I think we need to change the culture where mass murderers like this guy are covered from all angles in the media. It's sad that we know the names and lives of the shooters more than the victims. We don't report the names of the people who commit suicide by jumping off Cold Springs Bridge. Why do the same for someone like this who is essentially committing suicide?

I think I saw the link posted on redit. Just clicked on it and was blown away. David Attius anyone? It now seems to make sense why random (but not so random) girls where singled out.

@EastBeach I guess Katydid52 and I just skimmed the article and missed that part.

Katydid52, I think I remember reading somewhere that you can still use plastic bags for leaky meat, but that may be from a different city.

This sounds almost too dumb to be true.

If by leaving alone, loonpt means not using aggressive tactics to curb underage drinking, I agree with him. It would be great if they could get out of their desk chairs, leave their cop cars, and walk around for a change. That is why they are called Foot Patrol, right? Interract with the residents during the day time. Maybe introduce themselves. Leave a card so the residents can contact them if something goes wrong.

I teach a lot of undergrads and I have found that making them feel like you are cutting them a break (even though you are not) or talking with them on a personal level goes a long way. They respond well to that sort of stuff. Maybe writing the students up for a ticket them ripping it up would change the student's attitude towards police and create a better atmosphere.

Also, what about all the permanent residents on the west end of IV? They are totally neglected and they have to deal with some of the worst issues facing IV. I have heard about some pretty weird stories down there, and when they call the police, no one ever comes out. I'm speculating, but my guess is that if it doesn't have to do with the party scene, it's not worth their time because that's where they get all of their money from these ABC grants and such.

On Body Found on Isla Vista Beach

@pardallchewinggum I believe that someone fell off the cliffs downtown last year. I think it was at Shoreline Park? It happens in San Diego too. I'm actually surprised it does not happen more often in Isla Vista. The students seem to be pretty aware of the dangers, but accidents happen.

How about both Hank? Kind of levels the playing field.
