From the Daily News:
Child beaters should be tracked just the way sex offenders are, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Sunday.
"We have no comprehensive system to make sure that after they strike once, they never strike again," Schumer said, speaking outside state court buildings on Centre St. in downtown Manhattan.
Schumer called on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to implement a national tracking database of child beaters, similar to those that exist for sexual predators.
"It doesn't make any sense at all that while we try to watch sex offenders like hawks, we let child batterers, who physically batter children, slip through the cracks," he said.
A 2006 congressional act authorized the government to create such a database, but it has yet to be implemented.
Sounds like an interesting idea at first until you realize that they usually beat the shit out of their own kids, not kids they pick up at the mall. So I'm not sure what he has in mind.
