The EMT licensing board actually has no problem with people with a criminal record. It's WHAT you were in for that they look at. They usually turn away, on spec, people with violent offenses (rape, assault, murder) or people with drug offenses BUT a caveat to that is it depends on what your drug offense was. They will flat out deny people with prescription drug addictions and harsh drugs such as heroine, crack/cocaine, and meth. While that does narrow the field, it doesn't preclude you HAVING a record, it just greatly depends on what your crime was.

My husband is a convicted felon... it's been 6 years since his conviction and he has never reoffended... his charges were minuscule drug related charges such as crossing state lines with marijuana and containing used paraphernalia (which is a felony in 1 of the 2 states)... he has had to get work working for a very shady business an hour away from our home on an evening shift just to earn a pay check and our home had to be in my name because no one will rent to a convicted felon... I know that we have it incredibly well in comparison to most convicted felons... it is not fair the way people who have served their time and rehabilitated themselves are treated... we cant go to Canada to visit his family and couldn't/cant go on a honeymoon outside of the USA until 10 years after his conviction... it is bizarre to me that people don't see any problems with our justice/prison systems!

So in the Forrest Gordon Clark video of him coming out of the rubble holding up money. What he says is "I had 15 one hundred trillion DINAR NOTES stolen from me" to the average person this sounds ridiculous. But Dinar notes is the Iraqi currency... and it's huge scam! So to someone that believes in the scam they will be outraged to find that someone has stolen their goldmine! But in reality what they have is nothing but pocket money. The principal behind the scam is you can exchange your 1,000(u.s. dollars) for 1,000,000(dinar notes) and "the iraqi government is in the works to re-valuate the dinar note equaling the value of a u.s. dollar when that happens you can then re-exchange your money and then what was once 1,000 u.s. dollars is now 1,000,000 u.s. dollars"... The problem is... this is never going to happen and in the nearly 3 decades that the scammers have said it was going to happen... Well... you guessed it! IT NEVER HAPPENED! The best the iraqi government would do is re-denominate the note meaning the notes will just move decimal places. So that 50,000 dinar note will now be a 50 dinar note also equal to 50 u.s. dollars. So when you go to re-exchange your money your 1,000,000 dinar notes will just re exchange back to 1,000 u.s. dollars. The other problem is THIS isn''t even likely too happen! From my understanding the Dinar is so volatile that even the Iraqi citizens don't use it! So essentially all you have is a cool looking piece of paper. Now after all of this you may be asking yourself "Where is the scam? And how are scammers making money off of this?" They open currency exchange businesses or are the third party in your exchange they will make money by charging you exchange rates. You exchange for the dinar and they will make money. You re-exchange for your u.s. dollars and they make money. The other point where they make money is their "special dinar newsletter" websites that they tell you to check in on everyday for updates for their exclusive insider information. If you actually go to these websites you will see how low maintenance they are and ad filled they are. So basically they make money from hosting these ads on their dog shit new millennium websites. The more views(web traffic) they have the more an advertiser will pay.

If you're wondering how I know so much about this it's because a couple years ago when I was 18 years old I fell into this scam due to a friend and his family being so heavily invested in it($10,000 U.S. worth) telling my gullible ass I should just at least put $100 in... so I did. Fast forward to a year ago 23 years old I asked about it and they were saying the exact same things as the day they told me about it "The dinar gurus say it's going to happen any day now" at this point I was now extremely skeptical and decided to actually look into and in a couple of hours I figured out how it was such absolute bullshit and I finally knew the truth and was able to pick apart every shitty "fact" my fathers friend had told me when I was 18 and was still spouting as gospel(as do the "dinar gurus") and I came to him with the truths and he was extremely livid laughed a little bit and said to me "You're a f***ing idiot and know nothing about dinar" and you know what I was understanding of his anger because when you're 50 years old and are living paycheck to paycheck with $10,000 you inherited and essentially blew all in one go for this scam... anyone would be mad to hear that their one way out is all bullshit. It's actually pretty ridiculous as to how easy it was to research how it's a scam. And no one should be falling for this but unfortunately they do. SOOOOOOOOOO.... All in all in context Forrest Gordon Clark being outraged about his Dinar notes being stollen makes "sense" and isn't too crazy. But that being said... he''s definitely off.

