    Is she from Santa Maria? Many Santa Maria residents have a biased, prejudiced view of SLO, and they think SLO deserves more crime because it’s not fair that SLO has low crime and other cities have alot more crime. I live in Santa Maria and I hear comments like this all the time.

    Where’s she from and please do a follow up report!
