An Attorney General Who Gets It
Impressive piece by Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway here.
Mr. Conway is clearly one of the more technically savvy law enforcement officers in the U.S. He is obviously committed to ensuring that the Kentuck criminal code keeps pace with the new forms anti-social behavior that are enabled by the Internet.
Beyond that, however, Mr. Conway is also investing heavily in educational programs to ensure both parents and minors are aware of some of the risks posed by predators hiding behind the anonymity of the 'net.
Finally, his office maintains a very good web site on safe Internet usage that includes topics such as identity theft, cyberstalking, and even safest way to use the burgeoning social networking sites.
Jack Conway is to be commended for his forward thinking ideas on protecting the citizens of Kentucky. We can only hope the other 49 Attorneys General are watching.
