Are workplace shootings predominately done by folks with criminal backgrounds? Are the teachers caught committing sexual acts against the elementary school aged students passing background checks?

If there could be some consensus, such as 7-10 year limits in criminal background tracing similar to drunk driving and bankruptcy, then we would not have folks 35 years old, still answering for stupid things they did when they were 18 years old, that didn't even involve firearms or sexual acts.

And even then, we have the Brian Banks of the world, accused and convicted of a rape he didn't commit, with overzealous prosecution, lying victim and bad defense attorney.

A felony should not be a life sentence, unless you are in the penitentiary doing life.

My family owns a business & all of us are White family members or long time trusted White friends & two very trusted Cubans & that's it, not one drug addicted thieving black ex con, however from time to time an unsuspecting black saunters in with the hope of finding employment with us & the way we get around that is to give them an application which list basic requirements which include that all applicants considered for employment must be bilingual, many of them (seeing that we are based in Miami) think the alternate language is Spanish, but when it comes to that particular point in the application process, I kindly inform them that our required second language must be Russian, German, Romanian, Bosnian or Polish, get's em every time, Sorry Sambo, you're not qualified, better luck next time.

Wow, this latest n¡g-noggery is lame even by present lib standards. The people making these types of rulings need to meet a firing squad, for their hand in the ruination of America.

These damn crooks like all the others, abusing law and the legal system for personal gain needs (We the ppl) to show up on their door mat and use whatever force is necessary to show our disapproval in their practice(s), policies, etc. I ask, "why are we tolerating this kind of business practice in our communities? In the 70's,(We the ppl) boycotted the meat industry after price gawging and (We the ppl) won. 40 yrs later, why we stopped? I can now understand how Americans that turn radical against there own country when bullshit like this happens #AKA-47

Syed Farook passed a background check.

I'm sure those folks at San Bernardino Health Department had to pass some stringent requirements.
