A jury convicted David Barrera of first degree murder last month, along with Patricia Perez. The jury never heard this, but Barrera had five violent strikes before this crime. In fact, the judge said Wednesday it seemed like his whole life was leading right up to this murder. Full Article

Stories like this get me so riled up that coffee seems redundant.
The US Marshall sweep outed this guy on camera and he was murdered by this POS couple. The a-holes who broadcast this story should be held accountable as well. If any harm came to my family as a result of a “news” story I would personally hold those involved directly responsible. Reporters and their bosses should think twice before creating situations in which a Registered Citizen has nothing left to lose.

I’m thankful David Barrera got 80 to life for the brutal murder he and Patricia Perez committed. Patricia Perez’s sentence is a bad joke as far as I’m concerned. According to a study by SFGate “inmates serving life with the possibility of parole spend an average of 20 years in prison ¹, ” no matter how cruel and unjustifiable the atrocity they commit. This particular case isn’t the first time I’ve read about bad results for the registrant after the police publicly expose them to their neighbors while doing “compliance checks,.” I find it odd the police departments doing these… Read more »

“He hasn’t been an angel, but just because you have prior strikes or you have a past doesn’t mean you’re guilty of this crime.”
I agree, but do you ever hear the media saying this about a registrant accused of a crime? I haven’t.


Never have heard that. In fact all you hear with any of us is the exact opposite. They will use your past to enhance their argument that you are a dangerous “sex offender” and need to be convicted and placed on the registry.

I do not understand why the courts have not been challenged on all of the dangers and punishment caused by registration. To the registrant and to family members.

And if I were related to the victim of this murder, I would be consulting the meanest attorney I could find.

WHERE is the ACLU??

margaret moon I think the ACLU is out there taking the easy and more socially acceptable cases. They aren’t cut from the same cloth as Janice and Chance and are not as willing to confront injustice and breaches in the constitution and bill of rights as Janice and Chance are. I think we may be hearing of them taking on more registrant issues in the future as it becomes more socially acceptable and less controversial. In other words; I don’t think the ACLU isn’t all they claim to be, so I’m not holding my breath expecting them to stand up… Read more »

margaret moon: I forgot to mention Matthew; I believe his last name is Massiakian, or something like that. He is the one that took on the Godinez case in OC and broke open the doors for the frontal assault on presence restrictions that Janice is leading. The Godinez case was about the man that went to a mandatory company picnic in Mile Square park and was arrested for going to a park. He’s another one to watch. He spoke at the last L.A. CA-RSOL meeting. I consider him, Janice and Chance in a league of their own who’s fight is… Read more »

I’m very sorry I missed hearing him.

The only people defending these sick individuals are molestors themselves. Are you seriously questioning the fact that these sick people should register? You seem more worried about THEM rather than the possible victims. It’s sad that these offenders have rights…

Many, if not most, of these molesters are victims themselves of abuse as children. The registry only serves to abuse them and their loved ones needlessly.
Education is the key that opens the door to positive change.
We need to focus on healing and restoring all victims and ending abuse of any kind.

Think about what you’re saying Sib. The perp who did the murder was a career criminal with a history of violence. But he’s suppose to be “above” the guy he killed? Seems to me Barrera’s “drinking buddy” paid his debt to society and was just trying to live his life under the radar. Vigilantism is the thing of movies like Death Wish II. But it has no place in American society. What I find really odd (and I’m very careful not to stereotype or make wrong assumptions) are the perps who are probably of Mexican descent since this did happen… Read more »
