Re: “YouTuber mulls legal action after Morro Bay police chief run-in

There is no obligation in California to identify yourself unless you are arrested for a crime (if you are operating a motor vehicle a different set of standards apply). Concerns for Officer Safety without valid probable cause or RAS do not trump a citizen's right to film in public areas. Handcuffing and IDing someone in those circumstances is actually a violation of law and a potential civil rights violation. Usually these sorts of cases do not get pursued because it is expensive to file suit and hire a lawyer. The public agencies have the advantage of being tax payer funded so unless there is a large hue and cry police often are able to violate the rights of citizens with impunity. We shall see what happens in this case.

A cop should know the law. But a citizen is required by law to identify themselves to officers when asked. So they were both in the wrong. We hold cops to higher standards though.

Re: “YouTuber mulls legal action after Morro Bay police chief run-in

This guy is a scam artist trying to make a living by causing disturbances then playing victim. His purpose is not to "Audit" Government facilities, but to hit a payday by creating a hostile atmosphere. He reminds me of the guy who throws water on the floor at the grocery store and then pretends to fall. Wondering if this is his full-time job. If this fool follows through with going to court I hope the judge fines him for disturbing the peace. There's enough real world problems to deal with, what an asshole. He probably spends the rest of his time and his mother's basement trying to cast spells.

Re: “Three-story hotel proposed in Cayucos denied

Im grateful to the Coastal Commission, but disappointed that our County Planning Department and Board of Supervisors are not willing to protect our communities.

Re: “SLO City Council members donate to Paulding in supes race

With local elections coming up this year, the best thing any of us can do to restore civility, competence and common sense to the Board and provide a good example of leadership to all is to join the Republican/Democratic Coalition in support of Jimmy Paulding for County Supervisor.

Paulding deserves the support of each of the sitting board members: Gibson, Compton, Peschong, Arnold and Hill, each of whom consider Paulding a formidable candidate and the most qualified to run for a SLO County board seat in decades. It's an easy choice for those want improvement in local politics and a stop to dishonest, selfish, behind-the-scenes deal making that harms our community in the long run. The right choice has never been so clear. Paulding deserves his chance to make SLO County a better place to live, love, work and prosper.

Great news! Thank you, CA Coastal Commission!

Re: “SLO City Council members donate to Paulding in supes race

This doesn't math: "The donations total $350, with Christianson and Pease donating $100 each, and Gomez donating $250."

Re: “Rooted beneath: Cuyama Valley's water basin problems put big carrot growers at odds with area residents and small landowners

They need to allow the Southeastern states grow water sucking plants and trees like almonds, citrus, walnut cotton and rice. What the hell were they thinking!

Re: “Supervisors decline to take stance on offshore oil drilling expansion

These Supervisors , 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold or 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton are bought and paid for by the Republican Party, and therefore, are not to be trusted on any issues related to the environment. They would allow oil drilling if the party tells them to do it. We must organize to oust these corrupt and anti-environment politicians who do not care for our country and I would not be surprised if they are also Climate deniers... VOTE THEM OUT.

Re: “Boots on the ground: Maintaining reserve firefighter programs and quality fire service is difficult for some fire departments in SLO County

If they are like SLO city Fire it would be good to alert the readers that they no longer actually go inside buildings that are on fire to fight the fire. Instead the cut holes into the roof far from the seat of the fire and when the roof burns through they use the overhead ladder truck to put the fire out. It would be best to determine if they are a real fire department or a FAKE fire department like SLO before spending all the money

Re: “Supervisors decline to take stance on offshore oil drilling expansion

How can anybody NOT be against off shore oil drilling in California?? And if the Feds ask for local input, why would you NOT tell them that?? Lets NOT keep Lynn Compton around next election.

Re: “One year later: Carbajal reflects on his first year in Congress

How did this guy every get elected, pretty much sums it up that his party continues to hate Trump but has no solutions or suggestions on how to fix the current issues, talk about rhetoric, not sure he even seen the SOTU speech because Trump didn't use a teleprompter. We need to get rid of him.

Re: “Settlement reached in Avila Ranch lawsuit

Wow, well that was a cave-in . That's the best we could do to hinder this atrocious development? Well good luck to you all who live on Buckley and good-bye to us all who live in our wonderful neighborhood. SLO goes the way of California, and sad to say I will have to take my tax dollars away from SLO and California.

Re: “SLO City Council approves 'night hiking' pilot program

Bad call on the part of three members of the City Council: Harmon, Rivoire, Gomez. They are not honoring everything that went into preserving these open spaces and the restrictions that protect the land and wildlife. These three are clearly all about the political ambitions. Shame on them for buckling to the shouts of the selfish.

Re: “SLO city deciding between two Broad Street bike boulevard options

J Michael Robertson

Only if you're a fit strong adult. This isn't about you. If you're younger or older or even a bit slower on a bike, you can't. Especially uphill on Broad.

Re: “Mighty Heidi: Heidi Harmon wants SLO to be a net-zero emissions city. Can it happen?

Another Moonbean disciple with moronic views and wasted funds to upstart another department within the city that will only put out more mandates and regulations to achieve the perpetual dog chasing tale issue. Next step to implement some type of penalty if you drive a combustional vehicle on odd days and if have a business then your hours will be reduced so you can meet the standards required, this is how added agencies are funded with penalty money a new taxes, this solves all problems with progressives. Taking any advice from Bernie Sanders you took the low road, did he win or lose? Bernie Sanders quote, I see a future where getting to work or to school or to the store does not have to cause pollution.
So how do we get from point A to point B, if you live outsdie the city? I guess maybe he really never gave that much thought?
