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.”

    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.”
