I had this app, when I lived at my last apartment- There were domestic violence calls weekly to the apartment above me, and 3 registered sex offenders in my building alone. When you zoomed out, on the side streets surrounding and in my complex there were thousands and thousands of multi-colored dots. It was insane. We didn’t live there very long lol.

I agree… I don’t think that a 18 year old having consensual sex with a 17 year old should should be put on the same level as an 18 year old raping a child.

Umm… maybe I shouldn’t have download this app! I am going to be a mes now….holy crap lots of red dots!!!
Isn’t there a law saying sex offenders can’t live within so many miles of a school? Maybe I will move by one of those! LOL

Well then I don’t know what you’re complaining about. This topic is about the US Sex Offender Registry which is different from the Australian one. If you don’t know how it works, not sure what you’re “arguing” about. I wasn’t arguing with you anyway, I was trying to educate you on the US laws since you said you didn’t know about them. Australia doesn’t have a sex offender registry, it has a child offender registry. And, I don’t even think it’s public.

So my original point was that I don’t like the concept of the app. There are actually a number of public sex offender registries in Australia, although none of them are official, or regulated by the government, except the Child Offender Registry, which is not public. And it is possible to make the unofficial listings of the publicly available register for peeing in public or whatever.

Ah… they do here. I mean, an 18 YO who has consensual sex with a 15 YO is a rapist. They may not go to prison (in fact, it would be highly unlikely they would go to prison), but they will have to register as a sex offender. That said, the registry is not public, for very good reasons IMO.

Why are there so many red dots in my area? I thought it was a perfectly safe neighborhood to live in. It is interesting how you don’t even think there are so many potentially dangerous people around you until you actually start inquiring and then it’s like whoa maybe I should stay home from now on.

When we were buying our home I looked up our area online, thankfully there’s only one guy and he’s a ways away. And yes, you can see what the offenses are, along with the person’s photo, age, etc.
