Dear Denver, stupidity in the name of compassion is not compassion, it is just stupidity

Egads! What type of mental malfunction would cause anyone to think this will end well?

The moonbats running Denver must want the place to smell like San Francisco:

The Denver City Council has voted unanimously to decriminalize a number of offenses, including defecating in public. Also, urinating in public. Camping on public or private land without permission. Panhandling. And lying across public rights-of-way, such as sidewalks.

This insanity was inspired by the liberal impulse to pander to illegal aliens at the expense of law-abiding, taxpaying Americans.

Democrat Mayor Michael Hancock and city officials explained the new ordinances are designed to protect immigrants — legal and the other kind — from “unintended consequences.” These consequences were fines and longer jail terms, as has been customary in most places for violating the behavioral norms of civilized American society.

Gay TSA Agents At Denver International Airport Fired After Conspiring To Grope Men’s Genitals

Two TSA Agents Fired After Conspiring To Grope Men’s Genitals – Mediaite


According to a new investigative report from CBS4, two TSA screeners have been fired from their jobs at Denver International Airport after one of them admitted to manipulating the system to allow one of them to grope the genitals of male passengers he found attractive. The alleged incidents occurred about a dozen times over the past year.

“He related that when a male he finds attractive comes to be screened by the scanning machine he will alert another TSA screener to indicate to the scanning computer that the party being screened is a female,” a law enforcement report reads. “When the screener does this, the scanning machine will indicate an anomaly in the genital area and this allows (the male TSA screener) to conduct a pat-down search of that area.”

The TSA first learned of the scheme last November, but did not take action until months later when a supervisor caught the employees in the act. When confronted, the female agent “admitted that she has done this for (the male TSA officer) at least 10 other times” and “knew that doing so would allow (the male TSA officer) to perform a pat down on a male passenger that (the male TSA screener) found attractive.”

“These alleged acts are egregious and intolerable,” a TSA spokesperson said in a statement. “TSA has removed the two officers from the agency. All allegations of misconduct are thoroughly investigated by the agency. And when substantiated, employees are held accountable.”

Notably, CBS requested surveillance video of the known groping incident for its report but was denied.



Denver EPA Email Instructs Staff Not To Defecate In The Hallways After Several Incidents Reported

EPA Appeals To Denver Workers Not To Poop In Hallway – KBTV


Forget toxic waste dumps, the Environmental Protection Agency apparently has a more immediate cleanup problem in its own backyard: An employee defecating in the hallway., the government’s business news daily and key website for federal managers and executives, reported Wednesday that the EPA management for Region 8 in Denver sent an e-mail earlier this month to staff pleading to stop inappropriate bathroom behavior, including defecating in the hallway.

In the e-mail, obtained by Government Executive, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor noted “several incidents” in the building, including clogging the toilets with paper towels and “an individual placing feces in the hallway” outside the restroom.

“Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals,” Cantor wrote.

According to the e-mail, a consultant was brought in to address the problems.

That email says “the consultant advised us that this is very dangerous behavior as it includes property destruction and a disregard for the health and safety of others.”

The email goes on to say behavior that includes the destruction of property and disregard for human health is classified as attack-related behavior.

EPA spokesman Richard Mylott told Government Executive in a statement that the agency could not comment on “ongoing personnel matters.”

On Thursday morning, the EPA released the following statement:

Mental illness and destructive behavior in the workplace are serious issues that all large organizations must periodically face. EPA’s actions in response to incidents that occurred months ago have been deliberate and have focused on our responsibility to ensure a safe work environment for our employees. Our brief consultation with Dr. Nicoletti on this matter, a resource who regularly provides our office with training and expertise on workplace issues, reflects that responsibility.

It’s unclear who defecated in the hallway at the EPA, but 9NEWS Psychologist Dr. Max Wachtel says whoever it is might suffer from some sort of mental illness.

“It can be. It can a symptom of cognitive problems. It can be a symptom of psychosis, and it can be a symptom of substance abuse. Sometimes it’s just an extremely immature person,” Wachtel said.



Denver Hires Illegal Aliens To Teach In Public Schools

Denver Hires Illegals To Teach In Public Schools – Sweetness & Light


From Denver, Colorado’s NBC affiliate, KUSA:

DPS to hire previously undocumented immigrants

Nelson Garcia | April 10, 2014

DENVER – Long before Alejandro Fuentes Mena became a fifth grade teacher, he was an undocumented immigrant from Chile. “I came to the United States when I was four years old,” Fuentes Mena said.

