Myspace is a good and bad in my opinoin Good because it's a good place to get in touch with old friends and present I have one of my own Bad for kids they can be very easily talked into things I have an 11 yr. old that asked me the other day if she could have one I said NO I can't protect her from everything but there are some things that I can protect her from. Not to mention most of the kids on there lie about their age.

Myspace is no good for kids for reasons that were already stated. It is good for police though. You would be surprised at how many idiots confess right on their myspace page. I have even seen a video someone put up of him and some friends beating someone up. Thanks for handing over the evidence.

TJB is correct and Navydennis hit a very important point. MySpace can be very dangerous for those that use it and place so much personal information there. I would never recommend do this, especially a child.

you have to realize that posting that among officers will result in negative feedback. Not b/c they are mean, but because they are adults who know what is right or wrong. We all don't want to see anything happen to a young person as a result of myspace.

You should remove your profile from myspace ASAP.

Like everything in this world it is how you use it. MYSPACE is not nessisarily bad it can be good if you use it for the right reasons, like mine for example: my profile is set to privite and i know every single person that is my friend. i use it to keep in touch or "in the loop" so to speak....for that reason it is good.

ON THE OTHER HAND if you are a myspace freak, then yes it is bad, i have seen where peole have 300 friends and i know they don't know all those people. thats when it gets scary. but just remember it is a different way of expressing yourself. Some people like that.

Oh yeah and NAVYDENNIS good luck on ever getting a site like that shut down, when so many people like it and use it, might as well not complain about shutting it down, its not going to do anything!

Just remember.....it is how you use it that makes it dangeous or not....don't let the retards spoil it for the people that enjoy it and use it correctly!

I agree, just like in anything in life, that it's how it's used. There will always be pieces of scum that will abuse something that could be absolutely harmless in order to get their jollies off. But if someone uses it responsibly I see no problem with it. For example: I have a myspace page, I'm a member of a couple law enforcement groups (and have had some great conversations in the forums over myspace), and I actively use my page. I work high school staff at my church, and so I write a weekly blog (I'm on week 37) on the things that I've been learning from the high schoolers, learning about the process of applying to different law enforcement departments, learning about myself, and most importantly what I've been learning through scripture. I know that when I applied to a couple departments they went on my page (I saw a printout of my page in my investigator's notebook), but they had no problems with my stuff because of what my goal is in posting. So use responsibly and there's no problem (in my opinion).

Agree... There is nothing wrong with MySpace its all in how you use it. There are codes and ways to block people who you don’t want to share your profile with. Personally on mine you have to be a friend to view my profile. Then when you are able to see my profile you can’t even see who my friends are or how many I have. NOT too mention my phone number, address, city and my real name is not on there either... So it’s all about how you conduct your page...

Also this website is really no different and I have seen many people with their real names on here... All it takes is a Google search and you can have peoples address. SO my advice to those who have their real name posted drop you city and use an alias for your name...

Good morning
My personal opinion is that good people can use any tool, Internet, Web sites like my space. to do good and make a difference
On the other hand
Stupid People do stupid things, the worst stupid thing is that they think they can get away with it.
Police can and does make a difference, as some do really spill all on there. Good way to catch perps.

I personally do not have a site on MY SPACE

I changed my profile to private, but I am still accepting applications for personal friends. :)

I followed Chaplain Keppy good advice on the family forum, I am trying to find out my new ( improved personality)

Friends

We've also noticed people posting pictures of themselves with guns/knives/ etc. These are good pics to print out and put on the briefing board in the squad room.

I have been able to use myspace to find friends that I grew up with overseas, which is what the site should be used for, finding old friends (my page is set to private). It has also helped me in numerous investigations. BUT, it is also a tool for pedofiles. You have to be careful using ANY site.

lol @ angel... When you work with kids and they are talking about sex your best bet is to find out who they are talking too and what they are up too. The school I cross for I taught the principle how to use it and we monitor what the kids are doing to keep them safe. There’s a differences when we adults have to get on there to see what our youth is doing or catch the bad guys who plot to hurt others... About 4 months back there was a polite to jump some kid and curb him. Will guess what it happen and this child is still in the hospital they had to repair his face and when medical help came they couldn’t really do CPR on him because his body was like mush... SO yes there’s a place and a time for everything...

I don't want to grow up I'm a toys r us kid.... =>

You can also use myspace for gang identification. Go to the search page and type in crip, blood or whatever gangs you have in your area, then the box beside the search area it gives you an option to search within so many miles of your zip code. Enteryour zip and how many miles within it you want to search and hit enter. It will pull up alot of gang members in your area, mostly teenagers, but some adults. this works good for school resorce officers but could help all police. There was this teenager out here who was causing some problems where im from, but we could never get him mon anything. He claimed neighborhood crip rollin 60's. I got bored one day and typed in neighborhood crip and guess what, his picture showed up. I checked all his pictures and found one of him holding a shotgun in one hand, and a 1year old baby in the other, he had the baby holding what looked like a ruger hand gun and had the baby dressed in baby blue with a baby blue rag on her head. Me, the police and child welfare had a hayday with that one.

MySpace is wonderful gang identifiers. They love to show their colors and handsigns for the camera. They are even stupid enough to brag about crimes they have committed. We have a few "self-proclaimed" rappers in our city that have put some of their songs on their site. These songs actually name crimes, when they happened, and who all was there. DUH! They used street names, but were able to figure those out also. You can find out a lot about a person in their MySpace. Yes I have one, but a fake one that I use to check profiles on the kids in my city. I've seen nothing good come from this website.

I personally think my space is a great thing to have!! As a matter of fact you can check out mine and some of the accidents that I have worked in the past @ www.myspace.com/parkcity3 !!!!!! This site shows a little bit about what we do at the FD. Not everyone on myspace is a criminal or wants to commit criminal acts. I do agree that there are some sick twisted individuals out there that feed off of young kids and teens.. I guess its all how ya look at things..

Pro's and Cons...internet predators are constantly seeking out potentials. But, I do like it for helping locate people or gaining info for investigations. People put so much about themselves out there. Could be dangerous.

It's all in how it is used. I think of the saying "It not guns that kill people, it is the idiot holding the gun that kills people."
