PEDOPHILES VS. KIDS AND THE FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL VOTED FOR THE PEDOPHILES

WHY DID THE CITY OF FULLERTON GOVERNMENT JUSTIFY THE REPEAL OF A LAW TO PROTECT KIDS FROM PEDOPHILES BASED ON KNOWN FALSE INFORMATION? PEDOPHILES VS. KIDS AND THE FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL VOTED FOR THE PEDOPHILES AND AGAINST OUR KIDS SAFETY!  THANKS FOR NOTHING MAYOR BRUCE WHITAKER, COUNCIL MEMBERS JENNIFER FITZGERALD, GREG SEBOURN, DOUG CHAFFEE AND JESUS SILVA!

There are two kinds of pedophiles.   The first kind are those who recognize the evil desire they have toward children and try to fight the urges to re-committ these heinous crimes.   These pedophiles try to stay away from places, which prove to be the greatest temptation; i.e. schools, parks, playgrounds, etc.   The second kind of pedophile feels absolutely no remorse and is on the hunt for innocent children 24/7.   Which kind of pedophile do you think sues governments to repeal laws that restrict them from living near a school, park or day-care center?  Which city with a proven false legal justification decided anyway to repeal our law without any legal fight….our Fullerton City Council, all of them…MAYOR BRUCE WHITAKER, COUNCI MEMBERS JENNIFER FITZGERALD, GREG SUBORN, DOUG CHAFFEE AND HUSBAND TO STATE ASSEMBLY MEMBER SHARON QUIRK-SILVA, HESUS SILVA!   THEY KNEW BECAUSE MYSELF AND OTHERS TOLD THE CITY COUNCIL THAT THER HAS BEEN NO CALIFORNIA COURT DECISION AT ANY LEVEL that has dealt with the residence restriction of ONLY CHILD SEX OFFENDERS in our State of California, arguably the most far-left state in the nation.   I hope and pray that one day soon, the good people of Fullerton will hold each and everyone of those arrogant, deceitful and contemptible council members accountable for their despicable votes to leave our children in Fullerton more vulnerable to pedophiles.

Children in harms way, and why people need to pay attention to what Barry Levinson has been saying about the corrupt city officials who repealed the Fullerton sex offender ordinance

Transient roamed onto school scaring children during pick up –

FROM NEXTDOOR NEIGHBOR SUNNY HILLS

Another unwanted, unwelcomed transient who appeared very inebriated or mentally unstable set foot on campus screaming at the children that he had a taser and was part of Fullerton PD. Teachers and principals lead him off campus and called the police who arrived quickly as he was walking along the middle of Laguna Road holding an object and profusely drooling. He ran off and they chased him, didn’t see how it ended but pretty sure they got a handle. So scary.

Schools need to have closed campuses Full fencing with access only through the main office. My grandchilds school is secured this way. It is an adjustment that takes getting use to but it is so much safer
 Thank

No were not there yet. This makes me sick that it comes to this way of dealing with a few weirdo’s Be aware of all your surroundings. Pay attention..They are few and we are many. Do you really want to raise your kids like this? Your putting fear into our kids…This is what other countries want us to do..
 Thank

I agree, I’d rather not have all of our schools and students fenced in completely. This is a very rare occurence, and I’ve been at the school since 2008. The school has a comprehensive plan for keeping students safe at school. They have really ramped up safety measures in recent years, including keeping doors locked so people can’t enter from the outside. The kids are taught how to be safe and not to answer the door in certain situations. Also, there are a number of parent and staff monitors, who watch the campus. They are so vigilant that they will send parents to sign in at the office if you don’t have a visitor or volunteer sticker visible. In this case, the incident happened right at dismissal time so people were preparing to go home. Teachers and the principal had the situation well under control and there were a lot of people around at the time. This doesn’t mean the the incident wasn’t scary, but the principal, teachers and staff were right on top of it.

Ever since Kelly Thomas I feel like the fullerton pd just takes a hands off policy in dealing with the homeless. Don’t know what the solution is but I know that 15 years ago when I moved here there didn’t seem to be anywhere near the homeless population that’s here now.

