SB_Guy - I sure hope you're 15 and still in high school for your writing ability is that of an illiterate monkey.
If you're not 15 and still in school I suggest you go to school and learn how to write. No one will ever take you seriously if you write like an ignorant child.
On Cops Find Lots of Pot on Pedregosa

83 pounds of what? With a FMV of approx $3000 a pound, this article and the SBPD's PR reeks of inaccuracy and hyperbole.
But since its a "drug" and the more they claim the more grant money they receive, the SBPD and the rest of LE continue to lie and destroy the lives of many in their idiotic support of the drug war.
i'd love to know why Brown doesnt ignore the Federal drug laws while he is fine ignoring the Fed immigration laws? Could it be the millions upon millions his dept receives to fight the drug war? Could it be the millions his dept gets to keep from seized assets as a result of a simple arrest? No... couldnt be could it?.

dou4now - I hope that what you write is indeed true. The local LE agencies determining enforcement is absurd and flies in the face of their sole and sworn duty.
Let's get the funding out of their hands and see how fast they do their duty.
On Counties Ending Immigration Holds
Posted on July 10 at 8:50 a.m.
Pure unadulterated bull crap. Fire, then arrest and put on trial all these Law Enforcement officials for failure to follow the law. Their only duty by the way is to follow the law. Their sworn duty. That's it, that's all. Its all they're supposed to do. Follow the law.
How about we enforce the law as written. This whole selective enforcement is bull and its created a monster. The children of immigrants dont respect the law because they were taught from an early age that they can pick and choose which ones to follow - without repercussion.
The sheriffs dont take this stance with drug laws do they? No, its their bread and butter. But since there are no billion dollar grants for immigrant removal... they look the other way.
We've been had. The immigrants have lied, cheated and stolen their way into and onto our soil and now they've won. What laws? We dont need to follow no stinking laws!

Ken, Talk about pathetic!
Looking at your resume it seems that you peaked back in your UCSB days and have spent the last 10+ years clinging to your youth... That's sad. Not to mention you're posting on every single thread about this issue and taking the position that you represent the adults of IV. Do you live out there still? Isnt it time to grow up dude get a real job, make some real money and move out of your crappy apartment? (or is it a camper?)
At what point do you stop trying to be a 20 year old Ken? Because you're obviously not making any money selling your crappy prints and DVD's. Does your Mommy and Daddy still pay for your life Ken?
There is nothing more pathetic than a middle aged man clinging to his teen aged lifestyle. Nothing.
On The Death of Isla Vista?
Posted on April 9 at 2:56 p.m.
While you Guachos alumni are getting slobbery and sentimental with your stories of how great it was... The students of today have nailed it. Read, re-read emkman's post. Its spot on.
The entire issue is related to the authoritative crack down on all things fun.
I didnt go to UCSB but the very same thing happened in Chico, Eugene and Ann Arbor around the same time and the very same results occurred.
The points about the lack of keg parties and bands should not be ignored. The absurdity of laws that were written as knee jerk reaction to outlying events and miss guided moral objectives were designed to protect people from themselves and empower police. Yet they didnt quell anything! It just pushed it into smaller and smaller spaces and forced the students into the literal corner.
Like the war on drugs, the war on college partying had no impact on partying. In fact, it made it worse. Creating legends and lore.
The myopia of our leaders cannot be underestimated here. The knee jerk reactions of law makers and the authorities has proven to cause more problems then they ever solve.
Blaming the students here is akin to blaming sharks for attacking surfers. Sharks eat things, college students party. Stop trying to force human behaviors that are contrary to natural behaviors. It does not and will not ever quell the drive or desire and will only build animosity and create a barrier between people.
The opportunity is here to create a safe, fun event that takes advantage of what an incredible place IV is... Make it a sanctioned event and you'll solve all the problems while making a lot of money in the process.

Actually Ken, I just looked you up for giggles... And surprisingly, you're a 40 something local crappy artist... Man does your work suck, your music sucks and your movies suck (at least the trailers do) .
No wonder you have so much time on your hands... you're an unemployed bum who masquerades as an artist! Holy crap. I really wish you were decent but none of your works is good... its all crap. Which would explain a lot about why you live in IV and post on the Independent all day every day...
What kind of a fool calls themselves an artist and then sells copies and prints of other people work on Etsy?
On Deltopia Party Devolves Into Isla Vista Riot
Posted on April 7 at 5:08 p.m.
Oh Ken, por old Ken. You're simply not funny. I dont know if your wife told you were or if you're just trying to hard... but none of your attempts at humor, sarcasm, belittlement or otherwise work... none. In fact, they come across as weak and fearful and the musings of a sad old man... which is more akin to your personality isnt it? A weak, fearful, sad old man...at least that aligns more with your hourly posts where you chime in as the expert in all and everything..
Keep trying though. You make my job a lot easier! And try to lose the envy. Its sad that a man at your stage is so envious of others who have more...

Thanks Beachfan, I can understand this but if you're really concerned about the tax waste, you should focus on the waste that is the SBSO and their millions of dollars worth of tactical weaponry. After all , to a man with a hammer everything is a nail... and the the mentally challenged SBSO, anytime they can roll out their bearcat and roll up the OT, they do...
With the sheer amount of wasted tax dollars in this town, focusing on these kids and the few thousand of costs to clean up (compared to the hundreds of thousands they spend) is not really genuine. Its not a bad things mind you, but its not really the reason people are upset. They're upset because the party is not to the liking of the old, stodgie conservative a-holes who make up SB these days...
I'd rather the SBSO deported all the illegals who cost us hundreds of millions a year... now that would be a savings!

Nice song Bill, I like that song... But its your not you're... Is that sarcasm I read? Good try Bill, good try, but one needs to be a very good writer in order to convey sarcasm and good writers, write well...
I love how none of the peanut gallery can answer simple questions, instead you all seem to have an amazing clairvoyance and are able to extrapolate so much about me! All from only a few dozen posts... Simply outstanding that you folks are so gifted and yet somehow against all odds are also tremendously unsuccessful, Go figure?
Ken, maybe you and Boycott Boy can get together and form a commune? You both know it all and yet are both unemployed douches who live in campers...
OOOOOOO - are you jealous of Chris? Sounds like it... you know you have no right to tell others how to live ? Just making sure you understand that basic idea... Trying to censor someone for being very good at publicity is pretty much anti-American... are you anti-America?
Lawdy, I am a bitch as are you and so is Ken's wife... But what is amazing, truly amazing is that you can read so much into my posts. You must also be hugely successful and very rich with that natural ability to glean such valuable insights from a tiny amount of data... The world must be easy to someone like you!
Ken, still waiting for you to answer how these kids partying effects you? How they fun takes away from your right to peace and happiness and of course, safety in your home... Unless you are for preemptive law enforcement? If so, you're also an Anti-American.
Maybe you can show us all how smart you are by articulating the reasons behind your points instead of focusing on me? Is that possible? Or is it to hard to explain your reasoning?
