Pol Wants Sex Offender Online Identies

The Boston Herald is reporting that there is pending legislation that would force sex offenders to reveal their online identities such as Facebook, Twitter handles etc. According to the herald:

 Under the bill, Level 3 sex offenders would have to report all their electronic monikers — including Facebook names, blogs and message-board screen names — just as they do their home addresses. The legislation has 12 co-sponsors and could get a hearing after lawmakers return from their August break.

This is a long overdue logical next step in the refinement of the state sex offender registry under G.L. ch. 6 sect 178. It wasn’t long ago that Myspace was found to have 90,000 sex offenders lurking around. Anyone wishing to contact the Legislature to show support can contact State Representative Tackey Chan who is supporting the legislation, or their own State rep.
