Newsom rescinds parole and release of San Bernardino killer

Gavin Newsom must be feeling the heat. Back in November we got word that Newsom was granting parole and release of San Bernardino County killer Rodney Patrick McNeil. We talked to outraged victim Shantel Haynes and SB County DA Jason Anderson who said under no conditions should McNeil be released.

Steve Gregory from KFI News broke the story that Newsom denied parole after finding out that McNeil was not as "rehabilitated" as was claimed.

From the SB Sun:

Gov. Gavin Newsom has reversed a parole board’s decision to release a former San Bernardino County probation officer convicted of the 1997 murder of his wife and unborn daughter at their Highland home. An advocate fighting violence against Native American women praised the decision.
The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office announced the governor’s decision and commended the efforts of the victim’s daughter, different groups and the community at a news conference on Monday, Grace Underwood, a spokeswoman for the DA’s Office, said.
District Attorney Jason Anderson was thrilled with the outcome, Underwood said.
Shantel Haynes’ work on the case included starting a petition on that drew 7,323 signatures, contacting the governor’s office and getting her mother’s tribe and two South Dakota politicians to write letters to the governor, Underwood said.

John & Ken spoke with Shantel Hayes moments after learning her mother's murderer was not being let out.

We think the recall effort may something to do with his sudden change of actions as of late. Too late Newsom.
