Re: “Lawsuit: Inmate Died After Being Held in Solitary for Drug Withdrawal

Venturing is a fortune 500 company that doesn't care about the inmates health! I know from experience in the past and they do neglect your health.. As a matter of fact I was told by one of the nurses that the only time you get professional treatment is if you are about dead then they would send you to the hospital! It must be true what she said! Also centurian is the cheapest contract health care and Vermont always get the cheapest contract help! They are also the supposed health care used by most prisons. Think about why there's so many prison deaths!

Re: “Donovan's Dilemma: Free Speech vs. Hate Speech in Bennington

"Donovan has no jurisdiction taking action against any man or woman of this state without a verified complaint from the damaged party, which in the case of the firearms magazine, there is none."

Freedomtothink, no, that is not how the law works.

Re: “Hooked: How So Many Vermonters Got Addicted to Opioids

Its really sad how many physicians voted NO for treatment. The clinics and doctors that prescribe bupe or methadone and DO NOT judge the patient are the real MVPs... because that is one thing that addicts do not need when they are getting help, hell it is incredibly hard to even walk into one of those rooms without feeling like a complete embarrassment to yourself and your family! The statistics are clear , the medicine helps. The community needs to stop bashing those on a matienence program. Also the pharmacies in Rutland need to stop giving these patients bad customer service and or stop ordering their medicine because they dont want to (true fn story) that sends addicts right back to square one. I.E Im not good enough. Im a loser. They think Im a junkie. Just give them their medicine to get better. Ive seen so so sooooo much success from suboxone. Its saved lives. Its created opportunities, carreers, and most importantly FAMILIES!

Good lord - when do we stop seeing people who are incarcerated as people deserving of basic care?

Re: “Burlington to Move Forward With Moran Plant Redesign

"And as for your critique of city spending, it's perfectly fine when Prog administrations do it, just not when any other administrations do it. Like $16.9 million in secret spending on Burlington Telecom under Mayor Bup-Kiss"

To be sure this revisionist history is dispelled, there was no "secret spending" on BT. The Board of Finance was involved and all money was accounted for as building an investment that 2/3rds of the city voted to approve. BT's CPG also granted explicit permission for the funding mechanisms involved. Two subsequent investigations (1 state, 1 federal) AND 1 civil suit all failed to find any evidence of this "secret spending".

But who are they to question a reliable editorialist on bulletin boards?

Re: “Lawsuit: Inmate Died After Being Held in Solitary for Drug Withdrawal

My heart goes out to Christine and her child. Reading those court docs was painful and I can't imagine how difficult it will be for their daughter to read later as an adult. Everyone at that correctional facility failed him, failed to do their job, and should be held accountable.

Re: “Walters: Republicans Offer Flurry of Amendments to Vermont Abortion Bill

This is what happens when you let special interest groups write your laws and no one has the courage to speak the truth: existing practice in Vermont for the last 40 plus years is only UVM Medical Center performed third trimester abortions at the hospital when the mothers life was at risk. The hospital recently reversed its 40 year ban on perforning elective abortions and now performs second trimester elective abortions. Whose to say that the hospital will not reverse their ban on third trimester elective abortions? I have spoken to many of the H.57 bill sponsors and they have promised that the hospital will not change their policy and perform third trimester elective abortions. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Re: “Residents Wary as Burlington Rolls Out E-Bikes and E-Scooters

I think its a cool idea but will the scooters make it up the hills here in downtown Burlington ?

Re: “Residents Wary as Burlington Rolls Out E-Bikes and E-Scooters

@liamgriffin
Call me crazy, but I'm still more concerned about people driving bikes and scooters, speeding, running red lights, texting, driving impaired & other dangerous behaviors that actually get people killed.

Re: “Walters: Republicans Offer Flurry of Amendments to Vermont Abortion Bill

They should have an amendment giving men the right to abortion too. If they don't they are discriminating against men, something that is much too common and accepted. The concept of the paper abortion allows the biological father, before the birth of the child, to opt out of any rights, privileges, and responsibilities toward the child, including financial support. Misandrists say that men should use birth control or be abstinent, but when you tell women they don't need abortion rights because they can just use birth control or be abstinent you get accused of misogyny. Double standards are not acceptable.

Call me crazy, but Im still more concerned about people driving cars, speeding, texting, driving impaired & other dangerous behaviors that actually kill people. A 15mph e-scooter that weighs less than 20lbs isnt something that is going to bring total chaos to Burlington streets.
