    That might be going a little far, but if they ever showed up to work with socks and sandals, that's immediate grounds for dismissal that no judge could deny.

    As for you not having to do anything with a company that would fire over this well congrats, you just limited your employment to 30% of employers, if you're lucky.
    it still might not be cause and the company likely has to pay her out but at the end of the day,

    So this jerk shooter escaped from a mental health facility, was caught. Committed assault on his wife and stepchild and wanted his mother-in-law dead. Gets dishonorably discharged and nothing put in the database and he was sold a gun.

    What a cluster**** of epic proportions.

    maybe these background checks should take a little longer to be a wee bit more thorough.

    The state-level check showed it, since he was denied a state permit. But the federal check passed since the air force "forgot" to enter the info into the system. Not sure which sources each pull from and why it showed on one but not the other.

    Not going to make a difference if the information was never entered.

    Of course they are comparable. Both did things that their bosses had to answer for. There is no other level than that. If the media starts contacting your boss about some stupid shit you did that caused a PR nightmare good luck keeping your job.

    If the information isn't entered in the system it doesn't matter. Everything is electronic now.

    It was never put in the national database. NICS.

    maybe they should check more than one single database.

    Yeah, I mean you can't make a decent argument that the background check there was remotely close to sufficient.

    Sure starting to seem like Trump has approved of the Saudis going to war with Iran.

    That should end well.
