Somebody get out the big butterfly net. There’s an unusual specimen flying about that needs to be collected and studied.

Amazed how they made bail. I mean, being a dirty "urban traveler" is the very definition of "flight risk!" Then again, being out on the streets they should be easy to find. Why no mug shots? Violent transients like them should be made known to the public so we can avoid them.

I heard back in the good old days the cops would give drifters a free ride to county line telling them they weren't welcome and best not to return.

It's a reference to the 1982 film "First Blood". At the beginning of the film, Vietnam vet John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is trying to find an old friend and is mistaken as a drifter by cruel, small town Sheriff Teasle (Brian Dennehy). Teasle drives Rambo to the edge of town and strongly encourages him to move on the the next town and not return. This movie is a classic and fueled an obsession with survival knives for me and all my friends...the bigger the better. Memories.

If your talking about the same Rambo I think you are the one who used to live on the streets on the East Side he passed away a few years back, rest in peace he was a good man.

They did that to me they'd take me to Winchester Canyon say "They are picking apples in Washington, go there." They would dump me out there. I'd cross over the highway to the Southbound lanes and beat them back to town hitchin...

Give up on posting their FB pages, or trying to look at them. I've never been a FB member, but I've looked at pages, and theirs were shut down hours ago! Of COURSE they have smart phons. Jerks!

I'm sure you're right. But as a never-FB'er, this is not the message I usually get when I try to look at a page: "This page isn't available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed." Thanks for the input.

I was able to find pictures of these individuals online. They're not mugshots but pictures from they're social media. Is it ok to link they're profiles on here? It's 110% them so I'm not linking the wrong people.

Thanks. North Carolina, right? I had to google the newspaper! What. a. Jerk. Yeah, I'm liberal. Yeah, some people need hitting, at least metaphorically. Hey, I don't want to be arrested!

I wish someone could post the current photos of these two punks so we could keep an eye out. Today as I was coming across Micheltorena and De La Vina there were two twenty somethings (male and female) with their backpacks hanging out on the sidewalk sitting against a building. I've seen these two before hanging out in the parking lot at Ralph's on Chapala. I almost called it in. I wonder if it's the same two that assaulted the couple? I am so fed up with what has happened to our beautiful town. Our City Council has had their head in the sand for too many years. This is why my husband and I no longer go down town. We are this " " close to selling our home and moving out of Santa Barbara, and California. We were both born and raised in this town, and in our sixties. I feel sorry for our law enforcement having to deal with vagrants constantly! The entire State is falling apart. So sad.

Gonna post these profiles so people can identify them their safety. Look through the pictures and they look like real outstanding citizens and productive members of society.

Transients Assault Family on State Street

Noozhawk "The couple, both in their early 70s and from Oxnard, were walking northbound on State Street with their 13-year-old grandson when they encountered a longtime local homeless man who was collecting cans from the trash receptacles, Wagner said. Some sort of conflict occurred between the homeless man and the teen, Wagner said, and a shouting match then ensued between the man and the grandfather.
Moments later, as the couple and teen continued on their way, a 23-year-old woman who was not involved in the original dispute attacked the couple, Wagner said. The woman — described by Wagner as an “urban traveler” who had arrived in town the previous day — punched the couple, who sustained minor injuries, although neither required hospital treatment.

CHIP - they (Noozhawk especially) uses the term "urban travelers" to reference those gutter punk kids you see with all the piercings, backpacks, dogs, drums, etc, as opposed to the mentally ill or involuntarily homeless people. The kids are a scourge. They serve no purpose and are only causing trouble. The other "categories" of homeless need the help, not these kids. They need jobs or a one way ticket out of our town!

"Urban Traveler." That's rich! I'm surprised they didn't identify her as a "boxing enthusiast" since she punched the couple. I don't understand this mentality of denial. If we are going to have any hope of solving this problem, we are going to have to start by identifying it. These people are not "travelers," they are not "homeless" because they can't afford the increasing cost of living in the area, and they are not "transients." The denial must end, these people are primarily drug addicts.

...ask the D.A. why they were released. Ask the D.A. why shoplifters are released. Ask the D.A. why vagrants get away with pooping in the streets ( someone with a job and means would go through the court system and be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law- NOT vagrants)

Looks like they were released today too. This is despicable. These "urban travelers" aka lazy, useless gutter punks, are the main problem downtown. These are usually the "aggressive" panhandlers and drug users. They are mostly "homeless" by choice, choosing to live off of others and enjoy the handouts. Get rid of them!

City council suckers in for another "10 year plan to end homelessness", claiming this time they will be more forceful cramming down solutions into NIMBY neighborhoods who oppose them. From the Independent: "(Latest 'homeless czar) Shaffer and his colleagues got a warm reception from the mayor and council members. Councilmember Michael Jordan joked that Shaffer’s presentation sounded like “the fourth 10-year plan I’ve heard in the last 30 years.” More seriously, he said City Hall could have done a much better job inserting itself to reduce some of the neighborhood backlash that erupted in response to previous housing proposals. “Sometimes, we’re our own worst enemy,” he said.

To get the change we need, at some point the city employee unions need to understand destroying our tax base and reducing their share of property tax dollars due to their reckless disregard of the vagrancy assaults, matters to them too. Declining income streams due to declining quality of life, due to city hall chronically bungling means no more money for themselves, the city employee unions. Maybe then, the city employee unions will start supporting the do-something candidates, instead of keeping this revolving door of do-nothing candidates in decision making positions. Same goes for local schools, at some point school board voters need to understand teacher union backed candidates do not support education, for even their own children. Keep employee unions at arms length and only on one side of the bargaining table. Right now city employee unions figured out how to sit on both sides of the bargaining table, and carve up the tax dollars solely for themselves. That is the Democrat's dirty little secret and they hope you never figure this out. Too late, we know now why the system has failed us so badly for so long yet city employees make out like bandits, for life.

Stare down ACLU and don't blink this time, like the city did the last time. Is our city attorney, Ariel Cojones - up to the task ?

A lot of people seem to think there is no way to take drug addicts and mentally ill people into custody. Despite the multitude of hazards this population presents to themselves and the public, many argue that we cannot arrest them until they act out in a destructive manner. I see some merit in this reasoning. How can we arrest someone because we believe they are at risk of causing harm when they haven't actually caused any harm yet? I see a parallel here to drunk driving. Most drunk drivers never cause any harm. However, we arrest drunk drivers because we believe they present an unacceptable risk to themselves and to others. If we can take drunk driver's into custody to protect the public, then we can certainly take all the drug addicts and mentally ill into custody using the same rationale. It's better for them, and better for everyone else. Continuing to leave these pour souls suffering on the streets is inhumane, destructive to our economy and way of life, and a danger to the public.

CHIP OF SB - Being mentally ill or a drug addict is in no way the same as drunk driving. One is illegal, the others are not. They arrest and take into custody drunk drivers because they are violating a law against driving under the influence. There is no law against being mentally ill, nor is there any law against being a drug addict. Yes, it is illegal to be under the influence or using certain drugs, but being an addict is not illegal by itself. As for mentally ill people, well there's certainly no law prohibiting them from being in public. Kind of nuts I have to even explain this....
