A sex offender, who spent 11 years in a court-ordered treatment program to rehabilitate him, is looking for a relationship via Facebook.

Facebook is approaching the 500 million member mark worldwide. Chances are there are a few sex offenders in there somewhere. I’d guess anywhere between 1 and 3 percent have a penchant for violating another persons sanctity. Statistically out of the 300 million people in the U.S., there are 500,000 registered sex offenders. Of those registered, thousands more aren’t and many haven’t been caught. You do the math.

He’s 29, so he was in detention since he was 18. His mom must be proud. He was found guilty of sexually assaulting girls. If I was one of the girl’s dads I’d be “friending” this dude to know what he is up to.

He has now set up a Facebook page, with a picture of pop singer Pink, in a bid to date women. Sounds like a real interesting guy.

The Herald Sun pointed out that 3 of his 12 online friends have profile photographs on his page which include children. Just ducky.

Be careful who you friend. They really are out there. Living breathing whacky predators.
