A new study
released by U.C Davis found an alarming connection between organophosphates and neurological delays in fetuses and children,
even at low levels of exposure.
The study found that women living within a mile of agricultural fields that are sprayed with pesticides were much more likely
to have children who are developmentally delayed and autistic, but itís not just agricultural crops that are soaked in pesticides.
The marijuana boon is creating itís own casualties. Pesticides commonly used on marijuana are Phosmet, Diazinon, and Avid.
According to the Department of Justice, in 2013 there were 2,447 domestic violence related calls in Stanislaus County. The actual
number of domestic violence incidents are closer to 10 times that amount. In fact 2/3rds of domestic violence victims do not call
police. Some victims are afraid to call and are threatened with violence if they do. If non life threatening injuries occur
and someone should happen to see it the victim often comes up with excuses that seem credible without raising a red flag.
is only when the victim is away from the abuser, sure that he can no longer harm her that she feels safe enough to talk about the
abuse and may be willing to involve law enforcement, but this depends on the level of fear the abuser has instilled. Domestic
a pattern of behavior that includes psychological, verbal, physical and/or sexual abuse. The violence is often sporadic
and leaves the victim living in a constant state of fear.
Q&A with community and anti drug activist Linda Taylor
By Lewis Davis
Linda Taylor answers questions on the AJ bail bond case
Q. Tell me about yourself.
A. Well, Iím a long time community and anti drug activist. I work with state and national anti
drug coalitions on issues related to marijuana legalization and the subsequent legalization of all drugs. I work to expose political
corruption and Iím a strong anti crime advocate. Iím also an anti crime/corruption blogger and write for the website StancoInsider.com.
Q. Did you work on the Aj bail bonds case?
A. Iím not a police officer so no I didnít work on the case.
Q. How were you
A. Well, I went in search of answers to the question ďDoes Stanislaus County have a Sanctuary Policy.Ē
Illegal immigrants are committing serious crimes in our community and bail bondsmen are posting bond knowing ICE will deport them
the next day. The cases never get prosecuted and bail bondsmen know itís easy money. The illegal immigrant then sneaks back into the
country, commits another crime and is bailed out again. ICE deports them again and they arenít held accountable for the second crime
either. Itís a racket. I met with several bail bondsmen about it and thatís when I heard the name Aleo Pontillo-AJ bail bonds for
the first time.
Q. There have been accusations made that someone in law enforcement may have told you to 'go after' AJ.
Is that true?
A. I hadnít heard his name before I met with bondsmen to discuss a sanctuary policy. No.
Salute our troops!
