Without disagreeing that there is still an enormous amount of racism, EVERYWHERE. There are plenty of this sort in all races. The application here is more to the point of the investigators, and not so much the shooter. I deduce from everything that I have read, that this individual was out to shoot somebody sometime. I think whoever happened to walk through in a hoodie or whatever at that time, on that night would have been shot. The investigation as I see it, should have concluded, that the shooter continued to follow the victim after being told to stop following, and he didn't. If the victims body was not found in extremely close proximity to were he was told to wait and meet the responding officer then, I submit any injuries to the shooter, were issued in what the victim perceived as the need to protect himself, and " stand his ground ". So the fact that the shooter has not been arrested leans more toward racism etc. than just the fact that a non-black shot a black. I believe the shooter here would have shot a person of any race in this same situation. Therefore the individual should be charged, not his race, not his right to bear arms but his decision to shoot another person when he was in no danger at all if he just walks away.
" As a citizen, I feel that my trust has been violated by these three commissioners." ... your phase, most of our feelings. You should add to that phase, continously and without remorse.
Congratulations to the young Men and Woman who are embarking on this challenging career. Here is some advice for all young Men and Woman beginning careers working for a government agency. Whatever you were told about your future compensation, benefits and advancement opportunities while you were being processed is in no way a contract. Your new employer in the end is not obligated to honor anything they have told you. You should go into this with your eyes open. The people you will serve will be happy see your compensation and benefits cut the day after tommorrow so that they can still walk in the park and get free reading material without their taxes going up. So I wouldn't run right out and buy that new car if I were you.
How dare they add 4.60 a year to my tax bill. I think they should furlough some trash picker-uppers, or do a study/survey on how they can take the neccessary funding out of their employees pockets. They should just be happy that they have a job.
I might agree with that except for one point. The county wasn't competing with this citizen for the T-mobile contract. The county used the power of government to sabatoge the permit process, ( which a "private business doesn't have the ability to do). Your argument about decreased value of surounding land because of this tower is crap too. It will not decrease any more for the surrounding proporties than it does in the park 100 yds away.
I just wasted about 1 and 1/2 hours watching it. Reminded me of what my old First Seargent used to say " we look like a monkey having carnal knowledge with a football"
I think I would have begun to be suspicious when the request was tabled for the 11th time. I believe an attorney is a good idea after the 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th time that it gets tabled. By the time it is tabled for the 22nd time and your contract has expired, they have already worked out their deal. The county probably worked out a deal with T-mobile right out of the gate, then the tabled it over and over in accordance with the time line of the contract with T-mobile. I personally think we should keep cell towers away from pastures and large tracts of unsused land, they should be placed in the closest proximity to children playing as we can manage.
