Day 95 - Recap, meeting with Sheriff Doyle

Today a few of us met with Sheriff Doyle in his office for about 1 hour. The following persons attended:

  • Sheriff Bob Doyle
  • Captain Randy Throne
  • Lori Stone-Rubin from Supervisor Stones office
  • Hymie from Supervisor Ashley's office
  • "Molly"
  • "Clyde"
  • Myself
The purpose of the meeting was to address our concerns regarding various actions and/or inactions by members of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and to discuss how we can work better with the department.

I started out by getting right to the heart of the matter and asked Sheriff Doyle the following question:

"Do you feel the citizens of Mead Valley, and others, have the constitutional right under the First Amendment to protest the placement of a violent 2 time rapist into the community?"

Sheriff Doyle responded that he believed we did have the right to protest so long as we did it legally. He also added "I think you guys have done a pretty good job". We appreciated that Sheriff Doyle.

This was an important question because for a long time deputies really appeared to be trying to discourage us from protesting. They did not take our complaints seriously, they lied to us about various penal codes, etc..

Sheriff Doyle attributed this to the deputies not being sure of their roles and that they have never had to deal with a situation like this before.

The incident with the tweaker, Kirk Daniel Fletcher, was discussed and we learned that the deputy who took over the scene, Sgt. Anderson, is being investigated due to our complaints.

I want to make it clear that for about the past 4-6 weeks we have seen a noticable change in the behavior of the deputies. Some even smile and wave at us as they drive by.

We made it clear that our agenda was simply to get Dave Dokich out of the area and away from children so we do not end up with another Samantha Runnion or Anthony Martinez tragedy, that we were not professional activists, that we all would rather be doing other things with our time and that we were all just minding our own business until 3 months ago when parole dumped David Dokich on us.

We expressed our opinion that the parole division of CDCR could not be trusted. We have observed them for over 90 days and have documented the following:

  • On 2 separate occasions we have seen evidence of alcohol being in the residence, one of which the parole officers lied about to the deputies.
  • One parole agent lied about a battery by a parolee she witnessed.
  • One parole agent lied about his role in an assault on a protester.
  • The parole agents seldom enter the residence.
  • Lisa Abma informed us that she has an 8 year relationship with Harriet Cooks and that Harriet takes all the parolees other halfway homes refuse. Its clear that Abma does not want to jeapordize this relationship because Harriet make her job easier.
We asked Sheriff Doyle if his department could assist in insuring that Last Chance Enlightment was operating under what guidelines exist, lax as they may be:

  • 6 or fewer residents.
  • No alcohol
  • No pornographic materials
  • No visits by known felons
Sheriff Doyle said he was not adverse to this but stated he had to do it in concert with parole.

Sheriff Dolye also stated that the day was soon coming when the parole agents would stop watching Dokich on a daily basis. This is not unexpected to us because parole officials have said from the beginning that the day would come when Dokich would have to get a job and integrate back into society.

Sheriff Doyle said that because parole would have a less active role in monitoring Dokich that he would have to increase the amount of patrols in the area.

We all felt that Sheriff Doyle took us and the situation with David Allyn Dokich seriously. Both he and his legislative liason, Captain Randy Throne, were friendly and respectful towards us.

We want to thank Sheriff Doyle for taking the time to meet with us about this very serious issue and we look forward to working with him and his office in the future.

We did have about a dozen protesters out tonight. A new, very bright light has been installed at the clown house. It illuminates the inner gate on the driveway. They may be getting ready for the day when they no longer have parole agents at their disposal to escort vehicles in and out of the property.

We never did see any parole agents arrive. We will keep an eye out for parole agents, but they may have ceased their nightly babysitting duties.

Keep your kids safe.
