THE FSD’S NEGLIGENCE REGARDING SEX OFFENDER LAWS BY BARRY LEVINSON


This is an indictment of the FSD leadership under Dr. Pletka. Please note that after both Joe and myself spoke at the FSD Board meeting directing our comments to Dr. Pletka, he as well as the Board of Trustee members, and the other management team members present would not address our concerns as part of the official meeting and did not even have the courtesy of telling us that they would be contacting us to deal with this shortly. The arrogance of our school district leaders is very frightening and it is totally unacceptable. But Board of Trustee Member CHRIS THOMPSON did say on the record that I was full of crap after I spoke and that he would be joyous to prove me wrong. What is your problem Mr. Thompson? An apparent loose cannon about to go off at any moment.

He then proceeded in the middle of the FSD meeting to follow us out of the building and wanted to talk to me and I said I did not want to talk to him. Yet he continued coming at me very angrily and I kept on telling him to back away. Yet again he would not listen to me. I told him that I was concerned that he would hit me. He then out of the blue barraged me with epithets including calling me an Axx-Hxxx three different times and also calling me the slang words for both the male and female genitalia! What a guy?  More importantly what a poor excuse for a FSD Board of Trustee member and a terrible role model for our children. It is now 4:30 PM, the next day and I have yet to hear from Dr. Pletka or anyone of his underlings to offer an apology for the outrageous and totally unacceptable behavior and gutter language uttered by Chris Thompson last night. I would also expect an honorable superintendent contacting me with assurances that a complete and accurate message will finally go out to all the parents of the district and allowing me to first make sure it is accurate as I requested previously. Yet as of this time, no communication from Dr. Pletka at all. QUESTION: Can Dr. Pletka finally do the right thing with regard to getting out the real status of the safety of our children with regard to child sex offenders or is he just hoping that his latest fiasco will just quietly go away. Well I have news for Dr. Pletka, this is not going away sir.
 
As awful as is the above conduct by Mr. Thompson, the most important point was the negligence by Dr. Robert Pletka in his complete failure to know the facts after I handed him the facts on a silver platter via direct emails addressed to him! I believe his actions could be construed to rise to the level of Gross Negligence. Gross Neglience definition is as follows: Carelessness, which is in reckless disregard for the safety or lives of others, and is so great it appears to be a conscious violation of other people’s rights to safely.  It is more that simple inadvertence, but it is just shy of being intentionally evil. If gross negligence is found by the trier of fact (judge or jury), it can result in the award of punitive damages on top of general and special damages.
 

P.S. A note to all my readers that I am considering all options to hold Dr. Pletka, Chris Thompson and the entire FSD accountable for all the above.

THE COMMENTARY BELOW IS BY JOE IMBRIANO

I would like to first give credit to Barry Levinson for showing extreme patience in dealing with the FSD staff as they literally thumbed their noses at the facts that they have been REPEATEDLY provided. The city council stood down as the city attorney lied to them and repealed a solid law that protected children  AND THE SCHOOL DISTRICT RAISED THE STAKES AND DOUBLED DOWN AS THEY PUT OUT A SECOND TEXT TO ALL PARENTS THAT IS, EGREGIOUSLY ERRONEOUS, TO SAY THE LEAST.

AFTER BARRY CLEARLY PROVIDED FACTUAL INFORMATION THAT CONFLICTS WITH THE BULL CRAP THAT THE DISTRICT PUT OUT TO THE PARENTS. THE STUDENTS ARE MORE IN HARMS WAY NOW THAN EVER BEFORE. THE LOCAL ORDINANCE THAT ACTED A S A DETERRENT TO PEDOPHILES IS GONE FOLKS .

THE FSD’S VERY OWN PRESS RELEASE PROVES THAT THE STATE LAW’S ENFORCEMENT PROVISIONS HAVE BEEN CONTINUALLY WEAKENED AND, IN THE ABSENCE OF BARRY’S LAW AT THE LOCAL LEVEL, THE ONLY THING PROTECTING THE CHILDREN IS THEIR PARENTS. THE LAWS PROTECT PEDOPHILES AND THE NEGLIGENT BEHAVIOR OF THE DISTRICT IGNORING THE FACTS PUTTING OUT FALSE HOPE TO PARENTS IS UNCONSCIONABLE. 

HERE IS THE PRESS RELEASE FROM THE DISTRICT

Further Information Regarding Repeal of City of Fullerton Municipal Code Regarding Restrictions imposed on Sex Offenders Related to Residency and Location

Here is further information regarding an article we previously published on our website. The California Supreme Court did loosen some Jessica’s Law Rules on where sex offenders can live. For more information please see http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-california-sex-offenders-20150326-story.html .

IF YOU READ THE ARTICLE THE DISTRICT WANTS YOU TO READ TO FEEL SAFE ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN, THE HEADLINE SAYS-

” California loosens Jessica’s Law rules on where sex offenders can live” 

WHAT KIND OF IDIOTS WORK AT THE FULLERTON SCHOOL DISTRICT IN THE LEGAL DEPARTMENT TO GET THIS ALL WRONG? 

