Californians Are Battling Over Senate Bill 276

Californians Are Battling Over Senate Bill 276

With all of the extra means of communication around the world, there are more debates than ever. Some of them are very minor, such as whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza, and others are far more heated. The more heated the debate, the angrier both sides of the argument tend to become.

A perfect example of this is the ongoing debate over whether or not children should be vaccinated. Some parents believe that it is their right to choose whether or not to vaccinate their children. Other parents argue that since unvaccinated kids help spread the disease to other students, the parents of the unvaccinated child lose that right to choose.

This debate is coming to a head here in California as the state legislature looks at a new bill that could change how children are vaccinated in the state. Naturally, this has caused quite a stir amongst parents from both sides of the argument.

Does SB 276 Remove A Parent’s Right To Choose

California lawmakers are currently reviewing Senate Bill (SB) 276. This bill would change how parents could get permission to not have their child vaccinated before going to school. Currently, parents simply need to get a doctor’s note of approval in order to not have their child vaccinated. SB 276 seeks to change that by removing that power from doctors and giving it to state public health officials instead.

This simple change would make it much more difficult for parents who are against vaccinations to have their child exempt from needing the vaccines. Due to that fact, many anti-vaccination parents are up in arms over this proposed bill. They argue that this bill would remove the parent’s right to make decisions for their child.

On the other side of the fence, people are arguing that anti-vaccination parents are making choices that not only affect their child, but the children of everyone else at the school. Therefore, the parent shouldn’t be able to make that decision on their own, since the results are so far reaching. This claim is backed up by the recent reemergence of measles, along with other once life threatening diseases that were thought to be eliminated in the United States thanks to vaccines.

Why Are Some Parents Against Vaccines?

The idea of anti-vaccinations has steadily gained traction over the recent decades, but where did it come from? After all, vaccinations helped immunize a child against potentially life-threatening diseases. Well, some people believe that vaccines cause autism in children. This belief started with a medical study.

Back in 1998, a British doctor named Andrew Wakefield released a report on a study he conducted that claimed to find a link between vaccines and autism. However, shortly after the “study” was published, it was discovered that Wakefield’s research only examined 12 people, far too small of a sample size to come to any concrete decisions. In addition, Wakefield altered and manipulated data to better support his belief.

Once all of that was realized, the paper was retracted and Wakefield’s medical license was revoked. However, none of this happened before the news of the supposed link between vaccines and autism spread like wildfire.

Even though the study was retracted and dozens upon dozens of new studies have since disproved Wakefield’s claim, people still choose to belief it. Unfortunately, this puts thousands of children at risk of contracting dangerous diseases such as measles, polio, whooping cough, and diphtheria.

Will Californians Have To Get Vaccinated?

The debate currently going up in Sacramento surrounding SB 276 will continue to be very heated. Both opposing sides whole heartedly agree that they are right, and the other side is wrong. No matter how California lawmakers decide to side in this debate, there will undoubtedly be some uproar.

What do you think of SB 276?

Should parents be allowed to choose whether or not their child gets vaccinated or is this decision too important for parents to just opt out of? Let us know what you think in the comments down below.

 

Putting Chalk On Tires Deemed Unconstitutional

Putting Chalk On Tires Deemed Unconstitutional

One of the great things about our government is how laws can change. As our country grows and beliefs and ideas changes, our laws can adapt with the times. This has been done countless times over the course of America’s history and it continues to happen to this very day. In fact, an interesting change has recently taken place in regards to parking violations.

Most cities have pretty strict guidelines on when, where, and how residents can park their cars. These rules can change from city to city, and even street to street. However, the results are always pretty much the same: a small fine and/or the possibility of being towed.

Different cities and law enforcement agencies have different methods for how they monitor parking on city streets. However, thanks to a new court ruling, one method will have to be dropped, in some states anyways, since a court decided it threatens a person’s constitutional rights.

Why Do The Rules Exist?

When it comes to why these strict rules exist for parking, it boils down either to safety or fairness. For instance, parking in front of a fire hydrant can pose a danger in the event that a fire breaks out nearby and fire fighters need access to the hydrant. Similarly, double parking, the act of parking a car parallel to a car that is parked along a curb, can be dangerous since it often places a car in the way of traffic.

Since parking spots are such a rare commodity in cities, many areas often pose time limits for how long vehicles can be parked there. The idea here is to keep cars moving out of the way in order to allow new drivers to park their own vehicles.

Most of the time, cities enforce their parking laws via parking meters. These devices keep drivers on a time limit, and charge them accordingly if they exceed that limit. As helpful as these devices can be for cities, not every city out there has parking meters installed. After all, they can be very expensive to install. This leads to cities using older methods to monitor parking, such as using parking enforcement officers.

