FL: Florida House bill would require background checks for delivery workers

[orlandoweekly.com – 1/9/20]

Background checks would be required for delivery employees after the murder of a 75-year-old Boca Raton woman in August, under a bill filed Tuesday by Rep. Mike Caruso, R-Delray Beach.

Caruso’s proposal (HB 1129) would require all home-delivery workers to undergo background checks that include a search of a multistate criminal database and a search of the National Sex Offender Public Website, which is maintained by the U.S. Department of Justice. The checks would be required “regardless of whether such person, employee, or agent intends to enter a consumer’s home.”

    This article fails to state whether or not the accused has a criminal record. If not, then this bill would do nothing to prevent this crime from happening again.

      @ Agamemnon:. A very valid point you make, but at least it will continue to punish those who have already paid their debt to society. Because that’s the point of it, right? Slowly, bit by bit, they are writing into the legal codes “No second chances!”

      And how sad for the victim and her family that anything good or noteworthy that she did in her life will now be secondary in history to a law being named after her. Like it or not, she is forced to be an eternal victim first, anything else she might have done is secondary. ☹️ It seems to me that’s a horrible and permanent invasion of the victim’s privacy. Think about Megan Kanka or Polly Klass – what are they now forever known for? And how many can even remember their killers’ names?? 🙁 If you’re going to name a law after a victim, why not something good? The Mega Kanka Spirit of Community Law or the Polly Klass Pay It Forward Law – something that would memorialize the person in a nice way??
      (I understand that lawmakers may not want to provide additional notoriety to the criminals, but wouldn’t it make more sense to have such laws named after the criminal rather than the unfortunate victim? For example, the “Jeffrey Dahmer You-Are-Not-Allowed-To-Eat-People Law”??). Just a random thought.🤔

    Way to legislate more people into public assistance and homelessness.
