Nebraska Attorney General Wants Sex Offenders Banned from MySpace, Facebook

In Omaha Nebraska, Attorney General Jon Bruning is proposing a few legislative changes to increase public safety, and this includes cracking down on the presence of sex offenders using online social networking sites, according to MSN. Bruning wants them banned from sites like MySpace and Facebook all together, making their use of such social networks a crime.

This would be pretty difficult to enforce from a legislative standpoint, especially without the cooperation of social networks themselves. The state of Indiana has already banned sex offenders from using social networks, but enforcement is still an issue. And after a slew of threatened and imposed legal action on MySpace, networks (especially MySpace) have found ways in which to work with sate and federal authorities regarding sex offenders that have accounts online.
