A word to the wise, law-abiding or not:
If you see a uniformed member of SBSD or SBSD...DUCK!
On Man Shot by Police at San Andres Street Home
Posted on December 9 at 6:09 p.m.
Prayers are in order for Ms. Dies.... and SHAME is in order for Ms. Capps who will now do all she can to avoid ANY association with this tragedy or the sad fellow behind the wheel.
Sickening, truly sickening.
On DUI Hit-and-Run Suspect Raymond Morua Has Criminal Record
Posted on December 9 at 5:37 p.m.
Lois Capps--breaker of her own promise to never run for her late husband's office once she took the seat merely to serve out his elected term--owns this guy. Failure to run background checks is owned by the one with the responsibility; as the titular head of her own office, maybe she should stop all the hand-waving at every media opportunity and actually manage her overpaid staff. This is purely the product of local politics doing its usual "thing"...keeping those in power IN power.
Re the alcohol issues: what flagrant hypocrisy. We live in a community where DUI enforcement is conducted by the likes of Kasi Beutel and Aaron Tudor under color of authority granted them by Cam Sanchez...all of whom would dearly love to get out of SBPD if only another agency would hire them (but none will). We live in a community where Joyce Dudley pontificates about drug and alcohol enforcement while County Supervisors permit alcohol to be sold in every gas station on every corner. Who do you think buys beer at gas stations? People who drink in their vehicles. Duh.
On Lois Capps Representative Arrested for DUI Hit-and-Run

Lois Capps--the same woman who, when stepping in to fill her late husband's Congressional seat for the balance of his term, promised the voters that she had no intention of ever running for the office beyond her husband's elected tenure, continues to occupy the office at the behest of the Democratic Machine simply because she has neither ever had nor ever voiced an independent thought remotely contrary to the "party line"--is perfectly qualified to be a greeter at WalMart...and little else.This sad episode--a complete failure of management that goes right to the top of her office--is a clear indication of her unmatched abilities to ride in parades and show up at barbecues to mollify constituents who depend upon her political largesse.Tar and feathers, I say.

The one who should sue is Bill Brown, 'cause his re-election just went bye-bye. Deservedly so, for the fish always stinks from the head...
I, for one, want my money back if this tom-foolery is what we pay salaries for.
On Undersheriff Jim Peterson Retired Amid 'Sexting' Scandal
Posted on September 14 at 11:14 p.m.
The leading industry in California: government. The leading arm of government in terms of employment: courts, jails, prisons. Follow the money. Clowns like Frank Ochoa get elected with the conspiratorial support of clowns like Joyce Dudley and her band of merry jugglers...who win bonuses and vacations for over-charging and unethically prosecuting everything that comes their way--unless the accused happens to be a local celebrity (can you say Paula Lopez?) or a government crony (can you say Iya Falcone?)--and then making plea bargains to pump up their conviction rates...Which does what?Fills the jails and prisons, which is surely appreciated by the subset of morons eager to work custody jobs so that they can finally feel higher on the food chain of life...and get their benefits paid for...EVER. And who do you think they support at election time? All of the aforementioned who do an amazing job of creating the "product" (incarceration) that keeps them working.Follow the money...

Bill Brown is the sheriff. It falls in his lap. Time for him to go.

Now let's see the prosecution of those two Neanderthal custody deputies and an investigation into Beutel and Tudor...all of whom deserve exactly the sentence meted out in this case.
On Police Embezzler Sentenced to 10 Years

Quick: publish the decedent's prior criminal history, for that my help quell the outrage over the trigger-happy shooting of Tacadena. Lucky for the shooting cop that his target didn't have a clean arrest record, because that might mean that the cop would face some sort of meaningful review. As it is, the cop will undoubtedly get a series of backslaps back at the station. Among the dangerous street gangs in SB: law enforcement.
On Police Shooting Suspect Had Extensive Criminal History

Perfect. Another "officer involved shooting" that will be swept aside by Joyce Dudley, among whose constituents are the police union.Here's a question: aren't SBPD trained in anything other than trigger-pulling? How about negotiations with people who are clearly out of their gourd/under the influence? How about backing up when confronted with a knife-wielder for a few moments while police backup is summoned? How about simply physically disarming the drunk-druggie-nutjob? Unless the drunk-druggie-nutjob is a U.S. Navy Seal with a knife, anyone of reasonable athletic ability serving on the SBPD should have been trained in some basic hand-to-hand sufficient to have disarmed this guy.Can't wait to see what the shooting distance was. Less than six feet? If not, what was the real threat (remember, each street cop is wearing a kevlar vest, impervious to fatal knife wounds)? If so, why not just take a step forward and take the knife away? If a cop can't do that, he belongs behind a desk, not out on the streets.Sigh. Another episode of county law enforcement protocols proving once again that this among the most dangerous places in the state.
