WA: Sex offender scandal prompts fair to require background checks

PUYALLUP, Wash. — In the wake of news that several sex offenders had been employed at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup, fair officials decided to make some changes this year.

They’re going to conduct background checks for all employees of the company that handles the carnival rides and games.  That’s great news to local parents at the fair. “That’s outstanding,” said fairgoer Lisa Pryne. “That’s something you worry about. I have a GPS/Amber Alert tracking app on my phone and it alerts me and on the car ride here they popped up one after the other.”

Fair officials are being extra vigilant this year because last year three employees had to be let go because they were registered sex offenders and lied on their applications. Full Article

    If someone will hire you, you should have every right to do that job.

      And so we reach problem number 3,456,679 with registration laws. Nobody should have their place of employment listed on a public website. Also unless someone is extremely high risk their exact address and photo should not be provided. On second thought anyone who is not high risk should not have their name listed either. The only information the public should see is the offense (both the penal code/federal statute and a plain English explanation of what the legal mumbo jumbo means) and the county where people with those previous convictions live for a limited time, say the duration of parole, probation, or supervised release. All high risk people should be measured on a case by case basis and the public should only know what it must.

    What a non issue. Who was harmed, except the people who lost their jobs?
