Thread: Do you know your neighbors?

  1. Exclamation Do you know your neighbors?

    I got an interesting email today from a friend. It was the link below that is a very informative site. You type in your address and it shows a map with red pins in the immediate area where convicted felons reside. It also shows what their offense was. I tried it and found about 15 living within 5 miles of me! They include convicted rapists, sexual misconduct with a child, false imprisonment, witness intimidation (they were both in their early 20's!), and a few other that I'll just call "persons of interest". Try it and see who lives around you!

    I've been using this program for quite awhile now, and know just how many felons are living in my vicinity, and what they were convicted of. Nice application. I thnik everyone should run this before they buy a house. But you had better believe the realtors won't like it.

    I believe this is the site that is total fabrication. Conduct the same search 10 times and you will get 10 totally different results. It's fun but it's a joke.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

    I DO know one person on the map, where he lives and what he was convicted of. But you're right that if you keep clicking the Search button, the results will change. I'm not sure how the search engine works, or where they're pulling the data from, but it's not totally bogus.

    A site that actually does list sex offenders (although not other criminals) in your neighborhood with conviction information, address, picture, etc.: National Sex Offender Registry

    Ya know, I do Snopes checks all the time, and never did one on this site. Thanks, fellas. It just so happened that I did get a hit on one of my "neighbors" and that was enough to make me think the place was legit. I wonder where they do get their data from? Is it all "made up" or do they actually get some data from the law?

  9. Guess I should have done some better checking before I posted the site.

    Well, yeah! You bet I'm NOT going to tell anyone where to find a sex offender, or a felon. I'm a former Realtor from California. No Realtor in their right minds, Kalifornia or elsewhere, wants to take on this responsibility and then get sued when a site like this turns out be bogus, maybe, or sued for invading someone's privacy, or for what ever other reason someone thinks up for a law suit. What we ARE/WERE required to do is to let our clients know that they have the right to research this themselves. Too bad, though, that I never had a client do the research on their own and come back and tell me what they found. I'm not surprised, just sad!

    BTW, only sex offenders are required to register in California under Megan's Law. No other felons are required to register in that state, as far as I know. Do other convicted felons have to register in other states, areas?
