In the database world that we live in, it's going to be hard to get rid of public record that we duplicated throughout multiple departments of the government. Almost impossible. However we should never forget the liberal tyranny and intrusions committed by politicians given temporary power.

It's tough putting the genie back into the bottle. Arrest records are public also and data harvesters have records almost as fast as they are created. Then there are FICO scores, unlawful detainers fro not paying rent or pleading guilty to a charge for a reduced sentence. Good luck with fixing all that.

Somebody got an open bottle violarion 30 years ago? Good thing minnesotans are so intent on collecting and cataloging the data on all of these hardened criminals. Well done people.

It would seem academic to most people that there be sunset laws that automatically expunge less serious violations from the database. IMO those people that have committed a non violent legal transgression and have been good citizens since deserve to have their records expunged. Having said that all violent transgressors with a reoccuring record should NOT be eligible for expungement at any time.
