Thanks for the article, and the link to their site which was witty and very funny. We'll be giving them a try here this week!

On Up Close with … Parry Gripp

My Grandmother got this very call. Thankfully, she called me before wiring the money. The scammer was pretending to be my brother. It was so enraging to me that someone would take advantage of an elderly person like that. It was a very traumatic experience for her. It makes me so sad to know there are such horrible people with no conscience walking among the rest of us. They deserve worse than hell for eternity, but hell will do.
On Beware Scammers Targeting Grandparents

Geez, the torch carrying mob has spoken! First, saying this kid is possibly illegal because of his name is RIDICULOUS! The Castillo family has been in Santa Barbara for generations, so quit hating on every person with a spanish surname already. Over 50% of SB's population is Hispanic, and MOST of them are law abiding, decent citizens.
Second, though I agree something doesn't add up here if he saw the victim before he hit him, he didn't drive off and hide like many often do in these accidents. He cooperated with police, and THEY will determine if he should be charged. At 23, that was a very responsible thing to do, especially if he was at fault.
Third, while he didn't produce a license at the scene, it doesn't necessarily mean he didn't have a license to drive. He may have lost his wallet, had it stolen, left it at home, who knows? Though I'd nag him about it, our son would drive off without his wallet at that age regularly. Since this young man wasn't cited at the scene, there's a good chance he just didn't have it on his person at the time of the accident.
And Fourth, the man could have stumbled backward, or slowed down suddenly, which means the driver may not have had time to react. I nearly ran over a man some years ago who suddenly jumped out of the bushes on the FREEWAY at night, ran in front of my car and stopped in the middle of my lane. I barely missed him, and nearly rolled my car avoiding him. He stuck his thumbs in his ears, wiggled his fingers in the air and poked his tongue out at me as I passed him. Crazy!
Granted that's not what apparently happened in this case, some posters on here sure have jumped to a lot of conclusions. What if YOU were the one that accidentally ran over this man and killed him? YOU reached down to adjust the radio, or pick up a piece of paper with directions to where you're meeting for dinner, or grab your Big Gulp for a swig of soda? Or a pedestrian suddenly stumbles or slows when you assume they won't... As someone who grew up in SB and love this city, it's just so embarrassing what some of you write on here for all the world to see. You represent yourselves only, not the heart and spirit of our multicultural town.
On Homeless Man Killed in Traffic Accident

It's coming, not to be a damp rag or anything. But seriously, we've had lots of big quakes around the globe recently, and it would be foolish to think we're not in line for one. From what I understand, we're about 30 years PAST due. Get some extra water and canned food handy, as well as batteries and first aid stuff. Update your earthquake kit. We had one around Y2K, but the water all leaked out, and the rats got our dry goods. I'm saying this for myself as well as others: get it together now.

Indy, I need a pt job, and you guys DEFINITELY need a proof-reader. I'll work the first 3 weeks for free to prove myself. The article was great, but the number of text and grammatical errors were seriously embarrassing. This is a credible, professional site and news source. You're actually one of the only ones left in Santa Barbara at this time. Let's raise that bar a little. I can definitely help! Consider my application served...
With great appreciation and respect...

Guilty until proven innocent? C'mon Indy, do we know anything about their side or explanation of what happened? I've read elsewhere the whole thing was a mistake/misunderstanding. Please don't feed the lynch mob. AZ2SB is always hungry, and if you feed him and the others, they'll never leave your yard. Very messy, those rascals! :)

LOL Gordo, you hit the nail on the head there.That's like standing on a fault line to see how much the ground will move during an earthquake. Natural selection indeed.

Sorry to Mr. Fina, and the other commenters, but you know, there are ALWAYS two sides to a story. ALWAYS! Mr. Fina's story reflects his own perception of what happened. I'm absolutely certain there are other perspectives that do not share his exact experience. We have the BEST, most highly trained military in the world. These are our children, brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers. They know what they're doing, and their job is NOT to suppress our people, it is to protect our country! They are here do defend our freedom. If you have a problem with what they're doing, you protest to your Congress, your President, your higher-ups. And I greatly resent anyone who says otherwise. Mr. Fina, you were in the wrong place at the wrong time, even if I agree with your position, which I do. And you chose to be there, in front of a military base. If you recall, recently a military base was the scene of a tragic slaughter of our brave men and women in uniform. Things are different now, whether you're 20 or 80. If you don't appreciate the sacrifice our soldiers are making to make it possible for you to stand in the sunshine and hold a picket sign, then move to Canada! You've no right to criticize them for protecting their security, or ours, even if you "think" they weren't screening those entering the base. I'm sorry but I don't buy that for a second. Choose a different venue next time. DON'T expect our soldiers to change policy from the ground up.

InTheKnow, were you on the Frimpong jury? Are you the boyfriend? Come clean, and disclose your connection to this case. Because you are the loudest voice, based on your POST HISTORY, in defense of the guilty verdict, on Inde's website. What gives??? C'mon, we can't see who you REALLY are... that's confidential. Spill your truth, instead of implying....InTheKNOW...what's your "connection"?
