Re: “JUMP, Explained (Somewhat)

I hope there's areas geared more towards children. It would be nice to have a playroom for them!


Also is there a date set? Or maybe a month? Or even a year set?!?!

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: Stupid, Mean-Spirited, Malignant Things Gun Nuts Do

Gee, don't know what trial you attended. George Zimmerman did none of the things you described, except justifiably kill someone who was attacking him with life threatening blows. The Trayvon Martin was an innocent angel crowd perverted the justice system in Florida, and stupid rants like yours continue to do so. I am quite sure there are many facets of your character that are as distasteful as his. And, by the way, your writing sucks.

Re: “Boise Set to Renew Contract to House Suspects at Ada County Jail

Interesting that inmates also pay $35 per day. That's a gross profit of $105 per inmate per day, plus "booking fee". Seems that locking people up is a very lucrative business. Though, it was my understanding, that it's illegal to profit off of crime, in any way.

$70 per inmate, per day. In the real world, that's the price of a nice hotel room and a couple of modest meals. Considering the conditions in jail; poor quality food, threadbare bedding and then add in the profit from commissary, phone calls, SILD program et al, it seems to me that the Sheriff's office is making a pretty penny at the expense of the tax payer, the City of Boise and those who find themselves on the unfortunate side of the law, without giving much back in return.

Once upon a time, they called this brigandry but it seems sometimes, that words lose their meaning.

The jail houses 1,217 inmates. Jail deputies also run alternative sentencing programs like work release, labor detail, and community service, all at a fee for those convicted.

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: Stupid, Mean-Spirited, Malignant Things Gun Nuts Do

I am no supporter of Zimmerman, but this article (or whatever it is) is severely lacking in the fact check department. First: Martin was 17, not 14. Second: The Stand Your Ground law was never used as a defense in the trial. Third: Stand Your Ground laws have been used as defense more often by black people than whites. So, the contention that it benefits whites and was written so black people could be murdered is a sack of lardy horseshit.

Re: “Twin Falls Legislator Pushes Back Against Refugee Resettlement

One thing to note: The government has said that THEY have NO way to vette the refugees, specifically Syrian. So Carol and others who chastise others need to do to do the same of doing your homework. That is why a large part of Americans do NOT want them here, because it is a guarantee that there ARE terrorists using this huge relocation to get into OUR nation. That also means that they are in YOUR backyards as well. You want facts, how about Sharia Law over-ruling OUR nations laws just because they feel they have the right. Look at Texas. Its one thing to try and assimilate when you live in another country. It IS their choice to come here, for safety or whatever the reason. It is THEIR responsibility to learn and follow OUR countries laws, not their their own. There are innocents but there are also those who will do all they can to continue the war that has been going on in Syria and other countries, and ARE bringing it to America! Think on that. The safety of America is no longer, that for generations we have lived comfortably. We can no longer just be complacent!

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: Stupid, Mean-Spirited, Malignant Things Gun Nuts Do

Are you competent enough to write an article without obscenities? That requires a more complete knowledge of the English language so you can rely upon more sophisticated words, but, considering that is allegedly what you are paid to do, why don't you try it.

Re: “Boise State Fine Arts Building: Where Will All the Parking Go?

A Disney blue building on Capitol Boulevard is going to stand out like a sore them and take away from our beloved State Capitol. I can appreciate the University wanting to make a branding statement, but at what cost to the overall experience of the boulevard where the focus should be on the capital. That blue is terribly unfortunate.

Re: “(Not) For Profit

I was the Director of MRI Center of Idaho for it's first sixteen years and grew that to a 15 magnet operation from Boise to Seattle and all points elsewhere in the Northwest. We were know nationally for our MRI quality

I reported to the Board of Directors that included the hospitals in Nampa, Caldwell and was instrumental in bringing Holy Rosary on board. That board included 5 of the best physcians in Boise. I created the documentation trail that led the jury to it's verdict. I was deposed by 6 attorneys for 2 full days.

Sandra Bruce got exactly what she deserved. I know Roger Curran turn over in his grave the day that verdict was announced. God Bless you Roger, you were the best.
