Police database: necessary?

The Minnesota Daily has an interesting story about bills to create a statewide police database to cover incidents. From this story, it sounds like anytime the police are involved in an incident, regardless of whether or not criminal charges are filed, it will go into the database. After 10 days, it will become public information.

If this is accurate, I don't like it one bit. If we had this, landlords would undoubtedly use it to find "problem tenants", even if a person had only been warned about a loud party by the police and no charges had been filed. Pulled over for speeding but given just a warning? Well, your insurance company will know about it.

I think it's great to share information between police, but this is the wrong way to do it.

So many blogs and only 10 numbers to rate them. I'll have to give you a 7 because you have good content but lack of quality posts.
