A lot of people who move here from the Northeast are particularly snotty and rude.

Hi, I'm very curious about how people in small towns/cities (population) with a high percentage of registered sex offenders, feel, living there. Is there a great concern for your welfare or the welfare of your family or do you ever even think about these offenders living amongst you?
My concerns are not of the potentially rude or snotty people of the Northeast but of the sex offenders that lurk about.....anyone with any thoughts about this? What precautions do you take if any and what is your day to day mindset?

Thank you, for any and all replies!

Florida has a very good website that you can go and look up how many are in a specific area: FDLE Florida Sexual Offenders and Predators I think for the most part if you keep a good eye on your children you can avoid a lot of problems. For instance my kids don't walk to and from the bus stop. I wouldn't let them do this no matter what state I lived in or what the circumstances are. They don't hang out at the mall, like many kids do. Again, a little extra supervision goes a long way.

Why move to a place where you have to worry about either one? Dont get we wrong, rude people and sex offenders truly are everywhere, but there are better places to choose than FL if you are trying to limit yourself from being around sex offenders and rude people. FL would probably be on of my last choices when taking those 2 things into consideration.

My point was...I'm less concerned about rude or snotty people than I ever would be about sex offenders, living in the same town. I cringe everytime I see what appears to be a nice town, small population, yet the number of sex offenders living there is astronomical. It also seems to me in these particular areas not much or anything is said in the forums about the high numbers or the presence of these offenders. Do people ignore them?....not know they are there?...don't care?....live and let live???...whats the mindset of most people regarding this?....my girlfriend and I are baffled by the seeming lack of concern expressed. BTW I'm not indicting Florida as the only state where this seems to be the case, there are plenty of others, as well.

Yes, thank you, I'm familiar with that website, as well as, the city data info. and I agree, you have to keep an eye on your children at all times, no matter where you live. Sadly, it appears that women too, for themselves, probably need to be careful at all times, living in these high risk areas.

Awwww, I dont think that's true! I think they are fun loving, humorous, people that like to fish, flirt, party, kayak, bike, play tennis, golf, drink beer, and really look forward to watching the Ravens beat the Colts - TODAY! Oh! And I think they are very handsome too!
