    the ideas for public registries are limitless...you confer validity on one, ya might as well have em all...they all fall under the same principles.

    i'm wondering about this animal registry thing...
    their were facts floated about folks whom are cruel to animals gradually moving to cruelty towards humans... how does this list affect that?... i don't see how you use this list of animal abusers to help with human abusers.

    Re: Animal Abuse Registry

    What I would support is a registry for violent crime and place those who have violently abused animals on there as well. I don't know if I can support an animal abuse registry for every action of animal abuse/neglect. I do think criminals deserve some sense of privacy, but violent crimes against humans or animals would be an exception for me.

    Re: Animal Abuse Registry

    I agree with those who say it's ridiculous and that the sex registry list is misused enough already. And the point of a sex registry is to protect my children.

    Props for panic, though!
    it's the same idea.... it's the same principle for every registry out there... and not one of them operates as advertised

    I personally blame Santa Claus .. his damned "naughty registry" started it all.

    what public interest does it serve to make it public?... and if you don't mandate background checks for animal purchases /adoptions.. it's all for naught anyways.

    I used to be against slippery slope arguments... but too many have come true over the course of my life to discount them out of hand.
    There are literally hundreds of individual animal control-type agencies in a single state. Each has a database. It would require those databases to be consolidated into a single site to be useful.

    There are certainly ways one could limit access to breeders, animal rescue organizations, those who buy/sell livestock. The public doesn't have access to no-fly lists, after all, and as for sex-offender lists, that's a whole 'nother topic. A good idea, peppered by idiocy run amuck by including someone caught urinating in public with pedophiles and rapists. The mind boggles.

    Anyway, this sounds inexpensive and useful, and if it keeps one sadistic freak from getting hands on an innocent animal, I'd like to see it tried.

    there was a time I would have agreed... but that was back when you could get in a schoolyard or barroom fight and not be hauled off to jail for it....

    it doesn't help that I would be on your violent criminals list too.... for beating up my brother in law when he was tweaking at my house.
    my record, before expungement, said i was convicted of domestic violence I... no context, no backstory, no nuthin.
    that particular list kept me from my 2nd amendment right for a little while... no telling what a public list would keep me from... it can be used however the person accessing it wants to use it.

    Took several posts to get around to it, but it appears you do approve of collateral damage. The end justifies the means, innocence is irrelevant, and as long as branding 2 people as criminals... "keeps one sadistic freak from getting hands on an innocent animal"... so be it.

    The absolute least convincing argument to me would be to try to appeal to my sympathy for animal abusers. I have none.

    We've arguably abused the sex offender registry already.
    Consarn it, I was trying for like 10 minutes to figure out how to say exactly that. My thoughts precisely.

    I'm all for society taking a stand against animal abuse, but creating a new underclass of social pariahs might not be the way we want to go.

    Then why did you vote that it was a good idea? Just curious.
