Re: “No Show

The response is SCSO does not attend so Community members feel free to express their concerns without fears of reprisal on the street, getting pulled over, etc. I think it's good policy, myself. Not that any SCSO deputies would behave in a vindictive manner... That's a "third world" problem, right?

Re: “No “I” In Dependent

Good article. Where did Tom go? I cannot believe you're paying Daedalus Howell for ANYTHING!

Re: “Unearthed FBI memo reveals agency quietly backed off from full investigation of Andy Lopez shooting—less than a week after announcing it on Oct. 25 2013.

Who killed the investigation? Why was it closed? Looks like a high-level cover-up to me. The SCSO was long overdue for a full Civil rights inquiry at the time Andy Lopez was killed. Keep drilling, Tom -- hopefully you will be able to put names and dates to this regrettable and improper action.

Re: “For a Few Dollars More

What you are missing:

1) IHSS was designed for a friend or family member to care for a loved one without going completely broke. There is no "career path."

2) Just because someone is fortunate enough to make $11.65 instead of $9 doesn't mean they shouldn't pursue a better job or a real career with opportunities. Of course, some workers would have to finish high school, or learn better language skills, or take other self-motivated actions to increase their attractiveness to the general workforce.

IHSS should NOT become a highly paid dead-end job. It should be a stepping stone or a job a loved one can choose to do for their client.

3) Lastly, local government threw us under the bus with their unsustainable pension benefit increases in 1997 & 2002. There's no freakin' money for this. Plus they tried to take it out on their own contractors and non-profits last month. Notice how well THAT went over. They pulled the proposed ordinance back after hearing from the aforementioned groups of employers. The County needs to take agressive, creative action to reduce our pension obligations. Maybe there will be money then.

So, opposed to $15 in principal. On board with police reform. Guess that makes me... "Independent?" Should gave kept your old name, lol...

Re: “Letters to the Editor: May 7, 2014

Nice letter, Doc. I, too believe in recovery, restoration and forgiveness for Efren Carrillo. It's between him and Jane Doe from this point forwards. One day at a time, as he said the other day to the PD.