And we believe him.

In August, he started at the Denver Center for International Studies at Ford Elementary School as part of effort by Denver Public Schools administrators to be the first school district in the nation to actively seek out teachers people who were initially brought to the United States illegally.

What a great idea. Who better to instill in students the importance of abiding by the law?

DPS is working with Teach for America to bring in people with an official status of “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” as determined by the federal government. Part of the requirements for DACA status is that a person must have been brought to the United States under the age of 16 and have a clean criminal record.

They probably even make them swear that they are telling the truth.

Even with DACA status, they are still not recognized as legal citizens, but they are allowed to work…

And join the teachers union, of course. Which is the important thing here.

[Tom Boasberg, the superintendent of the Denver Public Schools] estimates that the 10-to-20 percent of the school’s district’s population are undocumented…

And just like how only women can teach women, and only blacks can teach blacks – only illegal aliens can teach illegal aliens.

Teach for America is a program which brings people of different backgrounds and experiences into the classroom to enhance learning. They are not licensed teachers but were issued an alternative license from the State of Colorado to teach. These teachers are currently enrolled in classes to attain their traditional teaching license after one year.

By the way, teachers in ‘Teach For America’ not only receive the normal school district salary and benefits, they also get an AmeriCorps “education voucher,” which can be used to pay for credentialing courses, or to pay student loans or fund further education. Isn’t that great?

The Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform has serious concerns regarding DPS’s decision to hire DACA individuals. The group said in a statement that it believes the majority of people with DACA status are not properly trained or certified to become teachers:

It is unlikely that most of the illegal aliens with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status are trained, qualified, and certified as educators. Indeed, DACA status requires attainment of only a high school diploma or a GED certificate. Using unqualified individuals as “educators” does a tremendous disservice not only to students of all races and nationalities, but to our entire educational system.

What racists! The value of having illegal aliens taught by illegal aliens is incalculable. (Literally.) It doesn’t matter if they don’t know how to teach or if they don’t know their subjects. They are down for the struggle.

The group also said that this decision is unfair to the millions of Americans seeking a full time teacher position:

There are at least 20 million Americans who either do not have a full-time job or are underemployed. This includes teachers. It is neither fair nor appropriate to hire unqualified foreign nationals to replace qualified and experienced American teachers…

More nonsense. There is no way illegal aliens are taking jobs away from American citizens. (Or we would have a high unemployment rate.) Illegal aliens are just doing the jobs that Americans won’t do.

Members of the Walton family, the founders of Wal-Mart, made a large private donation to help pay for teachers with deferred action status to go through the Teach for America program.

“I am very, very grateful to the generosity of Ben and Lucy Ana Walton for their philanthropy in helping support these teachers in our schools,” Boasberg said…

Those racists at Wal-Mart are helping to fund this? Where is the outrage?

Since when did supporting Gay marriage amount to bullying private businesses?

I have said before I have no real issue with Gay marriage, it should be left to the states. But, I recognize that many of those pushing for Gay marriage do not want “equality”. They want to force their lifestyle, and more specifically complete acceptance of that lifestyle down everyone else’s throats. That includes bullying businesses that choose not to provide services to Gay weddings or receptions.

A Colorado judge says a baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs, a ruling that a civil rights group hailed as a victory for gay rights.

Administrative Law Judge Robert N. Spencer ruled Friday that Jack Phillips, the owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver, will face fines if he continues to turn away gay couples who want to buy wedding cakes.

“The undisputed facts show that Respondents (Phillips) discriminated against Complainants because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage,” Spencer wrote.

Last year, David Mullins and Charlie Craig visited the Masterpiece Cakeshop to order a cake for their upcoming wedding reception. The couple had planned to marry in Massachusetts and hold a reception in Colorado.

Phillips told the men that he could not bake their cake because of his religious beliefs opposing same-sex marriage. He offered to make them any other baked item, but not a wedding cake. The couple immediately left the shop and later filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division.

“Being denied service by Masterpiece Cakeshop was offensive and dehumanizing especially in the midst of arranging what should be a joyful family celebration,” Mullins said in a statement. “No one should fear being turned away from a public business because of who they are.”

