Re: “Wild Ride” (GT, 8/25): Just read your article about the huge Santa Cruz Ride Out biking event in Santa Cruz Saturday. We don’t appreciate your minimizing the lawlessness and mayhem that this event created in our town. From the top down, from organizers to the participants, this event was a show of disrespect to our town and our citizens. The inability of our law enforcement agencies to stop, contain or even manage and protect our streets exposes our town as a soft target. Litter, aggressive behavior and intimidation was their overall rule of the day. The “Karen” comment directed at anyone that was offended pretty much tells us what their real intentions are in staging the event here.
