Thank you Spacey for your contribution. You are very correct about Rudy and the what if. Ergo, now only big wig democrats are somewhere in DC getting paid off, taking kickbacks and bribes under Obama. That door swings both ways there smart guy. OH, and also thank you for proving my point about the Independent being the only actual news sources that has put this guy on the map by sighting the Independent as your news source. This back and forth is comedy.

I am reading through this article again to see where Michael Huffington was also convicted as an accessory….hmmm…nope…nothing there. Let me check the Penal Code for any specific charge for fraud or embezzlement while being a Republican…oh…hmm…nadda. Gardengal, your argument does nothing but prove my point that your hatred for republicans is so deep that it clouds your logic. Can you not admit that you hold this hatred for your neighbors? Do you deny it? Thank you for proving my point. He is a registered republics. So what. I guarantee you that most of the crime that occurs in this city are registered democrats. No? Prove me wrong. In Reality, no one really cares to know about it. Seriously, I don't. I see a criminal…not a party affiliation. Could you imagine? So and So, a registered Democrat was arrested for DUI today. This other guy, a registered Republic received a citation for jaywalking. WHO F-ING CARES is my point??? May he serve out his sentence. Justice is done. Period.

Can someone explain to me how his party affiliation in any way ties him to the crime for which he was convicted? I did a simple google search and the top hits were all articles that call him a big bad Republican by the Independent. I get it, he is a convicted criminal. But, did the guy ever hold an elected position as a Republican? This article just further proves the visceral hatred that hard core liberals like the "Indy Staff" (as no one actually owned up to writing this piece) have for people who don't share their views…for example, the big bad Republicans. May I add, that the Republicans did take control of the Senate in the recent election. I ask, where were the people in the streets rubbing it in everyone's faces like when Obama was elected?? Where was the block party and the weed, because I missed it? No one is yelling in the streets that there problems will be solved that the government will now be transparent or that we all get free phones or that we don't have to worry about anything any more or that there will be no more wars and no more Gitmo…nope…the streets are silent. Silent with the sweet sound of gridlock. The next two years will be, with any hope, filled with real change. Maybe people will start to hire for jobs and maybe, just maybe, this economy will get back on track. So go ahead "unnamed Indy staff member" with your cowardice hatred, please continue to associate Republicans with the likes of criminals. I will sleep just the same.

@EastBeach, I do ride a bike. A nice cruiser bike. I'm quiet, I enjoy the scene, I ride in the designated bike path, and don't run red lights…unlike the thugs with their gang mentality acting like they own the road. No thanks. And btw, your only retort is to declare that yoman and myself have hypertension? LOL.

"Share the road" signs are aimed at you cyclists too. It means you need to share the road and get out of the way of the 4,000 pound hunk of metal with a person texting their friend while driving. I'm all for exercise, but there is no such thing as equal rights when it comes to certain narrow roads like APS. Widening that road would be nearly impossible. And I certainly don't care about you or your thug friends enough for me and my Santa Barbarians to reach into our pockets and fork over tax money so that you can ride it safer. No way. You want to find a safe alternative? Stay off APS. In fact, ride in bike lanes only. You thugs are a menace to the streets and no one wants to see your testicles protruding out of your see-through bike shorts. So gross. I'm sorry about your friend, but she chose a dangerous sport. I feel bad for the person that hit her more. She was just trying to get from point A to B, and now she has to live with that death on her conscious all because your friend chose to ride on a dangerouse roade (which btw is any road you share with cars). I remeber this comedian who once said that this young girl was hit by a car on her street and died. So the community got together and installed a speed bump where she died to slow the cars down. Now every time she went over the speed bump, she cried because it reminded her of her child's tragic death and how she blamed herself for not watching her daughter. Pick another sport or stay out of the way of the hunks of metal. Stay in your bike lane and I encourage police to enforce existing laws about bikes that block traffic. They seem to only remember to write tickets to bicyclists to people on the anual cruiser run.

I'm all for it as long as they impose stricter laws on knives and BMWs. I left my gun out the other day on the kitchen table and...low and behold... It didn't shoot at anything or anyone. It was wild. I was like "go for it hand gun, shoot something". It did nothing as if it were mocking me. So I put it back in the gun safe where it belongs. Apparently I have one of those guns that don't do bad things that warrant more stupid laws aimed at good citizens.

Wow, there is so much visceral hatred coming from you in this piece. I guess being an unbiased reporter is not your M O. Good luck with that. I will line the bird cage with this piece.

And yet Sheriff Brown was reelected by your readership. I would like to see change, but I fear HIS knee jerk response will be to blame the weapon, and not the mental health of the boy.
