‘Our System Is Broken’: Zero-Bail Parolee Kills California Woman and Her Dogs, Burns Down Home

(CBS13) Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and Councilmember Katie Valenzuela say they are pushing for changes to the prison release system after the killing of a Land Park woman by a parolee.

Troy Davis, 51, is accused of sexually assaulting and killing 61-year-old Mary Tibbitts and her two dogs before setting the home on fire.

He was reportedly seen on a neighbor’s surveillance camera just a day before the killing.

Davis was recently released from prison under California’s zero bail policy – despite his criminal history including charges of violent crimes like assault with a deadly weapon and robbery.

In a joint statement released on Wednesday, Steinberg and Valenzuela called for changes to the reentry program.

“We cannot simply release people from jail onto the streets without working harder to ensure that they are getting the treatment and services they desperately need to prevent them from harming themselves or others,” Steinberg and Valenzuela wrote…

“Our system is broken.”
