  1. We won World War II only to turn Nazi ourselves, what a shame. These men are sadistic cowards and we’re forced to capitulate and pay taxes to them.

  2. They are assholes till you need one. Those guys and girls are the ones that will run head long into gunfire and danger to save you and your family when you are in Dire straits. Tom advocated for better mental health services for years. This ultimately is our county supervisors fault. With adequate mental health services in the county maybe Magdaleno wouldn’t have been off his meds? Maybe a mental health worker would have showed up before the UPD or with them to help manage the situation. I don’t advocate for how Mr. Magdaleno was treated but we train these folks to be effective when someone with an AR shows up at your kids school. There training is essential in this shitty violent word we live in today. Look at the news folks, look at what’s happening in this county with violence and crime. These men and woman have a tough job. Yes they should be held accountable for their individual actions, of course. But there also needs to be a conversation as to who is really responsible for this situation. City managers, county supervisors, these are the people who have the power to set up the services a community needs to stay safe. Advocate for more mental health services. I for one sleep better knowing we have a few “Rambos with badges” out there.
