Re: “County board candidates, potholes, a new police substation, and more

"Manitou police said the fire posed a danger to others." And yet there was 0 victims and no one was harmed. Seems the threat doesn't exist in reality. So, in this conservative county, it's obvious your freedom of speech means nothing if they can charge you for a victimless crime that nothing happened at. Cha-ching. The Law Enforcement in this county is all about the benjamins.

Re: “Big Three want booze monopoly

I am from Oregon. Brewers and distillers co-exist along side chain grocery stores that also sell full strength beer. It's going to be fine. Oh and PacksA9 - just how small is your penis? No one cares about your irrational hatred for all things Obama and your need to carry a gun - or show pictures of one for some dumb reason.

"We gave the Israeli government 1,000-plus nukes, paid for with the blood, sweat and tears of American workers."

Uh...no.

Re: “Big Three want booze monopoly

John help us out. Are you a hypocrite or just ignorant?

"They want the market, and if they can get laws changed, they'll seize it. Independent stores would meet the fate of independent grocers, hardware stores and other Main Street merchants, crushed by giants."

Change stores/retailers to doctors/medicine in your quote and you have Obamacare. I can't wait for your op-ed highlighting the mess Democrats made of health care.

Re: “City defends "dangerous" bike lanes

“However, the cyclist should assess their riding ability and experience before attempting [traveling] on any bike lane with traffic.” Wrong, it's not a question of cyclists ability and experience. No amount of ability will prevent a car from crossing into a bike lane that is too narrow and too close to high speed traffic, and parallel to a wall with no escape. What an irresponsible comment to make! I sincerely hope that it was quoted out of context. Go to this site and witness for yourself car after car crossing into the painted bike lane.

Re: “County board candidates, potholes, a new police substation, and more

"More room for cops" - No wonder this city has no money for fixing potholes or cutting weeds, as they are constantly buy new land at top dollar and selling existing city buildings for pennies on the dollar. Paying 3 times the market value for the land is a sweet deal for the seller, not the taxpayer.

Re: “County board candidates, potholes, a new police substation, and more

"More room for cops" - so, you can't add-on to the existing building? and now that the city is admitting that the current site has drainage problems, your going to try and sell it - probably for a big loss.

Re: “City defends "dangerous" bike lanes

Actually, PacksA9 is half right. We do need to keep cars and bikes separate where the car speeds are over 40-45 mph. Where we differ is the idea that bikes have no right to use the same roadway. Bikes and cars have the same rights to the right of way. The problem is that for our City's Traffic Engineers, bike traffic was a complete afterthought, as is their repeated pattern. There was plenty of space for them to integrate separated bike lanes, but they ignored that mode of transportation until the end of the project and tried to shoehorn in this 'solution' because they realized this was a primary through way between the Academy and UCCS. So glad TOPS is speaking out about this. Thank you!

Re: “Let's rise above violence

American lives matter! Right on Ohio Rep Bill Patmon! (He's a Democrat, by the way)
Rev Carter, you could learn a thing or two from this righteous patriot.

“You hear a lot of demonstrations across the country now about ‘Black Lives Matter. Well they skipped one place. They should be in front of Planned Parenthood.”

“You say, ‘Well, you’re kind of strident, aren’t you?’ I say, ‘No, not when 5,499 abortions are in Cuyahoga County, which I happen to represent, and 63 percent of them are black women,’” Patmon continued.

“It is my business, especially when 17 million of them are black women, 17 million – more than any other population – 17 million that look and act and talk …similar to myself, but even more than that, they’re Americans, and they’re human beings,” Patmon said.

Re: “Case closed

It may very well be that this was a bad shoot; however...

Nothing requires that someone has to shoot first before police can shoot. And unarmed people and people armed with non-firearm weapons can be a very serious threat, one in which the use of lethal force, including shooting, can be allowed. Further, the provision for a warning and chance to comply are situational and not required in all circumstances.

Re: “The unusual death of Alex Quiros

Alex was not suicidal nor at all prone to depression, aggression, or any acts of self harm. There was no breakup with his girlfriend. They were discussing whether they should both move to New York for his graduate studies or whether they would continue the long distance relationship for a few months while his girlfriend did an internship. Alex was excited to be graduating in a few weeks after four long, hard years in the Academy. He was going to spend a few weeks with several other cadets visiting Japan after graduation. Alex was looking at apartments in New York for his first semester at RIT and he sent his girlfriend several links to possible rentals close to campus for her to look at. Alex spent his spring break the week before he died in Washington visiting his girlfriend at her school in Washington. He was excited to be so close to finishing classes and getting his commission. While in Seattle, Alex and his girlfriend shopped for engagement rings. He died 4 days later.

Alex was born on Russia and immigrated to the US as a toddler when his mother married a Costa Rican naturalized American. He still had family in Russia that he kept contact with although he was never allowed a visa to go back and visit. He was accepted into the Air Force Acadmey but was denied security clearance because of where he was born. While classmates were trained around the world in India, Belgium, and Qatar, Alex was always sent to domestic locations for his training without an explanation as to why. Alex's military record at the Acadmey was stellar. Not only were his grades outstanding, he was a well liked and respected leader in his squadron, a volunteer peer mentor, and never had any disciplinary issues in the slightest. He was not high- strung or riddled with anxiety over his school work. Alex was brilliant and responsible and very proud of all he had accomplished. Alex looked forward to continuing on in the Air Force, designing satellite systems, and serving his country. There was never a finer man who wore the cadet uniform than Alex Quiros. Any cadet or friend who knew him will tell you flat out that Alex was not disturbed or stressed out or distraught. No one interviewed the people who knew him best and served by his side at the Academy or his girlfriend to whom he was faithful through high school and college. He was devoted to his mother and younger brother and grateful to his adopted father who brought he and his mother to the US. But a coroner makes the decision based on whatever is the easiest to explain without speaking to anyone who actually knew him and has decided that Alex simply couldn't face life any longer despite the fact that he was a few weeks away from achieving everything he wanted for his life. Ludicrous and sloppy.

Re: “Let's rise above violence

A black man pulled a sharp object, a knife or possibly a razor, and stabbed another man on the NYC subway over an argument about a seat.

Rev Carter - Is this what you mean by chickens roosting?

Re: “City defends "dangerous" bike lanes

There are some roads where bikes just don't belong. The stretch on GOG-AB from Centennial to Stetson Hills is one of them. Laws of physics trump laws of traffic every time.

One thing this piece makes clear is that gov't is better at obstructing than facilitating. Unless its for a self-serving legacy project like C4C (hat tip happyfew).

Re: “CSPD officer arrested

and they should take his retirement pension money as well--this would serve to put all law enforcement on notice that if you do wrong you lose everything--better still give him his gun and one bullet to do the right thing--
