Default Assembly Bill 123 Cripples 1st Amendment

The description of this bill doesn't mirror it's written statement. In the description, it says you have to intend physical harm, but the law as is stated to be chaptered says it only has to cause a disruption. This bill expands the location of the disruption off the school property and would include the sidewalks across the street. So a mobile billboard like ours could be asked to leave due to the disruption, and if we didn't, we could be arrested, leaving us to fight our way in federal court to get the conviction overturned


Quote:
AB 123, as introduced, Mendoza. School safety: disruption
threatening pupil's immediate physical safety.
Existing law provides that a person who comes into any school
building or upon any school ground, or adjacent street, sidewalk, or
public way, whose presence or acts interfere with or disrupt a school
activity, without lawful business, or who remains after having been
asked to leave, as specified, is guilty of a misdemeanor. "School" is
defined to mean any preschool or public or private school having
kindergarten or any of grades 1 to 12, inclusive.
This bill would expand this provision to also apply to any person
who comes into any school building or upon any school ground, or
adjacent street, sidewalk, or public way, and willfully or knowingly
creates a disruption with the intent to threaten the immediate
physical safety of any pupil in preschool, kindergarten, or any of
grades 1 to 8, inclusive, arriving at, attending, or leaving from
school.
Because this bill would expand the definition of an existing
crime, it would create a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: yes.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

SECTION 1. Section 626.8 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
626.8. (a) Any person who comes into any school building or upon
any school ground, or street, sidewalk, or public way adjacent
thereto, without lawful business thereon, and whose presence or acts
interfere with the peaceful conduct of the activities of the school
or disrupt the school or its pupils or school activities, is guilty
of a misdemeanor if he or she does any of the following:
(1) Remains there after being asked to leave by the chief
administrative official of that school or his or her designated
representative, or by a person employed as a member of a security or
police department of a school district pursuant to Section
39670 Chapter 1 (commencing with Section 38000) of
Part 23 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Education Code, or a
city police officer, or sheriff or deputy sheriff, or a Department of
the California Highway Patrol peace officer.
(2) Reenters or comes upon that place within seven days of being
asked to leave by a person specified in paragraph (1).
(3) Has otherwise established a continued pattern of unauthorized
entry.
This section shall not be utilized to impinge upon the lawful
exercise of constitutionally protected rights of freedom of speech or
assembly.
(4) Willfully or knowingly creates a disruption with the intent to
threaten the immediate physical safety of any pupil in preschool,
kindergarten, or any of grades 1 to 8, inclusive, arriving at,
attending, or leaving from school.
(b) Punishment for violation of this section shall be as follows:
(1) Upon a first conviction by a fine not exceeding five hundred
dollars ($500), by imprisonment in a county jail for a period of not
more than six months, or by both that fine and imprisonment.
(2) If the defendant has been previously convicted once of a
violation of any offense defined in this chapter or Section 415.5, by
imprisonment in a county jail for a period of not less than 10 days
or more than six months, or by both imprisonment and a fine not
exceeding five hundred dollars ($500), and shall not be released on
probation, parole, or any other basis until he or she has served not
less than 10 days.
(3) If the defendant has been previously convicted two or more
times of a violation of any offense defined in this chapter or
Section 415.5, by imprisonment in a county jail for a period of not
less than 90 days or more than six months, or by both imprisonment
and a fine not exceeding five hundred dollars ($500), and shall not
be released on probation, parole, or any other basis until he or she
has served not less than 90 days.
(c) As used in this section, the following definitions apply:
(1) "Lawful business" means a reason for being present upon school
property which is not otherwise prohibited by statute, by ordinance,
or by any regulation adopted pursuant to statute or ordinance.
(2) "Continued pattern of unauthorized entry" means that on at
least two prior occasions in the same school year the defendant came
into any school building or upon any school ground, or street,
sidewalk, or public way adjacent thereto, without lawful business
thereon, and his or her presence or acts interfered with the peaceful
conduct of the activities of the school or disrupted the school or
its pupils or school activities, and the defendant was asked to leave
by a person specified in paragraph (1) of subdivision (a).
(3) "School" means any preschool or public or private school
having kindergarten or any of grades 1 to 12, inclusive.
(d) When a person is directed to leave pursuant to paragraph (1)
of subdivision (a), the person directing him or her to leave shall
inform the person that if he or she reenters the place within seven
days he or she will be guilty of a crime.
(e) This section shall not be utilized to impinge upon the lawful
exercise of constitutionally protected rights of speech or assembly.

