N.J. Seeking Help Tracking Sex Offenders Online
AP) TRENTON, N.J. The New Jersey attorney general has asked a dozen Internet social networking sites to find out whether convicted New Jersey sex offenders have created profiles on their sites.
The move comes after the state found at least 269 convicted New Jersey sex offenders registered on the popular Internet social networking site MySpace.com, which has found 29,000 total profiles created by convicted sex offenders.
Attorney General Anne Milgram asked for information from Xanga.com, Facebook, Community Connect, TagWorld, Bebo, MyYearbook.com, Tagged, Friendster, LiveJournal, Imeem, Hi5 and Gaia Online.
"MySpace's identification of such a large number of registered sex offenders on its site underscores the need for awareness and action by all networking sites," Milgram said.
Milgram said she expected that MySpace users had profiles on other social networking sites. She expressed concern sex offenders who had profiles removed by MySpace switched to other Internet sites.

Sorry to say this, but didn't we all already know this? Good luck trying to keep up with all the freaks. Just like in "real life" it's a given you have sex offenders in your area. Do not people realize some have not offended yet? Some have not been convicted? The ones who actually keep with the "rules" have vehicles and internet access. I so hate to say it, but given these sick, perverts obviously go to where the prey is it's up to us to keep our children safe as well as ourselves.