I’m waiting for someone before the end of the night who will proclaim he is not a transient but a possible homeowner who was once a boy scout, or perhaps a hobo advocate who will will proclaim that we are all just one paycheck away from being him and we should not judge, shame or blame, then there is old reliable of “The data is not in” and if we just paid a little more in taxes, these guys would be living in a beach front condo somewhere and given a 23 chance to turn it all around. I’m glad the kids are safe and the school is following a security minded protocol, kudos to the school administration and teachers. I have said many times, this is just the beginning, it’s all going to get a lot worse, big league. The cops had to deal with this guy today and someone is sure to criticize very quickly. They will transport him to a mental health facility and the staff will pump him full of psychotropics and kick him out the door. And so it goes…….. Everyone stay vigilant and stay safe. This incident today could have been real ugly. Peace out.

This occured at Laguna Road Elementary. I was in the long line of cars waiting to go through the pick up line and I saw him walk right up to the front of school. I knew my daughter was on the other side of where he was standing so I attempted to jump out and then the principal acted very quickly and was able to make him go towards the parking lot away from the kids. This definitely concerns me on so many levels. Fences wouldn’t have helped in this case because it was dismissal, but this school campus is very easy to access on many sides. Although the staff is trained, they can’t possibly monitor access throughout the day. I think there needs to be a discussion about preventing access to the campus during school hours, and I plan on pursuing that. I am very grateful to the principal for making a point to be out there during dismissal and for escorting this individual quickly away from the kids.

In May I called the Laguna Road school office to report a man climbing up the cement water shed channel on the north side of campus along Morelia. I did not like his secretive movements and I knew he was not supposed to be there. Even though my kids aren’t there anymore I wasnt going to let him hang out up there.
 Thank

Angela Jones·Edited 1d ago

True, teachers cannot monitor all day, hence the presence of specific people assigned to monitor during class & more specifically, during recess/lunch times. I know in other areas of the city, like near the armory, there are more secured campuses b/c the schools have to deal with more severe issues impacting campus safety. However, to be fair, you cannot readily access the school from “many” sides. Rather, the main access point is in the front of the school. There is a tall fence to the S (behind the bank and medical offices) and a tall fence all along Morelia to the west and then along Laguna Road to the N. There is a low fence along the E side of the school by a parent parking area and along the playground (which is behind more medical offices). However, this playground is a shared park area with the City of Fullerton Park System. If we lock it down completely, then we lose the only park that’s in walking distance for families in the area. There is no fence around the front of the school or driveway circle entrance. Recently, a tall fence was put in to the north of the playground, to limit access to the playground unless you enter from within the center of the campus. Also new secured gates and tall fences were put in around the Kinder playground. Certainly, someone could scale that low fence, but there are parent/staff monitors outside in that area whenever children are outside & the new safety protocols are intended to keep anyone from just walking into a classroom, if they happen to hop the fence. While, no measures are 100 percent secure, and things like this are unnerving esp. where our kids are concerned, that campus has so many people (adults) around at all times of the day that it’s not as easy as it may seem for people to just walk onto campus w/o being seen. Plus, the monitors are very strict – even if they know you – and require everyone to check in the front office. A review of policies is always helpful, especially to see if there are more things that can be done to make additional safety improvements. But, l hope all avenues are exhausted before we put tall fences all the way around the school, including across the front parking lot area.

Amanda, how long ago was that last incident? If he’s back on the streets again then he was most likely held 3 to 14 days during the initial episode, medicated, then released back into society. Once the meds wore off, he fell back into the cycle.

For those of you who may wish to stay updated about local crimes you can sign up for daily notices on www.SpotCrime.com. Every morning I receive a notice alerting me to crimes within a ten mile radius of my home, which is down the road from Laguna Rd School. Needless to say, yesterday’s incidence was listed, although specific details beyond “suspicious person,” “crime scene,” “transient issue,” “burglary”, etc are not included. And, every day I read about a transient issue or suspicious person report around the Harbor and Bastanchury area, whether its related to having CVS open for 24 hrs day, or having an urgent care facility across the street from the school. If you would like to receive notices check out their site at www.SpotCrime.com

The picture is blurred, but this also looks like a man that was walking in front of Hermosa Elementary yesterday (Thursday) at 4:30pm. He didn’t say anything to the kids that were there waiting for pickup up, but he did look like he was intoxicated, not walking straight. No one said anything since we was on the sidewalk and not talking/bothering anyone

If he is also a child sex offender he may live nearby as the fullerton city council repealed a law my wife Susan and myself worked diligently in 2010 to get passed to keep pedophiles from living within 2,000 feet of a school, park, day-care center or nursery. The FPD who recommended its passage in 2010 was completely silent and went along with its repeal. What a city council and what a police department.

