A bouncer at a Boston bar was arrested and is being held without bail on murder charges, accused of stabbing a 23-year-old, recently discharged Marine after denying him entry into the establishment. The manager of the bar reported that no background check was conducted prior to his hire, as they had briefly known him from another bar. The manager also commented that he did not know his employee was carrying a weapon or that he would act violently. A full investigation into what happened that tragic night, as well as the establishment’s policies and procedures, is now underway.

The importance of better understanding who you are hiring with a thorough background check cannot be stressed enough. Being an acquaintance of someone is not a reason not to protect yourself and your business.
