RI: Law aims to prevent sex offenders from working near kids

PROVIDENCE, R.I.

“The only onus on the business is to ask the question, there is no fiscal cost unless the business hires the person knowingly,” Attorney General Peter Kilmartin said. “If the employee lies to the employer, [the offender] will be subject to a five year felony and a 5,000 dollar fine.” Full Article

    What is this fire someone because he might do something? Where is the logic! Are they going to fire someone that has a DUI and killed someone because he might get drunk? Are they going to fire someone that shot someone because there is a chance he might do that again? Well are they?
