Inmate Released to Reduce Prison Overcrowding Cost Four Lives in Northridge Shooting Accused Killer Had Long Criminal History PDF Print E-mail

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The state deliberately ignored inmates' serious prior offenses and released dangerous parolees into unsuspecting communities, county officials charged while discussing the oversight of a probationer accused of killing four people outside an unlicensed boarding house in Northridge.

To comply with a federal court order to reduce overcrowding in state prisons, state officials shifted responsibility for non-violent, non-serious, non-sexual offenders to county jurisdictions. But when classifying prisoners as what Sheriff Lee Baca calls "non, non, nons," the state chose to consider only the most recent conviction, not earlier crimes.

"The state had to back into a number" to get down to about 30,000 prisoners to meet the terms of the court order and were well aware of the choices they were making, county Chief Probation Officer Jerry Powers said.

Supervisors Michael Antonovich and Zev Yaroslavsky said they warned state officials about appropriately classifying prisoners more than a year ago. "There might be four people in Northridge alive today if they had taken the wise counsel we gave them," Yaroslavsky said. Luis Patino, spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, said "We enforce the law as written," but could not comment further on the case.

Representatives of the governor's office could not be reached for immediate comment. The accused killer, Ka Pasasouk, 31, had a long criminal history, including robbery and drug-related offenses. Released from state prison in January after completing his sentence, Pasasouk was placed under the supervision of the county's Probation Department instead of state parole officials. Antonovich said Pasasouk repeatedly failed to comply with the terms and conditions of his release, resisted rehabilitative programs and was arrested multiple times over the past 11 months.

Powers said his officers had little ability to compel probationers -- even those with serious mental health issues -- to get treatment, unless they are rearrested. Of the 12,000 former state parolees released to county supervision since the realignment took effect Oct. 1, 2011, nearly 8,000 have been rearrested and 799 have been turned over to the federal government for deportation, Powers said.

Team members care for thousands of the region's sickest children with heart conditions, including fetuses, newborns, infants, children, adolescents, and adult, long-term patients with pediatric cardiovascular conditions. At Children's families experience coordinated, next-generation care, delivered by a compassionate, multidisciplinary team of leaders in the pediatric cardiology field. One of the largest pediatric cardiovascular programs in the region. Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
