Re: “Hitting the Wall

More Fake hate crimes on the rise more likely.

Hint ...If you're going to fake a Neo-Nazi Hate crime on yourself it would help to draw a Nazi Swastika Correctly.

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

Communist countries don't have heroin problems. It's simply not available there. Heroine is here because the government allows it. Everyone of my friends that started using heroin started on pain medications from doctors that were perscribed or sold on the street. If yo I want your kids safe from heroine. Go raise them in a communist country. It's extreme but changing the system is not as easy as moving somewhere else, that already decided heroine is bad.

Re: “Trumped-up Education

"Could the President-elect's support of school choice trickle down to Spokane?"

Let's hope and pray so.

Go Trump.

By introducing competition into education, we will get better educational results for the thousands of dollars we spend on each and every student in WA.

Re: “Barred from Books

It goes without saying that convicted felons who are currently incarcerated have certain rights that are limited. For heaven's sake, their liberty is taken away by being incarcerated.

On the other hand, this seems a bit of a stretch. It is within their discretion but you never know with prison bureaucracy.

Re: “Young, Troubled Minds

There are no mental health counselors who actually provide services in juvenile detention. They simply screen without providing any help. This article needs fact checking. Juvenile detention isn't some utopia where kids get help that is lacking in the community. They are mentally beaten down. There is no rehabilitation in or out of the system. Kids are funnelled in and optimized to be pipelined into adult prisons.

Re: “A Second Chance

I am curious to know if Mr. Boot is out of prison or not? Additionally, if Mrs. Butler could contact me somehow...

Re: “Shades of Black Lives

The damage caused due to natural disaster in the form of deaths, injuries and losses of property is immense. That requires huge support from everyone, in such situations my friend feel the NGO's support from www.mission-humanitaire-afrique.org is really blissful to the human beings to overcome the trauma and hence she is looking forward to be a part of the human welfare community.

Re: “Unfinished Business

Well maybe the cops did try to cover their tracks. Sure they knew he was dead. Yes the police came when the death by GSW was reported so they knew just as good as death is permanent on earth buy eternal wit God. Lies by the Staties is what lead to this death and mis-use of one's position (law enforcement) continues. This could have been a person stopped for a traffic violation forced to do the same task as Isaish. You take the job in law enforcement get training then force ,trick and mandatevthat others do YOUR JOB for little or no pay just some jacked up promise. Get GOD. Hey LMD1 nobody here on earth is perfect other than ypu,right. I'm out.

Re: “Unforgiven

I am amazed at the critical perspectives and judgmental comments people make about felons or the failures of others. It is like they are in denial of their own imperfections and potential to make a choice that may inadvertently cast the same stigma on their "good name."
I made a stupid choice many years ago while going through a very difficult divorce and hanging out with coworkers at Pepsi to try an illicit substance. I went from the lowest point in my life to feeling amazing; leading to a series of stupid choices and a series of felony convictions. I make no excuses for myself. I chose to use. I didn't however choose to be an addict. Lot's of people drink and never become alcoholic. Many use illicit substances and never become addicted. Some of us are predisposed/genetically vulnerable to the disease. Similar to type 2 diabetes. Poor choices led to the disease, but not everyone that makes poor life choices concerning health develop the disease. The disease of addiction leads to a form of insanity. Nobody in their right mind wake up in the morning and say to themselves, "I think I'll go to jail today, or lose my kids," but faced with those potential consequences, they use/drink anyway. That's insanity. I am appalled at the bad things I did during my active addiction "using" days.
I have worked hard for change. I am not what I did. I even became a licensed CD counselor to help those struggling with substance use so they don't follow my footsteps. Now Washington is progressively legislating my license away. I am working way below my skillset because of my past. My crimes have nothing to do with my work abilities, yet it was dishonest and others were adversely affected by my behaviors then. I wouldn't take a paperclip from work, so to speak today, regardless of what I did then. I just find it hypocritical that restrictions continue to be emposed so broadly and the stigma is still so prevalent in this day of progressive thinking and tolerance. I try to educate in hopes that people will understand and start looking for solutions rather than judging the problem and the people that have it. 12-15 percent of society have the disease of addiction and isn't it interesting that the percentage of people in prison is the same.
I do want to caution people that before they label felons as "scumbags," they understand that they are one choice away from judging themselves.

Re: “Unfinished Business

Isn't it a little weird that this happened, "On May 31, two days after Isaiah died, Josh texts again: "Wednesday going to work?" If they are thinking the cops shot him...why send a text two days later after he's dead? Either the cops were trying to throw everyone off their trail off in being involved OR they had no clue he was dead so they weren't involved. I think you;re all missing the picture here that this was a TRAPPED kid. He didn't have the means to just take off and run. If he continued he would have been killed by the drug dealers sooner or later. They're not stupid. OR the cops would have thrown him in prison on trumped up charges because....THEY can do that. Jerks. So I totla see him ending his life. This whole story is a tragedy in itself. But the message is clear DON'T DO DRUGS!!! But with a jail bird father...and a mother who's out for her own pleasure and not there half the time or more (!) for her kids, what do you expect? I'm sorry if some of you don't like me stating the truth...but it is what's WRONG with this world with parents just not being there for their children and teaching them right from wrong and how to be STRONG and their own person in the face of scumbag peers who would try to get them involved in drugs. I stand by my words.

Re: “The Scourge of Fake News

"Just a guess. But Colbert and the Daily Show are satirical comedy shows that have never once claimed to be actual news. Unfortunately people without a like of common sense don't seem to know the difference."

"....Without a like of common sense..."

Oh Barb, you need to proof read better.....otherwise your comment loses credibility.

I have to wonder if you would be so animated if liberal wags were focusing their humor at the expense of any Democrat. Just like the New York Times, liberal clowns are very biased against Republicans; despite the vast oceans of obvious material about democrats.

Re: “Unfinished Business

Thank you so much for all the encouraging and supportive messages. We have wonderful people in our area and I'm thankful for all the good hearts out there.
I'm Thankful for so much.
Keep me in your prayers as I trudge on in my journey to raise awareness and get the info out on all the teens were losing to murder or suicide due to police using them as informants.
Please check out Rachel's Law and contact anybody you can who can help protect our youth from this heartless self-glorifying practice.
Thank you,
Isaiahs proud momma

Re: “'Trust But Don't Verify'

Someone should look into any connected corruption in the other systems, courts, CPS. There are some social workers with past marital ties to these officers. Hmm. How deep does it go. What other systems has trust been lost.
