For all those worried that republicans are the most anti-registrant, note that all the California senators involved in this latest attack through legislation are Democrats. Neither party is friendly towards registrants (period).

Looks like Democrats trying to earn some points in their heavily suburban Republican districts. I think location, location, location has more to do with this than party affiliation. But you are right the disease permeates both parties.

Wow. Insightful writing by Con-Con. Just whipped out the old red pen and deleted anything in the existing law that she didn’t like. I guess she didn’t hear about the recent CALIFORNIA decisions which prohibit “blanket” applications of residence restrictions or presence restrictions, which is pretty much exactly what this is. A law was already in place, and ALREADY BEING ABUSED (see: Fontana), and Con-Con wants to go back up the blanket restriction hill. I would have actually given her a little credit for a well thought out bill (emphasis on the word, “little”), but this is just a hack… Read more »

Wow! No exception to allow a parent/grandparent to meet with his/her child’s teacher, school administrator, etc? No provision for attending a high school graduation? Clearly unconstitutional on so many levels.

Even worse: No exception to allow us to attend our polling place to vote misinformed and narrow-minded public “servants” like her out of office as quickly as possible. We must all vote and spread the word! (Now that there are three to five million RSOs and family members in the US, we can make a difference).

Clearly another bill pandering to public fears based on urban myth statistics.

Senator Leyva is up for re-election in two years. Hmmm…she’s got my attention.

Why wait. A recall is definitely in her future, sooner than later.

Make her show compelling evidence as to why this bill is needed (as per federal court orders in the 4th circuit). As we all know, this is in response to a nonexistent problem.

She is making a huuuuuge push for reelection as seen below. Time to shoot down this bill and show the taxpayers the fraud, waste and abuse of the system she participates in, e.g. knowing spending state tax money unwisely on efforts that will be turned back in committee. Obviously, since Fontana is in her area, she was following the school situation closely there. Elected to represent the 20th State Senate District on November 4, 2014, Senator Connie M. Leyva is serving her first term in the California State Senate.  The district includes the cities and communities of Bloomington, Chino, Colton,… Read more »

Maybe she is redeemable. Her district is majority latino, and they are supposed to care about family. After looking at all the excellent posts on this article, she may see another side.
What is the bad law reoffense rate for politicians with first offenses? There should be a test developed based on a group of former bad law offenders, measuring 10 separate characteristics as existing at introduction of said bad law. Then make it a requirement of office to assess that risk.

“In 2006, voters passed Proposition 83 to prohibit a person who is required to register as a sex offender from living in specified places, including within 2,000 feet of a school or park where children regularly gather.”

Nothing like quoting a law that has been struck down as unconstitutional. What a crock of crap!

I can’t find the text of this bill anywhere, just the PR blurbs from her office. Does anyone know if she is attempting to cover higher education campuses, too? That would be interesting, wouldn’t it? Actually, I would really enjoy that as in “Come on, come on, come on, just TRY it!”

Why does the article say it is “important legislation”. Says who?

I think it is a typo. It should read “impotent” legislation. No sane person would think this important.

Another Elected official that will do any thing but tell the true facts, she and the media have all been the cause of so many problems for RCs. The media has distorted facts and exploited the myths for so long most of the public believe all this bull. I really think sometimes with the New prez coming in someone need to explain the real facts to his staff, hell he hates the media as much as I do. I hope he drains the swamp and kicks many of these lying media nuts and lawmakers to the ground whether it helps… Read more »

You mean the guy who believes everthing said on the internet is true, and who on CNN repeats the myth that child molesters can never be “cured”? That guy is going to save us?

It does seem unlikely, doesn’t it? I do think it is humorous how people have mapped all of their hopes onto someone as bereft of human decency and as transparently insincere as Donald Trump, though. He’s become all things to all people, kind of like Kim Il Jong was or as his son Kim Jong Un is becoming. I can’t wait to see his court appointments. He will probably try to appoint a general.

