At this point, is there any evidence he was drunk? I'd not believe a blood sample taken by the police, they might tamper with it. Only an independent test taken outside of police possession would be convincing, given the circumstances. If I'd just been beaten I would also ask what my options were for truly accurate testing. Does the SBPD have a video when the blood sample was asked for and taken?
Is there an independent check that his license was actually suspended? Might be true, but just because it is in a police report doesn't make ti true, although DeNunzio probably would have said so if his suspension period were over.
Even the police report says that no lights were flashed until DeNunzio *was turning into Loreto*. It is easy to imagine hew was focused on the parking lot and not sure that the lights were related to him.

Shredded the waivers? What a mess. All of the people in this case make me want to deposit my breakfast in the commode.

Our society is just too lawsuit-happy. Yuk.
The edges of our communities that border the dry wild areas are simply very, very dangerous. Fire danger comes with the territory.
The lion's portion of the responsibility rests with those who choose to live in the dangerous fire zone.
Good people lost a lot in the various fires between 2007 and 2010. I don't want to bash them. But to search for the speck in the eye of these brush clearing guys and the tool manufacturer while ignoring the plank in the eyes of the residents of a very dangerous location seems wrong to me.

Storke and Hollister is already a darned crowded intersection. With a new Montecito Bank on the northwest corner and now this gigantic hotel on the northeast corner, might as well give up driving through there. On the other hand if the hotel pays for lots of new buses to Camino Real Marketplace, maybe that would be OK.

I didn't argue for moving back to Europe or Africa, or for bulldozing anything.
Just don't name a new terminal after the ignoramuses.
Name it Sitiptip, or Quwa, or Helo, all Chumash nearby place names.

Perhaps Sheriff Brown could take all the undocumented prisoners on a bus and drive them into Vandenberg, making them a Federal problem.

The airport runways, as well as the new terminal, sit on landfill created by bulldozing the Canalino cemetery on Mescalitan island into the Goleta Slough wetland. So many human remains the workers called it `Skeleton Island', which kinda sounds like Mescalitan.
That's a major cultural and environmental crime.
Sorry, don't name anything their after the criminals.

Legal immigrants are fantastic! Native born people are US citizens, period, whatever the status of their parents.
Breaking the law is just as reprehensible when wall streeters do it, when 19th century expansions did it, and, I'm sorry to say, when undocumented immigrants do it.
We had immigration reform in the 1980's, supposedly, for all time.
What Mr. Pizano needs to discuss is.... what about all the people in foreign countries who applied for US residency, legally, from the 1980's until now? How can we provide a path to citizenship for those now in our country illegally without going back and allowing immigration to all those who applied legally and were turned down?

Robo, let all the squabblers prove their humility by treating the homeless like royalty, not just `authority figures'.
They all think their problems are *so* important.
But, maybe not!

well, Nick is an angry poodle, nothing unexpected there. But all the rest (including, now, Judge Hill) are porcine wrestlers in a scat tub. I sure wish they'd all get together and cook dinner and wash feet of the homeless... squandering public resources on adjudicating their careless behavior is unpleasant!
