This sounds almost too dumb to be true.

On Man Arrested Outside Gang Hearing

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.

Sounds like probably one of the best ways to do it, but I was concerned about the feasibility. Do you know if it worked out ok for the Hispanic community in IV too?

@formersbso. How did they keep the out of towners away? Or how did they differentiate the residents from non-residents? I know I had my vehicle registered in IV when I was a student and bills for my house, but many of my friends did not. Did they show copies of their lease or something like that?

Well said. This is what I have been trying to articulate while reading so many judgmental comments on social media and comment sections from outsiders. There is an mutual understanding between the thousands of people who lived in and moved on from IV to very productive lives.

You do understand that UCSB is on spring break and IV is pretty much empty? Highly unlikely that this was student.
