SLO to issue back-to-school fines to rowdy students

September 12, 2014

policeAs Cal Poly students return to campus, San Luis Obispo police will be patrolling neighborhoods looking for candidates for hefty fines.

Beginning Sunday at midnight and continuing over a two-week span, fines will double for violations of the San Luis Obispo Municipal Code that occur commonly around the start of the Cal Poly fall quarter. The particular code violations include carrying open containers, noise violations, unruly gatherings, public urination and hosting gathering that involve underage drinking.

Fines also double for carrying a deadly and dangerous weapon during the two-week stretch.

Fall classes begin at Cal Poly on Sept. 22. Class is preceded by Week of Welcome, which begins Monday.

In August 2013, the San Luis Obispo City Council adopted the Safety Enhancement Zone Ordinance, which allows fines to double during times of year that traditionally generate the most partying. In addition to the beginning of the fall quarter, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day and Mardi Gras are also safety enhancement times.

    The fools who run the city always seem to forget who really butters their bread. Go worry about your wonderful dirty cop Cory Pierce getting the “drop the soap” treatment in prison before you get all exited about stuffing your coffers to pay for a worthless city manager making 300k+ a year.

    Our Hebrew God’s word of our Christian faith commanded that our offspring, other than killing them if they curse their parents (Matthew 15: 3-4), should be beaten if they get out of line. This beating should be in addition to any fines that San Luis Obispo Police may impose upon them. Let all Christian parents of their arrested kids make a special trip before or after the court proceedings to follow through with God’s direct commands forthwith;

    “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.” (Proverbs.13:24)

    “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.” (Proverbs.22:15)

    “Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.” (Proverbs.23:13-14)

    “The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.” (Proverbs.30:17 )

    On a side note, we can only assume that the NFL player, Adrian Peterson, who beat his little boy with a switch off a tree, and hit him in other ways as well, will use the above godly edicts in his soon to be defense. Let’s just hope that he is a Christian to be able to show the court that he was correct in beating his son, and if not, become a Christian post haste as many do in situations like this!

    Being a Christian Nation, what judge and jury would argue with the Hebrew God’s direct words shown above? Besides, won’t Adrian Peterson have to place his hand upon the same bible that will save his ass in the first place? Case closed.

      Ted,

      Adrian Peterson has been regarded as a devout Christian since before he became a professional football player. I don’t know whether he qualifies as a “true Christian” by your criteria. It will be interesting indeed whether he uses the Biblical quotes that you offer as a defense.

        .

        OTOH,

        Its not that I can qualify anyone to be a “True Christian,” it is the direct words of the Hebrew God that performs this very important act, in that true Christians will understand the teachings and the way of life in the Scriptures and will strive to live by them!

        I am sure Adrian Peterson is thumbing his bible as we speak for a “get out of jail card” supported by the scriptures. If he only read CCN, I would have saved him so much time and effort.

        Anyway, to vouchsafe beating your offspring, we have these follow up passages ; to wit: “And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” (Luke 4:4 KJV) “Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.“ (Proverbs 30:5)

        Within the two godly inspired passages above, it is directly stated with absolutely no wiggle room, hermeneutics, or the insidious Satanic act of apologetics, that EVERY WORD of our Hebrew God Yahweh is to be followed and is flawless relative to beating our “begats.”

        Another side bar; if you’re a true Christian, and the police come knocking on your door because your unruly offspring is in the ER because you followed God’s words in beating them, then you play the “religious card” again and give them this following passage, to wit: But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29) What judge and jury can argue with this godly edict as you place your hand on the bible to swear in?!

        If we TRUE Christians claim that this is a Christian nation, then not to be hypocritical, then we’re to follow the bible in it’s entirety as Yahweh so states, period!

    Some of you posting here are complaining of noise of people, noise of bars, noise of trash trucks outside quiet hours. You are entitled to have noise laws enforced, to be secure inside your homes, streets and parks, but it won’t happen. You are wasting your breath and keystrokes. Here is why:

    The article mentions noise violations, unruly gatherings. You need to realize that this city POLICY is for money and publicity, NOT truly enforcing or policing the laws.

    For example, It is the OFFICIAL position of the SLO police department, in an un-retracted memo to the council from the last police chief, that vicious modified motorcycle noise is too “complex” for SLO PD and she said that other agencies also do nothing, so the chief said SHE would do nothing.

    Most PD’s are disgraceful and unprofessional, SLOPD included, in picking and choosing WHAT they will enforce, and when. If the incident doesn’t interest them, or they ride a loud bike themselves, the hell with the needs of the public and people’s grandbabies trying to sleep in their homes.

    Get used to it. You will never change city hall. Bikes come from the factory at the same noise level as a Toyota Camry (title 40, CFR), EVERY pipe louder is illegal and is a miscreant flipping you the bird with a middle finger saying “nobody cites this noise”. Ditto for the irresponsible cops, right to the top chief level. It’s crap work, and I’m TIRED of complaining about it. They’ll get their paychecks and pensions, you get crap enforcement. Carousing adults or thug bikers, NOBODY in city government/police cares about your quality of life, or the proven health DAMAGE of disrupted sleep.

    My read on this, is simply City Administration is more concerned about deflecting the spot light on the public and in this case young kids who are still learning the ropes of life rather than dealing with the rampant misconduct and theft of public assets within their own file and ranks. Just go by Kennedy Fitness, other local gyms and the City pool every day. You will catch City employees working out, swimming riding their semi-pro bicycle during working hours and not just a one hour stent. These characters show up at 8:00 or 8:30, make their breakfast on City time, eat their breakfast, socialize for a while, than go to work. Next thing you know it is break time and time to make those consulting calls on City time, go for a walk, catch a movie all on City time. Then it is time to change clothes on City time, drive the City vehicle over to the gym, work out and socialize for up to 2 hours a day, then meander back to work. Oh, now it is time for a late lunch. Start paying attention to what these devoted public servants do all day!

      Don’t know what the current situation is, aside transgressions reported by CCN, but back in the day, before cell phones, you got ahold of the boyz in wastewater services by calling Mayor Dunin’s Budget Cafe any time between 9 and 11am.

      It is apparently a slow news day and CCN needs those clicks to keep advertisers happy. While they do some great reporting sometimes, those times aren’t enough to keep people coming to the site so they sometimes resort to less honorable tactics like exaggerated headlines, inflammatory and biased reporting, etc.