The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado hailed the ruling and said it serves as a warning.

“While we all agree that religious freedom is important, no one’s religious beliefs make it acceptable to break the law by discriminating against prospective customers,” ACLU staff attorney Amanda Goad said in a statement. “No one is asking Masterpiece’s owners to change his beliefs, but treating gay people differently because of who they are is discrimination plain and simple.”

The very notion that a business cannot deny service to “prospective” costumers is asinine. This is the problem with so-called civil rights laws many times. The intention is noble, but Leftist activists and Statists use these laws to trample the rights of business owners. 


The Left continues to bastardize the meaning of rights

Rights, as defined by our Founders came from our Creator, or were natural rights, that is rights that are inherent to us all. Those rights included the right to property, freedom of speech, association, the freedom to practice your own religion, or to practice no religion at all, and the right to keep and bear arms among others. You might have noted that among the rights I listed, a right to not be offended was not present. Nor was a right to force a business to sell a product to you. The Left, it seems, is intent on creating such God-given rights. Such rights cannot exist in a nation that honors liberty. A “right” not to have your feelings hurt infringes upon the right of everyone else to freely express their opinions. Likewise any effort to create a “right” that forces a business to sell or provide a service to anyone would naturally place an undue burden upon that business owner.

Take a case from Colorado described in The Blaze

Should bakers and other vendors be allowed to refuse service to gays and lesbians, specifically when it comes to marital ceremonies? “No,” argues one gay couple who have filed a discrimination complaint against a Colorado baker who refused to provide them with a wedding cake.

Masterpiece Cakeshop, owned by Jack Phillips and based near Denver, Colorado, is at the center of the dispute after David Mullins and Charlie Craig attempted to order the baked good from the business last summer.

Phillips, declining to provide service after learning of the couple’s sexuality, cited his Christian beliefs. But Mullins and Craig aren’t accepting Biblical arguments as a viable basis for the refusal.

“We were all very upset, but I was angry and I felt dehumanized and mortified,” Mullins said in an interview with the Associated Press.

What was then posted by the couple on Facebook, as Gawker notes, spread like wildfire and is now making national headlines. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is also involved, having found two other couples were Phillips declined to make cakes for in the past as well. The legal group is not researching next steps in the contentious case.

Last week, the Colorado Attorney General’s office also filed a formal complaint. If the baker loses and continues to refuse service to gays and lesbians, he could be fined $500 per instance — and given up to a year in jail, his attorney claims. Phillips will stand in front of the state’s Civil Rights Commission in September.

As a person who has worked in the restaurant business for over 20 years, I am well aware that every restaurant reserves a right to refuse service to anyone. Over the years I have refused service to a small number of people who were too drunk, or disturbing other patrons. That is, and should be the right of every business owner. I have never refused anyone because of their sexuality, nor would I, frankly. And, if I ran a bakery, or a catering business, or a restaurant that hosted wedding receptions, I would not hesitate to do business with a Lesbian or Gay couple. And, to be honest, I think this bakery owner is being a bit hateful, but, that is his right.

I cannot grasp why a Gay couple would want to do business with that bakery. My attitude would be  to say “screw you, I will get a cake somewhere else”. I also do not understand where these two men get the notion that it is OK to force something upon the bakery owner. But, somewhere along the way, this Gay couple have convinced themselves that they have a right not to have their feelings hurt. They, feel they were discriminated against, and that sucks, but guess what, people on both sides of the business costumer relationship discriminate every day. That is just reality. Using the force of courts or government to force businesses to serve costumers they do not wish to serve is something we ought not to encourage. Call me crazy, but I prefer liberty.

Colorado sheriffs protest new gun measures

God bless these patriots

Two hours earlier, sheriffs from 17 counties held a rally at a nearby park to lambast the state measures and call out the White House for using Colorado as a “guinea pig” for its national gun-control agenda.

“If the issue that we’re focusing on is community safety and reducing violence, it could have been done without some of these very serious impositions on our citizens,” said Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith. “The fact they ignored that and the president showed up for a victory lap, I think, is a slap in the face to Coloradans.”

“We are here to remind you that the voices of the 62 elected Colorado sheriffs were silenced by the leaders of the majority party in the statehouse,” Sheriff Smith said. “Your governor found it too inconvenient to allot even 15 minutes to hear the concerns of the sheriffs of his state.”

