Sexual Offenders

I’m living paycheck to paycheck right now so I really don’t have any money to be going out at night. Instead I was so bored this evening after work, I just decided to do a random sexual offender search for my neighborhood. I went to familywatchdog.us and conducted a search for my neighborhood, in Gramercy. I’ve heard this is one of the safest neighborhoods in the city, and quite honestly, not that many sexual offenders came up. I think within like a 15 block radius, there were something like 4 offenders. I did the same for my parents home in Toledo Ohio about a year ago, and there were like 50 within the suburb that I live in.

It said something like 848 offenders are able to be located on the map in the NYC area, but I wonder how many registered sex offenders there actually are in the city? I really have no idea why I randomly decided to do this, I think I’m just becoming way too ridiculously bored these past few days…

    This website must be circulating in the last few days. A coworker sent it and I put in my address and somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 offenders popped up. Some had questionable convictions (attempting to disseminate inappropriate material to a minor? That’s ambiguous) but there were several with rather dangerous charges.
    Guess they all like my neighborhood (which IS in Manhattan).
