Sharon Runner Demands Transparency from Corrections Department

SACRAMENTO – Senator Sharon Runner (R-Lancaster) has called upon the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to provide insight into its decision to terminate enforcement of the uniform sex offender residency restrictions under Jessica’s Law.

“I was alarmed by CDCR’s sweeping decision to stop enforcing the people’s will as expressed in Jessica’s Law,” said Runner. “The residency restrictions in Jessica’s Law provide important peace of mind for California’s families.” Full Article

Sharon Runner Demands Transparency from Corrections Department ————————————————————– “As an author of Jessica’s Law, I continue to stand behind the package of reforms that have made California’s communities safer,” said Runner. It would appear that she has continued to ignore the studies and research that have concluded that residency restrictions do not provide any measure of public safety, especially aimed at protecting children. We have constructed many safeguards to insure that children are safe in their classrooms from registrants, yet any given day you can ‘Google’ “Teacher Molested Student” to find out how well these policies are working against… Read more »

The problem with Mama Wolf Runner is that her sheep skin has holes in it. She is trying cover the lies that her and papa wolf has been doping. When the lights are turn on. the rats will run, in this case, Runner runing at the mouth. I hope she keeps doing it until all her sheep clothing is gone. Than it will be easy to see the evil.

She is an exposed demagogue and now is professing to know more than the collective experience and research of those who do this for a living.

We citizens of the state demand truth and integrity from Legislators!

Transparency?! It’s time for the voters of this nation to start demanding transparency from elected officials like Runner!! These vote-pandering politicians continue to promulgate unconstitutional and fallacy-based laws that enact endless punishment of RCs and cost millions in tax-payer dollars, all while doing nothing to increase anyone’s safety.

I wonder why everyone is being so polite as not to mention that the Runners used a fabricated research study (never happened) to quote the statistics that persuaded voters to pass their initiative. It sickens me that this woman is now a state Congresswoman.

She was alarmed at the truth. What is a person like this doing in office?

I guess arbitrary and random thoughts just get on ballot initiatives because she knows they’ll never fly when subject to legislative scrutiny.

Of course she is upset, she and hubby got slammed and made to look like the idiots they are, not she is flailing her arms and making a lot of noise, furthering the evidence of their stupity

” Senator Sharon Runner (R-Lancaster) has called upon the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to provide insight into its decision to terminate enforcement of the uniform sex offender residency restrictions under Jessica’s Law.” Oh yea? I think Sharon Runner needs to provide insight into her reasons for being so “alarmed” with CDCRs decision. I also think Sharon Runner and her kind need to wake up to the fact that not everyone believes what she believes and most people have their own opinions (people seem to be waking up to the truth and the facts). With the pendulum swinging… Read more »

Runner rolled the dice on passing laws based on false, misleading and missing information. When the smoke clears and the dust settles, the truth is revealed about the inefficacy of these laws and the true character of the people that push them.

This is why Tyranny of the Majority is a constitutional protection. We need laws to protect society from these types of politicians and the damage they do on many fronts.

It’s a little disturbing the way she seems to believe her own hysterical arguments as sound reasoning and truth in light of the fact’s about the ineffectiveness of the registry, presence restrictions, etc that have been coming out via the propaganda ministry (any lame stream media outlet). Her arguments for getting these laws passed were and are nothing other than pure sophistry. “Runner writes: “The public, the press and the Legislature have a right to a transparent explanation of the Department’s position.” And we the people, as well as the press and the Legislature, have a right to a transparent… Read more »

Another thing that would warm MY heart would be to see the “Lifetime GPS Monitoring” (per Jessicas Law) for ALL released registrants stricken from the books. It seems it should be easily challenged based on the recent SCOTUS ruling that this is a violation of Fourth Amendment Rights. I realize It’s not being enforced, nor was the residency restrictions beyond parole/probation. It would be nice to see our government do a little housekeeping and it’s entertaining to see George and Sharon Runners reactions. ——————————————————————- Jessica’s Law, California Proposition 83 (2006) Proposition 83 is well-known for requiring registered sex offenders who… Read more »

if you have time you can contact Runner at the link below

I tried to contact Runner at the above link, but she does not accept comments from people that are not in her district.

then we can contact the people in HER district

And contact your own legislator and most importantly the members of the public safety committee.

Send one anyway.

Her link looks at your required address and will not send your comment at all if not in her district. You would have to call or write her.

