This was long overdue!
Many of the 'roughed up" have long been a problem for law enforcement. Possibly emotion can take over in an effort to teach a lesson.
It will not be so easy to unseat Randy as his district is not gerrymandered to elect a Democrat as is DMB's "There ought to be a law" is a knee jerk reaction, There already is a law and we don't need politicos trying to reinvent the wheel to get attention.
Can you imagine an elected official being against affordable housing?
Let's assume that we have moved on and all of today's problems are behind us. It is difficult for me to be optimistic that the future will be any better. Government entities are unwieldy by nature and this may be just another day at the office.
Let's consider some real meat, I don't ride the bus but my tax dollars are used. Why is that different? I'm okay with reasonably full units but most of the year tinted windows hide empty vessels. The airport scenario can be challenged in many ways, user fees seem fair but why not charge for the bus for starters?
Years ago in the Iron Horse era I stated that city matters should be covered under the comics section. It seems that history may be repeating itself.
If we have had a longstanding problem at city hall it is discomforting to know that it was not addressed long ago. Does one hand not know what the other is doing? I have observed past problems that took years to address. Sometimes it seems that the lights are on
but no one is home The private sector has built in checks and balances that eventually kick in when things go awry. In public work with workers security involved it seems that there is a reluctance to "let the fur fly".
Scott, Does Gore's jet run on the same foo foo dust? Why is it that certain crowds always seem to claim the high ground when it comes to the environment? In reality we are all guilty and there are no saints. Recently Jerry Brown, a noted saint, wanted us to build him a new LAX before the oceans flooded the site. As is usually the case his math was wrong and it is not going to be submerged.
This is a mess. Well meaning folks could have solved this eons ago. Now there will be no winners.
