law enforcement shut down the beach access for Isla Vista

because of *rumors* of a big beach party.

pardon me, but IV is part of america. unfortunately it isnt its own city,

thus it has to bow to the whims of the county of Santa Barbara

who feel the need to do things to 93117 theyd never do to 93101.

im sorry but arent you innocent til proven guilty?

thus shouldnt you be able to party first and only get arrested/hassled after you break laws?

one of these days IV will be its own city and the young adults will be free to live

just like the old adults are allowed to live a few miles away.

until then things like todays c-blocked Floatopia will continue to make me cringe
