CA: Statewide crime initiative gains local support

[benitolink.com 3/28/18]

A statewide initiative to change portions of three crime-related laws is picking up steam in the local region.

The Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe Act of 2018 would change parts of Proposition 47, Proposition 57, and Assembly Bill 109 to reclassify certain “nonviolent” crimes as “violent” to prevent the early release of inmates convicted of crimes such as assault on a peace officer, rape of an unconscious person or by intoxication, and human trafficking of a child. A complete list of the purported “nonviolent” crimes can be found at the initiative’s website at www.keepCALsafe.org.

The initiative is spearheaded by the California Public Safety Partnership, a nonprofit organization that states it is a coalition of crime victims, law enforcement, business, labor, and child advocates working toward effective solutions to crime and violence. It is supported by groups including the Peace Officers Research Association of California, California District Attorneys Association, and the California Police Chiefs Association.

Additionally, the initiative strives to reform parts of the parole system to stop the early release of violent felons, expand parolee oversight, strengthen penalties for parole violations, reform theft laws, and expand DNA collection related to drug, theft, domestic violence, and other crimes. It needs 365,880 signatures by August to qualify for the November election.

    I am unable to find a legal business entity by the name “Keep California Safe”. I also can’t find anything registered under any name similar to “California Public Safety Partnership”. The California Secretary of State websites business entity search does not reveal any records for either of those names.

    Additionally, there appears to be two separate entities operating under the “Keep California Safe” moniker.

    Both of which include Inc in their names which is 100% prohibited unless they are in fact legally registered businesses in California.

    Looks like I get to start web sleuthing again. If I do, i’m certain I can obtain, verify and expose the identifies of the individuals behind both of these fake businesses.

      I was involved in incorporating a non profit. It had to be registered with the state and the board members names are public record. I don’t remember what the penalties where for not filing, but they are probably steep in California. California is now requiring disclosure for those who fund political ads. Let us know what you find, Nicholas.

    Now wait a minute, I thought there was initiative to help reduce te # of parole violations and to spearhead the rehabilitation process for the reintegration of convicts back into society by retraining the parole department and parole agents to help the ex offenders instead of violating their parole conditions for stupid minor infractions. Now all of a sudden they want to expand parole supervision as well as keep people locked for longer periods of time. the following sure doesn’t sound as though they are taking those steps seriously to me. Dan*^%*& I just read a case to that stated the requirements for a offense to be considered violent and it was a much higher threshold than what is being done now let alone what this bill is going to try to do. If I come across it again I will definitely post it because I know many non-violent ex offenders are classified (erroneously according to SCOTUS) as violent offenders when they are not according to the SCOTUS threshold…..
