THE REAL A.J.


I first fell for A.J. because he loved animals. Here he is with his dog Thumbelina. Really, D.A. Wiley....you're going to give a guy with a dog named Thumbelina, life in prison??????

  1. Today is the first day of seeing your program and I think its awesome. My boyfriend is familiar with the prison life. Since getting with me he has figured out that there is more to life and he now actually has someone who cares for him and he cares about. I am so touched with your story and I am so sorry for what you and your family are going through. I will prayer for you.

  2. Tia, I work for CDCR as part of their medical staff and I met AJ a couple months ago. Nice guy. I've been a big fan of Pit Bulls and Parolees and I myself own two rescue pit bulls. I know firsthand how corrupt CDCR is and it is absolutely ridiculous that AJ may be facing life when sex offenders walk free. I am so sorry that your family is facing this struggle.. AJ should be home with you guys and helping you rescue dogs, not wasting taxpayer dollars rotting in a cell. Our legal system is seriously fucked up..

  3. Tia...please give AJ our best from Vegas! I'm a huge pitbull fan, and recently had to put my Kizka down which broke my heart. Tried to get a pup, who ended up having an inoperable heart tumor at 12 weeks old, and had to put him down too. Taking a break from giving my heart to another one until I'm ready, sort of like you and Duke, which is a story I can relate to very well. Anyways, I was shocked to see the court clip and learn now that the bail is set so high and how they seem to be screwing him over big time. This is seriously how corrupt the system is now? I knew it was bad, but this is really just insane how they are treating AJ, and if they are doing this to him, then I can't even imagine what they are doing to others!! I wish there was something I could do, but know that we fans are behind you and wish you and AJ could get back to running your wonderful shelter and program like you want to!! If anything, they should give AJ some credit for time just for the re-entry program that you guys have for the newly released parolees!!

  4. Would a letter writing campaign help? There are senators and state reps and even the governor himself that could intervene. I sure would like to back that DA in a corner and read him the riot act. What the hell is he thinking? Is he trying to a political job and is trying to make AJ an example or a stepping stone to another position? This is seriously screwed up!! Why don't we all flood his office with mail and anyone else who will listen? Hang in there Tia and everyone. It will all work out fine.

  5. Tia, the site on the 3 strikes law...

    WWW.facts1.com - doesn't pull up under that.
    I pulled it up under -WWW.facts1.org.

    I believe it's supposed to be 'ORG' not 'COM'.

    Praying for you guys,this whole case is ABSURD. Especially with the NON violent charge, his current accomplishments, the fact that he became an asset to society. Isn't that what 'reformed' is supposed to mean? I watched the court hearings that were aired. Judges with the 'God syndrome', DA's as well....
    Injustice IS injustice, no matter who is doing it. Using their power for personal agendas, media, whatever....is NOT what that 'oath' is about. Our local 'God' is Judge E Futch who claims to 'be making a stand', yet ruins more people then he 'helps'.
    It is hell and near impossible to beat the bastards, if anyone can, you can. I have wondered, if my info is correct this was 'stolen property' brought there by another....ANY chance that person would own up to this?
    Many are behind you two, truly hope he is home soon and you two, all there helping, can get on with the endless good you are doing in many areas.
    Postive energy your way, LP

  6. first i watch the show...well reruns atleast i am proud owner of a 75lb. english bully. ok now you know i am an animal lover with bad grammer skills.i know the ins and outs of the justice system i was once a law breaker and then i matured.i just think you guys have publicity cameras and alot of resorces(i am amazed that a anonamous person didnt put up the bail). think of the guy such as myself,never made over 30k in a year and from a small town noone really knows me. what chance did i have when i was wrongly treated and accused. I would always say to myself well i got away with things and didnt get caught so now im being punished for smoething i didnt do,it all works out in the wash.Thats not how it should be though and i hope that the light that is being shined on AJ's situation will reflect some lumens over the justice system as a whole. to my understanding the 3 strikes law was for violent crimes. i would think if anything this would be tried as a habitual offender but i am uncertain of the first 2 offences so i donot know anyway i have been in that position (AJ's) and my wife was in your shoes as well alot of prayers go out to you. i would like to say this to you.I donot know you personally and i only watch an edited tv program,but from what i see the situation as a whole could turn a beautiful person hard and calised it would be hard to deal with all those problems and parolees and keep a soft heart that people would take advantage of, but always remember your family needs the softer true you as well as AJ's and no matter how hard it gets stay true to you and do not become so calised that the skin will not soften again Bless you much, J. Davis

  7. You will get through this. i believe that TRUE justice will come to those who are good at heart. A.J. doesn't belong in jail. For the DA to be reaching so far is spitting on all that our justice system is really meant to be about. We need to be more about rehabilitation...but don't get me started about our messed up legal system. As our system stands, this is STILL the DA completely and immorally placing a sentence on a man to the outer limits our law will permit. He's reaching...massively!! It's really so wrong. Don't cave, Tia.....fight fight fight..... and do it for all those who are done wrong by the system and who don't have the VOICE that you do. Make a statement for those, people and dogs, who don't who don't have the liberty of doing so....and don't stop now!! You will win...you always do! Praying for you.

  10. Someone needs to update the blog. I know you are super busy, but it would be nice to see current info. Just thought. I love the show and what you do is the most selfless thing anyone could do! Wouldn't give up my pit for anything. He is my child. I have three kids, two grown and one 13 wk old furry four legged baby.

  11. What can we do to help get AJ out of that hell hole called CA? I hate every inch of CA's people and ways. The state is beautiful the people are the drudges of humanity. I am in AZ.
