The Left loves how Europe operates, and here is yet another “Coming soon to America” stories.
Right now, legislation is being written where you cannot ask people about their criminal backgrounds.
And here may be the reason why. According to Wales Online,
Perverts, drug dealers and gun men have all applied for teaching jobs in Wales – despite being barred from the profession.
A total of 410 of 21,700 job seekers in 2014/15 had previous convictions, according to a Freedom of Information request.
Those 410 were guilty of 915 offences, according to the figures.
They included convictions for exposure, wounding, inflicting grievous bodily harm, supplying cocaine and cannabis, and possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
Others had committed cruelty to animals, had helped minors buy air weapons and were guilty of racial abuse.
Across the country, applicants had 139 convictions for drink driving, 55 for ABH and 53 for shoplifting.
It’s no different here in America. Just recently the University of California at Berkeley found 19 faculty members guilty of violating their sexual misconduct policy. That’s right, not sexual “conduct,” as they know those fools are going to misbehave.

David Evans, secretary of teaching union NUT Cymru, said: “It is impossible to stop people from applying to become teachers, but of course the point of background checks is to ensure that the correct information is available, to judge if someone is an appropriate candidate or not.
“If an individual is a new applicant to the profession they will be subject to a suitability check by the Education Workforce Council, who will undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check.”
That replaces the CRB – Criminal Records Bureau – check.
“If convictions are shown, they will then be subject to a suitability investigation and possibly a hearing,” Mr Evans said.
“The purpose of this is to ensure that sex offenders, drug dealers and violent criminals are weeded out of the system before they are employed at schools.
Did you get that. They want to “weed out” the violent offenders. Sort of like America’s current policy on illegal immigrants and refugees. Let them all in, then we can “weed out” the bad ones.
