How many sex offenders live near you?

I'm trying to see if my area is really bad compared to others. It seems like it is! If you go to http://www.familywatchdog.us/ and put in your zip code and state, then hit search, it will pop up with a map of all the registered sex offenders in your zip code. I have 172 in my zip code, most of them listed as crimes against children (you can tell if their crimes are against children or adults). What about your area?

  • I only know of one. He lives across the street! He had sex with a 16 YO girl. Needless to say DD is not allowed in the front yard. I can't wait to move!

  • I need to check my new addrs but where I used to live there was one in my building. DK until a co-worker that lived in the building told me. That scared the crap out of me. I had also found out he was gay, and I have a son, so that made me super nervous (SP?).
