Registered sex offenders to march on Carson City Hall to fight restrictions

A group of convicted sex offenders will march to Carson City Hall on Saturday to demand equal rights to visit fast-food restaurants, parks, libraries and other public areas from which they are now banned.

The protest is timed to coincide with the date of Martin Luther King Jr.’s voting-rights march to Selma, Ala., 50 years ago to emphasize that the issue is about a denial of constitutionally protected human rights. Carson imposes the state’s harshest restrictions against registered sex offenders.

“We really want to call it to the attention of the city of Carson that they indeed are violating civil rights of more than 100,000 people and their families,” attorney Janice Bellucci said. “We have multiple court decisions that clearly state that the Carson ordinance violates the state and federal constitutions.” Full Article

    So Robles is claiming that this constitutionally malnourished hamlet, led by a bunch of ill informed hate mongers, will usurp and supersede the findings of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the recommendations of the CASOMB? Why doesn’t he focus on California Law? That might be a good place to start as he took an oath to follow it when he was sworn in to office.

    I never knew he was that smart based on anything he’s said or done in this matter.

    And I never knew that Carson contained the resources beyond the recommending agencies that set policy at the state level to coincide with rehabilitation and reintegration efforts in the complex world of criminal justice.

    This doesn’t even get into the realm of imposing these draconian statutes on registrants whose cases were adjudicated decades ago. These constitutional violations are obvious to the least informed and educated of scholars in this arena.

    This is a crying shame and is exactly what happens when mob rule based upon stubborn opposition to a preponderance of research and findings, is let to run amok.

    More disastrous than anything is the fact that in his mind everything’s ok. It makes you wonder exactly how small this person’s brain really is and how the electorate has used hate as a platform so successfully with total regard to the basics of human rights.

    I will make one observation that is painfully obvious – when a simpleton like Robles has a big hammer in his hand, all the problems look like tiny little nails.
    The damage done to and the impacted lives of the children of the registrants are testimony to his handiwork. If he’s proud of this, then there are even more troubling indications of his disconnect in his blind pursuit of hate.

      I sincerely doubt he is proud of his little measures in regard to any real-world value they have of making people safer. If he is proud at all it’s for what he imagines is his evilly clever way of manipulating voters by playing to their fears. I suppose he thinks himself to brilliantly be the first politician to notice that he who shouts the most vile hatred at former sex offenders is he who will win.

      Yeah, yeah, you’re keenly perceptive, Robles. And very sick.

      Today’s protest in Carson was a momentous occasion! About 50 people showed up, stood up and spoke up by participating in the protest. The group included people of all ages and represented the diversity of California — Asians, African Americans, Hispanics and Caucasians. We first gathered at the Carson City Hall where we chose signs and banners, then walked about a mile down Avalon Blvd. to Calas Park (intersection of 223rd and Cluff Streets). KTLA TV filmed the entire event which was also captured by a photographer from the L.A. Times. We will post “stories” and photos as soon as they become available. About 300 feet from the park, at a place designated by “crime scene” tape, registered citizens stopped and the rest of continued into the park. Food and water was delivered to the registered citizens in a red wagon pulled by a 7-year-old girl and her mother. During the picnic at and near the park, L.A. County deputy sheriffs watched and waited. Before it was over, there were six cars full of them. When it was over, the sergeant in charge commented that we were both quiet and quick to clean up. Overall, it was a great day. More details to come tomorrow.
