Re: “Hate Crime Training for Police Is Often Inadequate, Sometimes Nonexistent

There is no such thing as a "hate crime". A black man harms a white woman, or the same black man harms a Chinese man. There is no difference. Harm was done and the person who committed the harm needs to be brought to justice. Only idiots, and those who are truly racist and bigoted, will try and make the harming of one person worse than the harming of another. Hate Crime labeling is nothing but moral deception and the creation of "protected" classes of people which will lead to abuses of class.

Re: “Public Outcry May Have Nixed a Job Training Facility for Veterans in Boise

That building has been a bar/restaurant/event center for 30 years. It has served the community as a gathering place and has been a wonderful amenity, when run properly, and was part of the reason many bought homes in the area. It needs to stay as a wonderful centerpiece to Lakeharbor's serene ambiance. The proposed use is completely mismatched with that location.

Re: “Boise State Signs on for Varsity eSports

Playing mobile games is the most enjoyble activity for kids and adults. The technological superiority battle between smartphones and tablets continues in the mobile gaming industry. It is unfair not to include friv 2 if the best games list is made regardless of which operating system friv is operating.

Re: “Boise City Council to Hear Proposed Electric Bike Rules, Asks for Public Comment

I have 3 bikes: mountain, electric and Fat. Electric as I live up an extremely steep hill. My electric bike is my suburban errand/grocery shopping bike, it has a tacky milk crate on the back. Even though it has a battery assist, it is still exercise; it weighs 90 lbs. I ride it frequently downtown. Top speed is 15 mph, which I almost never hit. Same thin skiing, I am slow. I ride it on the greenbelt occasionally to get from store to store. I very occasionally ride on sidewalks(never in the downtown core area) when it is patently unsafe to be on a street w/o bike lane infrastructure, such as Fort Street. I am always courteous to pedestrians, and yield to them. I am a pedestrian and car driver also. I believe electric bikes can and should be accommodated in Boise.

What time is the hearing? Is there a link for public comment?

Motorized is motorized. There is no need to change regulations that exist. No sidewalks, no Green Belt, no trails that prohibit motorized vehicles. Simple really . . .

Re: “Boise City Council Approves 840-acre Foothills Purchase Near Stack Rock

I think you've missed an important point about this story. While it is significant that the City of Boise is buying this property and thereby expanding recreational access and land preservation. The original open space levy was for $10 million, but through wise use of the funds and leveraging its influence the City of Boise has managed to acquire roughly $40 million in property and/or access. That's the headline! That's an extremely good return on investment for the city and the Treasure Valley as a whole. It's also part of the reason the most recent open space levies passed by wide margins.

Re: “Feeding More Money Into the Meter in Downtown Boise

Studies have shown time and again that increased parking meter rates and enforcement hours do not hurt businesses and instead help them. Please look at the most recent studies of Phoenix and Sacramento. Furthermore, customer surveys very clearly show that the majority of people are more concerned with easily finding a place to park and that paying for that spot is convenient vs. parking for free.

Re: “Feeding More Money Into the Meter in Downtown Boise

Shouldn't it be the goal of City Council to entice more people to enjoy the downtown area as oppose to deter them? Increased parking rates and steeper fines definitely deters me.

Re: “Feeding More Money Into the Meter in Downtown Boise

If the Boise City Council again approves increased meter fees and by adding evening and Saturday fees myself and my family will simply stay away from downtown Boise and go elsewhere for our evening and weekend shopping and dining.
This is simply a bad decision for your downtown businesses!

Re: “One Officer, Scores of Tickets and a Familiar Racial Disparity

I am appalled. Some folks feel empowered by Mr. Trump's Election and behave accordingly. Facts verified by credible third-party reporting agencies. I am tired of racism, criticism based upon religious beliefs or sexual orientation. We are all humans and we are all different. That is exactly how the Good Lord intended us to be. I've read the Bible many times. I've translated portions of Ancient Greek and Ancient Hebrew. And no where, absolutely no where, do I find any statements whatsoever by the Good Lord advocating such terrible behavior. I do read the Good Lord advising us to love the Father with our whole heart and soul, and then to love one another in the same fashion. No footnotes. No exceptions. No qualifiers. Each and every one of us has an obligation to treat each other as we wish to be treated. This is so basic that even Trumpettes and current Republicans should be able to understand as the wording confines itself to their comprehension level----single syllable words.
