North State Assembly members Dan Logue, R-Linda, and Cathleen Galgiani, D-Livingston, have introduced a bill that would protect counties from the sudden release of convicted felons into their communities.

Assembly Bill 44 was prompted by the parole of Loren Herzog into Lassen County earlier this year. Herzog was released on short notice to Lassen County law enforcement, prompting public outcry and protests throughout the small community.

    One serial killer, who should have never been able to have seen the light of day again, is going to be the basis for a bill that will affect all those unjustly imprisoned, all those with no access to adequate representation and so therefore they become "felons", all those who are felons according to law but never have done a violent thing against anyone nor ever would but are 'felons' nonetheless, will be affected by this bill that was prompted by ONE individual who bypassed the laws.
    A law made in reaction to one action, especially in haste, should not be entertained, nor enacted, nor allowed to go further than an editorial. The others, the 99%, should not have to pay for one.
