Tickets are only given out when a law is violated moron.
You would think Regional Building's lawyer, Todd Welch, would have reviewed the agreement prior to moving forward.
1. It was not submitted to Welch, in which case the person (Roger Lovell?) responsible for doing so should be reprimanded.
2. Or it was submitted to Welch, and he is incompetent and should be reprimanded.
Good job Pam Zubeck!
It looks bad, but nothing illegal went on here. He was not charged and/or indicted with any crime at the time he was put on paid administrative leave and was still in the same status at the time of his retirement. Hopefully, if and when he is convicted, they can garnish his retirement pay to recoup any fines and/or penalties.
Terry Maketa, our ex-county sheriff, was in a similar situation. The board of county commissioners knew he was up to no good, but were too gutless to fire him and allowed him to retire with a generous pension a few months later.
In the federal government, the person heading the construction of the new VA hospital in Aurora managed to retire just when questions about cost over-runs and late schedules were hitting Congress and the press. He retired and unplugged his phone.
When there's no accountability there's a big hole in the system - this hole is HUGE! Who polices the police?
That Trump is still in the race after all that he has said, and after stonewalling on releasing his tax returns, I'm forced to question the "reasoning" that led the Repubs into this morass. Colorado Springs didn't produce anything newsworthy in the polls other than to show their unmitigated hatred of anything populist.
Lots of cops out giving tickets today. First time I have seen them all year. Guess that fills the city coffers much better than sitting behind a desk.
For God's sake - park the drama! I can match article for article about the origin of the breed. At the end of the day it's about the owners' understanding of the breed and the treatment of the animal that predicts the nature of the dog. Pick your pet staying within your limits of ability to understand EACH INDIVIDUAL DOG! There. How's that? All of my experience (not the written word) with this breed had been positive and loving. You'll get out of your dog what you put in the dog and no, I don't feel at all responsible for anyone else's decision to own this breed because I don't know the temperament of the dog's owner. Since the owner is largely responsible for the dog's behavior, feeling responsible for a specific animal's actions is ridiculous and shows major bias based on what is read about the breed. Trashing an entire breed because of an individual dog's actions is at the very least narrow minded. The folks who rescued this animal know the most about the nature of their pet since they rescued him. We can argue all day about the particulars and it means nothing as to the outcome of this saga. I hope all involved are pleased with the outcome as I've no more inclination to use this thread as a personal debate source.

If you think "cracking" the 2 party system will stop things being about $ and favors, you are delusional. Additionally, if there ever were a string 3rd or 4th party, the result would be the coalition governments found in Europe which fall apart all the time. Also it would be very likely that nobody would receive enough votes resulting in the President being chosen by the House of Representatives.
Who still uses bit.ly?
Either way, glad we bought our house last year...
I have spent a considerable bit of time with Roxy and I can attest to the fact that she is a wonderful dog. She is obedient and very affectionate. I cannot image this dog hurting anyone. All she want out of life is to play ball and be petted and hugged. My heart breaks every time I think of that sweet dog being locked up all alone. She needs to be around the people who love her and there are a lot of them. The people that dump pit bulls into one category are also the ones that dump people into one category. They don't take the time to really know the facts so they just follow along like sheep.
The only way to 'crack' the 2 party system is stop the money going into politics. Both parties are about $ and favors. Some candidates locally have not taken PAC money for a reason. Until the Koch like rich elite, citizens united and lobby money is taken out of politics a 3rd party never has a chance at the presidential level.
I'm waiting for the life threatening mauling by a pack of chihuahuas headline to come out.
Then you pittie freaks can have your day in the sun
Pit bulls were never known as "nanny" dogs. That MYTH was begun in 1971 by Lillian Roth, a lover of Staffordshire terriers who wished to direct peoples' attention away from the fighting dog roots of pit bull breeds. Pit bulls are currently killing around 15 children each year in the USA and maiming dozens of other children. NO dog is a "nanny" dog, of course, but pit bulls would be the very last dog anyone would choose to "nanny" their children.
A couple of months ago two newborn infants, in separate incidents, were killed by their family pit bull. To propagate such a dangerous myth is to be responsible in part for the mauling, maiming and killing of the hundreds of children maimed and killed by pit bulls. Even BadRap, a pit bull advocacy organization based in California has debunked this cruel and dangerous MYTH.
When choosing a pet dog for your family, choose a breed proven safe over the years and that would NOT be a pit bull. Pit bulls were originally bred a couple of centuries ago in England for the one and only purpose of killing each other in dog fighting pits for blood sport with gambling. They were NEVER intended to be kept in homes as pets. When adopting a pet dog, choose very carefully. Pits are not a good choice, especially if you have young children in your home. Is it worth the risk to you? I hope not!
So i know Mike Cook, he's a great guy and my co-worker. He invites his co workers to his home for a get together once a month and i've played with Roxy before. The first time i met her i got the impression where she was one of the most deciplined dog i have ever met! I'm wondering why she bit the officer. She might have been provoked or was just trying to protect the new dog? I say give the couple a chance and give them back their child. I know how much Mike loves his dog, and I dont think its unfair for them to take his dog away.
Wow. I've rarely seen such incredible and out loud, in-your-face arrogance about this breed. Here, I'll edify things. Pit Bulls were originally bred to be NANNIES because of the nature of the breed - loyal, protective, sweet and stubborn. Great qualities for a nanny, wouldn't you say? And Mary Ann Redfern is right when she says "pit bulls are not like any other breed" . That's why there are so many breeds to choose from. All the bully breeds (from the Bull Mastiff down to the little Boston Bull Terrier) have specific qualities a potential owner should know - stubborn, loyal, sweet, protective. I agree that you should choose your pet pretty carefully because the ignorant folks that have pit bulls don't allow for their specific traits. If you abuse a chihuahua and piss him off, he'll go all postal on your ass! Know your breed. If you can't handle a bully breed then DON'T GET ONE - duh. But don't trash a breed that you clearly don't understand just because you wanna sound off about it. My 2 daughters own 3 pits between them and I always help them train them. It's a big responsibility to own any dog. Pits should never be your pet on a whim. You want to bitch about vicious breeds? Try a dalmatian. They are pretty twitchy by nature, or a chihuahua. Chihuahuas are pretty temperamental and quick to ire. Just educate yourself especially before you make public posts about pits. You're just embarrassing yourself.
COLORADO SPRINGS CORRUPTION ESCALATES...
Some ignorant posts out here by people who don't know the dogs or owners. Can attest to Roxy being one of the sweetest dogs I know and the owners are great people who care. Anyone who knows these people say the same thing.
And his salary would pay for 2 new hires. The CSPD is being mismanaged and creating a situation where to make voters think a new tax is needed. Shameful.
I wonder why this humane society--whose spokeswoman says "According to the law, it has to be pretty severe in order for us to remove someone's animal. They have to be pretty much in immediate danger"--hasn't done what dozens of humane societies have done all over the country: work to get stricter animal welfare laws. In some cities chaining a dog out is illegal. And in many, the laws regarding neglect are much stronger than they are here. That happened in those other cities because humane society leaders cared enough to make it happen.
