I was thinking the exact same thing, how is this not 1st degree? Probably tied to some sort of emotional stress that caused him to do it, nonetheless, it's premeditated murder, says so right in this article:
"He lied to get out of work, went home, grabbed a 7-inch butcher knife and looked for her at Mathers’ Bar. When he didn’t find her there, he waited in the parking lot until he saw his wife exit the Elk Head Apartments with Arredondo.
It was then that he crossed the parking lot and began stabbing Arredondo. Forensic testimony suggested that the first wound proved to be fatal with the blade of the knife driven upward through the ribcage into the heart and lungs."
If that is not premeditated murder, I will never know what is.
Normally I do not stick my nose into issues in your town, but, Craig PD, MC Sheriff and CO State patrol all share a building here in Moffat. The Public Safety Center has been in operation on land just inside city limits for 15 years or so and they have no issues getting to where they are needed. Thing is, all these entities WANTED to be together so they could process issues more efficiently and easily. Other than the building lease issue with the county, which has been resolved, they seem to work efficiently and in harmony.
Thank you Mike, finally a voice of reason.
OK, thanks. The only reason I said that is because you said "Moffat County", which to me means all of us, I guess I read into it wrong. This secession nonsense is a huge sore spot for me, and yes, it is nonsense. There are a lot of good, quality people here, unfortunately we are undercut by the tantrum throwing toddlers and the people with power.
I only own one tie and rarely wear it. I was not referring to you and frankly do not understand what you are getting at.
Why the "two bit", "toddler throwing a tantrum" remarks? Why does this have to resort to thinking we are lower than you? From what I read, steamboat and routt county make some pretty irresponsible and irrational decisions on a daily basis.
Many, many in this county DO NOT support this, please don't demean all of us because of the delusional thoughts of a few.
Only 40 people so far have signed the petition, that does not mean there aren't more out there that support this, it just means that only 40 people out of 10,000 at this moment think this is right, .04% is a very small margin. We shall see when the election comes around.
As I have said before, there are more intelligent people living here than we get credit for, especially from our neighbor to the east of us, we are not all dumb redneck hicks. I would bet a paycheck this thing falls through like a sinker without a bobber. It won't happen, now or ever.
Thanks. And hope for a speedy recovery.
So, the passenger gets a ticket because the driver did not have the proper license? Did the passenger own the truck? Seems odd.
