Police call Monday's stabbing of downtown Santa Cruz business owner 'unprovoked and random' ^ | 05/10/2012 | Stephen Baxter, J.M. Brown and Cathy Kelly - Santa Cruz Sentinel

Friends of downtown business owner Shannon Kathleen Collins mourned her loss Tuesday after police identified her as the victim of Monday's "unprovoked, random" stabbing.

Longtime friend Timerie Gordon said those who knew Collins were "very angry and sad and trying to make sense of something that will never be sensible."

Collins, 38, co-owner of Camouflage on Pacific Avenue, was walking back from a hairdresser's appointment when police say she was "savagely" attacked about 11:50 a.m. on the 300 block of Broadway.

Minutes later, after a number of calls to 911, police arrested 43-year-old Charles Anthony Edwards III of San Francisco on suspicion of murder. Authorities declined to say how the encounter started and what led to her vicious slaying.

"She didn't know him and was not involved with him in any way," Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark said. "It was just the misfortune of fate that she crossed paths with him."

I & II are his brothers, that’s how his mom could call them individually.

Search for “The Color of Crime” report. Most racist crime is black on white.

She needed a CHL.

That is probably exactly what she needed, but this is Santa Cruz, Kommiefornia, so forget about it.

Instead, she is supposed to be protected by unicorns and Hopey-Changey. But if things get really dicey, she should call 911 and then either beg for help or trade sex for time until the cops get off their donut breaks and show up.

Then she just better hope she won't be cited for a racial crime or racial profiling.

Last time I was in downtown Santa Cruz, it was full of homeless and druggy types

It's been that way at least since I was doing my UCSC homework at the Cooper House in 1974

Hmmm....looks like .44 magnum would be the right load.

Note that Zach Friend, the spokesman for the Santa Cruz city police department in this article, is running for county supervisor in the 2nd district.

I don’t believe an employee of the government, speaker for the police department can represent citizens. The fact that he has endorsements from the down town commies like the Coonertys, Fred Keely, Luis Alejo and Sam Farr— all government, show he doesn’t have the support of the common citizen.

All the entrenched corrupt politicians in this county are endorsing him, which makes me very curious about the agenda they know he will support.

Downtown Santa Cruz has always been teeming with weirdo’s.

you know, last week a black man jumped out of the bushes and stabbed to death a white lady for no apparent reason....she gave a description of the guy before she died.....

we're under attack....maybe some of them are just mentally crazy, but somehow they've been given the green light...
