Re: “CSPD cop's letter says department is a mess

Bad management isn't a budget issue.

Re: “Rally planned against Trump's new deportation order

Nope, Bill Burns. Our parents, grandparents, great grandparents, or further back might be immigrants, but we would only be immigrants if we personally moved here from somewhere else ourselves. I was born in the US to parents who were born here. I am not an immigrant. One of my grandfathers was an immigrant, because he came here from another country.

Re: “Trash and trash-talking derail community conversation about homelessness

This doesn't just occur downtown - there are camps across the creek from the Goose Gossage park, and further down near Criterium Bike Shop. Some of those are piled with trash - in those areas, there are no facilities of any kind so I presume they're using the creek (which some tents are pitched right next to) for a toilet.

Re: “EPCSO's Special Investigations Fund audited by Department of Justice

You don't say!

Here is good question! Who was held accountable for this stupidity? Was Larry Borland held accountable? Was Brian McPike or Jane Fromme held accountable? Heck, Fromme has been the bookkeeper of those funds for many years now. Did she get disciplined?

It's interesting, Elder and his "little house of horrors" tried hiding this until the DirtyElder website exposed it and the media started snooping! A lot more credibility goes out to the DirtyElder website, that's for sure!

In any event, all along so many EPC and EPSO staff have said Borland, McPike, Fromme, Kniffen, Bell and DeStefano are INCOMPETENT and SHOULD NOT be assigned to jobs that deal with money!!!! This shows one very clear example. What a shame!

Re: “CSPD cop's letter says department is a mess

Hire more officers; Police officers, command staff and Chief have a tough job especially without enough officers. An unsigned, derogatory letter should get zero response.

Re: “Can Colorado Springs get a cannabis-friendly City Council?

Not to appear cavalier when every vote is as critical as it will be this April, but when a candidate says, "I think we should let the people vote", that candidate has my vote. Because of the glaring disconnect between the clear wishes of the people and the recent votes of council (think Strawberry Fields).... I, like General Palmer, will trust the judgement of the people first. I have had enough of Mayor Suther's saying that he opposes taking an issue to a vote unless he has to do so. And I've had enough of council members bowing to the mayor's wishes rather than those of their constituents.

Re: “The resurgence of the radical left raises questions

Bill Maher Takes Credit for Milo Yiannopouloss Fall

After taking flak for inviting incendiary alt-right personality Milo Yiannopoulos onto his show Real Time, Bill Maher is now claiming credit for the pundits downfall. What I think people saw was an emotionally needy Ann Coulter wannabe, trying to make a buck off of the lefts propensity for outrage, Maher said. And by the end of the weekend, by dinnertime Monday, hes dropped as a speaker at CPAC. Then hes dropped by Breitbart, and his book deal falls through. As I say, sunlight is the best disinfectant. Youre welcome.

Re: “Rally planned against Trump's new deportation order

Are you Cheyenne? Ute, Arapaho, Cherokee, Sioux, Navajo, Chippewa or Choctaw (or any of the 566 tribes)? How about Aztec, Inca, Yaqui, Olmec, Zapotec? Mayan? Nope? Then you're a immigrant.

Re: “Can Colorado Springs get a cannabis-friendly City Council?

Which is it going to be folks? Olympic City or Pot City....we have medical MJ on every other corner because 95% of our population must have cancer or other painful medical issues that can't be alleviated with normal meds. Now we have idiots who want Opium dens, excuse me, cannabis clubs. Let's just vote for Cheech and Chong and everyone get high.

What a wonderful place you are creating to raise kids. It's all about MONEY!! This city used to be about Quality of Life....

Re: “Can Colorado Springs get a cannabis-friendly City Council?

The 'make-up' or composition of the incoming city council will impact not only positions on the marijuana issue, but a number of issues to come up on their watch - which candidates to you feel will win each district seat? How important do you feel 'endorsements' are from political, civic, business, and trade groups to a candidate? Please consider two minutes to weigh in and give your thoughts and comments. Thank you.

Re: “Media oppose mediation proposal for public records

Current law says govt records are to be made available to the public. Why is mediation necessary to obtain these records? This appears to me to be another effort by govt to make it difficult for the public to know how it's spending OUR tax dollars.

Does Suthers impending debt of $27M for C4C include the Jenkins condo garage at the west end of the pedestrian bridge, which is, by the way, a long walk from the proposed Olympic museum?

Re: “Rally planned against Trump's new deportation order

Are you an immigrant to the United States and have become a citizen of the United States? Yes. Great! You have nothing to worry about. We are glad to have you here.

No

OK, are you a legal resident AKA "green card" holder or on a current visa? Yes. Great! Unless you commit a crime (usually a felony) violating the long standing requirements of the green card or visa, you have nothing to worry about. We are glad to have you here.

No.

Have you committed a misdemeanor or felony crime? No. OK, well you are probably here illegally and should really go home, but you are not the priority for being caught and deported.

Yes. Expect to get jailed and probably deported.

(caveat: the poster's mother is a legal immigrant to the US)

This is the law, not really Trump's policy.

Re: “Media oppose mediation proposal for public records

This is a problem. In fact, related to the impending debt of $27 million for City for Champions that Mayor Suthers will sign onto, I requested communications between the City and a private entity who will benefit from the public debt. The City's lawyers denied the request based on a Colorado statute that they failed to follow in their denial. How do you mediate when the government doesn't follow the law? Do you get a mediator telling the requestor to be happy with only partial adherence to the law? Unfortunately, a lawsuit is the only recourse. Mediation about the extent to which the City or any public entity must comply with the law will result in loss of transparency and give governments another rock to hide under.

Re: “CSPD cop's letter says department is a mess

Here's an idea: How about we legalize recreational pot sales in the city and use the increased tax revenues to pay our cops better and hire more cops?
