    Some might see it otherwise but I have a problem with a person previously convicted of multiple child molestation charges driving a child to school or otherwise working in the school system or a person convicted of multiple armed robberies serving as a police officer and apparently so do those who author the laws in this regard.

    I have often wondered why the full faith and credit clause of the constitution applies to every state issued license except a license to carry a firearm, which the constitution says I have an unimpeachable right to do.

    Again, do you believe in rehabilitation or not?


    If not, back up your argument with actual data. Not imagination or an anecdote or two.

    Well, whether or not a convicted felon can hold public office is a matter of state law. In Mass, a convicted felon most definitely can hold public office, vote and even serve on a jury, it's in our <insane> laws.

    The best example of this is Mayor James Michael Curley who was twice convicted of felonies and even served prison time WHILE he was Mayor of Boston. It probably explains a lot about Mass politics and government! There are more recent cases as well. But this is a very interesting read!

    Tell you how stupid the criminal justice system is. Friend plead guilty to computer crimes, and served 2 years in Club Fed. He gets out, 220 miles from home, and has 24 hours to get back home and report to a halfway house. He spends 3 months at the halfway house in da hood, and is supposed to find work while living there, but without a car.

    Once he gets home, he has to maintain his employment (which he does) and report monthly to the parole officer and provide a urine sample. He gets a better job at a large company, and during one parole visit, the parole officer asks him if the employer knows he is a convicted felon. He says it wasn't asked on the application, they did not ask -- he didn't tell, and they did not do a background check. Parole officer makes him tell the employer, which promptly fires him. Now he has to find another job or risk violating his parole.

    That's sadistic. Or maybe he gets paid by the number of people he handles so has an incentive to keep people in the system.

    As stated in the original post, computer crimes. I can't really go into further detail without someone being able to figure it out. Lets just say it was one of a rash of well-publicized hacking crimes in the early 90's.
