    Re: Animal Abuse Registry

    I would have to say no to it. Even if it is not exactly like the sex registry in implementation there will always be those that will be put on it when they shouldn't have been. And I agree with the person that mentioned PETA. PETA folks are....for lack of a better word "insane" when it comes to animals and I have no problem seeing them use it in a malicious way. Such as finding the person and beating them to near death if not death period. Hell, that happens with the sex registry...not often granted...but then most people are not like those in PETA.

    I also agree with the person that mentioned making registries for such things as not wearing ones seatbelt. Where does it stop? Our government makes enough damn laws and ways to keep people sucking on its teet. We don't need more ways...no matter how well intentioned. Which reminds me of that old saying..."The road to hell is paved with good intentions".

    Absolutely not. People shouldn't have mistakes dogging them for the rest of their lives.

    The absolute least convincing argument to me would be to try to appeal to my sympathy for animal abusers. I have none.
    If that's what you gleaned from my comment(s), then your reading comprehension is a HUGE FAIL.

    I'm not much for looking at "slippery slope" arguments. If something sounds reasonable and helps to protect something I believe should be protected without unreasonable cost, I say do it. If folks want to cross state lines, they will... but the vast majority won't bother. The abuse I see of animals out here in "the country" is appalling. Every damned month some ass is going to trial for starving his animals, or beating them, or flinging a litter of kittens into a river, or taking a meat cleaver to a screaming baby possum... so yeah, if something as simple as a website data base keeps those same freaks from adopting or purchasing other animals, I'm all for it.
    I do not believe there is any rational reason for support of something like this. We’ve already seen problems with other lists that we have such as the sex offender list, the no fly list, etc. They cause problems. If a person has gone through the court system, then there is public record of that and you can look it up. There is zero necessity to compile this into a single database.

    People do have the right to privacy in the end, and after one has completely fulfilled their punishment; they should be afforded the full of their rights again. Not this pathetic forever punishment people keep pushing because of fear and other things.

    If it's like all the other government run databasing of the People, then no it's not that easy. It may not be as devistating as being on the sex abuse registry; but that one also is incredibly hard to get off of if you find yourself on it falsely.

    Did you look up that number? Then that means the stats and data is already being tracked.
    If the FBI wants to investigate potential mass murderers with this data, they just have to get a warrant to examine the information. With this database/registry, no warrant would be required.
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    And how many of those reported cases was of an animal that wasn't actually being abused? Our court system sends innocent people to prison for murder, a much more serious offense. That is of course assuming that those 5,000 reported cases are actual court convictions and not just "reports" where someone is just accused of it.
