News Details
5,000 Criminals Given Early Release Under Soft-On-Crime Plan Supported by Buster (10/01/2012)


“A disaster in the making for Riverside County” says Kevin Jeffries

On today’s one year anniversary of the Governor’s signing of AB 109, implementing a reckless prisoner “realignment” plan, the damage this program has caused to Riverside County is beginning to become evident.  Thousands of prison inmates and parolees have been shifted from state supervision to county jails and oversight, contributing to the early release of 5,000 inmates in Riverside County alone.  

1st District Supervisor Candidate Kevin Jeffries remarked on the anniversary, “I opposed the Governor’s realignment, warning that it would result in the early release of criminals, increase crime in our communities, and place a significant burden on our law enforcement.  Unfortunately, 20-year incumbent Supervisor Bob Buster was the deciding vote (approved 3-2) on the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to support the adoption of the Governor’s early release program for convicted criminals.  Our county jails were nowhere near ready to house the influx of thousands of new inmates and to make a bad vote worse, Supervisor Buster was simultaneously attacking our County Sheriff at board meetings for refusing to cut his law enforcement budget even further.”

“Realignment is a disaster in the making for Riverside County.  The incumbent’s endorsement of the early release of criminals and $58 billion in new taxes shows just how out of touch he is with the needs and concerns of Riverside County families.  5,000 criminals have already been released early this year as a result of overcrowding in our jails, and while the county doesn’t keep statistics on crimes committed by early release parolees, there have already been high profile murders, rapes, and assaults all over the state committed by these released repeat offenders.”

“While we don’t yet know how many victims we have in Riverside County as a result of realignment and early release, there are four cities in Riverside County that lost critical funding as part of the shell game that took money away from our cities and gave it to counties to partially pay for the ballooning costs of housing or monitoring thousands of additional criminals.  The four cities, Wildomar, Jurupa Valley, Eastvale and Menifee are struggling to fund essential services as a result of this theft of funds for realignment purposes, and at least one of them is now in extreme danger of having to abandon cityhood entirely.”

“Public safety is the first priority of government, and dumping criminals on already over-burdened counties was a terrible idea.  I opposed it, and the incumbent should have as well.  If elected, I will ensure that our front line police and fire services have the necessary support to protect our homes and families.  Giving convicted criminals a free-pass back into our neighborhoods is unacceptable.  We need a First District Supervisor who will put the safety of families first."
