    I think this is a great idea that should be adopted nationwide! Many women (and some men) get into abusive relationships with no knowledge of their abusers past history. If this registry saved even one person from the horrors of an abusive relationship then it would be well worth it. Wish something like this had existed when I met my ex, because he would never have had the chance of even becoming my ex if I had known his history. I would have gone the other way as fast as possible!

    N.Y. Domestic Violence Registry Proposal Met With Big Concerns
    Plan Said To Be Well-Intentioned, But Could Impact Fed Funding

    MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — It’s a controversial idea from some local lawmakers — registering domestic violence offenders, just like those convicted of sex crimes, on a state-wide database.

    Their names, addresses and photos would be made public.

    But would that put victims in greater danger?

    “My ex-husband, he would go into rage. He put a knife to my throat. He spit on me, choked me, many times in front of my daughter,” one victim told CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan on Monday.

    Police said they arrested that woman’s partner for domestic violence and weapons possession.

    But she said while he was out on bail his goal was to continue dating.

    I'm for it but I wonder about those that would cry wolve to get their partner in trouble? What would that do to someone's future?
