Assemblyman Fletcher: A Champion of Chelsea King

Posted by Janice | Permalink | 10 Comments Add a comment

In response to the death of 17-year-old Chelsea King, San Diego Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher vows to change California’s sex offender laws. His efforts are fully supported by principal members of King’s family. Specifically, sex offender’s records (including all field notes) are purged one year after year after probation is completed, which is the case with registered sex offender John Albert Gardner III, who plead not guilty in Chelsea King’s death last month. An outraged Assemblyman Fletcher has written to the Department of Corrections and to Inspector General Dave Shaw to determine why such policy is “in the best interests of public safety.” The corrections office maintains that certain information about a parolee is retained in a central file, but both Fletcher and Governor Schwarzenegger find this so called policy to be unacceptable!

Fletcher insists that high risk, violent, sexual predators cannot be rehabilitated, so, at the very least, significant prison sentences should be given; and, lower-level offenders should be heavily scrutinized by law enforcement.
 
Chelsea’s Law, when finally presented before legislature, likely involves a broad coalition of law enforcement and citizens. Stiff penalties would be enforced for the convicted. A first time offender would be given life in prison. If the victim is murdered, then capital punishment may apply. GPS devices would be installed on lower level offenders and monitored beyond their probation.  
 
Lady Justice hopes future nefarious loopholes which befell Chelsea King, Lily Burk, etcetera, be avoided by law enforcement policies that indeed are “in the best interests of public safety.”

    Personally….i think surgical castration is in the best interest of the public…This in large part should
    help prevent a re-occurance of sexual
    predation. This isn’t a cure-all for the problem, but it sure beats the present system that is now in place.

  2. claudine says says:

    …It is a scarey thing for a child or
    an adult to be a victim in these circumstances. The present law doesn’t make any sense to me.

  3. thomas hill says:

    I wonder what was the original intent of this law? Surely, the interests of the
    criminal was first in the prioity of this law. Somehow, I cannot figure out
    the logic of the law as it is now.

  4. ralph kramden says:

    I agree with Charlie. However, chemical
    castration should not be used…only
    surgical castration. Somehow, I think
    this procedure makes a valid point.

  5. cougar says:

    Just so he is castrated, surgical or
    otherwise , makes me more comfortable.

  6. stryker says:

    Can i perform the surgical csstrations?

  7. sverge says:

    In Lapland, castration of domestic reindeer used to be done by biting off the testicles. Maybe some victim might like doing the same thing.

  8. tony says says:

    …kill him….just kill him

  9. Dee Jay says:

    I wish they would publish all convictions in the paper so we can all read their names and what crimes they did.
    Right now, just try to check someone out to see if they have convictions, their records are guarded and private in California – it is not right to keep them secret.

    I hope Chelsea’s law passes, and quickly.
