For some reason…this song from “The Wizzard of Oz”…it just keeps playing in my head.

♩ ♫ Ding Dong The Wi… ♩ ♫ ♩ ♫ ♩ ♫

You get the idea.

I don’t live in California but I was thinking of another word that rhymes with ditch to describe her. Never understood going after 100k out of 40 million Californians to target bills just because registrants are feared, hated and get politicians votes. Aren’t there more important issues to focus on that improves the lives of all Californians?

Maybe Weiner scared the shit out of her with his tallness haha.

This is a very good sign for the new year. 2022 is looking brighter.

happy new year

And not a moment too soon.

Good riddance and may you rot in hell.

With Sharon Runner.

Would hell take her though or is the bar that low? Either hell or the landfill at least she’ll have company with the other trash.

I hope this didn’t post twice. Apologies for the length.

Letter I sent to her 11 months ago. I hope it served as one of a hundred thousand plus painful splinters in her brain.

Dear Mrs. Gonzalez:

I write to you today because I have been informed that you led the way in gutting and amending Senate Bill 384.

I understand that you are placed under much scrutiny, especially when it comes to re-election periods. I also know that you are pressured by special interest groups, in particular in this matter lobbyists representing specifically law enforcement.

I urge you to read the enclosed five page story written “by a daughter seeking kindness”. It is a first hand example that these registration laws do little to protect anyone. They actually do more in harming children as this story illuminates.

In fact, numerous empirical studies have shown that public notification actually INCREASES recidivism.  Perhaps this is what your law enforcement friends prefer.

Please refer to the research study “Frightening and High”: The Supreme Court’s Crucial Mistake About Sex Statistics, 2015, by Ira Mark and Tara Ellman. Here is an excerpt from that research paper:

The California Corrections Department recently examined cases of sex offender registrants who are returned to prison, and found that in 92 percent of the cases the reason was a parole violation, which is generally something that is not a crime for anyone who is not on parole-things like going to a bar or visiting a friend who’s also an ex-felon. Less than 1 percent of those re-incarcerated had committed a new sex offense. 

Here is another excerpt from a research paper titled “Not Always a Sexual Offender” by R. Karl Hansen: 

There is strong evidence that a) there is wide variability in recidivism risk for
individuals with a history of sexual crime, b) risk predictably declines over time, and c)
risk can be very low – so low, in fact, that it becomes indistinguishable from the rate of
spontaneous sexual offenses for individuals with no history of sexual crime but who have
a history of nonsexual crime. These findings have clear implications for constructing
effective public protection policies for sexual offenders.

I suppose if I was in your shoes it would be political suicide to provide some sort of avenue for your “lifers” to be removed from the registry. However, the research is clear. If a registrant remains crime free after release for approximately 17 years or more, he or she poses no more risk of committing a sexual offense than yourself or others within the community.

Thus, the tiering scheme passed via Senate Bill 384 is quite wide of the mark. No doubt it would be a daunting task to individually assess over 100,000 registrants, if not impossible based on your resources. However, legislation could be added or amended where a registrant who has no further record of crime and has actually proven to be a positive member of his community and society should be given the ability to be assessed in a hearing within our court system and subsequent relief to register based on the facts.. In particular, if the registrant has been in the community over a vast amount of time such as 25 or 30 years crime free.

Am I a registrant? Yes. I was falsely accused by a newly minted ex girlfriend. She was angry at me for not having the ability to pay her $3000 to avoid eviction. She also suffers from borderline personality disorder. Most of these circumstances were lied about by my ex in trial or suppressed by a maniacal prosecutor. The ultimate disposition was acquittal/dismissal. California PC 290 ignores such a process where any underlying conviction has been set aside and dismissed though, a vivid example that there is little to no risk associated with defendants who earned this relief.

Instead, SB 384 stares back at a penal code, dismissed or not, without the actual facts of the matter. If you read the penal code wording alone without the rest much distain would be the default to the lie.

The actual truth is that I’m innocent. I’m also a cum laude graduate of my alma mater, a high school honor graduate, a U.S. Army Veteran, a registered voter, been summoned for jury duty, a member of a most prestigious and elite professional organization, a keynote speaker for many community organizations such as Rotary Club and married to a beautiful and caring woman who knows this registration nonsense is malarkey.

