Nice letter, Doc. I, too believe in recovery, restoration and forgiveness for Efren Carrillo. It's between him and Jane Doe from this point forwards. One day at a time, as he said the other day to the PD.
Vote for Victoria Shanahan on June 3rd.
This case is one of the reasons Ravitch has to go. It is inexcusable how hard this prosecutor tried to make Houston Herczog a murderer rather than a mental patient - 3 opinions in favor of schizophrenia and she calls in a 4th doctor, which has never been done before in my memory. And still she lost the case, although the rest of us feel justice was finally achieved. Ravitch also promised procedural reform, which has not occurred. Mark Herczog, a good father, friend and fellow musician, died because he refused to call in law enforcement for fear they would murder his child, like Jeremiah Chass was murdered by our Sheriff's office.
While I initially supported the calls for Carrillo's resignation, I have decided to leave this young man alone with his demons. We ALL have them, in various degrees. Watching the Progressives wring their hands over this issue has been an education in itself, and not to their benefit - they seem incapable of making a decision, and certainly we need decisive leaders, like Carrillo, who adamantly spoke out against Paul Hobbs' vineyard development on behalf of his Constituents. Short of a felony conviction, Efren will prevail. I believe he strikes the right balance between our County's needs for jobs, education and reasonable environmental protections. Furthermore, I disagree with our County's favorite political analyst, David McCuan of SSU - Efren WILL take a higher office within the next five years. I Iook forward to working with him in the future.
Nice commentary, Lisa. I feel all Citizens should feel safe in their homes, regardless of gender.
