Let’s do a comparison for arguments sake.

If a known drug dealer were to kidnap someone and murder them would the reaction be to change laws dealing with drug dealers? Should the answer be no then think carefully about the next question.

Why when a former sex offender (former because to be a current sexual offender someone would need to be doing sexually offensive things) kidnaps and murders someone is the push on sex offenses instead of murder?

Let’s say the drug dealer tortured the person they kidnapped prior to killing them and the former sex offender raped the person they kidnapped before killing them. Which is worse? Torture or murder? Rape or murder?

Does this mean the king’s are in support of SB-695

I thought this article was going to go badly, but, instead, I can see that these folks would probably support a tiered registry. This could be a big help getting this passed imho.

Chelsea King’s case should bring attention to where the Static-99 “tests” failed:

http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sdut-panel-grilled-on-form-used-for-gardner-2010apr01-story.html

The man who murdered Ms. King scored a 2 on the Static. Even under the Static-99R, he still would have scored a 2! (For your information, a “2” equates to a “low-moderate risk.”)

Remove the Static-99R from the proposed tiered registry! The Static-99R is pseudo science that cannot predict human behavior!

“But Nina Salarno-Ashford, a board member for Crime Victims United of California, called the tool unreliable because its approach fails to give weight to probation reports, psychological evaluations or victim statements.

‘She also criticized its failure to account for times when sex crimes are pleaded down to lesser offenses.

‘It does not give you the picture of who the individual is that is coming out of prison,’ Salarno-Ashford said.”