Sheriff Smith also criticized the Denver Police Department for putting pressure on officers to appear on stage with the president during his speech at the Denver Police Academy. At least one officer filed a complaint this week with the city’s ethics board over the request, saying it violated police rules on appearing in uniform at a political event.

A department memo obtained by KUSA-TV in Denver offered police the opportunity to appear with the president, but Sheriff Smith said officers told him that they were “coerced into being there.”

“I can tell you I’ve personally talked to Denver police officers who’ve assured me they had felt pressure, that they were told, ‘You’ll be at this event,’” said Sheriff Smith. “Only when officers refused to attend were they then were allowed to go to their normal districts. They certainly knew they could not stand up here today [with sheriffs] without potential repercussions.”

The Left loves to say that law enforcement supports gun control, these sheriffs would beg to differ. What the President bis doing is creating a false image about support for gun control, and a false image about what these new laws would do.

NFL Playoff picks for Divisional Round

Only eight teams are left standing, and after Sunday, there will be four. So who makes the cut?

The action kicks off later today with the Broncos hosting the Ravens in cold Denver. My pick, Denver. Yes Denver might score less than normal, but so will the Ravens, and that spells doom for Baltimore.

Game of the weekend? The Niners hosting the Pack. Such a tough call here. I have been going back and forth on this one. But, I am sticking with my original pick, the Niners, although I will be rooting against them.

Sunday sees the Falcons host the Seahwaks. Another very tough choice. I can see it go either way, but Seattle is hot right now, and the Falcons have yet to prove they can win in the post season.

Lastly, the Pats will destroy the Texans. I wish it was going to be different, but I do not see it.


Benghazi just looks worse and worse for Team Obama

Now President Obama says he gave a clear directive to protect secure personnel, but where is the paper trail?

Earlier today Barack Obama told Denver’s WUSA TV this in regard to the Benghazi 9-11 terror attack,

“I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice.”

Tonight however, Bing West, a former Assistant Secretary of Defense, told Greta Van Susteren,

“If that actually happened the way President Obama said it happened, there’s a paper trail and I think people reasonably enough can say, “Can we see the order?” because hundreds of others supposedly saw this order.

So, basically, he is trying to throw everyone under the bus here. One problem for me is this, if such an order was given, why did President not follow-up? Certainly we should expect that our Commander-in-Chief would be monitoring the events, getting constant updates. Obama’s latest story makes it sound like he just threw out a directive, to use his word, and threw up his hands. One more glaring problem here is that why wasn’t the president saying this weeks ago? Why does his version of events keep evolving? Sadly, I think we know why.

A plant at a Romney/Ryan Rally?

RS McCain thinks so, and I would agree. This guy might as well have leaves growing out of his ears!

I can pretty much guarantee that this man photographed at a Romney rally in Lancaster, Ohio, is not in fact a Republican, but rather is a plant sent out by the Democrats as a dirty trick.

  • Clue #1: Wearing a “Romney/Ryan” sticker on the back of his T-shirt. Nobody does this. Nobody.
  • Clue #2: It’s kind of chilly in Ohio this time of year, and the guy’s wearing only a T-shirt, while those around him are wearing coats.

My guess is that this guy also wore a coat when he entered the rally, then stationed himself toward the back of the crowd (in front of the riser where the press photographers are stationed) and then removed his coat to expose the T-shirt, with the explicit purpose of having it photographed.

. . . aaanndd, Clue #3: No name? A press photographer is going to take a picture like this and make no effort to ID the guy? Nuh-uh.

Fake? Yes, most definitely, so fake, in fact, I have to wonder, will any media even try to run with it, besides MSNBS of course! Also see the story of another Dubious, as in complete BS, hate hoax 

Sometimes, when news breaks, you just wait for the expected sequel, so I didn’t jump when I saw this yesterday via Memeorandum:

Shot fired at Obama campaign field office in Denver

Oh, really? 3, 2, 1 . . . FAKE!

