Someone showed me this interesting site today, It asks for your address, then shows you a map of your area with a little square representing each registered sex offender that lives in your area. Here’s what our map looks like (we are the tiny house in the middle):

Pretty interesting huh? The squares are color coded according to the nature of the crime. If you do the search yourself you can click on each square to see a photo and more information about that individual.

I’m a big fan of redemption and forgiveness, but I want my wife and our soon-to-be daughter to be aware of certain people in our neighborhood that might be particularly dangerous. We seem to have quite a few. Hopefully you wont have quite as many “friendly” neighbors living near you…
