Thanks, T: Well said and exactly the point. Our world is full of keyboard ninjas.
Aging and poorly maintained infrastructure, along with aging and inadequate tank cars, (few tanks of double walled construction) has to be a consideration. The other difficulty is most recent accidents did not involve crude oil as we know it, they contained tar sand bitumen which is not the same. http://priceofoil.org/2015/03/02/transporting-tar-sands-dangerous-shale-oil/
Of course, namvet, statements by a duly elected State Attorney, a Baltimore Mayor and City Councilman are somehow not warranted in the current situation. What did you want them to do? If they remained silent would that then create an opportunity to defame them as well. You reveal much about prejudices by your comments.
The right of the people, peaceably to assemble in order to consult for the common good is a constitutional right protected by the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution: - See more at: http://islandsofla.org/wp/?p=4156#sthash.ADbN1oQx.dpuf
Namvet: "Send a few thousand protesters to Iran and watch the outcome?" This is an attempt to deflect from the subject. What you are saying in this statement is that if we protested in Iran we would have our heads bashed in. What's your point? We don't live in Iran, we live in the United States of America and have Constitutional rights to redress our grievances in the public square.
My previous comment should have been addressed to NamVet, just in case that wasn't clear.
I agree and apparently Mr Donovan does not understand County government either. The Sheriff does not control the budget, it is set forth and controlled by the Commissioners, as are all department budgets. Personally, I'm not sure why a person in Hillsboro believes he should tell us how and whom to vote for.
As usual, you have missed the context completely. Maybe a course in comprehension would serve to enlighten you. Read the letter again. He clearly states Unarmed (no physical threat to officer) and then proceeds to claim that obviously the person is a hooligan and deserves to be executed. We need to start demanding that our officers live within our system, which does not allow execution for perceived crimes.
I'm appalled by this letter and it's implications. In two short paragraphs, Mr. Castleman, indicates that all UNARMED people should be summarily shot dead in order to protect the officer, who can obviously discern that the person is a Hooligan. Seriously?
What a great idea. We could also stop all irrigation along the river for a time and see how well that works for those heavily invested in their crops.
