RateMyPerp.com Draws Criminals' Wrath
LOS ANGELES, CA - 24 March 2008 (Denounce Newswire) - A new Web site is prompting outrage among many criminals.
RateMyPerp.com lists criminals' names -- some 1,400,000 and counting -- as well as the driver's license numbers and home addresses of many of them, and lets certain people, including law enforcement and victims, rate them.
That, say many criminals, violates their rights, in part because there's little or no -- policing -- by the site of the information posted on it.
Registered users of RateMyPerp.com can search for criminals by name, crime, or state, provide comments, and rate them based on numerous criteria including taser vulnerability, driving skill, and crime smarts.
To be a registered user, you must either be a confirmed victim of a crime, or, a authorized police officer, judge, marshall, sheriff, or other law enforcement officer in one of the 50 U.S. states.
The site also offers rich social networking features, including the ability to make friends and rate each others' "collars". There's also PerpChirp, a real-time Google Maps tool which lets you see exactly where your perps affixed with radio-signal ankle bracelets are. PerpWalk is another Google Maps tool which lets you see when and where your perps will be leaving courthouses to walk into their awaiting squad cars, or limousines.
Criminals plan to shut down the site, but it is unlikely they'll be able to with the law not on their side.