In final, I don’t expect a response from you. If I would obtain a response I would be elated and appreciative. I know many people are asking for your time.

Please consider a sensible alternative. You and your peers have continued to kick the can down the road for many of your constituents. If they pose no risk, give them an avenue to regain their life back, even if it’s only a few years prior to them passing away.

Respectfully,

C J

Nice letter @CJ

That letter would hopefully cause someone in her office to think about it if she did not.

NICE CJ, there are MORE of us out there, I have a B.A. and was in PubSafeT for decades now an avid AARP mbr and AOPA and a Ham. But they don’t care about quality just numbers down. Very very patient and paused letter you wrote. I DO appreciate and hope others including our Attys see and read ALL of it as well. Thank You for posting. Get off the Reg. before we all pass on! Great Job CJ, Kudos

Thanks @dh. Much appreciated. Yes, there are so many of us. Don’t let them define us, defy them! The house of cards will fall. I’ll help see that thru or die standing tall, fighting the fight w my boots on.

Hmm, why would she work so hard to get elected just last year and then resign? She has always been very active in the labor activities of minorities. No, I think Lorena got caught with her hand in the cookie jar and her resignation was part of the conditions to keep it hush hush.

reform california files ethics complaint against assemblymember lorena gonzalez

sounds like she was negotiating her salary with the labor board before giving up her position, only to act shocked when she gets the position… unbelievable how stupid she thinks everyone us…

It would be a lie if I said we weren’t on the verge of doing
Snoopy dances.

Oh please, please let them actually investigate this!

I hope the door hit her Fanny. She sounded like a horrible legislator.

This member of the CA Assembly went out of her way to harm registrants by adding exceptions that prohibited registrants from legislation that would have benefitted them.

I’m praying that her whole family gets the karma she richly deserves. Her kind of terrorist is exactly the scum harming my spouse, children, and even friends occasionally. I don’t want them in my country.

She definitely went out of her way to move me from a tier 1 to tier 3…f her to the highest degree..and hopefully karma will catch up to her..

Glad to see you DO read some responses here, so many, thanks Janice for caring…and for the Article! Happy NY here in CA, Ciao! Thx Rog

To look at her, the door had a big enough target. She doesn’t miss many meals.

Go after what she does, not how she looks. That’s a low hanging fruit, no different than “Look at that guy. He definitely looks like a pedo”

I think that is great advice if you are dealing with humans. But Registry Terrorists (RTs) are not humans. There is no need to treat them as if they deserve any respect or kindness. They will NOT ever extend that courtesy to you, your spouse, or your children.

We all must stop being so meek and kind. RTs are garbage that deserve utter defeat and destruction. I want them to know that they will not oppress my family in peace, everything is fair in war, and to expect and believe that I will stab them in the back at every opportunity.

Don’t list me on a special big government harassment list and expect me to be a good citizen. Expect the worst you can imagine.

Replace Registry Terrorist with Sex Offender and my point still stands. Don’t go after people based on their physical condition.

Yes, and that is exactly what the terrorists do all of the time. It’s an expected and promoted behavior. So why is anyone concerned about doing it to them? They do X to people, the same can be done to them. We don’t need to do “if they go low, we go high”. F*** them every day and every way. Terrorists understand one thing.

In war, everything is fair.

Because we are better then them.

After all her hard work to destroy our lives and the lives of our loved ones? I’ll strike her and any other enemy at every vulnerability they have. This isn’t a high school debate where arguments should be limited to the given topic. This is war and, high or low, it should be fought at every level.

Okay, but don’t get mad when people say you look like a pedo. To them, you are the same enemy and worse. When you attack people based on their looks, that says you’ve run out of legitimate arguments, and there’s plenty to crap on her for what she’s actually done. Had she looked like an Amazonian runway model, her actions would still be just as shitty. Her being overweight doesn’t make them worse or better.

Absolutely. And I will do actually ANYTHING to them as long as it has little consequences to me or my family. They have begged for war.

I’m glad to see her go. She’s among the worst.

So much of this registry was not well thought out and an eye sore. Views good or bad. If you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen or is candid camera the justice league in reruns.

All this means to me is that it is one less obstacle for us to chip away the Registry. I am happy to hear this. Good news indeed!

Let’s hope this obstacle isn’t replaced by another. Armies usually have replacements.
