TN: Tennessee becomes first state to release animal abuse registry

    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?

      Right????

      My guess is more people by far are injured and/or killed by drunk drivers than by SOs. Guessing same holds true for gangs members. So why not have a registry and fancy website for them as well? How about the people that are convicted of swindling little old ladies out of their retirement/savings?

      Shouldn’t all criminals deserve a chance at the spotlight? All with an opportunity to have their pictures taken every year, listing their address for everybody to see, putting them and their families in danger. Makes sense for sure.

      I know…how about a registry for all law enforcement individuals that have been caught lying on a police report that resulted in somebody going to jail? I like the sound of that one. A registry for corrupt politicians would also be cool.

    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.

      The link above doesn’t mention Supervisor Janet Nguyen’s remarks regarding the subject. It’s odd because she was the strongest voice in opposition. Supervisor Todd Spitzer was the strongest voice in favor…

    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.
