She applauds the ordinance and is happy to learn it workedShe loves it because she's not subjected to them, and feels superior to the show people who are.If that guy is so dangerous that he can't even be trusted to work at a carnival, he should have been exectuted, or, at least, given a life sentence.
quote:Originally posted by OdditycollectorI agree that yes it is being used mainly on just carnival workers and not vendors. The other night on Craigslist in the Syracuse area someone was posting about the guy from Wheelock Rides that was arrested for Sex charges was back working for them and even took pics of him working around kids last week if true it is going to do nothing but make it harder for everybody. I have had to go through a few background check it does not bother me at all but that is what is happening all over the place.
quote:Originally posted by BenjibearIt is front page news when certain people do it when they work around children. This is limited to carnivals but churches, schools, etc. Schools are usually a real big deal because people at least in PA need FBI clearance, PA state police background check, and PA child abuse clearance check. I even need to get that even to do engineering work at a school. I agree it is discrimation. If they want to do background checks it should be all workers and employees. It shouldn't be just the carnival employees. Part of me understands why these things need to be done, but the other part feels sad that this is the type of world we live in.
