Posting The Location Of Convicted Sexual Offender Homes Online

With the increase in kidnappings, city officials in different California cities have begun posting the general location of sex offenders’ homes on the Internet in a “Regional Sex Offender Pin Map.” The posting of this information could raise privacy concerns as well as other constitutional concerns. The safety concerns of the public are being balanced with the constitutional concerns of sex offenders.

The following questions have been addressed in this article:

How come more information is not permitted to be on the Internet?
How does this information compare to the database registration of sexual offenders?
