  • Three were dead and there was nothing in the system to automatically notify any of the law enforcement/Probation/Parole authorities? “Wow”…

  • More government sanctioned harassment. Stop wasting money on laws that don’t do crap to protect anyone from anything.

  • How can we have info without names??

  • Honeydew Bridge Chump

    This is good.

    Many countu

  • Terry makes a good point. I’m not sure I’d call it good… the bare minimum is more like it. You can’t keep track of the counties serial rapists??

    I wonder how many open sexual assault cases are either collecting dust or have been dropped to some misdemeanor forever resting in manilla on a rusted shelf.. It’s prevalent nationwide. But this is actual police detective work= retroactive investigation of heinous crimes. This work takes time and know how the average homeless man pocket picking beat cop hasn’t a clue about.

    My childhood dream was to be a police officer. A peace officer. To serve and protect. That ended when I learned how most spend their time…

    Have we won the “war on drug addicts” yet?

    I’m curious as to what you mean WC? Time wasted? Indeed it could be better spent adressing the issue no one wants to address= blossoming sexual predators… why and what to do to help prevent the next victim…..


  • It`s interesting to peruse the short list of these perverts. It seems most of them have rubbery facial features. Perhaps some genetic defect?

    What exactly does it take to get classed as a perv? Is urinating in the bushes or behind a dumpster considered and act of perversion? I most fervently hope it`s not or I`m in danger of being locked up for the next 400 years.

  • I’d worry about the 35 they can’t find!!!!