Chalking Tires Is Deemed Unconstitutional

One method used to monitor parking is to mark tires of vehicles with chalk. Parking enforcement officers use the chalk to signal how long cars have been parked. This helps them determine when a vehicle has been stationary for too long. However, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has determined that this method of parking enforcement is unconstitutional.

The court determined that the method invaded a person’s constitutional rights since the marking of the chalk was similar to a warrantless search of a citizen’s possessions. The search is unwarranted since there is no clear proof that the driver of the vehicle will break the law, there is only and assumption that the driver might break the law. This decision was reached largely due to the fact that this sort of enforcement seemed to be more focused on raising revenue for the city rather than enforcing safety.

This decision means that in the states of Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee, parking enforcement officers will no longer legally be allowed to chalk vehicles tires as a way to determine if a car has overstayed its welcome in that particular spot.

How Will This Ruling Affect California?

While this recent court ruling does not directly affect the state of California, one can safely assume that other states will be taking notice of this event. The state of California is well known for being forward thinking, and this could very well become a law in the state in future. If that were the case, law enforcement agencies would have to rely on parking meters to determine if a car has been parked in a spot for too long.

What do think of this court ruling, is chalking a vehicles tire to monitor how long it has been parked unconstitutional?

Should California and other states adopt a similar ruling? Let us know what you think in the comments down below.

 

Don’t Leave The Scene Of An Accident Too Soon

Don’t Leave The Scene Of An Accident Too Soon

Nobody ever wants to be in a car accident, even a minor one. A small accident could put a bump or ding on a person’s vehicle, while larger ones can result in severe injuries and even death. Due to this fact, people are afraid of getting in accidents, and rightfully so. No one wants to be responsible for hurting someone else. Unfortunately, accidents do happen.

When an accident happens, no matter how little or how bad it may be, a driver needs to remain on the scene to deal with it. If a driver leaves the scene of the accident before it is resolved, they could be charged with hit and run. That is a crime no one ever wants to be accused of.

A Driver’s Responsibility

Here in the state of California, a driver is responsible for handling any accidents that they are involved in, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. This means that if a driver hits another vehicle, or a person, they have to remain on the scene to help out as best as they can. If a driver is hit by another vehicle, they still have to stay on the scene until the accident has been handled.

In either situation, if the driver leaves the scene of the accident without first identifying themselves, they could be charged with hit and run. To identify themselves at the scene of an accident, a driver must stop their car and provide the other party involved in the accident with their identifying information. This includes the driver’s:

  • Name
  • Contact information
  • Current address
  • Driver’s License (upon request)
  • Vehicle registration (upon request)
  • The information of the vehicle’s owner, if the driver isn’t the owner

Though a driver should stay on the scene until it is completely dealt with, they can leave after they have given the other party this information if they are in a hurry to get somewhere. At least with the information given, the other party will be able to contact them to sort out the accident.

When it comes to hitting a parked car, a person should leave a note with all of the above information with a description of what happened, in a discreet, yet easy to find spot. The person should then contact the local police department and alert them of the accident. Doing all of these creates a record of the incident and shows that the drive tried to remedy the situation.

Penalties Of Committing Hit And Run

Under California Vehicle Codes (VC) 20002 and 20001, hit and run crimes can either be charged as misdemeanors or as felonies. How the crime is charged is dependent on what was damaged during the car accident that the driver fled from. If property was damaged, then the driver will face misdemeanor charges. If a person was injured or killed, then the driver will face felony charges.

The consequences of VC 20002, misdemeanor hit and run, are:

  • A max fine of $1,000.
  • A jail sentence of up to 6 months.
  • 3 years informal probation.
  • 2 points on driver’s record.
  • Restitutions to victims.

The consequences of VC 20001, felony hit and run, are:

  • A fine between $1,000 and $10,000.
  • A prison stay of 3 or 4 years.
  • 2 points on driver’s record.
  • Restitutions to victims.

A Driver Is Better Off Staying

Being charged with hit and run in California is no small matter. Hit and runs are taken very seriously, and can cost a driver more than just money. In addition, a driver can be accused of hit and run regardless of whether or not the accident was their fault. This means that by fleeing the scene of an accident, a driver can make circumstances worse for themselves. They may not have been in any legal trouble had they stayed, but by running, the driver becomes guilty of hit and run.

This is why it is best for drivers to just stop and pullover when they’ve been in an accident. Running will just make things worse.

What Counts As Forgery In California?

What Counts As Forgery In California?

