Getting a job, finding housing, and pursuing higher education often depend on passing a background check, which will reveal a criminal past.

As Americans, we treasure our civil rights. Our founding fathers delineated the personal liberties that every citizen of the United States should be able to count on as our birthright.
Preserving these rights requires our constant vigilance and the willingness to question any act by a government entity that is not in keeping with the spirit of our state and federal constitutions. If we allow a government or any of its agencies the power to violate our civil rights, we have ventured onto the slippery slope that could ultimately lead to tyranny.
