Re: “Excessive Force or a Necessary Move? Marana Officer Hits Armed Suspect With Patrol Car

When did shoplifting, being mentally ill and suicidal become death penalty offenses? I missed the passage of this law, in a swat sniper situation a "order to kill has to be ordered" when did this officer get the "order to kill", when did he have the authority to decide he could kill this man with a squad car, I mean his actions cannot be explained as if he was merely going to disable the man, no non-lethal weapon was used, he used deadly weapon/automobile, now one can be sadistic, cold hearted, less than human and decide his mental illness suicidal ideology is sufficient to warrant a death sentence but then one has to wonder what kind of human being are you! I guess the good thing is we all do get judged one day by Jesus and I bet those who think this action was ok who cheer when someone is executed, murdered by law enforcement will have a rude awakening, eternity is a long time to pay for ones arrogance and ignoring what Jesus taught!

I think it was pretty amazing. Most times, in situations such as this, the criminal winds up very dead.

I have absolutely no sympathy for Valencia.

I must say, I've never seen that type of tactic used to catch a suspect. Is it actually a method, or did the cop make it up?

He committed multiple crimes using aggressive violence and when he became a victim of his own devices you cry foul? Nice journalism.

And now Marana Police get to pay for the private truck they hit, the wall they destroyed and the cost to repair the police car destroyed.

Re: “Kozachik Says He's Not Running for Congress

Let go of the national political theatre, folks.

I'm in complete agreement with Steve: he's done far more for me right where he is than he ever could if he heads off to the magical fantasy land of Oz / DC.

It's about bloody time Baja AZ took care of itself and minimized our national entanglements. Less is more when it comes to feds. Their main function appears to be robbing us economically while surrounding us with a police state. You think SteveK is going to make a dent in that? Since the Bill of Rights became toilet paper, the American state became the walking dead. Wait and see. I'd love to be wrong, but their mandate went out the windows in the '80's. They aren't anyone's government anymore, just a bunch of dysfuntional old lawyers titilating each other while they vie for the biggest checks from the lobbyists. Barber was a prime example. Just look at his voting record, it speaks for itself. I don't see how you turn it around when a majority of the American people don't believe in their own government. It's over baby, it just takes some time for the body to cool...

Re: “UA Proposes Tuition Hikes for Some Students; Make Sure to Share Your Thoughts on the Increases

Education was targeted 40 years ago for "job creation," and costs have spiraled out of control. Just look at what is spent each year by the US Dept of Education. I believe this year the budget is nearly $80 Billion. Are we getting our money's worth?

Great job Officer. That was quick thinking that stopped a "suicide by cop" attempt by this individual. You eliminated a lot of heartache for a lot of people.

Re: “Republicans Freaked Out About Hillary Clinton Running for President & The Daily Show Thinks It's Hilarious

Lol! David W. I cannot tell you how many people have said to me(referring to Ducey), " I didn't know he was going to do ________". I said," Well he said he was going to do some of that so knowing Republicans, couldn't you assume he would do a lot of that?". Very poorly informed people put him in and want him out now that he is in and know what he is doing and going to do". The sad news is you must be glad about what he is doing. Very sad. You must even think the robbing of education funds is good. So really people, consider the source in whatever he says.

As for Hillary .... she knows a lot. I think she will do a good job with all her experience. She does know domestic and international policies. She supports President Obama's policies on negotiations and reconciliation. I think she may be a little more of a warmonger but heaven help us in that regard if a Republican gets in. I think the only Republican who has any brains is Cruz and he uses what he knows poorly. Lots of bad decisions have been made by smart unwise people.

Re: “A Reminder of Hillary Clinton's Stance on Central American Unaccompanied Minors; An Annoying But Unsurprising Response

What you are forgetting here, and so many others forget, is that it is precisely because of U.S. meddling that children and others are forced to migrate.

We are spending billions of U.S. taxpayer money to fund a failed "Drug War" in Central America, train and arm the corrupt military and police of Honduras and Mexico for what? All it does is add more fuel to the fire, and if you even bring up the fact that these policies need to be reevaluated, all you get is silence.

Foreign policy cannot be separated from the immigration debate.

Re: “A Reminder of Hillary Clinton's Stance on Central American Unaccompanied Minors; An Annoying But Unsurprising Response

I do not always like the decisions made or opinions expressed by the lawmakers I vote for . However, I step back and look at the big picture and I will vote for Hillary in a heartbeat over any Republican. I will let my opinions be known to her as I do to President Obama when I do not like something like the TPP. I think he will go down in history as a great president and I think he has done some great things. As for illegals and what to do about them? I have witnessed them brought to different states by companies for cheap wages so I have no tolerance whatsoever for people who cry about the illegals. Work on the companies and a lot would change. They do this at resorts, building construction companies and farms. I wish this country would quit being so hypocritical. Companies want cheap labor and people want cheap goods. Then they don't want them to have anything. We need reform but let's start with honesty. I do not know what to do with all the children sent here. Do we put them in foster homes? Where else would they go? Is that necessarily good? It is not easy.

Re: “UA Proposes Tuition Hikes for Some Students; Make Sure to Share Your Thoughts on the Increases

To save money at the University simply get rid of the over abundance of middle level administrative managers. When an administrative position is created to manage a small group of people and then that person has to hire two assistants to manage the staff that they were hired to manage, no more actual work gets done but plenty of money flows out. People forget that the actual role of the University is education and research. All staff should be there to support that. Educators should be priority.

Ha ha ha is right David W--our state ledge lies constantly and has stolen more money from public education than you can imagine. And despite a lawsuit that ruled AGAINST them, not a single one goes to jail, not a single dime gets paid. Only in Arizona, where the frontier mentality still adds up to Joe Arpaio and corruption on a daily basis.

No one has a solution that they are acting on. Actively seeking and deporting will not happen. The status quo is that illegals come across the border like drugs, many different paths, and are deported only in the most extreme cases (somewhere between random and vindictive). So is the Taracena solution that the borders be open?
