Re: “Desperate Measures

That Jail is devoid of basic human rights, the whole profit motivated incarceration model, as no man hours allocated for providing life support. When out time is void of decent outreach to provide for the mental and physical health of the people this Just-Us system who wouldn’t consider death, over day after day, of no hope, no help, no standing, no advocacy, no treatment, no hope of having a better life? What a sham, to suggest incarceration has anything to do with reform, or public safety for the vast majority of inmates. Treat the incarcerated like human, you never know when you might fall to the accused, you might even see a cop hit a kid doing 74 miles per hour, and then hire a Criminal——-Attorney…Stop the insanity reform now, we use to be better than this.

Light was green, person on Bicycle rode into the crosswalk, saw the vehicle closing in, grounded the bike, and was struck in the head by front of officers vehicle. This person pulled off to left of intersection, as officer pulled off to the right, and came back to the scene. Victims friend was standing by yelling for help. This witness called 911, and stood by until other officers arrived. Victim was bleeding from head/face. Paramedics showed soon, witness tried to keep others from touching victim, or getting aggravated at officer who struck the child.

Waited by as paramedics showed to take over screen. Gave name to officer (indistinguishable) on Phone 911

Re: “UPDATED City of Spokane challenges provision of Workers Bill of Rights initiative in court

I am a downtown business, I am a corporation, I am hard working 'family' provider, I have 2 employees....this initiative will hurt SMALL corporations more so than large ones. It's not just the 'fat cats' that will feel it. This initiative is ridiculous & frivolous - was there not a mention of it conflicting with state & federal laws too? I don't think Condon is disconnected any more than Lichty is.

Shar is dedicated to being a political force for the middle and working clasess! The city knows the people would support the initiative and never wants them to see it as a real option. The city can't let it pass because it would undermind their aristocracy!

