MySpace.com to provide state attorneys general with data on registered sex offenders

MySpace.com will provide a number of state attorneys general with data on registered sex offenders who use the popular social networking Web site.

Attorneys general from eight U.S. states demanded last week that the company provide data on how many registered sex offenders are using the site and where they live. MySpace initially refused, citing federal privacy laws.

MySpace obtained the data from Sentinel Tech Holding Corp., which the company partnered with in December to build a database with information on sex offenders.

MySpace, owned by media conglomerate News Corp., said it had always planned to share the Sentinel data with law enforcement, adding it has already deleted the online profiles of sex offenders identified by the system.

Attorneys general in North Carolina, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Ohio and Pennsylvania asked for the Sentinel data last week.

Cooper's office said in a statement the information could potentially be used to look for parole violations or help in investigations.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
