Once again a person kills a child(s) and all offenders have to pay! Why not just lock him up for life, until he dies, then it would not be a problem. Stop stomping on others rights for the deeds of others!
SACRAMENTO - Registered sex offenders in California would have to report their online social networking accounts to law enforcement, under a bill approved by the state Senate.
Sen. Sharon Runner cites the example of John Albert Gardner, a convicted child molester who pleaded guilty last year to raping and killing two San Diego County teenagers while he was on parole. Runner, a Republican from Lancaster, says a red flag was his MySpace page, which contained graphic descriptions of sex acts.
Her bill, SB57 (PDF), would require offenders to report their online addresses at the same time they report their home addresses, but they could continue to use the websites.
The bill is patterned on similar laws in New York and Illinois. It passed on a 32-2 vote and moves to the Assembly.
