I think this is a great idea. Drill, process, infrastructure, TAX, etc...Gee some actual industry that adds to GDP rather than just preying upon one another like real estate/legal/ tourism world we live in. Noted also the jobs would not be crappy low paying/temporary as many now are. Also the tar/gas seepage issue really does suck. Why not use that oil and gas in stead of just letting it float into UCSB's MPA? (humor...it is a state MPA, but if I say it is UCSB's it seems to carry more weight) I think this is an opportunity both economically and ecologically for the area if that is possible.

Geeze, why do we need this master plan... just leave them alone already, how is that for a plan. Hopefully this doesn't turn into Goleta Beach 2.0.

Trolls? Oh come on now. You can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. iamsomeguy nailed it too. These two both have jobs, or volunteer positions that are way within the public eye and they both knew it. The poor decisions they have made will adversely affect lives other than their own. If I were this gal's boyfriend I would be thinking twice about her trustworthiness vs her career aspirations. Bad moves. I think Brown did the right thing and handled it. Maybe Sanchez should take note.

Thank you Carpbythesea. I read a lot of crappy comments and finally almost at the end, someone said what I was waiting to hear. VOLUNTEER! how do you get fired or promoted as a VOLUNTEER? Gee is she going to sue for 10 times her salary of NOTHING? She let herself stay in this position in hopes that it would bear fruit. Hopefully a jury review her moral turpitude. I would like to add that this cop obviously has the social graces of a high school football player. How could he be so DUMB as to not think he was setting himself up for the fall? He was too bitchen to completely ignore all of the sexual harassment seminars given to all county employees? Saw the word narcissist used in further up post. Have to agree. Seems to be a lot of these stories about cops run a muck are the same. Maybe they know how to control a situation with suspect but many it seems have no clue how to carry on normal relationships with the opposite sex other than to try to used their badge to get some.

dou4now nailed it. ICE did a good job cleaning house locally. We had the G-13's out in Goleta. To say any of these gangs don't have affiliations with the Mexican Mafia would be naive. Because either you listen up as a smaller gang, or you get killed. I applaud the efforts of LE got get on it and stay on it. This is all the more reason to get the gang injunction passed if for only no other reason than to get these dream team members (30) more visibility amongst the COPS and even locals will probably see their pictures and start calling in on them. For a gang to function, you need local operatives. Not some guys driving thru town with a blue light special on meth. A gang injunction would make these local operatives very well known to LE. I am not normally a huge fan of the COPS but in this case, I think it is outstanding work. GOOD JOB!

I doubt it. Oswald was a tool not some cunning hit man. In the interviews with the press Oswald is flapping his gums off about his civil rights etc.. if he was some trained operative or had even done it, I think he would have kept his yap shut. Watching the Zapruder film, Oswald would have been off to the left of where camera is positioned. Kennedy's head moves towards the left during the fatal shot. Also some of the higher definition versions show some other things(I won't go into graphic detail) moving in a direction that in no way could have been from Oswalds location.

Great article. One look at the Zapruder film (readily available on Youtube) will pretty much convince people that all of this is plausible. Most telling I would say is the way Kennedy clutches his throat after the first shot that struck him that obviously came from behind him, then the second fatal shot to his head which came from a totally different angle, probably below or forward of the camera somewhere. Someones head is not pushed toward a direction the bullet comes from as it strikes. It is very rough to watch I am sure you all know. I often wonder if the time lag for that film being released/broadcast was to let some of the heat die down for fear of public backlash to the ridiculous findings of the Warren commission.

Serious D bags. I hope they got put on the dream team 30. Probably wussies too picking on easy prey. Good job again Coppers!!

Review that is ridiculous. How shortsighted. Over time your hallowed real estate prices may be better because there won't be gang members. Seems it is more important to think of the me and here and now, instead of our kids futures. Part of the problem with SB: All I care about is my bitchen real estate price..." Lame. Think bigger picture people. And if you think east and west side gangs are bad, wait till some of their bigger brothers start getting involved.
Finally, in closing, I would like to say that the last paragraph of this article pretty much says it all.

Agree with foo fighter. Congrats Indy. That whole netnanny thing going on over at EDHAT is ridiculous. A line from a movie with jack nicholson comes to mind: YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH! Fact is sometimes the deleted comments are the best ones. You have to be a serious Jacka$$ to get comments deleted on the INDY which is why I totally agree with this award. Kudos to many of the commenters too, whether I agree or disagree with you for the keeping it in between the lines. Once someone hijacks a thread about Obama, or Maryjane, things really go downhill. Also the personal attacks are pretty lame. This publication is much appreciated for local stories on topic and a forum for discussion.
