CA: 2nd sex predator denied placement in East County home

[ – 5/20/21]

EL CAJON, Calif. — After weeks of protest from community members and local leaders, a judge has ruled that a second man deemed a “sexually violent predator” by the state will not be placed in an East County home.

Douglas Badger, 78, will not be allowed to live under supervision in the Mount Helix neighborhood near El Cajon, the San Diego Superior Court announced Thursday.

Sexually violent predators — sometimes referred to as “SVPs” — are people convicted of sexually violent offenses and diagnosed with a mental disorder that makes them considered likely to strike again. In Badger’s case, he was convicted in the 80s and 90s of holding up young male hitchhikers at gunpoint and assaulting them.

He was the second sex predator deemed unfit for the East County home in recent weeks. Neighbors praised the May 10 decision to deny 64-year-old SVP Merle Wade Wakefield placement in the community, but had continued their fight against Badger being moved to the same address.

That is a 78 year old man they are shunning. [ACSOL Moderators comment to KLM: Violent comment removed; Future comments will be blocked without valid email]

If the home is being supervised, what’s the problem. Oh, never mind. The snobs in the neighborhood think they’re better than anyone else.
So the question arises…if someone in that neighborhood commits a crime, do they have to move out of the neighborhood too?

Sounds like Megan’s law is crumbling right before our eyes this has to be a real pain in the ass for the San Diego county sheriff’s office they dont know what to do with this guy and it’s not just San Diego county it’s the whole state of California they dont know what to do with sex offenders anymore.
Thanks to the public sex offenders have become a burden on to Society and a major problem for law enforcement agencies.
The new California teir law SB384 has nothing to do with giving people a second chance they only passed that bill because law enforcement was overwhelmed with trying to keep 170.000 people in complaints Megan’s law has literally back fired on law enforcement agencies in California.

Good luck 😈

Georgia’s answer to the housing problem was to send registrants to live under a bridge. Literally.

Does San Diego want to be the next Miami? Homeless people forced to register living under bridges all because of a power tripping Dead beat drunk dad and princess Barbie. Miami isn’t a city to follow unless you like being a National embarrassment!!

Cheers San Diego

Wasn’t Mr. Badger the soon-to-be-released parolee registrant who we were asked a few weeks back to e-mail support of to the San Diego Sheriff’s dept.? Was this the final outcome?

What did people/the state do before this registry thing. Lol. Too funny.

All these neighbors are a bunch of pearl clutching crabs with their pinchers. How many people are committing crimes right now under your pinchers? Maybe all of you need to trade in your fragile shells and egos. Thank God the world isn’t your oyster because you all have ugly pearls!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
