They should apply for super for the shool districs . They have the right qualifications and the fools that sit on boards would at least be able that show their record before they get hired.Or they can run for political office since that seems to be one of the requirements to run for office except again it would not be a secret.

Oh yeah. Not just in the prison system.. heck as you know, everyone has their clique... and stays with their own... but on the streets its getting bad here.. lots of Mexican Gangs on the rise. M13 is also showing its ugly head here as well. I saw for the first time today some Blood scribbles on a wall near my house.. most of the gangs we have here are little punks that have no clue. Seems more organized azz-hats are on the rise here now.. I know it has a lot to do with control of the drug trade here, El Paso will soon be the new battle ground.. we cant keep it in Juarez forever. Gangs want to get their cut so, expect to see some dead kids all around town in the next 3-5 years.. I fear it will be a big eye opener.. kinda like Katrina shinning a light on the many destitute People in New Orleans. Except ours will be a light on the drug problems we really have in the Sun City.

Hopeully it won't become an LA. They even run business from within the prison. Gangs are huge out here.

To those of you that think that you're an angel because you have'nt got caught by the police for the crimes that you have done, or probably are doing right now, you're time will come.That is stop talking bad about ex cons. They are human too.Some of you might have family members that are ex con, or criminals, such as your mama,daddy,brother,sister, or maybe your fucking kids.Are you talking negative about your family members as well?

How would you feel if your sister, or brother can not get a job to support their kids(your nephews, and nieces) because he,or she is a ex con? So please stop talking negative about ex cons, and try looking at yourself in the mirror, before you talk about other human beings.We sin everyday, and so do you.

Has anybody seen the play "Les Miserabe" or read the book, "The Count of Monte Cristo"? If you are somewhat educated you will understand where I am going with this. Not everyone in prison is a rapist, murderer, nor child molester. Some have been imprisoned falsely and some have made mistakes. 80% of these prisoners are human beings that deserve a second chance at life. When they are sentences and serve their time in prison, that is their punishment. When they are release it doesn't make sense to continue to punish them since they have already been punished. I have worked in the Department of Corrections as a Corrections Officer. If you have never worked in that kind of environment you have no right to sterotype every criminal that is released from prison.

I have read every one's comment. I see where you all are coming from. Some of you I agree with and some of you I don't. Coming from a woman that has been sexually abused as a child from my step dad, I agree that the sex offenders should be locked up!At the age of 15 I was tried as an adult and convicted as a felon. I am now 24 and yet have to say that at the time I did my crime I needed prison. I was very angrey at everyone and a ticking time bomb. Granted, I was charged with attempted first degree murder; but i pred guilty to assult in a secret manner. From that time till now I have changed alot and regrest what I did daily. With thaat being said, I haven't gone out here and tried to kill, rob,steal,etc since my relese in 2002. Does thqt mean that I am still a bed person? I don't believe so. I think that it is what you do to change your life says alot of what you do with your time and if you truely want to change. With me, I want to help other troubled teens in the court system that are on their way to messing up their life royally. I don't want to see another teen go down the same road I did as a teen. Nor do I want to see another teen in prison and add to the ex con list. If I have steped on someone's toe in writing this then I am sorry. Yet again, I am not.

So does anyone know where ex-cons can go apply for jobs without being judged and actually give them a chance to prove that they are not bad people and are in dire need of a job so that they can get out of that type of life?

I totally agree with you. It is not fair to take away someone's way to contribute because of an offense over 10 years ago! Someone needs to find a way to fight injustice and prejudice against ex-cons when it comes to finding and securing a job. This should not be a life sentence!!!

My thought is that once you get felonies on your record, you can never leave that behind you. That typically means that you will be disadvantaged when looking for jobs for ever. We probably shouldn't kid ourselves into thinking that you do your time and then you are back to normal. It probably never gets normal again. Even if you are super-educated, this will still follow you and limit you.

Not a position that I would want to be in.

you are some what wrong. and its that kinda of thinking that makes this country what it is. how come they are rejectedd from society after comminting a crime, yet the people controling the banks that put us in this situation get a free pass plus free money from the country? this people need to be supervised. you call your self the black panther? you then should be understanding how the prisons are crowded of black prisoners that need a second chance. drug dealers, murderers, are products of the how the system works...
