"Both are legal offenses.
What's wrong, don't you want your neighbors to know that you might kill them by driving too fast?
I say let the people decide. I would have a couple tickets and I live a few blocks from a school, so why shouldn't parents know?"
There is a significant difference between a sexual predator deliberately targeting children and some guy in a hurry to get to work, who presses the speed limit and gets caught.

So are you saying you'd have a problem with fliers being passed out about your past speeding ticket?
You have still done something that highlights your inability to follow rules to the point of endangering someone else.
There are differences between all crimes. But they are all crimes, nonetheless.
I think it would do us well to know who has embezzled, stolen, murdered, committed tax fraud, etc. It is already in the public record, so requiring the albatross to follow us around would be a good tool, don't you think? Let's re-register our crimes everywhere we go.
I find it interesting that almost no other person on this thread has a problem with not knowing where murderers are among us, if not speeding tickets.
