Orthodox Jews Consider State Registry

The Hasidic community in Brooklyn are still freaking out about the murder of 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky and are thinking about registering their kids with Operation Safe Child, a state-ran database that stores a chid’s pedigree information and fingerprints.

Should anyone go missing, authorities could then ascertain that data, which like surveillance cams, doesn’t help prevent tragedies, but does come in very handy after the fact … to the media especially.
