California Department of Corrections Rehabilitation Programs Documented to be Total Failure

. . .. By Michele Hanisee . You won’t find much disagreement that it is good public policy to offer rehabilitation programs for inmates to increase the odds that they will be law-abiding citizens after they’re released. Good intentions, however, are not enough. The success of rehabilitation programs depends on several factors. One is developing […]

The Media Marginalization of Crime Victims

. . .. By Michele Hanisee . We have noted multiple times how the California Legislature, in pursuit of “criminal justice reform,” has repeatedly ignored the victims of crime and instead focused compassion on criminal defendants.

A Common Sense Public Safety Blueprint for Gov. Gavin Newsom

. . .. By Michele Hanisee . Governor Gavin Newsom enters office with a liberal resume and promises to fulfill a progressive agenda.

. . .. By Michele Hanisee .

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. .

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 […]

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

. . .. 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

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 […]
