UT: New Twist on the Sex-Offender Registry: Financial Crime

States have taken the idea of the sex-offender registry and applied it to everything from kidnapping to animal abuse. Utah is expanding it into new territory: financial crime.

An early version of the White Collar Crime Offender Registry, which has been online since February, includes more than 100 people convicted of tax, credit-card or insurance fraud; thefts from employers or friends; and bilking investors.

They include 41-year-old ____ ____ ____. “Eye Color: Blue. Hair Color: Blonde … Targets: Insurance company.” Full Article (WSJ – may be behind paywall)

In years to come there will be registry’s with millions of people on them, now make one for the corrupt lawmakers, cops, DAs and judges.

Why not just put everyone who has ever committed a crime on the web and make them update their information every year. People lust after knowing all the naughty things their neighbors have done, so let the public wallow in this pornography. Just quit calling it for public safety and call it like it is — voyeurism.

Put in a registry.
Also LAcounty in a year as had corrupt officers convicted. Put on registry.
The ongoing call for fed investigation on oc justice system as well will likely show there are some corrupt courthouse officials.. Put public corruption in a registry.

I feel the more registries the better , at least to help us get lost in the noise . The registration bureaucracy must be made unmanageable hopefully they would try to simplify it by combining all of the registries. Then lost in the noise .

Timmr, I am certainly entertained by your suggestion: a global registry for everyone and every offenses.

Perhaps, as more states create more registries, legal challenges will multiply and be won. Perhaps, one day, Americans will have ….. or perhaps demand with a united voice …. what Europeans already have: a right to be forgotten. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_to_be_forgotten
