Re: “Statistics show higher arrest rate for local African American drivers, but questions persist

Ahhh, Holmes, don't you see that is EXACTLY the problem!! It should not matter one iota who the reporting party is, i.e., Pam, you, me, someone poor, someone rich, black, white, brown, gay, straight, republican, democrat, whatever... you get the picture, right? It is the DUTY and sworn oath for the police to PROTECT and DEFEND the citizenry. All citizenry. EQUALLY, no matter who they are.

Re: “Statistics show higher arrest rate for local African American drivers, but questions persist

Oh man, it will be a fascinating day when Pam Zubeck needs Police assistance. Officers will recognize her name as the reporting party and just may find a reason to slow their response. Interesting day indeed...just a matter of time but it will happen!!

Re: “Manitou has recovered, maybe a little too much

It is not anyone's responsibility to give the homeless a place to smoke pot. If you don't have a place to smoke, that is your problem. Also, no one should need a incentive to clean up after themselves. It's called being an adult.

Re: “Manitou has recovered, maybe a little too much

When the empty shop fronts are running successful businesses again we can talk about success. Want the homeless to stop smoking pot in public give them somewhere to smoke it in peace. Perhaps use the opportunity for outreach to make sure they are practicing fire safety and offer them incentives to clean up after each other.

Re: “Neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky spreads the good word about brains and religion

I think that an argument can be made to refute the notion that God or gods are merely projections of needs. Here it goes-- I'd posit: Yet as humans we have the power to discern that we perceive reality AND attempt to conceive reality (i.e. explain it). These two functions of consciousness operate according to two different starting points. Perception begins with innate knowledge that matter does not "create" itself. When parts of the human cell are observed to demonstrate programming--perception enables the thought and or question about "What caused this information to exist?" The answer to that question is a function of the second mode of knowing. The second mode of knowing, conception, follows perception and attempts to interpret the meaning of what is observed. Clearly science begins at the second starting point and thus must follow observations to provide operational definitions and descriptions. This gives us technology or technical knowledge but tells us nothing about what's beyond the material universe. To claim that religion simply serves a biological imperative or social need depends upon circular reasoning. There is no God--our needs determine our faith--why--because there is no God "out there." Knowledge of God requires that perception be evaluated. This is the realm of philosophy, apologetics, and forensic investigation and reasoning. The appearance of matter only happened once. According to Hume we'd have to deny this obvious perception based upon the fact that it's a one-time occurrence. And if knowledge only comes by experience as Lock posited, and the sudden appearance of matter happens once not to mention without primary witness, therefore we'd have to deny that it happened. Obviously this is absurd--by perception but not by conception. Conception follows deductive reasoning and if a premise appears to have merit then the conclusions that follow seem to bear truth--real or actual knowledge. Thus someone like Hume can posit the idea of the impossibility of miracles by dismissal for lack of replicability and within the realm of that premise the conclusion seems to prove the folly of faith. However when tested by perceived knowledge the conception becomes obviously flawed. Thus an axiom that perceived laws or reality govern conceived laws or reality. Denying the reality of perceived truth cannot stand because it requires perception to make its argument--that perceived reality cannot exist. But then this refutes itself--which by definition is unreasonable.

Re: “Waller, Geitner set their sights on county commissioner seat

HBA and Colorado Springs Forward endorsements should lead voters concerned with the continuation of County handouts to development interests to oppose Waller. You don't get those endorsements without expectations that your votes will provide tax revenue for corporate welfare. I support Geitner. He is principled and doesn't owe anyone anything.

Re: “CSPD suspended from military surplus program based on accountability glitch

Suthers has done a lot. Hes secured the backing of every developer and rich folk in the County so he can make a jab at higher office. Hes gave away public land, hes raised our taxes to one of the highest in the Nation, hes fixed three pot holes on his street and hes convinced a big portion of the populace that hes great. What more do you want from a Mayor.

Re: “Millennial firebrand Calandra Vargas wants to kick Lamborn to the curb

She's a fundamentalist Christian and a creationist. She only has one agenda. Although she may either not know it, or may fight very hard to keep it concealed, her only true agenda is the propagation of her God and her book of wholly fables. No separation of church and state with this one. She has been indoctrinated to belive that the Constitution was written specifically to protect the Christian belief system, not that the founding fathers recognized that to have freedom of religion you need to have freedom from religion.

Re: “Manitou has recovered, maybe a little too much

.... Bicyclers and motorcyclists should be warned. Manitou avenue is so dangerously littered with potholes your life is in danger when you drive this road. It was not the case from 1975 through the early 2000's . Ignorance and "Deferred maintenance" pursued and there have been no consistent repairs or maintenance performed. With all of the "Jammed down our throats" parking revenues and increase in sales taxes there is no logical reason the city does not have the equipment/their own crew to fix this issue(the equipment is not expensive and we have most of it). We don't need an uncaring outside contractor (that CS embraces). THE ROADS ARE USED BY EVERYONE. It's an insult to follow Colorado Springs corrupt method on this issue. Madame Mayor get the potholes fixed TODAY ! Stop with the excuses...it is doable without one more excuse.....

Re: “Statistics show higher arrest rate for local African American drivers, but questions persist

If the Independent was a restaurant all the food would all be half-baked. This story is so typical of the reporting:dribs and drabs with no real conclusion. There has to be more to this than tallying up race on traffic tickets and it does almost force one to say that black males are bad drivers. But we know better. Who is writing the tickets and where? What time of day and what violations? Tell me that that information was not collected during the process and I will not believe it. If Officers X, Y and Z are writing the majority of tickets to blacks while the majority of patrol officers write tickets equal to population ratio then X, Y and Z need to be scrutinized.
All over this country racism, bigotry, cruelty etc still thrive but at least the peer pressure does not exist as it did before. Many are not really aware enough of discrimination in employment and practice it unknowingly. You cannot hire pretty young girls for your business and turn others down. You cannot ask birth dates on applications and you cannot ask dates on job history. Saying someone is overqualified is saying they are old and that is illegal. Don't even joke about it or you may find yourself paying someone you did not even hire. Too bad we have to have laws to make some people at least act as if they were decent human beings.

Re: “Statistics show higher arrest rate for local African American drivers, but questions persist

Sometimes cultural differences are the cause of increased police scrutiny, not racial bias - but of course any further discussion of the subject is forbidden by our current society.
