    Good to see a Sheriff thinking of the public safety and privacy.

    This guy needs our full attention.

    Indeed, it's a shame the Beaverton PD doesn't feel the same way.

    Something doesn't smell right. Why would that form ask for the kind of personal information that they already have? It should be sufficient for you to enter your license number which can easily be reconciled with records.

    Or am I being paranoid?

    They said you don't have to type it in, but what it's for is to update their records regarding the privacy issue.

    I think it will protect my information from being leaked because of my specific choice to not let it become public.

    Regardless, I'd like to continue watching this - perhaps inquire further with the Sheriffs office.

    It's ONLY for residents of Washington county. I understand that most, if not all, other sheriffs have adopted the same stand, and are offering the same thing. It may be a moot point, as the courts may rule in favor of the press that's asked for the information, and the sheriff's will be required to provide the information anyway.

    Only in an Obamanation.

    I stumbled onto the announcement online while looking for unrelated Washington county info. Filled it out, then got a letter about it shortly thereafter.

    This has been going on due to a group in Southern Oregon. I believe a Judge ruled that this was allowable, unless the person got it for perceived threat or something odd. I would have to look up the exact phrase used.

    So some counties who don't agree, are adding a box on the form so you can say it is for personal protection or whatever the judge says would make publishing not allowed.

    I just hope, this goes up to the Oregon Supreme court. People have asked me, why shouldn't the be able to publish this.

    That is the wrong question is 'why do they think they have the right to publish it.' I know there are a lot of public records you can get on someone else, but we should be limiting that type of information. How do we get it to be part of HIPAA. That would screw anyone trying to get info on you.

    Any news paper or otherwise that posts this information will be getting a lawsuit right back at them. They think they can post our names and addresses? Then why can't we post there's? We have a right to know who is giving us the news every day, right?

    Yay! I don't have a CHL yet, but I sent an email to say he has my support.

    Name that fallacy?
    Somewhat of a hasty generalization. Perhaps somewhat of a straw man?
    Trying to get specific.
