North Carolina has just joined Missouri, Wisconsin, and other states as states that can legally GPS Strack Registered Sex Offenders for the rest of their lives. When I saw that headline, as a resident of Illinois, I thought to myself, why don't more states have that law? As far as I can tell, now that North Carolina has passed the law, there are now 7 states that say you can legally GPS track certain sex offenders for the rest of their lives.

Most states allow you to use GPS tracking for probational periods and for a designated amount of time after they are released from prison, but only Wisconsin, Missouri, Oklahoma, Ohio, Colorado, Florida, and now North Carolina allow for lifetime monitoring. 

There was a time back in 2011 when Illinois had a bill called HB2393, whose goal was to have a lifetime monitoring option for certain sex offenders, but it never made it to law.

To be honest with you, I am shocked that there isn't a federal law that allows for the lifetime GPS tracking of certain sex offenders. I understand that there are a ton of costs involved with monitoring people, and everyone has rights in this country, but when you commit a violent sex crime against anyone, you should lose some rights. Just like certain people lose the right to drive if they can't stop getting DUIs. Maybe I am in the minority here, but I would support Illinois joining Missouri as a state that allows for lifetime monitoring of certain sex offenders. What do you think?
