Did you now that Government Records on Peoples Felonies, Misdemeanors & Sex Offenses, National Arrest &, Court Warrants, National Federal & State Tax Liens, National Federal & Civil Judgments, National Federal &, State Bankruptcies, Age/Date of Birth, Property Ownership, Death Index Check & Address History are available online? Whats even more interesting is that all of these records are readily available at your local county court house on disk for a couple thousand dollars. If you have the cash you can gain access to a multitude of information on people in your state, it is almost unsettling.
So Why is this information open to the public? Because under certain jurisdictions in most states some personal records are not to be kept confidential for certain security reasons. If these records were to be kept under lock and key the state it's self would have to under go a series of paper filings to gain access to this information, this is a loophole that can not be easily closed and that has allowed the knowing public to have access to this information if they are willing to buy all of it upfront in yearly data sectors spanning hundreds of thousands of records.
Interestingly enough some private in house operations across the country have sprung up offering these records on specific individuals for a one time fee. The people running there operations pay the thousands of dollars a year to have access to these records and ingeniously resell them to the curious public. You can also contact these businesses and request that you be removed from their databases to which they will have to follow your request under law.
