They're gonna be safer in jail than they will be walking the breakwater at the harbor.

whatsinsb, you speak out of apparent ignorance, so don't flaunt it. SBCOJ is regularly filled beyond capacity with marijuana violators, people who dare to drive without a license, people who dare to "resist" by asking WTF are you stopping me here on the sidewalk?, who don't have proof of residence ID, who take a nap in a city park, by shoplifters, by those who dare to defend themselves from random drunken assault...and the list of "hardened" criminal offenses goes on, none of whom are candidates for "redemption and revitalization" opportunities (the very notion of which is a joke coming out of Bill Brown's mouth).Have you ever been inside SBCOJ? It's an experience in draconian brutality, widely considered among California Custody workers as the worst jail in the state, with the highest inmate death rate in the 11 western states, an operation run by an undersheriff who avoided prosecution for sexually harrassing female staff by summarily resigning (gotta protect that pension too!), and overseen by a sheriff who is more concerned about getting a "Mission style" edifice built with his name on the brass plaque out front.$80 million? Those funds should be spent on mental health facilities and upon ongoing microscopic oversight of everything local law enforcement does.

They call them "pigs" for a reason.
On Sheriff Fires Jail Guards Accused of Assaulting Inmate

Santa Barbara County Jail is widely recognized as the most poorly administered jail in the state. The per capita "death by natural causes" in SBCO Jail tell a tale nobody seems to acknowledge, simply because all inmates are considered "criminals".Whether or not the plaintiff in this case is a convicted murder-rapist, the fact is that Johnson and Kirsch acted illegally and got busted for it (of course, this kind of crap goes on all day in the jail). The reason is clear: Bill Brown doesn't have a clue what's going on, nor does he have a clue as to how to correct the problem.The fact that Undersheriff Anderson was forced to resign rather than face criminal charges for violating Federal Labor Laws pursuant to his sexual harrassment of an officer ostensibly reporting to him...a case that was summarily swept under Bill Brown's office rug...should be enough to get Brown himself to resign.

Proving once again how completely CRAZY the SB Court's sentencing protocols are. Oh, wait...she must be a celebrity...or a relative of Iya Falcone or Paula Lopez. They all walked.

LOIS CAPPS NEEDS TO BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE.Pure and simple.Let's not forget her original lie: I won't run for my husband's office after filling out his first term.
SHE'S A MACHINE HACK and has never cast a single vote of her own volition. Please, please...keep her out of the next parade.

Oh, sure. $500,000 bail for this...while Paula Lopez drives into parked cars half in the bag, Ilya Falcone does the same in broad daylight, Bill Brown's under-sheriff harrasses SBSD female employees...and they all walk out of jail with no bail amounts set...and while assorted street violence generates bail amounts of one-fifth that?Just how corrupt are things?VERY.

THROW THE BUM OUT.Isn't he supposed to be RUNNING things? If so, how does he escape responsibility for his former Under Sheriff--who is tasked with running the jail, widely known as THE WORST COUNTY JAIL IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA--who, rather than doing his job was out diddling female officers?I'll avoid my usual rant about the incredible corruption that runs through County and City law enforcement (Bill Brown and Cam Sanchez would both rather be somewhere else...if only they could get hired), the DA's office (a win-at-any-cost ethical joke), and the desk of The "Honorable" Frank Ochoa, who runs his courtroom like a Joyce Dudley slumber party...which may explain his perpetual somnolence on the bench and his egregious record of judicial error on appeal.Bottom line: it's really expensive to tolerate these fools, and it's scandalous to allow Brown/Sanchez/Dudley/Ochoa to quietly provide Iya Falcone, Paula Lopez, Kasi Beutel, Aaron Tudor, etc., etc., with Get Out of Jail cards.Election Day can't come soon enough.
On Sheriff Bill Brown Announces Reelection Bid

What a load of specious, self-serving, politically-orchestrated nonsense. Durling has no business printing anything about law enforcement; he likes movies and has saved the film festival. Endless kudos for that.But to interview this criminal and give her a public forum for her self-serving "I'm just a mom who loves my job and when I'm not working all I really care about is doing even more wonderful things" is specious public relations management that borders on the laughable.Anyone who knows anything--and yes Locke, I do in fact KNOW from profoundly personal experience that I will not detail here--about the unfettered corruption in this city is probably pulling their heads out of the toilet bowl where they've puked up dinner after reading this treacle posted by Durling who, we must remember, spends half of his life in the dark in a world of complete fiction. The FACT of the matter is that Cam Sanchez would turn in his badge if he could get a job anywhere else (he tried and failed, remember?), Joyce Dudley has never walked past a camera or microphone she didn't lather over, her minions in the DA's office commit egregious Code of Ethics violations in the service of their win-loss records (justice be damned), and Frank Ochoa is a Magoo-buffoon who serves only at the whim of Dudley's office (who, of course, cut Paula Lopez plenty of slack just to keep Frank on a short leash).These are all dangerous people--we live in a small town where the traffic cops feel the need to carry assault rifles--and are to be feared, avoided, and shunned.