One of two people suspected of shattering 11 windows Tuesday morning at the state Democratic Party headquarters has an arrest record and a history of helping a Democratic political candidate, public records show.
Police said that about 2:20 a.m., 24-year-old Maurice Schwenkler, now in custody, and an at-large accomplice took a hammer to the picture windows displaying posters touting President Barack Obama and his health care reform efforts . . .
Schwenkler is charged with criminal mischief and is to make his first appearance in Denver County Court today.
He is accused of doing an estimated $11,000 in damage and could face a felony conviction.
On the last day of the 2008 Republican National Convention, he was charged with misdemeanor unlawful assembly in St. Paul, Minn.
Court records provided through the St. Paul Pioneer Press show he was jailed about 2 a.m.
Schwenkler received $500 in November 2008 to walk door-to-door in support of Democrat Mollie Cullom, who lost her race to Republican state Rep. David Balmer of Centennial. . . .
Schwenkler was one of dozens of paid canvassersbankrolled by the Colorado Citizens’ Coalition, a political 527 committee funded by labor groups and well-known, wealthy liberal donors.
In those disclosures, Schwenkler’s address is listed as Derailer Bicycle Cooperative, a free community bicycle collective that operates just around the corner from the Democratic headquarters. . . .
Balmer said he suspects the vandalism might have been aimed at making the GOP look bad.
“This sounds like the type of Democratic tactic from the left fringe trying to make Republicans look mean-spirited,” Balmer said. “In this case, it blew up in their face. He was caught red-handed.”

Just more evidence that the Democratic Party is a vacuous entity with nothing substantive to offer


Pretty wiped out tonight, I left for Colorado last Saturday morning at 8, flew on South West out of Love Field at 11 AM, funny how SWA has never gone bankrupt isn’t it? They provide better fares, better service, and run a better airline, yet, the other “bigger” names never seem to think to themselves that maybe SWA is worth emulating. I guess their CEO’s are just too smart for their own good. But I will save my rant on how dumbed down so many corporations seem to be for another time. My sister, niece, who will be three in November, and I landed in Denver just after noon Mountain time, and picked up our rental from Enterprise, another company who I use if at all possible. Again, better rates, far better service, and no hassles. I have to ask why anyone would pay MORE, for less at other rental giants that shall remain nameless.

From Denver, I took the E-470 toll road, North to I-25 North, finally exiting on to Highway 66 heading West. It is a route I have driven almost every year since 2003. A route that takes me to beautiful Estes Park, Colorado, nestled right next to the most beautiful place I have ever seen, Rocky Mountain National Park. Like all of our national Parks, Rocky is a treasure, there are opportunities for everyone to fall in love with it. Fishing, hiking, my personal favorite activity, camping, wildlife watching, photography, picnicking, or just relaxing. Right now, the elk are in the rut, which means you must give those 750-1100 pound bulls with their massive 40 plus pound antlers plenty of respect. Elk are everywhere, including in town, on the golf course, and right outside your cabin sometimes. In 2008, I walked out of the Safeway, my cart full of groceries, including some great Colorado craft beers, and right there, in the parking lot, 30-40 elk milled around, taking their time moving towards the golf course. Funny that I, nor anyone else really seemed to mind the delay. The golfers might have minded, I imagine, but, who cares about anyone who dresses like some golfers.

Over the years I have seen black bears, one up close and personal in 2010, We had a small dispute over who could use the trail up to Fern Falls, and after close consideration, I let the bear have the right of way. This past Wednesday night, a big male, which the locals say has a real affinity for pizza, turned over the large dumpster near my cabin. There are not many bears in Rocky, and they do not grow as large as black bears in other areas, but, they are incredibly powerful.

I have seen two sets of mountain lion tracks, which filled me with awe, and a lot of caution, I would love to see a mountain lion, but the idea of having to take a hungry one on does not appeal to me in the least. I have also seen  moose, the most dangerous animal not only in Rocky, but in the West, they kill more people than bears do. They are massive, and not nearly as common as their elk cousins, but to see a big bull, is incredible. Coyotes are common, and big horn sheep are sometimes seen on the East side of the park too.

I took my sister and niece on a wild 4-wheel-drive ride thru the Roosevelt National Forest, and by took, I mean I paid someone with a kick ass Hummer to take us on said wild ride. My niece, who turns three in November loved the bumps, and dips, and insisted the we “do that again” repeatedly, before falling asleep for the last twenty minutes or so. My sister also did a ghost hunt at the legendary, and allegedly haunted Stanley Hotel. I am not much for hunting ghosts myself, but the Stanley has a ton of great history, and is worth checking out.

