I believe the Fresno law enforcement group who went door-to-door should bear legal responsibility for this murder, as well as the perpetrators. Where is the ACLU and other agencies who should be objecting to these “shows of strength?” They accomplish nothing for public safety but cause great danger to registrants and their families, property, etc. This article is proof, and it’s certainly not the first of its kind! The “sting” was nothing but a publicity stunt to justify the existence of the gestapo and this man has given his life for their “stunt!”

Actually, I just noticed that the story is from 2012. I did followup searches on Berrera, Perez, and the registrant’s name, but I couldn’t find any disposition to this case. Amazing, this case is still cold, and the media has buttoned up on it.

I will make some phone calls to local media and see if there is anything that has transpired.

Anyone wonder why I’m so anti compliance check? There are other reasons, but murder is on the top of the list of reasons why I’m so anti compliance check.

Now this is reassuring…living in the Fresno area. Another reminder to all of us, watch your back, don’t let down your guard.

CA RSOL commends the prosecution of two individuals charged with the vigilante murder of this registered citizen. Registered citizens are being targeted by vigilantes just because they are registered citizens. The attacks are often based upon the mistaken belief that they pose a current danger to society. Those who attack fail to understand that the sex offender registry includes individuals who have committed a broad range of offenses, from sexting and streaking to violent rape. They also fail to understand that most registered citizens in California are required to register for their lifetime which means that many registered citizens offended more than 20 years ago. This registered citizen is just one of many who have been brutally murdered by vigilantes. He joins Michael Dodele (2007), Bobby Ray Rainwater (2012) and Donald Crisp (2013). This violence must stop and its prosecutions such as these that will help it stop.

Here’s my experience with Fresno County, City and neighboring Clovis;
tires slashed two times, garage windows shot out, house egged, telephone death threat.

The law enforcement response…coincidental, not related. Called local sheriff’s office, filed a complaint about the death threat, no follow up, no response.

So I can’t arm myself, I can’t protect myself, can’t legally carry pepper spray, BUT, since I work on homes, I do have wasp and hornet spray with me, shoots 20+ feet, a lot shorter than a bullet, but a lot longer than a knife. Watch your backs out there.

FOLLOWUP:

I just called the news desk, who indicated that Berrera and Perez are on trial for the murder, and they are undergoing jury selection. I mistook the story earlier as if the crime just occurred, rather than jury selection for the alleged murderers.

So the trial is just starting. I can’t seem to navigate to the case for Berrara or Perez, so maybe someone here can get better luck.

If they are convicted of MURDERING this person they will most likely be released at some point. They will not have to be placed on any published list will they? The state should be sued and the I have no idea why the ACLU is mention time and time again when they have really done nothing for RSO when clear cut violations of rights are occurring with RSO!

It seems to me that the registrant’s family could sue the county and/or state for wrongful death by having a registry that is accessed publicly that doesn’t require ID of those making requests.

The argument could be made if these people must be on a public registry that threatens their lives they should be granted the right to carry a concealed weapon.

True you can have wasp spray but you can also have a pump super soaker squirt gun loaded with 50% Tobasco sauce and 50% water.
In South Carolina felons can own black powder muzzle loaders. You can buy a 6 shooter muzzle loader from cabelas and also you can own a precharged Air Rifle.

It’s Called Dry Snitching in Prison & You could get Hurt really bad for doing it in there the LE just threw Their Badge behind it & said Meh…So ,,WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO MY GANGS BIGGER! Is what it is just callin’ it as I see it….They’re just another prison gang not behind bars & with NO Rules, That they listen to. Some cops are good,,But Very Few in between are of an understanding Nature I have met a couple that’s IT!

Reading about this makes me sick to my stomach. I have come a long way (8 years ago) from when I was sentenced for a SO, 7 months in jail and 10 years probation. I am transferring this fall to a university to continue my education and although I will not be living on campus, I will be living among other students and stress about the random visits. I’m going to attempt to go back to court to get my probation reduced from the suggestion of my probation officer and hope I can at least fight that. I have done a lot of good things with my life and for others as well. I am remorseful for ever putting a child in harms way, but there is not a day in my life that goes by that I don’t fear for my life. Last year I was put through a major media witch hunt with speculations of what my crime could have been just because I put myself in the limelight trying to better myself. Once I get off probation, I will fight to work with RSO’s to not live in shame, but to thrive and prosper. I’m sure I will get some negative comments, but that is okay. I’m good with my life now and can only set my sights on a better future.

You are reformed. Please stop using registered sex offender to describe yourself.
