She served her time. She should be home with her family.

she should not be given any special treatment as she showed no remorse for over 20 years. She lived a lie and is therefore a liar and deserves what she gets. So what if she had a great life in Minnesota, it was still a lie and during all that time apparently couldn't care less about those she impacted in California. Heck, she deceived her family and friends here so what kind of friend is/was she really?

and get over it!!!!! California is facing the biggest financial crisis in it's history that is only overshadowed by the U.S Financial crisis and the law enforcement officials and police are spending taxpayer time and money debating if a parolee should spend her 1 YEAR of parole on a beach in California or the suburban streets of St. Paul, MN. Come on people can't we all just get along???

Granted she was a fugative, but she did establish roots. She has children and family here. She doesn't have anything there. She did just fine all those years as a fugitive, why not let her finish it out in Minnesota. We let sex offenders in the neighborhoods, why not a reformed radical with roots and ties to the community? I guess common sense was thrown out the window!

Why can they not leave this alone. How many other letters like this have they sent? I am sure none. There are so many other issues these people should be worring about. This whole thing needs to be stopped and go away. She has served the sentence she was given. Why are they not taking all of this up with the judge that did that. The St Paul Police has also been very vocal on this issue. What happens now if, god forbid, something happens at this residence and they need help. Are they going to show like they would anyone else? Remember they have news crew and people waiting for her to come home. To much time spend on all of this.

This is the same people in riot gear who discourage any sort of protest, peaceful or otherwise. It's meant to intimidate the public, saying, "Don't you dare threaten our power." Let her come home!

I was pleased to see the response of the Corrections Officials in California, who used evidence-based research and best practice criteria to make the call. They acted like true professional and did not let emotions and politics rule the day.
