And so it begins. Now I'm not saying every person released under AB 109 will re-commit crimes, but the headlines are there. AB 109 "implements a variety of alternative custody type programs." Lets call it what it really is. Letting the criminals walk around free so they can have the ability to commit more crimes. Take this guy for instance. He cut off his ankle tracking device. Um, why? So they could not find him maybe. I'm sure he did it by accident and was just riding with the woman he was caught with, you know the one driving under the influence, on his way to just check in. Yeah right. Stand by citizens as I'm sure this won't be the last news report of a parolee turned out under AB 109 re-offending.
Yeah, like we didn't expect THAT to happen!
Why doesn't this surprise me..may be the first in Calaveras County but it won't be the last there or in any county. Thanks Moonbeam
Some people are not able to live in society. Throw him back in prison and send the female there too. @ shadow, what does Gov Brown have to do with it?
Funny how Moonbeam can afford to build a high speed rail. That no one will use. And the funds for the education for illegals. But he can not find the money to protect us from criminals. Not to mention that if we don't support his tax hikes our kids education will be cut. Nice job Moonbeam!
Why did he have the ankle bracelet if he was a non violent ab109 release? It doesn't seem that we are seeing a large amount of arrest on these individuals. So far looks to be worth the money we are saving. But time will
The REAL reason we have "People" who can't understand consequences.
Moonbeam and the dolts in Sacramento strike again. Look alive TCSO, SPD here come the pillars of society that the Sacramento dweebs released.
@ cop, the reason for the ankle bracelet is that the person wearing it has to pay a monthly fee to have it on (can you say REVENUE). All those convicted of DUI have to wear them as well as have a blow and go in their car (also a monthly fee or shall we say REVENUE for our great state).
Why is this state churning out so many criminals in the first place? What is California doing about that?
@Tellonme girl: Govner Moonbeam implemented this release
program, which is now going to bite all of us in the *.*:>).
@rider. Ca has a huge prison population. Many of the prisons are over crowded and a large percentage of them are ailing. The cost to repair is almost equal to the cost to build from ground up, but even then we have over population that is still a concern. Shortly before Gov terminator left office gov moonbeam supported the early release program. He is now implonating it to save money. What that means for us in the foothills is that any one who went to prison can be released and they will be serving the remainder of their time in the county where they where sentenced in. This will put a huge stress on social services, housing, employment ect. You have to figure that many of the prisoners have family's that will be moving back to the area. It just seems like a bad idea to me.
WOW that one snuk up on us. I guess some people wonít notice until itís to late just like so many other times. Soon it will be too late to stop or fix any of it, then they will cry and wonder how it happened. NOW is the time to plan ahead so we donít look back on * poor planning. Wait till your house gets broken into and trashed, or any other crime and then you find out they were let out after doing it to others but were a nonviolent offender. After it happens to you or the people you love, they will start looking like they are ÖCriminals. If it happened to your elderly parents Iím sure you wouldnít think it was ok because they were non-violent. Wake up its not about money. Thatís one of the FEW things I donít mind paying taxes for.
Gabby, Are you really ready to pay 50K a year to put a guy in prision for cutting off his ankle monitor. How many of you out there are reallly willing to pay the $50,000.00 it costs to keep him in prison for a year?
That starts a whole new debate. It shouldnít take 50,000 a year to house them. The ď non violent offenders ď should be much cheaper in camps. I worked in one, no fence, just a bed and the very basics. If they screw up then they get locked up. The system is very broken and I donít have all the answers but I do know the things I see arenít heading in the right direction. Look at the news around the world. We are a 6th grade education above them and the gap seems to be closing. I donít want my grand childrenís world to end up where I think it might. Sorry but it worries me.
AB 109 does not authorize the early release of inmates from prison.It is to keep low level, non-violent offenders and parole violators in local custody instead of sending them to prison. Governor Brown signed the bill to comply with the Feds mandate to deal with the overcrowding in California prisons. Unfotunately people want the bad guys locked up but are not willing to pay to keep them there. So here we are....feel safe?
Tellonme??? Haha good one pacman!
