Re: “Undercover officers take the stand to explain infiltration of local Socialists

history is repeating itself - during the late 50s and throughout the 60s the fbi infiltrated groups that threatened the status quo - the purpose was to discredit and disrupt any challenges to the establishment. today we have a republican party that declares open class warfare with its tax cuts for the rich and a democrat party that seems satisfied with claiming a moral high ground thus providing the people with justifiable reason to pursue political parties which are the only opposition party in town therefore the state can be exhibited to use the same tactics as were used by cointelpro of the 60s. firing these officers is the tip of the iceberg.

Re: “Undercover officers take the stand to explain infiltration of local Socialists

Hey Metro VNI Lt. Mark Comte - This "mark" of yours, as many undercover cops do, tried to entrap members of this group by suggesting violence and trying to get protestors to act out.

I say these 3 cops need to be fired!

Re: “Venetucci Farm's future up in the air

What on earth has happened to the Pikes Peak Community Foundation? I knew there was a change in leadership, but did not realize that meant a change in mission, too. It sounds a bit like Trump coming in intent to undo any and all things accomplished by Obama..... it shouldnt be that controversial to value land preservation, organic farming, good food and CSAs. The foundation is very short on vision.....

Re: “Undercover officers take the stand to explain infiltration of local Socialists

There is no reason to send in undercovers. An undercover was also placed into the crowd of a rally. A rally where threats were made toward the groups and people organizing. That cop acted like a distributor in audience. He was there in his bicycle helmet to try to make the crowd take a hateful turn.

Hey CSPD the threats that come in toward groups and individuals planning protests didn't get investigated but you 'infiltrate' groups looking to march. Go stop the gang activity! I thanked officers for keeping us safe during a march and one silver haired officer reacted with such disgust in his face. Get rid of that angry officer. I bet the CSPD hasn't 'infiltrated' the Proud Boyz nazi 3% meetings.

Let us not forget the most important part of this whole story, these women are out there at Gardner's office fighting for our rights to health care while he fights to take it away! Everyone should be standing up thanking them and helping them every step of the way!

Re: “El Paso County Retirement Plan mulls request for extra retiree payment

REALLY??? Try being a low wage employee that will only get $1000 a month in social security benefits after working over 30 years here in the low wage paying Colorado Springs. These City/ State employees are so fortunate to get $18K a year in benefits, when so many other hard working full time employees wont get nearly as much. I worked as a Professional Photographer without any medical or paid leave for 7 years with a local business that barely would pay a living wage before being terminated to cut her employee budget since I was one of the highest paid employees under management at $9 an hour in 1997 so she could sell her photo lab business at a better equity rate .

On my current job, I barely get a raise every year and it hasn't kept up with the cost of living for the past 5 years. And if you couldn't afford to buy your own home when prices were low, the rent on a one bedroom apartment is now more than my mortgage on my two bedroom home. Maybe if Former Mayor Bach didn't give away millions to his buddies to retire, there would be more in the city budget to give you a raise. Good Luck with that!

Really? How can anyone retire on around $18,000 a year? I never realized it was that bad!!!

Re: “Tyler Walker added to 'Brady list'

Any reason why the list can't be published with the article? Would be nice to know how many on the list are still working in law enforcement!!!

Re: “Tyler Walker added to 'Brady list'

The cop should have the same think happen to his daughter, wife or mother (unless he already has done it to them himself) and every other cop on that floor should have this happen to their own family members. What no one seems to understand is that these pieces of crap are so out of control and except for surveillance held unaccountable for their actions They are immune to prosecution....look it up. As outlined by the Supreme Court in Harlow v. Fitzgerald, 457 U.S. 800 (1982), qualified immunity is designed to shield government officials from actions "insofar as their conduct does not violate clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known". The problem is proving it. The government has made it difficult to tear down these walls called immunity because it favors them also, the prosecuters, the judges, any public official. The only reason this woman was not raped as she lay on the floor bleeding was because of the video camera's. Cops love hiding behind that Thick Blue Line and it has to stop. Remember, that could be your wife, daughter or mother lying on that floor and maybe there won't be a video camera recording them for their safety.

Re: “T.R. Reid is still fighting for universal health care, along with groups across the country

Keeping/bearing arms is Constitutionally protecting by the 2nd amendment. Healthcare has no such protections, either federal or state. "Universal Healthcare" is a socialistic/communistic mindset with no place to lawfully or legally happen on this land of the United States of America. I completely refuse/reject that offer of contract!

Re: “Drake power plant shutdown costs estimated

I've been watching an orchestrated war on the poor/homeless for about 2-decades. The situation with Drake is a large part of that war. Perry Sanders (billionaire) wants Drake eliminated yesterday (reported in the Gazette around 2012). Those in his circles have no problem with a rate increase, or electrical controls that favor the wealthy. I'm beyond wore-out of the wrong folk running things. The increasing dilemma is this is going on nation-wide.
I thank Yahweh/YHVH for judging this system, in the name of Yeshua, Amen!

Re: “Springs Police consider reviving photo enforcement against red light runners

Simply do not contest it or send money. The camera will keep quiet and refuse to identify you as the driver. in fact the camera won't say anything. No witnesses or evidence (the camera was actually working correctly?) leaves only the hope you show up with the photo and then you will be intimidated into ponying up $75.
Imagine, someday a camera can send you to a private prison without a trial because there will be mandatory minimums but maybe you can make a deal and provide photos of other people appearing to be speeding or jaywalking. But to whom?
Curious to know the last time they had red light cameras how many captured on film the deadly collisions?
How many places are eliminating traffic signals completely and finding that collisions stopped and traffic flowed much more smoothly since people had to start watching out for their own asses for a change? If public safety is what they really want then try it. If it is cash they want then keep up the good work and the bad roads. And why is it when I travel the posted speed limit cars bunch up behind me? Doesn't make me feel too safe.

Re: “The mass eviction at Emerald Towers Apartments is just the tip of the iceberg

Even at Greccio, your gross monthly income has to be 3 TIMES the rent youre paying in order to qualify for their housing assistance. That means for that so-called affordable rent of $1,100/month, you need to be grossing $3,300/month. Even for a single person, if they found you a place for $700/month youd need to be making $2,100/month to be qualified. Impossible with the low-wage jobs here (average pay for an Executive/Administrative Assistant is $12-$13/hour. Thats if you have a college degree and some experience. If youre working as a 7-11 clerk, at minimum wage, forget it). Supposedly their waitlist is over a year long. What are people who fall under that limit supposed to do?
