Feb 7th 2010 9:29AM Let me guess, your political affiliation? A Democrat... How meanial... Your transparent. Has no Democrat done anything wrong? Guess not!!! Keep it 100.
Feb 7th 2010 9:25AM Dan---You should try applying for a job after you get in trouble with the law. Very simply, you don't get hired. You don't even get an interview. Being an employer, I know first hand the ignorance. I was once a troubled youth. I would do anything to get a job, once I decided to straighten up myself. If that means lying on an application to put food on the table, then guess what I'm lying on the application. A white lie, is better than starving or going back to the life you are trying to escape. Sometimes you have to bend the truth to survive. Essentially, that is what we are talking about, isn't it? As always, I appreciate your oppinion, keep doing what your doing, but don't be so closed minded that you don't see the truth behind the entire story. Let's parallel your "own" splint story. At first glance your in a military uniform & wearing a splint. Then when people are trying to do their jobs, you become hostile & uncooperative. You even state, "it could have gotten ugly". Are you being judged unfairly? Are you the ex-felon trying to get a job? If my safety depends on making 1 person unhappy than I guess YOU are going to be unhappy. I would say that 99% of all Americans feel this way. You Dan, just happen to be the 1% that has an entitlement complex. I could be wrong, but you seem to be passing judgement & writing your "own" rules. Unfortunately, that is not how the world works. Keep it 100.

Unfortunately, security is top priority. I appreciate your service to this country, but some of your fellow countrymen in uniform, have other ideas. A military uniform does not excuse you from being held accountable. I'm not talking Nam' here, not hate for the military, but several incedences have occurred by US soldiers that justify this course of action. Keep being an American, serve your country & continue to voice your oppinions. I believe all citizens deserve a second chance & to earn a decent living. Don't judge a man/woman on a 20 year ago incident, judge them on their intentions now. I go by this motto, the difference between someone with a criminal record & someone without one is... the one with one got caught. We all do dumb things, for most of us we all do things illegal. Until we can persecute everyone instantaniously (think Demolition Man), we must not judge all by "our" high & mighty throne. Tolerance, education & knowlege is key. Keep it 100.