 Thank
Barry Levinson

Barry Levinson·Edited 3h ago

The City Attorney represented by James Touchstone provided false information that our law, Ordinance NO 3149 codified at FMC No. 7150, that it covered all sex offenders in Fullerton. Touchstone stated to council that it restricted all sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of a school, park or day-care center. It is curious that Touchstone got this wrong since he was responsible for the latest revision of the law back in 2014. But I then went before the council with Touchstone still present and our City Attorney, DIck Jones on the dais and read the pertinent parts of the law word for word that clearly stated that for purposes of our law a sex offender was someone who sexually abused children only. After i did this and then Touchstone came up again to refute my 100% truthful and accurate statement, Mayor Whitaker thanked him for setting the record straight and then they all then voted to repeal a good and constitutional law. The importance of who the law covered was that almost all laws throughout the state including the unenforceable Jessica’s Law (because it had no penalties) covered all sex offenders. In Fullerton we ensured that it only covered those who are a danger to live near children regularly gather, i.e. previously convicted pedophiles. A few Ca. courts had questioned the broadness of the 100% restriction against all sex offenders. Our law restricting only child sex offenders has to this day not been challenged in any California court. If Touchstone did not know he was wrong initially after I corrected him with the law, it was clear that the truth did not matter to our City Attorney, our Police Chief and our City Council who voted unanimously to repeal this very good law. A city government that refuses to protect its children is a city government that does not deserve our support! Now Mayor Whitaker wants to be our next State Senator. Tell Bruce Whitaker that his actions have been noted and that he will be held accountable by Fullerton voters made up of parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles!

I hope this message gets out to all Fullertonians. It should be the nail in the coffin of the political career of Mayor Bruce Whitaker and the rest of our undistinguished city council members. By the way, Jennifer Fitzgerald had the nerve to say that she hated to vote to repeal the law. So my question to Fitzgerald is why then did she do precisely that! Also it is not well known that after Council member Fitzgerald made the most she could politically out of her not accepting any pay or benefits during her first term as our council member, she very quietly requested all pay and benefits shortly after her reelection ( in her case she gets $750 a month salary and another $100 a month in lieu of getting health benefits). Why has Ms. Fitzgerald not made a public statement telling all Fullertonians that she now is on the public dole and by so doing has made a complete 180 degree turn from her many prior public statements? How disingenuous to use her claim that she will not take any payments for her service because she believes public service should not include payment, yet now for her second term has very quietly accepted any and all financial benefits for her service. We truly have some very bad and disingenuous people representing us. I am still waiting for Greg Sebourn to take some action against the vendor/contractor and the city inspectors for the substandard job on the Hillcrest Park Stairs. He said in response to this fiasco being brought before the council in May or June of this year by a Fullerton citizen that he Sebourn would look into it and make sure Fullertonians are not holding the bag for additional costs. If we randomly chose any 5 Fullertonians to represent us, I believe the quality, the honesty and the integrity of our council would improve since we can’t do much worse than the current five people.

We must tolerate the government we elect and retain. It is no one’s fault but ours. I for one have no use for political hacks of any party. How about just electing City Council members who simply have an agenda of doing the right thing for our city? People who have backbone and the will to provide leadership, not a political ideology? Not windbags who follow the PC culture and try to be everything to everyone.

Barry Levinson·Just now

Mike I do not think our city council members are trying to be everything to everyone. That implies that they are trying to please everyone. Their aim is to fool everyone into thinking they care about us and our grand city. They only care about themselves and they prove that statement at just about every council meeting. As Park and Recreation Committee member for almost 6 years, (appointed by Bruce Whitaker twice) on a committee with a total of 7 members, I represented the people’s interest to the best of my ability. The result was that Whitaker removed me without giving me any reason in May 2016 and did not replace me with another committee member until the following year. He failed to give the citizens a full committee by having his seat vacant for 8 months. Is that the action of a council member who cares about his constituents? Like I said our representatives on the city council prove on a regular basis that they only care about themselves!

