Interesting to me that Offendex and like sites, are breaking the law by providing access to Megan’s Law information, to people who are precluded from accessing the AG’s Megan’s Law website. Seems that people who can not legally look at their Megan’s Law information, might obtain that same data via Offendex or one of the other “keep yourself safe” type sites. Unintended consequences…

Why can’t people listed on the Megan’s Law website look up their own information? I don’t see the logic.

but “Prevents us from holding meetings”
fail and I believe actually violate the Constitution

After reading the article, I’m once again appalled at how much fear and stupidity reign on both sides of the pond with the bottom feeders gorging on the crap that falls to the bottom.
Paying for prurient information on an individual or feeding these lowlifes cash to encourage victimization is appalling.
For instance, the 60 year old who fed them thousands of dollars regardless of how much it hurt other victims should be ashamed of more than just his history of sex abuse.
Jeffrey Hermes, director of the Digital Media Law Project at Harvard University as quoted in the article is a prime example of the definition of not able to see the forest for the trees.
And he states: “the websites are probably in the clear for publishing personal information — even if a person no longer is required to register as an offender or has no record at all.”
“There’s no right to be forgotten in the United States, as long as the information they [the websites] contain is accurate, it shouldn’t matter.”
How does that address the lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court, Central District of California last week, which alleges that in addition to squeezing money from the plaintiffs, the sites have violated state laws regulating publicity rights and inflicted emotional harm upon the plaintiffs.


We are not anonymous like Brent Oesterblad thought he was.
We do not forgive cyberbullies like Brent Oesterblad.
We do not forget cyberbullies like Brent Oesterblad.


I wonder how long before this lawsuit is resolved…
