Bill, lets hear a commentary on Gilbert PD losing 350 lbs. of weed, and their lame azz excuse that it was old moldy shizzza. These monkeys are as bad as Holder and the Fast & Furious crew. Oct 1, 2011
Tina implying that this insane person was motivated by the PALIN Tea Party initiative is such a specious positon that it is laughable. Really Tina, scope sights focused on Giffords district are symbolic and mean that Tea Party folks (citizens who believe in the basics of the constitution and the free market) simply are targetting the POLICIES and Social Engeneering of the Left. Don't try to smear them as hate mongers. As I read this twisted person was more alligned with Left leaning thoughts i.e, Communist Manafesto and Mein Kempt the ravings of of Government Totalitarian. You are entitled to your opinion but not changing of facts. Twisting this horrific to somehow blame honest Americans who voice their CONSTITUTIONALY PROTECTED SPEACH BYdisagreing with the direction this country is headed is akin to Blaming America for Osama Bin Ladens act of homicidal, terror that occured on 9/11. You should be ashamed of yourself, however, I dought you have enought of a conceincious to be. Jan 9, 2011
Really don't knw what else I could e-mail you. I confirmed with Mayor and Council that Ofc. Zycowits (sic) was under investigation for Agg. DUI as a result of an Arrest by Scottsdale PD DUI Task Force. His BAC was reported to be in the range of .25+ and some guy named D. Bigos from the city said that he would be appropriately punished, Duh. I would simply like all the Major PD's in the Valley (Phx, Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, MCSO and DPS) to be FOI'd for stats on the last two years of how many of their officers were arrested for DUI. Then do a matrix on what punishment they recieved. Bill, if a reporter would do this, then publish the results maybe we---the citizens and the 5th Estate could change a culture in local law enforcement that if you are a Cop and drive drunk--it will be published. And maybe we can Shame them and Police Administrators to fire these scofflaws who wear badges and create a CULTURE in Az. that is not OK for our police officers to drive drunk. Jan 7, 2011
Hello Bill, why is the media not doing series on local police officers who drive drunk and otherwise get arrested for the same crime violations they enforce on citizens? They could start with Ofc. J. Zycowics (sic) who was arrested for Extreme DUI by Scottsdale PD over the holidays. Why not put heat on the Chandler PD Chief to fire this mouthbreather and get a cop with integrity so us tax payers get our monies worth. This poor excuse for a police officer will be ridin the pine for at least a year until he can actually perform the duties of a police offficer again--not to mention what lousy decision process this tool has and he is enforcing laws on us....Or how about a series on Chief's of Police that fail to hold their Officers accountable for their Criminal Actions. Something wrong here.

Why don't you guys do a series on local police officers who drive drunk and otherwise get arrested for the same crime violations they enforce on citizens? You could start with Ofc. J. Zycowics (sic) who was arrested for Extreme DUI by Scottsdale PD over the holidays. Why not put heat on the Chandler PD Chief to fire this mouthbreather and get a cop with integrity so us tax payers get our monies worth. This monkey in blue will be ridin the pine for at least a year until he can actually perform the duties of a police offficer again--not to mention what lousy decision process this tool has and he is enforcing laws on us....Or how about a series on Chief's of Police that fail to hold their Officers accountable for their Criminal Actions.

bedyler you were a lousy mayor and are still the pompous, outoftouch, egocentric goofball as when you were in Fountain Hills. Good riddence to old trash, glad your weird ways are being appreciated in th dying city of Mesa, and Chandler has to deal with your faux intellect. Dec 29, 2010
I disagree with you. I have served and deployed to both combat and non-combat zones. In all the units I have served in it was common knowledge who in our units were Gay: both Male and Female. It was not a topic of discussion, nor was it a topic of discussion who was hetrosexual. People simply did their jobs and pursued their private lives--it worked just fine. I never saw one instance of discrimination based on sexual preference--because it was a non-issue. I did, however, see Gay people pushing their poltical agenda, creating claims of bias where non-existed; In the cases I was invovled in it was their general desire to be treated "differently" than other service members that caused the problems i.e., you couldn't look at them because you were judgeing them or if you ordered them to clean the toliet they were being singled out for retribution. All perceived grievances on the part of the Gay member because of their insecurities, not the militaries. My experience has been, no one in the Military cares if a person is gay, as long as, you don't use it like a club to get preferencial treatment. Join, do you job pull your own weight and get over yourself. Dec 5, 2010
I have heard all the hubub about TSA and how they have never uncovered a terrorist act. Bill people are missing the point. The TSA mission is to deter an act of terrorism or a violent act, not catch in the act or investigate. I believe our Fed. Government is trying to find a "PC" method to "detect" anyone who might be trying to smuggle a harmful item onto a plane, however, they are doing so in a manner that is highly intrusive to the average person and infringes on privacy rights. It is obvious that the USG doesn't want to use a layered approach to AirPort security such as general passenger screening (non-intrusive) in conjunction with Intelligence Driven passenger screening, questioning based on profiles of Terrorist or Criminals, K-9 and mechanical detection of PETN and random lugguage searchs. A cadre of Federal TSA or other agents who monitor and investigate the backgrounds of airport workers and guidelines of who can be authorized to work behind the security layers in the airports is an excellent point, however, I fear airlines may have problems finding people to take entry level jobs who don't have some form of dubious history--not an expert in this area but it may require an increase in salary to attract a more trustworthy person--which of course would increase flight costs that are already out of control.
