An Open Letter in Defense of Deltopia (riot at Santa Barbara college,UCSB)
The Daily Nexus ^ | 4-3-14 | Anonymous

Posted on 04/06/2014 2:12:09 PM PDT by dynachrome

I assure you, the urge to rage will long outlast the budget of Santa Barbara to keep sending in large numbers of police. It should be noted that 85 percent of complaints received about noise, music and disturbing the peace are called in by law enforcement themselves, in order to “justify” the dissolution of social gatherings in Isla Vista.

They treat the UC students as if they didn’t have to work hard to get here, and they treat the CC students like they’ll never amount to anything of substance. Contrarily, SBCC and UCSB are beacons of the educational process in their own respects. We work very hard and deserve the freedom to relieve stress in a celebratory manner with likeminded individuals. COME ON I.V.! We pay tens of thousands of dollars to sit in overcrowded classrooms, pay overpriced rent, get harassed by law enforcement and have the various administrations and authoritative bodies bully and patronize us. Do not let this community turn into a police state. They can do only to us what we let them do.The young adults that live in Isla Vista do not wish to be governed in a way that lightly channels neo-fascism. We have some of the brightest minds in the country within our zip code, why not try to work with us rather than against us? After the burning down of Embarcadero Hall (formerly known as Bank of America), thousands of incidents of police brutality and the tensions between residents and enforcers, you should welcome the idea. Holding open office hours (IVPD) only works for people who have an ideology that is in line with that of the policing authority in I.V. Dissenters have been arrested, brutally beaten and even slaughtered (R.I.P. Kevin Moran).

This letter by a student reads like a satire.

Satire or not it was written by a liberal because the word fascism appeared in that piece and we all know how lefties love calling their enemies fascists.

Anyone who does not yet get "the age of entitlement," just digest the first few lines of this infantile screech.

I saw that comment - and got a chuckle out of it!

I am pleading with you, as the author of this letter, to not underestimate the efficacy and resolve of the 20-30 thousand students residing in Isla Vista.

The efficacy and resolve to goof off? Man, I wish I had it that bad ;')

“We work very hard and deserve the freedom to relieve stress in a celebratory manner with like-minded individuals.”

Translation:

Skool iz HARD!
Party HARD!

If you don’t like it we will bring out thousands of “like-minded individuals” to “celebrate”!

/s

These idiots should have spent a few years working in industry or in the military before getting mommie & daddy to pay “...tens of thousands of dollars to sit in overcrowded classrooms, pay overpriced rent...” It might have given them enough time & motivation to grow up.

Frankly, they need to keep police out, fence the party goers in and let them kill each other. I guess the “anonymous” letter writer will complain about that.

People who want to go to college to study “liberal arts” should be required too work and support themselves only by their own labor for five years first.

Probably explains why UCSB has a reputation as one of the top party schools in the country.

You pay, yeah, right. Everyone else pays for your stupid asses to be in class a few hours a day instead of your going to work. Meanwhile, you miserable larvae voted for Obama. You wanted a police state, I didn't, you live in the bastard.

in the defense of preserving a social scene that has evolved over the years...and what we are entitled to.

paying tuition entitles you to attend college. That's it. It doesn't buy you the town, too. Sorry.

Sounds about right.
