Doubles as a handy sitter locator too. It's cheaper than paying them.

Article doesn't state that the app costs money. Granted, it only costs $0.99, but the information is free online. The free version is severely limited

That Megan's Law website required too much effort?
 
2009-07-28 10:18:03 AM  
so does it also locate the offender's whose only offense is pissing in an alley?
 
2009-07-28 10:19:14 AM  
Doesn't matter that the info is free online--you KNOW some helicopter parents are going to download this and use it wherever they go.

"Okay, Sally--we'll go in to the fair in a minute. I just want to see if any bad men live near here."

I want an app that locates vulnerable children.

I was wanting an app that locates narcissistic parents, but then I realized that already exists in the form of "Baby on Board" signs on cars.

To be fair, I'd be willing to bet a good chunk of sex offender registry site hits are from people curious to see if any live around them/if they went to school with any, etc....

I truly don't think it's any of my business whether or not there are sex offenders living near me.

Sex offender registries are complete bullshiat.
There is a huge difference between someone who diddles children, and some asshat who got caught mooning someone at 18.

There's nothing wrong with laws that punish stupid people.

Sounds pretty cool. How do I get on this registry?
 
2009-07-28 01:48:34 PM  
Does it list their turn-ons and turnoffs?
 
2009-07-28 01:49:27 PM  
My girlfriend called me a pedopphile.

I told her that was a big word for a 12 year old.

Hollywood Cole: so does it also locate the offender's whose only offense is pissing in an alley?


I wondered about this as well.
I certainly wouldn't want them or teenagers who text naked photos in MY neighborhood.
"Sex offender" has turned into another witch hunt and money making enterprise.
 
2009-07-28 01:51:21 PM  
Now this app, it doesn't come in a .pdf file does it?
I now see that we are getting into the territory of thinking that a pedofile could swoop in any moment, snatching away your kids in a lustful rage.

Rather than, you know, being your uncle Ernie.

The number one cause for pedophilia in America is sexy children.

What we need to do is track down the sexy children & teach them all a lesson.
 
2009-07-28 01:52:30 PM  
I'm waiting for the pedometer.

Someone beat Drew to creating the Fark Party ap.
 
2009-07-28 01:53:29 PM  
Great, now you too can harass people who got drunk and urinated in public as if they were homicidal pedophiles and rapists.

The sex offender database is a joke and a bad one.
 
2009-07-28 01:53:40 PM  
But I like offensive sex.

It's not just that reason the registries are utterly useless. It's because the majority of victims knew their attackers. Very few children are actually molested by total strangers--it's usually the babysitter/boyfriend/family member/family friend that is the culprit.

Also, just because the registry tells me there's a sex offender living 3 miles away from me won't stop him from driving to Philly to find another victim. Does anyone actually think the Philly cops are going to do a 75-mile radius sweep of all known sex offenders?

Megain: not all sex offender are pedophiles


Agreed. Most are just your run-of-the-mill types who go after adult women.

I have been tempted to remind the busybody housewives who show up to my HOA board meetings about this fact on numerous occasions. However, they still haven't gotten past the time when I told them that most sexual assaults against children are not done by strangers, but rather, by friends and family. Such as the child's uncle or father.

Wouldn't an IPEDO App be something along the lines of a school or daycare locator?

I read that as iPedro and thought it was an app to find Mexican food. I was disappointed to find out it wasn't.

There's probably Meetup groups already for those.

I use it to find freaky women.

This one kinda looks like that chick from Dexter (his sister).

Bah, if you are going to quote Emo, do it right;

"I was lying in bed with my girlfriend last night and she said to me, 'Emo, you're a pervert,' and I looked at her and I said, 'That's an awfully big word for a girl of nine.'"

/"Women, can't live with them, can't get them to dress up in skimpy little Nazi costume and beat you with warm squash or whatever. . ."

I recall a case last year or so in California where a masterpedomind was using the system to get "contacts" and "tips" from other pedos.

I want an app called; Find-A-Ho. Now that would be worth 99 cents.

Don't the sites also mention what crimes the offender committed?

Can we get this app with the "Motion Detector" sound effects from Aliens? I want to freak out, screaming, as my iPhone tells me, "40 yards to pedophile...35...30 YARDS TO PEDOPHILE!!!"
 
2009-07-28 01:59:20 PM  
Sweet, I can have a date every weekend with that app!
