Santa Barbara’s Gang Injunction Trial … ah! finally getting to the heart of the matter

Santa Barbara's Gang Injunction Trial ... ah! finally getting to the heart of the matter

As I sat through today’s almost last day of Santa Barbara’s proposed Gang Injunction trial, I was struck by the lack of logical reasoning to support this proposed injunction. It would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic.

I leave you with one quote from Det. Siegel. It was made as he tried to explain how his team systematically decided which “gang activities” warranted being indicated on the proposed injunction zone map:

“If it’s gang related, it’s more than criminal.”

Funny, I thought criminal, was essentially …. well, criminal.

Can it be we’re finally getting to the heart of the matter?
