Does anyone even care that 6,000 cases of reported neglect and abuse went un-investigated by Child Protective Services Special Welfare Assessment Team at the Arizona Department of Economic Security?
When I saw the Nov. 7 KPNX Channel 12 news story headlines, “Cop cover up? Did Chandler police officers tamper with evidence after a Mesa SWAT sergeant’s DUI?” I thought, not another dirty cop!
Once again we are being told about the shenanigans of Republican Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne.
“If you’ve got the money honey, I’ve got the time; we’ll go honky tonkin’ and we’ll have a time.”
This bulletin has been prepared for the use of teachers, school administrators, and curriculum development committees. It will also be useful to members of your boards of trustees and to the general public in helping to interpret the philosophy and objectives of the elementary schools.”
I am writing about Bill Richardson’s thoughtful column: “Our new crime-riddled ‘Five C’s’ and what to do about them” (Commentary, Tribune, Sept. 18).
“Okay, we know what the writer thinks is wrong. Does he have any idea what to do about it?”
Every time I hear Sen. John McCain talking about border security I picture him strolling along the
I don’t normally agree with Bill Richardson, but I do here (Aug. 21). It’s very unfortunate that these dedicated men lost their lives doing their job but it happens every day in some occupation. They took the job knowing the possible risks. Do we afford the families of our brave troops who lost their lives in their government service the advantages of hundreds of thousands of dollars plus lifetime payments for the families? I don’t think so. Their deaths were half way around the world and not near Prescott. They didn’t have the daily “hero” hype of the local press. I’m not diminishing the impact of their deaths but we need to put fairness in perspective. I think the media has provoked this claim for more money. We need to move on and consider ways this doesn’t happen again.
Gov. Jan Brewer needs to “just say NO” to a proposed special session and current demands for increased benefits for the families of the 13 part-time Prescott firefighters killed last June in the Yarnell Hill Fire. The families of the six full-time fire fighters killed will receive different benefit amounts due to full-time employment status.s
Last week there was some good news and some not so good news for East Valley cities.
Considering all the bad news we’ve had in Arizona lately, we are finally getting some good news. Ex-governor Janet Napolitano has resigned her job as President Barack Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security and is moving to California to take over the struggling University of California system.
“Bill Richardson (Commentary, July 17 Tribune) is wrong in claiming race is not a factor in the Martin verdict. Obviously if Zimmerman had ended up dead, and Martin the shooter, Martin would have been locked up for the rest of his life never to be heard from again. It would have been just one more shooting among many across the country that night. The real question in this case is: are we a nation of laws or a nation of vigilante justice? Does Florida’s stand your ground law allow someone like Zimmerman, patrolling the neighborhood with a big gun, appoint himself judge, jury and executioner?”
A lawfully impaneled jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin. The State of Florida failed to prove Zimmerman committed any crime. The government used the full force of its powers to investigate and prosecute Zimmerman and didn’t prove its case to the jury. That’s the way the system works in the United States.
News stories from over the weekend about the deaths of 19 Granite Mountain Hot Shot fire fighters in Yarnell paint an ugly picture of Arizona’s response to what was a small fire that grew and grew and killed so many.
Chandler Police Chief Sherry Kiyler’s “from the front” leadership the past nine years inspired a police force and helped build collaboration among East Valley safety departments, according to those who have worked with her.
Friday will be Chandler Police Chief Sherry Kiyler’s last day on the job. She is retiring after over nine years as chief. Before leading the Chandler department, Kiyler served 31-years with the Phoenix police department where her career took her from the streets to investigating organized crime to leading the department’s homicide unit and eventually commanding the Violent Crimes Bureau.
You can’t pick up the paper or turn on the news without hearing about yet another Arizona police officer being fired or investigated for a crime or violating their department’s rules of conduct.
‘Selective scrutiny’ over police, fire pension programs a dangerous game
It’s official: Jodi Arias is guilty of 1st Degree Murder in the death of Travis Alexander.
‘Had I known about the crime problems around Arizona State University I would have never let Kyleigh move to Tempe.” Those are the words of Karen Montenegro, the mother of murdered ASU student Kyleigh Sousa.
It was no surprise a 20-year-old man was arrested over the weekend for stabbing another man at the Country Thunder music festival in Pinal County. News reports tell of an argument escalating into violence. I’d bet excessive and criminal alcohol consumption played a part in this crime.
The burns on the 17-year-old girl’s legs will scar her forever.
I find it interesting the number of Arizona folks who are captivated and fascinated with sex crimes. It’s like they can’t get enough of it. I hear constant talk about the media-created, soap-opera-like atmosphere surrounding the Jodi Arias murder trial. People are fascinated with the sex talk and titillating tales of what Arias and Travis Alexander did before she admittedly murdered him.
