Tourist - yup, and you started it with your "homeless" theory. Good job ol' chap (or lassy)!
On Deputy Shoots Dog During Montecito Arrest

This is ridiculous. A year later and she still hasn't filed a police report? Why? Ok, her time is too valuable now, apparently. But why not a year ago when she was allegedly raped? Why didn't she call the police? Clearly she's not concerned about the publicity or protecting her privacy in regards to the situation.
This is NOT the school's job! Rape is a serious and terrible crime! It's for the police and the DA to handle, not a committee at a college. Why don't people understand this?

Tourist - why wouldn't a Montecito resident have warrants for alcohol? Do rich people not get drunk? Haha, yeah right! Warrants could be as simple as a bench warrant for failure to appear for a Public Intoxication citation. Having "warrants for alcohol" doesn't mean someone is homeless, just means they have an alcohol problem and probably don't care enough to deal with any resulting legal issues they may have (Public drunkeness, disturbing the peace, DUI, etc....) This is a common occurrence with "rich folk" who just don't care.
As for the DOG - I agree with billclausen here. Why not even try pepper spraying or tazing? Why go directly to shooting to death? Is it easier to hit a moving dog with a bullet than it is to hit it with a tazer? I don't actually know but I bet it's a LOT EASIER to hit a dog with pepper spray.
Still, ultimately the owner's fault for "letting loose" the hound in the first place.

love - what does the gender of the suspect have to do with any of this?

14noscams - because the "toxic chemicals" are probably those found in bags of fertilizer.
Just more scare tactics to demonize a completely benign plant that is NOT addictive, NOT deadly and NOT as bad as people like Jarvis want so badly to force others to believe it is.

NO plant requires 6 gallons of water a day to live, NONE. This is a skewed statistic (like many are) and it's being misread by hateful, anti-pot folks as some kind of "proof" that marijuana is evil and environmentally harmful. BS.
Keep eating up all the propaganda Jarvis, you're taking the bait just like a hungry trout eats day-glo marshmallows.

Legalize it and grow your own so the NorCal farmers aren't using all the stream water, simple. Happy 4/20!

Wow Loon, that IS ridiculous. Sad truth is, most people today are just giant pussies and get offended by their own shadow....and would sue it too if they could!

Loon - rich old people with boats are allowed to make a mess. College kids having fun are not. It's the way it goes here in Santa Barbara.
