Anyone surprised by the violent crime we seem to have every week in Capitola and/or Soquel?

Kathlean, that is really interesting. I will look into it.

Crime of any sort never surprises me in any community because where there are people there will be crime. However, two words you use do surprise me: "violent" and "seem." Violent crimes are murders, rapes, armed robberies with assaults, domestic crimes, sex slavery, and any sexual abuse of children. Are these happening or seem to be happening in Capitola and Soquel? What do you mean by "seem"?

We had battery and inflicting corporal injury in the same week. I shouldn't have said seem. It was and is a reality.
