    I really like how all these news outlets claim that all these laws only apply to high risk offenders what a bunch of bs get it right these laws apply across the board to every rso no matter what I guess it makes them sound less draconian

  2. Justice For ALL

    So now they are going to reward vigilantism? That is just incredibly harmful. Now we are so dangerous that there is a cash reward for just skipping probation/parole. Wow, I really don’t believe it.

      I have a feeling there will be plenty of idiots visiting the Megan’s law website. All of them trying to make a buck. If you read the comments that follow the article some people already are talking about registrants absconding probation/parole as bounties. I have a feeling this will cause more issues than fix any problems. Up to $100,000 for 10 registrants… I guess politicians think you can’t put a price on the public’s safety. If these registrants didn’t have to live in the desert away from family or have to live on the streets maybe their p.o.s would know where to find them.

    This is kind of a disturbing article. While expunging my issue 13-14 years back, I sat in the court and observed some of the cases prior. Ie: probation violation/3rd probation violation/re offended while on probation ect. As such, if you truly new the number of people who violate ect while on probation, you would pass out! Gang members, thiefs, drug dealers ect. LA, get a life. I would literally look out to get 10k. Maybe this would result in vigilante acts? Or, create more havoc got the parole trying to do the right thing and drive them underground. Or, maybe create the idea of some person creating a new sex offender website that’s lists the names and addresses of those on parole or probation? Very disturbing. As mentioned before, these laws and proposed legislation will one day throw someone over the edge ie: crime spree/kill someone ect. Wake up California

    This is totally ridiculous; I almost can’t believe it. The only thing this law will do if passed is drive registrants even deeper underground and create dangerous and life threatening situations, thus further harming children and families. This is more proof that supposedly responsible people don’t think or much care a whole lot when advancing their careers.

    pass an unwritten law to ensnare corrupt politicians and have all the people breathing down their necks. that would be a good thing and will probably help public safety at the same time.

    So this change was incited by several RSOs in Antelope Valley who went off radar? Correct me if I’m wrong: isn’t that Sharon Runner’s district??
