Are there any perverts among the neighbors?

  It stands to reason that in the 21st century of globalization, there is nothing more important than personal privacy. Not to mention that women’s age is top-secret data, and even the salaries of older men cannot be asked these days. But in the United States, there is a website called “mapsexoffenders”, which will scare you when you open it-“Protect your family from perverts. There are more than 300,000 sexual offenders across the country. Click here to check you out. How many hooligans live in the community”…
  It turns out that this is the latest service launched by a company in Orbizon, Utah, USA. Using Google maps technology, you can find out in a few seconds whether anyone in your community has been convicted of sexual assault. After torture, all the addresses where these people live will show a small flag on the map. If you continue to click on the small flag, it will show the person’s further information like a police station’s file, including the exact photo, address, name and other personal information.
  Maybe everyone has a question. How can the United States, which attaches so much importance to privacy and promotes human rights, can publish this information? Is there a legal basis for the US to publicize hooligans?
  Of course there is, but it’s a long story. On July 29, 1994, Megan Nicole Kanka, a 7-year-old girl from Hamilton Town in the suburbs of New Jersey, went to play with a child from the neighbor’s house across the street. Jesse Timmendequas (Jesse Timmendequas) walked over and invited Megan to his house to see his new puppy. After Megan entered the house, Timan de Quaz violently raped her and strangled her to death. Megan’s mother later said: “We found out after searching Megan all night that our neighbor, Timande Quaz, across the street, raped and killed her. We also learned that Timande Quaz twice He was found guilty of sexual assault on children by the court, and the two men who lived with him also guilty of sexual assault on children. We have lived in this neighborhood for 15 years and are no strangers to the situation here, but only learned about the street afterwards. There is such a dangerous person on the opposite side, which makes us extremely sad.” The Megan case caused a huge response in the United States.
  New Jersey soon passed the “Megan’s Law” named after her. This law requires law enforcement agencies to disclose and notify the residences of persons convicted of sexually assaulting children, and classify them according to the degree of risk. The lighter ones should inform the school and the community, and the more serious ones should inform their neighborhood. In 1996, the U.S. Congress passed the Megan Act on the basis of the laws of the State of New Jersey and was signed by President Clinton as a national federal law. The federal law authorizes the state councils to pass laws requiring convicted sex offenders to register with local law enforcement agencies after they are released, and at the same time require relevant parties to disclose the registration of these offenders to the public. After that, 50 states across the United States were required to register sex offenders and notify the community. The specific provisions of the states based on the federal Megan Act are different, but the practice of disclosing the status of persons who have committed sexual crimes is the same. Some states classify the level of risk of sex offenders and determine who in the public should be notified of the sex offender’s residence based on the level of risk. In some states, police departments have set up sex offender files for the public to find on their own. Other states publish the names, photos, and addresses of offenders on the Internet.
  There are also some weaknesses in the implementation of the Megan Act. One of the major problems is that states have to constantly update the records of such criminals, which requires a lot of manpower. The police should check regularly whether they are still living in the same place. If they have moved, they should investigate their new location and make sure that the people there know their condition. It is for this reason that the mapsexoffenders website came into being, so that every American can easily check whether there are perverts in their neighbors.
