If someone isn't working with children or around children at work, and is behind a counter at a deli, then what is the issue? Perhaps he should be on the streets with time on his hands, huh? I don't defend what he did, but was he currently breaking the law working behind the counter at the deli? No. Get a clue, people. If you try to chase offenders away from jobs they can do safely, that gives them time out on the streets, unable to pay for restitution to the victim. Joblessness and idle time may also drive them to harm someone else. And what was Fox News doing publicizing a minor's arrest record for all to see?
Sue good point

I read it and it didn't occur to me until you mentioned it. It is illegal to expose a minor's arrest record. Fox?

My son my molested by a young man that was 15 at the time. This summer he plead guilty. He received probation, put on the sex offender registry list, and has to go through an intense treatment program. I was appalled to find out last week that he works at our local grocery in Brush. When I called his probation officer and asked if someone on the registry was allowed to work at the grocery store he replied yes. I don't have peace about him working there. Beside the fact that I can no longer shop there because my fear of my son seeing him and what he will do to him, I am convinced he will strike again. Thank you Fox for running the story Sunday night.

King Soopers also hires companies that hire illegal aliens to clean their stores. Go to a King Soopers early in the morning, and listen to all the non-english speaking employees there. It doesn't surprise me at all that they have a registered sex offender working in their store. They don't do any serious background checks of people working in their stores.

If this guy had stayed in "Littleton" instead of coming back to Denver this never would have happend!

King Soopers hire all the misfits and illegals. I hope Kings gets sued big time!
Euthanize him ASAP!!

What kind of people do you think hire onto King Soopers their lowest-wage positions? If not the pimply teenage student, then the maladjusted adult. Theoretically, this is supposed to be what we want, isn't it? A guy who "does his time" and afterward becomes a "productive member of society?"

Is this guy so evil he can't bag your groceries? Even if 90% of his paycheck is funnelled back into our state-approved "Treatment Program?" Good for him that he even managed to obtain a job. Hopefully some stability and therapy will curtail his defective proclivities.

Until we create a prison island where we can throw all our deviants and forget about them, they are going to live amongst us when they have done their time. What would you have them do- get Social Security Disability, or work?

King Soopers dropped the ball on following their hiring policies, but if they institute a program where felons are monitored while working, I see no bad side to having them earn a living.

And keep your kids by your side, and know who they are with.

Seriously. I'm pretty sure that at one store they have an ILLEGAL ALIEN manager who boasts about his gang tattoos and ties to a gang to other management employees...
This is from a relative who used to work in management/front counter work for several years at several stores...

Another illegal alien from Europe committing nasty crimes, I have no sympathy for any child molester! Illegal immigration sux, when it was just us Native Americans it used to be way better and didn't have to worry about competing with the neighbors for materialistic objects or nasty people committing these type of crimes, we'd cut their things off if they ever did and I bet no one else would have followed after that!

While the crime that Stringer was convicted of is absolutely indefensible and inexcusable, I praise him for “attempting” to be a productive member of society putting this horrific chapter behind him. My thoughts go out to the families that are still trying to recover including the Stringer family!
