NC: Animal abusers could appear on registry — like sex offenders in North Carolina

[ – 7/10/19]

RALEIGH, N..C — A new bill introduced in the North Carolina legislature would require the names and photos of convicted animal abusers to appear in an online registry for at least two years.

The legislation is called the North Carolina Animal Abuser Registry Act and it was introduced by North Carolina state Sens. Floyd McKissick, a Democrat, and Danny Britt, a Republican.

First-time offenders would be put on the registry “for two years following the date of conviction.” After two years, the individual would be removed from the list.

“If you are a second offender, you have to actually go out there and be convicted in court, then your image would stay up there for up to five years,” McKissick said. “In the event of a second event, you would not be able to own any type of pet.”

    Expanding electronic blacklists. Naturally the ever so popular trend will continue to envelop many. The result will naturally flow into affirmative restraints. For housing, job the whole bit.
    Hereby banished from dog parks, or restrained to 500ft.

    Another big waste of government money (aka taxpayers)… # 1 NO ONE is EVER GOING TO look at this website unless you currently have a animal and are suspected of abusing it. and # 2 according to the article its to bring awareness that its illegal… DOH ! People should already know this if they have half a brain ! Shame on the jackass making a registry… Maybe something a little more usefull… like a murder registry ? or a residential burglar registry ? Maybe a paroled murderer registry ?

    Now when Our pet dies of a natural event we have to worry about being investigated that we caused a pet to have a heart attack and become a registered animal abuser ?

      Big gov indeed, bolstered and supported by agents of big data enterprise. It is sedition enough in FB, can not be that LE is permitted while registrants are not. Defies equal liberty. Plain unlawful collusion between big data and government ON ALL 3 , THREE Soverigns.

      Community policing is a euphemism obfuscating certain undeniable truths. 1 all rights of free men are guaranteed by GOD!

    Um, sounds like public shaming for two years…..which sounds like a form of punishment………which sounds like a violation of due process 🤔 which sounds really effing familiar. But hey, I’m sure they’ll snag em with that “you can still have a normal life”
    just sign here 😈

    Lame. 5years for a second offense? And then they arent allowed to own a pet? Really? I guess they think they wont own one illegally…

      How about tropical fish? Wouldn’t they be fairly safe?

    This is the same Sen. Danny E. Britt, Jr. of NC that sponsored S-199 requiring registrants to provide internet protocol addresses and creates felony charges for registrants IF the website bans sex offenders. Also, there is a provision hidden in the bill that would retroactively create a new ‘high risk’ category for any offense with a person under the age of 18. Sen. Britt wants to reintroduce this bill in retaliation of Peckingham vs. North Carolina.

    Senate Bill 423 would also create a registry for pet abuses.

      Robin V better jump on that one. Peaceful assembly permits sidewalks are available for protest. If protests can go on near offenders homes, politicians are open to the same.
      Imagine the power of 50 registrants parading near a politicians personal home. I’m not in NC, but such a strategy would gather attention to the issue. Registrants in NC have only their rights to get back. I trust they will reclaim their rights to free speech.

      • Dwayne Daughtry

        Update on S-199 (Internet Strengthen Laws). So far, the bill has been stripped of most of the IP addressing and other similar language. The only portion that remains is the “high risk” offender section. It went back to the Senate where the bill failed but has been placed back in committee to determine if the bill is effective at all.

        As for S-423 (Animal Abuse Registry), the bill has failed to move from the Senate which may die in committee.