I don't think James Charles was "complaining about being underpaid" I think he was just pointing out that digital influencers are paid less than and aren't as respected as traditional celebrities. The respect thing I can understand being upset about because many youtubers start by just filming videos by themselves, editing by themselves, and promoting by themselves all the while paying for everything themselves. It's only after reaching a certain degree of success that they start getting sponsorship and brand deals and even then, it's generally not traditional companies but mostly internet based companies, IE betterhelp.com. Whereas traditional celebrities usually have people to do all of that. BUT James Charles also put his Morphe code on merch so I think we should all just take James Charles with a grain of salt. In every context.

As an EMT. There is no way a DHS (Dept of Homeland Security) covered position, like EMS, Fire, Police, would let a person with those kinds of felonies to be part of their service. You have to deal with people's lives, stuff, homes and be the most thankless job ever. Those are also the most stressful jobs, because of those responsibilities, and granted they have to fight fires, they are doing it in the wilderness, and after a person has be evacuated.. Honestly, would you want a person that potentially could snap because of the stress of the job, while having YOUR LIFE STUFF OR HOUSE on the line. They could easily turn into people you see on NCIS, and Criminal Minds. You have the guardian angel who start fires while fighting them. The EMT who kills a patient because they get spit in their face by a HIV positive patient. Trust me, anyone with any violent crime would never be able to even hold a certification. You get a criminal background check every time you re-certify as well

I know this video is from roughly a week ago but... Last Week Tonight actually did a piece on the topic of the Sinclair merge. His video was posted on youtube on the 2nd of july 2017. Right now it has 8 mil views and that's not even the main platform that the show airs on. So, no, I DO think that people knew about this before Trump posted about it. But since the issue has been going on for such a long time I assume most people had just forgotten about it.

If California believes that prison is at least somewhat about rehabilitation, then they should perhaps start a program which partners with California EMT licensing agencies and fire departments in order to help people who have gained experience in a skill get a job.

I think the idea of prisoners volunteering to be fire fighters would be a great one if they could then turn that experience around to become actual fire fighters when they get out. Prison is supposedly about reforming inmates to become functional members of society. This seems like the perfect way to make sure there is enough fire fighters especially in high risk wildfire regions and provide these people with jobs that will make it less likely they will end up in the system again.

Slave labor? Not really. In a sense they are paying their rent. The cost it takes to keep so many people in jail. A roof over their head, food, all the utility costs, etc. I do believe people who engage in these programs should be considered for earlier release (parole) etc. Not everyone will engage, but don't forget there also a huge group of incarcerated people who really want to change their lives, learn new skills, be better when they get out. Doing this kind of labor is a way of paying back society, paying for the cost of your incarceration and learning new skills (and at least make a couple of extra bucks to save up to something nice). One of the biggest problems I see is the privatization of prisons where they become for profit businesses that put way too little earnings back into rehabilitation of their clients (and yes if you are a for profit business the inmates become your clients). It is a sad thing that these people wouldnt be considered for jobs like a firefighter after they get the right training. Again it may not be for every ex-convicted person but there are those who would benefit greatly from holding a position as a volunteer firefighter for when extra personal is needed. It is a way to hold responsibility, a reason to keep in shape (and sober) and get real satisfaction when being called upon to help out your community.

I think it's great that prisoners in jail for more minor crimes can volunteer to do work to earn rewards. Prison is supposed to be a correctional environment, so doing real work makes sense to me. I do wish they were paid a bit more, one dollar an hour seems insulting to me. If one of the guys who qualified for this program got out and wanted to become a firefighter, they should give him a chance. Giving criminals who have served their time a chance to become productive members of society seems like a net gain to me.

