Reply To: Sex offenders need not apply

R. Arens

The whole background check b.s. is a little dated don’t ya think? Our “land of the free” incarcerates more people than any country on the face of the Earth. Those in and those out and as many as there are, felons in the US are not exactly a minority. There needs to be a law to abolish background checks except to those who’s crimes are relevant to the job they are seeking. A sex offender shouldn’t work in a daycare or school like a armed robber shouldn’t work at a bank, or drug dealers working at a pharmacy. It’s bogus that a company that processes meat (for example) should do a level 3 pentagon grade security check on a person doing lowly factory work. All I’m saying, is that’s bull s__t. Plain and simple.
