I do question the use though of if someone is in prison or going for a extended period why place them on the list and spend money defending the right to list those individuals at this time. That seems to be misguided especially considering the same restriction could be added as a probation term at release.
On Heated Debate Over Gang Injunction

Ken I realize you like to fall back on reactionary rhetoric in many responses but most of your comments are usually rooted in some sensible points.
Your analogy doesn't really makes sense however since the people named in the injunction have through their own actions which seems to be felonies incorporating violence put them on the list. The TSA restrictions impact everyone who chooses to travel. Apple vs Oranges and all that...
Does society have a right to place some restrictions on people who commit sexual crimes against children? If so why not a gang member with a history of violent felonies? At least the gang member can eventually get off the list if they don't continue to be a a@#$%&e at some point the ways its designed.

So its okay to have a sex offender database, and keep them away from schools and places where children congregate even after they finish their prison terms but it is not okay for violent gang members living in neighborhoods?
Correct me if I'm wrong but to "earn" a spot on the list you have to have committed multiple felonies with a pattern of behavior correct?
And John_Adams since the citys own numbers say they have a $267,000,000.00 unfunded pension problem I don't think the money spent on this would solve it.

So the drunk gang members were guilty of a hate crime in his murder also odd that didn't come out at the trial or reporting on it? The two victims the story refers to above wonder if they fit your convenient theory. Back to the question though a injunction may have saved his life since some of the people who killed him (and injured the two victims in the above story) are on the injunction list, does that make any difference to you?

Ken it might have saved the life of George Ied, is that unimportant to you?

I dont think Councilmember Murillo is a idiot, I do think she has some philosophical issues with the injunction. I was merely pointing out that they should consider facts like that in their consideration, the impact to individuals and society vs those whose behavior brought a injunctions effects onto themselves.

I wonder if there had been a gang injunction if George Ied would have been murdered? Something for the opponents including Councilmember Murillo to consider.

JLocke there doesn't have to be a reason, the legal basis for a search of a parolee is at will by any LEO and does not require a search warrant.
from the prisoners rights handbook:
"The standard CDCR “Notice and Conditions of Parole” requires every parolee to agree that “[y]ou and your residence and any property under your control may be searched without a warrant by an agent of the Department of Corrections or any law enforcement officer.”This requirement has been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. Consequently, a search can be conducted without the parolee’s consent, without a search warrant, without probable cause, and without a reasonable suspicion that the parolee has violated parole. Parole agents and other law enforcement officers may also freely search a parolee’s property after a parole hold is placed and the parolee is placed in custody but before the BPH has revoked parole."

..."Booking reports indicate this may have been the last time Baumann resisted arrest"...
With his death, I doubt the "may have been the last time" is necessary or accurate unless Nick is a over the top fan of "The Walking Dead".

Freedom of Speech - but you can't shout fire in a crowded theater, some people by their own actions can forfeit those rights and have them infringed upon for the safety of society. Like I said Ken actual legal minds and courts have upheld injunctions all the way up to the Federal level so it would appear they are not unconstitutional.
