So now. felons may be teaching our children. Felons may be maintaining our city parks. Thanks, Democrats, you have just put the fox in charge of the hen house. My question? When one of these felons is arrested and convicted again, which politician will volunteer to serve his time and pay his court costs. Who will be held responsible?

Hey, old man, do you realize how many recent members of the PA state legislature- from BOTH parties, and chambers- are now serving time for felonies committed in office? And it isn't any better in the US Congress; some- again, from both parties- had criminal records even before their election!

Standard "urban" Pittburgh. So a good hard working, law abiding, tax paying person who is eleigible for a job, could get bumped out by some criminal. Great job Pittsburgh. These are the people who's salaries are paid the law abiding taxpayers, yet, they work against us.

Just what does that have to do with some rapist on the city payroll, working with kids and women? Again, my question, who will will be responsible when even one of these dodo's slips back and hurts a kid or a woman. Will the council say it will serve the time? Will the politicians pay the court costs? Where is the responsibility?

End affirmative action and quotas based on gender and race. Merit employment for nonfelons. America can no longer afford to coddle splittails and obamatangs.

Agreed. Nobody wants to take responsibility for anything they do. They will just point the finger at someone else. When it happens, don't worry, it will be blamed on the criminal not getting enough attention when they were a kid, or being bullied, or the world not understanding them. Pathetic.

My point was that the fox is already in charge of the hen house in government. Actually, I believe the article provided too little information for a definitive answer to the broader question presented by "ban the box," but I do have unanswered questions, and so unresolved concerns regarding the issue.
