The Capri Apartment website reassures parents their children will be cared for by their onsite managers: http://capriiv.com/parents
If the Capri management who had day to day contact as well as room mate screening authority did not detect aberrational clues about Rodgers, what were the police supposed to pick up in one visit?
Why did the parents not register their concerns with the onsite Capri management, as they were encouraged to do?
On Isla Vista Killer's April 30 Check-Up

Common sense shows more people got killed by cars in IV than guns. You go with what causes the most harm in the specific setting. Police should have checked to see if this guy had a car.

Should the SBSO also have done a vehicle registration check to see if he also owned a loaded car and an ebay or amazon.com check to see if he recently purchased hammers, machetes and knives?
There was nothing in the April 30 visit to trigger this level of investigation when both mother and son stated they were happy with the resolution of the police call. You need comprehensive policy justification for anything further; not Monday morning quarter-backing.

Rodger's mother was concerned. The police contacted Rodgers mother in Rodger's presence and all concluded there were no further concerns between them. Case closed for the April 30 visit.
Keep your rants within the facts. Please be the first in line to demand more police for the violence-plagued Deltopia celebration, and let the rest of us county taxpayers know where we can send you the bill for these extra IV policing demands.

Someday the Lefties will realize paying health care premiums is not the same thing as actually getting health care. SoeotoroCare is merely a wealth-transfer system so no point calling it health care reform. It just redirected the money; but did nothing for health care.

There is nothing grass roots about Lois Capp's support any longer. She is a creation and a pawn of political action committees who now own her and any possible good she can do for us.
She has been on the job too long, lost her local touch and now is wholly dependent upon special interest groups. Typical Washington story, unfortunately.
Time for new blood.

There is no such thing as free housing. Nor greedy landlords who also get stuck with the maintenance, insurance, upkeep and property taxes too even if never seen by the tenant -- HOA fees, and their equivalents, are part of property ownership.
All I can say is plan a career choice carefully that takes these fundamentals into consideration if anyone wants to live in this area. Society does not "owe" a place to live just because this is where they decide they want to live. You earn it and you pay for it. All of it.
There are plenty other far more affordable locales, if the concept of a mortgage and attendant costs of home ownership are beyond one's means here.

Track back the origins of this alleged "96% of scientists" claim and you will be surprised there is no foundation to the claim, even when first uttered. Sheer repetition ad nauseum never turned it into fact. Sorry.

Could this be the same Das Williams who was so adamant about protecting the due process rights of teachers who had committed the most heinous of crimes right in their classrooms?
That might make him look politically exploitive or merely a teacher union tool. Naaawww.
