CA: Simi Valley’s Halloween law – not needed, not enforced, not fair (Editorial)

Simi Valley is again facing a lawsuit over its ordinance regulating sex offenders on Halloween, and we can cite a multitude of reasons why the city should not waste a single dime of taxpayer money defending it in court. It’s time for Simi Valley to walk away from this questionable ordinance and instead devote those dollars and energy to real problems in the city. Full Editorial

    They were doing tacit enforcement then actual enforcement. Must be election time again for someone there!

    I’m glad to see the paper’s editors are against this stupid ordinance…and have been ever since it came into being. Some common sense once again spoken on our behalf. Chip, chip, chip is what I hear on the RC laws.

    Hey Mr. Mayor: standing on the claim that you’ve never enforced the law doesn’t mean you won’t ever decide to come crashing down on a RC who believes it mean you never will. And we know that’s what it’s all about…suggest it’s a silly law, get a RC to cross the line, then nail him/her. Otherwise, we keep the law on the books? Why keep spending time and money to visit every RC every Halloween?

    Operation “Boo” was always a solution in search of a problem – just like Megan’s flaw. This is just a cheap and easy PR campaign the local authorities exploit to look good while doing essentially nothing..

    “It’s crucial and critical to check where the sex offenders live in your area before heading out.”

    I would never even dream of thinking of telling Janice or anyone who has a law degree what to do. They know volumes more than I ever will, and I trust them with my life!

    That said, I am (always have been, and always will be) weary of any settlement agreement where a government (city, county, state, etc.) simply gets away with saying they won’t enforce the law anymore. “We promise. Cross our hearts.”

    In my humble opinion, a promise not to enforce can no longer be an acceptable term of any agreement. It’s like putting a vehicle in neutral. And, as we are seeing here, it’s way too easy for them to throw it back into drive.

    I do understand that it may be better not to go to trial because we could always lose. So, maybe a promise not to enforce is better than trying and losing this case. However, these fascists cannot be trusted. I hope Simi Valley is required to pay dearly for this stupid move. More than anything, I hope these laws (especially the forced speech part) are found unconstitutional on their face! And I hope that it’s a decision that can spread through the nation.

    ENOUGH!
