One observer predicts that we will soon hear:
"If you like your gun, you will be able to keep your gun. Period"
Listen carefully to what is said, then decide. Will you buy a used car from this man??
It would be nice if Linda told us what she really WANTS.
If my count was correct, she typed "I WANT" ten times in her letter.
Please, Linda, what do you really want??
NO on 522 That's what I want.
Clarify something for me.
If Obamacare is the law of the land, passed by both houses of Congress and signed
by the President and affirmed by the Supreme Court, where does Obama get the authority to modify it by picking parts of it for modification? Where does he get
the right to give waivers to his political cronies while making life miserable for
the majority who don't want this train wreck?
Make no mistake, as time marches on more people will be without health insurance
than before this "Affordable" care act was passed .
If it's the LAW shouldn't Obama respect the LAW and
let it succeed or fail on it's own merits??
Thought my comments were very complimentary regarding the Under Sheriff, and the Sheriff. I don't know if the Sheriff will run for re-election. Stay cool. Stay tuned. We believe there will be lots to consider before marking the ballot if John runs again.
I think you probably understand that I don't necessarily take the positions portrayed by the Union-Bulletin in it's articles about the Sheriff's Office. Hopefully, a more balanced approach by the Union-Bulletin will result in accurate presentations
of the facts which will help the people to understand and appreciate what this community is up against and the efforts to make Walla Walla a better place.
I didn't support John Turner for Sheriff. Don't know if I will for re-election. However,
if he continues to bring in people of Eddie Freyer's caliber, we cannot ignore his ability to surround himself with qualified people that Walla Walla can view as great assets in our fights against gangs and criminal elements. I witnessed the presentations at the Coroner's Inquest and agree the investigation was professional, thorough, and unbiased. Mr. Freyer can take pride in his leadership in this investigation . The press can take all kinds of accusations and throw them against the wall to see if something will stick, but this cannot be considered journalism. After meeting the next member of the Sheriff's Command Staff, I was impressed and see nothing negative about his joining the Sheriff's Office. I encourage John Turner to write a similar OP ED on him as soon as possible so we can appreciate the caliber of
experienced law enforcement people John Turner has recruited.
Regarding the traffic signal, I believe there was a contract or lien to get payment.
I believe in all the legal wrangling the past few years the City put pressure on the owner/bank and got paid for the improvements as a lien on the property and the County got some back taxes paid. Don't
know what funds/accounts the dollars went to when received. A call to the City Manager and the Assessors office could answer these questions.
With your training and experience, your clarification of the law helps thoughtful
people get a clear picture of why and when law abiding folks get to exercise their
rights. Not only to carry, but also to lawfully use, guns to defend and protect.
Clearly, your explanation counters the thoughtless "Rant" put forth by the original
letter writer. You hit it perfectly. The original letter was hysterical.
Here's my theory. The person actually had 60 seconds to get through the
area captured by the camera. (Not 30) Certainly not intentional, but if the person was just outside the area ( on the right side) when the camera first took a photo and then walked to the point where his photo was taken in the next 30 seconds, then he had 30 more seconds to exit to the left before another photo was snapped. You can walk quite a distance in 60 seconds. Seems logical to me.
I don't know what qualifications you have to be able to broadcast what the NRA's
definition of "Law-Abiding" might be, or to declare that permits are handed out
without background checks or other safeguards before issuance.
Actually, your letter is just a "Rant" because you don't know what you are talking about. Please, seek professional help. You need counseling.
You might want to update your knowledge on this matter by reviewing
Washington RCW 46.612.370 Paragraph 3) that says:
"The driver of a vehicle upon a highway with three or more marked traffic lanes need not stop upon meeting a school bus which is proceeding in the opposite direction and is stopped for the purpose of receiving or discharging school children."
Looks like it's legal on the four-lane part of Rose but illegal on the two-lane part.