As I said, I love hiking in Rocky, but, this trip, thanks to a sore knee, I did very little of that, but still had an absolute blast. And, next year, at this time, I will likely be in Rocky once more, hopefully hiking up to the many waterfalls, or mountain lakes, stopping every so often to be amazed at the splendor and magnificence of this place. The first time I ever came here, I stopped and took a short hike on the Deer Mountain trail. As I looked around I remember thinking that no one could possibly be here and NOT believe in God. That was in 2001, I decided I wanted to see the Rockies, and took my vacation, staying in Denver, and driving to different areas. I ended up staying most of my time in Rocky. After that short hike on Deer Mountain, I went into town, but a back pack, hat, sunglasses, first aid kit, some quality hiking boots, and other hiking essentials. It was there that my love of hiking was born, and it is a love that still excites me.

So, now, as I prepare to get back to work, and back to blogging, I am already counting the days till I can get back to this place I love so.

The Lefts war on self-defense and on individualism

Via Moonbattery, I think it is self-explanatory

Nine-year-old Nathan Pemberton of Colorado Springs was kicked out of school Tuesday for standing up to a bully. Steven Swedenburg, a reader at Denver’s KDVR, provides the commentary:

 Most Wednesday afternoons Nathan Pemberton would be sitting in his third grade classroom. But that didn’t happen.

“Got suspended,” he says.

The 9-year-old was kicked out of school Tuesday after he says he stood up to a bully who was beating him up.

“One kid kicked me in the back, then punched me in the face. Then I punched him in the face, and then I got in trouble, he says.”

A picture shows the red marks on his face. His parents says about once a week, he’s been coming home from West Elementary School in Colorado Springs saying he’s been bullied.

They’re glad he finally decided enough is enough.

“Finally, yeah, we told him, if you have to, if there’s nobody else around, you do what you have to do,” his mother, Deborah Pemberton, says.

A school spokesperson told FOX31 Denver in a statement the district has a “no tolerance student discipline policy. If a student is involved in a physical altercation on school property, they are automatically suspended.”

It goes on to say, “District 11 schools employ many anti-bullying teaching techniques … and none of these methods include violence or retaliation.”

This is more than just the continued idiocy of “zero-tolerance” policies. This is part of the Left’s continual war on both individualism and on self-defense. Note that the school policy against bullying says 

“District 11 schools employ many anti-bullying teaching techniques … and none of these methods include violence or retaliation.”

In other words, there is no punishment against bullying. A policy against bullying that has no teeth is worthless. In fact it only punishes those who do the right thing and defend themselves.

I have had some experiences with bullies in my life. Two were in school, one in 7th grade, one in high school. Let me tell you about one of those. The bully, I will call him Carlos because that was his name, thought it was cool to jab me in the back, and then run. Carlos did this a lot. Well, one day, Carlos did it while we were lined up, and he could not run. I turned, punched him in his mouth, and split his lip. He immediately ran to the teacher, who said ” Carlos, you are always hitting people, what do you expect them to do? Now you go apologize”

Of course, this was a private school, and more than twenty years ago, so I was lucky. I had a teacher with some common sense. Today, common sense, it seems, is forbidden in school.

Anchor bitten on face by rescued Argentine mastiff dog Gladiator Maximus on TV segment

The video of the attack has apparently gone viral, you can click the link if you choose, I prefer not to see the attack. Here is the story

An 85-pound Argentine mastiff dog dramatically rescued a day earlier from an icy lake was impounded Wednesday after viciously biting a Denver television news anchor on her face during a live in-studio segment. WATCH THE ICE RESCUE VIDEO HERE:

Kyle Dyer was conducting an interview on the rescue of Gladiator Maximus, also known as Max, after the dog fell into a frigid Lakewood lake Tuesday while chasing a coyote. The live segment was aimed at reuniting firefighter Tyler Sugaski, who rescued the animal, and Michael Robinson, the dog’s owner.

According to KUSA-TV , firefighters, paramedics and animal control were called to the station after the attack.

I hope the woman is OK, she put her face right in the dog’s, never a good idea if you are not familiar with the dog for sure.

Colorado Men Use Dead Friend’s Debit Card To Party At Strip Clubs While His Corpse Lay In Their SUV

Colorado Men Use Dead Friend’s Debit Card To Party At Strip Clubs While His Corpse Lay In Their SUV –

Two men are accused of driving around Denver with their friend’s corpse and using the dead man’s debit card to pay for a night on the town, including a visit to a strip club, prosecutors said on Friday.

