Dozens of transportation workers have been denied access to Navy bases on the East Coast because of their criminal histories since more stringent rules were put in place following a fatal shooting aboard a destroyer in Virginia, according to figures provided by the Navy.
A civilian truck driver with a criminal record shot and killed Petty Officer 2nd Class Mark Mayo aboard the USS Mahan in March after driving onto Naval Station Norfolk, walking onto a pier and onto the ships quarterdeck. The Navy said Jeffrey Tyrone Savage disarmed a sailor guarding the ship and used her weapon to fire the fatal shots at Mayo, who jumped between the disarmed sailor and Savage. Savage was later shot and killed by Navy personnel in a shootout aboard the ship.

Its racist to deny ex-felons access to Navy bases. We need more reparations! To the MSM, common sense security measures are aggression against misunderstood criminals and should be lifted immediately.
And I'm sure the physical standards are exactly the same regardless of gender. /s Might as well not have anyone guarding anything.
“Dozens denied Navy base access due to past crimes”.........
GREAT! Now we can keep odumbo and a lot of other politicians out as well. How many of them have “criminal records”?
I think you would be greatly surprised.
Free pass if your muslim
Savage's criminal record included pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter in Charlotte, N.C., in 2008 for shooting a friend in a car and leaving his body on the side of an interstate. Prosecutors originally charged Savage with murder and intended to seek the death penalty if he didn't plead guilty to the lesser charge. Savage's criminal history also includes possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.
Makes you wonder what the Navy does considers serious.
These friggin’ IDIOTS.
The man who did the shooting PASSED a background check! He wasn’t seen as a threat until he started shooting! He had a clearance!!!!
