I am a felon.
Do you know how hard it is to get work?
But with our current system of overcriminalization, almost anyone can be arrested at any time.
Only time a criminal record should be brought up is if it could affect the job.
Ie you shouldnt let a sex offender in a school
A fraudster run a bank.......o wait that happens everyday.
But anyway thats my view.

I wish that it was handled in the manner you would handle it. The truth is in the current corporate and political climate that is isnt handled that way and we literally have no recourse.

This isn't just about hiring people and felonies and violence. There is another entirely separate issue that is causing this in the first place.
People in America aren't getting the help they need.
Would you be more inclined to believe that if someone came to you, not out of prison, but our a of a, ohhhhh lets say a environmental treatment facility, where we put them into an environment of love and acceptance and they learn what its like to love and accept people instead of sending them to hole of severe predatory violence and making them worse?
Runnon sentence i apologize but youll get the general idea of what im saying...all of these issues are a direct result of our inability to help and understand our fellow human being.
Im more worried about what someone that has 12 assaults on their record is going to do WITHOUT a job.
Gotta love the progressive mindset.
