David ... I don't know where truth lies but absolutely agree with your statement "All citizens not only have the right to speak out publicly and advocate for justice they have an obligation".
I believe Ms. Hinsvark should also be completely removed from the investigation process and I am appalled by the few public statements from a couple council members as well as the complete void of leadership from City Council as a whole.

I disagree. It is not exceptional to place someone on paid leave during an investigation particularly when their very presence may impede or diminish the veracity of the investigation.
Having read the letter today (and making no judgement about any of the allegations) my opinion is that the allegations are such that Chief Rae and Deputy Chief Delvalle should be placed on paid administrative leave while the allegations are investigated.
Given the nature and scope of the allegations I feel that the investigation should be handled outside of the control and influence of the city administration and outside of the influence and control of City Council.
The accusations should be investigated by the Colorado Attorney Generals office.

City Council needs to step up and decide what to do with it's time ...
When I moved here in 1982 it was Dog Crp USA ... everywhere. There were packs of dogs roaming around town and open areas like Soda Creek playground and the field by the district Human Services building were dog crp central. Been a dog owner for decades ... still am ... I get the frustration with leashing your dog. I also get the Voice and Sight Tag Program ... fine ... as long as that is entirely supported by the participants who want it ... I'm not inclined to pay more taxes for it.
LOL ... I have to say that was my 1st thought as well ...
Scott's correct ... "actus reus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea" ... some crimes require a guilty mind; the intent to commit the crime.
Alas amateur scientists (Finn & Doyle) never learned that correlation does not imply causation. They may be correct (by accident) but science has not (so far) proved their claims.
It can be a lightening rod of a position to hold ... I think Tracy has done a grand job and leaves big shoes to fill.
What a perfect choice! A renaissance woman of great intellect and passion.
I think this is brilliant and my hat is off to McClurg's ... nicely done!!!! Thank you!
