Ugh really? Craigslist is notorious enough already. Now it was used to help setup a sting operation. More baffling is why the San Luis Obispo police were dealing with the tip if the poster lived in Arizona. Weird story all around.

and yet more stupidity…

I read all the comments on the article and they have one guy that reports rso if they don’t have stat 99 really this guy needs to be educated

The day is coming, possibly already here when reporting anybody even suspected of being registered or a sex offender give one a sense of community pride, almost national pride…somewhat similar to the mid to late 1930’s in Germany…let’s report our good neighbors, the Jews!

The fact that rc can’t view there own profile on megans law to check for errors is unbelievable.

Even though they are deceptively using an RSO as their posterboy for this, they are asking for others to report suspicious activity that they suspect is a sex crime, which 19 out of 20 times will be committed by a non-registrant. This doesn’t sound like a bad thing except that using the term ‘sex offender’ implies this is about registered sex offenders, when 95% of the time it is not.