There are a lot of different crimes out here in the state of California. Most people are aware of many of these crimes and know not to commit them. However, there are a few crimes out there that people aren’t always so sure about. For many of these crimes, the only times people hear about them are on their TV screens.

A perfect example of this is the crime of forgery. People see it played out all of the time on television, but they don’t really worry about committing the crime themselves. For starters, most of them aren’t planning on recreating a famous piece of art in the hopes of selling it for boatloads of money. However, that is just one type of forgery. There is a much more common type out there that a person may accidentally commit without even knowing.

It is far more common for people to forge a person’s signature or a document. This kind of crime happens quite frequently, and is often referred to as a white collar crime, which is a crime that is non-violent and financially motivated.

What Is Forgery

The state of California has its own law against the act of forgery. California Penal Code (PC) 470 outlines what acts count as forgery, and what the consequences for those acts are. For starters, a person that commits forgery whenever they intend to commit fraud by doing one of the following:

  • Sign someone else’s name on a document.
  • Fake a seal on document.
  • Fake another person’s handwriting.
  • Falsify a legal document.
  • Present someone with a false document.

While this legal definition covers a lot of different potential crimes, there is one important thing to take note of. This is the fact that forgery only happens when a person intends to commit the crime. There is a large difference between someone getting another person to sign a fake document when neither knows its fake, versus when a person gets someone to a document that they know is fake.

When it comes to signing someone else’s name on an important document, it is possible to do so without committing forgery. If a person has consent or permission form the person in question, they can sign their name for them without worry of committing forgery. This means that loved one’s can sign checks for one another in order to deposit them without fear. It is only when a person tries to steal someone else’s money that they can get into trouble for forgery.

Consequences Of Committing Forgery In California

Here in the state of California, forgery is known as a wobbler offense. This means that it can either be charged a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances of the crime and the person who committed the crime. If the attempted forgery is valued at more than $950, than the accused will likely face felony charges, and if it is under that amount then it will likely face misdemeanor charges. In addition, if the person has been accused of certain violent felonies or crimes that require them to register as a sex offender, then they will likely face felony charges regardless of the amount of the forgery.

When charged as a misdemeanor, forgery carries the following consequences:

  • Up to one year in jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.
  • Informal probation.
  • Restitutions to the victims.

When charged as a felony, forgery’s consequences increase to:

  • 16 months, 2 years, or 3 years in prison.
  • A max fine of $10,000.
  • Probation.
  • Restitutions to the victims.

Most People Have Nothing To Worry About

The crime of forgery in California is a lot broader than most people realize. However, it is also a lot harder to commit than what people think. A person needs to know that they are committing forgery in order for them to actually commit forgery. If a person isn’t trying to steal money from someone else or falsify documents, then they aren’t guilty of the crime of forgery.

This fact can help some people rest easy knowing that they can’t get into legal trouble just because they signed their spouses name on a check in order to deposit it.

 

Is It Possible To Steal Something That Was Delivered To You?

Is It Possible To Steal Something That Was Delivered To You?

Most people are aware of the fact that stealing is wrong. They know that if they take something that isn’t theirs without permission, they could end up in big legal trouble. That is something nobody wants to deal with, which is why most people don’t take stuff that doesn’t belong to them.

However, what should people do when things sort of just fall into their laps? In today’s modern world, packages arrive at peoples’ homes all of the time. Most of the time these packages are delivered properly, but sometimes packages get delivered to the wrong address or the wrong thing was shipped to the person. In these instances, what should a person do? Do they try to return it or keep it as a nice gift? After all, the company messed up, not the person ordering the item, right?

As it turns out, the answer isn’t so simple. This is still relatively new territory as far as the law is concerned, and one Massachusetts man learned this the hard way.

How The Story Goes

A Massachusetts man recently made headlines for being arrested for stealing a TV that was mistakenly delivered to his house. He had recently ordered a 75-inch flat screen TV valued at around $1,200. What was delivered instead was an 86-inch flat screen valued at double the price, around $2,700. The man kept the mistaken delivery, accepting it as a bit of good luck. He even did a quick internet search to see if he could get into trouble for keeping the TV.

On the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) website, he found what he thought was the answer he was looking for. The site stated that if a person receives merchandise they didn’t order, they have a legal right to keep it. The man took this to mean that he could keep the TV. However, this particular line was talking about instances where companies try to send people unordered products for free, then demand payment for said products.

The delivery company soon realized its mistake and began to try and contact the man. However, the man never felt any obligation to answer those calls. According to the delivery company, the calls were either ignored or answered by a male voice claiming to be the father of the man in question, who promised to pass the news along to his son.

