SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —

Petition gatherers hit the streets of Sacramento on Thursday, trying to collect enough signatures for a new ballot measure that gets tough on crime.

“In current law, rape by intoxication and rape of an unconscious person and a slew of other crimes are not considered violent for our state,” said Beth Hassett, executive director of WEAVE, or Woman Escaping a Violent Environment.

WEAVE is a central player in the coalition known as Keep California Safe. The partners consist of crime victim advocates and law enforcement officials seeking to reverse some of the consequences of Proposition 47, which was passed by California voters in 2014.

“The No. 1 drug used to facilitate rape and sexual assault is alcohol,” Hassett said. “An alarming number of the victims that we serve through advocacy and counseling were intoxicated or unconscious when they were assaulted. They don’t remember what happened to them. They couldn’t consent to sex.”

Assemblyman Jim Cooper, a Democrat from Elk Grove, is also part of the Keep California Safe coalition.

“Rapists, child molesters and other violent criminals should not be released early from prison,” Cooper said.

    But I can’t find a list of donations so cannot tell if CCPOA donates. Maybe not since prison guards are responsible for a great deal of abuse.
