There goes JL with that stupid SB vs NYC analogy again. I checked into ALL the stats surrounding his argument and it only strengthened my assumption of his ignorance of law enforcement training, policies and practices in the two agencies.
First of all, NYC officers get shot and killed on the job on a pretty often basis by LE stats. How many SB officers get killed a year? WHY?? That's because CA trainings and standards are much higher. CA law enforcement are trained under POST standards that teach them, more than any other state, how to stay alive. Most LE that die on duty do so in auto accidents.
If you want to question why this officer shot and killed (Justifiable Homicide) this drugged up suicide by cop felon, or question all of the recent shootings, then question by what standards they are trained. You want to call cops killers then prosecute the law makers voting for the laws that establish their training, policies and the laws protecting them.
All other anonymous attacks have no bearing.
On Fatal Police Shooting Deemed 'Justifiable Homicide'

So where are all the comments by the likes of John Locke about the out of control unrestrained police department??? Well???
The comment section goes quiet when and untrained civilian, THAT WAS ACTUALLY AT THE SCENE, say about the officers actions, “the police behaved with restraint” and that they “couldn’t see what was awaiting them.” I guess that doesn't leave room for the cop hating vitriol we're all used to.
Then again, maybe there would not have been a shooting if these officers were aware of the per capita police shooting numbers in New York.
On Next-Door Neighbor Recounts Officer-Involved Shooting

Great head line Indy staff. Makes it sound like this guy was shot just because he was on the wrong side of the road.
One of the most deadly weapons one can use to kill a cop is a car. Maybe we should wait for a completed investigation.

JL... It's always been obvious you know nothing about LE training or policies in your way off base comments. One cannot just compare per capita stats to make such an ignorant assumption.
There is no one reason for any group of shootings by the various agencies in SBC. A few things we do know is violent crime is rising, there's less intervention available for those with violent mental health issues, the prisons are unloading on our streets and there are simply more of the 'you ain't taking me alive' type criminals out there.
I'm just thankful we have those men and women doing the job. Who else is going to take on the bad guys face to face?

It doesn't matter what oil/natural gas project it is. The EDC (and it's sub groups) own at least two of our supervisors, while a third trades votes.
Time to make a difference where we can. Get rid of Janet Wolf in the upcoming election.

So who bought Salud's vote, or was it a trade for a vote on SME?
Another thing, if Salud does run for other office, what other Supervisor is going to hold the index cards telling Janet Wolff how to vote on an agenda item?
On Chumash Call out Carbajal

A few things are pretty clear...
-Only a jury's opinion will matter in the end.
-They're both adults and responsible for their own behavior, but Peterson was a very powerful and influential person conducting himself in a manner with complete disregard for the position of leadership he held.
-The only way Peterson could have sent that many texts was to have done so at work.
-If it comes out that Jim Peterson has any sort of history of similar acts then Sheriff Brown is completely responsible for his Undersheriff's behavior and showed a lack of leadership in promoting him.
-Sgt Sandra Brown could have went straight to the media with a press conference playing gotcha politics, but she did the right thing within policy and common decency. Peterson was investigated BEFORE it was brought to light.
-This is a huge stain on the sheriff's department reputation.
This certainly effects my decision on election day.
On Undersheriff Jim Peterson Retired Amid 'Sexting' Scandal
Posted on November 26 at 5:55 p.m.
Anybody notice that Sheriff Bill Brown was told of this before August and Peterson didn't resign until October 16th? During that period Peterson remained on the job instead of being placed on admin leave. How many deputies did he stand in judgement of during that time? Not to mention all that time he was playing the role of Undersheriff Jim "Anthony Wiener" Peterson.
What's worse is that Bill Brown is well known to be the absent Sheriff. Always politicking around the state instead of taking care of his own house. Guess who's been in charge during all that time?
Goes to show the Sheriff's Department is more of a political peyton place than a law enforcement agency.

FYI: I can't stand that fat bag of BS Limbaugh. He stole 'environazi' from me.
I really don't care how much SME makes. I care about getting a safe revenue generating project off the ground. The softball project that this is clearly shows who pulls the strings with those 3 on the BOS. It's not the labor unions, it's the activists that have reputations to protect. EDC, GOO, ect have all said not another oil project in SB County, and that's what they've gotten.
Remember the little golf resort project in Lompoc a few years ago? That was another example of them pulling their BOS slave's short hairs, and the project had NO impact on them. It was just them flexing their paid for votes.
Wake up people.
On Enviros Successfully Challenge Oil Drilling Project
Posted on November 14 at 7:49 p.m.
@JA... You're right. We all share the same atmosphere, so making one project meet insane numbers is ridiculous. Just so you know... SBC does not have it's own atmosphere. We share it with the whole world.
I would support raising property taxes 200% on the enviros expensive homes in SB and Montecito, and forego the oil projects, to pay for underfunded county services. You in with me?
