Linda,What are the possible "mental health issues" that would trigger a state-wide computer entry regarding the purchase of a firearm? I didn't see anything in the early tapes that would probably meet that type of requirement in this specific case. There are a ton of troubled adults and kids, but how do you choose which one gets "branded" on a state-wide computer available to gun shops?

Too late, and tremendously ill informed. Sheriff Bill Brown wins.

All I can say is shameful. Surprised the Indy even allowed it.

You have got to be kidding. You think Sandra Brown would have prevented the tragedy in Isla Vista? Do you really want to put politics into this tragedy that no Sheriff, past or present, could have prevented. That is sick.

tippypop,Rodger was seeing your mental health professionals on a regular basis. If we took into custody everyone who makes bizarre statements, only of couple of us would be able to post on this blog.

dprince and whosecityisthin2012,Can you spell UNION? That's her only issue. Janet flip flopped on the beach "retreat" and I'm sure she is making the Goleta city people happy with her stand on revenue neutrality. I think this will be a close race.
On City Cops Endorse Wolf

mangomamma,PORAC is a state-wide organization which handles insurance and legal defense for peace officers. It does not have anything to do with salaries. It's members and board are all active peace officers. The president, Mike Durant, is a Santa Barbara County Deputy Sheriff.
The Santa Barbara Police Association does not necessarily speak for the actual officers, rather they lobby for better pay and benefits. Roger Aceves has been retired for several years and probably doesn't know many or most of the current officers. Janet is all union, just as the POA is.

PS I think Janet may have had some of her city sisters push on McGrew. It's all about paybacks - always has been.

I'm surprised that the City Police Association got involved - Supervisor Wolf does't have anything formally to do with city departments. The city police have even gone against the Deputy Sheriff's Association, which Wolf does have a formal relationship with. Personalities, I think. I wouldn't give the city endorsement much weight on this one.
