I guess this is a good idea on paper. Sadly just like any other registry it won’t do anything to prevent future abuse. All it does is give prying eyes and worry warts more ammunition which in turn will cause more damage than it prevents.

Soooo… when is the DUI list going to happen?

While I’m totally against any sort of registry other then a registry for law enforcement only. I have said since day one if I have to register for my crime after serving my sentence and probation then every criminal should have to register. It could be a good thing as more registries come out then there has the potential for more backlash, maybe.

In Orange County about three years ago a registry for dogs that were deemed aggressive and dangerous was being considered but Orange County Supervisor Janet Nguyen (now Senator Nguyen)) harshly opposed such a registry as being inhumane. She’s a dog lover but lover of people? Not so…at least not those that have otherwise paid their debt to society. To her it’s somehow not inhumane to put people on a registry.

When we get a DUI Registry, I wonder how our lawmakers are going to make exceptions for them to be listed. Or will they vote in registries for everything but DUI convictions.

I think we should start anonymously pushing for DUI registries to MADD and representatives.

IF I were a SO in Tennessee and a gov’t agents came to your door looking for the boy missing in this story:

Then I would sue those state and federal agents for harassment because they not only hassled you for something you had nothing to do with but demanded unreasonable search of your home an property without probable cause.
