I found great website familywatchdog.us/ that allows you to enter your home address and will show all registered sex offenders in your area. I hope I have not violated a rule by sharing this information - I will delete this if so. I don't have kids but I was shocked when I ran my own address. There was a convicted rapist living less than 1/2 mile from my house. I do believe these people should not be harassed but if you had kids and discovered an "offender" lived two doors down, it would certainly be good to know.
