Manhattan Beach Update: No Private Beach & Checkpoints?

That "Emergency Meeting" that was supposed to happen in Manhattan Beach to discuss solutions to the "thug" problem on the beach never happened. It was canceled, probably because in the words of organizers Dr. Ron Biondo, it was "no longer necessary." The development was reported by GerritsenBeach.net, which first brought word of the "ideas" for things like police checkpoints, beachfront metal detectors and beach privatization. Today's Post reports "Biondo said he overreacted after receiving a false report from other members and the area's own private security company that there was a shooting on June 12." There was no shooting. Us, we're thinking that the canceled meeting and plans might--just a little--have something to do with negative press coverage.
