On the one hand, SB is screaming for a gang injunction...The other hand is extended to non gang members to act like gang members.

It is unfair to History to not review ALL aspects of WHY we, myself included, even as a Chumash person, find ourselves where we do.America attempted to assimilate Native peoples for over 500 years, using the most horrific means possible. Then, a think-tank came-up with the idea of "Gaming" on reservations [reservations being the equivalent of concentration camps in Amer.] A "loophole" was discovered in the law that would allow this [actually, one was invented to facilitate this] & casino`s were born. What better way to assimilate Natives than to heap $$ on them?..Make them consumers like the rest of Amer.,which worked.Please keep in mind that these legal "techniques" are purely Western American in origin, design & purpose. They divide the Native people into "Haves" & Have nots" [I`m a have-not], they create a Governmental resource bank [greased palms] derive a "Maintained historical hatred" towards Natives in America receiving "Free $" [Remember your school teachings? ie: Savages, Scalping, Kill the Indian-Save the man campaign, Manifest Destiny, The only good Indian is a dead Indian, etc...My personal feelings are thus: I want nothing to do with the casino or it`s revenue..It`s all gov. blood money, Gov. being the operative abbreviation.And when it comes to money in America, money always wins, which I fear is the case here.And here`s a side-note for those who say:"I had nothing to do with the wars that took Native lands"...If your great Grand-pa`s house were robbed & his heirloom gold watch were stolen, then you saw me wearing it 100 years later, you would demand it back. If I said, "I didn't steal it, I bought it at a pawn-shop ,"legally" I doubt that would matter..I would be in possession of your stolen property...So it`s true, today`s people didn't steal the land from Natives, they simply purchased stolen property, which is against the law today, as it was back then.

Yes, I said it & will say it again...Ken V. is a blatant coward. It requires a coward & a snitch to attempt to gain support for his racist comment of "Me noble savage". As I originally stated, his argument was just fine up to that point. You only serve to prove my opinion of you by running to this comment section [aka Mommy] to tell everyone "Look what he said"....Boo-Hoo.

I work in the tourism industry here in SB..I know all the tour related businessess & their owners...So, when I say tourism is not booming,believe it.This article is in place for tourist eyes, to bolster their confidence in vacationing here. If the actual crime stats were posted,they would not come.So instead of fixing our issues & making this a tour-friendly town, tourists are lied to [as are we] & lives & safety are put at risk for a buck. The city of Santa Barbara is lying to us all.

A woman... Beautiful on the inside..making her even more beautiful on the out.<> i am the sun, & she is the moon..two celestial bodies sharing the same expanse of sky...each turning on different paths, yet complimentary to the other--for without one, the other would not exist. I could never cause her to deviate from the course given her by the highest power...but only ask of her this--that as long as the heavens remain our playground,may she always make the wolves howl for my pleasure--& i will never let the flowers die for hers... So when night is done falling, & sunrise is yet to be.. In that instant, our lips dare to brush, lest our passion consume us both---only eternity would fault her...for kissing the sun<><><>spirit~horse
