Dear America, this is how it works here in California. You have a bunch of union lackys that are absolutely worthless. These people cannot survive in the private sector because they are a bunch of excuse making losers that have a reason and an excuse as to why they shouldn’t have to do their jobs.
In virtually every branch of California state government, unions are in complete control of every aspect of how the state is run. Imagine a much larger version of General Motors. This is exactly why the state is in financial ruin and the very same reason that General motors failed . . . BECAUSE OF THE UNIONS!
John Albert Gardner, this rotten piece of excrement that got a minimal sentence because of a liberal legal system, was on the police radar for other molestation charges and a suspicion in another young lady that disappeared.
That’s right. Why did this happen? Because the state of California is so bloated with worthless personnel that it can no longer manage itself from Sacramento. Its an absolute travesty.
You have police unions that tell their rank and file that its not their job to arrest and deport illegal aliens, fire departments that keep the overtime going by making sure that there is never enough firemen, prison guard unions that make sure there are plenty of criminals and not enough jails, teachers unions that make sure that they pass along enough criminals to keep all the above busy for life, and Sacramento, which is hell bent on running the state into the socialist abyss in order to keep their own jobs.
California is doomed. The state is full of welfare recipients disguised as firemen, police, teachers, prison guards and every other branch of government that is unionized and pre-programmed to pass the work onto the next guy.
Because of this broken system, California and its liberal legal system, which thinks that a pizza thief should get 50 years while a pedophile should only get six years is destine to fail.
Judges negate any initiatives passed by vote by the people. Attempts to make the system tougher on all of the miscreants that have invaded the decent people of California are routinely struck down by the socialist courts.
When will it end? When the state of California files for bankruptcy and busts out the very unions that have created a system that is completely broken and allows losers and fat stupid people to run these precious arteries of the California government that are supposed to safety for the people.
Let Chelsea King be a martyr. Let here memory be a legacy left on California law enforcement and the state as an example of what is not supposed to happen in the first place.
My heart goes out to the family of Chelsea King. This poor kid is gone. Her blood is not only on the hands of John Gardner, but on the state of California itself, and all the law agencies that completely dropped the ball because it was more important to them to NOT do what they were hired to do in the first place. Protect Chelsea King. JD
Charge him try him sentence him to death and fry him in the electric chair. This is the problem with California justice. They could have a video tape of Gardner committing the crime, and the legal system will find the dumbest humans on earth to sit on the jury, and the liberal judges will give him life.
Criminal charges will be filed Wednesday against a convicted sex offender suspected of murdering 17-year-old Chelsea King, prosecutors said.
Meanwhile, authorities tried to confirm that a body found in a lakeside grave was that of the San Diego County student who has been missing for nearly a week.
District attorney’s spokesman Paul Levikow did not immediately specify the charges planned against John Albert Gardner III, saying the complaint was still being written. The counts will be disclosed at an arraignment later in the day, he said.
The 30-year-old Lake Elsinore man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of murder and rape.
Police said a spray-painted message found on the garage of the suspect’s mother read, “Chelseas (sic) blood is on you. Move out.” Police did not know who painted it.
Gardner lived at the home in 2000 when he molested a 13-year-old neighbor. The home is down the street from an elementary school and near the park where King was last seen Thursday wearing running clothes.
A piece of paper taped to the front door told visitors to leave.
As prosecutors prepared their case against Gardner, the county medical examiner’s office worked to confirm King’s body had been pulled Tuesday from a shallow grave on the south shore of Lake Hodges.
An investigator was meeting with King’s parents at their Poway home, said Lenore Aldridge, a medical investigator.
It was not clear if fingerprints, dental records or other methods of identification were being used.
County Sheriff William Gore said the body was likely King.
Thousands of people joined the search after the teen failed to return from a run near the lake on Thursday.
Mourners held a candlelight vigil Tuesday night for the popular straight-A student at Poway High School.
“What bothers me most is the kids don’t feel safe anymore,” Traci Barkerball, King’s teacher for three years, said between hugs of grieving students. “Their sense of security has been taken away from them.”
Brent King, Chelsea’s father, thanked supporters on the lawn of St. Michael’s Church in Poway, northeast of San Diego. Some people in the audience fought to control their sobs as he spoke.
“One of the nicknames that I’ve always called my daughter is my Angel. She’s my angel forever,” he said. “I want to thank you. Chelsea wants to thank you.”
Someone shouted, “We love you,” and Brent King replied, “We love all of you.”
Gardner was arrested after police said a piece of physical evidence tied him to King. No further details were provided.
Gardner pleaded guilty in May 2000 to molesting the 13-year-old female neighbor and served five years of a six-year prison term. Prosecutors said he lured the victim to his home with an offer to watch “Patch Adams,” a 1998 movie starring Robin Williams.
