on the surface, it seems like such a simple idea. after all, after six years of living in fear and terror, don't we all want to be safe?

like in the fifties, this is how freedom dies. thanks for so eloquently tieing them together jim.

Jim, I normally can appreciate your work, even if I don't necessarily agree with the "point" you're trying to make. However, I think your comparison is off base this time around.

Here are my reasons:

1. This list should only be available to those who work directly with the law enforcement agencies. That eliminates the "vigilante" problem, any public embarrassment or infringement of personal rights, or the inhibiting of any former criminals trying to turn their life around (though that only applies to about 5% of them).

2. These people do not get on the list because they were ticketed for jaywalking, parking violations, or speeding. (For those of you who don't don't actually read the article - the "list consists of people who have committed a violent crime in the past year and have one prior offense involving a gun or drugs".) The people on the list chose to do those crimes... there is no way to "accidentally" attack, murder, rape, rob, deal drugs, etc.

3. The list should not be used to "predict" the future or start any manhunts. It would only serve as a helpful tool for law enforcement agencies. (Ex. determine appropriate places to concentrate their patrols).

If these 3 things are realized, I don't think any law-abiding citizen would have a problem with the proposed list.
