Re: “Transient Held After Man Fatally Stabbed on Church Street

My, my, my... What a stark, stark contrast in both the reporting and the comments on this tragedy. The man was a "Transient", a full listing of all the past illegal transgressions against the law going back to 1996, discussion of mental health issues, etc etc. How completely, and embarrassingly, different it would be if he had used a gun instead of a knife.

On a side note, nice job Burlington! You want to push full steam to become an overdeveloped big city, you got overdeveloped big city problems. "The fastest growing city in Vermont" soon to become known as the armpit of Vermont.

Re: “Up in Arms: Bill Would Let Cops Take Guns in Domestic Violence Cases

"But, she argued, the bill is the best way to address the threat hanging over domestic violence victims: "Unfortunately, firearms are used in these situations."

So you want to deem a person dangerous enough to warrant taking away their firearms, but not dangerous enough to take them into custody and keep them there? After which they can then use a baseball bat, their fists, boots, a kitchen knife, car/truck, chainsaw etc etc etc... I guess limited intellect equals limited solutions.

If Rhonda Gray had been killed with anything other than a gun, we wouldn't even be having this conversation. The focus would be on the killer and the root of the problem instead of on 1 object out of a possible 1000 that could have been used. Anyone that honestly believes that taking a gun out of the hands of a deranged person, turns them into a perfectly normal person, shouldn't be allowed to hold public office.

Re: “Checkpoint Vermont: The Feds' Broad Reach Inside Our Borders

The collusion of our state law & local law enforcement with those working for the federal government is a slippery slope indeed, that doesn't get talked about nearly enough. Especially boarder enforcement working continuously so far away from the boarder & their continuous & wanton disregard of the 4th amendment. Thanks for shining a light on this issue.

The federal government knows that our individual rights are best taken away by a slow & constant erosion.

Re: “UVM Proposes $80 Million Athletic Facility on Campus

When was the last time the University spent $80 M-I-L-L-I-O-N Dollars on the Science department? Or the Technology Dept? Or the Math Dept?

Eighty Million Dollars on what looks like a few aircraft hangers, to teach kids how to play with a ball...

One of the biggest downfalls of education in this country is that we take sports way, WAY too seriously.

Re: “Common 'Grounds': Screening for Cancer in Coffee Regions

Sounds like nobody has ever looked into why so many women there are getting cervical cancer in the first place. Treat the cause, not the symptoms. Look at the pesticides, herbicides & chemical fertilizers used on the coffee plants in the first place & stop poking at minuscule parts of peoples bodies while ignoring the rampant poisoning.
