SBCC needs to address the image problem created by the minority of students who drive, bike, walk, and skateboard without regard for their own safety or the safety of others.

Did you really need to post their photos? What's the point of that? To shame them? It's like the Indy is making itself part of the criminal-justice system by punishing them.

I love that this kind of article and dialogue appears in the Santa Barbara Independent--or at least on the website.
