Public Scrutiny

Delaware has expanded its use of the public registry of sex offenders, as reported by the News Journal. This is an action that is both criticized and praised.

Do you think that publicizing criminal behaviour may serve as a deterrent? The founders did. Public stocks, and hangings were the norm.

The publication of this material also helps us to guide our lives more safely. Do you believe that?

What are your thoughts?
