Feds: Laws threw sex-offenders together, undercut GPS monitoring

Federal probation officers charged with supervising two Orange County sex offenders who are accused of four killings were overworked, underfunded and hampered by GPS systems that did not communicate, an internal inquiry concluded Wednesday. Full Article

“The report also blamed state and local laws for exacerbating oversight problems, including sharply restricting where sex offenders can live and pushing many offenders into homelessness.”


Too bad there is never a full analysis of the consequences of a feel good bill like Jessica’s law before it is voted on by the public. As they are finding out more and more with tragic results, none of these sex offender bills and ordinances turns out to be a simple “no brainer” when put into practice.

But let’s remember: nearly every newspaper in California wrote an editorial opposing Jessica’s Law because they predicted exactly what is happening. It got on the ballot because the California Republican Party put $6 million into it.

That’s is a good point. Even some probation officers recommended against it. It’s very confusing, when it comes to crime and punishment, and some other things, California could exist comfortably in the conservative south.

Good point B and well stated.

Yup! All this BS is finally collapsing under it’s own weight. When you consider all the laws, restrictions and ordinances and acts for a by and large non threatening government created lower class of citizen, and the rate of laws, etc that seem to be always popping up the outcome is pretty easy to see.

I find the comment that these two registrants were required to submit to polygraph tests, unannounced visits by probation officers, random drug testing, and sex offender rehabilitation counseling because they are considered “high risk” offenders ludicrous. I live with all these possibilities on a daily basis. My loved one had no physical victim and both of us have been subjected to this kind of treatment. He has been classified as “Low Risk” by everyone who has evaluated him. They have even stated in writing that he is very unlikely to reoffend. I just consider this a legal form of harassment… Read more »

You sound like you live in Orange county. My offense was a single count misdemeanor that didn’t even qualify me to the Megan’s law registry because due to the nature of the offense i’m deemed low risk as a matter of law. But none of that stopped my PO from treating me like i kidnapped and raped 10 babies and doing everything she could to violet me on any technicality to get me put in jail to lighten case load. I kept pleading not guilty and requesting a trial. I had 6 pictures and I was sure not all of… Read more »

You treat a person like a street animal…. you get a street animal…

In response to Michael: Thank you for your input. This all sounds so familiar to me. However, you are wrong on your assumption that we live in Orange County as we do not. I am just saying that because all jurisdictions in the state of California welcome the prosecution of sex offenders as it feeds the coffers of the prison/probation departments. Don’t know if this is true, but I have been told that for every probation violation of a sex offender, the probation department receives a monetary stipend upon the conviction of the violation. No wonder they are intensely looking… Read more »

Hannah. This sounds like the way the Europeans monarchs used to frighten suspects with torture until they confessed to something. Boy, we have sure come Al long way forward..

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
