Making money off sex offender information

NEW BLOOMFIELD — How much money would you pay to know if any sex offenders live in your area?

Santa Barbara, Calif.-based Kids Live Safe charges its subscribers $29.97 per month, or $59.88 per year, to tell them where registered sex offenders live in relation to their houses, schools or other places they frequent. Users can set up email alerts for up to four addresses, install filters to monitor their children’s online activity, and create profiles of their children to give to law enforcement if their children ever disappear.

How dumb or lazy can one get?
Apparently enough so as to not go on the Megan’s Law site and get the information for oneself, for FREE, since one cares about their kids so much.

I am NOT surprised at all. If someone is stupid enough to think that know where someone who committed a crime lives that that information is going to make them “safe” from future crimes then they are stupid enough to part with $29.95 for something that they could get for free…oh and just for the record, the information is worthless so go get it for free…your tax dollars pay for it! Money well spent from the US government…America…Land of the free where 25% of the population is locked up. But hey…who cares…pretty much no one it seems.

Free vs a monthly fee? Let me think about which is the better deal.

I will take free useless information over paid useless information any time.

We need to be paid to be your slave..we need to be paid to your stalking ..we need to be paid to be in your business.

Since it’s information on us, shouldn’t we be the ones making the money?

Just another creep data mining and using us to make money and we don’t get a nickle?!?!

The law may have changed but it used to be someone couldn’t profit off of criminal history records. I don’t recall the case name but think it was because of privacy reasons.

There is an old but comprehensive Attorney General opinion. The court opinion I’m thinking of might be in there.
