Mon Oct 22 2012 Take Back Santa Cruz: Vigilantism, Paranoia, and Lies
Stop Pamela Comstock, Take Back Santa Cruz, for City Council Surf City Locals write: "Pamela Comstock is one of the only candidates to not accept voluntary campaign spending limits. She has raised more money than anyone in this city council race. Her money has paid for nice-looking glossy fliers, but they only tell half the story.

"Pamela Comstock is one of the founding members of Take Back Santa Cruz, a group that claims to advocate for public safety, but what has their role in the community really been? Take Back Santa Cruz has spread vicious lies about people with whom they disagree. Their lies have stirred up vigilantism and mob-mentality, and they have refused to work with anyone who has a difference of opinion.

"Take Back Santa Cruz has made their mission clear: to get rid of people they consider undesirable. They want wealthy property owners to 'take back' the town from folks who are somehow less deserving. When they first started, the ugly rhetoric on their Facebook page made this idea clear. Comments like 'we need to drive the undesirables out of town' and 'we should go downtown and start hitting all the undesirables with sticks' were prominent on their wall."
