I’m torn on how I feel about Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox. On the one hand, he was one of only 10 AGs who didn’t sign the agreement with craigslist about their new safeguards to prevent illegal activity in the erotic services section. He’s also a heavy critic of craigslist having no links to law enforcement websites if their users need to report a crime. On those fronts, he has my utmost respect.
But like I’ve said repeatedly, Attorneys General won’t criticize parents because parents are the voters.
My advice to parents about craigslist is the same about MySpace, educate yourself about your kids’ internet use. Know what sites they frequent.
I do have to add that, of course, no one from craigslist responded to AG Cox’s office or the Detroit News. Typical for craigslist.
