Re: “Priced for Scale: $8.5 Million Listing Could Limit Options for Burlington Cathedral

The location is great, the landscaping is truly pretty but lets be honest the architectural worth of the actual building is worthless.

Re: “Violence Caught on Camera Leads to Brutality Claims Against Burlington Cops

Hi Charlie,

There has been 2 news reports on smoking on church street just last week and the city suggest we should self police approach people and ask them to respect the laws. All good we can do that but I would also love to see how many citations the police has issued for this. I am happy to call the police but it also should be their job to be there to show presence that's all. It is not a secret where problem areas are.

Re: “Violence Caught on Camera Leads to Brutality Claims Against Burlington Cops

No Smoking on Church Street has 0.00 police enforcement. The downtown gas station just got robbed by what is described as a very aggressive person and they are asking the public to help. Do your job please, not just when you can fill up the budget. Get out there walk, bike, and drive be a damn presence in the community. Put a car out on Main Street during rush hours and you will see how much safer pedestrians will feel crossing the street. The same goes for the UVM police show your presence dont hide in some parking lot. This cant be so difficult come non Miro do something. Burlington is not a metropolis is a large village that is not in need of SWAT teams but a simply visible police force that does their job enforce existing laws

Re: “Violence Caught on Camera Leads to Brutality Claims Against Burlington Cops

Policing in Burlington has become a very capitalistic affair. The police is only our when money can be made. Friday and Saturday evenings downtown is a police state. Just like the Mafia the police is our there to offer protection to the bars/clubs and make cash on anyone that might have had a drink to many. The officers are extremely aggressive and de-escalation is not in their repertoire. During weekdays there must be 2 police officers on duty period. The homeless population occupies the so called city hall park, drugs are dealt alcohol consumed in open. Just now 5/7/2019 its raining and the circus has moved to the second floor of the College Street garage just across the street from the City Park. There is drinking spilling beer on the pedestrians and cars below. No police in sight and the mayor can literary see it from his office daily.
