    Thats a tough question. I used to have jobs where I worked side by side with drug dealers and everything else, and I was doing regular work. One day I was in a tire factory, next working retail selling clothes. I remember one job a friend of mine rumored to be a drug dealer was fired when they put up metal detectors at our job. Why? He always carried a gun and wouldnt get rid of it, no matter what. You never know who youre next to. Heck, I remember there was a rumor that a guy cutting hair down the street sold drugs just because of the impossibly fancy car he drove for just cutting hair.

    I guess the difference between them and the ex-con is the latter just got caught. Knowing this, I dont know. I wouldnt want them to drive my children around BUT they need jobs too, and if I was in their situation Id want a second chance.

    It's tough because how are they supposed to get back into society and be productive yet I wouldn't want to work with a convicted felon either. I guess the nature of the crime plays into it. There's no way I'd want to be anywhere near someone who comitted a violent crime like rape or murder, but I might not mind being around a felon who committed a white collar crime.
