Job Offers Pour In For Pardoned Police Hopeful

posted on June 17, 2015

The ordeal faced by Steffon Josey-Davis galvanized supporters of gun rights, and we celebrated when it was reported that he had received a full pardon. One question remained: After fighting for so long to regain his ability to join a police force, would he make the cut? Would potential employers be reluctant to consider such a high-profile candidate?

The answer turns out to be a very happy one: Josey-Davis reports having received letters of encouragement—and even outright job offers—from law-enforcement organizations across the country. That he fought so long and hard to be eligible for a life of service to the community speaks volumes of his integrity and drive. It appears that police departments got the message.
