As to your bill, I would support it as long as it wasn't a blanket Class D felony expungement. Make it possible but weigh each case on its own merits.
I agree. That would be something that you could tell the members of the Judicial Committee to consider when they review the bill. The link is on here. All you have to do is click on the link, select your senator and email a message to them.

<quoted text>As for you, I have probably accomplished more in the last year than you have all of your life. I have pushed to have a bill created to get this changed. Had it drafted and presented to the house of Representatives where it passed by an overwhelming majority. I'm still working on this and learning as I go. You are just an arm chair quarterback who sits behind his computer and makes smug comments. Please don't waste your breath or my time.

What goes around comes around there Pig Benis, remember that! You need to quit judging somebody just, because they made a mistake. These people should have a chance to reform all the way if not then they should come and take your damn paycheck!

We had a guineafowl on our farm that was a squawker and was annoying at all hours of the day and night. We named him Pea Brain--PB for short. What a coincidence that those are also your initials!
So pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, also known as PB.

Now is the interim period between regular sessions for the Senate Judiciary Committee. They are the Committee that passes Laws in the State of Kentucky. They will hold meetings once a month to discuss what will be addressed in the November regular session. I encourage you to contact the Senate Judiciary members and encourage them to vote on and pass HB 47. The law that will allow non-violent felons who have proven to be good citizens over a period of 10 years, to get their Class D felonies expunged, so that they can get on with their lives and become productive citizens. This will allow them to get jobs and become productive citizens, not a burden on the system and others. No matter what your standpoint is on this topic there is something that you have to consider. The recidivism rate for felony offenders is high. That is in part due to the fact that those felons who would otherwise be productive citizens cannot find jobs and support themselves or their families. Giving low risk felons a chance at a new beginning, is a good incentive for felons not to re-offend, because they know that if they do well during the 10 year period, they will have a chance at a good life. When people are pushed into a corner and they are out of options, they may do things that they would not normally do.
For example: if a personís family is hungry, and they canít get housing or jobs, that person may do something that they would never dream of doing had circumstances been different. It may be a bad choice, but between the choice of going hungry, being homeless and broke, and not being employable or eligible for state or government help, that person may have very limited choices to survive. They may take the point of view for example ď What am I supposed to do, I canít eat, I have no way to pay rent, I have no way to feed my family, I am not employable, I have 2 options, break the law to get money or lay down and DIE.Ē Most likely they are not going to lie down and die. So then the cycle continues. A person who made 1 mistake years ago, has now graduated up to more serious crimes, which will probably evolve into a persistent felony offender. We can break a big part of this cycle by convincing the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote on and pass HB 47.

So is a DUI and why should a person be discriminated against for life for stuff like this; People still need to work. I have a PI from 2007 that is keeping me from jobs and it is a misdemeanor. It really all boils down to there being more than enough applicants, so they take the ones that are so-called squeaky clean. If there really was a need then nobody would have trouble getting a job.

Who committed the felony? What exact words of the law define the crime? Could it be simply because you had an incompetent lawyer?

What if you were celebrating, and you went outside and started shooting into the air, as part of the celebration, and by some freak accident, one of the bullets fell back to earth and hurt someone's head, and that person died in the emergency room, by some freak stroke of bad luck? Would it be fair for you to have the same chance at a job as someone who never did any such celebration? Even if the person who never celebrated needs the job more? Don't you think it's fair to give that person an extra chance, by withdrawing the chance of the person who celebrated?

And how is a DUI any different than celebrating by shooting a gun into the air? Don't you think it's fair to give the person who needs the job and never had a DUI, an extra chance at getting it, by withdrawing the chances of the person with the DUI?

And who can say both of those crimes are non-violent? Or either of them? What is your definition of violence? If you go on the stage of a crowded auditorium, and start shooting a gun at the audience, but, by some accident of luck, nobody gets hurt, is it a violent crime?

Bet you warm the bench in church with your vengeful behind. And while you build that prison or find that tree to hang people from, you need to ask God for some forgiveness, because you have already committed murder in your mind. Decent folk? Many of your so called decent folk have criminal secrets in some of their closets, too. Truth be told, you probably do too.

The EEOC found a way to sue those compainies who discriminate against felons. It works like that RICO Act against criminal organizations. They may not get employers for not hiring felons but will get them another way.
