Re: “Honoring the Fallen

Pull the shades and barricade the doors -- the copniks are assembling in the City Built on Bigotry (AKA: the Intolerant City).

Where is the outcry for the men murdered in cold blood by the men in blue?

Re: “Aggressive Hitchhiker Spotted in King Salmon

Is that a tag on the seal's right flipper?

If so, what could it mean?

Re: “Spring Curry

This dish looks absolutely disgusting, but from the list of ingredients -- it probably tastes pretty good.

I'd recommend garnishing the dish with fresh cilantro, diced onions, and tomatoes.

Thank you so much for asking, Sarah.

I'm a picker.

I'm a grinner.

I'm a lover.

And I'm a sinner.

Re: “Trimmigration Sting

Okay, I guess we don’t have any chess players out there.

It seems that the mommies-in-tennis-shoes contingency has spoken, with their ubiquitous use of multiple exclamation marks, for emphasis.

Apparently it is applauded when law enforcement abandons morality; and apparently people in the community do not mind sacrificing civil rights for some unspecified increased sense of security.

Wake up people. What starts out as what appears to be relatively innocuous law enforcement use of dishonesty and deception has the capacity, with a disinterested public, to move into more sinister forms of police malfeasance and abuse of power.

As we learned from the recent Crescent City law enforcement debacle, law enforcement officers sometimes interpret the law in strongly vitiated terms.

We need to guard against the wild-west law enforcement mindset that works to conceal law enforcement’s seamy underside of police methodology and practice.

It has been established that law enforcement not infrequently retains the spoils of many of their operations through “asset forfeiture” and other means of absconding with private property of individuals in the absence of reasonable due process.

Similar repeated moral lapses and the slow, yet systematic breakdown of civil rights is desensitizing citizens from taking righteous stands against the corrupt nature of those who “govern” and “protect” us.

Today law enforcement, with pronounced duplicity, takes part in an unlawful shakedown of pro-pot wannabe weed trimmers placing their names and personal information on who knows what list towards who knows what purpose.

Will they use this information to fly a drone over the homes of the wannabe trimmers, inadvertently discovering the unknown “crimes” of a neighbor?

Will the cops forward the information to Child Protective Services; or will law enforcement report the information to organization that process student loans?

Let’s not be naïve here and let’s be proactive, thinking several moves ahead to what unmonitored and amoral policing could look like in the absence of proper admonishment of law enforcement from the people.

Re: “Trimmigration Sting

What is wrong with law enforcement? Does not a single officer have a functioning moral compass?

What Chief Mills has done here is dishonest and deceitful.

I'm sure that Mills, were he to comment, would say that "The end justifies the means."

What a sleezeball. What a deviation from good honest law enforcement. What a shame.

It is funny all of the negative press that homeless addicts get. They are often spoken of as if they were the scourge of the earth. And then you have law enforcement, officers sanctioned to lie, cheat, and entrap -- and few people say a single word.

Utterly disgraceful. Absolutely pathetic.
