Re: “Friends and family of slain man push for the release of video evidence

I know Jack Rogers......He is an older gentleman of value and integrity who only reacts when intruded or imposed upon. He is kind and considerate, and not the character as alleged by the article in the Independent..........there is a growing number of supporters of Jack, who are tired of the injustices put upon good citizens like him.

There is a possibility of a protest against the overly aggressive family and friends of Jesse Garcia. Garcia brought his demise upon himself, and individuals like him should not be allowed to intimidate and harass weak elderly citizens.

This is not an issue of color....shame on Garcia and his family and friends pretending this is an issue of color...it is a matter of breaking the law. Law breakers like Garcia cannot be condoned in our society. May God have mercy on him and his family.......

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

Even Jesse's mother feels the investigation fair, and recognizes that her son had his faults. Even a racist has the right to defend himself when being attacked.

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

Let's assume there are only two ways to get the area re-developed:
1. A city effort of any sort that requires taxpayer approval for funding.
2. Sell it ALL to Mr. Jenkins and let him build something.

Since a majority of voters usually vote NO on any tax hike then we'll never see anything done to fix that area if the city has to pay for it.

So, give it all to Mr. Jenkins and let him invest HIS funds to build SOMETHING, else we'll never get anything done. Voting majority in COLO SPGS care only about themselves, has no civic pride, and will cut off its nose to spite its face.

Re: “Jenkins wants more from Utilities

Jenkins always wants more, and as always he is looking for others to pay for it. Stop the freeloading and corporate welfare scams Mr. Jenkins, you are a burden on all the honest folks that have to pay for your greed.

Re: “Trial set for "Sit/Lie" protesters

The judge has it wrong: the protest was on a public sidewalk, most definitely a public forum, and it was protesting a public policy, which is political by nature, so First Amendment trumps.

Re: “CSPD to beef up patrol

Still the wrong approach. Beefing up patrols means zero except increasing fuel costs and writing more traffic tickets.

The better way is to keep them in the station house and respond like the Fire Department. It's just as fast, maybe even faster.

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

Just vote NO. D-11's solution of centralization won't work as that kind of solution never does. They spend too much on overhead and administration and that's why they're short of funds.

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

It's hard loving in another state but knowing Jesse and who he really is. This 80 year old man first should have had his gun in a holster no out and about. Second if you seen him walk toward your car or have confirmation with you why didn't Rodgers just leave or pull off. Thirdly how come he lied and said he didn't know him but yet did and had conflicts with Jesse before. This man is getting away with a lot. So what if his daughter is sleeping or married to the DA, there should always be a fair trial. My question is, if this was a black man who shot a young white man would the case be thrown out too? No. So where's the justice. We will keep fighting for Jesse's Justice until we get what we deserve which is putting this 80 year old man in prison.

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

Don't forget Jack is a retired officer and has family in the colorado springs police department. Office Rogers is also dating his daughter and had possession of the video first ....

Re: “Trial set for "Sit/Lie" protesters

So, evidently this law is no longer being enforced? Recently, we were cycling along Cascade, past the downtown library, and I noticed several people lying on the sidewalk in front of the library.

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

There are many rationales for running over cyclists and surely these motorists can justify their violence and the constabulary explain away their indifference, especially around San Antonio, where I reside and bike presently. That fat tub of polluted lard featured in the photo in the article is typical of the wormy cowards who hide behind sheet metal or menace little women with bats. I am 58 and have cycled all my life, even been hit from behind by a car. But the modern temprement of bumbling meannes is something quite unnerving. I am now resolved to confront such belligerence with the stamina the Lord has provided me, and should a pin-penus like that slob ever approach me I taking him on and sending one of us to Glory, or in his case, bat-up-rectum to the basement hot place.

Re: “City inspectors watch contractors to be sure road projects are done right

I HATE chip seal! it's hell on bicycle tires, it actually creates more friction and reduces tire life and fuel efficiency, and it's a really poor substitute for doing it right.

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

I used to ride on the open road in Texas. I've been threatened by excessively close calls, flipped more than one truck driver off, and even got off my bike and prepared to kick butt until the offender decided that he didn't want a piece of me after all. When I rode one particular stretch I actually carried my WWII M1A1 slung across my back...nobody got close on those rides.

Not much will help if you happen to be taken down by a mountain lion (happened recently), but license numbers, formal complaints and, yes, open carry seem to work pretty well.
