Public Crime Registries Rarely Work, So Why Do They Continue to Grow?

____ ____ says he’s a changed man. After spending 25 years in jail for killing a man during a home invasion, ____ is looking for a second chance: “I’m not in the lifestyle I used to be in. I don’t drink. I don’t do drugs. I’m just trying to build something up before it’s too late. I’m 55 years old and I don’t have social security, retirement, or a pension.”

While it’s difficult for most ex-felons to reintegrate into society, ____’s road is particularly tough. That’s because he is required to enroll onto a registry that is, in theory, supposed to keep communities safe. But research shows that, in reality, those registries act as one more shackle around the hands of those trying to re-enter society — heightening risk factors that criminologists say only up the chances that an ex-offender will turn to criminal activity again.

These Wicked Usurping Servants are just getting started.

“While Illinois lawmakers may be the most zealous employers of public registries — the state also maintains an online list of those convicted of making methamphetamine — the state is far from alone.

Oklahoma also has a violent crime registry similar to Illinois’ and

Kansas has a meth registry like Illinois’.

Indiana, Kansas, and Montana still have combined sex and violent offender registries.

Florida, on the other hand, makes folks convicted of three violent felonies sign up for a public registry.

Tennessee also had a meth registry, before expanding it into a much more encompassing drug offender registry. And among the more original uses, Tennessee also has an animal abuser registry and

Utah recently launched a registry for people convicted of certain white-collar crimes.”
