  1. It is mind blowing to me that those homes along the cliff do not have fencing requirements! This boy was 18 they think, so young. Fencing, and maybe suicide netting below, of that’s even possible, should be legally required. I was on a boat ride recently that went past IV and it is shocking to see homes with balconies on those cliffs. I don’t understand why the city hasn’t condemned them!

  2. UCSB needs to include a Cliff Safety Class at Freshmem and Transfer orientations.
    And have professors end Friday class with a safety briefing. Same as is done for the Kern River Swimmers.
    And post more signs in front of Apts and Businesses.
    Plus add nets like done at suicide bridges.
    With a cross to mark the old locations.
    Or maybe it was a snipe hunt gone haywire?
