This is just a poorly biased article. I think this is the only thing that I like that has ever came out of San Francisco. Everyone makes mistakes at some point in their life. Having a felony for a mistake that you made when your young will basically ruin your life in our society. No employer will hire you and you will be stuck at poverty level wages for ever. This is the main reason why when someone goes to jail for a felony they will be a criminal the rest of their life. You have two choices work for horrible wages or try your luck at a more affluent life and commit crimes. It is a vicious circle.

I am halfway through my masters degree in Information Technology and I got in a bar fight. I was convicted of felony harassment. This is the only time in my life I have ever been in trouble and a felony destroys my chances of becoming successful. If I didn't have a great family I would be on the street right now homeless, because no employer will hire me.

Everyone deserves a second chance in life. This law will help bridge the gap for felons to become better people and promote success and hard work in our society. Also this will help get rid of the stereotypes against felons. If you hire a felon he will rob you or kill you. That is just ridiculous! Some felons are horrible people that deserve the life they chose, but some just made mistakes and want to move on to a better life.
