Whatever he may be he certainly doesn't look like a "user," likely a rare stone cold major dealer. Was there a traffic violation that prompted this stop or information from an informant that Uriarte would be driving with the quantity of drugs seized?
Hugh - Legitimate retail businesses, for the most part, don't engage in the sale of illegal drugs.
On Police Nab Major Drug Dealer

As most local residents probably know the LCJHS Lancer Band has been practicing in the field for many, many, years. Surely, there must be something more significant these complainant's can find to whine about. You are not likely to find any band members amongst the local groups of "wanna be's" that would like to think they are "gang" members creating problems in our neighborhoods. Put more energy against the kids that are creating problems, not the band members having a positive impact on their education and their school. Some people just need something, anything, to whine about. GO LANCERS!

Not much information released up to this date due to this shooting being investigated but I have a couple questions. Is any agency outside the PD investigating? Will the officer(s) involved be required to meet with a psychologist/counselor to discuss this incident in an attempt to determine if the officer(s) are ready to return to duty?

I heard the last time this store was hit a couple suspects entered, tried to rob and were carried out by the coroner.

There are probably other "stashes" of weapons at other locations cops have yet to learn about. But, whether there are one or a dozen guns confiscated during this latest search makes little difference. One gun in the hands of any one of these bean 'fartin idiots makes them "well armed."
Ever wonder why a very low percentage of these "boys" enlist in the military? I suspect few enlist because they don't have the intelligence to pass the enlistment examination and know they couldn't handle the discipline required in the military.

Foo - Agreed. The only thing Obama is truly capable of is deception, a well documented liar with absolutely no credibility.
I will have the most transparent administration. I have Shovel ready jobs. The IRS is not targeting anyone. It was about a movie. If I had a son. I will put an end to the type of politics that “breeds division, conflict and cynicism". You didn't build that. I will restore trust in Government. The cops acted stupidly. I am not after your guns. The Public Will Have 5 Days To Look At Every Bill That Lands On My Desk. It's not my red line it is the world’s red line. Whistle blowers will be protected. “We got back Every Dime we Used to Rescue the Banks, with interest. I will close Gitmo. I am not spying on American citizens. ObamaCare will be good for America. You can keep your family doctor. Premiums will be lowered by $2500. You can keep your current healthcare plan.

Would you consider the following quote from Obama an oxymoron?
"I, Barrack Hussain Obama pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America."

"The end of a beginning."
Catchy little phrase, but, while I applaud the efforts of the PD in their attempt to curtail the increase in gang violence, this effort will unfortunately not be ending anything (other than this investigation). Just like the "war on drugs" is not stopping importation, use or sale of illegal drugs this investigation will simply slow down gang activity. I believe history has proven gang activity simply might be minimized for a period of time but it will not be eliminated. Too many idiots with too much idle time on their hands and nothing to do but get involved with gangs.
Sanchez needs to keep applying for other departments if he is surprised that generations of family members are involved in these criminal activities. Were there not generations of some Santa Barbara families in the 60's and 70's involved in drug activities in Santa Barbara? The "Mexican Mafia" and the "Nuestra Familia" have been in the Santa Barbara area for many years. One of the former field (outside the prison) generals for the "Mexican Mafia" resided in the 200 block W. Haley Street in the 70's. I was very surprised to read "It’s not clear if La Eme has been here all along." What have the gang/intelligence officers at the PD been doing if they do not have an idea how long this or any other any gang has been in town?
While I'd like to be optimistic about law enforcement efforts in their "war on drugs" and attempts to eliminate gang activity I believe the best that can be done is to slow down each activity. Again, too many idiots eager to get involved in one or both criminal activities.
