Huntington Beach, California is known for its surf, but for locals, having a good time has become a bit of a problem. Huntington Beach police officials are more vigilant now than ever. Recent riots resulting in vandalism against police and general lawlessness have resulted in a much shorter leash for locals getting into minor trouble, and the tension between arresting officers and offenders is reaching the breaking point. HB police do not want another riot on their hands, and they may be puffing their chests to force locals into submission. Normally law-abiding citizens are now being charged with public drunkenness, disturbing the peace, vandalism, and other crimes that may have previously been given a warning, and those perpetrating felonies may find it more difficult to escape the long arm of the law.
