Janice's Journal

Janice’s Journal: Angry Uninformed Members of Public Attack Registrants’ Home

It’s happening again.  A group of angry, uninformed members of the public are attacking a home where registrants on parole are living.

The location this time is Fairfield, California, located between Sacramento and San Francisco.  The angry mob’s weapons of choice are loud protests outside the home as well as the posting of signs at the home, down the street from the home and even at the places where some of the registrants work.  

Members of the angry mob have also honked their car horns for 15 minutes or longer at a time outside the registrants’ home in the middle of the night.  And some city employees have joined the angry mob by sounding the horn of a fire truck and the sirens of police vehicles.

In addition, members of the angry mob have followed some of the registrants while they are riding a bicycle or driving a car.  And one member of the angry mob has posted a web cam focused on the registrant’s which can be viewed by the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Some or all of these acts may or may not be unlawful.

What is clearly unlawful, however, is the angry mob’s use of the registrants’ profiles from the state government Megan’s Law website which they have posted on their website as well as printed on yard signs.  What is also clearly unlawful is the angry mob’s use of those profiles in fundraising.

Three members of the ACSOL board of directors met this weekend with the registrants under attack and identified for them the different types of support available to them, including legal services and emotional support.  The ACSOL board members also explained there is no simple or quick solution to this problem.

Also this weekend, ACSOL notified the angry mob in writing that their activities are in violation of state law and would be reported to the Department of Justice.  Further, ACSOL offered to meet with members of the angry mob in order to share with them the truth about registrants on parole, including the fact that their rate of offense in less than 1 percent, according to the CA Department of Corrections.

The stage has been set.  There will be more acts.  Stay tuned.

In the meantime, please know that the owner of the residence under attack has agreed to continue providing housing to these registrants on parole.  For that he is to be commended and supported.
