THROW THE BUM OUT.Isn't he supposed to be RUNNING things? If so, how does he escape responsibility for his former Under Sheriff--who is tasked with running the jail, widely known as THE WORST COUNTY JAIL IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA--who, rather than doing his job was out diddling female officers?I'll avoid my usual rant about the incredible corruption that runs through County and City law enforcement (Bill Brown and Cam Sanchez would both rather be somewhere else...if only they could get hired), the DA's office (a win-at-any-cost ethical joke), and the desk of The "Honorable" Frank Ochoa, who runs his courtroom like a Joyce Dudley slumber party...which may explain his perpetual somnolence on the bench and his egregious record of judicial error on appeal.Bottom line: it's really expensive to tolerate these fools, and it's scandalous to allow Brown/Sanchez/Dudley/Ochoa to quietly provide Iya Falcone, Paula Lopez, Kasi Beutel, Aaron Tudor, etc., etc., with Get Out of Jail cards.Election Day can't come soon enough.
On Sheriff Bill Brown Announces Reelection Bid

What a load of specious, self-serving, politically-orchestrated nonsense. Durling has no business printing anything about law enforcement; he likes movies and has saved the film festival. Endless kudos for that.But to interview this criminal and give her a public forum for her self-serving "I'm just a mom who loves my job and when I'm not working all I really care about is doing even more wonderful things" is specious public relations management that borders on the laughable.Anyone who knows anything--and yes Locke, I do in fact KNOW from profoundly personal experience that I will not detail here--about the unfettered corruption in this city is probably pulling their heads out of the toilet bowl where they've puked up dinner after reading this treacle posted by Durling who, we must remember, spends half of his life in the dark in a world of complete fiction. The FACT of the matter is that Cam Sanchez would turn in his badge if he could get a job anywhere else (he tried and failed, remember?), Joyce Dudley has never walked past a camera or microphone she didn't lather over, her minions in the DA's office commit egregious Code of Ethics violations in the service of their win-loss records (justice be damned), and Frank Ochoa is a Magoo-buffoon who serves only at the whim of Dudley's office (who, of course, cut Paula Lopez plenty of slack just to keep Frank on a short leash).These are all dangerous people--we live in a small town where the traffic cops feel the need to carry assault rifles--and are to be feared, avoided, and shunned.
On The S.B. Questionnaire: Kasi Beutel

Keep a couple of things in mind, folks:1. The only evidence is the testimony of a complaining witness...who clearly has her own agenda. She's now in the country legally and she's ready to move on. Why do you think these Thai ladies consort with fat old American men? Her motives in all of this remain to be discerned.2. Paula Waldman has made her career prosecuting men accused of crimes against females. Evidence does not matter to her; ethics do not matter to her. She's a guilty as half the people she prosecutes...but as long as she wins (and questions like "is it possible this is true?" are but one of her under-handed tactics. Lawler seems to have handled her well. Waldman doesn't know what actually happened, but she will always speak as though she does.3. Corruption in the SB Superior Courts is common. All prosecutions are suspect and need to be carefully vetted before you posting clowns play judge and jury.

Simply another glaring example of this county's bureaucratic, law enforcement, and judicial corruption and CYA culture.Sad and dangerous environment here in "Paradise".

Prayers are in order for Ms. Dies.... and SHAME is in order for Ms. Capps who will now do all she can to avoid ANY association with this tragedy or the sad fellow behind the wheel.
Sickening, truly sickening.
On DUI Hit-and-Run Suspect Raymond Morua Has Criminal Record

Lois Capps--breaker of her own promise to never run for her late husband's office once she took the seat merely to serve out his elected term--owns this guy. Failure to run background checks is owned by the one with the responsibility; as the titular head of her own office, maybe she should stop all the hand-waving at every media opportunity and actually manage her overpaid staff. This is purely the product of local politics doing its usual "thing"...keeping those in power IN power.
Re the alcohol issues: what flagrant hypocrisy. We live in a community where DUI enforcement is conducted by the likes of Kasi Beutel and Aaron Tudor under color of authority granted them by Cam Sanchez...all of whom would dearly love to get out of SBPD if only another agency would hire them (but none will). We live in a community where Joyce Dudley pontificates about drug and alcohol enforcement while County Supervisors permit alcohol to be sold in every gas station on every corner. Who do you think buys beer at gas stations? People who drink in their vehicles. Duh.
On Lois Capps Representative Arrested for DUI Hit-and-Run

Lois Capps--the same woman who, when stepping in to fill her late husband's Congressional seat for the balance of his term, promised the voters that she had no intention of ever running for the office beyond her husband's elected tenure, continues to occupy the office at the behest of the Democratic Machine simply because she has neither ever had nor ever voiced an independent thought remotely contrary to the "party line"--is perfectly qualified to be a greeter at WalMart...and little else.This sad episode--a complete failure of management that goes right to the top of her office--is a clear indication of her unmatched abilities to ride in parades and show up at barbecues to mollify constituents who depend upon her political largesse.Tar and feathers, I say.

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.

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...
