"That’s directly contrary to the report released on Tuesday by the Environmental Defense Center, whose student intern, Matthew Buggert, was funded by a UCSB Coastal Fund grant to research the state’s public records related to the platform, which is offshore of the campus."
So UCSB is funding the ENVIRO Police? Shouldn't this be a matter for the EPA instead of an student intern at UCSB? What is the jurisdiction of the UCSB Coastal Fund grant? This is kind of amusing as it is just the first salvo by UCSB to rid itself of platform Holly because it lies within a MPA (Marine Protected Area).

Seems to me fracking in the channel, along a fault zone, along the ring of fire, where a nuclear power plant is nearby is not the most conservative idea for energy production. Didn't we just have 4 minor earthquakes in the channel a couple weeks ago?

More importantly, when is Choice Dudley up for ejection? I mean reelection? Dang what is wrong with this keyboard?

Agreed that the real estate market should not be the deciding factor on this one bit. Not even in the discussion as an excuse or a crutch. Sadly that is what it has degraded to. Public safety and the future direction of our youth is what is should be about first and foremost.
Did anyone notice while the big SBIFF is going on, there are people chasing each other down the streets with baby strollers stabbing each other in the back? !@#$%@#??????
On Gang Injunction Trial Slated for Cinco de Mayo

Yes lets just make everything a free for all otherwise be accused of racism. Yet if I tried to pull this crap down in good ole Mexico, I would be shot.

This is hilarious, Murillo grasping at straws. Since when does she care about the property values of the landlords of the oppressed people she is trying to protect from the gang injunction...seriously?? Am I missing something? Hotchkiss spelled it out: If anything your property values will go up in the injunction zone and as a realtor, he ought to know.
How would that sales pitch go with prospective buyers/renters inside the zone: Well you are inside of a gang injunction zone which means that gang members cannot loiter, gather or pull any other shenanigans around your kids.
Same convo outside the zone: Well I am sorry, but you are just outside the gang injunction zone, so gang members can party at will. Gosh I hope your kids will be ok!

Yes and I am the victim of a sober dumba$$ driver. I get to feel the pain everyday. People will make driving mistakes either way. Is it really that DG will only take a case if someone is accused of being under the influence? I doubt it. I am not going to go on about DUI defense industry because until there is a 0 tolerance blanket law, guys like DG will have a job. Even then they probably would! (It was his cologne or her perfume!)
It is their job to point our crappy police work, shady DA moves and judges being morons. This is to protect us from a LE/judicial system going ary.
As pointed out by RHS, when a lawyer is pigeonholed for not sticking with the good old boys club plan, even if this is blatantly out of whack with some of our founding principles, this should be a huge red flag regardless of if you like his personality, or what side of the PC fence you are on with DUI punishment levels.
I think the guy should get an award, not be "slammed".
On ‘Willful Disobedience’ Penalties Sought for DUI Lawyer

The State bar? What a bunch of self serving hacks. If this isn't an example of the good old boys trying to keep someone in line, I don't know what is. I think the COPS, the DA, and maybe even the Judges in this one got it wrong and they NEED a good talking too or sanction. I hope he appeals and wins. He should be on the state bar not the rest of these hacks. This wreaks of conflict of interest. I think JohnLocke said it best.

Cure all? Who wants a cure all? I am tired of the plight to rehabilitate these thugs. They obviously aren't interested either. I want it handled and them out of here. Or at least on a big time out! I want it handled by LE before some random bystanders, or KIDS get hurt. The irony is you would think most people, including those in these hoods, whose children will be affected by these individuals would feel the same. I am almost starting to think the debate over this GI (not Gastro Intestinal) is a moot point as these dream teamers are going to keep it up until SB has no choice.

Starts at the home? The problem is most of these homies parents didn't give a @#$& about parenting but more so about their culture and their pride. Their Brown pride. Great. Good for all of you. Take all that pride, whatever type or color, down to the next city council meeting and try to bully them into NOT voting for the gang injunction. Lame. I note that everyone is so concerned about having their civil rights infringed upon. Isn't that the whole point that when you break the law repeatedly, your have privileges, rights taken off the table till you learn how to behave yourself? Yeah, it starts at the home alright, but not the HOMIE!
