Sat Sep 14 2013 (Updated 09/23/13)Dylan Greiner Removed as SC Clean Team Admin After Arrest
Sat Sep 14 2013 (Updated 09/23/13)Agenda of Santa Cruz Safety Groups Involved with Accused Surfer Questioned
Dylan Greiner was removed as an administrator of the Santa Cruz Clean Team's Facebook group shortly after he was arrested for victimizing young female students through his surf school. He first became a public figure involved with community safety organizations Take Back Santa Cruz and the Clean Team in 2012 when he uploaded a video to YouTube showing drug paraphernalia on Cowell's Beach in Santa Cruz. After Greiner shared the video through Take Back Santa Cruz, the organization reported their Facebook group acquired approximately 500 new members.
In 2013 Take Back Santa Cruz member Steve Schlicht was appointed by Mayor of Santa Cruz Hilary Bryant to the city's newly formed 'public safety task force' that critics argue has focused on petty crimes relating to drug use and homelessness, over more direct approaches to violent crimes such as rape and violence against women.
TBSC Watchdog writes: "As a result of the viral publicity and unquestioned support by Take Back Santa Cruz, The Clean Team, and the Santa Cruz Patch, Greiner's surfing school business may have expanded, thereby giving him more access to victims. Has the anti-homeless agenda of these so called public safety groups had a negative impact on public safety overall in Santa Cruz? Are their viral advocacy methods shifting focus away from real crime, and towards misdemeanors and petty infractions?"