LOL

Timmr, I did not say HE would save us, I said I hope he drains the swamp of the media and the lawmakers that lie. I also said I wish someone would reach out to his staff and explain the TRUE FACTS. Also he can not do any worst than has already been done. I for one think both of our choices were nuts but he has helped the market for now. The TRUTH would set RCs free if the facts were told and not the lie. In the mean time I will continue working, hunting and fishing in that… Read more »

The only thing that Connie Leyva will be known for is proclaiming that the children of Former Citizen Detainees have now been stripped of their American citizenship like their parents. Children of sex offenders do not matter to Connie Leyva, she feels they are as filthy, perverted and disgusting as their parents and are not worthy of the same benefits as the good kids in California schools. We must do everything we can to educate the children of sex offenders to show them how unwanted and disgusting they are and how the government and the people of California are their… Read more »

Just found this bill, SB18 that was introduced this last week that might do us some good to support (http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180SB18). I think this can add to the argument that the children of registrants need to be allowed to have their parents involved in their schooling. It says that these rights have to be applied “evenly and equitably” to all children. Here is the text: SECTION 1. (a) The Legislature finds and declares that all children and youth, regardless of gender, class, race, ethnicity, national origin, culture, religion, immigration status, sexual orientation, or ability, have inherent rights that entitle them to… Read more »

“The right to parents, guardians, or caregivers who act in their best interest.” Thus could be dangerous. The state may see this as a mandate to replace parents who in their view, don’t make the grade as good parents. It all depends on who decides what is best interest.

Timmer – they already do this if Child Service is called in, etc….a true nanny state in the right sense of the word. As you aptly pointed out, it is up to another being to decide the measure.

Speaking from my own experience.

Clearly, this bill has not been written by a constitutional law scholar. The sloppy use of the term “right” belies an ignorance of rights already accorded everyone and, by laundry-listing “rights” as has now become fashionable by progressives and victimists, as if every instance of a “right” must be exquisitely delineated in order to make it true, threatens to undermine both the concept and integrity of fundamental rights already frequently denied us and, especially, children.

It’s time to call out these sanctimonious, high-minded virtue-signallers.

Everyone has a right to their own fears despite that they are – in most cases – based on distortions such as the ones Con-Con latches on to.

There is no right, however, to taking these distortions, fears and panic and use them as a foundation for more useless legislation that is clearly unconstitutional.

I repeat ad nauseum – if ignorance were a crime, folks like Con-Con would be in deep doo-doo!

Here is what you put out there to counter this:

The ONLY stories I hear about people molesting or having sex with students involve teachers and coaches and teacher aides etc.
I hear NO stories about anyone who is a currently registered sex offender or not, much less a parent of a student on that campus, coming on the campus to attack students.
Case closed.

Unfortunately, this can be used as a counterargument to your claim. The assaults occurred at college campuses here in the Bay Area. He is an RC. I guess he’s among those less than 3-5% who reoffend.

http://www.mercurynews.com/2016/12/14/sunnyvale-former-tennis-instructor-suspected-of-molesting-young-girl/

These stories are what hurt our cause. Even if the guy is innocent, he should’ve known the risk of being an RC and working with juveniles. Easy target for accusations.

NPS
Nothing has, or ever will be 100%.

I never claimed anything was 100%. But I agree with you. Nothing is absolute Zero either, and the person I responded to made that claim. The case I posted is a reminder of that. And it’s cases like these that desperate politicians like Leyva use to validate their bills.

I agree with you. Please don’t get me wrong. Peace✌️

So Con-Con is pushing this which she knows is against reasoning and recent court decisions that render these laws unconstitutional . She is doing this because she does not have the wits to educate the Fon-tucky school board which is an oxymoron of its own doing. She will go down as a martyr praised by the group for giving it a good college try. She is unfit to serve in a public service capacity but really good at the tenets of mob rule. She will find her place among those who use lies and distortions to further their causes, but… Read more »

No, I am pretty sure she isn’t that smart. I think all she is doing is taking a page, a VERY dog-eared page, out of the politician’s handbook on how to look tough on crime without actually doing anything.
