Governor Brown and Members of the California State Legislature: REPEAL AB 109

    1. Petition by

      Crime Victims Action Alliance


It has been over a year since AB 109 was signed into law, and since its enactment the results have had an overall negative impact on public safety in California. Crime is on the rise across the state and criminals are not being held accountable for their crimes, as there is literally no space in our county jails to house them.  Those who have been sentenced to treatment programs are walking away from the programs, because there are no consequences forfailing to comply with the program’s regulations and attendance requirements.  Thousands of inmates and pre-trial defendants charged with serious crimes are being released early from our local jails because of the overcrowding caused by the realignment of what were previously state prison inmates who are now required to be housed in our local communities.


AB 109 has seriously increased the risk to the public’s safety as is highlighted in the news almost daily.

Something must be done!  Please sign this letter to day asking the Governor and the Members of the State Legislature to Repeal or significantly amend AB 109.

      It should not be required for it violates the Laws of the Constitution as "..the constitution is the Supreme Law, superior to all other public acts whether by officials or private citizens. Any Court Ruling, statute, regulation, executive order which is Inconsistent with that supreme law and Not Derived from it is Unconstitutional and Null and Void from Inception; And "The GENERAL RULE is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstituinality dates from the time of it's enactment, and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it... No One is Bound to Obey an unconstitutional law, and No Courts are Bound to Enforce it. The People, as Person or Corporate Persons, are a competent court of jurisprudence for determining unconstitutionality. This Law "Neglects to perform the duty of protection of the people imposed; and it is intended to be applied selectively, .. in violation of the equal protection provision that all laws must be applied uniformly."
