While Mr. Bruce is entitled to his opinion, I'm thankful that most people don't feel that way. My granddaughter might not have been found in time if not for the help of concerned citizens. Thanks to all of the people involved in finding her.

The best part of all of this is that Libtard Pam Zubeck probably believed that her article would make the police department look bad. She is notorious for writing articles against the police. Oops Pammy, that backfired!! Great job Chief!!!

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs police chief to Douglas Bruce: You're 'obnoxious'

I am a former CSPD Officer and met Chief Carey once. I found him to be warm, personable and VERY professional. I was also proud that he was the representative head of the department I served between 1972-80. Chief Carey was right on target with his comment to Mr. Bruce and he deserves the public and council's continued support.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs police chief to Douglas Bruce: You're 'obnoxious'

Took me all of a minute to Google this for Mr. Bruce (don't know if he has Android or iPhone, so here is both)...now he doesn't have to be inconvenienced:

How to control AMBER and Government Alerts on your iPhone
- Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Tap on Notification Center and scroll all the way to the bottom.
- Under the Government Alerts section, toggle the AMBER Alerts or Government Alerts option on or off to enable or disable them.

To disable emergency alerts in stock Android,
- Head to Settings, click on the More option under the Wireless & Networks section,
- Scroll down to the Cell Broadcasts settings.
- you will be given the option to disable extreme threats, severe threats, and Amber Alerts.

I have not lived in the Springs for 25 years, and yet I know of Doug Bruce. He is a pompous ass. Anyone who objects to Amber Alerts just got put on Santa's Permanent Naughty List. AttaMAN, Chief Carey!!!

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs police chief to Douglas Bruce: You're 'obnoxious'

The email timestamp would be GMT, which would correspond to 3:22 MDT. And absolutely no sympathy for Bruce the Douche.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs police chief to Douglas Bruce: You're 'obnoxious'

Chief Carey was my boss for many many years. I have always thought the world of him as a person and my boss. Chief Carey has always called it the way it is. And that is so true with this memo....... could not ask for a better police chief!!!!! Doug Bruce is an absolute idiot moron that has done nothing but destroy our city....... Chief, please keep up the good work...... I absolutely love being retired so I can say things that are true and heartfelt...

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs police chief to Douglas Bruce: You're 'obnoxious'

The police chief's email response to Bruce - "Your complete lack of care, concern and compassion for anyone but yourself fits perfectly with your obnoxious and bullying personality." - was itself bullying and OBNOXIOUS. The police chief needs to be told by his superior - the mayor - that responding thus to a citizen is unacceptable and if typical of his response to citizens will be grounds for investigating his fitness to continue in this position.

And WHY is this petty personality email exchange considered to be newsworthy?

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs police chief to Douglas Bruce: You're 'obnoxious'

So - Bruce sent the emails to the Independent hoping to drum up some sympathy and support. Hmmm, looks like that backfired brilliantly. #epic_fail

Way to go Chief Carey!What a perfect response. We could use more quality, strong willed leadership in public service that is willing to stand for what is right. Nice work.

Chief Carey put himself high on the "will never have to buy his own beer ever again" list with this one.

Why was (sic) placed after sentient? Is that not the correct spelling?

Re: “John Venezia Park to open in Briargate

A $ 13 Million Park in Briargate, in John's Honor would make him laugh and then feel a sense of Joy over the
realization that it all (Briargate) succeeded so wonderfully well. His vision and confidence in the Future
of Colorado Springs, made John Venezia a lynch-pin for development in the late 1970's and now he is
remembered with a lovely City Park to celebrate recreation and family.

Thanks to the Park Dept, and John !
