UCSB Corp makes so much money in DoD contracts and private enterprise no one cares if property owners or people suffer. Think this is the first time a bunch of rich kids volunteer to kill themselves with drugs and nonsense, nope! Darwinism at work here. Being rich doesn’t make you smart, wealth is a lottery. F*ck CA CSU and UCs, so much wasted tax dollars for spoiled rich kids. They benefit no average human being and ruin the towns they inhabit. Calpoly anyone? How much crime and tragedy would be reduced if those silver spoons children weren’t there? Do you see Cuesta College making headlines or SBCC, NOPE. just rich kids causing chaos. Spoiled psychopaths. Awesome parents. Need to gaslight anyone there for being alive and at this event, horrible humans. Soon, the ocean will take deltopia back with sea level rise. Look at those pilings on that bluff….more idiots building houses there, psychopaths.
