Repeat offenders should be doing prison time and should never be given a driver's license again. However, such changes cannot be made by a municipality, so this is the worst they can do. I don't think it'll work, but I see no reason to object.
No one has a privacy interest in his own arrest and conviction; those are inherently public events.
Spotlighting people so nuts can go after them
Yep and any car they are caught driving unless stolen of course is to be impounded and auctioned off with the proceeds going to help victims of drunk drivers.
Sounds like a waste of time and money to me. I wonder how long it will be before they would change the law to first time offenders like the person originally wanted.
Also, the wording of what they want to do is a little shady.
The article says arrested more than once for DUI. It doesn't say convicted, it says arrested. Arrest does not equal automatic conviction.
Also, this could probably fall under "cruel and unusual" punishment, therefore unconstitutional. Once someone has served their time, they have paid their debt to society.
It sounds great to me! Also not a bad idea for dead beat parents who don't pay their child support.
I use this tacit myself on my sister. I tell her when i will be there and to get a sitter on her wall. I will post the restaurant and time of reservation. NO mistakes or ooppss i didnt know or forgot.
The program is an indication of the failing influence of mulch media (newspapers). Years ago having "your name in the paper" would be shame enough. Nobody reads the papers anymore. The problem as we all know is the potential for hackers to insert fake info.
No. This is an extreme violation of privacy. The worst threat to individual privacy today is the cronyism between large companies such as Facebook and Google with the government.
I highly recommend updating one's FB profile to make sure various items of information are not shared across the broad internet.
Here in NJ we have the Megans Law registry and the DOC websites replete with pics and criminal history. I don't see how this would be any different, except there is a disclaimer on those sites. Facebook might be a much cheaper alternative to a state-created website. A lot cheaper.
That's what Megan's Law is all about.
