Yes, it's in black and white. Richard White would not hire him because of his background. Whether the charge was dropped or not, it is still on his record as him being charged with it. Either way, many departments require a lie detector test and can decide to not hire a person based on their background if it contains drug use/selling amongst other things. Even if the charge was dropped, it could still be means to keep him from getting hired as it obviously did. So what's in black and white besides the fact that he has a record and was not hired? Casey Anthony was cleared of murder charges...does it mean she was not guilty? Who knows. Does it mean it could keep her from getting a job with a reputable company? Certainly! Joe Dirt with a drug charge could most likely not even get hired at companies such as ADM or Progress Energy--do you think he would get hired on as a Law Enforcement Officer? Well, the case proves..most likely, not!
I would be thankful for a job. If there's so much more to it, why is it not out by now?
