HR 4472 and Family Watchdog
This is for ones that are searching for information on HR4472 and Family Watchdog.US. I wondered why my site meter has been overwhelmed with search results for Take Action America HR 4472 and the free service Family Watchdog or http://www.watchdog.us/ . It is sad but after I did a BLOG search on Google of “HR4472” the only two blogs found was here and Blogs for Fox linking HR4472. I hope everyone places a link to Family Watchdog in their sidebar and supports the bill for Child Safety and Violent Crime Reduction Act of 2005.

Dear Representative and/or Senator:
I am a constituent who is very concerned about the sex offenders who live in my community. Recently, there have been many stories in the news about how the current sex offender registration and notification laws don't work, and need to be changed. I think it's a matter of life and death that you help your fellow lawmakers make this change to protect our children. I urge you to support the provisions of H.R. 4472/ S. 1086 that would create a more comprehensive system for tracking these offenders, and improve the way information is released about these predators to our communities.
Today, there are more than 500,000 sex offenders who are supposed to be registered in the U.S.; however, it's believed that 100,000 of these offenders are 'lost' in the system. We must:
Close the loopholes between state programs, so sex offenders can't move from state to state and elude authorities.
Provide federal and state funding so law enforcement agencies have the resources to track these predators.
Make sure that information about sex offenders is released to all of our communities. Thank you for taking the time to read my views on this issue.
The time is now to tighten the tracking of sex offenders, and provide higher standards for notifying people like myself and my neighbors. I don't want one more person who's been convicted of sex crimes to be able to hide from our community and law enforcement, and prey upon our children.
