Take whatever shots you want at the legal system, and even if some of them are true, that makes him no less guilty of the multiple offenses noted in the article. There have to be a great number of conspirators ganging up on this poor young man for him to be as innocent as you seem to believe. He does not deserve a cash bonus, in spite of your stated distaste for police and prosecutors
It is sad that the legal system has loopholes and other opportunities for abuse so that miscreants like this can be rewarded in spite of multiple infractions of the law and repeated incidents of assault on others. It also appears that his mother is incapable of objectively understanding the true nature of her son.
We need to expand the ticketing of the flatlanders with very substantial fines. I know there aren't enough Forest LEOs to cover all the roads and camping areas, but maybe we could flood the area with volunteers to help with the patrols who could get the litterers' license plate numbers and pictures for later billing. Some cultures (both non-American and some American) do not have the expectation of being responsible for your own trash (take it out) or for appreciating the beauty of the wild. Nor do many of them respect the law. But they do respect the penalty of getting caught and fined.
Just curious. If Gila College has difficulty drawing enough students to achieve financial stability, then how will a satellite university campus in Payson draw an additional 6,000 students? What will motivate students from other North/Central AZ towns to come to Payson? The party atmosphere (just kidding)? I'm worried about the financial guarantees made by the Alliances to ASU to cover the losses for any low-student attendance numbers. Have we been assured in stone that any continued subsidies (which seem likely) by the Alliances will not ever be passed on the PRMC operating costs and fees and/or the local taxpayers?
Sen. Allen is right. It is time for a responsible, more centrist role for the radical environmentalist groups who have a disproportionate amount of influence on law writing, lawsuits, and creating restrictive regulations. They have very deep pockets, some activist judges, and many like-minded agency heads, and are able to stop common sense projects and create nuisance law suits. Time for more courageous challenges to their abuse of the legal system.
I noticed they dug a very large rectangular hole in the back. Just curious, is that for a pond to handle all the paved-over area's rainfall collection?
Gee, maybe we can get another fast-food joint! And good luck with the access and parking for any business that might go in there. All the concrete barriers keep drivers from getting to any other parking spots, turning around, etc. Just look at the mess created with the Carl's Jr. parking lot next door. Too bad the businesses can't cooperate with each other for the convenience of customers.
Pete Aleshire obviously doesn't care for Republicans, especially the more conservative members, but he comes closer than he usually is to being objective. He didn't quite make it because he can't help himself, but I appreciate the effort.
I'm guessing he was doing a Touch 'n Go, which is probably not legal at this airport. And I'll bet he didn't announce his intentions to other aircraft in the area on the Unicom frequency, which isn't illegal but still an ill-advised pilot technique. I can't tell from the picture if there are any USN or USAF markings still on the plane, but I'd be a bit surprised if private aircraft were allowed to be painted to appear as though they were active military. Either way, it appears to be someone just having fun and taking some risks with the rules.
I would love to see the radars used on the 260 between Tyler Parkway and Star Valley. Living in that area, I observe drivers going over 65 mph all the time, including tail gating cars in the left lane who are approaching turns to the left.