The inmates that fight fires should get paid better and allowed to fight fires when they get out. Just seems kinda logically if that's what they've been doing while they were in prison. It's not like there's a huge over abundance of firefighters everywhere. Most places could use more fire fighters and less fires. And while we're at it, maybe they could get paid better than 1 dollar and hour plus 2 dollars for the day? Yes they're prisoners, but they already spend most of their time in prison. That's shitty as it is. They should have the opportunity to buy more cigarettes, shitty snacks, or send some money back home. They're risking their lives. At least give them that much.

Inmates are begging for a chance to get out. This gives them time out of jail, recreation, job skills, and role models. They get paid in money and all of that. Fighting for a community is great rehabilitation. It’s voluntary and they get so much. I know people in prison and they wish for some opportunity like this or to plant their own healthy food in a garden. Outrage culture needs to stop - we need real public discourse. And yeah, I also believe they should be able to apply for a license if they complete some time in a job like this.

Part of the reason the recidivism rate in the US is so high, is because of the limited opportunities ex cons have once they get out. In other words... People who havent committed crimes, and are in positions of power are directly and indirectly part of the problem we have with crime and career criminals. It raises weird feelings and discussion points.. but true. Like seriously, the statistics are scary. Within three years of release, about two-thirds (67.8 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested. Within five years of release, about three-quarters (76.6 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested. Its no wonder why the US is home to about 25% of the world's prison population, while only containing about 5% of the world's human population.

Considering the ability to find a job and re-enter society following prison time, research shows that there is a large stigma surrounding those with criminal histories; schools and companies are far less likely to accept people with criminal histories than those who, for example, have no job experience or who have been unemployed for a long period of time. California's prison system is actually a good example of a system taking measures to combat this, with prison education systems unlike anywhere else in the US, connecting inmates to its state universities to take classes. I am not aware if EMT license training is a part of that system, but if it isn't, it should be, and likely will be soon. All in all, rehabilitation of prisoners is very important from the personal and the economical standpoint, research shows that every dollar invested in prison education systems creates a four-dollar return on investment in contribution to GDP.

Depends on the crime. You can't have people convicted of sexual impropriety can't be trusted with vulnerable people. I think convicted felons should be allowed to vote only after they have paid their debt to society. Low pay for prison workers... They're fed and sheltered at someone else's expense. Maybe instead of $0.20/hr they should be allowed to work time off the sentence?

On the topic of working prison inmates. There is a problem when inmates are released from prison and they can not find employment because they were incarcerated. I am a criminal justice major and i know that most inmates serving sentences are there due to non violent offenses. In some states there are government funded policies that promote business to hire recently released inmates. I personally believe in second chances mostly because there is a mixed expectations. The government wants released inmates to find jobs that are honest paying jobs but society does not want to hire them. I get that there is the mind set that all criminals are bad but regardless of what crime they have done they paid for there crimes they served time and unless they were convicted of a violent crime they should all be hired by business. When they don’t find jobs they turn to a life of crime and many returning offenders will say that they tried to find employment but they could not. Again I believe that they should be given second changes that way they don’t reoffend this not using tax payer money on inmates and using it for education or roads.

People like to throw around slave labor as if it's inherently a bad thing due to the bad past it's had. But if we have people that have taken away from others in our society by committing crimes, and are being paid to live by the people that they have hurt(victims and taxpayers), I see no reason why they shouldn't work, just because they're in prison doesn't mean they should get a free ride. Especially those that have committed crimes bad enough to receive life in prison, how does it make any sense to just keep a person locked in a box for the rest of their life and not let them do anything or do anything with them? If we're going to take away their life with prison, why not give them the option to either be executed or get a job in the prison and try to pay a little back for all that they've taken? It makes no sense other than to fund a corrupt system.

On fire fighters, I believe it’s good. These people are getting better treatment and they get some freedom and the chance to do good. I don’t see anything wrong with that. They deserve to suffer a little, as long as it has a positive impact.

