A friend of mine a while back moved to a different place in the county that I live in. She was telling me how she got online to our state's official police website and searched the database for registered sex offenders/child molesters....there were 5 or 6 in her community! 1 of which lived right up the road from her!!! I thought that was very scary information, and therefore did some of my own research. I got on and searched in MY little community....there are 5 that they had registered on the website, with all their information, including their picture, address, date of birth, and what they were charged with. That is CRAZY!!!! Most of them live right down the road from me, and I would have had no clue otherwise. Basically, all I'm saying is, it's scary stuff, but it's useful to know. I'm sure a lot of you will be taking your little ones trick-or-treating this halloween (I am taking my 2 year old as well) and I urge all of you to do your own research. Nothing may ever come from it, but it's still good to know, just in case. There are a lot of crazy people out there, and we never know what may happen. I just wanted to let you guys know....the way things are nowadays, one can never be too safe.
Note: If you don't know your state's official police site, just search for it on yahoo. Just type in "*your state* sex offender registry" and it should come up. If any of you live in Kentucky, here is the URL: http://www.kentuckystatepolice.org/sor.h
