Sheriff Bill Brown, on horseback and preparing to take part in the Fiesta Parade, personally arrested a homeless man accused of stabbing another transient at around 12:10 p.m. Friday in Pershing Park.

According to police spokesperson Lt. Paul McCaffrey, Brown and a few of his mounted deputies were lining up in the parade staging area when they noticed an altercation at the south end of the park. They rode up to find two men engaged in a fight. The suspect, 36-year-old Isaiah Jones, had reportedly stabbed the 50-year-old victim in the gut and was taken into custody. He was transported to County Jail and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

The victim was transported to Cottage Hospital — his wound wasn’t considered life-threatening — but he refused treatment and left, McCaffrey said.

All that's missing is video of Sheriff Wide Load saying "yippee kay yay, mother f**ker!

(And for a super duper over the top photo op, they could've worked a panga with a giant Mexican flag and a pile of dirt weed into the background - now THAT would've been WINNING!!!)

Now that's a Sheriff. I would have liked to watch that go down.

Oh please, do you really think such a glutton for self congratulation actually let this "heroic" feat go unrecorded? Really? I don't!

Oh yes, spirityanker is giving us a play by play on how it all works. With spirityankers years of whining and tin foil hat theories one would think medication would have worked by now. Oh well, time will tell I guess.

But, I will have to take a line for my next press release, "Sheriff Wide Load saying, 'yippee kay yay, mother f**ker!'" Now that's some real journalistic talent!!!

Oh boy, here we go with the "spirityanker", "tugmuscle", "sirwanksalot" ad nauseam, word play... look, you disgusting little prostitute, for $160,000 a year, you REALLY do need to come with a better defense of the Sheriff. (Not that he deserves it, but that the people of SB county deserve FAR more for their money!)

As for "journalistic talent", you wouldn't know that if walked up and slapped you across the face, you pathetic hack!

(And if anyone wonders just what in the world could explain the sort of psychotic diatribes posted by 'Priceless', here's an excerpt from 'The 25 Rules of Disinformation': #18 Emotionalize, Antagonize and Goad Opponents. If you can't do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents..." I won't bother to quote the rest of rule 18 'cause I think it's pretty obvious what the media whore is trying to do here.)

Yeah, right... zero evidence that our "heroic" Sheriff actually DID anything but pose for a couple pictures. (Or that a "stabbing" or any other crime was actually committed, so... yeah, I guess that's "how you rope 'em and dope 'em"!)

They moved the grain silos off the main street in 2007 in Moscow, Idaho, 94% white folks, where he was police chief before moving to.Lompoc.

Before Brown moved to Lompoc, the police cars were all white and the police themselves. if not "officer friendly" were certainly a lot more reasonable than the belligerent thugs they've become over the past ten years - I can't remember Brown's exact rational for going with the now standard two tone, but it certainly does seem to have set the tone for the LPD's philosophy - we now have an armored car and a 15 or 20 man SWAT team. Can ANYONE even conceive of a need for such things in a one horse town like Lompoc? I can't.

Grain silos?

This link is for grain elevators, there's also a website about a grain silo turned into a theater, sounds cool. I thought of it because I associated horses and cowboys with agriculture/farming, not Fiesta, and had seen this a while ago.

"That's pretty cool!"

And you actually went to UCSB? And this is ALL you've got to say? Really?

(I'm hoping that he was a 1 semester "wonder", but I'm actually scared to death that this is the "thinking" of a "graduate" - God help us!)
