Re: “Cops to Review Policies After Fatal I-89 Shooting of Suicidal Man

It sickens me that people try to act like there is no problem with policing in the US when US police shoot over 1000 people every year. ...Or they try to say that awareness of this problem is "politicizing".

There are too many dead bodies. This needs to stop as does the rush to justify police shootings.

Re: “A Transformational Candidate: Hallquist Plans to Run for Vermont Governor

I am dissapointed at everyone bashing 7 days in the comments. It dries out my wet boots and starts my woodstove as well as it ever has.

Re: “#HerToo: Middlebury Student in Trouble Over List of Accused Sexual Transgressors

I'm not talking about law per-se. I am talking about REALITY. The reality of life is that if you do awful things to people they will tell others about it. Heck, if you do anything, people will talk about it at some point. Sometimes they will talk about it on FACEBOOK and sometimes what you do will spoil your reputation. It's just life.

Women always have and always will warn other women about who to avoid. If you don't like that, i suggest you get some help in accepting reality.

The only difference here is that there was a backlash about it. The backlash won't change reality. It will just force women at Middlebury to use more discrete channels to warn others.

Re: “UVM Administrators Decry 'Racist' Flyers Posted on Campus

UVM and other universities are being targetted by various nazi groups for recruitment. In Burlington it is most probably the same small group of nazi pests that did the anti-immigration protest. These groups do their planning on various nazi forums and anonymous image boards.

Re: “#HerToo: Middlebury Student in Trouble Over List of Accused Sexual Transgressors

There is no expectation or right of privacy when someone sexually assaults another. The reality is that we are all judged for our words, omission and acts. Some people here seem to think it is a duty to keep silent about wrongs done to them. That is not how the world works and it is not how the world should work.

Re: “'Rebels' Supporters Win Round in Fight for Vote on Name Change

South Burlington - it is time to move on from the past to the future. You have wasted about a year fighting to maintain a name based on the loosing side of the civil war which was fought to preserve slavery. Might i remind you - the South LOST and Vermont fought on the side of the North. The only battle of the Civil War in Vermont was a pathetic botched bank robbery. ....And we are wanting to memorialize this history ?

Lets put racism and white supremacy in the past and purge it from our present.

Re: “Conservative Provocateur James O'Keefe to Speak in Middlebury

Another question is whether rent was charged for the use of the facilities and whether the rent was actually paid.