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

The whole point of this article is cool and  heroin is some pretty messed up shit that causes some bad things to happen just as what happen with Rachel. The thing I can't stand about this article is that the dude who wrote it when he interviewed me there was so much stuff he left out about how, I Rachel's boyfriend tried to help the situation even though I allegedly said I sold drugs and she liked to do them, and we thought they were fun. Now to let everyone who doesn't know this but if anyone had every used drugs especially the hard drugs we used together they would know there is nothing fun about them and if you knew me and Rachel and seen us regularly then you would know our relationship was every thing but drugs that was just the only thing I didn't like was that I met the love of my life by using. There is nothing fun about it  the moment I met Rachel & found out that she was doing the drugs she used I thought to myself why is this beautiful girl doing the drugs she was using and the way she was doing them. It was upsetting even though at the time I was using the same drugs but I have a good heart and want the best for the people I care about. Now at the time of this it was when I first met her and even though I didn't know her very well I still had that want to care for her because she gave me such a good vibe when I first seen her using. Now when me and her were together the way I went about helping her was that I trying to be as real with her as much as I could and not a controlling boyfriend plus I was also using myself at the time. So I was never hiding any my using from her because I didn't want her to hide it from me, I wanted her to be open with me about any time she would use so I would know that way I could make sure she was safe. The dude who wrote the article left out a big part of what actually happened so now when ever me and her used drugs together there was not one time she ever overdose when ever we got high together and when she had passed that morning yeah I was there with her at her gmas but I was clean because I had just done a month in jail. The whole time I was locked up I talked to her on the phone almost every day. 2 to maybe 3 times a day, I got arrested with $750 by the time I got released I only had $270 in that one month we talked a bunch of calls because I probably only order store/commissary three times and only spent $50 or less, that just shows how much we loved each other we could not ever get bored or tired of hearing each others voices. I would constantly talk to her about how we should be clean together when I got out I would tell her to look at how good our relationship is while we're on drugs and we were such a good couple for the ones that actually knew our relationship and seen it for them self they would tell you that we were in loved beyond being in love and we were on the same level that I never thought I could be with a girl. I would talk with her on the phone from jail to just think about how good our relationship would be if we were clean and just from me talking to her from jail every day she was getting clean for the most part while I was locked up which she had to be pretty motivated to get clean as much as she was. So when I got out we were doing so good that this whole thing was not expected like this article makes it sounds like we seen this was going to happen but thats not even how it was. The dude also left out the part that when she overdose that morning is that everyone else was sleeping even myself which I wish I would of been getting high when I got out because I could of been with her when she decided to relapse with out having the tolerance that she had when she was really using a lot. So that night the last thing I said to her before I was woken up in the early morning was that "I love her good night baby" and she was sleeping in my arms and then I fell asleep then sometime after I fell asleep she woke up without waking up anyone else and went into the bathroom to get high by herself because she didn't want me to know nor her Nana because she knew at the time we promised each other we were going to be clean or try our very best too and if one of us were struggling with those demons that we would say something before we acted upon it, she must of thought I would of got mad at her if she was to tell me her reason for wanting to and thought it would of caused a fight. I would of been upset but not mad because I'm not like that and she just wanted to probably just do it that bad that she wasn't trying to have any distractions in the process of relapsing the last time. If she was going to use then she would of no matter what but I was always chill about it and I wouldn't freak out because people who get mad and try to force people to do things they don't want is what you call controlling which was definitely not how I was to her because I'm sure she wouldn't of love me as much if I was ever like that to her. Plus her and her father were constantly   fighting over things he was trying very hard to force her to do them and I could see she had lots of anger built up towards him because he was that way and I know she loves her dad and he loves her but my opinion to parents who want to help don't be so demanding or aggressive and try to control their every move because from what I have seen and also exspirence myself growing up is that when parents act that way it doesn't help it only makes them not want to even talk to there parents, it pushes them away, and it builds a hate for their own parents. I just want everyone to see that this way doesn't work when it comes to trying to raise kids, well In this case save your kid from drugs. I told her that I wouldn't be mad or angry if she wanted to get high but that I still wanted to know that way I could know if she was safe, which I said this to Rachel the day before her passing. So she went in there by herself and overdose while everyone was sleeping then her Nana was the first to notice and before she even open the bathroom door all the way she was screaming my name to help her that it's Rachel is what she said and I instantly jumped up out of a deep sleep and right away ran into the bathroom and did everything that someone could possibly do to try to save a person when they are overdosing and when it comes to that type of situation I have had some other exspirence's with overdose's before with old friends and even myself being the one who O.D but not ever to the point where some one was not saved and brought back to life. So from all the times I have dealt with that I have actually been pretty smart with paying very good attention on what the paramedics do and I also ask them questions on what the best thing to do up until they arrive. So from me taking in what they have shown me and told me to do I know really what I'm doing if that was to happen with anyone around me and I got that trade down to the t probably just as good as the EM crew and they had to go to school to learn and be certified.I tried so hard to save the love of my life the whole time until the paramedics got there then I let them take over but I didn't stop trying to bring her back one time until they showed up. This is by far the worst thing I have ever had to go threw and never really thought that would ever happen to me to lose her like that and even at that time when we were supposed to be clean it was unexpected to me. I just hope this doesn't happen to anyone I know or even If I don't know you even if I didn't even like you I hope no one has to ever deal with this serious of a accident. I just hope every one who reads this just gets a better understanding of what really happen and to not ever take any moment for granted when it comes to the people you care a lot about because tomorrow isn't always promised for all of us, so just make sure you always tell the ones you care about that you love them everyday because not everyone gets to have the opportunity that I had by being able to say the last thing I said to her was that "I love you goodnight baby" and I'm so grateful for that but this whole situation has really fucked me up and continues to makes me upset every day. Sorry such along comment but I just felt like I needed to correct the details this article left out on some important things they forgot to mention that I said to writter when he interviewed me. So thank you for reading this and I hope you can read it alright because I typed it all from the phone so give me some slack if I made a couple mistypes. Rip to the most beautiful person I have ever met Rachel Michelle Meyers I love you more then words could ever explain and I hope you watch over me like you have, sweet dreams baby girl.

           Ps- someone must of reported my first comment I posted on this article which was basically the same thing as the first one idk why someone would ever want to try to hide the truth behind this wonderful persons life that I happen to share some of my closes feelings with as so did she with me. We were closer with each other then we were to anyone of our friends and even our family's we were inseparable with each other up until her passing. She was the star to my heart and always will be no matter what baby girl I promise you that your always going to be my number one in my heart and since you held that spot when you were alive when you passed you took my heart with you so hold onto it until I am able to catch back up with you in the next life we live.

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

I am so sorry! Thank you for sharing your story. Sadly it is the story of many families right now. Our daughter who is 34 is also a heroin /meth addict. Has lost custody of our 7 year old grandson, which is a blessing in itself. we know he is safe and well loved and cared for. Again, family members have done everything possible to make her get help, even the thought of not having her son with her hasn't taken away her desire to get high. A stunning beauty before the drugs, graduated from the U of W business school, she too has lied, cheated, stolen to get the drugs no matter what devastation has been left behind, she continues on with no remorse. All we can do is pray for all. So sorry for your loss, your child is no longer living the life of hell on earth, Satan has provided this avenue to destroy Gods children. Praying for your healing.

Re: “Rushing's Rant

Dear whocares,
1) The Democrats that formed the KKK were conservative southerners. At the time, the Republicans were the liberals. Conservatives are now Republicans and liberals are now Democrats.
2) Calling George W. Bush a monkey is quite different than using historically racial slurs against the Obamas. Anyway, Dubya is a monkey.