WHY ONLY HIGHLIGHTING UNFUNDED PENSION COSTS BUT IGNORING ALL OTHER FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL FAILINGS BY MAYOR BRUCE WHITAKER, COUNCIL MEMBER GREG SEBOURN, JENNIFER FITZGERALD, DOUG CHAFFEE AND JESUS SILVA IS A BIG MISTAKE AND CERTAINLY WILL NOT HAVE THE DESIRED EFFECT OF FULLERTON GOVERNMENT REFORM BY BARRY LEVINSON

 

Barry Levinson

There is absolutely no doubt that the biggest financial calamity facing California taxpayers created by our elected officials is the public pension unfunded liabilities followed by the public employee retiree health care unfunded liabilities.

Yet I have been making the point for some time now that as citizens we can’t ignore all the other falsehoods, misinformation and out and out lies given to us by our California elected and appointed officials at all levels of the government and expect to make real headway with pensions.

Why do I say this? It is rather simple really. How do you expect to get an honest handle on pension costs, when we allow our elected and appointed officials to mislead us on just about every important issue facing us today. You want objectivity, transparency, and honesty concerning pensions while letting our officials literally skate on almost everything else. Either we hold all of them accountable and that means they start being honest with us on everything or we throw all of them out and get elected officials who finally have our interests at the forefront of if not everything, at least most official actions they take as our duly elected representatives.

The fact that citizens who only address the big money issue of pensions and actually give cover to those who mislead and lie to us on so much else makes those citizens part of the entire problem and not part of the solution. You can not be honest with pensions and dishonest with everything else and expect a better outcome for both the taxpayers and the citizens of this once great state of California. There is nothing good to come out of supporting your crooked politician because he/she throws us a bone once in a blue moon. Unfortunately, the bone usually is hollow as well. It is usually political grandstanding and not real. So highlighting nothing other than skyrocketing pension costs will not get us where we need to be….which is for once getting a more honest, transparent government led by elected officials with equal parts integrity and courage.

So when will you pension writers start to call out the phonies who say they are for pension reform while lying to us on so many other very important issues and at the same time accomplishing little or nothing in the pension arena either.

 

A good start in the City of Fullerton would be to ask for the resignations of all Fullerton City Council members,

Whitaker,

Sebourn,

Fitzgerald,

Chaffee

and Silva

for their repealing a very good law based on false information and assumptions.

It was Fullerton Ordinance 3149, the Child Sex Offender Residency Restriction Act. Now formerly convicted child rapists, molesters, etc. can live right next door to any school, park, pre-school and day-care center in Fullerton thanks to each and every council member going along with a deceitful false premise provided by none other than Fullerton City Attorney, James Touchstone. That false premise was that the Fullerton ordinance covered all sex offenders when in fact it explicitly stated that it dealt specifically with only child sex offenders. The fact is that in no California court has the residency restriction of just child sex offenders every been adjudicated or challenged. The question then remains why would all five council members take action to benefit pedophiles while at the same time making it less safe for our children?

City attorney Dick Jones

It is a question that we the citizens of Fullerton deserve a complete and honest answer to! But I can guarantee that will never happen and that is precisely why they all need to be thrown out of office.

Unconscionable behavior by our Fullerton City Council, Fullerton City Attorney and the Fullerton Police Chief.

BELOW IS THE TRANSCRIPT OF MY REMARKS BEFORE THE FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL (MAYOR BRUCE WHITAKER, COUNCIL MEMBERS GREG SEBOURN, JENNIFER FITZGERALD, JESUS SILVA AND MAYOR PRO TEM DOUG CHAFFEE) ON MAY 15, 2017 AS WELL AS SOME ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS

BY BARRY LEVINSON

 

Back In February I witnessed unconscionable behavior by our Fullerton City Council, Fullerton City Attorney and the Fullerton Police Chief. The behavior was to provide False And Very Misleading Information about The Fullerton Child Sex Offender Residency Restriction Law To Justify Its Repeal! This False Narrative Lead By City Attorney James Touchstone Demonstrated A Lack Of Character By Him And All Who Played Along With This Charade.

