Re: “Sheriff's Office's "fight club" results, and two inmates deaths

Fight Club? Reynolds was found unresponsive by another inmate (not sure any other inmates had something to with it considering Reynolds child abuse charge) the other was being transported back to jail from the hospital when the officer noticed he was in distress. Not sure how these two incidents correlate to a couple deputy's vying for the most "use of force" incidents? In typical DNC-style news stories, its blame now ask questions (i.e. discover the facts) later.

Re: “Studies show link between behavior and diet

Well, there is a definite link between foods and behavior--just look at excitotoxins.

Maybe they ought to lace the inmate food with Valium--kinda hard to be violent when you're asleep all the time...

Re: “El Paso County inmates say new jail contractor serves inadequate food

They're inmates, which means that they are not deserving of what they consider to be "good food". If they wanted good food, they they shouldn't have landed their butts in jail in the first place.

They ought to be lucky that they aren't getting Hawkeye Pierce's "river of liver and ocean of fish." Or Soylent Green.

Re: “El Paso County inmates say new jail contractor serves inadequate food

Boohoo. Supposed to be jail. A reminder that you dont want to come back. Sheriff Elder is running his agency efficiently despite constant cuts to law enforcement. You should be pleased with his ability to work within a tight budget and saving law abiding tax payers money.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Regardless of what this page's resident Trump licking troll sez, it doesn't negate the fact that Lamborn is the quintessential greed driven myopic Republican Koch whore and fits perfectly into the mindset of our "little Bavaria".

Re: “Addressing poverty on the Springs' Southeast side

Patience,

I appreciate the fact that in your article you also mentioned about Denver Works opening a satellite office in Sand Creek Lbrary. I live in the southeast area of town and every day I see hard working people who really do need work apprenticeship programs.

I also love the fact that Foid Rescue is helping lower economic situations have healthy fresh choices for food and it debunks the myth and stereotype that people in poverty don't want to eat well.

Thanks for the article

Re: “Promise Lee on what's next for Hillside community

Patience,

Thank you for writing such s great article and indeed highlighting one of the city's great community leaders. I so agree with Promise Lee's perspective on community coming alongside each other to bring positive change and awareness of community issues. Thank you again and many thanks to Mr. Promise Lee for his continued leadership in the community of Colorado Springs and beyond.

Re: “Promise Lee on what's next for Hillside community

Thank you for this piece.

It really has me thinking. What are the lessons learned from the closure of South that we can act on now with the closure of Hunt? Is it possible to ameliorate the hurt, displacement and overall value statement that closing a community school creates?

I like the strategies around community organizing that Lee shares.

How can we strengthen some of the existing infrastructure that has already been established? What is the state of the newsletter? Is this something to resurrect? Who are the former and current block captains? How can we retain the existing captains and recruit new captains?

What will it take? Who can help?

Re: “City needs, after the march, a crappy cover, and more

Thats true Dave when there was a hand full of States and a few thousand people they thought it was the best way to go. And it was. But now that theres 50 States and millions that need to have a voice the way we have it now in my opinion is the best. If we stayed a true Republic only a hand full would have a voice. LIKE CHINA. But we are a Democratic Republic with Representation. My vote is my voice.

Re: “City needs, after the march, a crappy cover, and more

There has been a dichotomy expressed by Trump supporters that a nation cannot be both a democracy and a republic.-- Bill Durland

Technically true. A republic and a democracy, even a representative democracy, are not the same things.

Republics are rule by law, are always representative, and have an executive position which is not a monarch.

Democracies are rule by vote, can be direct or representative, and do not have an executive position.

The US is a Republic, albeit with some democratic principles, specifically we are a Constitutional Federal Republic. We are not, despite the fervent assertions of many, a representative democracy. In fact the founding fathers specifically did not want a democracy.

Re: “El Paso County inmates say new jail contractor serves inadequate food

Asher, is it your job to blow every CSIndy story out of proportion? If you're not Sheriff Maketa with a different user name you might actually have what it takes to become Chief Editor at the Independent; since they enjoy blowing everything out of context (proportion, i.e. Trump).

Re: “El Paso County inmates say new jail contractor serves inadequate food

Sorry, but this story reads as sour grapes from Aramark over losing their long-term deal. It would be wise to keep the prison population well-fed in order to reduce their overall angst, but you shouldn't lose sight of the fact that this is a jail and not a resort.

Re: “Colorado Springs attorney admits converting clients' money to his own use

This is the second big story involving lawyers (see past articles on Terry Malcom). It seems like the profession as whole and state legislatures needs to implement some rules that prohibit lawyers from taking custody of client money. Really they should not have to touch client money.
