From my reading seat this is a long, sad list of strange, thought disordered behaviors. Anyone county supervisor who, with serious intent, demands "round-the-clock patrols" from county employees is abusing the office. And anyone who, with serious intent, calls 911 and says that "my life is in danger" unless they remove internet content is more than a little unbalanced mentally.
The fake 911 call doesn't surprise me. Sorry, but this is kind of a thing in Tucson. I witnessed a fair amount of 911 abuse by people who just wanted the cops to come in and break up a nonviolent verbal dispute, or intimidate someone who disagreed with them, or resolve a customer service débâcle. There are a lot of people in the Old Pueblo who don't get that 911 is supposed to be reserved for life-threatening emergencies. I haven't seen this as much on the East Coast.
Also, you'd think that there would be a fair number of people who would cheer on Miller's war on Raytheon, considering how politically divided the city can be. I remember how vigorously the Tucson chapter of Food Not Bombs campaigned against the company ten years ago or so. I'm surprised the Weekly chose not to look into this part of the issue.
I'm not surprised that teen marijuana use in Colorado has stagnated or declined since legalization took place. For many teenagers, doing something that is wholeheartedly approved of by the law and/or your parents can be boring as hell.