SEC. 2. No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to
Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because
the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school
district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or
infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty
for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the
Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the
meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California
Constitution.

What is this bill supposed to address? What motivates it? Any particular incidents?

How could it be that a mobile message board be construed to immediately harm elementary and junior high kids or interfere with and disrupt a school or school activities?

Do parents retain the right to picket over shoddy education results?

Do unions which represent teachers in any location have issue with this piece of legislation concerning first amendment rights?

What about activities such as road repair, utility maintenance, trimming or removing trees? "Educators" are so goofy that a downed light pole is cause for classroom lock down and escalating the situation into a virtual national disaster by calling every legal guardian of every student.

Who ultimately decides what constitutes a disruption or threat, and how is that applied without prejudice or even malice? Just what is "willfully or knowingly"?

The bill may be well intentioned (I see perceived hordes of child molesters inspiring the bill), but I believe it to ultimately be just one more weapon to fortify schools against parents and just about anyone else who may unwittingly stroll down the sidewalk while blithely minding his own business. Maybe it's written so broadly that it wouldn't stand up in court, but then someone has to have their innocent activities unconstitutionally punished and have the resources for a court challenge.

I remember something about the authorities in the Inland 10-210 freeway corridor communities crushing cars impounded for street racing - until they crushed a car belonging to a kid whose parents had some money behind them and an attorney wanting to earn it.

Which one of those Sacramento wastrels wrote this thing anyway - don't we have a runaway deficit to address?

Assemblyman Mendoza's finer moments:

AB 1831 - Teacher Housing: This bill would require the Department of Education to produce a teacher housing report detailing the need for, and ability to implement, a program to better serve local communities by assisting teachers in purchasing homes located in the communities they serve. The bill would also require the report to contain specific information, by county, relating to housing for teachers.
Status: Passed Assembly, May 2008

Status: Signed by Governor, May 2009

AB 518 – Threading Sunset: This bill seeks to remove the sunset date exempting threading from the Barbering & Cosmetology Act.
Status: Held by the Assembly, January 2010

Status: Passed Assembly, May 2009

AB 78 - Pathway to Citizenship: Places an initiative on the June 2012 primary ballot asking voters if they would like to create a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who speak English, pay taxes, have worked in the U.S. for 5 years and have not been convicted of any felonies.
Status: Referred to Assembly Judiciary Committee and Assembly Committee on Elections and Redistricting. Hearing dates not yet set.

Redistricting. Hearing dates not yet set.

Status: Not yet referred to policy committee.

AB 1203 - Employee Release Time: Expands employee release time for union work.
Status: Not yet referred to policy committee.


Of course, something would be amiss if he, as an "educator" turned politician, didn't serve on some race based political committee or other race obsessed organization:

Vice Chair, California Latino Legislative Caucus

Mendoza dabbling in "Equal Rights"

Quote:
Mendoza Introduces Bill to Provide Equal Rights to Classified School Employees
Legislation Gives Classified Employees a Voice in Charter School Petition Process

SACRAMENTO, CA - Assemblymember Tony Mendoza (D-Norwalk) introduced AB 86 last week, a bill that would provide equal rights to classified employees to participate in the charter school petition process. If AB 86 passes through both houses of the legislature and is signed by Governor Brown, it would require at least one-half of permanent classified employees estimated to work at a charter school to sign a petition to start a new charter school, and it would also require at least 50 percent of permanent classified employees currently employed at a public school to sign a petition to convert an existing school into a charter school. The bill is sponsored by Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

"AB 86 would establish a fair process for classified employees to show their interest in being employed by a charter school," explains Assemblymember Mendoza.

This bill would provide classified employees the same rights as those afforded to teachers by allowing classified employees to participate in the petition signature process in the same manner as teachers when establishing new charter schools or converting existing schools into charters.

"Classified employees play an important role in our education system by assisting with special education classes, English learners, and a variety of other duties," says Assemblymember Mendoza. "It is clear that the creation of a charter school will impact classified employees, and I believe they should be given a voice in the process."

Assemblymember Mendoza, a public school teacher and current Chair of the California Latino Legislative Caucus, proudly serves the 56th District.

Whoa! What caused this?

From Mendoza press release on his website:

Quote:
California’s student population increased by 52% from 4 million to nearly 6.2 million between 1980 and 2008 - the equivalent to some state’s entire population.
