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.

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. 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 ...
