Absolutely. Fraud, such as counterfeit checks, forgery or using someone else's credit card, aren't violent crimes but they can cost companies and individuals thousands of dollars, lost time and anguish. If you commit any serious crime, violent or not, you should have a convicted felon status; that keeps the rest of us safe from you. * Not when it is arbitrary. Records of felony convictions do not offer safety to the public even when they are related to violent crimes. The mere fact that someone has a record does not keep him or her from engaging in criminal activity, and as can be proven by FBI stats. background checks are seldom complete. Civil and criminal records of all court proceedings are seriously backlogged some by months many by years. Therefore, being able to access such information in a timely and accurate manner is simply not possible.
