Town Hall Web Link is reporting that Gavin Newsom is preparing to release this violent police officer killer, Ruben Eliceo Vasquez, from prison by commuting his sentence.

It seems as if every cop killer is given a 'get out of jail' free card by the Democrats. Can the Pleasanton Weekly follow up on Newsom's outrageous and appalling plan to determine if this is true or not? No wonder Californians are no longer safe.

The entire situation is tragic. And the fact that Democrats are commuting sentences of criminals who have killed police officers is outrageous.

Angela Schwab, the Dublin police officer who was taken hostage by these 3 criminals at the Outback Steakhouse, was married to Mark Dunakin, the police officer who was also killed in the line of duty when he was an Oakland police officer. She was driving home from Chico State just 8 weeks ago after delivering her son cookies and was hit by a truck on Highway 99. She died as well.

So her three kids are left behind. They lost their father to a cop killer in Oakland (3 other police officers were also killed) in a traffic stop and now their mother has passed away.

Killer being released from prison?

Wrong. The guy applied for commutation, which means nothing about the governor releasing him. It's not any different than other inmates applying for commutation. If nothing happens and his application is denied move on.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if Newsom commutes or pardons the killers. After all, isn't that what he has done over and over since he became governor? A letter writing campaign has started to prevent the governor from doing this. See below for more information:
