Reply To: Pokemon Go and sex offenders

Great, another needless law brought to you by New York State. This is reminiscent of the infamous Operation “Game Over” where New York banned the online gaming accounts of thousands of sex offenders. Which by the way are easy to monitor…Now the majority of these folks just created prepaid accounts that cannot be monitored! How does Banning a sex offender from simply playing the game stop these randomly generated Pokemon characters from popping up in proximity to their residences? S.O.’s are already restricted from unnaproved contact with minors/children… This makes a new crime out of thin air and does nothing to keep kids safe.
