Re: “Justice Denied

Near Colville when we lived there, a 13 year old girl went missing, it was very sad. She was an amputee and they found her prosthetic leg near a stream. I wonder if that case is still open.

Re: “Trial by Fire

This is a fabulously well-written piece of news writing. Thank you, Jacob, for giving us a window onto the effects of this devastating fire.

Re: “Fatal Decisions

Jed was a decorated combat vet and a great young man. He was a loyal friend and a funny guy. He also was troubled, probably suffering from PTSD, and he had been royally screwed out of benefits because of a technical paperwork snafu. On the day he died he made a mistake, and it cost him his life. He didn't deserve to die, and he didn't need to be treated as an enemy combatant in the moments before his death. The police and the prosecutor can conclude that his shooting was legally justified, but that sure as hell doesn't mean it was morally just. He deserved better treatment than he got through most of his life. RIP, soldier.

Re: “Dog Town

Hey Ted McGregor, I like dogs as much as anybody, but honest to God, hasn't this story been beaten to death? Is it really possible that poverty, crime, drugs, homelessness, etc in the Inland Northwest have magically disappeared and there are no other stories to do?.

Re: “Dog Town

If your to stupid to be a criminal, or like perpetuating blood thirsty outrageous violence on innocent family pets, then you qualify for a job at Coeur d'Alene police department...
The day will come soon, when 12 jurors representing the outrage of the American public, will dispense justice and teach those responsible that there will be a heavy price to pay for ignorance and the recklessness slaughter of our four legged children.

Re: “Dog Town

I used to live in N Idaho, and am now a Colorado resident. Believe me, dog deaths by cop aren't any better here, nor most anywhere else in this country. Police seem to have become more authoritative, trigger happy, using lethal force where a taser or pepper spray would suffice. This may be a sign of the times or something worse.

Re: “Rideshare Rumble

Boomer sounds like a real idiot. People use Lyft and Uber's APP, not website. So buying domains that nobody is going to anyway and then redirecting them to his dumbass site won't do diddlysquat for him. Nice job at staying irrelevant, idiot.

Re: “Crowded Out

Shame on all the staff and professionals that participated or stood by and allowed patients to be abused in this way. Shame on our government and our Washington representatives for cutting this vital funding. Their priorities are an embarrassment. They don't deserve their seat if they place such low value on human dignity. I'm ashamed to be a taxpayer in Washington and I'm ashamed of my fellow humans.

Re: “Church and State

Re the speaker at the Cheney Middle school: that's a ballsy response from principal Stark to Horton. Most institutional responses are along the lines of "we regret this misunderstanding and will review our procedures going forward." If I were a parent, I wouldn't be pushing for more. I would be thanking the stars that CMS has a leader who is unafraid.

Re: “What Didn't Happen

Money didn't matter. Something to remember the next time you hear/read/ see somebody have a hissy fit over the Citizens United decision from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Re: “Swift Hand of Justice

This plea AND having Tom Krzyminski head up the PD's office are good things for us all.

Re: “'Veto Proof'

I think this article doesn't quite emphasize enough that Stephen Yates won the IDGOP chair only because the Idaho "liberty" faction supported him. You would think that a man that was a member of Dick Cheney's foreign policy team, then a senior advisor to the Rudy Giuliani 2008 campaign, then a member of what Business Insider magazine called "Newt's Neocon Army" would have trouble getting support from former Ron Paulers.

Re: “Manager or Activist?

Of all the beliefs that Rob Chase holds, he seems to be taking the most grief for supporting Moves to Amend, and I can't for the life of me see why that should be.

Re: “Resorting to Force

PLEASE remember this:
"Capt. David Richards and other supervisors filed complaints, arguing that the use of a vehicle to stop a subject could be
considered deadly force — triggering an Internal Affairs investigation."

SPD has good cops who hold each other accountable and who "Serve & Protect" our community with honor.

Re: “The Challengers

I can find reasons to support both Mager & Johnson, which is going to be a problem for other voters too and likely return French for another 4 years of "slippery" corporate supported shenanigans.

Re: “Long Odds

Yeah, spend 7 paragraphs talking about Joe PAkootas, who is not even really campaigning.

If the Inlander actually ever listened to the challengers at a forum, they'd realize he isn't worth writing about. If Pakootas gets 2nd in the primary, he will lose, and lose badly.

Wilson is a much better candidate, and although one-issue voters may not agree with one or two particular stances he takes, he overall represents a much more balanced approached to governing, which we need right now.

The Spokesman WANTED to endorse Wilson but felt they were forced to endorse McMoRo. The Inlander, however, appears to not have a clue what's going on.

Re: “Room for Compromise

T$ is right. The sharing economy is the future. Municipalities can try to put a lid on it, but ultimately people will prevail.
