The Fragmented Surveillance State

Big data policing means that new privacy-invading technologies are now a local problem. Instead of one frightening big brother surveillance state, the reality is really more like thousands of little sisters and brothers (and cousins) all reporting fragmentary bits of bad behavior. The result may be no less oppressive, but the solutions to challenge this growing privacy threat are far more difficult.

How Sex Offender Registries Impact Youth

According to the Center on Youth Registration Reform’s estimates, Leah is one of the approximately 200,000 individuals placed on sex offender registries for actions they engaged in before they were 18 years old. Proponents of laws that require children to be placed on sex offender registries argue that providing the public this information will help people keep their families safe from harm. But many believe that including children on registries does much more harm than good.

New Law Reforming California’s Sex Offender Registry is a Great First Step. Advocacy groups call to keep moving to fully eliminate the policy of placing kids on the registry.
