Pop Warner of Linden New Jersey is full of children who have positive black role models in there lives many of them Fathers who have turned there lives around and are giving back to the community by volunteering as coaches. They submit to a back ground check as a regulation Article 21 Mandatory Background checks and now because of city funding she has elected to push for a bill that forces these volunteers out from coaching based on charges they may have had when they were teenagers. If the first intial background check was done and they all passed. Meaning there was nothing in there background proving to be harmful to the children why now is she trying to push for them to be removed even if they have charges that are 15 to 20 or more years older. Who is perfect? Maybe if this program was there for them as teenagers they could have had a positive outlook on life at that time. Instead yes some made mistakes . But are now trying to give back to the community. And because you dont want to help fund the City you enforce this and let these children down. A BLACK WOMAN WITH CHILDREN OF YOUR OWN WHO AT ONE TIME ASKED A VOLUNTEER COACH TO SPEAK TO YOUR SON AND ENCOURAGE HIM and now you reward this person or these people by pushing a bill that will set these young black children out in the cold. SHAME ON YOU !

so one coucil member can make a "bill"? all laws are discussed and voted on by all council what is the big deal? All youth organizations and city workers will have a background check not just this one group and there is an appeal process from what I read in the Bill posted on the singled out council womans' face book. Remeber that ALL COUNCIL MEMBERS VOTED FOR THIS !
