Not much information released up to this date due to this shooting being investigated but I have a couple questions. Is any agency outside the PD investigating? Will the officer(s) involved be required to meet with a psychologist/counselor to discuss this incident in an attempt to determine if the officer(s) are ready to return to duty?

I heard the last time this store was hit a couple suspects entered, tried to rob and were carried out by the coroner.

There are probably other "stashes" of weapons at other locations cops have yet to learn about. But, whether there are one or a dozen guns confiscated during this latest search makes little difference. One gun in the hands of any one of these bean 'fartin idiots makes them "well armed."
Ever wonder why a very low percentage of these "boys" enlist in the military? I suspect few enlist because they don't have the intelligence to pass the enlistment examination and know they couldn't handle the discipline required in the military.

Foo - Agreed. The only thing Obama is truly capable of is deception, a well documented liar with absolutely no credibility.
I will have the most transparent administration. I have Shovel ready jobs. The IRS is not targeting anyone. It was about a movie. If I had a son. I will put an end to the type of politics that “breeds division, conflict and cynicism". You didn't build that. I will restore trust in Government. The cops acted stupidly. I am not after your guns. The Public Will Have 5 Days To Look At Every Bill That Lands On My Desk. It's not my red line it is the world’s red line. Whistle blowers will be protected. “We got back Every Dime we Used to Rescue the Banks, with interest. I will close Gitmo. I am not spying on American citizens. ObamaCare will be good for America. You can keep your family doctor. Premiums will be lowered by $2500. You can keep your current healthcare plan.

Would you consider the following quote from Obama an oxymoron?
"I, Barrack Hussain Obama pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America."

"The end of a beginning."
Catchy little phrase, but, while I applaud the efforts of the PD in their attempt to curtail the increase in gang violence, this effort will unfortunately not be ending anything (other than this investigation). Just like the "war on drugs" is not stopping importation, use or sale of illegal drugs this investigation will simply slow down gang activity. I believe history has proven gang activity simply might be minimized for a period of time but it will not be eliminated. Too many idiots with too much idle time on their hands and nothing to do but get involved with gangs.
Sanchez needs to keep applying for other departments if he is surprised that generations of family members are involved in these criminal activities. Were there not generations of some Santa Barbara families in the 60's and 70's involved in drug activities in Santa Barbara? The "Mexican Mafia" and the "Nuestra Familia" have been in the Santa Barbara area for many years. One of the former field (outside the prison) generals for the "Mexican Mafia" resided in the 200 block W. Haley Street in the 70's. I was very surprised to read "It’s not clear if La Eme has been here all along." What have the gang/intelligence officers at the PD been doing if they do not have an idea how long this or any other any gang has been in town?
While I'd like to be optimistic about law enforcement efforts in their "war on drugs" and attempts to eliminate gang activity I believe the best that can be done is to slow down each activity. Again, too many idiots eager to get involved in one or both criminal activities.

On City Council Donations Flying In
Posted on October 28 at 10 p.m.
If a person wants to buy any drug, including heroin, I agree they will find a worm (like Leong) to secure their drug of choice. Leong is not "forcing" anyone to buy the heroin he sells. Leong is simply selling his heroin to a person that will become addicted, remain addicted and require more and more of the illegal drug Leong provides to establish and maintain their "high." An addict is almost always a non-productive member of society that becomes dependent on some form of government financial assistance to survive.
You are wrong if you believe the arrest of Leong or any other "street dealer," for the most part, will have an impact on the price of heroin on the street. The price of heroin is almost always determined by a (major) shortage of this narcotic for any number of reasons, i.e., problems in the fields, production, (major) seizures, etc. You are also wrong if you believe what you refer to as the "black market" has anything to do with a person using "harder, more dangerous substances." What generally drives most people to use stronger legal and illegal substances is the fact that they can no longer achieve their desired effect, their "high," with whatever drug they are using.
You start furnishing heroin to addicts all you are going to get is an increase in the number of persons addicted to this narcotic. It appears you don't understand the physiological effects of heroin on the body. Over time, the addict will require more and more heroin keep their "high."
In your earlier post (10-25, 12:02) you infer Leong, a heroin dealer, is a "non-violent" person. Do you believe a heroin addict is a violent or a non-violent person?
On Man Arrested For Heroin Sales While Out On Bail
Posted on October 26 at 7:54 a.m.
I suggest you should be "getting pretty sick" of reading about Leong and his freedom that permits involvement in the sales of heroin. How many people is Leong trapping, or "caging" in the world of heroin addiction? Leong was arrested with 1-ounce of heroin in January and one-quarter ounce was confiscated during his current arrest. There were approximately 23 "balloons" of heroin involved in his current arrest destined for 23 or more users/addicts.
A substantial amount of heroin is (again) involved in the arrest of this "AH," he profits at the expense of those addicts he supplies (and others). Do you believe Leong is concerned the addicts to whom he furnishes heroin pay for their addiction while very likely involved in criminal activity that can effect you and every other citizen of our city?
Theft(s), burglary, robbery and assault are just some of the crimes addicts are involved in on a daily basis to obtain money to sustain their addiction. I suspect you know a majority of addicts do not work!
Quit your whining and be thankful there are cops on the street that are removing people like Leong from our city. I would like to see Leong serve a substantial sentence behind bars. Unfortunately, he will be living an easier life in prison than the "junkies" in town he assisted in becoming addicted to heroin.
