Protests May Have Consequences

Idaho State Police troopers say 109 people account for a total of 192 arrests that have been made in relation to Add the 4 Words. Of those people, 46 have been arrested more than once. Ty Carson is one of two people who has been arrested six times. He has been at the Capitol every day for the last six weeks, making sure he is seen by legislators as a face supporting  gay rights in Idaho.  "This is my job," Carson said. "This has been my job for the last six weeks." But it's not his profession. Carson works for a property management company. "I'm lucky enough to know the owner of this property management company believes that this situation in the state of Idaho and the silence from the legislature is wrong, and they support me in everything that I'm doing to make it stop," he said. But attorneys warn that some employers may not be as understanding, especially when it comes to hiring someone who has several misdemeanors on their record/Deni Hawkins, KBOI. More here.

Question: Would you or your company hire someone who had been arrested 6 times as part of the ongoing Add the Words protests?