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

I had the blessing to know Rachel and aside from everything drugs and whatever else she was a bright beautiful young girl!! She had an enormous amount of love an a pretty smile! I remember following her facebook page after she was gone an i can honestly say that girl was amazing an liked by hundreds of people by the posts on her page! Im positive losing someone u love to heroin addiction is one of the worst experiences any family or friend could go through.. Only that person has the control to really stop it from controlling them.. I would hope this article if anything would get a message or help someone fighting a heroin addiction because it is real and it can take anyones life it has control over!! So many people are struggling with addiction. I hope that her life being lost at such a young age will maybe if its jus one person open there eyes an think about her the next time they go to use heroin. Life is precious an i know tomorrow is promised to no one! It is heart breaking to see the sadness of losing someone so beautiful to heroin addiction!!

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

I agree, This is a touchy subject to me and to sit here casually discussing your thoughts on it is rude and quit honestly makes me upset. Rachel was beautiful and perfect inside an out there's nothing I would change or think about her. I don't care about what she did or didn't do an neither should you, the life she lived is what made Rachel, Rachel. So if would be so kind as to being a little more sympthetic an help the individual's still feeling lost an hurt it would be greatly appreciated. Sorry if I'm coming off rude or offensive, I'm sure some of you probably have great thoughts, suggestions and opinions on the issue but how about another time or another place. If You still having difficulties grasping or understanding my request how about you just imagine if that was your friend, family, daughter, I guarantee you wouldn't want to see certain "thoughts suggestions and opinions" either. just Imagine... Thankyou.

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

Marijuana is not a gateway drug for Opiates. Prescription Opiate derivatives are gateway drugs.

Journalists insult science when they propagandize propaganda as gospel when it is indeed false science. Research the biochemistry or stop writing insinuating stories on what caused this child to choose Heroin.

By the way, Nicotine is orders of magnitude more addictive even than Heroin. The difference is the dose in which Nicotine is administered to the masses via cigarettes.

An entire pack of cigarettes is estimated to have up to 20mg [miligrams] of Nicotene, and of that only 0.1 mg absorbed into the blood stream.

Scale that up to the amount of grams of Heroin an average daily consumption. Europe reports common consumption of 2 grams daily. Applying that same dose of Nicotene for daily consumption will kill a human.

Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…

Stanford states 30-60 miligrams of Nicotene will kill a human being.

Get the picture yet?

No one argues Opiates are deadly, yet we medicate the masses on minute masses of a drug far more deadly.

Marijuana should never even enter this discussion.

Scale down Heroin to 0.1mg of daily absorption and you won't find a single person addicted to it, because such a dose would be useless even as a pain killer.

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

"Rachel started smoking pot in the eighth grade." There's no mention of prior substance abuse in the article. Suggesting there were other causes is without basis in the article and appears to be rationalization, which is addict behavior.

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

MJ was the gateway drug? You're telling me this girl never had a sprain, dental procedure or any sort of medical treatment with opiates prior to using MJ in highschool Paulette Burgess? I think FAR more kids have experience with PILLS way before you notice ANY signs that they're using drugs. I would say it starts with that fuzzy feeling after the dentist and certainly way before they've had a chance to use MJ.

Re: “Who Do You Trust?

Socialism, communism and progressivism killed 250,000,000 people in the 20th century. Today's democrat celebrates mass murderers like Mao, Stalin, Ho Chi Minh, Hugo Chavez, Che and Castro.

All you really need to remember is that the number of people killed is far higher than the number of people who benefit from their policies and that Robert Herold celebrates them.

I guess Charles Manson did have a brother.

Re: “Seven Ways Drought is Impacting the Inland Northwest

Spokane does not use 180 million gallons of water a day, that is simply a lie. A simple phone call could get the actual number. That number is actually about 125 million gallons a day, being off by 33% is unimportant to a leftist, as long as it pushes the agenda, right? Gallons used per capita are actually 25% lower than in 1950.

Warmer winter weather does not necessarily mean dry weather, it could just as well rain. Rain is moisture and relives drought as well as snow.

It is no surprise the river communists found a dead fish in the river, fish live in the river and fish do die. The trout could have just as well died from a catch and release fisherman treating them poorly or a river communist hitting one with their boat.

The water has no doubt warmed up in the past and the fish are still there. The river has flowed slowly and the fish survived. I would not panic just yet.

Much like the "Ice Age" weather that would destroy us in the 1970's, socialist science is actually wrong more than you think. What happened to the much predicted global famine projected to occur in the late 1980's? It was supposed to wipe people from the earth. We will be on to the next scare shortly. I have a feeling too much rain will spell doom in March of 2016.

Apocalyptic flood anyone? Quick turn on John Stewart and get the next socialist infomercial.
