Tracking registries

There is a recent Seattle Times article (http://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/tracking-violent-ex-cons-registries-grow-but-do-they-work/) that details the various registries around that don’t help. This is in addition to the OH drunk driver registry, the animal abuser registry in various locations, etc. It is about labels, shaming and political gains.

If one was to gather all of the registries, regardless of the offense, a true portrait can be painted of what we have become as a society…..maybe then, and only then, can registries be painted as what they truly are, punishment and not for the safety of the public.
