The Village and the Bowen Ranch are like comparing apples and oranges.

The village is residential and the residents just want to live their ordinary lives in peace / The bowen ranch is a for profit commercial business where the public is forced to pay a toll charge under the threat of violence

The village affects only the families who live there and their visitors / The bowen ranch affects thousands of people annually

The village residents have a variety of facilities to handle human waste / The bowen ranch has an illegal cesspool only for the toll collectors and no facilities available for the private campground open to the public (for which Mike charges and thousands use annually). How many of these people bring a shovel? How many dispose of their waste properly?

The village had their civil and human rights violated with a swat team operation and illegal searches of their homes / Mike Castro has not suffered from any civil or human rights violations. Instead, Mike Castro has violated the civil and human rights of thousands of people annually by depriving them of their right to access public lands without the threat of violence

The village residents have been mostly peaceful and nonviolent / Mike Castro has conducted a reign of violence against numerous members of the public who are legally accessing their public land

The residents of the village were overwhelmed by the egregious raid and violations of their civil rights and really had no capacity to pay for an attorney or respond to the pages of alleged code violations / Mike Castro has the financial capacity to hire an attorney (thanks to the nontaxed income that he has received since 1992, in 1993 estimated to be about $40,000 and that was at $2 per person)

LaughingBear implies that the real criminals are the injured victims crying out for justice. These victims should just be quiet, live and let live with the violent criminal still in their midst. If we are just quiet, the violence will just go away.

The public has a right to know about the ongoing and continued threat posed by Mike Castro to their very lives while he profits by collecting their tolls every weekend. The responsible agencies have been negligent in not handling these crimes appropriately and not disclosing the violence to the unsuspecting public. A concerned citizen would do everything within their legal capacity to warn the public for their own protection and to reduce that threat. If code violations are a method to reduce that threat, then reporting those code violations to the appropriate authorities is a reasonable action.
