Please Vote NO on CA Prop 35 – Good Idea, Bad Approach

California’s Prop 35 is Chris Kelly’s misguided attempt to fight sex trafficking. It’s a good idea, but a bad way to go about it.  Inadequate training requirement for police.  Emphasis on criminal penalties may actually reduce restitution money available to victims.  Problems with who gets classified as traffickers, and thus tracked in CA databases as registered sex offenders. Most major newspapers oppose it.   People I know from the local coalition against human trafficking that understand the issues way better than I do, including @John_Vanek, urge a No vote on Proposition 35.

Please vote NO on Prop 35.

(and whether you agree or not, please at least vote! 🙂
