Megan’s Law Maps

California’s Megan’s Law web site uses maps to list registered sex offenders. After clicking through the disclaimer, the user selects a county, which brings up a map on which each dot represents a registered offender. Clicking on one of the dots brings up the offender’s details, including the address and offenses. Flagrantdisregard was creeped out by the fact that 18,507 are registered in the Los Angeles area. Me, I’m spooked by the fact that so much is available so easily, but I suppose that’s the point. Via Boing Boing.