While you’re ‘demanding transparency’ chairnsummer how bout demanding transparency to the right of a fair public trial…..let the public know you are a fair honest public servant and demand orange county answer why they didn’t correct a trial record..why a backhall conference after prosecution witness accuser confirms defendant’s innocence and accuser’s motive ………the demand here ms. runner is prove your position of transparency and open orange county to answer that incident.

I would submit that the multitude of studies, statistics, constitutional violations, etc. etc. is not only transparent, but invisibly clear.

“The Rule of Law

The law that your Department seeks to preemptively repeal was approved by the more than 70% of California voters who supported Jessica’s Law (Proposition 83, 2006)….”

Ummmm….Someone needs to break it to Mrs. Runner that EVEN THE LAW must abide by THE RULE OF LAW.

What she failed to mention is that the law is based that on lies and guesswork and could be loosely (though appropriately) termed as “Voter Fraud”.

When all the facts are in, the truth becomes painfully clear to her and that is what is really making her sick.

Mob rule is not part of any law that will work for the objectives of trying to improve any situation in a free society. It did however work in 1933 and we all know what disastrous results ensued. What was the body count on that campaign?

Ms. Runner is a serial political predator and she should be subjected to lifetime registration for being a chronic liar and predator. She should not be allowed within 2000 feet of her constituents.

Is it just me, or is this bill attempting to permit local governments to act with no regard to the Supreme Court ruling from last month? It would enable cities to make these ordinances, leading only to further law suits. It’s time for the CA Supreme Court to clarify their opinion from March. This is just going in circles now, just as this type of politician prefers. #slowclap

You may be confusing two decisions by the California Supreme Court. The California Supreme Court on March 2, 2015, issued the Taylor decision which focused upon residency restrictions, not presence restrictions. In April 2014, the California Supreme Court refused to grant review of a decision by a California Court of Appeal which determined that local government laws restricting the “presence” of a registered citizen are preempted by state law. They are both positive decisions.

Thank you for the clarification Janice! Is there a possibility of “residence” overlapping with “presence” if a law/ordinance is written and passed with vague language? It seems residence is also presence. Or am I way off on this one?

I don’t know what language they use in law, but in standard English, in order to reside in a place, you have to be present there at some time. The following comments may not belong here with your question, but I spent a lot of time thinking about them and wanted to post them somewhere: Seems like language is often used to make distinctions that don’t reflect reality, like calling registration a membership, when the reality, as we on the registry experience it, is, it is blacklisting. A register is a place to hold public information, such as births, deaths… Read more »

Thanks for sharing Timmr. I appreciate your use of the term “blacklisting” to describe more accurately what is happening to “registered” citizens.

I think this is what you are trying to describe. 🙂

“Republican U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin, “McCarthyism” soon took on a broader meaning, describing the excesses of similar efforts. The term is also now used more generally to describe reckless, unsubstantiated accusations, as well as demagogic attacks on the character or patriotism of political adversaries.”

They had the House Un-American Activities Committee. Now we have SMART.

Another term associated with registration is ‘Matriculation’ though usually it’s associated with enrolling in some form of higher education (i.e. college, university,..).
Matriculate is a diminutive of the word matrix, which by definition is something that constitutes the place or point from which something else originates, takes form, or develops.
So, for anyone looking for an esoteric alternative to calling themselves ‘Registrant’ instead of ‘Sex Offender’ I believe the term Matriculant will work.

How about Planetary Matriculant?

Unfortunately, due the outlandish restrictions, my physical being is a predisposed terrestrial matriculant. But, the thetan shall roam the astral planes freely.

No, I am looking for a word that describes how we are treated. Matriculate refers to a privileged list, such as enrolling for a college degree or becoming part of the Scottish heraldry (hey, I like that, I have Scottish ancestry). I think you misunderstood me, I am not looking for euphemisms, words to make me feel good. The misuse of words by the courts is the heart of the problem. They use “registrant” or even “member” to downplay the hardships associated with the registry. When they want to justify the registry, we are “sex offenders” (implied, those likely to… Read more »

Disenfranchised (matriculants)?

have the CDCR response yet?

They won’t, and really there is no need to. The supreme court has made their ruling, and there is nothing CDCR can do about it. Yes, the ruling applies to San Diego county, but now anyone can make a case in any other country, and pretty much win be default since the supreme court set the precedent. Why waste time and money for something you will surely lose? Runner will just yap her head off to anyone that will listen for a while, then it will be old news. Also, the wording that CDCR used is very clever. It makes… Read more »

The Runner’s are drowning in their lies and they are grabbing anything to stay alive. I want them to talk more, which means. they will lie more and it will make it quicker for their followers see that they are liars and no good.

In other words. Welcome back home!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
