why is convicted bank robber on parole driving for the salvation army picking up donations? I would not want this man coming to my door or in my house, I do'nt care if it is for a good cause. Do'nt they have some kind of background check?

If the salvation army were to pay their drivers a decent wage they would not have to rob a bank. they get $8.00 an hour and really work hard.
