Oh good the law makers in south Carolina are just as ill informed as law makers in every other state where similar laws are on the books. Love how the stipulation is former sex offender as opposed to current sex offender? Granted current sex offenders have not been caught so forbidding them might be difficult, though that would be a worthwhile effort in making sure social media doesn’t get used to commit sex offenses or any illegal activities.

Wonder when the last time “a former sex offender” got a victim off of a social media site? Must happen all the time!!! (sarcasm intended)

I wonder the last time someone underage became an in person victim because of a social media site contact. That must also be common….because logic?!?

Outstanding article. This needs to be read and comprehended by every person in America. Hopefully, other media outlets will perform their own investigation and report the truth. Not holding my breath.

Maybe puritanical America never faded away, instead people afraid of the new and different still fantasize about witches snatching up their children.

Best article I have read in a while. Everybody should read this.
