Bad people, once again, doing bad things, the only thing they're good at.
On Car Thieves Found at Motel 6 in Carp

To these scumbags, the babes in the woods that live in Isla Vista are easy prey. For all their ghetto wannabe talk & their know-everything attitude, falling victim to slime such as this remains nothing new.I'm glad they caught the scumbags and I hope they get made an example of.
On Isla Vista Skateboard Assault

Face it kids, Isla Vista wants to be a "special city" at the expense of everyone around them. They're special alright, but in a much different way.An enclave that causes as much dischord and problems now wants big boy pants, but compliments of somebody else's wallet. Sounds like the "town's" socialist tendencies are starting to show."Hey, it's alright to carry forward in acting like a big city, as long as somebody else foots the bill!"The reason the LAFCO people keep bringing up tax base is because it will cost money to make this pipe dream function at the least.Yes, sure, we all know, they get reamed in taxes that are then unfairly distributed to the rest of the county, uh huh, cheerio and all that.But did anyone stop to think that "unfair reaming" is a result of all the money having to be spent to babysit the children there?The reality is Isla Vista is a pain in the azz and to make a special district of it with no bump in tax revenue will cost the county more money than it is already costing.Do you leave it as is? Maybe if it WAS made into a "real" town, the stupidity exhibited by the generation selfie douchies will drop. They will have to be accountable for ALL the money and have to make responsible decisions.The party atmosphere will diminish because now laws will have to effectively be enforced if more money is to come in.The more I think about it... CITYHOOD FOR ISLA VISTA!

On Santa Maria Jury Finds Man Guilty of Deadly DUI Crash

Cartoonz: "Perhaps because those streets are squarely in the Sheriff's jurisdiction, not the CHP and most definitely not the UCSB State Police. Get a clue."
From the SBSO web page on the Isla Vista Foot Patrol: :The Isla Vista Foot Patrol station covers the area of Isla Vista surrounding UCSB. This substation utilizes bike patrol and officers from the CHP and UCSB Police to provide safety and enforcement for the community of Isla Vista.''
Sevendolphins: "Whoops, cartoonz, looks like you are the clueless one."
You're both right and wrong at the same time. Isla Vista Foot Patrol IS a joint patrolling force consisting of Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department, California Highway Patrol and University of California Police Department, that IS 100% correct. However:
1) Each agency has a flexible role with CHP mainly being the traffic enforcement, UCPD dealing mainly with campus incidents and SB Co. Sheriffs handling law enforcement on the street of Isla Vista.
2) Since Isla Vista IS an unincorporated chunk of SB County, the primary jurisdiction falls upon SB Co. Sheriffs and with said jurisdiction, the mantle of command leadership fall upon them as well.
3) SB Co. Sheriffs are the SCO (Scene Command Officers/PIO (Public Information Officers)'s when a crime concerns the town of Isla Vista.
So you're BOTH right AND wrong at the same time.
On Deltopia Not a Disaster
Posted on April 7 at 12:48 p.m.
You guys want to know why douchetopia wasn't a disaster? Come on, it's right in front of you! The reduction of out of town scum.Sure, some came, but their numbers were dwindled and the popo kept them min check.The message was simple, get out of line, we kick your azzes back in line and guess what? It worked.The wife, kids and me took a stroll on our bikes late in the afternoon, didn't see anybody out of line. But what we DID see was a bunch of potential problem children, in the detention pen, azzes on the curb, wrists in zip ties, waiting for removal from the festivities.That zany side of me took over and I just had to take some selfies, with a huge smile on my face and the busted morons in the background with sourpuss faces. Hasta la vista morons, hope your Easter morning at the Graybar Hotel was uplifting!

Awesome job by the authorities in letting the out of town douchies know that their bullcrap WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.Sure, the cops put the kabosh on the parties, but look at it as collateral damage, a little inconvenience for the locals (1 weekend of NOT partying) so the locals can TAKE THEIR TOWN BACK.The message to the out of town douchies: Don't start a riot, we won't kick your azzes.This idealistic pipe dream some have of making douchetopia something like the Coachella noisefest, unrealistic.There's a reason why it works in Coachella: THERE'S NOTHING THERE! Isla Vista is a suburb of sorts, NO, not a ghetto.If you want ghetto go to S. Central L.A. or Oakland or Hunters Point or Compton, but Isla Vista, as much of the ghetto romantics love to portray it, is NOT a ghetto.Then again, Coachella ain't a ghetto either, but... IT'S IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE and THIS is WHY it works there.Again, great job by law enforcement, you drew a line on the asphalt and held the morons from out of town in check.Make it a LOCAL event, not an invite for out of town idiots to trash YOUR community. Then maybe you CAN party every weekend of the year with no intervention.

On Standoff Suspect Arrested Again
Posted on April 3 at 12:29 p.m.
There he goes, the loonster! "A once a year celebratory occurrence"? Really man, your naive, ill-thought, babe in the woods take on REALITY is too much (or too little, depending ion perspective) to take.Face it, the party is A WEEKLY OCCURRING thing that goes from Thursday night until the wee hours of Sunday morning.Loony, stop self-representing the REAL people of Isla Vista, you're doing them a HUGE disservice with your feelgood tweakiness. Get back to the bong, it misses you.

I rode though Isla Vista this morning on my way to my office and what I saw for the most part was people going to Friday classes, more cops than normal, but not an overwhelming force and yes, yes, the idiot fencing was up.You know who we need on here to give a resident's view on matters? Mr. Sarria. I saw a post ion his facebook page this morning, here's what it said (profanities mitigated):
So this weekend is that f@#$ed up "event" called "deltopia" here in IV, which I call DOUCHETOPIA.F@#$in' great, a bunch of drunken out of town azzholes runnin' around thinking the following:1) Chicks are runnin' around topless & they ALL wanna get laid.2) There's kegs of beer on EVERY street corner for ALL!3) The drinking age in IV is 14 & over.4) The illegality of hard drugs automatically goes away.5) Cops are cool w/ you being a douchebag.6) You can park anywhere you want, even if means blocking a driveway.Well, last year this douchefest resulted in a riot & the out of town azzholes wrecked the town.This year they're in for a surprise, the cops are out in force, parking restrictions are in place & THEY AIN'T GONNA TAKE YOUR S@#T!As an IV resident of 28 years, I say the following: F@#k douchetopia, f@#k the out of town scumbums & fuck UCSB for indirectly supporting this s@#itfest. May the cops crack down & bring ALL the azzholes DOWN.Parties are cool, but this ain't a party, it's a generation selfie yolo douchefest & it needs to die.
So here's a long time resident & he's not in favor of it. He goes to parties & enjoys the area better than any of us here on this board, but he's got that to say. Think about it.
