Murillo...seriously.. how out of touch can you be? You called your meeting and got your bluff called. Did she seriously think she could pull in a bunch of associates of the people on the dream team 27 and intimidate the rest of the city council? RIDICULOUS and talk about a waste of money. How much did that hearing/debate cost?
It is absolutely true that with the bullying/intimidating tactics of gangs, most of the law abiding public does not want to stand up on a podium in front of all these associates, perhaps have their name flashed in the local press (where by you can get all sorts of other info via internet..) to speak what most feel about the injunction. I have met the gentleman that did and I totally commend him for his courage to do so.
This whole money thing, real estate price, civil right thing is a joke. Our civil servants are supposed to be here to protect (and serve) those that abide by the law. Not give out second, third, fourth chances to these hoodlums. Nor cater to any special group that only cares about THEIR money and damned the rest of the town.
I think putting it up for vote would really show the stripes on this zebra. Forget the trial, just put it up for vote. I predict it would pass with flying colors and there will be an appeal on the trial anyway. I would hope this would be a living document that could carry the capacity of up to 50 of the biggest thugs around...You can get on or off the list depending on your upstanding behavior.

Tort law at it's best.. Los Angeles based attorney...“These are not people trying to get rich off their daughter’s death,”..Ok, lets see if actions speak louder than words. Horrific tragedy no doubt. But if the lawyer sues for $10million which would be his percentage plus the aforementioned expenses and donation to drinking a drives programs, that would seem a little out of sink. Good luck when proving he was on/off the clock. When I leave my work and am driving home, is my employer responsible for me causing an accident to and from work? Terribly sad for the Dies...and I hope they receive some form of restitution..I worry about the lawyer side turning this into a 3 ring circus.

Interesting choice of pictures of Mallory by the Independent. I can count 3 cocktails (her holding one) and two kegs in the background. Sadly this is a collision of alcohol related issues and decisions all coming together resulting in this poor girls death. I agree that the distilled spirits industry should be more accountable as they make money hand over fist. Even the bars could use some ethics training as far as when to cut people off.

Is it just me or does it seem that someone is deliberately pushing some buttons here? What would your MOTHER say?

A Coastal Commission planner took exception with the desal plant’s “old-school” water-intake valve located on the ocean floor. The commission has required more recent desal proposals to “drill” water from beneath the ocean floor? Please give us the name of this genius?
Seriously WT@#$%@#$? This coastal commission is WORTHLESS!!! Build mansions in Goleta (which of course use lots of water) but you have to drill for ocean water???@#$%@#$%@#???????
Also 39% capacity is a joke. I bet it is much less. Silt Silt Silt and we are all just sitting around watching the beaches float away.

I mean seriously what is Wendy thinking? Is she that hard up from crappy News Press sales that she needs to jump on the pro bono/contingency band wagon for a civil suit against the government (or maybe just bitter because they ruled against her a while back even though she got the appeal) to try to scrape up a few extra $$???? It is shameful.

excuse me...GRANDIOSE MISSTATEMENT OF FACTS...I clearly needed to make that perfectly clear.
Posted on April 17 at 2:32 p.m.
Gosh do you work for the news press? Darn that whole time continuum thing...did Capps hire the convicted felon or did the convicted felon become such after Capps hired him? Granted his wrap sheet should have been checked out prior to his initial employment, but this very gandious misstatement of facts what makes this 4 part series total political BS.
convicted of grand theft by embezzlement, a misdemeanor, ......

Yeah, I think the News Press ought to be ashamed of itself. Total Hollywood over glam dramatization of a really sad local story for political reasons. Wendy, obviously would like to be rid of Capps. I mean look at the douche bags she hires, Andy Caldwell? ACCKKK!!!! So she takes a horribly sad story and tries to use it for her own gain. Who knows, maybe Katich is trying to suck up and make her happy.
Of course Capps or anyone would distance themselves from such a travesty. Does anyone really think Capps is personally responsible for the actions of her staff 24/7 and even more so after the decision making of those people have been altered with booze? Not making any excuses for the perpetrator, but I wonder how the victim would have felt about all this BS grandstanding after the fact. Geeze it is like Geraldo Rivera opening Al Capone's vault. 4 part series, yeah right 3 parts drama one part fact...maybe.

I think there is some officer restitution fee on certain DUI arrests. It is where the convicted offender has to pay an hourly rate for each one of the officers responding on scene. It is kind of a joke if 8 of them show up eating doughnuts to arrest some drunken old lady while watching over a rookie making his first arrest, but it is away for the state to get some revenue from these offenses. Perhaps a similar "surcharge" could be levied upon UCSB and the IV slumlords association so that the rest of us taxpayers don't have to pay for all this babysitting.
