Assembly Local Government Committee passes AB 201 | CA RSOL
The past few months had the internet buzzing with sex offenders "proclaiming victory" and "high fiving" Janice Bellucci and the ACLU on their efforts to overturn residency restrictions and the ability to go onto previously restricted public/private places as parks or where children congregate. The usual blustering preceded just about every forum on the issue with the "KNOWN loudmouths" basically giving the public the finger and bragging about the fact they will NOW invade these places and dare LE to do anything about it. Of course Bellucci on CARSOL begged for letters and phone calls to be made to legislators opposing (AB201) .. (which saved me a lot of Googling). What this law does is allow for various communities to implement their own restrictions as long as they don't supercede the states. Which is how it should be to a point. Individual communities should have the right to govern themselves and they KNOW what is needed better than some legislator sitting in Sacramento with a pen. If communities laws and ordinances can be wiped away by the state, then one must ask themselves WHY they are paying "local officials" for anything. I am ecstatic Bellucci and the ACLU got knocked down a few pegs. It wasn't hard to do when when the "opposition" copied and pasted a few choice comments from RSOL's site and sent them to legislators that Janice was so grateful to provide. Bellucci and the ACLU are huge machines that can never be fed enough to satisfy them. Their mentality is to throw the "baby out with the bathwater", which is why they must be stopped.
