Re: “Rich Man, Poor Men

I had a nice little comment here. Oh free speech, with defenders like the Inlander, no wonder you aren't around anymore. The moronic staff here will glorify Madonna threatening to "blow up the whitehouse" and yet will shirk at a tidbit of well placed--and well deserved--profanity. I am so glad the adults are in charge.... :D

Re: “No Feds Here

"Hanson says what students are asking for is already practiced in many cases. Federal privacy laws already limit information colleges can share, and most campus police don't ask about a student's immigration status."

This statement nicely frames this sort of "activism" as meaningless. If these tender snowflakes are able to bestow the word "sanctuary" to their campus they will have accomplished nothing as this is "already practiced in many cases"; and, of which I would love to know of a specific instance on the campus where this sort of activity would have changed anything at all; changed anything except for that golden calf of the self-righteous activist types, their "awareness," which is better summed up as doing the least one can do without doing nothing at all. It is adorable to watch these tender hearted folk get together, accomplish nothing, and then feel good about it. Isn't that just perfectly emblematic of our "everyone gets a trophy" society?

Moreover, these acts of "activism"--where symbolism is counted as an accomplishment--seem to discount the fact that the federal government can do anything--ANYTHING!--it wants to these institutions and they will have no recourse except to close. The University is so rife with subsidized student loans and grants that the mere act of threatening to remove federal accreditation will make these high-minded snowflakes do anything that their master desires. Which is, I portend, why we see these sorts of meaningless displays of "activism"! We see them and experience them as accomplishments in order to maintain the fiction that these snowflakes have any discretion at all, for if Uncle Sam comes calling, and he is carrying the stick of federal funding, you would see such a cacophony of sycophantic apologetics for the "need" to enforce federal law that this same crowd could easily be persuaded to join that consensus. They literally are not guided by reason, which is ironic, given that they are suppose to be in the University learning such things.

Sleep well--oh tender hearted--because the pendulum of tyranny swings away from you, like in the clock, it will swing back and truth nor reason nor appeals to civilization itself will relinquish the sloven from acting out thier wickedness when their turn comes. Alas, the pendulum seems as if it will swing back and forth forever and our only destiny as humans is to watch its carnage and feel the pain of it swinging to and thro, between tyrants, without ever gracing the people who grind under its weight with the virtue of freedom. Freedom, we are told, will be the pendulum coming back to 'our' partisan so as to make their enemies suffer. Such freedom defies the name!

Re: “The Other Washington

Rep. Marcus Riccelli (3rd District): Name a highway, track child fitness, and address income discrimination for renters

...He's also introduced a bill to require school districts already required to mandate 100 minutes of physical education a week in grades K-8 to actually report details on how they're doing it back to the state.

Marcus...Really?? How much a kid weighs or how many sits up a child can or cannot do, is none of your business. Maybe we should track your personal life habits?

Re: “Patients and Prisoners

Its a great place to stick people if they see an officer involved death of a fifteen year old Ryan Holy, as they attempted to say Joseph Bodman never struck him for a year and a half. Its a terrifying place when your not crazy like Im not, as there is so very sick and dangerous people there. I know I was there, and thank God everyday they had a phycologist Dr. Brooks England Phd. who actually did her job. Once a label has been stuck on your screwed.

Re: “'Why Aren't They Digging?'

Law enforcement personnel (LEP) should be under the same scrutiny as if law enforcement was not involved in a shooting. This is a more serious case of the investigation not given the same scrutiny as others would have. Another case of a LEP getting off easier is when an officer in Idaho was over .20 bac in her private vehicle and ended up in a ditch. She got the same fine as others got as well as classes, but she kept her license and job. This is the same person that would be giving citations. I don't agree that all are bad, but there are cases that are. I have been given a break on a couple instances that were minor. They should be setting the example though.

Re: “Fighting Words

Mayor David Condon, Could You Imagine Your Child Being Hit By A Cop Car and Being Told He Just Fell Off His Bike?

Have you seen the picture of the face of Ryan Holyk after he got to the hospital? I spent seven minutes with the night of May 23, 2014.

The blow Ryan's head recieved caused so much bleeding the pooling blood wasn't allowing him to get air, as his face rested on the payment. I knew he would soon drown.

I told Charlie Price, I had to do something and chanced turning Ryan's head. I used my fingers and then a corner of a bar towel to scoop out a mass of blood and mucus so large. The bland taste of bone marrow hung in the air.

I have been forever changed by those seven minutes. I believe it was a miracle that Ryan ever regained consciousness, answering his mother's prayer that he would awake and know who she was.

Ryan was allowed to say goodbye and know what happened to him as he had no memory of seeing the car that struck him. Sometimes we only get a delay in what was to be, and not the reprieve from death that we hoped for.

God allowed me that part of my prayer that night as I looked up to heaven and asked God to help me make it better. I knew I couldn't ask for Ryan to live he was hurt so badly.

I told Ryan there was a God hoping my words and touch could reach him through pain and darkness he felt after his face was impacted by the corner of the bumper at sixty miles an hour.

The Community of Spokane and Spokane Valley held vigil hoping for a greater miracle that would never be. Others with darkness in their heart conspired to create an obstruction of justice under a dark color of law, hoping to hide the truth.

They violated a communities civil rights in the process, and hid material facts from Ryan family, Deputy Joseph Bodman, and every man woman and child of the City of Spokane and Spokane Valley.

Ryan was called home his injury too grievous, and way to young for those who knew and loved him to spend eternity with God.

Lord hear my prayer, help make this better as it's so wrong in so many ways. Help me make his better by learning the truth of how so many things went wrong, and how we can keep this from happening again.

When does an accident become a crime? When people lie and mislead and criminally interfere in a conspiracy to obstruct justice.

If you allow this practice of lying to protect from tort, over public safety, accountability, and civil rights, without stepping up and saying truth matters more than limiting liability. Your perpetuating a crime after the fact, and assume your own culpability and shame.

What's it going to take before you step up and demand truth and accountability, having your own child killed when they could have been spared? Shame on you all who knew the truth, but hid behind a lie.

It's just not right.

Re: “'Hookerville' Revisited

Looking forward to seeing the pedestrian bridge completed. It will have tremendous benefits to both E Sprague and the U District.

Re: “'Why Aren't They Digging?'

Whether a court of law ever disposes this Lesser-man as such, we can all agree that he is a murderer. Court's of "law" tend to enforce that mission rather meekly when swine are under the yoke, I wish this family luck. Justice would be Lesser-man selling his house to pay for legal bills, I hope they go after him personally.

Re: “'It Shouldn't of Happened'

My bad ---- it was one of NIC's genius rapists who used the phrase "shouldn't of happened." Hope those guys get what's coming to them.

Re: “Pardon Me

Oh blessed are we who are confined to the yoke of leviathan. Let us all be prostrate to thee. Let us marvel in thy forgiveness and mercy. Let us enjoy the blessings that leviathan has betrothed to us all and let us bow to the infinite wisdom of our one true god, the State--peace be upon its name. Amen!

Re: “Lifting All Boats?

muddydog - so along with the increased minimum wage there should be a mandate protecting workers from getting hours cut, and a mandate of fair distribution of profits as the higher ups often make way more than needed or deserved. Also, more people earning disposable income means more stimulation of the economy. That's a pretty basic principle you are leaving out

It is horrible Otto Zehm died. There are plenty of cases that should outrage people such as a child being removed from a home a year and nine months ago and the Court figured out CPS was right the whole time. There was no abuse. How does that happen?
