This is a wonderful article! Is the sign Neon? Blinking? Lit? This is about the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard!!’ So, what if you live with relatives? Rent a room? Do you have to buy the sign? 1 percent recidivism? Never any Halloween issues? 30 years later? This needs to go all the way! I’m angry!

RADIO INTERVIEW with KOGO – 30 minute interview w/ audio link: http://www.kogo.com/onair/demaio-report-56776/demaio-report-commentary-lawsuit-seeks-to-14038184

Janice runs rings around KOGO inverviewer.

That KOGO radio host doesn’t seem to be very smart; I think it’s really obvious he doesn’t know when he is being lied to. After the interview with Janice ended and she was no longer able to offer rebuttal this guy went off the deep end, sounding like he was just making things up. I got the sense that he was trying to rabble rouse his listeners. It’s sad that there are an awful lot of people out there like him. This is why I use the word “stupid” so much in my posts. That radio host is stupid! he… Read more »

He lost the San Diego Mayor race, so now he is looking for a way to look popular.

The guy obviously is biased against people forced to register. This sounds like he is handicapped by fixed ideas and knows everything. I don’t know if he is simply ignorant or willingly ignorant; either way, he shoudlent be talking about something he obviously knows little about.

I listened it too, sound like he was treading mud.

Damage control. Janice did such an excellent job of pulling out treats stating the case against the signs that De Maio had to spend twice as long denying everything she said, digging into the collective bag of moral panic, to produce every myth he could come up with. The good thing is he had only rotten eggs in his bag.

The KOGO radio host already has an agenda in his head. He has his information, but he doesn’t acknowledge the facts that Janice produces. Evidence is all one can go on. Unreported is an unsubstantiated information. Lost into the discussion is the fact that the KOGO radio host does not take into consideration about the vigilante story – nor does he know that Janice’s first interaction with any registrant is Frank. The KOGO radio host does not treat registrant like people. That is mental battle that Janice and all registrant face everyday. It’s okay for all rights to be stripped… Read more »

To Ms. Bellucci and CA RSOL: Thank you for defending our rights.

Once again, Ms. Bellucci and CA RSOL fight the powerful and corrupt scam artists in ‘our’ government. This time, the fraudsters at CDCR. In our society, I should hope logic and truth prevail over the hysteria abound at CDCR.

Today get rid of the stinkin’ shaming signs that are limited to people on parole for one day of the year, and that someone would have to pass by the house to see.
Someday eliminate the big rotting electronic Albatross, the public registry, hanging around most registered citizen’s virtual necks, even those not on parole, who have never committed another crime of any kind; which hangs on a person until death, and which can be seen by everyone via the computer screen without even having to set foot out the front door.

I clicked the MSN link — nothing there about the case. By the way, there are a lot of stupid comments appearing at the end of these articles. Where is everybody?
