Re: “El Paso County GOP to auction AR-15's at fundraising dinner

Good for Betty Field, calling them out! You dont raise funds for dead officers by shopping around more machines of death. This just shows how Gun crazy the Republican Party has become, sadly they are lock-step with the NRA. Meanwhile our streets run red from all the innocent blood spilled from the GOPS gun love, sad......

Re: “Alleged intimidation cases by Sheriff's Office scrapped

Personally I dont understand why their complaints werent directed to the El Paso County Republican Party...... seems to me that they are responsible for enforcing the rules at their own county assembly. It was never a police matter...... bad blood in the Sheriffs Dept. Seems to drive such dysfunction!

Re: “CDOT survey finds lots of people are driving while stoned

What the media often fails to mention in their reporting is that traffic fatalities are increasing nation-wide, this is not a Colorado problem and not related to legalization of marijuana in Co. Fact is that every state shows increases in traffic deaths, and most are blaming distracted driving using Cell phones, texting and driving etc. In Colorado a case could be made that growth has caused the volume of traffic on Colo. roads to increase dramatically, leading to more accidents. That is certainly plausible.

Re: “Secretary of State Office investigated for official misconduct

Good! No elected official could be more corrupt than Williams. This is why I am supporting Jena Griswold for Secretary of State in November. She is an honest person, who will do what it takes to keep elections free of partisanship and open to all voters.

Re: “ACLU of Colorado wins ICE-related suit against El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder, county appealing

Keep it up, ACLU...... This tells you all you need to know:
His ruling further notes, that El Paso County is one of only two counties in Colorado that currently honor ICE detainer requests. (The other is apparently Adams County.)
El Paso County is in the minority here, and Im guessing they do it to gain revenue and keep the jail full. Good for the ACLU, exposing and challenging the racist practices of our county. Hope they dont waste too much taxpayer money on fruitless appeals......

Re: “Students walked out against gun violence. Let's honor them.

Well said, Indy! And way to go, students. I attended the Walk Out with other community supporters from my church, and was very impressed. Young people, more than any other age group, are most affected by gun violence. Columbine and the Aurora theatre shooting wasted many young lives, and left a hole in the hearts of their loved ones. Proud of you, young people, for taking a stand!
