Don't Do the Crime, If You Can't Do the Time .....
I heard that alot growing up. It should ring true with most people.
I see the injustice in what you have written. Society has become judgmental and unforgiving.
Just in my local area, if you have a felony on your record, apartment complexes won't rent to you.
Its out right discrimination. I don't see how these people get away with it. Laws should be made
to completely remove any ioda of discrimination. But that isn't going to happen because people
like their ability to push other people around. And its the same way with jobs. If you get convicted
of any kind of misdomeanor offense they won't hire you. Unless you have bookoo bucks to get a
good attorney to get the record expunged, you don't have a camel jockey's shot in hell of getting
it off your record.
I myself am not a convicted criminal. I had a girlfriend that had a felony and life has been tough for her.
But she made it that way on herself. And while I didn't like seeing the discrimination she felt from others,
she never accepted responsibility for her actions that put herself in that situation.
As long as people pay for their crimes and do not re-offend, the vail of suspicion should be lifted and never
held against them again. They've paid their dues. And if you haven't figured it out by now, the Justice System
in the United States is now to protecting the CRIMINALS because it gets its MONEY from them. They don't give a rats a$$ about the protecting the
public. Think about it. The job of the PoPo (Police) is to serve and protect.
They serve the the City fathers and protect the Criminals. PERIOD !