After a few days of getting nowhere with this, the delivery company contacted the police and filled them in on the situation. A pair of police officers were sent to the home where they met the man in the driveway. They spoke to him about the TV, which one of the officers could see mounted on the wall through a front window. The man denied being home to receive the package when it arrived, despite that the delivery man was able to identify him from a photo lineup. The man stated that one of his employees must have signed for it. He asked to see the signature on the delivery slip, and claimed that it wasn’t his.

The officers left and later got a warrant to arrest the man. As the police sought a warrant, one officer stated that the man clearly lied and refused to answer his telephone, and would likely lie about receiving a summon and will not show up for court. Shortly after, a group of officers surrounded the house and arrested the man. They charged him with felony larceny by false pretense and a second charge of misleading a police. The man was released from jail shortly after and is currently looking for a defense lawyer. If found guilty, the man will face up to 15 years in prison and several thousands of dollars in fines and legal fees.

What Happens Next?

When it comes down to who was right and wrong in this case, no one is quite sure. As stated earlier, this case is rather unique and unheard of. One criminal defense lawyer, who has worked with law for 20 years, argues that larceny in Massachusetts requires the actual taking of property, which didn’t technically occur in this scenario. Another lawyer says that the large price of the item probably necessitated that the man report the incident to the company.

For those looking to avoid a similar situation, it is always best to contact the delivery company or sender of the package to alert them of the error. Depending on the item, some companies have been known to let the error stand, chalking it up to their own mistake. Once that is done, the person should try to help them out wherever possible that way a person cannot be accused of stealing something that was delivered to them.

What do you think of this?

Should the man have tried to return the TV or was he right to keep it for himself? Let us know what you think in the comments down below.

 

Are Nanny Cams Legal In California?

Are Nanny Cams Legal In California?

There is no denying that most parents only want what is best for their children. They want their children to be happy and successful. Unfortunately, in today’s fast moving and expensive world, it can be hard for parents to always be there for their child. Typically, people try to get trusted friends or family members to look after their children, but that isn’t an option for everyone. This leads to many parents hiring caregivers to watch over their children while they are away.

As much as parents should be able to trust the person that is watching over their child when they are gone, there is reason to be wary. There have been far too many cases where children were abused by the very people hired to take care of them.

As horrible as this is, advancements in technology have granted parents the ability to keep an eye on their nannies, even when they are at work. Nanny cams are simple pieces of tech that allow parents to monitor how a caregiver acts when no one else is around. However, given how California is about recording people, are these cameras even legal within the state?

California And Recordings

When it comes to recording conversations, California is known as a two-party consent state. This means that in order for a person to legally record a private conversation between themselves and another person, both people have to agree to the recording. Any audio recordings that are acquired without consent from both parties means that they cannot be used as evidence in cases.

However, when it comes to recording people on video, people can record others without consent so long as the video subject is not in an area where they could reasonably expect privacy. In other words, if someone is in a public place, like a city sidewalk, they could not reasonably expect privacy and therefore can be recorded.

Some examples of where people could privacy include:

  • Public restrooms
  • Changing rooms
  • Locker rooms
  • Their home
  • Their backyard
  • Private property that they have permission to be on

If a person is in any of the areas or areas similar to this, then they have a right to privacy and cannot be recorded.

California And Nanny Cams

When this law gets applied to nanny cams, some people might assume that this means these kinds of cameras cannot be used in the state of California. However, that is not the case. Parents can use nanny cams here in California, they just have to be mindful of where they place the cameras.

Basically, the rule of privacy still applies for the caregiver, meaning that cameras cannot be placed in any area where a person might expect privacy. This includes bathrooms and the caregiver’s room, if they are a live-in nanny. However, since the nanny is working in someone else’s home, they cannot reasonably expect privacy in that place. This also works inversely in that since the nanny is not the owner of the home, they cannot install cameras within it.

However, if the camera also records audio as well as visual, then they parents may need to alert the nanny of this fact. This is due to the fact that with audio recordings, the devices could pick up what is supposed to be a private conversation. This is best done in writing so that there is proof of this warning. If a parent fails to do this, then any audio from the recording could not be used in a court of law.

Nanny Cams Are Meant To Keep Kids Safe

Parents just want to ensure that their children are safe and sound, even when the parent isn’t there in person. Nanny cams allow them to do this. Some nanny cams are even advanced enough to let a parent view the camera from their place of work. If a parent does have a camera like this, they should be sure that it is password protected so that some unknown person can’t hack into it.

What do you think of nanny cams and California’s laws about recording people?

Should parents have to warn nannies about being recorded, or should they be allowed to do it in secret? Maybe parents shouldn’t be able to record nannies at all. Let us know what you think in the comments down below.
