Big Santa Barbara drug bust! Does crime pay? You look at the house and tell me!
Wow a big meth bust in Santa Barbara recently and the Santa Barbara news press missed reporting on one of the story’s. Of the 2 meth bust that occurred I am interested in The second Meth bust that took place at 2078 Las Canoas 93105 home of William Paxson. If you review different stories from various news services names, photos and ages never match in regards to the bust and arrest information. Something like D.A. donations made by Mr. Erik Bjorkland opps that’s really Bjorklund to Mr. Josh Lynn’s campaign fund. There old motorcycle riding buddies and there’s nothing wrong with that.
The information below was taken from Sheriff’s web page in regards to the drug bust and is in the middle of posting.
“William Paxson – 11550(a) H&S – Under the influence of a controlled substance, 11364 H&S – Possession of drug paraphernalia, 11366 H&S – Maintaining a dwelling for drug use/sales. Bail was set at $2,500.”
Really 2500 bail, wow Santa Barbara District Attorneys are really going after the white over 60, living in 2 Million dollar home “Gangsters’ that’s O.G. baby! During my harassment and 5 different illegal arrests I had bail any where from 20,000 to 100,000 for words I never said. Worse than that there is a current rumor that law enforcement caught one of there own in these arrest, can that be true? Take a look at the house yourself!
Below is some more information in regards to the drug bust, I will follow that with some words to the Santa Barbara Sheriff and Police department.

BACK TO MY THOUGHTS;
I have recently read two separate stories about local law enforcement and the budget woes of this county. Before I do that I wish to offer my sincere condolences and prayers to the McGrew Family on the lose of there son.
In the Sheriff news story a new contract was worked out and about 4 million dollars saved to the County Tax Payers. Although all tax payers deserve a break law enforcement cannot be lied to or taken advantage of as I feel the have in regards to Budgets and pension fraud. The sheriffs union recently removed Greg Wilkins supervising D.A. investigator as one there union representatives and I for one am not surprised. You see while in hopes of getting a investigation open in regards to my 2.5 month stay in jail with no grounds I met Mr. Wilkins. He called for a meeting with my probation officer and I. He sat across from me and flat out lied that a investigation into Greg Boller and his actions against me had been completed and no grounds were found about my concerns. There was also no report allowed for my review(it never was done). To bad I did not have my F.B.I. file and rap sheet to prove him a liar and criminal, there I go venting again. My point is this guys in Law Enforcement how does it feel to be me? We all have families and homes and to be more like me all you have to do is give up your home now and get nothing in return. Now every law enforcement person that has come across my path is well aware how I value there service to our community. Having said that guys if he lied to me why would he not continue on that path? An by the way tie an independent audit to your new contract like the Santa Barbara police department did with there new contract, back pay and raise’s will follow if you do, Good Luck.
As for the Santa Barbara Police and officer McGrew, Mr. McGrew you were involved in my first illegal arrest and I both you and I know that. Regardless of that fact we need a strong reliable and ethical police department and I wish you all the success in obtaining your funding needs. Let me give you some where to look in regards to discrepancies in the Santa Barbara city budget problems. Simply review any budget and look at funds from county property taxes. I might mention by doing this and there is a discrepancy found you also be help your brothers the sheriffs! What you do is review the math in the airport bond @
than review that math against a city budget of matching years and you will find funding statements that reflect anywhere between 24 to 41 million dollars funding for the same time period attributed to county tax payer funds. Depending on the page or description or break down 24 to 41 million is the figures I see, so is it 24 or 41 million and when you find it can you keep it?. To be honest just review any city budget page verses page compare the airport bond and you will find the missing funds you seek. Sorry to say but if city administrator will James Armstrong will commit a crime to cover up for police chief Cam Sanchez, are you surprised he cut your funding. You ca also go to the SEC municipal bond market and pull bond documentation and budget reports.
All laws matter and we need to start brand new and get our community back in order. Now please don’t think I am not currently reviewing the Attorney Generals manual regarding the wire worn in the current murder trial and here is why.
I agree crimes committed by our youth must be punished in the court of law according to the law. However that does not relieve our Santa Barbara District Attorney’s office from having to answer to and uphold the California constitution. In the Hollywood case there was a crime Mr. Hollywood should answer to but Mr. Lynn did not prove his case. O.K. what about someone like me he who did nothing? 7 strike-able false charges, did I lose my rights as an American at that point, hell no! Just because you call someone a defendant does not make it accurate and one cannot assume the facts are true and the courts need to regroup and recognize that. Being called a defendant does not relive any one or office of there oath and obligation to our society!
