CA Gov Jerry Brown’s ‘prison realignment’ racks up more victims [Darleen Click]
Here’s just another example in the long line of “non-violent offenders” being released from state prison under AB109.
A man on probation as a “non-violent offender” under California’s prison realignment program has been charged with kidnapping, raping, and torturing a 16-year-old girl in South Los Angeles, and detectives suspect he may be connected to three other recent murders.
Robert L. Ranson, 30, was arrested in late March after the girl escaped from a U-Haul van in an alley near Imperial Highway and New Hampshire Ave., according to police and booking records.
The girl was covered in gasoline and said her attacker, later identified as Ranson, had tied her hands and taped her mouth, and was trying to light her on fire when she ran away, naked. [...]
Now, LAPD detectives are looking for evidence that could link Ranson to the murders of two women and a child.
On March 2nd the body of a 19-year-old woman was found near 93rd St. and Grand Ave. She had been tied-up and set on fire.
On March 5th, 28-year-old Grisella Yauli and her 1-year-old son were found dead after a house fire on E. 50th St. Yauli had been tied up and her mouth was taped shut. [...]
He was considered a non-violent offender because his most recent prison term was for possession of a firearm by a felon.
Ranson had previously served time for two carjackings and an assault with a firearm, prison officials said.
Yet Californians are poised to re-elect Moonbeam.
