Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

I though his statement said the charges were dropped immediately , 2 months is not immediately. And I think if I assaulted my father and was charged I would remember lol Keep digging that hole .

Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

Curious, Sen. Michael Bennet has had nothing to do with our reporting on this incident. We simply looked up Glenn's record and then dug deeper.

Re: “Assessing the local economy

Rather than commiserate about the local job market, HazyHurts, come up with a solution.

Create jobs by diversifying the economic engine. The problem isn't Drake is downtown but that there are no factories that build anything heavy. Pueblo has the wind factory, the steel mill, and other industry. Colorado Springs hasn't bent steel for anything in eons.

This city has the ability to be an industrial engine, but nobody wants to pull the trigger. Why? It isn't the physical or economic climate, so it must be the religion and the government.

That's where the fixes need to be made.

Re: “KCMJ cuts, hunting and fishing license fees, handicap parking, and more

Christina Krych: Inter-city expresses, or interurban commuter lines as they are known in America, are not only a dying breed (there's only one left, the Chicago, South Shore, and South Bend Railroad), but they continually lose money and are subsidized by tax dollars on top of the tickets. The other problem with them is once you hit a station and get off, then what? Colorado, like most of the west, doesn't address that very well. The experimental bullet train in California is a huge boondoggle that goes nowhere.

Re: “Residents make do — but don't make peace — with their contaminated water

To answer MargRita's question, and she's not stupid, it's a good question, but it has a complex answer.

The short form is that it depends on the filter.

The long form is that the filter has to be a Granular Activated Carbon, or GAC filter, and the granularity has to be such that it actually filters out the PFCs. Not all GACs do that. To get one that works requires careful research, and they aren't cheap, either. You can find under-sink filters at Lowes for under $200, but whether that can filter the PFCs is TBD. Berkey is checking their countertop tank filters to see if they do it, but they don't know either.

A good solution is a 5-gallon water cooler. Best one out there is $150 at Costco, but there are similar ones for slightly more at Lowes or Home Depot. The 5-gallon jugs are expensive on initial startup at $17 per, but they can be refilled for as low as 25 cents a gallon at various stores. Those fills can be GAC filtered, check the dispensers.

Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

Don't believe Glenn for a second. The record pretty much disproves him.

Darryl Glenn is Ed Jones v2.0, but with a better script, more rehearsal, and just as much political failure.

P.S. He had a TS clearance in the AF, so he has been fingerprinted.

Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

It is amazing that both the Indy and the Gazette are digging for the "truth" about an incident that happened 32 years ago, when Glenn was 18. In that incident, in order to stop his father from beating his mother, Glenn may have hit him in the face Or he may not have - his father dropped the charge 2 months later. And why should Glenn remember the details about this particular incident, one of many that occurred in his often violent home life. Living with a physically abusive father and attempting to protect one's mother from harm is something children and young adults try hard to forget.

Despite the harrowing circumstances of his childhood home life, it is admirable that Glenn has succeeded in putting his past behind him and making his life one of accomplishment - a life that would make any father proud.

Learning about this long ago event, my respect for Glenn has gone up several notches from an already high degree of respect. Wanna bet that his U.S. Senate challenger - Michael Bennett - is involved in this attempt to smear Glenn?

Re: “Police, court documents differ from Glenn on 1983 incident

Political consultant Floyd Ciruli of Denver stated that a failure for Glenn to own up to the facts could hurt Glenn more than the original offense. There seems to be common thread within politics of denying the truth. Lying about a small thing makes it into a giant. My sincere hope is that Glenn will overcome the need to lie and go on to be a politician known for integrity.

Re: “KCMJ cuts, hunting and fishing license fees, handicap parking, and more

Ryan Hannigan wrote "It seems like many of the local live shows have been "stolen" by some other entity." I believe that is a reference to the new Studio 809 podcast network several former KCMJ hosts/volunteers have launched (myself included). We are not encouraging any shows to leave KCMJ. However, we are providing a warm, positive, nurturing environment for any shows that no longer feel they can make it work at KCMJ. I personally hope they are all back on KCMJ one day. The existence of Studio 809 is not a cause of what Gary wrote about. It's a symptom.

Re: “State Patrol forces citizen to drive to its Lakewood office to view, but not copy, reports

There are a few additional points that, as the subject of this article, I feel important to share with Indy readers….

You should know that Jeff Roberts’ points regarding redacting personal information from the documents is well taken—and I heavily stressed that in court. Judge Hall, however, did not address this point at all. (And of course as you saw in Pam’s article, there was no personal/private information contained in the documents needing protection, thus demonstrating the degree to which cops, i.e., CSP Chief Hernandez, will prevaricate— even in front of a judge.)

I also stressed in court that Colorado State Patrol’s (CSP) argument that making copies available could lead to unwarranted adverse consequences is absurd in light of them allowing me to not only view the requested documents in person, but also because they’d allow note-taking. This note-taking, I explained to the judge, would result in verbatim duplicates of the documents both in form and content. I questioned how copies of the documents might lead to unwarranted adverse consequences while exact duplicates created via note-taking in person would not. The judge didn’t address that point, either.

Now, veering off the main topic of Pam’s article, you might be interested in knowing what the documents revealed. Bottom line, the investigation was bungled, constitutes a farce and a sham, and highlights State Troopers’ lies and prevarications. Here but a very few examples:

— The complaint was improperly categorized on CSP’s Administrative Notification Of Allegations form.

— Trooper Kenneth Nuci, the subject of my complaint, states that he was inside the bay doing a VIN inspection when he overheard me speaking with Toby Espinoza (a CDOT employee). How could Nuci from within the bay overhear a conversation I had more than 30’ away on the side of the building?

— Trooper Holly Ewing, who walked out of the bay shortly after I arrived, stated “I did not hear any of the verbal interaction between Toby and the male party.” How could Nuci hear from inside the bay that which Ewing could not from the outside and not too far from me and Espinoza?

— Trooper Jessica Parsons states that “I heard…Ewing instruct the male party to pull his vehicle and trailer off to the right and to bring in his paperwork.” This contradicts Ewing’s statement that it was Nuci who provided these instructions.

— Sgt. Todd James states that he talked to a female Trooper named Holsinger about the interaction she had with me. According to his statement, “she tried talking to him during the inspection.” There was, however, no female part of my inspection and the only interaction I had with a female was exceptionally brief and with Ewing.

How can citizens trust cops’ investigations when it comes to them beating up citizens, shooting them, etc., when they can’t even get something as benign as this right?

CSP wants the public to believe that their core values consist of honor, duty, and respect. The exact opposite occurred here. And when I let CSP leadership know about it, based on the evidence obtained within their own documents, they didn’t care…

— The District Commander Maj. Scott Copley stated that he “disagreed” with what I learned from CSP’s investigatory documents. WHAT?

— CSP Chief Scott Hernandez simply ignored my writing which he received via certified mail on April 26, 2016.

— CO Dept. of Public Safety Exec. Dir. Stan Hilkey received my certified mail May 24…I’m still waiting on a reply….

Honor, Duty, Respect…yeah, right; just a cheap tagline that means nothing when it really matters.

CSP’s and CDPS’s leadership is a disgrace to the public and to all of those agency members who actually do want to serve the public honorably.
