Registries, not just for sex offenders anymore


Two powerful Chicago aldermen are proposing a gun offender registry that would allow the city’s police to track people convicted of weapons violations.

The ordinance proposed by Aldermen Ed Burke and Isaac Carothers would require offenders to check in with police every six months. Unlike sex offender registries, the information would be available only to police and not to the public.

    I have a better idea, if reducing crime is the objective.

    First, get a copy of all of the Illinois Unemployment Tax Returns filed with its Department of Revenue.

    Next, identify the people who work for a living.

    Last, focus your law enforcement attention on those who don’t.

    As an alternative, try profiling.

    Once a concept of an idea is tried and has become accepted, it WILL be expanded and/or applied in other areas. Unless that concept happens to be that of the Liberty guaranteed by our Bill of Rights. For some reason that one doesn’t get much support.

    hum… seems the police can’t be bothered to look up a rap sheet.
