    That’s ok, if that punk gets elected she can have him work security. It’s all good, government will get him a phone and health care. Wonder if he is good with dogs?

    Even with a degree, I wouldn’t give a criminal/past criminal history a chance. Do you know how many good people of all ages & colors are unemployed? You people worry about criminals. Allow them to continue doing their jobs!
