Re: “Burlington's Top Cop, Brandon del Pozo, Aims to Rewrite Policing

"Later, the NYPD sent him to the Middle East as part of a terrorism intelligence-gathering unit. Based in Amman, Jordan" which was illegal and racist.

A man who supports racial profiling as police chief? Bad idea.

This is what used to be called a "puff" piece.

Re: “Former Trooper Had a History of Illegal Searches, Documents Suggest

Wow...this guy really needs to stay fired. If this article is accurate, and it does cite a lot of facts, then not only is Hatch informing his police work through his racism, but he is insubordinate and a bit of a rogue cop as well. Of course the union defends him. Police unions defend all their members no matter how corrupt they are. It's a problem. If police unions actually considered the public good as well as their members well being, perhaps they wouldn't be complicit in so many crimes committed by cops.

Re: “Time Out: Group Says Schools Suspend Too Many Students

Criminalizing children because of the failures of "modern education" is yet another monumental failure. Sitting silently in rows is not education. Being compliant, submissive, not questioning, is not education. Being drugged because you're a child who wants to be in neither healthcare or education.

Look to the "Free Schools" and the outdoor schools, the unschools and the homeschooling co-operatives; that's where the best education is happening.

Re: “CEDO Director’s Eviction of Elderly Woman Draws Attention

However Owens spins this he comes out the stinker. Cut your losses, do the right thing, and don't cry about the legal fees you incurred through your attempts to evict an elder. Being concerned about someone's welfare does not equal kicking them out of their long-time home.

Re: “Traffic-Stop Data Show Racial Disparities in Burlington Policing

Every time...EVERY time I have been to Burlington in the last 7 years I have seen a person of color pulled over by a white cop...every time.

Re: “House Considers Decriminalizing Small-Scale Pot Cultivation

So much sturm and drang. Just decriminalize it period and let the chips fall where they may. It will be fine. Really. How much money is being wasted in this process of deciding whether or not a plant should be legal or not? It's just foolishness.
