Santa Cruz CA recently put a huge BLACK LIVES MATTER mural in front of City Hall. Not because there’s a large Black population. About one percent + of Santa Cruz County residents are Black.
For all to see, civil disorder abounds across America in many Democrat run cities. There has been a spike in crime across many cities. Nightly news from Portland, Oregon shows rioters carrying signs Black Lives Matter as they burn, loot and throw bricks at the police. Clearly, “protesters” are violent thugs destroying property and hurting and killing people.
It depends on where you live and what’s your ethnicity whether civil disorder is or is not a BIG deal. In a recent Mommouth poll 65% of respondents say “maintaining law and order” is a BIG problem. So — 2 in 3 persons see law and order as a BIG problem.
Here’s the rub: Per the poll, whereas 46% of white non-Republicans see it as a problem more than 60% of non-Republican Blacks and other minorities agree that civil disorder has become a BIG deal.
Santa Cruz CA and nearby enviorns is overwhelmingly white in ethnicity. Nearby Watsonville is predominantly Hispanic. You will not find a Black Lives Matter sign on Main Street in Watsonville, CA.
There are 9 women running in the race for City Council in Santa Cruz, CA. Take time to look at their platforms. The need for more low cost housing is a central theme for many. Best one can tell, the issue of ‘law and order’ and civil disorder is not mentioned by any of the aspiring candidates for City Council in Santa Cruz, CA . What universe do they reside in?
Now’s the time to ask Santa Cruz candidates for City Council about civil disorder across America and their view of how to deal with crime, rioting, in-your-face screaming at police.
Below is what’s on the KSCO web site listed under NEWS concerning the forum:
SC CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES – FORUM
A forum is scheduled to be held tomorrow (via zoom) for the candidates running for Santa Cruz City Council. Its designed to give the candidates a chance to speak about why they decided to run for city council, and what their plans are for economic recovery.

To RSVP, and learn about the program, people can go on-line to: rb.gy/zugssj
Who knows what that list of letters means — Most Zoom meetings have an ID which is in numbers.
So — what does this HUGE BLACK LIVES MATTER sign represent? Is civil disorder a BIG deal for Santa Cruz County voters?
The post-Floyd protests put the progressive urban policing model to an unexpected real world test, which it has failed terribly.
What you see on the TV news are “rioters” literally in the face of Black cops screaming at them and showing NO FEAR of the police.
Democratic politics has been building towards this re-definition of law and order for the last 20 years. Progressive propose “decriminalization” of crime and view crime as a behavioral problem and blame the police function for incarceration rates.
Look at the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force released in July — one month AFTER the protests, looting and urban shootings began in May. You will not find the words “felony”, “homicides” or “gangs”. The Biden-Sanders Unity Task force is about one thing: how to reduce the role of the police.
What does the public see nightly across America? An abrupt spike in urban crime and mob-like political protesters exploiting official restraints on police. We see a raging progressive failure to maintain law and order in many Democrat run cities.
