Yes, there are those felons who will turn their lives around. But I’m sure those you hired were only a small percentage of felons you had apply. How many of those felons you did hire were gang-bangers?
None, zero, zip.
The bar is higher for ex-cons, I must be convinced they have truly seen the light.
That, and there is a huge difference between making a single mistake in a fit of passion or moment of stupidity and making a conscious ongoing decision to be a career bad boy or bad girl.
So far no gang-banger has made my cut. Still, I'm open to the possibility...
