Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

IGNORANCE! ABUSE will change all living creatures. Pit Bulls are no different than any other animal. Horses are known to be violent and have had to be put down. Other dog breeds have also been violent and have been put down.

IT IS USUALLY THE OWNER! An owner needs to educate themselves before taking on a pet. ANY PET. Are you expecting to board a horse in an apartment? Do you have the time to devote to your pet? It takes time and effort to socialize a pet. Is your home appropriate for the pet? Is it calm or in chaos? Wll the pet fit in with other pets you may have? Can you afford the pet, food, vaccines, vets, etc.? Do you have adequate housing for you pet?

BEWARE OF THE WARNINGS? Don't put a fox in a chicken coup? Be aware of consequences. A baby cannot defend itself against animals. THINK! FIND YOUR COMMON SENSE.

I speak from experience. I own 3 pits bulls. I live alone on an acre of land with several acres between neighbors. I don't have any children visiting. I am usually home 24/7.
I am applauded by the animal control dept in my area. I am more afraid of someone killing my dogs because they are pits then I am of them biting someone. They have never been mistreated by a human and they trust people.

MAKE SURE THE ANIMAL AND THE HUMAN MATCH!

Re: “DUI, gang and other units shift to the streets as crime rates surge, response times lag

Pitiful. The city has entered YOYO territory, i.e., You're On Your Own.
Meanwhile, the Mayor runs off to AZ, telling them not to legalize MJ.
Is there a "bathroom bill" due soon from our enlightened leadership?
Major companies are beating down the doors to move here. NOT!!

Re: “Cyclists say their lives are at risk from road-raging motorists

Most of these so-called bikers are a menace to the public.
It is time to force bikers to be licensed, carry liability insurance, and to pay road taxes like the rest of do.
I've seen bikers----the large majority---run stop signs, weave in and out of traffic, kick cars for no reason other than spite, so on and so forth.

Re: “Why is private security patrolling our public streets?

Why? Because Struthers and the reich have always planned to take every bit of public property, land and services and pirate-tize them for the enrichment of their campaign contributors. The recent de-staffing of CSPD is the latest step in that effort and when that service is wrecked and the budget slashed all the way then it will be sold for pennies like the libraries, parks, schools, garbage, utilities, roads, snow removal, etc. This is an ideological battle to steal the public's property.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

One thing the authorities cannot do is continue to return known vicious dogs back to irresponsible, delusional owners until someone is DEAD. The dogs should be put down. Public safety MUST come before the self imagined right to own a well documented vicious breed. People who failed to control their dogs once will fail again.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

Pit bulls are never appropriate pets ever. Don't be fooled by the lies pit proponents propagate that "pits are just like other dogs". Sadly, pits are nothing like other dogs. Pit bulls maul, maim and kill more people, pets and livestock animals than all other dog breeds and mixes combined. Choose your pet dog carefully. Choose life.

Re: “Regional Building Department would inspect construction of its business partner

OldCrank.

Mr. Jenkins is NOT going to use HIS funds to build anything. He is going to use taxpayer funds, this is a pattern with him. Taxpayers pay for his developments, he profits, and we are stuck with his tasteless, whitebread vision for the city. Hello to more chain restaurants and meat market bars coming soon. Goodbye, bookstores, art galleries, and anything resembling culture..... Pure corporate welfare.

Re: “10-year-old is seizure-free after one year of cannabis oil

Hello Everyone,

At the age of 15 I had my first seizure. I was in high school and didn't want anyone to know that I had epilepsy. I have only had seizures on two occasions. I was so ashamed and didn't want people to think that something was wrong with me. I finally got to the point where I told people that I had epilepsy. I came to the place that I realized that I had to own my epilepsy or it would control me. Epilepsy hadn't really affected my life until about 8 years ago after my first child was born... I am a wife and mother of three beautiful children. I have lived with epilepsy for 20 years Yet, my life has been dramatically impacted by epilepsy. I had search for cure at online without no hope. I met a Man called DR Ethan, i contact him I made an order of his medicine and I do not experience seizure anymore i was cured form it. So if you are in the same situation as me contact him on this email doctor.ethan6@gmail.com or call him +1(386-237-6472)

Re: “Regional Building Department would inspect construction of its business partner

I have lived here for about 4 years now. Coming from the Western Slope and other places in the country, the local government here seems abnormally corrupt. As a liberal democrat, I am at an odd crossroads where I actually won't vote for tax increases, due to the amount of obvious corruption in COS.
The C4C project literally came from nowhere and is up and running- without any input from the taxpayers. The citizens voted for recreational MJ, the city leadership decided to not respect the vote and overturned it. St. Francis hospital sells for 50k. The list goes on, and on, and on.
OldCrank- you sound like an Old Fool. Is this an attempt at propaganda or is this how your reasoning actually works?

COS needs to elect officials who desire to actually serve our community- with a few good leaders it wouldn't be hard to fix up our city. Cancel the corruption, the buddy buddy deals with developers like the Jenkins, and we ought to be ok.

Re: “D-11 says it needs more money to make schools safe, educate students

Tannim, I do not remember you ever coming to a D11 Budget Subcommittee meeting. However, the next one is September 27th at 6pm in the BoE room. Come, participate and become learned as to where the money goes in the District. I assure you, the spend on overhead is NOT there.

Re: “Fewer Colorado Springs cops work the streets as crime rises

Less police means more crime? Is that what I gleaned from skimming over this article? I was unaware that police stopped crime and thought they mostly investigated crime that had already occurred. I also thought that police here had the number one spot on the budget followed by the mayors office. (Go figure that one out, or I am reading everything wrong and if I am reading everything wrong then happy day! I can finally start to fit into society!)
A large city's police force should be self-sufficient but that cannot happen when "tools" are always being purchased to fight the War on ___________________ (fill in the blank). I would love to contract with the city to enforce traffic laws. There is a killing to be made writing traffic tickets but that won't happen because historically, at least up until a few years ago a ton of crime was solved, fugitives arrested etc all through simple traffic stops. Not roadblocks or SWAT teams or undercover investigations lasting years....
Don't get me wrong, I support legitimate law enforcement but not Rights violations, profiling or the tricks that are used to turn a simple incident into an arrest.
I was also wondering, how fast do the new patrol cars go?

Re: “CSPD to beef up patrol

I strongly disagree with that statement. The community impact unit can be saying hi to kids when they don't have a call. Glad to hear changes. From south Texas, Corpus Christi, gang population is off the charts and yet you can always get a hold of someone on the non-emergency number and response times are much quicker. Not the only change needs to happen, but it'll keep us law abiding citizens safer as the city government does their job.

What ever happened to all the $$$ that was going to be saved by closing 9 schools back in 2009? I've never seen any report on what that move did to give D11 more funds. Now they want more?

Re: “Case file paints picture of a "neighborhood watchman" killing in self-defense

My last name is Garcia. NO MATTER what happened b4 he walked up 2 the window & whether r not they knew each other, if he's got a permit 2 carry & some1s tailgating him he has a right 2 defend himself. Period. If lunged at thru ur window by any1 -ur mom or the Pres of usa- & u "say" u felt threatened 2 the cops afterwards it is the law that u r protected under. Period. The prob is punk kids -& adults who think its their right 2 punch some that says words 2 u u dont like. Racist r not. 1st amendment covers speech, not punches 4 words. Ppl might think they're gonna teach a racist old man a lesson with their fist. Better learn - ur gonna get a bullet in ur head legally
