Re: “Police Dispatch

Once again you seem to think that the suffering of an individual with a serious mental illness is entertainment. I keep checking for some real humor in this section. I am sure that we have enough crime in Tucson to find something more appropriate to print. Humor need not be cruel.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Police insiders say this has become common occurrence because of the proliferation of drugs and the rampant abuses. Compassion can only go so far when the officers safety, well being and even lives are violated from someone on meth or crack. Drug abusers are costing Mexican and Central Americans their lives.

Re: “Police Dispatch

This man obviously has serious mental health concerns. What is so entertaining about this? Please share about something else for a change. Perhaps you could report how the officers are attending educational seminars to enhance their compassion in responding to this type of situation.

Re: “Police Dispatch

A couple of times I have had to call 911 on a extremely impaired driver at around 5 am on my work commute and the police never show up.

Re: “Police Dispatch

I find nothing funny about the horrors of drug addiction. This is a sad story.

Re: “Police Dispatch

There is something wrong here. This woman is clearly mentally disturbed, but she gets arrested for disorderly conduct and assault. What is wrong with the Sheriff's Department? Are the deputies completely uneducated about mental illness?

Once in jail, what happens? Will there be a mental capacity exam or will she simply be warehoused for a few hours and then released? Are the deputies using disorderly conduct and assault charges as easy ways to get her off the street without taking the time to do a mental commitment process? That's what it looks like.

Let's hope she doesn't return and shoot the manager.

Re: “Police Dispatch

I have no idea why this, ahem, alleged progressive weekly rag, continues to publish this section whose only purpose seems to be making fun of the mentally ill or those with drug or alcohol problems. When did the KTS (keep tucson sh**ty) crowd abandon the non judgemental, tolerant, moral superiority that is professed? Very Trumpish..

Re: “Police Dispatch

About 40 years ago, while on mushrooms, I managed to find my way into the stadium. My mission was simple - look at the view from the top of the nosebleed section.

It was dumb then, and it's still dumb now. I was lucky that I didn't fall and die or get seriously injured, and that I didn't get caught. This guy was just lucky that he didn't fall and die or get seriously injured. Let's face it - of the two possible negative outcomes, getting caught is by far the most benign.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Why did you choose to use the image of a US Army Ranger, a highly motivated, volunteer, elite member of our military to illustrate this article when the text described the disturbed civilian individual as a being dressed in khakis and a buttoned up shirt? Was this just poor editorial judgement or a not to subtle intent to equate Army troops with derangement? Fake news? You could do better than this.

Re: “Police Dispatch

I can find one word you're probably thinking of Kenneth, although your tongue (fingers) is (are) probably tied.

Today's secret word is...

(Imagine the suspense and the accompanying drum roll in your head.)
