime, but 70% will commit some other form of crime. That may make them seem like bad people, but the thing to remember is they are singled out in our community. They are treated like outcasts and may even be discriminated against. There is a good possibility that due to those pressures, they commit other crimes. It may be hard to find a job when anyone who goes on one of these sites can see your photo.

Secondly, I know it's a common mistake to label all sex offenders as child molesters. There are a range of actions that can have you labeled as a sex offender. that's why they also list their conviction. Which brings me to my third point.

The conviction isn't always what it seems. Text messages, public nudity, prostitution, and a number of other things (depending on the state) can land you a sex offender list.

Finally, this is in response to your last post SK. It's not true that sexual offenders cannot be rehabilitated. If you are speaking specifically about individuals who have been convicted of child molestation, a good psychologist could work to channel the feelings an emotions in a positive way that isn't damaging to anyone. There really isn't a "fix" for anyone. Even normal people are broken in one way or another. The majority of these individuals have been victims themselves, but being a victim in no way means you will commit a crime. Lastly, the statement, "they will escalate to killing" is a rather harsh, don't you think? Liking all sexual offenders, or even child molesters to killers is a bit extreme. I don't mean to attack your views, but it jumps quickly from "they are all killers" to "lets kill them".

I hope I don't come off as aggressive or confrontational. I just wanted to let you know a few things I've learned. I also feel the up most empathy for individuals who have experienced the horror of being a victim. I wish them as well as everyone well.

Here's a site with some helpful statistics: http://www.statisticbrain.com/sex-offender-statistics/

**This is NOT an attack on Jerry. Please don't take it that way**

Clearly there is a distinction between some "sex offenses" and child molestation.The 18yr old hooking up with the 16yr old etc... However, child molesters are evil. Period. Evil cannot be reconciled with intellect, treated or cured. Any person who intentionally cause harm to a child should be killed. Yup. Dead.

Allowing even the possibility that a convicted offender might be allowed to hurt another child while they are being "rehabilitated" is crap, and anyone who has ever been blessed with a baby knows it. Attempts to figure out why someone is evil or "gee maybe they were a victim too" are likely the luxurious thoughts of someone who has never felt the awesome responsibility of parenthood.

This is just the ranting of the very over protective Dad of a 5yr old girl.

This site has been around for a while. I looked at it once, then realized they are everywhere. I decided I couldn't get worked up because it wouldn't change anything. But as others have said, they're often the people right under your nose. Many times they are found in the place where we should feel our children are safe such as a church, synagogue, mosque, etc. It's not just the priests either.

not the best solution, always room for improvement

Comment by SK on February 24, 2014 at 12:58am

Jerry ~ I was not talking about the people who are termed "sex offenders" because there was a an 18 year old and a 15 year old.  I am speaking from experience defending them.  They are not able to rehabilitate.  They are wired that way.  I wish this wasn't the case, but I know they can't.

You don't know me but I am probably the most liberal person on Clam.  I am so anti death penalty.  But the judge in my case did it and I was okay with it.  I know about how that poor kid died.  The judge didn't even know that.

I wouldn't say these things if they weren't true. 

There is a compulsion in murdering sex offenders.  They can't stop it.  

The reason Rob put this on here is to let everyone know to protect their children.  It is a good thing.  Don't get lazy parents!!!
