Knife Assault on State Street

These lower State Street blocks seem to be more gangs, than vagrants. Upper State Street is the vagrant crime hot spot. Pick your poison. Not sure why SBPD allows these two crime hot spots to fester, since the show up repeatedly in published crime report maps. Maybe instead of Broken Windows crime theory that any crime is bad anywhere, they subscribe to Whack-a- Mole crime theory - let it fester in the same spots to keep it from spreading out elsewhere.

State Street is the turf war dividing line between the lower east side and the lower westside. No, they do not permanently hang out. They rumble across looking for trouble and revenge from time to time. Those blocks are gang war no man's land.

Ortega Street pedestrian bridge over Highway 101 enters the 500- 600 blocks of State Street and acts as the linking corridor between the lower east and lower westside gangs. Be aware. Read their gang sign graffiti. These lower State Street blocks have long been unsavory.

Night and Day so you are on State street Day and Night on State street and you have NEVER seen any gangs? So basically you are on State street 24 hours a day and night and you NEVER see any gangs?

@728 way to go with the fear mongering. i challenge you and the rest of these posters about gangs on state. prove it. you're simply wrong. i LIVE DOWNTOWN 2 blocks from this area and am there nightly and daily with my kids. been here since 1982. seen ONE gang fight and ONE SMALL gang of 5 guys from out of the city. SB gangs are SB gangs and stick to the deeper westside and eastside and goleta. not state. this is just ridiculous fear mongering

Roger, it's a bit ridiculous to explain simple things.
No i'm not there 24 hours a day. Stupid question. Yes I am there every day as it's in my own neighborhood. I assure you i'm there more than you or these other fear mongers are. When i say i'm two blocks from this location, I am 2 blocks away. I'm active. So are my kids. We are DOWNTOWN A LOT. ok? and yes there are no gangs hanging out downtown. that's dumb too. seriously...go downtown yourself if you're able to leave your computer for 5 minutes.

Two SBPD black and whites were parked on Cabrillo last night, apparently to offer assurance to the tourists off the cruise ship. Maybe they would be better deployed to cruise State and Cabrillo and neighboring streets.

i can't handle reading these purely idiotic posts from a bunch of know it all arm chair warriors. the fact that you all challenge reason and common sense stuns me. carry on and continue to think there are big bad gangs downtown. all good in the hood. if that keeps idiots away from downtown, awesome. stay away. seriously...over edhat and it's fear mongering wanna be news reporters.

Oh I see you have a resentment so you feel the need to put everyone down. I guess you pay for that right it doesn't bother me any because I think most of what you say is B.S. Anyway...Don't read it if it bothers you so much I would not want to be the cause of anyone having to go to therapy...