Fullerton City attorney James Touchstone

I Am Here To Proclaim Very Loudly That Character Does Count And Not One Individual On The Dais That Evening Demonstrated Any Character!  Months ago they knew the facts but ignored them and went ahead anyway. They were warned. See this video below.

Whether you happen to agree with their votes or not, it is never good for the public to have elected and appointed officials who mislead, misinform and sometimes out and out lie to us. Diane Hickey, Joe Imbriano and myself clearly documented on the record here in this chamber that the erroneous information City Attorney James Touchstone spelled out as part of an official presentation to council recommending the repeal of Ordinance 3149 was indeed false.  He stated erroneously that the ordinance impacts all sex offenders when the ordinance clearly defines a sex offender as only a child sex offender for purposes of this law.

Here we are months later and still the Fullerton City Council continues to protect the pedophiles and refuses to acknowledge that the official presentation by our city attorney months back on this issue was based on falsehood. What does that tell you about the integrity, honesty and decency of our city council, police chief and our city attorney?

Council person Doug Chaffee”s actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

Council person Jesus Silva’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

 

Council person Bruce Whitaker’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

Police Chief Heinig on the right’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

Council person Greg Sebourn’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children. What a guy who thinks it ok to cancel an agenda item when the presenter is at the podium.

Vice President of Curt Pringle and associates Jennifer Fitzgerald.’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children. She has had to recuse herself because one of her clients got a big payday from the Fullerton City Council.

 

Fullerton City Attorney Dick Jones’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children. Check him out dozing while making big bucks. Could anybody look more disinterested that he?

After we proved that Mr. Touchstone provided false information to the council in support of his recommendation to repeal Ordinance 3149, every city council member ignored that fact and voted to repeal the ordinance, anyway. They in fact by not acknowledging James Touchstone’s egregious error, chose to be part of the deception. Touchstone’s failure to acknowledge his error after we corrected him strongly suggests that it was not an error at all but an intentional ploy/conspiracy to mislead the public on this very important issue. What has City Attorney Dick Jones done in regard to this misinformation given by his partner in his law firm?  As far as I know absolutely nothing! This whole scenario is shameless behavior by our City of Fullerton Government and can’t be tolerated going forward.

I can’t for certain claim that each and every one of those individuals will be held to account by the Fullerton public.  But what I can say is that God will in fact judge them for their ethical and moral failings as our elected and appointed Fullerton officials.

The only thing I can add to my prepared remarks that i presented at the public comment section of the Fullerton City Council meeting on May 15, 2017 is the following:

We the good people of Fullerton must stand up to demand form our city council and city government, integrity, honesty and representation that only considers the overall well-being of the citizens of Fullerton.

This must include coming regularly to city council meetings and making your voices heard by those who are supposed to represent us the people.

A VERY NECESSARY AND EXTREMELY IMPORTANT OPEN LETTER TO MAYOR BRUCE WHITAKER’S EMAIL RESPONSE TO JOE IMBRIANO BY JOE IMBRIANO AND BARRY LEVINSON

receive and file issue

Bruce Whitaker <BWWhitaker@live.com> Thu, May 18, 2017 at 11:14 AM
To: “joeimbriano777@gmail.com” <joeimbriano777@gmail.com>

Your remarks are a joke and are fraudulent. Repeatedly attacking me, a representative who votes appropriately is stridently opportunistic on your part. Whether that report was reviewed at one meeting or another meeting was not time critical.

I had not been advised that he was in attendance, and quickly reversed the action.

If this is the best you can do…so lame!

Sent from my Android device

—— Original message——

From: The Fullerton Informer

Date: Thu, May 18, 2017 10:09 AM

To: Bruce Whitaker;

Subject:receive and file issue

Well it is obvious Mayor Whitaker that you should have known that the Milliman actuarial consultant was in attendance at the May 15, 2017 Fullerton City Council meeting because it was highlighted as the first sentence under Agenda Item No. 5 as follows: “John Botsford of Milliman, the City’s consulting actuary, will present the City’s updated actuarial analysis of Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) liabilities.”  Your claim that you had no idea that the consultant was present for the council meeting is ludicrous and ridiculous on its face.