If you watch news from sources outside the US they always talk about the prisoner firefighters. It is crazy most Americans dont know what's happening on our soil. I'm shocked it's not covered more often or even mentioned

I don’t see a problem with inmate firefighters... In fact, it seems like a coveted position and might encourage some people to behave better so they can get the job. However, I wish there was a way to enable them to get a firefighting position upon leaving prison. If they have a history of good behavior, it would be nice if that was included in the background check instead of a simple checkbox asking if someone has a felony.

I have no complaints about prisoners working, because it's been shown that, despite the poor pay, it lowers repeat offense rates by giving them some sort of skill. I would also imagine it is a lot less boring than sitting in a cell all day, even if the work isn't fun, it is something, and if they want to do it (also encourages making choices and free thought), and it benefits the prison or society in general, it's a win-win.

I think at this point, companies aren't unaware of the power of "online influencers", and are just abusing the fact that they'll take less pay for the same work when compared to more traditional means. If a Kardashian wants to charge millions, and a person like this James character would do the same job but for tens of thousands, they are of course gonna keep going with the thousands, and offer that to other, comparable online personalities, because of their collaborations previously. I can imagine that also playing into people who are new to sponsorships getting offered a rate and assuming something that low is just the norm.

rapist b&^$#(* : yay a judge follows the minimum sentence (as they should). prisoner workers: they do need to work, get experience and "normalization", but the system needs fixing, and no one is interested in fixing any of it, only cutting funding. truly irresponsible. Trump: ohh what a surprise, he is denying any fault with anything, providing no proof, and then blaming democrats for all the problems in the world. typical.

How about the fact that there is no proof that she didn't give consent, and how he was wasted to a point where he was throwing up. For all we know, she only became unconscious while he was fingering her, and he didn't realize that she was too drunk because he was wasted out of his mind. And him being convicted doesn't really prove that he was actually at fault, all it says is that the jury thought that it was more likely that he was guilty than not guilty.

I think the prison system has a lot of flaws, but letting inmates work (albeit at a severely reduced pay rate) is alright. You're letting them have purpose, letting them gain experience, and even earning a bit of extra cash. What angers me is exactly what you said with the EMT board; most inmates, regardless of their crime(s), do not get a second chance on the outside. Yeah, some people with their crimes are a "hazard" at best, but most people just made a mistake, or want that second chance and are automatically ruled out for that little box on the application. Here you have fine volunteers who are approved of by the state to provide a critical service, and now have ACTUAL EXPERIENCE, being thrown out because they were inmates. That part, right there is what's wrong..

I feel like we could give special recommendations for the inmates fighting the fires if/when they apply to be firefighters when they get out. they obviously would take some competence tests etc. but given the fact that they already have experience in firefighting, and they have served their time, it would only seem fair.

On the inmates, it's a great way to contribute. These inmates are putting their lives on the line to legitimately contribute to society. As for whether or not this should lead to a job opportunity when they get out, why not? It's skilled labor, they're physically fit, and are more importantly, experienced. Considering they're picking very specific inmates with rigorous conditions, I believe this could be an opportunity to really help reform some who are legitimately working for it. It's not like they're being allowed to enter law enforcement. They're entering a field where they can use their skilled labor to actual good use as EMTs and Fire Fighters. I have no issue with this.

I really don't wanna react about the wild fires but if he is indeed the one responsible for it, I don't see any reason why he is not deserving of life imprisonment...I feel really really bad about the people fighting the fire and and those who lose their lives.

I think those inmates are doing a great service by helping fight the fires. Their lives are on the line. No matter what they've done before (since the worst offenders aren't being included), it doesn't take away from the good work they are doing right now. I had no clue inmates had jobs they were paid next to nothing for. That sounds way too much like slavery to me. Why can't they get paid fairly for the work they did after they've served their sentence? It might give them a headstart that'll help them keep clean from then on. I'm sure some will be returning to jail anyway, but that's already a reality. This might reduce the return rate. It's worth testing, at least.
