# POLITICS /// Texas death penalty data bankDecember 23, 2010

Law / Philosophy - By: Léopold Lambert
Franz Kafka imagined it, Texas administration achieved it. Incarcerating and justice world is ruled by administrative processes and collection. Last example comes from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice which lists every information about death penalty condemned: crime description, name of the victim, age, race etc. and the “offender” last statement. What kind of human respecting administration collect such deeply private information and post it on the internet ?
It reminds me of those incredible websites I found out being in US, collecting every information about sex offenders and murderers (crime, name and precise address) after those ones spent the time in prison that justice decided they should spend. This seems to me as a total violation of the principle of justice and once more human respect.
This is a model of society functioning like a paranoiac machine denying the individual to only deal with categories.
