Sex Offenders Names Turned Over
Shel Israel (my blogging guru) posts on Global Neighbourhoods today that MySpace turns over 7000 Sex Offender names to Authorities.
While I’m usually pretty quick to start spouting off about infringements of personal freedoms, I have to admit I have no problem with bringing these human toilet-brushes into the light. As a soon-to-be-father, I think…
WARNING: ULTRA-CONSERVATIVE OPINION TO FOLLOW:
…they all ready have far more rights that I would give them. Ie: The right to own a personal computer, the right to live within 10 miles of anyone under the age of 18, the right to continue to possess a penis, etc. (And, yes, I know that, penis or no penis, they can continue to prey on the young and create their filth, but I still think it would be a good deterrent.)
I agree with Shel’s statement, “I think a society has a primary obligation to protect its children. There are no higher priorities. I think MySpace is to be commended for turning over the names.”
Here’s MySpace’s official comments on the subject.
