Rick Green still tracing his fat azzed lazy excon. How long will it be before he gets off his fat azz and provides some financial support for those twin daughters. And does Tjayda Sr. visit Tjayda Jr. doimg ten years for armed robbery?

Send Tjayda back to Weaver and let Stan Simpleton make a journalist out of him.

Who would want to claim a $10,000 tax credit and jeopardize the safety of his employees and customers? When the business owner is being sued because an excon shot or stabbed someone because he thought they dissed him how far will that $10,000 cover costs?

I have the opposite feeling...I think public figures should be held to a higher standard....and some college player should be giving an opportunity instead of bringing Vick back...

As far as the prison system goes, yes it should be about rehabilitation....and the stigma of the offense is the biggest problem....having to report a felony conviction. Yet, it also depends on the type of crime and what responsibility we have to society at large..... prehaps the employement should be offered as a state program for some types of offendors, prehaps some should be erased...at least publically because a second offense is an indication they will continue....
