John these are all different agencies you mention. You are comparing them to a large east coast city police agency and fail to draw any corealation to their numbers. I am not hiding, I have refuted your rehetoric every step of the way. Your post seems nonsensical.
Your last sentence is the most incredulous. You have offered no proof that any shooting was illegal except for the preceved fact that per captia "two" shootings here in SB are more than NYPD. Do you not see the faulty train of thought here? State facts, what about any of the 7 shooting that you champion as proof were illegal? Use sources, please convince me. The mere inference that multiple shootings by different people is somehow illegal does not make sense. It is a far-flung allegation.
Now you're saying there is 500,000 people in Santa Barbara County instead of 300,000 as you mentioned before. Numbers don't change John. You used your 300,000 number to base your per capita information off. Now that changes too. Per Google it is 431,000.

So I found JohnLocke's "source" for his 2012 "data"
Nice try John... But all 7 shooting were in North county. Either Santa Maria, Lompoc, or rural area involving CHP, SDSO, or Santa Maria PD. Way to skew information.
This article is about South County.... SBPD, they had 0 shootings in 2012.

Thanks loonpt but no. What I am looking for is source for the data. Not "we had 7", where is he getting that number. i could make up a number too. He said he found a source, please post the source.

"@deniseL: I don't make statements without backup data."
John I am merely asking you for the "backup data" that you claim to have. Now it seems you don't have it. Your defensiveness speaks volumes.
Your argument is that SB county has more shooting per capita than NYC police. While nothing you have posted backs up this claim when asked you attack the person questioning you.
What conclusions are you drawing from your argument? That by the mere fact that SB county has more shootings that they are illegal? While you haven't even proven that you champion that as a fact.
I would suggest you focus on each shooting and to its merits. I doubt the police, sheriff, or CHP put caps on the amount of officer involved shooting and then restricts them from protecting people. If we had crazed gun toting maniacs running around SB would you prefer that they were not dealt with accordingly because they have to shoot less people?
You assertion is unsubstantiated by "data" you claim to have but can not reference. When you are questioned about it you attack me. Sorry but I don't agree with you. I would prefer our LE to not be handcuffed in protecting us by unrealistic claims by a keyboard cowboy.

Ok JohnLocke how many cop shootings were there in SB county in 2011 then? Since that is the comparable year you are using for NYC. And what are the numbers for the past 10 years? If you have ever taken a statistics class you would know narrowing your scope of data to such a narrow range is manipulating data to help your point. All be it not correct....
Posted on December 8 at 11:06 a.m.
What are the numbers JohnLocke? Or are you just alluding to knowing when you don't?
