Didn't someone once say something about not being judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character?

When in the hell is that ever going to happen?

everyone makes mistakes I made mine when i was young i know now how wrong i was, should i be held accountable even after i make improvements to myself and situation. I want to help others even if that means putting myself in harms way. I have made changes to my life and want to move on. Now I am being profiled because of mistakes I made as a young man.p.o.d c.i.d

I know its kinda late, but what you guys fail to realize is that as a firefighter YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED to carry a firearm. Its not in the job discription, so therefore the case of being a felon does not and should not apply..

What a Joke, The department couldn't find a few good man. I used to have respect for them. They just killed it.
You are a judgmental impotent little boy with nothing better to do then judge those who try to repent by putting there lives on the line for sorry assets like you I'd rather have a man trying to make peace with his maker by helping others then a pimples geek sitting on his computer whacking it complaining about everyone he can't be get a clone trombone or whatever the check your name is.
