The Lisa Abma Report



For those of you that read this blog on a regular basis, you know it's not simply about David Allyn Dokich. While the placement of a high risk sex offender into our community prompted massive protests and subsequently this blog, we soon realised there is more to this issue than just one man.

While the original purpose of this blog was to create a daily log of the protesting, as the days became weeks and weeks became months, I felt it was necessary to write about all the various things that happen when these halfway homes for child molesters and sex offenders operate in residential neighborhoods. We have had contact with members of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors and their staff, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, other elected officials, parole, parolees, other child molesters in the halfway house were Dokich resides and protesters from other communities that have a similiar plight as our own. This is all part of the story, therefore I write about it here.

On Thursday, November 3rd, while protesting in the afternoon in front of the halfway house where convicted child molester and high risk sex offender David Allyn Dokich resides, an unmarked parole vehicle pulled to the side of the road. From the passenger side emerged parole supervisor Lisa Abma. Some protesters recognized her because she has been out here before. She was trying to serve Cease and Desist orders on protesters but apparently did not know one protester from the other. She kept trying to give the orders to the wrong people and ended up leaving them in the dirt beside the road.

We have video of this incident. Click the videos link and look for 'Lisa Abma Gone Wild'. But before you watch the video, read the following so you know all the facts of the situation.

Lisa Abma made some false allegations against me, claiming I have written that she is David Allyn Dokich's parole agent. That is false. I have never written that parole supervisor Lisa Abma is Dokich's parole agent. I don't even know who Dokich's parole agent is. I don't know if he has one agent or ten. Don't know and up to this point I did not care.

The Cease and Desist order states the following: "You are hereby put on notice that NONE of the statements made on the David Dokich Blog are factually accurate or true".


Well that's a bold statement. It's also is false statement.

Since parole supervisor Lisa Abma has taken it upon herself to make false accusations about me and further inject herself into this story, I am now forced to write more about her, things I have not written about before because I saw no need. Well now I need to.

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

Our first contact with parole supervisor Lisa Abma occured in early July. A parole agent assigned to watch convicted child molester David Allyn Dokich pulled a stupid stunt in his vehicle and nearly hit a protester in what appeared to be an attempt to frighten her.

The protester and parole supervisor Lisa Abma spoke via phone. According to the protester, Lisa Abma referred to the parole agent in question as a "buffoon" and said that Harriet Cooks had been doing this for 16 years (as if that was supposed to calm our fears). When the protester suggested to Lisa Abma that she would feel bad if something happened to a child because of this halfway house, Lisa Abma replied, according to the protester, that she would not feel bad because she was "just doing her job".

Our next contact with parole supervisor Lisa Abma was in early August and was the result of one of the child molesters in the Last Chance halfway home throwing an alcoholic beverage into the face of a protester.

According to one protester, parole supervisor Lisa Abma said that Harriet Cooks was the only one who would take David Allyn Dokich and that she had worked with Harriet Cooks for 8 years.

According to yet another protester, during a 30 minute phone conversation that was prompted by the alcohol incident, parole supervisor Lisa Abma said there is no alcohol there because it's a sober living home, said yet again that Harriet Cooks takes people no one else will and that Harriet Cooks runs her house great. When ask if Dokich could be moved Lisa Abma replied, according to the protester, "where would you like me to put him?" According to the protester, parole supervisor Lisa Abma also said "if any of my parolees are doing anything wrong I need to know about it".

On August 3rd parole supervisor Lisa Abma arrived at the halfway house, apparently to look into the alcohol issue that happened two days prior. She was in the house for about 10 minutes. She walked past us in a hurry, simply saying "bye" before getting into her vehicle and speeding off. She never said she did not find any alcohol.

On September 1st, a van full of what appeared to be teenagers arrived at the Last Chance halfway house. We provided the Riverside County District Attorney's office with the video of this incident. Click the video link and look for 'Teenagers at the clown house' to see for yourself.

The DA's office told us that they spoke with parole supervisor Lisa Abma and she denied any of the girls seen in the video were under age. Unfortunately for her we had a 2005 yearbook from Thomas Rivera middle school that proved at least one of the girls seen in the video was a minor. The DA's office told us Lisa Abma later apologised for the mistake.

Well that about covers our contact with parole supervisor Lisa Abma in the past.

Now let's examine her false claim that I have written that she is David Allyn Dokich's parole agent. The following is what I have written about parole supervisor Lisa Abma in the past. Let's see how many times I said Lisa Abma was David Allyn Dokich's parole agent:

Aug 3 - Day 90
Lisa Abma from the Moreno Valley parole office arrived at about the same time. She had said earlier she would look into the alcohol issues at the half way house. We don't have much faith in her because she has stated that she has an 8 year relationship with Harriet Cooks and that Harriet takes all the cases from her that other group homes refuse. She was in the house for about 10 minutes, walked past us to her vehicle and said 'bye'. Thanks Lisa, that was helpful.

In this case I did not identify Lisa Abma's position in the parole department and I never said she was David Allyn Dokich's parole agent as she claims.


Aug 8 - Day 95
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.

Again I did not identify Lisa Abma's position in the parole department and I never said she was David Allyn Dokich's parole agent as she claims.

Sept 30 - day 150
This halfway house is a 'cash cow' as we have been told. Parole agent Lisa Abma and Harriet Cooks, who runs the clown house, are buddies. Lisa is not going to let her pal get burned. If she did then she would have no where to send these low lifes.

Here while I did not write that Lisa Abma was David Allyn Dokich's parole agent, I did demote Lisa Abma to a parole agent when she is a supervisor. I typed 'agent' when I should have typed 'supervisor'. Very sinister on my part, don't ya think? It's certainly worthy of a cease and desist order. O.K., that was sarcasm, I have to choose my words carefully, I certainly don't want to upset parole supervisor Lisa Abma. Hey look, I got it right that time.

The Cease and Desist order clearly states that NONE of the statements made here are true. Interesting, perhaps it was an evil clone of Lisa Abma that had all the phone conversations with various protesters and made the trip out to the halfway house to look for alcohol.

Would they at least admit I have her work phone number right? Come on, throw me a bone.

Beyond what I have written about parole supervisor Lisa Abma, which until this point was not much, there is the issue of comments left by visitors to this blog.

Various courts have ruled that comments left by visitors on internet message boards, blogs, etc.. are opinions. There is nothing wrong with opinions, everyone has one. A term has even been coined for these comments, 'hyperbole'.

It would seem that Lisa Abma is trying to silence the public regarding her participation in the operation of this halfway house for child molesters and rapists. Fortunately there are anti-SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) laws in this state and the courts recognise that 'defamation' suits are often SLAPP suits in disquise.

Keep in mind I am not an attorney but I did stay in a Holiday Express Inn last night.

So what's next? That's up to parole supervisor Lisa Abma.

I started this blog to keep the public informed as to what happens when a high risk sex offender who has preyed on children in the past is placed into a community with children.

Beyond the general public, I write for the victims, one of which contacted me just a few nights ago and said she sleeps better at night being able to read this blog to stay informed.

That's all the motivation I need to keep on blogging.
