Clarification needed for predator statistics

Dear Editor,

In your predator article on p.7 of the Dec. 27, 2013 issue of the Pleasanton Weekly, you stated that Pleasanton has the fewest predators per capita in Alameda County (32 total: 28 on Megan's List + 4 for police eyes only). I checked the Megan's Law website, and I only found 22 names listed. Also, I found that Dublin only has 8; Danville has 4; and San Ramon 10. I think these figures are more telling than stating that Pleasanton has the lowest per capita rate. Knowing the figures of the cities close to us, or cities we compare Pleasanton to, gives a whole different interpretation to the data you provided. With Dublin's population of almost 49,000 and Pleasanton's just over 72,000, I can only conclude that either Dublin must have a large amount of predators whose info can only be seen by the police or your figures are off. Maybe some clarification would help.
