Anyone know if they caught the guy yet? There hasn't been any updates since it happened.

Ironic isn't? "It's only the other side" needs to stop, but only people on the left are snowflakes. The fact is that everything I've said about the other side has been borne out by their behavior.

When will those voting in Santa Barbara elect Reps who will demand laws and ordinances be enforced? Having a 7-0 like-minded Dem Council eliminates discussion of enforcement. Council is no longer non-partisan. Locals like life how it is in SB or they’d vote in some moderates for law and order, and some Reps who will honor their oaths to uphold the US and CA Constitutions.

We can thank Ronald Reagan for taking the mentally ill and putting them out on the street.

No one should be institutionalized against their own free will...But Ronnie got the ball rolling in the 1960's when he was Calif. Gov. and he did it again as President

The citizens of Santa Barbara do hold government officials accountable, which is why we don't elect corrupt Republicans.

Nobody remembers that or talks about it. It was one of those points in our history where something irrevocably changed for the worse.

Ronald Regan's last year as governor was 1974. How in the world can you blame him?

Oh please, get your facts straight! It was the ACLU that is responsible for this. They ensured that no one could be institutionalized against their will.

Closer to home in time and reality, thank SB County for taking the money for pay raises and pensions rather than use as earmarked to build licensed long term mental health skilled Nursing and assisted residential care facilities. Blame the citizens of Santa Barbara for not holding government officials accountable.

8:32 - OK, then by that logic, you can't get throw a fit about any of the laws signed by Obama. Right? Right.

Reagan was hasty in taking unsound advice to repeal OBRA because his real motive was to cut the federal budget

Reagan only signed the law. It wasn't a unilateral action from a dictator. The ACLU pushed for it and the legislature passed the law and sent it to the governor.

Is this increased violent behavior downtown why the "Amazon" project in the old Saks building appears to have come to a screeching halt? Time for a new police chief that means business.

Time for citizens to demand City Council Reps VOTE to rescind it’s “stand down orders” to allow chief and officers to do their job. Council is under influence/ control of Independently elected DA Dudley who does not prosecute police citations. Hence, Council chose not to push back on DA taking easy route: ‘we told police to simply not enforce.’

Thanks Facto, I was wondering when I would see the 1st criticism of the police chief. People used to criticize Cam constantly, but so far have not said anything about the new one.

Good riddance if Amazon left. I know several of their employees and they treat them all like disposable robots. They probably wanted millions in tax breaks And kickbacks just to grace us with their presence.

Lately there have been a lot of homeless in that area. Not to sound like snob but its hard to park when they are laying on the curb. I would think the city would want to clean this up since they moved the Christmas shop right across the street on DLG in the tents like things. Also there seems to be more people on the streets with mental issues. Tis the season

Stabbing on State Street

Why would that sound snobbish? Your taxdollars paid for that curb, and the street to park in and you have a right to be there, probably more so than the layabouts. NO one has the right to block your ability to park on the public thoroughfare - you or I would be arrested for blocking people by laying down on public property.

This is very upsetting. I was at Starbucks in that location on Sunday. There was a man who a appeared to be Asian or part Asian spitting in a homeless man's face multiple times trying to fight him. He was screaming and cussing. He didn't appear to be homeless but I really don't know . The homeless man kept saying "I don't want to fight you". The instigator kept returning to the scene screaming and threatening and spitting. Clearly they had exchanged words before this. Eventually 911 was called but I don't know if the police showed up. I have been thinking about this homeless man ever since.

Do you have a description of the guy? Type of haircut? Clothes? I've seen an Asian homeless guy around town. He doesn't look homeless, but he is. Could possibly be the same guy.

We're trying hard to find permanent shelter for persons experiencing homelessness that spend time on State Street. See what we're doing at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1944316229006142

Couldn't be one of those gangsters. There are so many other people running around stabbing and shooting each other, it's hard to tell.

LCP-- "95%" of all stabbings and shootings in the Central Coast are gang related? Got a cite for that figure? I'm not ignoring anything, just not jumping the gun and making racist presumptions every single time someone gets shot, stabbed or in a fight around here.

LCP112233 Dec 17, 2019 02:53 PM
Stabbing on State Street

Because 95% of the time it is. Why do you ignore the gang problems we have in this area? It is happening in our streets every single day. I, for one, don't want to get in the cross fire.

sacjon Dec 17, 2019 02:19 PM
Stabbing on State Street

LCP - why do you consistently assume that everyone who shoots or stabs someone else is a "gangster?" Have you never heard of a non-gang related shooting or stabbing? That would be really bizarre if you honestly hadn't. Or, is it just because the perp in this situation was reported as "Hispanic?" Do you just equate all crime in Santa Maria/Lompoc and all crime here in SB done by "Hispanics" as gang-related? It sure as snot sounds like you do. Pretty sad.

It's never a good thing leaving personal belongings behind after committing a crime.

Actually, it's a GOOD thing they leave stuff behind after committing a crime !!!!! easier to catch them

I don't know who the victim is but think they might be in serious condition as firefighters were on board the ambulance as the victim was transported.

What I heard an eyewitness say was that It was apparently unprovoked and that the perp was Hispanic, left up State St on a bike, leaving his jacket behind

Hopefully they find this guy. If not Im sure they could find some DNA on the jacket

Unknown- he was in the AMR ambulance when I got there,, on a midday walk and the witness didn’t know.

Ah..... good ol' State Street! Was the victim a non-homeless? If so, we might get some action toward cleaning up that cesspool. If not, well then.... carry on, business as usual.
