And commenting or posting using my real name can be disastrous. Of that I am quite aware.

Re: “City sued over slamdown

happyfew, and this is in no way an isolated incident. It is happening everywhere. What are they being trained for is what I would like to know. The cop should have the cuffs on him and be discharged then formally charged. Why are they thinking the are above the law?? If you have someone in custody and cannot handle them then call for back up. If you have a short temper then resign. This is another man that should not have badge or a firearm.

Re: “City sued over slamdown

It only took the cop about 15 seconds to realize he screwed up bad. you can see it in his face. it appears he sees the video camera about the same time.

still no adult response and apology from the chief... says a lot about the cops around here.

cameras are everywhere cops... be on your best behavior... don't pull a walker.

Is this an advertisement? I've got no idea why this was written nor do I get the purpose or message.

Re: “Pikes Peak-area farmers markets for summer 2015

What happened to all the old standard farmers markets at Memorial Park and Powers? Half my friends have to go to the store to buy veggies because they can't find a market. They need to advertise or something.

Re: “City sued over slamdown

police need to be policed and warned that use of force will be scrutinized by their employers-the public and the courts-and that termination as well as municipal and personal fines could ensue, better judgement over retaliation.

You want a single link? Here's a single link (although, "you will pooh-pooh my sources..."):

Re: “Drones coming to Carson, plan for high-risk houses, and more

"Radical Islam was burning people alive and slashing throats long before Bush/Cheney and the oh so evil cheerleader pyramid they made at Abu Ghraib."

First of all, you are defending Bush and Cheney, so you are the "Abu Ghraib cheerleader!"

Second, when you use the phrase "Radical Islam" you ought to make it clear what you mean is that all of Islam is radical, that Islam is a radical religion--not that there is a moderate wing of Islam opposed to the radical wing.

By the way, Christians were also fond of burning people at the stake long before Bush/Cheney.

Re: “Drones coming to Carson, plan for high-risk houses, and more

"You will pooh-pooh my sources because that's how lefties counter."

If and when that ever happens you will have a right to criticize me for it. In the meantime you are trying to stereotype me, which is how you ended up missing the fact that I actually agreed with you on the main point of US military spending. Furthermore, you are trying to bluff your way out of the corner you painted yourself into. If you have the evidence, cite it; don't waste electrons explaining how devastating your arguments could have been if you were not too lazy to produce them here.

"Then I could fill 12 vertical inches of comment space with direct quotes from the sources." And most of it redundant if not irrelevant. You did manage to mention one actual fact, from your wonderful sources. "...about the origin of the specific group known as ISIS. Did you know those roots go back to 1999?"

In 1999, Saddam Hussein still ruled Iraq and his military was tasked with suppressing groups like ISIS. It was not until after he and his military were thrown out of office that the former commanders allied themselves with ISIS, and not until the US left Iraq that ISIS broke out and started capturing territory. We know that ISIS fighters are equipped with sophisticated weaponry they captured from the regular Iraqi army, but where did they get their training on this equipment and where did they get their military discipline, in general, if not from the disbanded former military of Iraq?

Re: “Drones coming to Carson, plan for high-risk houses, and more

"ISIS was not the topic of this thread - US military spending is." ISIS was brought up by the first people to comment on the topic of US military spending.

"You have completely ignored my points on that." You really need to get reading glasses. Far from ignoring your points, I wrote, "As for your main point, I am in total agreement."

"Case closed." Indeed!

Re: “Let's rise above violence

K- Diversion seems to be your only discussion tactic. No one in their right mind, regardless of race, supports the Democrat-founded KKK. But that's not the topic.

In his op-ed, Rev Carter misrepresented the facts. He made veiled racist threats. He IGNORES the horrendous state of the inner-city black condition caused by Democrat policy and his brothers in race hustling.

Black lives matter you say? What about my NYC statistic?

That's the topic at hand. Focus man, focus.

Since you brought up the Klan, did you know Robert Byrd, Democrat US Senator from WV was the longest serving Senator (50+ yrs) ever until his death in 2010. He was a member and recruiter for the KKK. This Democrat continued using the n-word in public until a few years before his death. I await your high and mighty outrage at this.

Re: “Confederate-flag burning scheduled for Fourth of July

"Car full of jeering black men force black Confederate supporter off road to his death after flag rally." After a flag rally organized by the Ku Klux Klan, who had the audacity to repeat the same lies about how the flag is about "tradition" and not a symbol of race hatred. The KKK was organized in the aftermath of the Civil War and is known to have engaged in acts of racist violence, but PacksA9 insists we cannot pull the Klan's favorite flag from public grounds until the Black community puts an end to all random crimes committed by sick, disorganized individuals in their midst.

In fact, the FBI had to be instructed by the president to investigate the criminal activities of the Ku Klux Klan. At the time, they were already investigating the entirely legal activities of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, jr., on their own initiative, and--not finding any evidence of wrong-doing--began a campaign of feeding lies and innuendo to sympathetic journalists in order to smear Dr. King in the media.

Re: “Let's rise above violence

"While it looks like arson, fire investigators have not seen evidence that hate was a motivation for the crime..." While shooting a young woman with a shotgun looks like murder, no evidence has been presented to show hate was a motivation for the crime.
