It's sickening to know that the sex offender registry allows offenders to have facebook accounts just as long as they're reported. It just reassures me how messed up this world,state,government really is. Sex offenders should not be placed in areas where families with little children live in and should not be allowed to have access to any sort of social media. They should be isolated from communities that house little children and have 24 hour supervision to monitor what they are doing minute by minute but then again would moron cuomo really supply the money for that sort of safety. None of my children will have facebook accounts while they're younger than 17.
