Santa Cruz City Council Sets a New Low For Compassion
At this week’s city council meeting, the 2 members who are being accused of bullying and disrespectful behavior towards women working at city hall, along with fake feminist Sandy the Clown Brown and progressive bootlicker Justin Cummings, voted to just sweep their behavior under the virtual rug hoping to make it all go away somehow.
Just a pathetic, reprehensible response from the 4 self proclaimed “progressives” up there. I hope Susie quits and sues the city AND Krohn and Glover personally. She’s too good for the city.
Thank You Cynthia, Donna, Martine, and Susie
Thank you Cynthia Mathews, Donna Meyers, Martine Watkins, and Susie O’Hara. They are all brave, strong women and positive role models for other women. I support them and thank them for their efforts on Tuesday night. Please show your support by visiting this link (more explained there). Thanks!
Deputies Find Catatonic Person Covered in Feces in Aptos
Tuesday morning around 7AM, Santa Cruz Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 4300 block of Opal Cliffs Drive in Aptos for a report of a disoriented subject with injuries. When they arrived, they found the subject was incapable of communication and was covered in feces. Medics responded and the person was transported to Dominican Hospital. They couldn’t determine if the subject was the victim of a crime as the subject remained catatonic. Nothing on the news about it. Were they the victim of a crime? Were they suffering from mental illness or dementia and possibly their family was looking for them? Who knows? We get nothing but crickets from the sheriff’s department and the local news media here.
Brookside Man Arrested for Sexual Assaults
Wednesday night around 10:30PM, a 30 year old man from Brookside was arrested by deputies from the Santa Cruz County sheriff’s department on the 11700 block of Highway 9 on a number of sexual assault charges, including attempted rape of an unconscious victim. Five felonies. I guess this kind of thing isn’t newsworthy since I saw no mention of it anywhere but in the official arrest log. Last check he’s still in jail on a $100K bond.
By The Time They Got to Woodstock’s
Sunday night around 11:30PM, SCPD recognized a 43 year old transient male wanted for robbery in the parking lot of Woodstock Pizza on River street in downtown Santa Cruz. After executing a high risk car stop, they found him in possession of drug paraphernalia, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine for sale. SCPD arrested him for probable cause in a robbery case and the added charges of possession of narcotics with intent to sell.
Vagrant Busted in Laurel Park
Monday night around 11:30PM, a 24 year old transient male from Berkeley was arrested after being found camping near Louden Nelson community center on the 300 block of Center Street. He was also charged with battery and had 2 outstanding bench warrants for his arrest. Last check he’s still in county jail. Berkeley bum now sits in our jail and will soon be out on our streets downtown. Now he’s our problem for the forseeable future.
Monday night around 10:30PM, a person was arrested by Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s deputies on the 1200 block of 17th Avenue for being drunk in public, resisting arrest, battery on a peace officer, and of course….a probation violation. Were they just cited and released?
No Place Like Home
Tuesday morning around 1:30AM, a 53 year old male was arrested by Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s deputies at the County Health Services complex on Emeline Avenue for drug possession and drug paraphernalia. Maybe he was first in line for his free needles the next morning.
The Frequent Flyer of the Week
Last Saturday morning around 7:30AM, SCPD responded to a report of a prowler on the 200 block of Beach Street. When they arrived, they found someone who wanted to make a citizens arrest for prowling and vandalism, so they took it from there and took the 30 year old male suspect to jail. Arrested 14 times since 2016. He’s a frequent flyer on the County Shuffle.
The Runner Up!
Last Friday around 10:30AM, SCPD responded to the 1200 block of Ocean Street where they arrested a 31 year old man on multiple felony charges, including burglary, battery, and domestic violence. Arrested 9 times since 2013. He’s also a frequent flyer on the County Shuffle.
Motorcyclist Dies in Highway 1 Accident
Last Friday night around 8PM, a motorcyclist was killed in an accident on Highway 1 near Soquel Drive, according to CHP reports. One lane of southbound Highway 1 at Soquel Drive was shut down for about an hour while they investigated the cause of the accident.
Angry Man Gets a Timeout at County Jail
Wednesday morning around 3AM, SCPD responded to the 500 block of River street where they arrested a 39 year old male for apparently making credible death threats. Last check he was still in county jail on a $10K bond.
Rollin and Stolen
Tuesday night, SCPD was on patrol when an officer noticed a suspected stolen vehicle in the area of Poplar and Water streets. After confirming it stolen, the driver tried to drive away before SCPD conducted a high-risk traffic stop and took the driver into custody without incident.
SCPD Volunteers Help With Different Kind of Arrest
Wednesday along Pacific Avenue in downtown Santa Cruz, three SCPD volunteers help saved a man’s life after he went into cardiac arrest. The volunteers (Anna, Margie and Zelma) were on patrol when they noticed a man holding his hand over his chest. When they asked him if he was OK, he told them that he was short of breath and had chest pains. They kept him alert and engaged, called 911 for medical support, and kept people from crowding the scene. When Santa Cruz Fire and AMR arrived, the man was in cardiac arrest. Police said the firefighters and paramedics who responded were impressed with the volunteers professional communication skills and adherence to training. Thank you ladies!
