By the headline, I thought this article would be about the homeless and transients.

Re: “City says "no" to firefighters' pursuit of ballot measure

frank1946 must be a corporate lackey. You know, the ones that exploit employees. He is a real fan of slave labor and unsafe work conditions. He was probably management at the twinkie factory. You know, the ones who were giving themselves bonuses, and using the employee pension fund to pay for operating expenses. The union employees tried to save the company, and management pocketed the concessions they gave to keep the company running.

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

"If equipment (uniforms, guns, tasers and body armor) is factored in, one recruit guessed the bill at about $200,000."

Do the recruits get to take their gun, taser, and body armor with them when they leave? I doubt it, so just sensationalizing for reaction?

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: “Fountain police officer cleared in shooting

It would have been nice of her to inform the cop that her son had a firearm.