Mark Rubinson, 25, and Robert Young, 43, are charged with identify theft, criminal impersonation and abusing the corpse of Jeffrey Jarrett, 43, the Denver District Attorney’s Office said. The pair are not accused of causing Jarrett’s death.

A probable cause statement filed by Denver police said Young telephoned Rubinson on August 27 to say that his roommate Jarrett was unresponsive at the Denver home they shared.

Instead of calling authorities, the men loaded Jarrett’s lifeless body into Rubinson’s SUV and went on a spending spree when it was “obvious Jarrett was dead,” the statement said.

“Rubinson and Young then go to Viva Burrito and purchase food, using Jarrett’s credit/debit card to pay for the food,” the report said. “They then go to 7-11… and purchase fuel for Rubinson’s car.”

Police said the men then took Jarrett back to his home, and went to a Denver-area strip club where they used the dead man’s debit card to withdraw $400, and stayed until closing time.

Finally at 4 a.m., the men finally flagged down a police officer to report Jarrett’s death, the report said. When police responded to the house, they “located Jarrett, obviously deceased.”

A statement issued by the Denver medical examiner’s office on Friday said an autopsy has been performed and authorities were awaiting toxicology results to determine the cause and manner of Jarrett’s death.

The friends were arrested on August 28 and formally charged on September 6, Lynn Kimbrough, spokeswoman for the Denver District Attorney’s Office, said. Both men are free on bond.

Flash Mob Denver… Black And Hispanic Gang Members Assault White Shoppers At Mall

Flash Mob Denver… Black And Hispanic Gang Members Assault White Shoppers At Mall – Gateway Pundit

And the hits keep on coming… A black and Hispanic mob pummeled 4 white shoppers outside a mall in Denver on Sunday.


CBS Local reported:

Police are asking for the public’s help tracking down a large group of violent teenagers.

They say 10 to 15 young people – described as black or Hispanic and both male and female – attacked four white men on the 16th Street Mall at about 10:45 p.m. on Sunday.

Denver police say the men were standing on the mall near Arapahoe when they were approached by the group. After a conversation, the group turned violent and they attacked the men.

Two of the four victims left the scene before they could be questioned. The Denver Post reported that two of the victims suffered minor injuries.

“It’s really unclear as to what their motivation was – why such a large group of young people came together and assaulted these individuals,” said Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson.

The motivation behind this crime is really unclear? REALLY? Hmmm… I wonder how “unclear” it would seem to Mr. Jackson if the gang in question was made up of white kids and the victims were all minorities.

Thank you Mr. Sowell

If you want unvarnished truth, go ask a wise man. A man like Thomas Sowell for example

Someone at long last has had the courage to tell the plain, honest truth about race.

After mobs of young blacks rampaged through Philadelphia committing violence — as similar mobs have rampaged through Chicago, Denver, Milwaukee and other places — Philadelphia’s black mayor, Michael A. Nutter, ordered a police crackdown and lashed out at the whole lifestyle of those who did such things.

“Pull up your pants and buy a belt ’cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt,” he said. “If you walk into somebody’s office with your hair uncombed and a pick in the back, and your shoes untied, and your pants half down, tattoos up and down your arms and on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won’t hire you? They don’t hire you ’cause you look like you’re crazy,” the mayor said. He added: “You have damaged your own race.”

While this might seem like it is just plain common sense, what Mayor Nutter said undermines a whole vision of the world that has brought fame, fortune and power to race hustlers in politics, the media and academia. Any racial disparities in hiring can only be due to racism and discrimination, according to the prevailing vision, which reaches from street corner demagogues to the august chambers of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Just to identify the rioters and looters as black is a radical departure, when mayors, police chiefs and the media in other cities report on these outbreaks of violence without mentioning the race of those who are doing these things. The Chicago Tribune even made excuses for failing to mention race when reporting on violent attacks by blacks on whites in Chicago.

Such excuses might make sense if the same politicians and media talking heads were not constantly mentioning race when denouncing the fact that a disproportionate number of young black men are being sent to prison.

The prevailing social dogma is that disparities in outcomes between races can only be due to disparities in how these races are treated. In other words, there cannot possibly be any differences in behavior.

Go read the rest, it is very good. If only our political leaders were as wise as Sowell.
