Do you want to know the sad truth? I am 100 times more afraid of illegal acts against me by Judges, D.A.'s, Cops and Sheriffs than I am of "Gang Activity" and harm I might face.
Go to the link below and listen to KEYT’s video report as the broke the story live on T.V. KEYT did more than that though. They went back to Goleta beach the next day and interviewed the public to see if they felt unsafe. Most did not know anything even happen, a mature woman called it an ‘Isolated” incident which is all it amounts to when you consider that over 1 million people a year visit that beach.
I feel there might be one more contributing factor as to why the public feels safe and would hate to over look it. The Santa Barbara County Sheriffs do an excellent job but please don’t let the media or politicians fool you. The public has spoken and they are not buying into the “Gang” media campaign that Santa Barbara County keeps putting out. Not only did the public at the beach, but those that voted for our last D.A. they too did not buy Josh Lynn’s account either. For that matter the Santa Barbara Boys & Girls Club director that I spoke with yesterday in no way was he for the Gang injunction by the City of Santa Barbara or did he like how our youth are being treated. So I have to ask just who is claiming that the 1% of our city crime committed by labeled Gang Members is a crisis certainly not the community of Santa Barbara!
Part two today will deal with the Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors and the alleged unfunded future pension liability.
