    Perhaps it would just be easier to put all criminal history files on the internet.....

    At least now I'll know who to go to when I need a fix @_@


    ...seriously tho, not all criminals need free advertising for their deeds.
    If they have no constitutional rights once convicted then just leave them in jail, hang em or escourt them out the country. I dont think we should be picking and choosing with the bill of rights, have all or have none.

    Telling me "we couldnt lock him up but we'll put his name on the internet to warn you!" does not help.

    This is the dumbest idea ever!!! No one wants their children to be molested!

    A whole lot of people want to take drugs

    Offering tax payer assured marketing and advertisement is a very bad idea.

    Mr. White,

    I agree with your sentiments. Along the same lines may I ask just what has been any result of Internet databases of Sex Offenders?

    My concern with putting all criminal history files on the internet is :

    1) Matter of Control, too easily used by Tyranny.

    2) Leading to gun control and abuse further of our Rights.

    Please forgive me for referencing our Sister Site TFL, I feel this thread is by Antipitas is not only related, just too important to not be read by members here that have not seen it.

    My concerns with Database?

    North Little Rock First To Test Meth Deterrent

    http://www.kthv.com/news/search/resu...?storyid=24729

    --

    Just as if one might be wrongfully / mistakeningly put on a Sex offender Database for touching a child without permission - as some jurisprudence may define - which if an adult grabbed the arm of a child without persmission to pull them out of the path of a motor vehicle 'technically' would fall under this definition.

    What if a Parent bought Sudaphed, only though the Drug store only had one box left - snotty nose season with kids... so down the street buys another one or "up to the limit" of said jurisdiction (whatever applicable) and - however it happens, the incorrect amount is entered at either drug store.

    RED Flagged, and now 'technically' defined under jurisprudence is now put onto a Internet Meth List.

    This opening the door just a wee bit could also lead to the database being used to make note if a person buys Sudaphed, a box of kitchen matches, Lantern fuel for a Lantern, cookstove...The database does not know if the person is a Meth cooker, or someone with sinus woes getting ready to go camping for the weekend.

    Antipitas in my opinion is correct in regard to how these mindsets , laws, and abuse could simply be used for Gun Control or any control of our Rights.

    The Computer does not know, one writes the program, enters data, output is what the program is designed to output.

    Regards,

    Steve

    Steve,
    I was being sarcastic. I think this is a dumb idea and I don't see how it will do anything to help. I was merely commenting on the fact that our legislators in their haste to be seen as doing something, are coming up with this stupidity. I can think of some other really stupid laws I've come across lately, but that's a topic for a different thread.

    Mr. White,

    I understand being sarcastic *grin*

    We are on the same page, the snip quoted from your post - is exactly what goes on , be it Meth, Sexual Offenders, Evil Black rifles, .50 cal...etc.

    I know, let us blame FEMA...NOLA is. ;)

    Yeah, this is free advertising for meth suppliers. I'm only in favor of it if they give a percentage of sales back to the state for providing this service!

    OK I'll take an alternate view here. Jeff when you take in the toxic fume issue for the neiborhood is it such a dumb idea? How about the person that wants to rent or buy the house next? Maybe it should not be so easy to access but having them in a register that can be accessed for a legitiment reason is not IMHO that bad.

    How many of us have actually read the sex offender lists?
    How many are going to keep reading the meth-criminal list every week, or go about running background checks on all of our neighbors?
    How many can even name every person living within a 5 mile radius?

    Failing to lock a dangerous criminal behind bars while quietly posting his name on a website does not help me!. At that, people still have a right to privacy and a sometimes also second chance in life.

    If you feel the system does not punish them enough, increase the punishment.
    Ignoring the constitution for a smidgen more security is something thats bound to backfire in the long run.

    I think we should do this for prostitution too. Post pictures of the girls and list where they're commonly found. I bet it will shame them into quitting. :evil:

    Lock these meth freaks up, but don't make a registry of them. Doing that, will tell people where to go to get their meth. Anyhow, I generally support making court records (criminal, civil, warrants, etc...) accessible over the internet. Just, I don't think this is a good idea. Sorta says "GET METH HERE"