The girl was beaten before escaping and running to a neighbor.
Gardner “never expressed one scintilla of remorse for his attack upon the victim” despite overwhelming evidence, prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memo.
He had faced a maximum of nearly 11 years in prison under terms of a plea agreement, but prosecutors urged six years.
Dr. Matthew Carroll, a psychiatrist who interviewed Gardner, wanted a stiffer punishment, saying in court documents that he was a “continued danger to underage girls in the community.”
Gardner was on parole for three years, until September 2008, state records show.
San Diego police said Gardner also was linked to an assault on a 22-year-old Colorado woman who managed to fend off her attacker on Dec. 27 in Rancho Bernardo Community Park on the northern edge of San Diego, where King’s 1994 BMW was found with her belongings inside.
San Diego police Capt. Jim Collins declined to describe the evidence connecting Gardner to the December assault but said a swab taken from the victim’s elbow did not match Gardner’s DNA.
Investigators were searching the shallow grave where the body of San Diego high school student Chelsea King was found Tuesday, trying to gather every bit of evidence that will help put away the sex offender they say killed her.
Body found in shallow grave in San Diego is the missing teen’s.
King’s devastated parents attended a vigil Tuesday night in their daughter’s honor to thank the tight-knit community that has spent nearly a week trying to bring her home.
King’s body was found about 10 feet from the shore of Lake Hodges, a half mile from where she parked her car to go jogging in the park last week.
The discovery, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said, “was made by one of the searchers. Looking from the water up the shoreline [the searcher] spotted something that looked suspicious, and investigated and … by moving some small debris … found Chelsea’s body.”
Her body was found six days after King went missing Feb. 25 and two days after police arrested John Albert Gardner III, a convicted sex offender whose DNA they said was found on King’s clothing near where police believe she was abducted.
Gardner, 30, is being held on suspicion of rape and first-degree murder and is scheduled to be charged today in a San Diego court. Prosecutors may include special allegations that would make Gardner eligible for the death penalty.
Former FBI agent and ABC News consultant Brad Garrett said the location of the body likely means King was attacked shortly after she started her jog.
“”This was probably a blitz attack. where he sees her jogging and attacks her,” he said, adding that it’s not uncommon for murderers to leave their victims near the site of the crime.
Police said Gardner, who was arrested in 2000 for committing lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14, may also be connected to the disappearance of Amber DuBois, a 14-year-old who disappeared near San Diego on her way to school in February 2009.
DuBois’ grandmother, Sheila Welch, is demanding a crackdown on known sex offenders.
“It makes me want to throw up. How many times are we going to continue to let this happen?” she asked. “Whose child is it going to be next?”
Garrett said that although police have said Gardner is not cooperating with investigators, authorities from the region should be pulling “every assault case, every missing child that fits Mr. Gardner’s MO.”
“What’s going to drive him is, ‘What’s in this for me?’” Garrett said. “At some point the death penalty might be placed off the table if he can tell them about other situations.”
Authorities Monday also linked Gardner to an attack on 23-year-old Candice Moncayo, who identified Gardner from a mug shot as the man who attacked her weeks before along the same running path where King disappeared.
Moncayo was able to fend off her attacker by elbowing him in the face and running away.
“Candice was reached by police to see if the man matched up with the man who attacked Chelsea King,” Moncayo’s sister, Kayla Moncayo, told ABC News today. “She looked at the pictures and told police, ‘He’s the same guy.’”
Moncayo’s sister said she hoped the information police learned could help them convict Gardner.
“When we heard about Chelsea King, immediately my family was concerned that it was the same man,” said Kayla Moncayo. “We pray that Candice can provide helpful information and Chelsea will be found.”
Kayla Moncayo, the opinion editor for the Silver Spur, the Rancho Bernardo High School newspaper, wrote about her sister’s attack shortly after it took place. The story ran last Friday, one day after King disappeared.
Candice Moncayo was running on the trail when she “was tackled and thrown to the side of the running trail, caught off guard and without warning,” her sister wrote.
“I thought he was going to rape me,” Moncayo said of the overweight man who tackled her. “So I told him he would have to kill me first.”
“He picked her up by the shoulders and began shaking her relentlessly,” she wrote.
Moncayo fought her attacker, elbowing hard him in the nose. The shot made her assailant pause, allowing her to get out of his grasp and run away.
“All that was left of the … attacker were the bruises he left on her and the DNA the police were able to swab from her elbow,” according to the article.
“She is shaken up, but she’s a strong girl,” Kayla told ABC News today. “She has the joy of the lord on her.”
