Rebuked repeatedly by the Supreme Court, Brown sues to prevent voters from following suit

. . .. By Michele Hanisee . Governor Brown, having been rebuked multiple times in the past month by the California Supreme Court for “abuse of power” in issuing pardons and commutations, has now resorted to a lawsuit aiming to prevent voters from enacting common sense fixes to his badly flawed Proposition 57. The soon […]

California Supreme Court Interrupts Governor Brown’s Pardon Spree

California Supreme Court Interrupts Governor Brown’s Pardon Spree

. , , . . By Eric Siddall . Governor Jerry Brown’s historic and unprecedented eight years of pardons and commutations faced a rare roadblock this past week for abuse of power.  In a rebuke not undertaken by the California Supreme Court since 1930, the governor’s pardon of murderer Borey Ai was reversed. In 1996, Ai murdered Manijeh […]

Juvenile Rapists Cheer Governor Brown

Juvenile Rapists Cheer Governor Brown

. . .. By Michele Hanisee . We are compelled to write a follow-up to our blog “Legislature and Governor to Victims: Drop Dead” to specifically address how SB 1391 is a brutal slap in the face to victims of rape committed by 14- and 15-year-old juveniles. . The number of juveniles who are tried as adults […]

Legislature and Governor to crime victims: Drop dead

Legislature and Governor to crime victims:  Drop dead

. . .. By Michele Hanisee The utter disdain for crime victims by Governor Brown and the State Legislature has been apparent for some time now. Two bills signed into law this past week are punctuation points on that fact. SB 1391 will prohibit 14 and 15-year-old juveniles from being tried in adult court for […]

The “No consequences for crime” bill

The “No consequences for crime” bill

By Eric Siddall   It is hard to believe, but it is the truth; should Governor Brown sign into law SB 1437, criminals in California can no longer be punished for the natural and probable consequences of violent crimes they knowingly aided and encouraged.  SB 1437 was ostensibly introduced by Senator Skinner to abolish the application of […]

Once again, we told you so…..Prop. 57 and the Resulting Crime

Once again, we told you so…..Prop. 57 and the Resulting Crime

. . .. By Michele Hanisee . We told the truth about Prop 57 prior to the November 2016 election; that it would free violent felons years early. We said it would free sex offenders. We said it would free criminals whose sentences were enhanced due to prior violent strike offenses.  Well, the sex offenders already sued and […]

State Legislature Proposes Additional Protections for Criminals at the Expense Of Victims

State Legislature Proposes Additional  Protections for Criminals at the Expense Of Victims

. . .. By Michele Hanisee . Proving once again that they care more about the welfare of criminals than victims and the public, the state Legislature continues to assail us with legislation to prevent criminals from being held fully accountable. Two cases in point: Senate Bill 1279 and Senate Bill 1437. SB 1279 would […]

Property Crime and Prop 47| Like Being Hit By Lightning

Property Crime  and Prop 47| Like Being Hit By Lightning

By Michele Hanisee   Pop 47 ushered in an increase in property crime statewide because many theft offenses were made inconsequential misdemeanors that carried little likelihood of incarceration. Last month the Public Policy Institute of California conceded that Prop 47 was responsible for an increase in larceny rates statewide. That increase, they reported, was 9% higher than that […]

California needs criminal justice reforms to fight crime

California needs criminal justice reforms to fight crime

    By Michele Hanisee The “Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe Act of 2018″ will appear on the 2020 ballot, as the failure of some Registrars to timely validate signatures prevented it from qualifying from the 2018 ballot. The initiative will make commonsense changes to fix problems caused by AB 109, Prop 47 and Prop 57. While […]

Crime Initiative Thwarted by Registrar’s Bureaucracy

Crime Initiative Thwarted by Registrar’s Bureaucracy

By Michele Hanisee . It is rather disturbing that the statewide ballot initiative called the “Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe Act of 2018″ will not appear on the November ballot, not because it lacked valid signatures, but because a number of County Registrar of Voters failed to validate signatures by the deadline.  That failure has prevented this common sense initiative, which makes […]