 

WHAT KIND OF IDIOTS ARE ON THE SCHOOL BOARD? WHAT KIND OF IDIOTS ARE ON THE CITY COUNCIL?

MORE TO COME ON THIS FOR SURE FOLKS

    No school board member should ever deviate from the professional demeanor required of any public official during proceedings, in this case a school board meeting. These extenuating circumstances where the board is “accused of protecting pedophiles” as stated by Imbriano as he walks out of the room, is no justification for Chris Thompson, or any other agent, employee or representative of the Fullerton School District to attempt to harass, intimidate, malign, humiliate or denigrate any member of the public.

    I don’t know what happened after the video ends but if Chris Thompson did leave his seat in the middle of the meeting and pursue a member of the public and that member of the public felt threatened, then that is a serious violation of board policy. Were there any witnesses present that can attest to what Mr. Levinson is alleging in this article?

    The subject matter of this post is highly controversial and extremely charged. I am still confused as to exactly what led up to this confrontation between Chris Thompson and Barry Levinson. I can only hope that whatever comes of this, that the children will be put first in all of this political hoopla.

    About time someone called a spade a spade.

    I tip my hat to you, sir.

    Yes there are witnesses!

    I posted the above article on NextDoor which covers a few small neighborhoods in N. Fullerton. I just received a message from NextDoor that one of “My Neighbors” living in Westlake Village, which is about 70 miles from “my neighborhood” thought the above article was inappropriate because they though I was ranting and raving. Yes, some find the truth distasteful but it is not ranting and raving my neighbor who lives 70 miles from me. I kept to the facts and did not use any curse words against anyone. The only ranting and raving was done by FSD Board of Trustee member Chris Thompson.

    Thompson has been known to lose his cool pretty easily. So where is the video of him chasing you and cussing you out?

    Apparently even the Fullerton School District has caught the City of Fullerton Government disease.

    Does everybody have to be corrupt and disingenuous to make it to the top in Fullerton government?

    Yeah yeah blah blah nobody cares.

      Ryan you do care or else you would not be on this site. Another totally disingenuous soul. Obviously he is part of the City of Fullerton establishment.

    It is so very sad that our Fullerton School District after being told of their egregious error, still has not done the right thing. The very false assurances that the FSD gave to all parents in the district very shortly after the repeal of Ordinance 3149 must be corrected immediately. It should now be a no brainer for the district to make a retraction and to give the parents accurate information on this. I certainly have given Dr. Pletka all the background information necessary to bring him up to speed on the issue via direct email to him and two appearances at FSD board meetings. The facts are that because the Fullerton City Council in February 2017 decided to repeal the ordinance, there no longer are penalties in place that would make it a misdemeanor crime for a Convicted Child Sex Offender to move into a residence in Fullerton within 2,000 feet of a school, park, day-care center or pre-school. My question is why won’t they do the right thing and retract their erroneous false assurances they previously sent out to all the parents throughout the FSD? By the way the City of Fullerton through official statements made by the FPD (at about the same time period as the erroneous message that was sent out by the FSD), have claimed that the children are still being protected by the State Law, Jessica’s Law and that is also not true since the City Council repealed Ordinance 3149. My last question is why is it so darn hard to get our local government officials whether it be the FSD or the City of Fullerton to state the truth on this very important safety issue for all our children? Anyone who has children living in Fullerton or who just cares about children should be very concerned about this issue. It would seem that after all my efforts to provide the facts to both the FSD and the City of Fullerton at city council meetings as well that maybe just one council member or one member of the Board of Trustees for the FSD or the FSD Superintendent would on the record make these corrections. We are living in dangerous times. It seems we are getting to the point that for some elected and appointed public officials it would be hard to reach agreement on when it is night vs. day. Maybe they believe that they have the power and the microphone to supersede the truth. I for one am here to remind them that I will not allow them to do this on my watch!

    Does anyone care about our children? Obviously not. You are not worthy of your children because you are children. Thank you Barry and your wife for your hard work.

    Thompson has quite a short fuse. Be careful of him. He loses control rather quickly. If he did those things to a member of the public during a meeting, he should be stripped of his position.

    Still waiting for the FSD to do the right and moral thing with regard to the many curse words and insults that were flung at me by Fullerton School Board member Chris Thompson. AT the same time the clock is running out to when the FSD headed by Dr. Pletka will in fact tell all parents the truth about the repeal of Ord. 3149 and that their kids no longer have the protection of keeping child sex offenders from moving into a residence of any kind within 2,000 feet of a school, park, day-care center or pre-school. I guess making $250,000 a year with great benefits worth at least another $100,000 to $150,000 a year as does Dr. Pletka, ensure that he will do the right thing for our children and parents, which is to correct his misinformation to all parents with children in the district that they are not to worry because the the state law Jessica’s Law is still in place and being enforced. Nothing could be further from the truth and Dr. Pletka has been informed of this fact several times directly by me. Yet he still has not corrected his false assurances to the district’s parents. Like I said apparently approximately $400,000 in salary and benefits does not buy you much anymore with regard to school superintendents. I guess honesty and integrity our qualities you either have or struggle with and no amount of money will make any difference.
