(in the voice of Peter Griffin).... Soomeeetimes... Jim, I don't.. believe I, know you.
Out of your typical posts I can't tell if you're even serious on this one, though the writing tone seems serious.
There will always be "Bullsh1t" like this. However, now days there is NO FREAKING EXCUSE! Haunt owners have every ability to background check their employees / volunteers / actors.
When I start advertising for volunteer actors at our haunt this year, I will state to them "We need to become friends on facebook...like.. right now, so I can do a personal background check" If they refuse, I'm going to send them packing. Reason being, if we wait, that gives them time to hide anything they want to. If they refuse, I'm just going to assume they're not good for dealing with people.
I have seen many actors get hired in for haunts and different charity events and attractions and let me tell you, it always seemed like just a moment away from cops being called, or an ambulance or something. People always harassing others, patrons etc. Doing stupid $hit with dangerous tools, you name it. Why? Because the authoritative figures aren't always around. And MORONS ALWAYS be themselves when "the boss isn't around"
All I can say is there is no excuse for haunters to have so much trouble. They can do all kinds of background checks, even legally for a few bucks to make sure they're not hiring felons, sex offenders etc. No, not all offenders, morons and idiots have a previous record, but it helps, no doubt.
