Re: “UPDATED: Divided Arcata City Council Stalls Student Housing Project

Arcata's student housing crisis is affecting Humboldt as far south as Rio Dell. Arcata should be held accountable for the damage they're causing basic housing all over Humboldt. It's humboldt low to lower middle class that's suffering for Arcata's image. It's not acceptable, Arcata benefits so greatly from the commerce and taxes gained from HSU. Financial resources the rest of Humboldt doesn't see. Arcata has the money to house all HSU students, but they don't want to because of Big $$$ influencing them.

Re: “UPDATED: DA: No Death Penalty in Gang Murder Case

It's long overdue time for much stricter gang laws. Release the small time drug dealers that fill most California's prison and lock these monsters up for life.

Re: “Mills: Suspect Pointed Gun at Officer Before Being Shot

When cops say the body camera wasn't on at the time of the incident, I immediately think crooked cops. Eureka desperately needs a new police chief that's for sure.

Re: “Escalation

+Joel Mielke, I'm not quite sure what part of 44 bullets fired by cops that you're missing?? You obviously feel cops should have carte blanche to shoot as many bullets as they like regardless of how many people they endanger. Witnesses will most certainly tell what really happen. Just because cops have badges doesn't give them the right to shoot like wild men on city streets. If witnesses prove this guy was much less of a danger than the cops are claiming, then at least one cop should be fired asap. It's our right and duty as citizens to hold all parts of government (especially law enforcement) accountable for their actions.

Joel Mielke, Resorting to childish disparaging words proves only one thing about you.

Re: “44

+Joel Mielke, Firing over 40 bullets because someone brandished a weapon and stole a running vehicle (not carjacked). Is a great reason to fire over 40 bullets that all but one missed it's target. It's pretty clear no matter what your title is Joel, this was extreme public endangerment by trigger happy cops who need to spend a lot more time at the shooting range. I'm usually on the side of law enforcement in Humboldt, but not in this case. You can say whatever you like, but the fact that cops shot over 40 bullets in Eureka and missed all shots but 1 still remain.
