In June 2004, the Oxnard Police Department and the Ventura County Sheriff imposed a gang injunction over a 6.6-square-mile (17 km2) area of the central district of the city, in order to restrict gang activity. The injunction was upheld in the Ventura County Superior Court and made a permanent law in 2005. A similar injunction was imposed in September 2006 over a 4.26-square-mile (11.0 km2) area of the south side of the city.
Oxnard in SupervolcanoEdit
When Squirt Frog and the Evolving Tadpoles played in New York, Justin Nachman found a positive review of the band in The New Yorker's "Night Life - Rock and Pop" section. It said, in part "... bring a musical sensibility that mixes Cowboy Bebop with Bebop Deluxe from Oxnard, California, to Manhattan." Aside from the disgust the band felt with being identified with the grimy, working-class town of Oxnard, Rob Ferguson didn't think you could mix animé with a 1970s British band. Instead, the writer was probably trying to be cute.