 

 

You are telling us that you didn’t even read the agenda as Mayor when in fact it is your responsibility along with the City Manager to put out the Agenda itself.   What are we the good people of Fullerton to make of your statement that you did not even read the Fullerton City Council Agenda prior to your leading the city council meeting?  You are either totally incompetent or not being truthful with us.  There are no other legitimate explanations for your behavior and statements. Shouldn’t you, Mr. so-called Fiscal Conservative, be aware of the costs to the taxpayer to bring that high priced consultant back again after you would have probably spent a few thousand taxpayer dollars to bring him down here for the May 15th meeting already? 

Greg Sebourn made the motion to send the consultant packing

 

When Doug Chaffee is the only voice of reason on the council, you know we are in trouble

Why would you vote to postpone an agenda item that had already cost the city possibly thousands of dollars for this May 15th meeting, which required only the council’s action to Receive and File the item?  In other words really no substantial action at all!  Why would Greg Sebourn make a motion to postpone a Receive and File item to the next meeting and all of you very quickly concur with him?

Jesus Silva pondering the facts

In all cases when a motion to postpone an agenda item is being considered it should be necessary at the absolute minimum for that council member making that motion to explain why it is necessary to postpone the agenda item, especially at the very last moment as was the case here.  The way this was handled was totally derelict by all of you.  It demonstrated that you did not care about the great inconvenience you were willing to put the consultant and those Fullerton residents that were at the meeting or at home staying up to that late hour to hear this agenda item. We say shame on all of you for trying to avoid an agendized issue that obviously was embarrassing for all of you.  Once again your action shows your complete disregard for the public.

Mayor Whitaker, you even added insult to injury by trying to skip public comments on this issue. How many times have you been mayor, Mr. Whitaker?  We believe this is at least your third time.   You keep on digging a bigger and bigger hole for yourself and it would take a Houdini like effort to now dig yourself out of this in our opinion.

You claim you quickly reversed the decision? No the city employee had to correct you and point out that it would be a great burden for this person to come down from the Bay Area and present at a later date.  Not to mention your silence on the increased cost to the taxpayer by the councils original vote to postpone the item. He was there I assume based on your requested date and time. You have embarrassed yourself with this action and people who are paying attention will have plenty to discuss between now and the next election about your failings and we intend to lead those discussions.

The people of Fullerton more and more know the games you play. It is becoming a more and more common event for you and your fellow council members to mislead and or not to provide proper information on the important subjects we are dealing with. 

We are also confused why David Curlee, Josh Ferguson and Tony Bushala, all present at the meeting had nothing to say on this item? They are people that highlight financial issues and they were all completely silent on a 35 million dollar unfunded liability.  David Curlee and yourself have made it a point to discuss the propriety of $300/$400 a night city employee hotel bills in the recent past, yet now not a peep from either of you on a 35 million dollar unfunded Fullerton liability that will be have to come from us the taxpayers.

Finally, Greg Sebourn states that he will put on the agenda a discussion on having the city attempt to get a refund from the staircase contractor for obvious shoddy and substandard workmanship. Yet Sebourn never actually made a motion to get this on the agenda for the next meeting or for any meeting for that matter.  Was this just political grandstanding by Sebourn?  Why as Mayor and self proclaimed fiscal conservative, Mayor Whitaker did you not make that motion yourself?

How does it feel to remain silent on false claims about our Ordinance 3149, the Child Sex Offender Residency Restriction Act and then based on those false statements repeal a very good law.  When will you or any member on the Fullerton City Council dais acknowledge what we have proved that City Attorney James Touchstone provided false information to justify his recommendation to repeal the Fullerton Ordinance?  You stated that your votes are all appropriate.  You call basing your vote on a previously proven misstatement of fact appropriate voting? You know with regard to that, you don’t have a leg to stand on.  Mayor Whitaker, the guilt and the shame of your facial expressions when Diane and we were discussing this issue was so very telling.  You voted along with all of your colleagues to repeal a Fullerton law based on a faulty presentation that helped to keep our children safe from pedophiles.  You have repeatedly ignored the proof and evidence we showed all of you that the justification for your actions was based on falsehoods about the status and the language of Ordinance NO; 3149.   Once again we say shame on all of you.   It is hard to imagine a more damning set of circumstances that you now own concerning your action to intentionally lesson the safety of our children based on information you all knew was false. Shame on all of you.
