Re: “Police Dispatch

You’re confusing mental illness with poor social skills, racial bigotry, misogyny and inappropriate behavior, you know – an asshole.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Let's see.... You do a beautiful article on Wendy and her mental illness and this article demeans someone who likely has mental illness. Which way do you want to have it? Can't have it both ways, Weekly.

We’re they sure that was dog food? I’ve seen “Fried Green Tomatoes” and the last thing you want to do it piss off a little old lady.

Re: “Police Dispatch

I used that "Do you want to......" line a few times at he old Maverick and the Bum Steer back in the '70's, (when Tucson was really a fun town) It worked a couple of times with really not that many tries. Tucson is still a fun town sometimes.

No means no, really, no means no, seriously, no means no, not know but no, again, no means no you know? No, you don’t know, but no means no, I’m not kidding, no means no…

Re: “Police Dispatch

We are applalled at the appearance and the manner in which this story was presented. Other than for reader entertainment why publish such an explication when one can reduce this story to a discription of someone who is screaming to the world ' please I need help, I am in pain.' It is neither humorous nor muckraking especially in the light of any useful suggestions on the writer's part.

Re: “Police Dispatch

I thought she sounded like she needed emotional and psychological help rather than public humiliation and arrest as well. The thing is, I don't know that the mental health system is a whole lot better than jail. (Remember the suicides at Sierra Tucson?) Well, anyway, I hope she has a peaceful and healthy future and wish her well.

'cept they don't really have those mental hospitals anymore. Now it's just jail.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Seems like she should have been taken to a mental hospital.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Indiscriminate and spontaneous screaming is just a taste of things to come after the November elections – no matter who wins.

The lady should contact Stolen Horse International for assistance in searching for her horse.

Re: “Police Dispatch

They should've explained that you cannot get the free bag if you do not participate, accepted the cash payment, sold you the food and moved on. If you wanted to not participate the only consequence should've been losing out on the free bag. The fact that you have done it one way in the past does not preclude the business from changing the way they operate, especially when it comes to free bags of food, which they probably have had issues with people gaming them on.

I suspect your role in this escalation was probably more than what you write, cameras usually do not capture audio so the cameras won't prove anything in any way. In the end it is 3 employees word against yours. Comport yourself better in the future and recognize that if you do not agree with their business strategy ask kindly for a manager to explain the changes to you or you can take your business elsewhere. Fighting with low wage employees makes you the ass.

Re: “Police Dispatch

No, a cash paying customer should not have to give their name. If I owned that business, those 3 would be fired.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Good for him. Businesses are entitled to set rules and if you want to refuse to comply they are within their rights to refuse you service. And that type of language has no place in society. Had you been reasonable they could have explained the benefits afforded you through their computerized history software.
