The one who should sue is Bill Brown, 'cause his re-election just went bye-bye. Deservedly so, for the fish always stinks from the head...
I, for one, want my money back if this tom-foolery is what we pay salaries for.
On Undersheriff Jim Peterson Retired Amid 'Sexting' Scandal
Posted on September 14 at 11:14 p.m.
The leading industry in California: government. The leading arm of government in terms of employment: courts, jails, prisons. Follow the money. Clowns like Frank Ochoa get elected with the conspiratorial support of clowns like Joyce Dudley and her band of merry jugglers...who win bonuses and vacations for over-charging and unethically prosecuting everything that comes their way--unless the accused happens to be a local celebrity (can you say Paula Lopez?) or a government crony (can you say Iya Falcone?)--and then making plea bargains to pump up their conviction rates...Which does what?Fills the jails and prisons, which is surely appreciated by the subset of morons eager to work custody jobs so that they can finally feel higher on the food chain of life...and get their benefits paid for...EVER. And who do you think they support at election time? All of the aforementioned who do an amazing job of creating the "product" (incarceration) that keeps them working.Follow the money...

Bill Brown is the sheriff. It falls in his lap. Time for him to go.

Now let's see the prosecution of those two Neanderthal custody deputies and an investigation into Beutel and Tudor...all of whom deserve exactly the sentence meted out in this case.
On Police Embezzler Sentenced to 10 Years
Posted on September 4 at 10:38 p.m.
Quick: publish the decedent's prior criminal history, for that my help quell the outrage over the trigger-happy shooting of Tacadena. Lucky for the shooting cop that his target didn't have a clean arrest record, because that might mean that the cop would face some sort of meaningful review. As it is, the cop will undoubtedly get a series of backslaps back at the station. Among the dangerous street gangs in SB: law enforcement.
On Police Shooting Suspect Had Extensive Criminal History
Posted on September 2 at 9:34 p.m.
Perfect. Another "officer involved shooting" that will be swept aside by Joyce Dudley, among whose constituents are the police union.Here's a question: aren't SBPD trained in anything other than trigger-pulling? How about negotiations with people who are clearly out of their gourd/under the influence? How about backing up when confronted with a knife-wielder for a few moments while police backup is summoned? How about simply physically disarming the drunk-druggie-nutjob? Unless the drunk-druggie-nutjob is a U.S. Navy Seal with a knife, anyone of reasonable athletic ability serving on the SBPD should have been trained in some basic hand-to-hand sufficient to have disarmed this guy.Can't wait to see what the shooting distance was. Less than six feet? If not, what was the real threat (remember, each street cop is wearing a kevlar vest, impervious to fatal knife wounds)? If so, why not just take a step forward and take the knife away? If a cop can't do that, he belongs behind a desk, not out on the streets.Sigh. Another episode of county law enforcement protocols proving once again that this among the most dangerous places in the state.
On Police Officer Fatally Shoots Man With Knife
Posted on August 28 at 10:52 p.m.
Where are the mug shots of Kirsch and Johnson?Wait, let me guess: it's against "policy" and the compliant SB press community buys that crap.Bottom line: this is the puss bursting out of the hot pimple of ubiquitous Santa Barbara KORRUPTION.Highest per capita level of "officer involved" shootings of any county in the state.Highest per capita county jail inmate fatalities by "natural causes" in the state.Aaron Tudor...Kasie Beutel...These two clowns, Johnson and Kirsch (who will never be seen in handcuffs, EVER)...The list will only grow until the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor (hah!) actually DO SOMETHING about this toxic police state among the swaying palms...
On Jail Guards Gone Rogue?
Posted on August 17 at 11:42 p.m.
There are a number of gangs in SB...and one of them is the SBSD Custody Staff.Bill Brown is toast. Just lost his job. Compare the number of inmate deaths per capita in SBCO Jail to any other jurisdiction in the tri-counties. You'll be shocked. "Natural causes" is always the ruling. Sure...when someone stops breathing, it's "natural" that they die. SBCOJ is a draconian dungeon run by psychopathic bullies and passive-aggressive office staff. The Grand Jury has already revealed the incredible state of affairs at the SBCO Coroner's office (managed by the Sheriff, by the way), so no wonder all inmate deaths are "natural".Joyce Dudley will never prosecute these turds, just as she doesn't prosecute Iya Falcone, Paula Lopez, Koa Misi, or anyone connected to celebrity, City Hall, or the courts.It's just a Corrupt Community, and we all know it. Dudley and judges like Ochoa are in lock-step for one purpose only: re-election.These custody clowns will be quietly fired, charges will be dropped, it will all drop off the media radar promptly, and Cam Sanchez will keep looking for a job so that he can get out of town before the hammer drops on him.
On Sheriff's Deputies Charged with Assault
Posted on August 4 at 10:11 p.m.
This is a JOKE, right? Because Lopez sits on a parade float once/year and reads off a teleprompter (poorly), she's excused from dealing with the local judicial system that torments the rest of those who make the mistake of walking down State Street with a couple of drinks under their belt? This is CORRUPTION at it's most blatant. And to ignore the complicity of Dudley and hubby Frank in all of this--can you imagine what the late-night phone calls must be like?--only feeds the ravenous beast of the SB Police State. Oh, wait---Lopez admits to having a "medical problem". I wonder if it's the same "medical problem" that plagues a large percentage of those arrested each and every day on our streets, and who are JAILED and PROSECUTED without consideration of their "medical problem." In SB, Lady Justice is indeed blind...blind to the realities of CORRUPTION. Where is the Grand Jury when we need them?
On Deputies Respond to Paula Lopez's Home Four Times in Five Months
Posted on July 11 at 9:03 p.m.
You boys dance around the crux of the issue: CORRUPTION in this county is RAMPANT. Political posturing, trumped-up press conferences, and air-time. That's all it's about. Where's my next job? What office can I possibly win? Oh, wait, it's getting to uncomfy here in SB, so I'll start applying for gigs out of the area (Cam Sanchez).If you want to have any impact upon the idiocy around us, stop arguing with each other (half of you clearly have waayy too much time on your hands) and express yourselves to the Regional Director of the FBI. They are the only ones with a hope of coming into SBCO and cleaning this dismal mess up...just as the feds came into California to do something about prison overcrowding (a direct result of local DA's like Dudley overcharging to generate guilty plea/convictions because we're "against crime" for purely political purposes). Like it or not, we live in a county that is truly a police state and not even the County Grand Jury has the clout to change things.
