Hi,

Unfortunately we live in a world where there are some who want to cause harm - sometimes very serious harm. While we do enjoy a lower crime rate than the south side of Chicago, we do have criminals in the area who would not think twice about hurting the ones we should protect - our children.

So, why would anyone post so many photos of the their family on the Statesboro Herald community pages for all to see? It's a risky proposition. You are trading a few conveniences over safety.

For one, the photos can be viewed by anyone for free and without a username. No additional website to remember either. This is where the threat lies.

To post with their name attached (as opposed to a more anonymous username) can only throw an unwarranted item into the mix.

I am glad no harm has come to the people involved. I hope it stays that way too.

Should we not be more proactive? While the Herald may not be liable for any harm done as a result of the postings, we as members of the community should practice better security control while interacting with the Herald.

I say all of this as a previous graduate of the Statesboro Citizens Police Academy, a current criminal justice & sociology student at Georgia Southern, and someone with over 30+ years in the information technology field.

There are alternative websites where a person can manage the list of authorized viewers for themselves. They will allow you to control who can view the photos - and who can't.

Now, Walkie is wondering why a family member or friend has not worked with a few individuals about the items I have mentioned here. If this sparks a debate, so be it. It has been said in love for my fellow humanity.

Post what and where as you see fit. Just take an additional moment to be careful about it. That is all I am saying here.

And to think...
September 13, 2014
The sports season is still young and anything can happen later on. However, knowing there are some people around here that think the move to the Sun Belt Conference and the FBS was a bad decision...leaves Walkie speechless. I'm just not talking football. The other GSU sports teams are doing ...

As I am typing these words, I am listening to a CD containing music from the lady of 6000 songs. Do you have a favorite song you would like to mention? I must say two of mine are "Pardon my southern accent, pardon my southern drawl,..." and the timeless classic ...

Kingston vs Perdue
July 14, 2014
Hi, I wonder if the Statesboro Herald is biased towards Jack Kingston. http://www.statesboroherald.com/section/1/article/61760/ The photos used in the article says it all. Jack Kingston is shown in a much brighter photo than David Perdue. Or is it a case of the Perdue campaign showing its dark side? If I were ...

The garden fountain
March 06, 2014
Hi, As I was sitting next to the garden fountain in a certain famous restaurant on South Main, I wondered where the stuffed parrots were in the trees. Wouldn't it be nice to see stuffed birds in the garden along with sounds of a tropical rain forest - or the ...
