As expected, the quality of reporting has taken a big hit. Check out this “story” which is really a cut and paste press release. Is this what passes for journalism these days? Wow.
Like you, I also expect a much more in-depth, true journalistic analysis from the Dispatch regarding a Wi-Fi upgrade at the local airports. Disappointed to no end!
It’s not just the littering of both threads with the same information, but the regurgitation of the same information over and over again in the same threads that is tiresome.
When you bring new information and new insights and new analysis, great. More of that, please.
That’s about as straightforward as I can be. I’m sorry you feel the need to lash out at anyone that challenges you, but hopefully you can understand my perspective since you continue to insist everyone else heed yours.
Doesn’t appear that you’re challenging DD on anything, just griping about his/her forum activity.

You posted about this in another thread already.
I recognize and respect your passion for local political reform, but hope you can show a semblance of respect for your fellow message board posters by not filling up each local political thread with the same information over and over.
No he won’t stop and this will just continue and basically clog up these threads and ruin any real possibility of discussion that might happen on these threads.
I admire his/her passion towards the management of his/her city and don’t feel “disrespected” by the multiple posts at all. IF I did I would elect not to read them. Keep up the informative work DD, you make observations and points that are worthy of consideration at the voting booth.
So you want people to contribute to a chosen fund and then hope that their money actually goes to that fund?

I won’t even get into the fact that sales tax exempt purchases from an online seller gives them an unfair advantage over your local businesses.
That’s good because you would be wrong.

Sooooooo….. Ginther feels vindicated because the contract approval followed procedures? As if it would spell out the terms of a bribe?
What a piece of work this Ginther is, sounds like he’s desperately grasping at any straw to attempt to confuse the public into believing his side of the story.
You’re terrible at reading.
I understand that the limit of your ability to grasp information stops with a headline, but there is always more to each and every incident than just the boldest print. But then again, your type keep people at the tabloids employed so you do contribute to something.
To be clear, you feel that:
1 – Someone who is resisting arrest, fighting with cop, puts gun in their chest, and has not only the cops but two maintenance workers fearing for their lives and;
2 – Someone with an extensive criminal history including a previous incident where he intentionally struck a cop with a truck again attempts to run over officers serving a warrant and;
3 – A man running around town literally hammering innocent people in the head then attacks an officer with the hammer compares to a cop being attacked and shot point plank multiple times while simply talking to someone at a gas station.
Your linky-links sure tell a story.. about you.
Another unprovoked and brutal attack on a police officer who was simply stopped at a gas station.
Which still has nothing to do with police brutality….
Absolutely no surprise that you present an ignorant disregard for the circumstances surrounding cop involved shootings as you gleefully cite as “police brutality” an incident where someone was shot by police after the victim had not only pointed a gun at them, but pulled the trigger. I’m sure you’re mourning the misfire of the weapon.
“JPSO officers went to the man’s home in the 3000 block of Destrahan Avenue. As they approached the home, the man came outside, pointed a semi-automatic handgun at officers and squeezed the trigger — but the gun did not fire, Fortunato said. A deputy fired once, killing the man, he said.”
Maybe your cop shooting heros should take better care of their guns.
Looks like another brutal police incident that cost two officers their lives.
I guess a good place to start the building process would be finding someone to run it. At least it’s a step in the right direction.
Meanwhile.. as we sit at our keyboards in our jammies bickering and calling forum posters idiots another cop pays with his life while performing his duties protecting the community.
No worries. Really, kinda obvious where you were going with that.
And yes, I would agree with you that not only incidents like this but the general attitude demonstrated by many towards those in police uniforms is contributing to an us vs them mentality.
One thing to consider is that most people start their day with a shower/shave/make-up before getting dressed to head off to work. Cops however add a bullet proof vest to their work wardrobe.
