More than half of the people on the list are already locked up!! Some for a long time, so what's the use??Some of the others already have moved on from that lifestyle. Just a ploy to make the city look like they're doing something!!!BIG waste of time and money!!!!!

12-15 feet away is what they said. 1 shot at close range and 4 misses??? One witness who a reporter questioned,but the police failed to interview said Brian didn't even walk toward the cop!! But we don't see him listed as Anonymous witness #10!!Lets look at the dash cam video.Oh the camera was broken, I forgot. Or lets look at the surveillance video from across the street that showed everything , oh yea EXCEPT THE SHOOTING!!

dou4now and deniseL- If the officer ends up with mental health issues for Murdering someone, does he need help and counseling ?Maybe Brian's brother(cousin), Dr. Frank can help with the counseling?Or does he just need to be killed? Was he drunk or high that night, that's why he missed 4 times from close range? Maybe in his PAST he was bullied ,so now that he's a cop and carries a gun, he just snaps. Doesn't even wait for back up. Hmmmm????

You people are TOO MUCH!!!! Who said there was a large knife? Who said he was advancing on the police? Was there a dash cam to show that?What about 4 or 5 shots ?? If he was so close and such a threat ,why 4 or 5 shots? Why was he stopped in the first place? So we're just supposed to shut up and not ask questions?? When there hasn't been any details released at all?? C'mon people!!!!O.K. i'm done.
On Vigil for Santa Barbara Man Killed by Cop

Questions. Why can't you be walking down the street at 11:30 at night? He just got into town!!Why did he get stopped? Was the knife out of it's sheath? People always exaggerate the story or think they KNOW the details because of what they read or by what witnesses say. One person said he was carrying a Machete!!!Who said he went after the cop with the knife?? Who said that?Why do police carry and get trained to use tasers if they are not going to use them??You perfect people out there don't even know what they are talking about!! Carrying a KNIFE against someone who has BACK UP, POLICE DOG, TASER,SHOTGUNS THAT SHOOT NON- LETHAL ROUNDS, doesn't mean they deserve to die!!!! I can't speculate, but I KNOW my cousin Brian Tacadena IS DEAD!!!

Why would you try to RE integrate them ,when you know there was already a problem in the regular jr.high or high school? That's why they are at El Puente in the first place! As a continuation high school graduate myself,I understand the need for this specific kind of learning environment.Some young people need the structure and personal attention. You may have seen the single file lines and radios, but did you see them getting the personal help they needed? Did you see them walking single file to the stage for their graduations? If you knew some of the PERSONAL stories , then you would understand why they are there and why some do very well in that specific learning environment . The school is called El Puente Community School ,but the Asst.superintendent didn't want any input or opinions from the community??? People in our community are always looking for ideas on how to help At Risk youth or already involved gang members and here is a school that is trying to help and educate these young people ! If this school helped 1,10 or 100 young people change their lives and future then it's worth it to keep it going. I can give you MANY stories of young people who benefitted from El Puente and are now productive citizens in OUR COMMUNITY!!!!! If the teachers, assistants and staff at El Puente weren't there to help and encourage them, who knows where they would be or what they would be doing?? The solution is not to close the school,but to find another location that would be cheaper and able to accommodate a fewer number of young people who need this specific help. Don't try to ignore the need and close it completely.

I remember my dad saying he went to school with one of the manson family members(Bobby Beausoleil) at S.B. high school. Makes sense now if Manson lived here too.
