Re: “Why real news is so important

"I admit, I feared #metoo would go the way of the ice-bucket challenge, with a sudden burst of attention that quickly faded. Thats not the case."

Sorry, but it's already fading. Not because people don't care about sexual harassment, but because people find it utterly ridiculous to wait 10, 15 or 20 years and then suddenly you are so upset you want to report it. Heck, the statute of limitations for most felonies in Colorado is 3 years. And you want us to do something about someone patting your butt 15 years ago? Sorry, but no.

Re: “Police chief's son among four CSPD recruits to wash out after driving test

@Asher777 Pete already has one son at EPSO as a patrol deputy, not a very good one, but he's there nonetheless.

Re: “Memorial Hospital announces new board members

Glad to know that things are going so well at CSPD that Chief Pete Carey has time to work on other projects instead of what he's being paid to do. I guess a reduction in his salary to reflect that is in order.

Re: “

"The last COLA just 2 percent was given in 2005. One-time bonus checks have been given in 1995, 2004, 2006 and 2007. Since then, retirees havent received either a COLA or a bonus payment. Thats why theyre struggling to make ends meet..."

Wow... sounds worse than living on Social Security!

Re: “Ex state GOP chair convicted of voter fraud

What's most interesting about this article is what it doesn't say. While he should be punished for doing what he did, the article doesn't say how the investigation got started in the first place. The do not do DNA and handwriting analysis on every ballot that comes in. So why was it done on his? Was he specifically targeted because of who he is?

You can't tell me he was the only person who did this during the election. But the article is right, he was the only one charged with doing so. Why was nobody else investigated? Kinda makes ya think this investigation was politically motivated, which is also bad.

Re: “UPDATE: Sheriff's Office blocks reporter, Indy responds via attorney

Kudos to Pam for chasing this guy down.

Pam has the protections of law. Elder's deputies don't. Colorado law says they serve "at the pleasure of the Sheriff" and he can terminated them at any time without cause. Bill's behavior as seen in today's article is only the tip of the iceberg in how he treats his employees. You don't agree with him? You are immediately a target. That is why the vast majority of his employees are so afraid to say anything. That is the reason why Maketa went on for so long getting away with his shenanigans. Elder is worse than Maketa.

So, thank you Pam. All of your EPSO employees (ok, sorry, only the honest ones) greatly appreciate your work to expose what is going on. We dearly need to get rid of Elder and get some honest leadership for the Office. Please don't back down. Please stay on this until, like with Maketa, the rest of the media is forced to recognize what you have been saying all along and something gets done!!!
