I don't get it. I just don't see what the big deal is with knowing someone's

People think it's magical key that can get you all kinds of information
about someone. Bullsh*t. An SSN does NOT get you an entry into peoples
private information. Not as the key anyways.

And as a site note, it looked to me like the post was from a public
information resource on a website, not from an internal law enforcement
database. To make the post on-topic - btw - I believe the state and local
police in St. Louis used a DG Eclipse back a few years for their criminal
databases. Note to self - call them and find out where the systems are.

It's well established that convicted felons DO loose privacy rights. Take,
for example, pedophiles being required to notify neighbors, having their
names posted on websites, etc. I think this is horribly wrong, but, it is a
clear precedent that has been established.
