Felon here.

I got my hit when I was 19. That was back in 2001.

I have a wife, kids and own my own home now. I have not been able to have a real job since the conviction. I even moved to another state. I got the charge because I had a double edge knife in my car while I was homeless.

I didn't make it worse because I was in MI and Lived in WI. In WI the knife was legal. I found the knife with my metal detector.

I do a lot of shit under the radar in order to support my wife and kids. I wish i could get a tax paying job where I could pay my taxes and go about my life but it never lasts.

It always ends with some cunt putting the effort into finding out who I am and I get fired.

I deal with it and move on. I don't deal drugs nor do I steal. I just do what I have to do.

I'd be more than happy to work a factory job and keep myself to myself but it never works out that way.

I'm 36 now and I still deal with it. I just got fired 3 weeks ago from a decent enough job due to the conviction.

If you are young and have a clean record I beg you to keep it that way.

I didn't hurt anyone. I didn't deal drugs nor did I hurt anyone but for the rest of my life I have to pay for being in another state.

I'd kill someone to make it go away. Just to support my kids I'd kill to have a normal shitty job.

It is what it is
