    I find this endorsement extremely shocking to say the least. According to a recent USA TODAY report, 392 out of 1,573 wanted SJ criminals possibly would not be picked up if found in other states.85 wanted for sex crimes, 21 of which have nonextradition warrants. 29 sought for violent crimes,9 of which have nonextradition warrants. There are plenty of victims of crimes in San Joaquin County that would not agree with this endorsement.

    The following represents my letter to CVUC due to their endorsement: Dear CVUC,
    My name is Jeffrey Rinek, I am a retired FBI Agent and I am known to Nina Salerno. I am aware what your family has suffered and of the work you have engaged in to help victims. I am at a loss to understand how you can endorse Sheriff Steve Moore of San Joaquin County citing his record on victims rights. As I write this email to you, Sheriff Moore has received national attention for not extraditing violent felons from out of state. Additionally, as when I had previously approached CVUC Sheriff Moore's actions regarding his recovery and dismemberment of vicitm remains is a matter of an ongoing Federal Civil Matter. I wish you to know that Sheriff Moore holds over two hundred items of personal property from victims he refuses to allow victims to view, law enforcement to view, and he has been found to cause the needless co-mingling of victim remains. He is alleged to have cremated one victim who had another victims co-mingled into the remains. I cannot sufficiently express my disappointment in your action, and my skepticism as to whose rights you actually care about. In this action, you have definitely acted against the victims of San Joaquin County.
    I can no longer, in good conscience, consider that your organization truly is a resource for victims, and therefore can no longer recommend Crime Victims Untied of California to the victims I encounter. While I desire that Sheriff Moore's re-elction bid fails, I wish you whatever success you choose to pursue. I must say, that I personally feel ashamed of your endorsement.
    Jeffrey L. Rinek
