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.
On Police Officer Fatally Shoots Man With Knife

Where are the mug shots of Kirsch and Johnson?Wait, let me guess: it's against "policy" and the compliant SB press community buys that crap.Bottom line: this is the puss bursting out of the hot pimple of ubiquitous Santa Barbara KORRUPTION.Highest per capita level of "officer involved" shootings of any county in the state.Highest per capita county jail inmate fatalities by "natural causes" in the state.Aaron Tudor...Kasie Beutel...These two clowns, Johnson and Kirsch (who will never be seen in handcuffs, EVER)...The list will only grow until the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor (hah!) actually DO SOMETHING about this toxic police state among the swaying palms...
On Jail Guards Gone Rogue?
Posted on August 17 at 11:42 p.m.
There are a number of gangs in SB...and one of them is the SBSD Custody Staff.Bill Brown is toast. Just lost his job. Compare the number of inmate deaths per capita in SBCO Jail to any other jurisdiction in the tri-counties. You'll be shocked. "Natural causes" is always the ruling. Sure...when someone stops breathing, it's "natural" that they die. SBCOJ is a draconian dungeon run by psychopathic bullies and passive-aggressive office staff. The Grand Jury has already revealed the incredible state of affairs at the SBCO Coroner's office (managed by the Sheriff, by the way), so no wonder all inmate deaths are "natural".Joyce Dudley will never prosecute these turds, just as she doesn't prosecute Iya Falcone, Paula Lopez, Koa Misi, or anyone connected to celebrity, City Hall, or the courts.It's just a Corrupt Community, and we all know it. Dudley and judges like Ochoa are in lock-step for one purpose only: re-election.These custody clowns will be quietly fired, charges will be dropped, it will all drop off the media radar promptly, and Cam Sanchez will keep looking for a job so that he can get out of town before the hammer drops on him.
On Sheriff's Deputies Charged with Assault

This is a JOKE, right? Because Lopez sits on a parade float once/year and reads off a teleprompter (poorly), she's excused from dealing with the local judicial system that torments the rest of those who make the mistake of walking down State Street with a couple of drinks under their belt? This is CORRUPTION at it's most blatant. And to ignore the complicity of Dudley and hubby Frank in all of this--can you imagine what the late-night phone calls must be like?--only feeds the ravenous beast of the SB Police State. Oh, wait---Lopez admits to having a "medical problem". I wonder if it's the same "medical problem" that plagues a large percentage of those arrested each and every day on our streets, and who are JAILED and PROSECUTED without consideration of their "medical problem." In SB, Lady Justice is indeed blind...blind to the realities of CORRUPTION. Where is the Grand Jury when we need them?

You boys dance around the crux of the issue: CORRUPTION in this county is RAMPANT. Political posturing, trumped-up press conferences, and air-time. That's all it's about. Where's my next job? What office can I possibly win? Oh, wait, it's getting to uncomfy here in SB, so I'll start applying for gigs out of the area (Cam Sanchez).If you want to have any impact upon the idiocy around us, stop arguing with each other (half of you clearly have waayy too much time on your hands) and express yourselves to the Regional Director of the FBI. They are the only ones with a hope of coming into SBCO and cleaning this dismal mess up...just as the feds came into California to do something about prison overcrowding (a direct result of local DA's like Dudley overcharging to generate guilty plea/convictions because we're "against crime" for purely political purposes). Like it or not, we live in a county that is truly a police state and not even the County Grand Jury has the clout to change things.
On Coroner's Office: Small and Smelly

Bottom line: Dudely and her girls are so far in the sack with Sanchez and his goons that there is only one wise path: avoid contact with these insane clowns at all costs. "Coffee with a cop"? They can't be serious. Please observe that the motorcycle officers now carry AK-47s, that Beutel still wears a badge, that Tudor remains uncharged of his many crimes.The law enforcement in this town is a scandal.The county is not much better. The percentage of "officer involved" shootings in SBCO FAR exceeds what the population would indicate when compared to other California jurisdictions.Great fire departments.Horrid judicial/police, draconian jails where "innocent until proven guilty" means you could die at the hands of sub-normal IQ custody staff any day.One day the feds will come in and shove them all aside with a series of indictments.Just wait.
On Defense Attorney Claims City Cop Threatened Him

Threats of arrest after the fact rather than reasonable guidelines BEFORE the event. Perfect. (This guy is lucky it was SBSD and not SBPD, or he may have received the Aaron Tudor treatment.)
On Earl Warren Disturbs the Peace

Yet again another feather in the cap of Howdy-Doody Dudley. She seems to have learned well the lessons of Tom Sneddon: waste taxpayer money at will in pursuit of headlines. If Pini has any sense, he'll go to federal court and slam these idiots with a nice fat conspiracy, malicious prosecution, witness tampering, and racketeering lawsuit. This idiot county will give him a couple million in a nice, quiet settlement just to avoid the truth coming out about their corrupt officials.
On Burglary Charges Reduced for Dario Pini

Ochoa on the Appellate Bench? Are you serious? He can't even maintain his calendar in SB or issue rulings without reading the lips of the Assistant D.A.'s before him. His wildly inconsistent sentences, pandering to Dudley and her girls, and transparent inability to stay awake or to even show up in the courtroom on time (if it isn't his wife disappearing or his vacation days or picking up his kids from school, it's Fiesta duties) will really go over well at the appellate level.Another joke in SB courts!

The fish always stinks from the head, and "dead tuna" Cam Sanchez OWNS this travesty. Let's all please find him the job out of town he's been looking for!PSYCHO COPS have no place in SB, nor do those who support them.Election Day means something!Darryl Genis for D.A.!
