The height of Zuckelbergs hypocrisy is that he doesn’t ban all sex offenders from Facebook. Billionare Jeffery Epstein has two face book accounts. He’s out of Florida with multiple houses and a love for traveling. I wonder if he will get special permission to travel now? I would love to hear what he thinks of the ever changing sex offender laws.

The Internet appears to be a human right for some and not for others!

Of course, you can be a non convicted sex offender, a mass murderer, a stalker, a con artist, an identity thief or simply a humble multi- billionaire who gets people to willingly and for free give him all sorts of private information so that he can sell it to marketers.

Think of Brian Banks, a high school football star with a college scholarship waiting upon his graduation–until he became a felon and Registered Sex Offender. But he was not prohibited from using Facebook, and that became the DNA that freed him from the lifetime brand. The high school girl who lied about being raped reached out to him on Facebook and later admitted she lied. He was exonerated. A few years too late for the scholarship, for the amazing football career he might have had, and too late to save his mother’s home and car, which she sold to pay legal fees, but he no longer is an RSO.

There are many innocents like Brian Banks who plead guilty rather than risk a trial that could mean years in prison with a public defender that didnt fight very hard for Brian.
