I for one would like to know how this will help the inmate or the ex-con upon returning to public life. THIS IS A BAD LAW if it is not in anyway helping them return to the public. They have a hard enough time just getting a job when they return to the public life and they are asked if served anytime in prison. DO YOU WANT TO JUST PUT MORE BACK IN PRISONS-JAILS? I for one believe that all should be erased after someone has served their time in prison. Why put a scarlet letter on them? They have an id already so why this extra ID if it is not to hinder them even more?
