Grover Beach police credit a citizen’s tip with kicking off the narcotics investigation.


we just passed prop 47? The war on drugs is a loser. Our incarceration rates and cost for incarcerating has soared since the 1970s. Time to find something else for LEO’s to do.


Getting clean in jail.


That haircut alone should land him behind bars.


C’mon, man! He’s not conforming to the system! He’s a rebel: Down with The Man! All he needs is to start losing more hair up top, go totally gray, put it all in a pony tail, get a single ear piercing, a law degree and he’d fit right into downtown SLO!


This is what one finds in most bars in Confederate-land.

Surprising that he’s not the star of some reality TV show.
